Hi, my name is Ace. Yes, I do have one blue eye and one brown eye. Although I’m very young, I’ve already fallen on hard times and spent half of my life in an animal shelter. My foster mom says I’m very sweet and probably calmer than most boxer puppies, but I still like to play with my fur sister (Emma) and my very big foster fur siblings. I absolutely love rolling in the grass and giving you goofy looks while laying on my back! After play time, I am ready to snuggle with you and take a nap. I remember that the animal shelter was very scary, so I would appreciate a home with lots of patience and the understanding that I will learn to love you best when you will sit down with me on my level. I haven’t had an accident in my crate yet, and I’m doing very well with my house training. I would love a furever home with a loving and caring family, maybe a fur sibling, maybe a human sibling, and lots and lots of puppy teething toys! I’ll be available once I get rid of these tummy bugs and my upper respiratory infection and then get neutered. If you want to meet me, put Ace on your application. You won’t regret it!

Hey there everybody! My name is June! I am getting comfy in my foster home, and I'm loving these people called my foster mom and foster dad! They are SUPER cool! I had a bit of a cold, but it's all better now! I'm fully crate trained, house trained, and know some commands like "sit" and "leave it" and "come." I've met all my foster fur siblings, and we get along just fine. I get a little nervous when they get excited, but my foster mom says it's probably because I never had a fur brother or sister before. I think they are pretty neat - after a slow introduction, I now follow them around to see what all they do everyday! In my spare time when I'm not checking out the yard, I love to SNUGGLE and WIGGLE! I bet I'm the best wiggler you'll ever meet! If you think I might be a good fit for your home, please mention me, JUNE, on your application!

Travesio is still very much a puppy in both his energy level and his play style. He enjoys other dogs and wants so badly for them to play with him. His very exuberant play style can be off putting to a lower energy dog. He is extremely good natured and is a typical goofy boxer. Travieso hasn’t met a person he doesn’t like. He is very people friendly and will be a lap dog if you let him! He will need some help learning to be gentle with little ones. He doesn’t know how big he is, and he is strong. He’s still very young and hasn’t yet learned much self-control. Travieso has a pretty low prey drive. His foster has never seen him chase a squirrel or chipmunk or bird. While Travesio does not appear to have had any formal obedience training, he is a quick learner and wants to please his person, (especially if there is a treat involved) and should be easy to train. Travieso enjoys walking and exploring outside. He’s pretty good on a leash given some direction and treats. His new family will need to continue working with him so that he can become awesome on a leash. Travieso does great with house training. He has access to a doggie door and can let himself in and out as needed. Without a doggie door, he would be fine as long as he was let out regularly. Travieso does not love being in a crate, and he may whine and bark for a while before he settles down. If he can see you, he’s pretty quiet and tolerant, but if you are out of sight he is more likely to be noisy. He does enjoy chewing on antlers, which is a nice way to keep him occupied while crated. Even though he doesn’t love the crate, he’s not yet trustworthy uncrated as he may chew inappropriately and has been known to be a counter surfer. Overall, Travieso is a young, goofy, fun and playful boy who needs some work on house manners, but who learns quickly and wants to please.

Hi, Chance here. I stopped by to see if my Superfamily is ready for me yet! Is that you? I know you are super because you are here looking for a boy like me to save instead of buying a baby from a farm somewhere. Because of you, I was saved by ABR instead of left to die like so many others. My momma says I have the face only a mother could love. See, I came to ABR with no fur, no meat on my bones, no idea of what living in a house requires, well, I was just a hot mess! ABR is helping me get past the many parasites that were living off of me. My fur is even growing in! Momma says I am ‘fawn.’ I don’t know what that is, but is sounds like ‘special’ to me! It must be because I don’t have to hunt for every scrape of food anymore. And I don’t have to sleep in the ditch. And all those bugs in me are moving out! I feel so much better, it makes me want to jump, and play and act like a kid! Well, Momma says I AM a kid, so I should act like one! I hope she is right! I love to chew on toys. She says I am a power chewer! Just like I am teething! I love toys that make noises! SQUEEKY! They are the BEST! Momma says I get to start a new life where I get to live the good life. I have never experienced that, but the way she talks about it gets me so excited! Is that my life with you? Would you take me for walks? Would you play with me? Would you let me give you kisses? Sit next to you with my head in your lap? I have never had a home of my very own before. I don’t know what I am supposed to do in my own home but I would really love to learn if you would teach me! I am very curious! I like to check out what is up high (on top of the counters), down low (in the trash cans), in the toy box, wow! There is just so much to life I never knew about. I really need someone that can love an ugly kid like me that no one wanted, that only ABR was willing to take on. I can show you there is a prince hiding under this toad if you will just give me a chance! Please put Chance on your application today. PLEEEASE! I will be a good boy and worth the wait! I promise!

