Hello World. Saybin here. I came to ABR in mid April. My former family has some illness of their own and decided I would be better off in a home that is able to care for me.

I escaped from my home and went off on an adventure for a couple of days; what was I thinking? While I was gone I hurt my right rear leg pretty bad. It seems I have a torn cruciate. Not so bad? It’s the ONLY rear leg I have. About 3 years ago something happened and I had to have my right rear leg amputated. I was fine with this until now. I’ve been gimping around on my hurt leg so my foster mom took me to the orthopedic surgeon. After poking and prodding and an x-ray, he determined I need a TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) surgery. This isn’t a cheap surgery, costing around $3,000 +/-. My goodness that’s a lot of money but ABR has stepped up to help me have the surgery. Now, I’m asking for you to help ABR help me. If everyone donates just a little bit it will help so much. Skip the gourmet coffee for a day, eat in instead of going out, there are lots of painless ways to help. And it’s so easy...Paypal is our friend. You can donate online here.

In the meantime, I’ll be hanging out at my foster home where the pack welcomed me with open paws. There is only 1 step for me to get outside and Mom helps me get back in. I can get in on my own but it is so much easier when she helps me.

OK then. Thank you for helping me help Atlanta Boxer Rescue help me.

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 Lucy! I'm a small brindle boxer (38lbs) but I have a big, big heart. I love to cuddle, drink water, burrow in blankets, be chased around outside, take walks, and snore! I'm house broken, crate trained, and know basic commands. When I need to go outside I'll sometimes whine or try to stand on you. I make instant friends with everyone I see and meet, including children. I'm not so keen on toys and I need a slow introduction to other dogs. I prefer dogs smaller than me and I'm not sure how I feel about cats. I'm resiliant but I'm looking forward to having a fur-ever home! If I sound like the gal for you put my name in your application.

Cookie embodies many of the reasons senior dogs are great to adopt. One, they make great companions. Cookie is a big love bug and wants to be with you as often as possible. Cookie is also great with her 2 ½ year old foster skin-sibling and loves to peek in on her when her foster mommy is waking her up for school each morning. In addition to being a great human companion, Cookie also gets along with the female boxer that is in her foster home. (Smaller dogs and cats are objects of prey to her. So a home without those would be perfect.) Two, seniors do not require miles of exercise. A short walk around the neighborhood each day is perfect for her. Three, senior dogs ARE great at learning new tricks. Cookie has almost mastered house-training. (As a breeding dog, she never had a chance to learn that skill). While Cookie’s early life was rough, she is now ready to spend her golden years relaxing in her forever home. Cookie’s ideal home would be one in which she received the unconditional love she gives. If you want a loyal, loving, and relaxed companion and are looking forwarding to teaching Cookie some new tricks, please put her on your application today!

Hello I’m Alice! My foster mom says I’m such a sweetheart. I walk well on a leash and love to go for walks. I know I’m supposed to only potty outside. I also love to cuddle with you! I love my fur sister and I get along with the felines as well but sometimes I want to play with them and they don’t play back. I will go in a crate but I don’t like it very much. My foster mom always leaves me out and I’m always a good girl. I don’t like sharing my food with other dogs because I wasn’t fed very well before so I like to eat seperate. I love to play with squeaky toys they’re my favorite. I promise to be your best friend and give you unconditional love forever. If you think I’m your girl please mention my name in the application.

Hi, I’m Gidget! As my name implies, I’m a small but spunky girl. My foster mom says that I’m a laid back love – a real charmer. I walk well on the leash, know I’m supposed to potty outside and am patient, tender and loving with kids. I also love other a dogs. My foster fur sister is a much bigger and bossier boxer, and I just go with the flow. I like to go on walks and scamper after things in the back yard, but I’m also happy to lie down in whatever room my people are in and chill. I will bat my eyes at you to let you know I want to snuggle with you on the couch, but I’m also alright to just lay at your feet. I do okay in the crate, but it’s not my favorite, and I’m fine to be left out. My foster mom crates me at night because I’m a little overly exuberant with the kitty. I would be okay in a house with a cat and will leave them alone if you call my name or tell me un-uh. But you’ll need to help me know the boundaries. I’m a pocket boxer and very gentle. I would be a great solo dog or an addition to a full household. I promise you lots of wet kisses, Boxer wiggles and unconditional love. If you think I might be the girl for you, mention Gidget 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?

