King is doing really well in his foster home.  He has already gained 6 pounds.  King has learned to sit and shake.  He is doing well in the crate when left alone and is now housebroken.  King loves running in the yard with his foster brother.  He has the perfect level of energy and also enjoys relaxing inside.  King is a much different dog than when he arrived in rescue several weeks ago.  He is now just waiting for his forever family to find him!

10/17/16 -

King was surrendered to the shelter following a cruelty complaint.  This poor boy was left tied up outside with no shelter and he was very thin.  Thanks to our volunteers and his foster home, King is getting a second chance at a better life. 

King is settling in well at his foster home.  He is getting along with both other boxers.  King is eating great and doing well with crate training.  He has also picked up housetraining quickly and lets his foster mom know when he needs to go out.  King doesn't see that well at night and relies on the other dogs to help him down the deck stairs into the yard. This senior boy has a very loving personality and is wonderful meeting new people.  We will continue to update King's page with his progress.

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.
