Bessy has been doing wonderful in our home and her personality shows through more and more as we get to know her.  She has been more playful and LOVES a furry, squeaky toy.  Bessy will play with it by herself or will bring it to her foster brother to play tug of war.  She loves to be loved and is such a cuddle bug, as you can see in one of the pictures.  Bessy loves to explore the backyard and lay in the grass in the sun to relax.  She would make a great addition to any family.  Bessy adapts well to any situation and a family will be lucky to have her!


Bessy is doing well in her foster home.  She is good with other dogs and fabulous with children of all ages.  Bessy has spurts of energy and runs around like a puppy, but quickly relaxes and just wants to be cuddled.  She is a very affectionate girl and gives a lot of kisses.  Bessy also loves belly rubs!  She is housetrained and has been a pleasure to have in the house.  Although Bessy doesn't actively play with the other dog in her foster home, she does make a great companion for him.

Bessy arrived in the shelter with a microchip that was traced to a rescue in North Carolina that had disbanded.  The shelter was able to obtain information about the adopter, who was contacted and said they were no longer interested in keeping Bessy.  When our volunteers met Bessy, she was sweet and playful.  She loves to play with toys and will retrieve a toy as many times as you can throw it.  Bessy has a face that is always smiling.  She is friendly with people, great with other dogs, and doesn't have a mean bone in her body.  Bessy enjoys riding in the car and has already gone on a hike with her foster family.  This girl is going to be a wonderful companion for a lucky family.

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.
