Jago has been waiting a while to find his forever family, a year to be exact! It is no fault of Jago's why he is still in the rescue, he just has not had any luck finding a committed family that will help him be the best pup he can be. Lots of families fall in love with his cute face and don't realize that he has been through a lot and needs a family that is committed to his well being. Jago needs a family who will give him time to settle in, continue to work on his training and not overwhelm him. Jago came into the rescue as an owner surrender, both his parents were undergoing cancer treatments and Jago needed someone that could give him more time and attention, they were heartbroken to surrender him but knew ABR could help find him what he needed.

Jago is a very handsome and affectionate young boy! He does have some energy and would do best in a home that is active and with a fenced in yard. He is your typical playful, silly, wiggle butt boxer who loves attention, sometimes pestering you until he gets it. He LOVES his toys and can easily entertain himself as long as he has several to choose from. He has great house manners and is not destructive, he does well with free roam or can be crated.

Jago looks to his people for direction and needs a patient leader to help guide him in the world. Although he seems like a big, strong and confident dog, he has not been socialized too much and is afraid of new things, which makes him bark. Jago has been in a 4 week training program to help work on his reactivity with new things (passing people, cars, other dogs on walks) to help him realize the world is not so scary. We sought out a training program for Jago, because we wanted to help him find a great home and knew getting him the training needed would open up more opportunities to find him the best home. He has made HUGE progress and we are so proud of him! Jago comes with lifetime training at this facility in Atlanta so he can continue his progress.

Jago is house/crate trained and walks well on a leash. He is learning how to meet doggy friends, though we feel he would do best with a female fur sibling or as the only dog in the home for now so his family can concentrate on his needs and continue to work with him. Because of Jago's energy and size, he is looking for a home with older kids or no kids. He is looking for a family that is committed to work with him at home and also continue to take him to training sessions as needed at the facility in Atlanta, which has already been paid for by ABR. Please don't just fall in love with this boy's pretty face, he needs someone in his corner that will give him the family he's been waiting for and that we promised his surrendering family we would help find. Jago has so much love to give - he is a diamond in the rough just waiting for the right family to polish him up with training, guidance and love! If you would like to meet Jago and maybe attend one of his training sessions to learn more about him, then fill out an application and mention JAGO. If you are already approved and meet his requirements, just email the adoption coordinator and let them know you want to meet.

Hello from Asher. This guy is just waiting to be your shadow! He loves being with his foster mom and dad. He does well in his crate if you're nearby, but isn't fond of being in there when his people leave. Ash LOVES car rides and playing with toys (especially tennis balls and things that squeak). He knows Sit, Wait, and Easy. We are working on more commands. He enjoys going on his short walk outside to potty, so I think he'll love going on longer walks once he's cleared through his Heartworm treatment. He loves his food and water, but we've not seen any aggression with food (or toys). I think he would do best in a home with someone who works from home or is not gone for long periods. He doesn't seem to be much of a jumper, but he's a bit of a barker when he's by himself, so I'm not sure how popular you'd be in an apartment complex. I also think a feline-free home would be best as of right now (but this could be subject to change over the next 5 - 6 weeks depending on how they both behave) If Asher sounds like the sweet boy for you, mention his name on your adoption application.

Glitz is my name, and girl power is my game! This pretty, 5-year old brindle is a super strong gal who jumps (literally!) at the chance to chase squirrels and play fetch. She's an eager learner who picks up routines quickly and would love to have an owner who would teach her commands and tricks. And she's super sweet too – she loves to climb into your lap for belly rubs and gives plenty of kisses in return. This gal likes to be queen of the house, so she would do best as the only dog in the family or with a fur-sibling who didn't mind a diva coming in and doing her thing. She would also do great with older children since she loves being active and would fit in with fellow energetic beings who love to play outside. She's crate trained and is working hard on getting 100% house trained with her foster mom - she's already 99% there! She doesn't bark but will definitely use her non-verbal cues to let you know when she needs something. She'll be starting heart worm treatment in a couple weeks and should be ready for adoption in mid-November. If this glam-girl-looking-for-her-forever-family sounds like a perfect pairing for you, be sure to put Miss Glitz on your ABR adoption application!

