Annette was surrendered to the shelter when her owner passed away.  She did very well on her evaluations with other dogs.  Judging by her condition and the fact that she probably has been kept outside, Annette has not had it easy.  She appears to have been bred many times.  During her spay surgery, the doctors discovered a large tumor.  The biopsy came back as a benign granulosa cell tumor.  Annette was also on the verge of pyometra, so we really did get to her in the nick of time!  She will have a 4-6 week recovery due to her extensive surgery.  Annette's body was very anemic and she is being treated for an upper respiratory infection.  She has arrived at her new foster home and is settling in well after surgery.  Annette is making great progress with each day and will soon get her staples removed.

Message for Give a Dog A Name:

Thank you, Catherine Del Spina, for giving Annette her name.


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.
