Floki is a gentle, sweet girl who we believe is a few years younger than we originally thought.  Her main goal is to please people.  She is crate trained and has been mastering commands.  Floki is very responsive to instruction.  She loves other dogs and is currently living with two other boxers.  Floki can be timid at first, but quickly warms up to new people.  She loves to play with her toys.  We are practicing "four paws on the floor," as she loves to stand and give hugs.  Floki is going to be the perfect companion.  She is just waiting to show her new family how much love she has to offer.

Floki and Baxter were found as strays in Tennessee.  Floki arrived yesterday at her foster home in New York.  She will be spayed soon and brought up to date on all vet care.  The shelter reported Floki was an easygoing, sweet girl.  Once we know more about her personality, we will post a new update.

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.
