Hooch has had a rough month getting through his gunshot injury (see Infirmary page), but he is back on his feet now and looking for his forever home! He is a timid boy and approaches everything with caution, but once he warms up to you, he is all love! He is housebroken, listens well and will look to his owner to see what to do. He is not a fan of dogs so far, but he may come around with time. He is looking for a strong owner that can teach him the rules of the house and get him out to meet people and see new things to teach him about the world around him. He would prefer to be the only thing on four legs in the house, but otherwise, Hooch is just a big lug in need of some good lovin'! If he sounds like the guy for you, contact your adoption coordinator or apply online to learn more about him!

Meet Winston! Winston is a happy-go-lucky, fun-loving boy who loves to bounce around and play. He would love a fur-sibling to keep him company and a fenced in yard where he can play fetch. Winston is good on a leash and frequently gets complimented on his adorable face and happy demeanor when he is out for a walk. This sweet pup has not shown any food or toy aggression. He loves all people but would probably do best in a house that does not have small children. Sometimes he jumps when he gets excited and he doesn't quite realize how big he is. Winston is working on potty training and he is crate trained. He is not a big fan of his crate, but he can easily be lured in with a treat. This boy is well behaved, eager to please and guaranteed to provide endless entertainment and love. If Winston sounds like the perfect match for your family fill out an adoption application and mention his name. If you are already approved, please contact our adoption coordinator and ask to meet Winston.

Let me introduce Sir! He is a beautiful brindle boy who wants nothing more than your attention. Sir is new to the rescue and is settling in well in his foster home. He is very loving and loves all people. Sir came into the rescue with his sister, Princess, after their owner was sent on a long deployment. Both dogs seem to do well with other dogs, however Sir can be a little on the jealous side when other pets, including Princess, are getting attention. His foster mom has reassured him that there is plenty of love for everyone and he quickly realizes that is not the way of a true gentleman. Sir is a fun, playful boy who likes to share his toys. Since he has been with his foster family, he has shown no signs of food aggression. Sir loves to go for walks and does well on a leash, however a harness would probably be best for this fella. Sir is a very smart boy and already knows sit, stay and down. We are working on shake and the proper way to say "hello", which is not jumping. With consistency and positive reinforcement, he should master this in no time at all. Sir is house and crate trained, although he does not love the crate, he goes in with no problem. He loves to sleep in his foster moms bedroom on his doggy bed at night. Sir likes to snuggle and would do well in a home with another playful fur-sibling and a family that can make sure he gets the exercise he needs so he can keep his great physique. His foster mom thinks he would do great with kids, however because of his energy and size, probably not best suited for small children since he may accidentally knock them over when playing. Sir is looking for a great family with lots of love to give. If you think he may be your Mr. Right, just mention Sir on your application. If you are already approved, then send an email to our adoption coordinator and let her know you would like to meet Sir.

Meet Able! He's a very handsome, sweet and easy going 4 year old boy who loves to be spoiled with attention! He loves to play chase in the backyard with his 2 foster fur brothers. They all get along great inside and even share their toys and play tug of war with their ropes! Unfortunately for Able he has heartworms and since he had his treatment, he has to stay extremely calm both inside and outside. He has been doing very well since his treatment and loves to cuddle and sleep on the couch with his foster parents! He does well on a leash which makes walking him outside to go to the bathroom very easy. When his foster parents have to leave or when it's time to go to sleep for the night, he does great inside his crate, especially with an encouraging treat to get him inside! He has an awesome appetite and getting him to take his medicine is very easy when it's tucked inside a treat. He needs some work with basic commands and has had a few accidents inside the house, both of which are a work in progress. He should train pretty easy because he loves treats and seems eager to please. When his heartworm treatment is done, it will be much easier to train him because we can reward his good behavior with both treats and lots and lots of encouraging love! This playful boy can't wait to get back to his normal self where he can run around in the backyard and play other with his fur brothers and foster parents! Able has not been left for long periods during the day, so we are unsure how he will do if left longer than 5 hours. If Able sounds like a good fit for your family, please mention him in your application or if you are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator know you would like to me Able!

