Meet Robinson affectionately called Robbie by all his friends. First, let me just tell you that will never meet a sweeter pup than Robbie. This sweet boy has never lost his spirit, even with all that he's gone through. He came to ABR after being struck by a car and was found on the side of the road. When they contacted us to see if we could help we knew he would need a lot of medical attention and a long recovery ahead of him; not only had he been hit by a car but he was also heartworm positive and blind. Robbie went immediately to one of our vets to undergo orthopedic surgery to help save his leg. They wanted to do everything they could to avoid amputation of his leg so he would not have an additional challenge with already being blind. Robbie remained strong and full of life even for a dog in the shape and pain he was in. He has been doing great since the surgery and recently started his heartworm treatment. Robbie still has one more hurdle to clear once he's off crate rest and he will see an eye specialist to get a better understanding of his vision impairment. When you meet this sweet soul you would never know all that he has been through. He has a wonderful foster mom and a very caring and supportive foster fur sister who helps him get around and show him the ropes. He has adjusted well in his foster home and has made so many new friends, he especially loves the little ones. He's a very kind and gentle boy who is house and crate trained. Robbie would do best in a home with someone who is home often, maybe a retiree, stay / work from home family. Someone who would take him on walks, which he loves and a fenced in backyard where he could roam and explore safely. His foster mom thinks he would do well in a quite home with limited stairs, kids would be fine as long as they understand not to run up to Robbie and can help him feel safe. He would do well in a home with another well mannered / mellow fur-sibling who can help him navigate in his new environment, he is small dog friendly and possible ok with cats, although he hasn't met one yet. His ideal family would be patient and pro-active in learning to work with a dog with his specific needs, although he has proven to adjust well. Robbie is on his way to a clean bill of health and is anxiously awaiting to meet his new family. If you are interested in meeting this handsome guy, just mention him on your application or if you already approved, just email our adoption coordinator.

Meet Bobo, this fella has had a not so charmed life and was surrendered to ABR in hopes that we could turn things around for him. We rescued this sweet boy on Mother's Day, which is fitting, considering the amount of nurturing he desperately needed. He is such a sweet boy and despite his past circumstances, shows nothing but love for people and wants to be right next to them. Bobo has done great in his foster home and settling in well. He has been through a few changes, but is still your all around sweet and full of wiggles boxer. Bobo is gentle with the kids and has done well with the little ones and other family members in his foster home. He loves to play with his toys but car rides are his favorite...it puts him righy to sleep like a newborn baby. He seems to listen well and walks good on a leash. He has done great with his two foster fur-brother, another Boxer and a Beagle, but does have a prey drive for cats, rabbits, squirrels...which probably means no small dogs. He would probably do best in a home with another laid back furry sibling or fine as the only "child". Bobo is more on the laid back side himself, very well mannered and does not jump. Bobo is gaining some much needed weight but still has a few more pounds to gain to get to a healthy size, his foster mom is making sure he gets lots of yummies! Since Bobo has had a taste of the good life, he'd prefer to be indoors rather than outdoors, which probably has something to do with his past life being left outside. He is house and crate trained and loves to sleep on the bed and cuddle. This handsome boy would do good in any home that would shower him with love. He is soaking up all the attention and TLC his foster family has given him and can't wait to find a family of his very own. Unfortunately, because of his previous care situation and being left outside without prevention, Bobo does have heartworms. He will be treated soon and then available for adoption. Bobo is ready to get the show on the road and on his way to recovery so he can find a place to call home. If you think Bobo sounds like your kind of pup, just mention him on your application or if you are already approved, let our adoption coordinator know you would like to meet him.