Max is just a sweet old man! He had spent most of his life locked in a kennel unable to live the life every dog so deserves! Due to his prior outdoor living situation he is at times unsure of himself and looks to his foster for guidance in this new wonderful life he is living, he had to learn what life on the inside is like! But he is very eager to learn and please and has adapted wonderfully. Despite being older he doesn’t look it. He is a very handsome guy with super soft fur that makes it even more enjoyable to pet him. He is incredibly loving and really just enjoys relaxing and being loved on. If you are looking for a cuddle buddy this is your guy! He is well-mannered, house trained, and walks very well on a leash. He does still mark occasionally, however he was just recently fixed and that should pass with a little time and training. He is great with kids and other people but is very protective of his home and should be supervised around guests until he feels comfortable. He does not like to share with other dogs, so due to this he should be in an only dog home. Due to his prey drive he should not be in a home with cats. Max is an incredibly sweet and loving dog who aims to please and show his affection. When you meet him you will undoubtedly fall in love with him immediately! Don’t miss out on an opportunity to adopt your new best buddy!

What a journey this sweet boxer girl has had! She came to ABR with severe mange and through lots of care from her fosters, she is ready to journey no more. She loves cuddling on the couch and gives sweet boxer kisses. However.. she does stress when her foster mom or her fur-skin buddies are out of sight. She is an escape artist and will do almost anything when left alone. She gets along with most fur skins but is not real fond of cats or small dogs. Being alone in a crate is NOT an option unless shared with a fur-skin. Journey would do best with someone who is home full-time and/or has a fur-skin to keep her company. If you think she might be a fit, please be sure to put "Journey" on your application.

Hi! I’m Bosco and who couldn’t love this face! I have a lot of energy and like to get into trouble but I don’t mean to. I have a lot of puppy behavior and like to jump, box and mouth. I also like eating things I shouldn’t and just recently had surgery to remove a foreign object (sock) from my tummy. I don’t have the best manners and need someone that is patient and loving to help me learn proper behavior. I will need a lot of work, but promise it will pay off in the end. My foster family has been working really hard to help me learn some basic commands and manners. I catch on real quick and love getting treats for doing such a great job. I love going for walks/runs but I’m not so great all the time on the leash. I tend to bite the leash and play tug of war when I get excited. I will need a family that is dedicated to helping me mature and become the well mannered pup I know I can be. I need an active family that will give me daily exercise as this will help curb my mischievous behavior. Professional training is also highly recommended. My foster mom thinks someone who has had boxers before would be a great fit for me so they will understand my boyish and boxer nature. I get along with all dogs and would love to have another fur brother or sister or can be fine with being the only child.

I will need a home with a fenced in back yard so I can burn off some of this energy. I am house trained and crate trained although I don’t like being in the crate for long hours. A family that has someone home often or works from home would be wonderful! I love children but probably would not be best suited for a family with young kids because I can become over excited and rough at times when playing.

I’m really just a big goofy boy who likes to play and gets into mischief. I make a great snuggle partner when I settle in and I promise I’ll make a great family addition and reward you with lots of love and loyalty. If I sound like your pup, please mention me on your application.

Lena found her way into the care of Atlanta Boxer Rescue by a volunteer who found her extreme neglected state and pleading eyes too much to turn away. She was too weak to walk in the vet's office, but has blossomed into a companion like no other. Lena was diagnosed with diabetes. This can sound complicated, but being on a schedule is the hardest part. She is fed two times a day and 30 minutes after her meals she seems to know her shot is due. It does not appear to even bother her. She gets the same type of insulin people receive. She sits or comes to the refrigerator with you to get her shot, then gets excited about baby carrots for a treat. This girl is not a picky eater, loving vegetables for treats. She needs a constant schedule with feeding, treats, and exercise. She has flexibility to adjust to your schedule, but needs a routine to prevent sudden changes in her sugar level. She would be best suited being the only dog to receive your attention. Happiest by your side, she does not require a big yard to play. When finished doing her business outside she is found sitting on a chair looking for someone to let her inside. Lena seems to understand direction given and is eager to please. Already crate trained, house broken, and is good on a leash. She knows "sit" and picked up on "wait" quickly. A fun girl to train because she picks up so quickly, and easy to reward with treats or toys. We can't speak enough on her good manners. This happy girl just wants to be close and if you talk to her, she can't help but reach up to give kisses. It is hard not to fall in love with the excitement she shows when giving and receiving affection. If this is a companion that will fit right in with you, mention Lena on your application.

Hi, I am Gretchen! My son Milo and I were darting in and out of traffic when some very nice people stopped to give us food and take us to safety. Thankfully we made our way to Atlanta Boxer Rescue and things have been much better ever since! I love playing with my toys and giving kisses. I don’t really like other cats and dogs (except for Milo) so we will probably need to be the only animals. I am currently recovering from surgery but will be better soon and would love to make my way into your heart!

Hi, I am Milo! I am a playful guy who loves boxing, going on walks and just being with my humans. But most of all I love my mama! We are both house and crate trained and love humans of all ages. I am a little skittish at first, but am becoming more trusting each day. If we are the dogs for you, I promise that I will never leave your side! If you think we might be the dogs for you, mention us in your application!

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.

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!
