Birk loves attention and is getting along well with his foster sister, a senior female boxer.  He is crate trained and housebroken.  This handsome boy deserves a family that will love him in his senior years.  He still has a lot to give and will be a devoted companion to a very fortunate family. 


Birk is still looking for a forever home.  He is beginning to come out of his shell and showing a more playful side.  Birk is a sweet boy who loves to be out in his yard.  He also enjoys going for walks.  Birk is getting along well with the senior female dog in his home. 


Birk is a sweet boy who was transported recently from South Carolina to his new foster home in Delaware.  We will update his page as soon as his foster family learns more about Birk.  Included are some updated photos.

Meet Birk (as in Birkenstock), a true southern gentleman!  Despite a rough start in a high kill South Carolina shelter, this guy is sweet as pie.  Birk loves all people, other dogs, and cats.  He walks very well on a leash and clearly once had a home.  Birk was recently treated for hookworms and heartworms.  He is now well on his way to good health.  Birk loves car rides and doesn't mind a crate.  He has some gray on his face, but he still has plenty of energy.  Birk is a wiggly and happy boy.  He is a rare find that could fit into any home situation.

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read our Adoption Procedure, by clicking on the link at the top of this page, then fill out an online application.

Boxers and Applicants are not matched on a first come, first served basis. Not all applications are approved. On average, it takes between a week and 3 months to adopt a Rescue Boxer to an approved applicant, depending on your personal circumstances and flexibility.  

Not every home is the right match for a boxer, and matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and theirs, increases the application review time and adoption time. 

And yes, we realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on, may be adopted before you're approved.   Should your first choices all ready found their forever home, we want you to advise us at your home visit of other dogs you are interested...  Or let us suggest a few that we feel will match your home.  That is what we are good at.   And be happy for the ones that have been placed... and know that there are way too many fantastic dogs waiting in their place.

Our non-profit organization is wholly comprised of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing our wonderful Boxers placed in loving, permanent homes and given another chance for a happy life. Our process may seem slow, but if you are patient, we will try to provide you with a devoted, loving companion - a Boxer.

We hope you feel that the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