Desperately seeking hero! Hi! I am Calypso. I am the cute little girl with my tongue hanging out. I came to ABR a mess! Mange, ear infection, parasites, heartworms, neglected, starving for food and more importantly love! I have never known an easy life but would be willing to learn anything you want to teach me. Please just don’t talk mean to me. See, I cannot hear your words, but I get your emotion from your words. I am used to taking care of myself. Things have been horrible until ABR, but now that you are here, I know things are going to get better! ABR has been taking real good care of me and giving me lots of food, getting rid of all the parasites that were taxing me, and teaching how to be a good pet. I really, really want to be a good girl for you! I would love to spend my days lounging with you and kissing you and feeling your gentle pets on my head! I love our walks and all the things I discover on them! I have a lot of learning to do and I need a patient human to teach me what you want me to do on our walks, in the house, well just all the time. I learn very quickly! I have never had the privledge of living in a house so I am still trying to figure out all the rules about where to potty, what I can and cannot get on, how to get my human to sit down and look into my eyes. I just LOVE looking into the eyes of my hero! I can tell when you love me! I can tell when I upset you too. I must have been a very bad girl before because I have not been loved or taken care like my foster momma tells me I deserve. She is helping me learn commands, she says I am so smart, I learned sit in just 3 tries! I try oh so hard to sit calmly when she comes to let me out of my crate in the mornings. It is hard, but she says I do a very good job! I came to ABR with another boxer about my same build. We know how to play real well with each other. There are other dogs in my foster home and they seem OK too. Since I have always had to take care of myself and food was very hard to find, I have become a pretty good huntress, so momma says other animals I may see as prey (food) are probably not a good idea. I am doing very well at staying dry in my crate and I am almost accident free in the house. Since I came in with family, my Momma says I would probably do best in a home with another dog to keep me company. If I sound like I might be a good addition to your pack, would you please be my hero? I will show you my cutest smile and love you forever and ever! Please put Calypso on your application today! Thank you and I love you!

My name is Calvin and even though I am new to ABR, I’ve settled right in to my foster home; it’s sure better than animal control and animal control is way better than being on the streets.

I’m a good boy and get along well with the large pack at my foster home, I really like having playmates. We run, play tug-o-war and keep away and just have the best time. I don’t particularly like getting in the crate but a treat convinces me to go in and settle down. I know it’s proper to go outside to do my business and I’m trying my best to get that perfected, I only had 2 accidents and that was when I first got here. I had a small growth on top of my head but Mom has already taken me to the vet to get it removed and my incision is healing nicely. The biopsy results are in and the know on my head was just a cyst.

That’s about all for now. Mom will update as she gets to know me better. If you think you may be interested in adding me to your family, mention Calvin on your application or if you’re already approved, call the Adoption Coordinator and let her know.

Dec is a super sweet and calm boy. He loves his fur sister and his favorite thing to do is give her neck boxer nibbles. He is house trained, and crate trained. He knows how to sit, lay down and we are working on stay. He is a super fast study. He likes to chew bones, play with toys and chase balls. He likes to let you know if he hears something new and gets excited to meet new people. He likes to shadow me where ever I go in the house, but if I stay long he will go back and chill with his fur sister. He loves to cuddle with dogs and people. He is great with our 21 month old wild baby girl :) Good with small dogs and not sure of cats. He walks well on a leash with a halter. He is a strong boy for sure though. He has a great personality. We know you will love Dec once you meet him!!

Tawny is the most loving, gentle, playful little girl you could ever imagine. She is only about a year old, so she has a lot of puppy still in her. She loves to play hard with her foster sister Bindi and has the almost limitless energy you'd expect from a puppy, but she still runs to her human if things get a little rough or if she gets confused. She still says 'Hold me!' a lot if the world gets a little big, but she's the first to go investigate anything that might be interesting - or edible! She is also a very calm girl when she isn't actively playing, and just loves to lay against you if you sit down long enough. She is a little confused about the whole housetraining thing, but that seems to be more because her foster sister is in a diaper (partial paralysis) and since she copies Bindi in everything she does. She's just confused - she will pick it up quickly with structure, because she is a super smart girl! She gets along with everybody, and has a low to medium prey drive. Mostly she is just the most gentle boxer she could be and doesn't want to hurt anything. She is mildly interested in the cat but really, that's because the cat eats the most interesting food - not because she really cares one way or another about the cat. She goes in the crate with a little nudging, and doesn't cry. Actually, though she does like to bark, Tawny almost never cries. Her tail is usually going a mile a minute, and she's constantly ready for the next wonderful thing that's going to happen! She's the eternal optimist, and such a happy little girl. Tawny would do well almost anywhere she went, but she does really, really love having a foster sister to play with so she would probably be happier in a house with other fur sisters or brothers. Tawny is a little girl - about 35 pounds now. She has been spayed and chipped and is ready to find her forever home!

