In additional to being adorably handsome, Tyson is a playful and energetic young boxer. He was surrendered from a loving home and has only known kindness and love in his life. He loves to play with dogs and toys. He is house and crate trained. After the first few minutes of excitement, he walks well with an easy walk harness. He is a smart boy. He knows how to open doors with levers. He would do well with an energetic person or family who can spend time with him. He does great with the boxer in his foster home and would do best in a home with an active dog and a fenced in yard for lots of play time. If Tyson sounds like your kind of dog, mention him on your application or to the adoption coordinator.

Hi everyone! My name is Louie. Before coming to ABR, I was living a rough life on the streets. I wound up with a few wounds that are healing now and I picked up a parasite that was taking all of my nutrients, but the doc has put me on some medicine to get rid of them and I’ve already put on 7 lbs! I also ended up with a nasty cough (Kennel Cough), but I’m taking medicine for that too to help me get better, so I should be healthy and ready in a couple of weeks!

I was a little scared of my new life because everything was so new to me. Car rides, warm beds, little people, other dogs, and especially cuddles are all things that I have grown to love in my first week with ABR. I’m so excited to learn to love even more things too!

I’m still a little cautious of my fur, foster brother who was rescued with me. He and I have shown each other a little “brotherly love”, but I have learned that these are bad manners and that when my foster mom and dad say “No” it really means no. I’m sure in time, I will learn to trust and be able to play with all dogs, but for now, I would likely do best in a house with a female. I get along great with both my fur foster sister and skin foster sister, who is younger than me. My fur foster sister and I enjoy our days romping around the backyard. At night, I enjoy cuddles with my foster parents and skin foster sister on the couch and in the bed.

I am crate trained but I don’t particularly like going in my kennel when my foster parents have to leave or when its time for bed, but I settle down pretty quickly for a nap/sleep. I know how to sit and I am working going potty outside every time, I am getting so much better! I am pretty good on a leash because I like my skin people to lead the way. Since I am still young, I have a lot of energy and love to play! A fenced backyard would be best for me but I will be happy with long walks also.

If I sound like a fit for your family just mention Louie on your application or let our adoption coordinator know you want to meet me! I’d greatly like a chance to show you what a great addition I would make.

This cutie pie has finished up his vetting and is ready for adoption! Django is estimated to be around 4-6 years old, and is great with with kids. He likes being outside lounging in the sun or loafing on the couch. He also does well with dogs his own size, and will actually do best in a home with another medium to large sized dog. Smaller dogs and cats seem to trigger his prey drive, so unfortunately no small friends are recommended. Django is a smart boy and is learning commands very quickly. He sits patiently at the door on leash and waits to be released, and sits like a gentleman before being fed. If you think Django would be a good fit for you, please let us know!

Hello boxer loving peeps! If you are looking for a fun, play all day, entertaining bundle of fur, then that’s Bruno! Bruno is new to ABR and is settling in his foster home. The one thing we know for sure is that he has ENERGY! Bruno could easily entertain himself all day with his toys. Did we mention he LOVES his toys! He does well with other dogs but we do not think he likes the kitty’s....he likes to bark at them as loud as he can…over and over and over and over, you get the picture. After a hard day of play, Bruno will conk out right next to you and is out for the rest of the night, this is when he turns into the cuddle monster. Bruno is young and active and will need a home that can keep up with his energy and help him work on his manners. Bruno does need some work on the leash, so a harness would work best with him. He is also house and crate trained and seems to catch on quick to voice commands. Bruno does well with kids, but probably not suited for a family with small children, as he may accidentally knock them over when playing and running around. He would do well with an active family that can help him get out all his energy in a fenced in backyard and maybe even go for hikes, walks/runs on occasion. If Bruno sounds like your type of guy, just mention him on your application or if you are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator know you want to meet Bruno!

