Dec

Dec

~1 Years

Male

55 lbs

Natural/Docked

Negative

Now

Dec is a super sweet boy with boundless energy. On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being the highest), he is between an 8-9. He plays all day long with Harley the Great Dane who lives in his foster home. Dec loves his toys. The ones with the squeakers are his favorite. He likes to fetch them (sometimes he even brings them back). He likes to pick a new one out of the toy basket frequently and deposits them around the house when he is done. He likes playing chase and tug with Harley over toys.

Dec is a fast learner. He knows sit, down, and comes most of the time. He sits before his food. While Dec is a fast learner, it seems he has not been taught how to greet people or animals while on a walk. He likes to lunge and bark. During walks, his foster has started using watch me and leave it and he is improving quite a bit. He will need continued reinforcement of this in his new home so that he becomes and stays a well-mannered dog. He has also not been taught how to greet people that enter his home. His foster is working on having him sit when the doorbell rings and having people offer him treats. Dec is learning that sit is the way to greet people and that people coming in are good (because he gets a treat).

He is crate trained. Just toss a treat or toy in his crate and in he goes. He settles very quickly. He is also house trained. It takes him a day or two to get into the routine at a new house. He goes to the door and even sometimes rings the bells. He has to go to a home where there is another energetic dog that needs to burn off energy. His forever home should have someone who is home most of the day so he has ample opportunity to exercise. A fenced yard where he can run around with another dog is also a requirement for this energizer bunny. Could you be the person who is committed to helping Dec become a sweet, well-mannered dog who is pleasant outside the house and with those entering the house? If so, please mention Dec on your application or send a note to the adoption coordinator.

Unknown

Lil Bit is the most sweetest snuggle pup you will ever meet. She loves nothing more than to lay with you and cuddle!! She follows her foster Mom and Skin sister (2 years) around the house like a shadow. She is quiet and calm inside but likes to run and chase wildlife in the back yard i.e. birds and squirrels. She is good with her fur sister after a slow introduction and is slowly starting to play with her fur sister after being with us about a month. Lil Bit would do best in a home where someone is home most of the day because she drinks a lot of water and takes frequent outside breaks. She is house trained and crate trained. She walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. She does have issues with her kidneys so we have put her on a special diet which helps her tremendously. She will be altered as soon as we feel she is strong enough to go through this process. She will then be ready for her forever home. If you are looking for a sweet, calm snuggle nugget then Lil Bit might be the one for you .

Blake is a typical energetic full throttle Boxer baby! He is deaf, but that does not affect his confidence. He follows the lead of other dogs and will need fur siblings to learn social and training cues. Paying constant attention to his human as well as strong recall training will be necessary for him as he cannot hear you calling him. He loves to play and chase things, but when he's ready for a nap, he will crawl up to your shoulder and snuggle right up! He is obviously working on potty training, but knows what to do outside and on his training pads inside. He's a smart little guy with quite the personality!

I'm Boss, and ABR took me in when my previous owner no longer had time for me. I am sure glad they did because I now have 3 foster fur sisters to play with and a backyard to run around in! I love wrestling with my foster fur sisters, I especially love the game keep away! I would love to have a permanent furry sister/brother to play with. I almost have that whole potty outside thing down, I even have learned to ask to go outside! I'm crate trained too! I love going on walks and exploring, my foster mom says I'm also a good runner! If you are looking for a big lovable energetic boy, then mention me, Boss, on your application

Sugar is a fun and loving boxer. She is great with kids! She is house trained and crate trained. She loves her toys and her bed. She settles into her walk after a few minutes and does well with her gentle leader. She sleeps on a dog bed but would prefer to be in the human bed! (What dog wouldn't?) She does get along with the male dog in her house. However, she needs a slow introduction to get acclimated to another male dog. She does not do well with cats. If you are looking for a boxer that loves life, please mention Sugar on your application.

December

Brody came as a stray and, by his physical appearance had been left to fend for himself for some time. Despite that, he has a wonderful, polite, trusting and calm personality. He is dog friendly, and very attentive to his humans around him wanting always be close and within sight. He is a hearing dog that can, at times, appear as very mild “selective” hearing. His myriad health issues are being remedied and you can just look into his eyes and know he is very grateful for his 2nd chance! As he begins to feel better, he plays more - but his little white nub seems to move all the time. He is scheduled for orthopedic surgery (cruciate repair) and heartworm treatment in November, requiring crate rest for a month thereafter. He's one happy boy who will make a fabulous member for the lucky family that adopts him.