Hi everyone! My name is Riley. I am a sweet, laid back, loyal girl that is currently living with a kitty cat and an 18 month old baby. Sadly, I am losing my home through no fault of my own and just want a family who will love me furever. I am a happy, little love bug and have been told I do the boxer wiggle quite well (aka: the kidney bean dance). I love love love being with my people. We can play, watch a movie or just take a nap. I am crate trained and know commands like shake (with both paws), sit and lay down. I love to make my humans proud and have been very receptive to training. I do need to get a little more comfortable on a leash around other dogs as I am protective of my family because I love them so much. I will need to be either walked on a leash or have a home with a 6 foot fence as I am part bunny rabbit and can leap over a 4 foot fence. I have lived with other dogs but can sometimes get a little bossy so a slower introduction to any other fur kids would be really appreciated. All I want to do is cuddle and wiggle and please. I will love you with all my heart if you just give me a chance. I am healthy and ready to go to my new family. Can that be you? Please...

Hi, my name is Dutch. My foster mom tells me every day what a sweet, handsome boy I am! I've been living outside for the last year and a half, so I'm a little hesitant about meeting new people, but once you get to know me, I'm as happy as can be! I will need someone who is patient and can give me lots of love and attention. I get along with other friendly dogs, but not cats or other small animals. I will need some training and patience -- but my foster mom says I have a lot of potential! I am crate trained and house trained, though I do have separation anxiety so I must be crated when you're not at home, and I would do best with an owner who is home most of the time. I prefer women, though I am getting more comfortable with the male-humans my foster mom has introduced me to. I do pretty well in car rides, and I know how to "sit" and "shake". I bond very quickly with my caretaker and want to be wherever they are! And I LOVE walks! I get so excited when my foster mom gets my leash out! I'm also a great guard dog, and I will let you know if someone is on the property. My favorite way to show you I like you is to lick your face and give you lots of kisses. All I want is to have a forever home as an inside dog, with a family that will love me just as much as I love them!

Hello my name is Gus. I am a big teddy-bear of a dog. I love my humans! I just want to be around you and be your companion at all times. I am super easy going and laid back. If you want a couch potato while relaxing in your home I am your boy. I would enjoy a family that has kids that will play with me and love on me. Or I would enjoy somebody who is home often as I get lonely without companionship. I love to wake you up every morning at 6:30am for a good walk and bathroom break. I am healthy as can be and I have a good appetite and no illnesses. I am ready to go right now to a loving forever home. I promise to bring joy to your home. (From foster): I will be sad to see Gus go. He is such a good dog and will be a guardian and friend to whoever will love him. He was an owner surrender because the long work hours left Gus home for 12 hours a day by himself. This dog hasn't barked once in the 2 weeks I've had him. He likes to go for walks and smell all kinds of new stuff. I take him out morning and night for exercise and once in the middle of the day for bathroom break. He is not good with cats or small dogs. He will have to meet any existing dogs (hopefully large breed) to see if they are compatible. He would love being the only dog so he can get all the attention! He is completely house-broken and requires no training. He loves for you to take treats with you while exercising also. He loves car rides and besides a little slobber once in a while he is a very low maintenance boy. This dog couldn't be better for a home wanting to add a beautiful companion. He is up to date on all vet needs and he will be your best friend in about 2 days from the time you adopt him. If you give this dog a loving forever home I promise he will give back ten-fold.