Birdie

Birdie is a three year old boxer female that came to ABR from a South Georgia shelter. As her foster, I am a little like my mother-in law describing her grandson: I have yet to find fault with this great dog! She is well mannered and friendly. Birdie enjoys human companionship and being close to you. She is happy sitting near you, and loves to stand nearby and get tummy rubs from the tops of your feet. She is crate-trained and housebroken, knows the command "Sit," walks well on a leash, and does not appear to chew furniture or other human artifacts some dogs find interesting. She has not displayed food or any other pattern of aggressiveness.

Birdie gets along with people and other dogs. She loves companionship and play, but does well when left alone. She is playful and would be great with adults and small children. Her gentle disposition gives way to unabashed Boxer joy when playing with other dogs.

When she first came to us, we recognized that Birdie was a diamond in the rough. Birdie has had a litter of puppies, so her previously girlish figure is just a memory. She had some skin issues that might require some ongoing baths. She tolerates those well, accepting the indignity of the process as the price she pays for all the attention. Birdie is a great dog who will fill a person or family's home with joy and love.

Amos has such a big heart. He's easy going, relaxed and loves to cuddle. So far, he's great with his human foster siblings (8, 6 and 3) and his senior female canine friend. He loves to play! Although, he's very interested in cats he may not do well with them. He knows how to sit but really needs work on his basic commands and crate training, which his foster family is working on. He doesn't like to be alone, especially in his crate, but he's getting much better at this as he does have heartworms and needs strict rest. He does great on a leash and is potty trained. As soon as he's clear of heartworms he'll be ready for a family of his own.

George is a calm old guy. He mostly wants a warm soft spot to lounge and somone to love him. George would do best with other older, calm animals. He isn't great with cats, when he sees one he gets a spark of his boxer energy back and gives them a chase. George needs someone that can be home with him most of the time – he has an old man's bladder and can't hold it for too long. He may do well with a dog door so he can go in and out as he pleases. George seems to do great with all people – although he loves to bark at newcomers. George deserves a forever home to live out his golden years.

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!

Our handsome boy Bender has been in a special training program for the last few weeks. Bender has some issues with reactivity around other dogs, especially when on leash. ABR has had a trainer working with him one-on-one to set him up for success in a future forever home. Bender's time in the overnight training program is coming to an end, and we need a special foster home to help him build on his solid foundation!

We are looking for a foster and/or adopter who has dog experience, but currently does not have other dogs in the home. While Bender may be able to coexist with other dogs eventually, he isn't ready for that quite yet. Bender is house trained and crate trained, and he would do best in a home where he isn't left for more than 2-3 hours at a time. Bender LOVES his people, and only wants to please them!

Bender also does well with children of all ages, though we would prefer he be placed in a home with older children while he continues his training. He is SUCH a smart cookie, and is thrilled when asked to show off his tricks. Bender loves playing fetch, keep away and tug of war! He does not show any food/toy aggression and loves his toys. He also loves learning with treats, and he takes them very gently.

Everyone who meets Bender falls instantly in love with his big personality! He is a favorite around here, and we are hoping the right person sees this to help us continue his progress!

Hi! My name is Roxie. I am what is called a “Pocket Boxer” because of my size. When I was rescued from the shelter I was only 36 lbs. and had pneumonia and kennel cough. Now thanks to my temporary foster I have gained a few pounds in just a short time and my cough is almost gone. I am a very loving and sensitive girl who would love a family especially with kids. Because of my cough I have not been able to be around other furry friends, but I’m sure I could get along with others. I am a little shy and reserved. I guess this is because I did not have a lot of love in my past. My foster tells me I’m doing pretty good on my crate training and house training. I only had a few mistakes and I bark a little when initially left alone but calm done in a few minutes. I still have to get my heart worm test, rabies shot and be spayed, so I will not be available until February but I would love to meet you if you are approved. Please tell the adoption coordinator that you are interested in Roxie.

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 everyone! My name is Lola! I just arrived in my foster home this week, and I'm really settling in! My foster mom says I am super sweet, and very laid back. I am crate trained and house broken, and get along with other dogs. I do have these things called heartworms, so I will need treatment before I'm ready to find my forever home. Keep an eye out for more updates on me as I settle in!

Rex is a 6 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.

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?