The time for their arrival was here! At last! This passel of babies would be here where I can care for them – help them learn about the world, teach them how to stay safe, how to hunt, like their tiny faces! Oh the excitement! Quickly turned to hollow aching. One beautiful baby is suckling but while labor pains continue, no other babies are coming. Dad is in a state. He has been on the phone for days talking to many doctors. I know he is upset and worried about me but he doesn’t need to spend so much energy worrying about me. It is my job to take care of him. Take him out on walks, lick his ouchies, put my head in his lap for a pat. Oh this labor hurts! Something is wrong. Dad is so upset now. He called a rescue, I can see the relief in his body – he found us help. He hugs my neck and tells me all will be OK. He gently puts me in the car and kisses me goodbye. I want to lick his hand to thank him but the pain – I can’t focus. The awesome people at ABR transport me straight to a surgeon waiting to help me deliver these babies. I am so worried about my little girl – will she be OK while I am delivering the rest of the puppies? I wonder…if they know….Well, to make a long story short, I am almost done raising my 5 beautiful babies. My foster mom calls them the ‘miracle babies.’ She smiles and scratches my ears and tells me I am a good momma. I am watchful of new people around my babies but I absolutely love humans! The tall and short kind. I like other dogs too but I don’t like them getting too close to my babies. I have met all the dogs in my foster home and I think they are all swell. I know how to make my family happy and always use the outdoor bathroom. I know some English – like my name, sit, mom is teaching me another word ‘shake.’ I really like my dinner plan here and eat real well. I absolutely love going outside on walks. That is my favorite time of day! I am real careful not to rush my humans, I stay close by and pay attention to what they need. Mom says I need to get some shots when the babies stop nursing and have a spot taken off and I will be ready for my forever home. There is a feline that lives next door, I try to chase him home whenever I see him. I try to always be a good house guest. I don’t make messes or touch things I should not, well unless they leave me something on the counter. Sometimes I just can’t wait to see what they got me! I am good at sounding the alarm when someone new is too close to our home. I do like my cuddle time with the humans and sometimes I ask if it is my turn to cuddle yet. If you are looking for a more mature lady with strong manners and proper etiquette, please stop by and say hello. I would really love to find a family to care for. Could that be you?

Hi I'm Diego and I'm your typical fun loving boxer. I get along great with my foster fur sister and brother. My sister loves to play with me. I try to boss her around sometimes, but she doesn't like that. I would love a home where I could be boss.

I love my walks so much. I get really excited when my foster mom or dad go to the door and grab my leash. I start to jump around. My foster parents are teaching me to sit and be calm at the door before I get my harness on and go outside. I walk really well on my harness. I don't pay attention to the dogs that bark in the fences along the walk. I just keep going. I've never been around a cat, but I think I would like to chase it so I would do better with out them.

Since I like to eat everyone's food after I eat mine I'm fed separately until my foster siblings are done eating. Then once we are done we can all hang out again.

I love playing with the older kid at my temp fosters house, but I do like to jump when I get excited so I probably wouldn't do well around little kids. I'm working on my jumping though. I just get so excited sometimes!

I'm learning some basic commands like sit and down and I'm pretty good at coming when you call me too. I'm really good at sitting before the door opens to go outside and sitting for my food too. My favorite thing to do is to help you cook. I just love food. I'm an excellent helper, and I will taste anything you give me and let you know if it's good or not. When I was at my temp fosters house she fed me broccoli and I loved it. My other favorite thing is to hang out with my dad. I follow him everywhere. I just love him.

I had some lumps removed a few days ago that I'm healing up from right now, but after that I get to go to my forever home. If I sound like the perfect boy for you put my name on your application!

Jasper is a handsome, super sweet, sensitive, loving boxer boy. He has been friendly with every person he has met. He is well-mannered. He knows sit, no, off, and free (his release command). He has learned to wait for his food and wait to get out of the car. He walks great on a leash. He is learning “leave it,” loves car rides, and loves to play. His favorite toy is a tennis ball. Jasper will fetch it and bring it back. Sometimes, he even drops it at your feet. Jasper will also catch the tennis ball mid-air. Watching him play with a tennis ball is so much fun! He loves to be petted and be near you. He is house trained. While he does not love his crate, he will go in (sometimes after a good shove), protest for a few minutes with pathetic whining/howling, and then settle in. However, he does so well now left out of the crate, that his foster mom leaves him out while she is gone. Jasper will go to the door when he needs to go out. Sometimes, he even rings the bells. His foster home does not allow the dogs on the furniture and Jasper has learned to respect that. He still tries to get on the furniture. With a “no,” he gets off or does not get on. Jasper could easily be persuaded to join his new family on the furniture. He likes the Great Dane in his house. Jasper just wishes she was more playful. At 7 1/2, she is not quite the match for his energy level. Because he values his “things” (attention, food, water), he would do best as an only dog in a home. He might also do well in a home with a large dominant female (>100 lbs). His ideal home would have a fenced yard in which to play and someone who is home more often than not. (No cats as his prey drive gets the best of him).

If you think Jasper sounds like a great fit for your home, please ask about Jasper. You will be so happy that you did. www.atlantaboxerrescue.org.Already approved? Just mention JASPER to the adoption coordinator!