Now accepting applications! Only the best need apply. The best would include a home with another pooch friendly pal for wrestling, cuddling, and time occupation while the humans are away at their favorite game ‘work.’ Must have tools of the trade (toy box full of toys – I prefer any that involve time with YOU!) Must be willing to travel – although I have been a very sick boy, I still want to be out and about and absolutely despise being locked into confined spaces. Slow sauntering walks are the BEST! OH Especially if there is a wading pool I can roll around in! I get so excited by nub is a blur when the leash comes out! I am an easy going guy as long as you don’t try to ‘tie me down’ (crate me away from the family). A best home might have children – I absolutely LOVE them! But then I also love all people and all dogs. So I guess best home would be full of ‘loveables!’ Additional qualifications, sleeping companion (any warm body will do), exercise buddy (I will keep you accountable), patience, and teacher (I have no experience in being an obedient pooch so I need someone who will teach me. I want to be all you want and need from me but I need a teacher. Previous applicants (my foster mom) says I have the unfortunate need and experience to take matters into my own hands, so counter surfing, walking (or not) when I choose, and chewing on items (non toys) are attributes I currently possess. !) I am quickly learning house training rules, commands, and how to be a good walking companion! Once this cold is in the past and the heartworms expelled, applications will be processed promptly! If you qualify for the ‘best’ home, please put Leo on your application!

I'm a sweet little snuggle bug. I don't like to leave my human's side. I'm pretty laid back but I don't like to share my human attention - can you blame me - I'm not used to getting all this attention! I have the cutest little tongue that sticks out most of the time and adorable big brown puppy dog eyes that will make you melt.. I love hugs and kisses! I just got spayed and I will be starting heartworm treatment soon. That means I will need to be in the crate most of the time and I'm not looking forward to that... I don't like the crate too much but I deal with it and don't complain.

My humans think I'm maybe about 3 years old, I probably weigh about 40lbs and I'm pretty skinny from all the worms that were in my tummy, I have a very small build.. My humans are working on fixing that now.

My foster home has little dogs and I don' t like them too much - I like bigger friends.. but I may tolerate them a little better once all these hormones are balanced out - I was in heat when I got spayed. They also have a kitty and I'm curious about him but don't really pay that much attention to him. I've only been in my foster home for a few days so more to come on me.

Through lots of care from my foster moms, I am now mange free and ready for my fur-ever home! I am a sweet girl, I love cuddling on the couch and I give the sweetest boxer kisses. I love being with my family so much that I stress when my foster family or my fur buddies are away from me. I will try to escape and look for them if I am alone and, so I really need a family who is around a lot. I can't help it! It just makes me scared to be alone. I adore car rides so you can even take me with you to different places! I get along with my size or larger dogs, but I am not very fond of most cats and small dogs because they look like toys so I will try to chase them. Being alone in a crate is not an option unless I am in with a friend. I mean, if you were in a cage, wouldn't you try to escape too? I would do best with someone who is home full-time and I have a fur buddy to keep me company. If you think you can love me as much as I love you, please be sure to put "Journey" on your application.

Felix the Frail has been in foster care since May 30th. Having lived at the end of a wire tether with no food or water, he was finally turned over to ABR to begin the first day of the rest of his life! He was in pretty rough shape upon first encounter, so his foster mom has been working hard to get him healthy!

Felix the Fatty, as he’s now lovingly called, is coming into his own precious self. He is a very loving, 80 pound lap dog! He is extremely eager to please his humans, pays little attention to the cat and our dogs, is completely housebroken, and has displayed absolutely no food or separation issues. Felix the Fearless came to ABR intact and his manners around other males needs improvement. He has assured me he’s working on that! He also arrived with all of the conditions that accompany that level of neglect. His improving health will be evaluated for neuter and heartworm treatment as soon feasible.

Felix the Fabulous is one fabulous fella who deserves to have his own pack of humans to love and be loved on. Whoever adopts him will have a sweet companion for many, many happy years ahead!

Everybody loves Bindi. And Bindi loves everybody. She plays well with the tiniest Yorkie and the Biggest Great Dane and everybody in between. She is good with cats even though they don't play well, and she loves all people - especially those little ones. She is incredibly smart and it doesn't take very long for her to figure out the rules. She loves to play and has plenty of Boxer energy; she loves to run, and jump, and box, and wrestle. She especially loves to play fetch with about anything you can throw - balls, toys, pinecones - if you throw it, she'll run to get it. When she isn't playing, she is a calm girl who just wants to lay close and watch tv with you, or look out the window, or just take a nice long nap.

She has a very gentle mouth and is very careful when taking treats from your hand, but her bowl is her bowl and she feels threatened when someone gets close to it while she is eating, probably from a difficult time in her life not too long ago when food was hard to come by. When Bindi came to us she was a very sick girl. She had giardia and kennel cough and was barely able to stand. We thought that was all it was, but as she got better we learned that not all her medical issues were temporary. We don't know what happened or when, but Bindi has partial paralysis in her back quarters. It isn't noticeable while she is running and playing, but she wobbles a little when she sits, and she doesn't have full control of her bladder and bowels. She also can't squat so she isn't able to 'eliminate' completely on her own. So having Bindi is a little like having a toddler - she has to be in a diaper. And once a day she needs help emptying her bladder so she doesn't get a urinary infection. She doesn't mind her diaper, and she doesn't try to take it off. She can even go awhile without it on but keeping it on is generally a better idea. If she gets excited or frightened, she will tense her stomach muscles, and there will be an accident if she has a bare bottom. It is surprising how quickly that diaper is just a normal part of life and she is just a normal, energetic, loving, sweet puppy.

