Zoe is an affectionate girl and is a joy to have in her foster home.  She gets along great with all of the other dogs.  They play, sleep, and eat together.  Zoe has discovered cats and likes them also!  Zoe would sit in your lap if you let her and is a great cuddler.  She is learning not to jump when she meets somebody new.  Zoe knows sit and waits patiently for  humans to enter a door first.  She also walks well on leash.  She is crated a few hours a day when nobody is home.  We are surprised this beautiful, young girl hasn't been scooped up yet!  Apply today if you are interested in adopting Zoe. 


Zoe is getting more and more comfortable with each day.  She gets excited to see people and we have nicknamed her the "wiggle worm."  We are working on her jumping and she is responding well.  Zoe is a smart girl and eager to please.  She walks beautifully on leash.  Zoe has been left with free run for short periods of time and she has been fine.  She is still getting crated at night and for longer periods of time.  Zoe gets along great with all of the other dogs in her foster home.


Zoe was transported into rescue yesterday and just arrived at her new foster home, where she is living with two other dogs.  Zoe slept through the night without any problems.  She is such a sweet girl and is getting along great with everyone!  Her foster home will update her page once Zoe gets settled in and they learn more about her. 

9/12/16 -

Zoe was surrendered to the shelter to find a home that can provide more time and attention for a puppy this age.  She is reported to be good with other dogs and children.  Zoe is also reported to be housebroken.  The volunteer that transported Zoe from the shelter indicated that she was super sweet and traveled well in the car.  She will be spayed this week and brought up to date on all vet care.  Zoe will then be arriving at her new foster home this weekend.  We will update her page with better pictures and more information following her transport.

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.