Hello boxer lovers! Meet Chipper, aka Mr. Wonderful! Chipper came to ABR as an owner surrender because his family could not longer give him the life he needed to be safe. Due to allergies in the home, Chipper had to move outdoors, and when the family would leave, Chipper would get out of his invisible fence in search of new friends. For fear that he may get hit by a car, they reached out for our help to find him a family that could allow Chipper back in the comfort of a wonderful home. Chipper is house and crate trained, although he is a little hesitant with a crate in a new space initially. He is a dream on the leash and loves to go for walks around the neighborhood. Chipper is dog friendly (big and little) and does great with kids! He can be your typical boxer with selective hearing but once you look at that smushy face, all is forgiven! Chipper loves to be with his people and is a very social dog. He would do best with a family that can shower him with love and attention. Chipper has been known to get over a privacy fence if left outside unattended, he will come looking for his family, so he must be watched when outdoors and not left alone outside. This lover boy is sure to bring lots of slobbery kisses and happiness to a special family. If he sounds like the pup you've been waiting for, just mention him on your application. If you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and let them know you want to meet Chipper!

Hello, my name is Fancy. I am estimated to be between 7-9 years old with the mind of a 2 or 3-year-old. I came to ABR as an owner surrender and spent most of my time outside. I am very curious and want to know about everything I've missed out on these past years, everything is so new to me. I love toys especially thick rubber toys I can chew on and shake. Sometimes I get confused and think everything is a toy! I am very fond of people and other dogs. I follow my foster mom everywhere and love to get her full attention. I love belly rubs and going for walks. I could use some leash training and an easy walk harness because I get so excited I tend to pull on the leash. I do know some basic commands, sit and lay down but sometimes get distracted because I want to play. I'm a little on the smaller side than most boxers, but big on love and personality.

I don't bark, but may give an occasional bark at a stranger outside. I'm not as much of a licker as most boxers either, but I will give kisses. My foster mom was told that I was dog friendly by my previous family. I do well with my older/smaller foster fur-brother. We play tug of war with our toys. I also see other dogs on my walks outside and am friendly with everyone I meet. I have not been exposed to young children or cats, so I don't know how I would act, but based on my sweet disposition, I bet I would be great! My foster mom says that I am very sweet and well behaved!

I have done very well with house training, but my foster mom takes me out frequently. I'm not sure how well I would do holding it for long periods of time. I do great in my crate which is good since I just started my heartworm treatment and will be on restricted activity/crate rest for the next 6 weeks! I can't wait to finish my treatment and get back to playing, exploring and taking walks outside......oh and finding YOU...my forever family! If we sound like a perfect fit, then just mention Fancy on your application or if you already approved, ask the adoption coordinator to be put on my list!

Hi, my name is Joey Tribbiani – How you doing? I am a sweet, distinguished older gentleman who likes to eat, get my head scratched and sleep most of the day. I came to Atlanta Boxer Rescue in not so great shape, I had a bad respiratory infection, allergies and a pretty nasty infection in both my ears. But with some medicine and TLC, I am so much better! I am an older guy just looking for a retirement home where in return I can give you my love and loyal companionship. I do have some arthritis in my knees but that is much better too with some Rimadyl and joint supplements. I am house trained and LOVE my crate. My foster mom made me this great pillow that I love to sleep on, I love my crate so much that I am a little protective of it when people come to visit and will bark at them but that's it. I would probably do best in a quieter home. I get along great with my furry housemates but because of something called heartworms I have not been out and about much. I am on my last week of recovery and will be ready to find my forever home. If you are looking for a low maintenance senior Boxer, ask for Joey T. on your application!

Marco....POLO! Are you looking for me? My foster family said I am as sweet as they come. I love people and getting attention. I'm a little personal space challenged, which means your space is my space! I love getting on the sofa and laying on top of you, I just love being with my people. I am good with my older, smaller foster fur-brother but can get spurts of excitement and knock him down, which probably means small children too, so I will need work on that. I am happy and content just playing with my toys, the squeaky ones are my FAV! I have been told that I am a perfect gentleman, very loving and handsome, my foster mom says I'm the George Clooney of boxers! I am house and crate trained and do wonderful in my crate. I am currently being treated for heartworms and half way through my recovery. I can't wait to start meeting families and find my perfect match! If you think I am what you are looking for, just mention POLO on your application or if you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and let them know you would like to be on my list.

This beautiful girl is Lucy. Lucy's owners are moving outside of the country very soon and she needs a new home! She was found 3 1/2 years ago as a small puppy so we think she is just about 4 years old. She is house, crate and leash trained. Lucy is very friendly and loves everyone she meets. She loves her people and kids big and small, though she has knocked over smaller kids without meaning to. She's very smart and learns commands quickly. Lucy hasn't been properly dog socialized yet, so while she is friendly with dogs she meets on walks, she would do best as an only dog right now. She likes her crate but would also do well with free roam once she's adjusted to her new home. She is fully vetted and ready for her forever home!

