Buddy is in urgent need of a foster home.  He is currently in a boarding kennel and his behavior is declining there.  Buddy is blind and is very stressed in this environment.  He would do best in a quiet home with no other dogs or with a submissive female and somebody experienced in managing their interactions.  Please offer to foster Buddy and help get this boy back into a home environment!


Buddy visited the ophthalmologist today, but we didn't get the news we were hoping for.  His blindness is irreversible and due to retinopathy in both eyes.  Buddy's pupils responded incompletely and he had no blink response.  The right eye has a nearly complete cataract and the left eye has a partial cataract.  There is a giant retinal tear and retinal degeneration.  Buddy was prescribed non-steroidal eye drops, which he will receive twice daily.

Buddy is currently looking for a new foster home.  He does well with other dogs, but does need managed carefully at this time when food is involved.  He navigates well around his environment and is a sweet boy.  Please contact us if you are able to provide a foster or forever home for Buddy! 

10/05/16 -

Buddy was surrendered to the shelter by his owners.  He appears to have cataracts and doesn't see very well.  Buddy is reported to do well with both cats and other dogs.  He loves people and his nub wags nonstop.  Buddy traveled well in the car on his transport and is settling in great at his foster home.  He is in foster with two other dogs, large and small.  Buddy will be scheduled soon to see the ophthalmologist.  After his visit, we will know more about his vision problems and prognosis.

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.