Hi everyone, Hooch here! My journey to ABR started a few months ago when a shelter reached out for some help. They were trying to help me because I had a gunshot wound and was partially paralyzed and in pain, I couldn't even stand up. I thought for sure that was the end for me, but some awesome angels at ABR took a long car ride to come save me. They brought me to this really nice doctor, and here I am, fully recovered and good as new! When I first got to my foster home I was super scared of everything. I didn't get exposed to much in my life before, so everything was new to me. I was scared of new people, scared to go for a walk, scared of other animals, scared of stairs, I was even scared to check out new parts of my foster home. I did a lot of barking and growling at new things, my mom said that wasn't very polite. She told me I was safe and no one would hurt me ever again, so I've loosened up and learned to enjoy this adventure called life! I LOVE to go for walks now, and I'm very polite when I meet new people. I've gotten to meet new dogs on my walks, just a quick sniff and tail wag, and I do well. I think I might want to play with them, but I'm not sure, and I don't know how. So I will need to be the only dog in my home, at least until I learn how to be social with other dogs. I also have a prey drive for small animals, oh my gosh I LOVE to chase critters! Only in my yard though, I behave when I see other animals on my leash walks. I met a turtle in my yard the other day and I think I scared the poor guy. I kept barking at him and batting him around with my paws until my mom called me and said it's not nice to play hockey with a turtle, but seriously, he had his house on his back and that's just weird, right? I still am kind of scared of these small humans y'all call kids, I have two in my foster home and I tolerate them just fine, but I don't really care for all the noise and toys. I do let them pet me and give me treats, and I've been polite meeting kids on my walks, but I'm looking for a forever home with no kids, I think I'll be much happier. Mom says I'm super smart and a total cuddle bug, and I'm also quite handsome if I do say so myself. I love to play and walk, but I also love to chill out. Basically I want to do what you want to do! I've never had an accident in my foster home and I love my crate! If you think you can give me the home I need, I promise to love you for life! If you're not approved yet, head to the website and fill out an app. If you're already approved let the adoption coordinator know you wanna meet me, Hooch!

So I hear you're looking for a new family member?!?! Well look no further! I am a sweet, low energy kind of girl that doesn't require much exercise, in fact, I may actually be allergic to it, you know the sweat and all. So no need for a large fenced in yard, but if you have one that's great. I do get spurts of energy and like to play with my people, my foster mommy thinks I would do better with elementary school aged kids as I may accidentally hurt the little ones when trying to play. I would do well as an only pet or with a well behaved fur-sibling, no bossy ones please...I have been known to be a little selective with my fur-friends. I'm an easy girl that does well in the crate, although I prefer your bed or sofa and I enjoy my daily short walks, which also helps continue to keep my great muscle tone and a great exercise for my knee. I recently had TPLO surgery (knee) and have my last follow up appointment in a week and then I will be ready for adoption! I can't wait to see who gets to be my new family! Will it be you? If you are interested in meeting me and already approved, send an email to our adoption coordinator or just fill out an application and mention Mimi!

Meet Foxy. A senior female boxer who has a lot of life left to live! This cuddle bug was an owner surrender. She appears to have been overbred and her owner could no longer handle taking care of her. She has a very sweet and gentle playfulness about her. She actually did a happy dance when she came home from the shelter! She loves to give kisses and will gently hop up on your lap to give you hugs. She shows no food aggression or issues with handling. She does bark at other dogs, however, she did have a small yorkie sibling. This sweet girl will melt your heart.

Beau is a low energy happy boy that wants to be close for love and attention. You can find a few spots on his neck and back that make him kick start a motorcycle. He is a typical curious boxer that does not seem to have fearful triggers. This boy does not mind the kennel and will go in on command. He is left out without issues, house broken, walks great on a leash, and knows sit. He learns quickly, looks for commands from people, and takes direction well. He is nonreactive with the small and large dogs he has met so far. If Beau sounds like a great fit, then mention him on your application or contact your adoption coordinator.

Meet Zeus, a gentle giant with a little fun side! Don't let his name fool you, although he is poised and strong, Zeus is as sweet as they come. He is very chilled and calm in the house and will crawl in your lap for a little snooze and attention. He loves being next too his people and lounging on the couch with you, if you let him. Zeus is a young boy who also loves to play and have fun. He can entertain himself with lots of toys and he is also good with other dogs, he has been to doggy daycare, but can sometimes get a little too rough with his play. Zeus is a smart boy who listens well. He knows several commands, walks well on a leash and is house/crate trained, he also does well when left out of the crate. He does great with all people and environments, although may be best suited in a home with older kids because of his size and may accidentally knock over small kids. Zeus can jump 5ft fences so he will either need a home with a high fence (6ft +), no fence or someone committed to watching him in the backyard and not left unattended. If you are looking for a great companion who just wants to be your best friend, then mention Zeus on your application.