Brutus is a total sweetheart who gets along with everybody. He is dog and cat friendly and good with people of all ages. He would do fine as the only dog in the house or with another dog that's not too wild and crazy. Some of his favorite pastimes are car rides, giving kisses and getting attention. This boy enjoys nothing more than being loved on. Brutus is a low energy, low maintenance kind of guy. He enjoys taking it easy and relaxing around the house. Brutus doesn't bark (unless he needs to go out), doesn't jump on people, and doesn't get rowdy. He enjoys playing with his toys from time to time, but what he craves most is attention from the people he loves. He would do best in a home where he won't be left alone for long periods of time. Brutus is crate trained, but it's not his favorite place to hang out. He is comfortable in the crate when his foster mom is in the room, but he has successfully escaped the crate when left alone. Brutus is very strong and will need some work on leash walking. He does much better when a harness is used. Brutus knows "sit" and will probably know a few more basic commands before he gets adopted. He's pretty smart ;) If this low maintenance, easy going lover boy sounds like a good fit for your family, please mention Brutus on your application. If you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and let her know that you would like to meet Brutus.

Hi Everyone! My name is Larry and I am loving my new life! At first, I was very timid and scared, but not I am thriving and learning what it's like to be loved. My foster mom thinks I'm a goofball. I like to play fetch in the backyard and go for walks in the neighborhood. I walk very gently on a leash and love it when she lets me give her hugs and sloppy boxer kisses! I will need some training with basic commands like sit, stay, etc but I am catching on quickly. I am still a little clumsy and have not been exposed to much in my previous home...like stairs so I am still trying to figure that out. I will need a patient and loving home to help work with me and acclimate me to the life a dog deserves. I do well in my crate and I have been doing well with house training. I have not met my foster fur siblings yet except through the fence and we all seem to like each other. My foster mom thinks we can have a play date this weekend so she will have more to update soon. If I sound like a good catch and you would like to "reel" me in, just mention Larry on your application.

Hello World! Meet Lauren. This sweet little girl has come a long way in the short time in her foster home. Lauren came to ABR with several of her siblings from what we call a breeder home. It looks like Lauren had a litter or two and never had the opportunity to be a normal pup and experience all the things a pup should. Initially, she had to be carried to go outside/inside, but she has started to come out of her shell and exploring on her own, everything is so new to her. She is very attached to her foster mom and warming up to her foster dad....but she's still unsure about the small human in her foster home, a 7 year old girl. She would do well in a quieter home that would allow her to come around on her own terms and take things slow. Lauren needs to feel secure and build trust with her people. She would not be the ideal pet to take to dog parks or doggy daycare.

Lauren is crate trained and does well in her crate, she actually prefers it and is also house trained, so far no accidents in the home. Her foster mom takes her out regularly and Lauren knows exactly what to do. This lil' girl loves to be outside now, although she had minimal exposure to outdoors, but she loves to run and bounce around chasing the ball. She just discovered toys this week and has met her foster fur siblings. She does very well with her foster fur siblings, but has not really engaged with them much, she's still settling in. She could do well in a home as an only pet if she was given the attention she needs and not left for long periods or with a well mannered, calmer fur sibling that would not overwhelm her. Every day Lauren gets more comfortable and it's great to see her personality unfold and the joy she gets discovering new things. She is a sweet girl looking for a family that is willing to put the time and commitment to ensuring she feels loved and safe. Lauren does not know any basic commands, and stays close to her person, but because she is still timid, needs a very patient family. She does not do well on the leash and freezes, so a home with a fenced in yard will be ideal so she can explore in a safe/contained environment. This lil' cutie is hoping there is a perfect match for her! If that's you, then mention Lauren on your application!

Ollie here! Just wanted to stop by and say "Hi" and introduce myself. I am new to the rescue and settling in my foster home very well. So far my foster family says that I am really awesome and doing great with everyone I meet! I am living in a foster home with 4 kids and 3 other pups, so getting lots of attention and socialization. I am more of a laid back type of guy, who loves to give kisses and cuddle! I do well with my foster fur-siblings but would prefer ones that are not too active, sometimes that can be annoying. I love exploring the backyard and enjoy a little sun-bathing....Since I have heartworms, I cannot be too active so lots of R&R right now. I was just treated this week and will be available to meet soon (6 more weeks) and can't wait to find my forever family. If you are looking for a mature, sweet and lovable guy, then mention Ollie on your application.