About everybody who meets Bindi falls in love with her. It will just take a special someone willing to take the extra time and effort to care for her. And you might just love her a little bit more, because she needs you a little bit more than a 'normal' dog does.

Hi there! My name is Sooki. You may have noticed I am missing an eye, but that doesn't make me any less of a great dog. The story goes something like this: some nice people at a salon found me after I was hit by a car and took me to the vet to get help. Unfortunately, they were not able to save my right eye. Even though I am blind on one side, I have adjusted very well and don't seem to startle too easily. Even though they were able to track down my owners, sadly they didn't want to take me back. I've recently gone into a new foster home because my previous foster family was in the process of moving and it was very stressful for me. I love going on walks and do so at a very nice pace in my Easy Walk Harness. I have a very young Boxer sister at my current home and I love playing with her. I'm an alpha female so once I let her know who is boss, it's been nothing but play, play, play. In my previous home I loved playing with my foster skin brothers and sisters and would even sleep with them at night. I’m potty trained, crate trained and know commands like sit, stay, shake, and up. My new foster mom doesn't use "up" with me because she has a "no doggies in the bed rule". However, I used to be invited "up" to sleep at night with my previous foster's kids which was great! I would do just fine with a submissive dog similar to my size where I can play rough and I can be the boss. Recently I've been showing just how good of a guard dog I can be. I'll bark at any strangers in front of the house but I'm pretty good at stopping once my foster mom breaks my concentration. One funny tidbit about me is that when I get really excited I jump straight up and down like I'm on a trampoline. The higher I jump, the more I make my foster mom laugh. I am a silly Boxer after all :) If I sound like the dog for you, please mention Sooki on your application.

She is uncomfortable on stairs, but we are working on that and she is progressing quickly. She is smart and as sweet as she can be!

Apollo is incredibly gentle and playful with other animals of ANY kind. He has no prey drive and wants to be friends with everyone! He has a fur sister, Ginger and they are bonded. When she is not in sight, he will let you know he needs her back! He is on the needy side, and wants to have you in sight if you are home. He LOVES to play with balls!! He will "fetch" & "drop it" on command. He sleeps well and quietly in a crate at night. He is housebroken and prefers to have his own place on the sofa! He is very respectful of boundaries once established and won't take snacks from your plate!

My name is Betsy and I am a sweet, loveable girl who wants nothing more than to be close to my human friends and share my boxer kisses. I used to have a family, but they fell into hard times. They couldn’t afford to take care of me anymore and had to take me to the shelter.  That’s when my friends at Atlanta Boxer Rescue stepped in.  I have this funny looking growth on my face and these yucky things called heartworms. Those will be taken care of soon and I will be ready to move into my fur-ever home. I am adjusting nicely in my foster home and my foster family keeps saying they are amazed at how calm I am. That’s not to say that I don’t love greeting new friends with a boxer wiggle and a big slobbery kiss. However, once I settle in, it’s hard to get me to move from my comfy dog bed.   I am crate trained, potty trained and have never chewed on anything, but dog food. My favorite hobbies include sleeping, eating, going for car rides, and taking a short walk around the block.  I don’t mind cats and used to live with another dog companion! Even though I miss him, I am currently enjoying being the only dog while I adjust to my new life in Atlanta. I grew up a country girl and am not used to the sounds and smells of the city.  I am learning what to do when dogs bark at me and when cars drive by me on my walks.  If you are looking for a calm, cool, and collected girl full of boxer kisses mention BETSY on your application.

Faith had quite the rough life before coming to ABR. She was found roaming the streets, severely malnourished and full of parasites. ABR volunteers worked incredibly hard to get her weight up and she is now happy and healthy, but longs for a forever family. Faith is completely crate-trained, leash-trained and house-broken. Faith minds very well, and has excellent manners on the leash and inside the house. Faith is okay around adults and kids. She is not great with dogs, but has done well when slowly introduced to older/calm male dogs. Faith would love nothing more than to find a forever home to go on long walks and relax with her humans. If you would like to know more about Faith and meet her, please ask for her on your application!