Introducing Snoop and Snow Boy - the gentle giants who will steal your heart! These handsome boys are brothers with an unbreakable bond. They have been together since they were puppies and will need to be adopted together. Snoop and Snow Boy came to ABR as owner surrenders due to their family falling on hard times. The family wanted what was best for their boys and reached out to ABR. Snoop and Snow Boy have always been outdoor dogs, but they are adjusting well to their new cozy indoor way of life. They are calm in the house and just want to be near their people and each other. They love getting pets, giving sloppy kisses, playing with the same toy and taking naps together. These sweet boys are a little timid when meeting new people, but they have quickly warmed up to everyone they've met - kids and adults. Snoop is the more confident and easy going of the two, while Snow Boy is more reserved and apprehensive. These boys are great companions and good listeners. They are house trained, crate trained, and enjoy going for rides in the car. They are not too fond of cats and would probably do best as the only dogs in the house. If these big boys sound like the perfect fit for your family, mention Snoop and Snow Boy on your application.

Hi my name is Livingston! I was picked up just roaming around town and in pretty good condition considering. I'm pretty laid back and like to lounge around, but I really enjoy being allowed to roam around outside. I understand that is dangerous so I'm willing to do my roaming either on a leash or in a fenced in backyard-as long as the fence is at least 6ft tall because I do enjoy challenging myself to jump over lower fences. I don't mind being around other dogs or cats and love to give my foster sister smooches all day. I've been working really hard on my manners so I am now house and crate trained. My foster mom says that I am one of the sweetest dogs she has ever met, I'm very gentle, quiet, and have the biggest brown eyes she's ever seen! I would be okay in a house with other pets and any size humans (young and old alike)-where you are is where I want to be, just call me your shadow. I would do best in a home where someone is home most of the day since I do love my humans so much! I think I would make a great companion because I love to go on walks and adventures, but I will also just hang around the house with you too. I would love to meet you and your family if you think we would be a good fit together!!

Major has been with us since the middle of March and he's still looking for his forever home. He's fun, energetic and full of love. Someone once said, "He gets along with everyone regardless if they like him or not" - this goes for dogs and cats too.
While he lives with us we're still working on his manners. He can be pretty stubborn and he beats to his own drum. He really needs daily walks, heavy duty chew toys and a family to continue correcting his behavior. This will keep his mind from wandering and getting into mischief. Even though he's wonderful with young kids, he's not with their toys. Having older kids, without tiny toys and stuffed animals, may be best for him. He is crate trained but would be better in a home where he isn't crated often or for too long. He does have a mild heart condition, which he was born with, and stays on medication twice a day. He needs regular echocardiograms, with a specialist, to make sure his heart is functioning well. Major is the sweetest boy, is so easy to fall in love with and ready for a family to call his own.

Hi, I'm Teeny! I am all that is fun about a boxer in a smaller package. I love to play but I am really good at taking a nap and I don't mind being alone…for a little while! I would prefer to be with someone who is home more often than not. I do not like to be crated but I do well being left out for a few hours at a time. I am still learning what toys and bones are because I have never seen them before, but I am learning! I love to be outside but I would do best in a yard with a fence because I like to "explore on my own" if given the opportunity. I walk really well on a leash and do not try and chase small animals. I have never met a cat so I am not sure if I like them or not but I am great with my foster fur siblings! I also adore my 2 year old foster skin sibling and it's not just because sometimes she shares her dinner. My foster mom says that I am really easy going and would be a great addition to any family! If I sound like the perfect fit for your family, please mention "Teeny" on your application.

Meet Rocket. Rocket is what most refer to as a pocket Boxer…He’s a little guy. He makes up for his size in personality though.

He is very mild mannered and has never met a person he didn’t like. He loves snuggling with his people, snoozing in the sun, and getting rubs from whomever is handing them out.

He is house trained and has not had a single accident in the house. He is not food or toy aggressive. He still needs to put on a little weight, but he will be on the smaller side for a boxer even after he gains a little. He’s still an energetic guy and runs around in the back yard like a crazy dog when he gets excited.

He has not done very well with our three dogs and may need to be an only dog. The last couple of interactions we had were better than previous ones, so with a slow introduction, it may be possible to have him in a house with other dogs. We do not know how he is with cats.

Rocket is a very sweet boy. He’s not excitable and normally has a very calm demeanor. He does get excited when you get home and his little butt wiggles all over the place. He’ll make someone who is looking for a dog that’s beyond the puppy phase a very good companion.

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 10 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?