Hello Everyone, I'm Quinn!  I am a fun-loving petite boxer!  I love all people and do well with my foster fur-sibling(s).  I have not been tested with cats but I think I may harass them, so a no cat home would be best. I have LOTS of energy and love to play and run around!  An active family would be best for me and a fenced in yard to get this playful energy out.  I am gentle and do well with kids.  I take treats very nicely and have shown no food or toy aggression concerns. I am crate trained, but it's not my favorite place to hang out. I am working on my house training. My foster mom says I'm a smart girl who will catch on quickly, but my new family must be consistent and watch for my signal.  I would love a family that will shower me with attention and has another fur-companion for me to play with but my fur-sibling will need to be very tolerant since I'm young and playful and not good at taking hints when they are ready to relax. I am still new and settling in, but I can't wait to find my forever family.   I am getting ready to start hearyworm treatment this week, then will be ready to meet you in 6 weeks!  If you think we could be a great match, just mention Quinn on your application.  Already approved?  Just ask the adoption coordinator to add you to my list.

Chico is a beautiful 2-ish year old fawn male that craves human and dog companionship. In his foster home, Chico gets along with two 50 lb dogs and a 27 lb dog. It is also known that he came from a home with a little Chihuahua companion. Chico rarely actually interacts with the other dogs, but seems to enjoy their presence. Chico does not like being left alone, and will try to escape from a fence to get with another dog. Therefore, an adopter would need a substantial fence if Chicco is to be in the yard unsupervised at all. Chico is a low to medium energy boy. He almost has housetraining mastered, but will need some work refining that. Chico enjoys just lying around his foster home, but will occasionally show his playful side. If you think Chico would be a good fit for your family, please mention him on your application with Atlanta Boxer Rescue.

I am the amazing Apollo! A six-year-old, 75 pound, hunk of hugs and kisses. I just came to ABR after my owner had to sell the farm I was living on due to health issues. I love to be outside but am house trained and very well behaved. I can sit, drop, shake and lie down on command. I love kids and am pretty good on the leash so even my 11-year old human foster sister can walk me.

I'm also good with other dogs and cats. My foster mom thinks I would do well in a home with other animals and lots of room to roam. But, she says I would probably do just as well alone, I'm just that chilled out. Even though my dog foster brother sets a bad example by jumping on the furniture, I know that's not my place and just relax on the carpet.

I'm happy to be with my humans as much as possible but I don't get overly excited or jump up. I love to eat but don't get aggressive around food or toys. I will need to see an eye specialist due to what looks like an old injury to my left eye, just to make sure everything is ok, but other wise I am a strong, healthy boy.

If you are looking for a chilled out, low maintenance best friend, Apollo is the dog for you. Just fill out an application and mention Apollo. Or, if you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and ask to be added to my list.

Meet Baby! She is as sweet as they come and would love nothing more than to be your "Baby". This girl was found by a good Samaritan after witnessing her being thrown from a truck. Luckily someone was in the right place at the right time! Despite this horrible act, Baby loves people! She loves cuddling and getting lots of attention. Her current foster home has 2 boxers, a male and female, and does well with both. Baby can be a little jealous when attention is being given out (gives a warning snap to her foster fur-sister) so she may do best as the only pet or with an experienced dog owner that understands this behavior and able to work with her. She seems to be very tolerant of energetic pups and despite her jealousy of attention, Baby loves to be the Momma to her foster fur-siblings, cleaning them often, although she is the youngest of them! She has not displayed any food or toy aggression and does well on a leash. We are unsure how she is with cats or small children since her foster family do not have either in the home. Baby is house trained and crate trained and has not shown any destructive behavior in her foster home, she has been a perfect house guest. We have confirmed that Baby is deaf, although it does not affect her ability to love and manage the world around, she has adjusted well in her foster home. Baby had FHO surgery back in October and is recovering well. We feel she is ready to find her forever home with a family that is willing to do physical therapy exercises with her and possibly open to land and water therapy in a veterinary rehabilitation center. Baby also has some arthritis in her joints which she takes daily supplements for. Baby would love to find her forever family and is hoping they are looking for her too! If you are searching for a super sweet low maintenance kind of girl, then just mention Baby on your application. If you are already approved, then just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you want to meet Baby.
