Rocco is adjusting well in his foster home.  He is an active, young boy who is getting along great with his new foster sister.  Rocco doesn't like the crate, but he has been fine being left out with free run.  He would love to find a forever home with a fenced yard and hopefully a female dog to play with!

9/04/16 -

Rocco was surrendered to rescue because of a 30 lb weight limit where his owners lived.  He has been well cared for and the owners chose to work with rescue to make sure he found the best home possible.  Rocco has lived with children and is reported to be good with other dogs.  He is housebroken and crate trained.  Rocco is an energetic boy who is looking for a home with a fenced yard and somebody who has the time for a puppy this age.  Rocco is currently at our vet's office where he will be neutered and brought up to date on all vet care.  He will then be arriving at his new foster home.  We will post more information once Rocco gets settled in and his foster family gets to know him.

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.
