11/12/16 -

Dalton was found as a stray after being hit by a car.  He is estimated to be around 3-4 yrs old.  Dalton is a sweet boy who is wonderful with adults and children of all ages.  He is also great with other dogs. 

When his owner did not reclaim him, Dalton was transported to rescue to have surgery on his broken leg.  He received a plate and will need to be restricted as he recovers.  The orthopedic surgeon feels Dalton will make a complete recovery. 

Dalton is in a temporary foster home, but is looking for a foster home that is home more often to help him through his recovery.  He will have two rechecks in the Baltimore area. 

Please consider making a donation towards Dalton's care.  We need your support to continue helping boxers like Dalton who require more extensive medical care.

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.
