Taz is such an easy boxer!  He stays happily in his crate during the work day and sleeps quietly through the night on his dog bed in the bedroom.  Taz is housebroken and goes to the door to let you know he needs out.  He has great manners in the house.  Taz enjoys playing with the other dogs, but he will also entertain himself by chasing a tennis ball.  Taz has done great meeting new people.  He generally follows me around the house with the occasional boxer lean to get some scratches.  He will then lay happily at my feet.  When Taz gets excited, he does jump - so a home without really young children may be best.  Taz is a very happy boy - his nub wags nonstop!

9/12/16 -

Taz was brought to the shelter by a landlord and never reclaimed by his owner.  He did well on his evaluation with other dogs at the shelter.  Taz just arrived at his new foster home, where he is living with two other dogs (male and female).  His foster mom wonders if he might be younger than estimated, as he is super playful and full of energy.  Taz constantly wants to play with the other dogs.  He also enjoys chasing tennis balls and playing with his toys.  Taz appears to be crate trained and housebroken.  He has only been in his foster home a few days, so his foster mom will update his page once she gets to know him better.

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.