HELLO THERE! I’m PUMPKIN! I was named that by my little human friend who wanted to be Cinderella and I was her puppy Pumpkin. It was also close to Halloween. I was rescued from a local shelter with a cold and a massive tumor hanging from my leg. Luckily there was a foster who saw my pleading face and opened their home and heart to let me stay for a while. I was super shy at first, my foster wasn’t use to having an older dog in the home with their 2 younger boxers in the home. I was hesitant until I began trusting my new family. My personality is out the roof now. I love running in the back yard with my fur siblings and I enjoy having my little human feed me and give me treats. I spend most my days sleeping in my bed in my foster dad’s office while he works. Let’s talk about my grey face. The vet thinks I’m a younger dog with premature graying. I have a preexisting condition which no one is really sure what’s going on. Sometimes I knuckle over my back feet. I have been correcting them and it’s getting better every day. I’m not in pain but some people wonder what’s going on. I still go on 3+ mile walks daily and play outside in the back yard. My fur siblings think I’m crazy because I get so excited to run around. I’m a truly happy girl. I’m a crate trained and house trained. My family leaves me out because I’m so trusting. I’m great on a leash and I love going on car rides to pick my mini human up from school everyday.MY family has also figured out that I would rather play with the kitties and I’m sometimes not so nice to them. I just don’t understand them. If you are looking for a low key great companion to hang out with you on the couch or play outside with I’m your girl! Please mention me on your application or let the adoption coordinator know you would like to meet. Can’t wait to meet you!

Rex is a 5 year old, sweet, happy boy who loves his people! He will make a loyal companion for some lucky, dog savvy person. Rex gets along with some dogs, and loves to play with his companion in his foster home. His play can be rambunctious, therefore a home without young children is recommended. Rex is housetrained, crate trained, and walks nicely on a short leash. He knows ’sit’, ’watch me’, ’check in’ (to return to his foster mom), ’turn around’, ’heel’, ’let’s go’, ’this way’ and ’leave it’. He loves toys, tug of war, being silly, soccer balls, snuggling, and the couch! Rex is a strong, active boy who likes to run, but also has nice house manners in his foster home. He would be fine as an only dog or with just the right companion dog. A fenced yard is a must for this active boy. Rex is up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and neutered. He has been diagnosed with a low grade heart murmur, which has been evaluated, and does not require medication or special treatment.

My name is Jolie and I am a middle-aged, easygoing boxer girl looking for my forever home. My foster mom says, “I am a very good girl, because I go with the flow and am happy just about anywhere and with anyone (except cats)” I’ve gone through a lot of changes in my life and just know how to roll with the punches! I am currently the only dog in my foster home and don’t mind the extra human attention, but sometimes I miss having a dog friend to play with. You see I am usually pretty laid back and love to lie on my dog bed and catch some Z’s. When I got bored or have to go potty, I just tell my foster mom with a tap dance and a bark and she takes me outside or throws my ball for me. I’m pretty smart because I have even learned to throw my ball for myself. I have also never had an accident in the house, because I know you’re only supposed to go outside. I have very good manners on my leash, but sometimes I see a squirrel or a bird and my excitement gets the best of me; I just have to chase it! For this reason, I would be better off in a home without cats. I do like dogs, but I need a nice slow introduction, so I have time to decide if I want to be friends! I had a boxer brother in my last home that I loved to run and play with, so my ABR family is confident that I can still make new dog friends! In fact, I met a new dog friend on my leash the other day! My foster mom had to remind me that it’s rude to bark at other dogs and I was able to sniff and say “hello” without a problem. If you’re looking for an easygoing 4-legged companion mention me “Jolie” on your application.

Hi! My name is Sable but my foster mom calls me Lovey because I am super lovey. I’m beautiful, playful and really enjoy being loved on. I don’t need much; my favorite things are treats, affection, napping on the sofa, going in the backyard, and playing with my toys. I’m crate trained and house broken and perfect in the house. I’m 9 years old as of March 19th but you’d never guess it. I get around well but do have some hip and knee problems that I take supplements and pain killers for, the vet says that’s the best thing. Otherwise, I’m a super-healthy girl! Before coming to ABR, I spent most of my life locked up in an outdoor pen without much love or contact with people. I really deserve this second chance at life and am adapting well. Because of the way I lived most of life, I’m still learning to trust people and am protective of my foster mom. I need to be introduced to new people and can easily be won over with treats and affection and then I’m all wags and boxer wiggles. I’d do best with a fenced yard to play and do my business instead of walks where I run into other dogs and strangers. I don’t care much for other dogs and should be an only dog. I haven’t been around cats so, I’m not sure if I like them. I don’t like change and can get stressed out so my new home needs to be calm, routine and kid-free. I’m sweet and have become a happy girl since coming to ABR. I know I’m not for everyone, but I deserve love and affection in my golden years and have a lot to give. Can I be your Lovey?