November

My name is Rex (affectionately called Rexy). I apparently had a rough life before ABR, but I didn’t know that wasn’t the life meant for me. I spent my first 3 years of life chained up outside. I’m now settling into my foster home and it has been scary, but a good scary, you know? I didn’t know how to interact with my foster parents when I first got to their house. They would rub me so gently and speak softly to me, and I just didn’t get it. After a couple of weeks, I finally realized that this is a good life and I want to continue living this way. I now love when my foster mom rubs my neck and chest and will in fact fall asleep with my head in her hand so she continues to do so. I absolutely LOVE laying on a bed - it’s so comfortable and way better than the ground! My foster mom says I have a foot fetish because I just love to watch your feet and lick them with or without socks. I also love going on walks and learned to walk at a heel very quickly. My foster mom takes me for a couple of long walks every day to help get some of my anxiety out. Since I never had interaction with any humans, I still play with my foster parents like a puppy would, and I prefer to chew on puppy toys rather than hard bones right now. Maybe once I figure out the whole chewing thing I’ll like those deer antlers. I’ve already learned how to sit, and my foster mom says I’m going to have to learn stay next because I don’t like being separated from her and will try to shoot out the door when she walks out. I have to admit, I have some anxiety and hate to be left, but I’m doing really well in my crate when enticed with a little bit of water and when my crate is covered with a sheet. I’m also learning how to interact with my foster fur brother and sister. They are very patient with me and understand I’m still learning the best way to interact with them. I might show some dominant moves, but I don’t realize I’m being “dominant.” I take feedback really well when they tell me I shouldn’t do something because it might be offensive. I also have a feline brother, and I just want to play with him, too, but he’s not interested. I’m determined to make him like me because I like him, but he keeps telling me no. I would love a forever home possibly with a fur sibling that is patient to show me the ropes and a family that is very loving, patient enough to understand my anxiety after 3 very lonely years, possibly with someone that wouldn’t mind taking me for a walk or two a day, and humans that can show me they’re my pack leader. If you would love to give me a life I’ve never had, put Rex on your application.

Petey is a young, energetic white deaf boy who is extremely friendly and playful. He's working on learning basic manual signs over the next days and weeks. He has no aggressive or reactive tendencies or behaviors. He loves children, snuggling, giving kisses and his tennis ball with a passion, rides well in a car and walks fairly well on a leash, but can be distracted with all the new visual input. He's gorgeous and sweet and funny and smart... Working on learning his basic hand commands "Petey", "no", "good boy", "sit", "pee pee" and "come". Petey is a fabulous example of an adorable Boxer boy who's ready for his furever home.

Eleanor, aka Ellie, is an easy going, happy go lucky sweetheart. During her first visit to the vet, a reference was made about being a concrete dog. It is suspected that her past life consisted of living on hard surfaces outside. She definitely loves a soft bed, almost as much as your attention. Ellie will leave food or a comfy spot if she thinks you will give her love. She is working on manners, such as jumping when she gets excited. However, it took her a very short time to learn to ask for attention by sitting and is making improvements daily. She is excellent on a leash, does her business outside, and even though she will go in the kennel, she is left out with no issues. Learning sit and shake within the first week, she just wants to make you happy. Loves to give kisses and lots of them. No issues with the resident male and female dogs. Ellie gets along with everyone she has met. She is easy going and does not react to new situations, but interested to check things out. Ellie's goofy personality is presenting a fun experience to be a part of until she finds her forever home. If she sounds like a fit, then mention Ellie on your application.

Kyra is a super sweet girl that loves nothing more than to be in your lap. She has developed the sweetest personality and is now enjoying her fur brother as a playmate. She showed interest in the cat, but soon learned that was a big NO NO and she now pays her kitty fur sister no attention at all. Kyra isn't much into dog toys but she is learning they could be fun. She does however love to run and play in the grass with her fur brother. At first riding in the car she was nervous, but now since she has a few joy rides under her belt, the car isn't such a bad place to be and she relaxes and enjoys it. Kyra is a very calm relaxed dog in the house, low energy and not a barker.

Hi, my name is Gypsy! I am about 9 months old and I came into ABR with my little brother, Sox. We both arrived with a case of demodectic mange (the non-contagious type of mange) but we are both currently undergoing treatment and doing much better! As soon as my skin has cleared up I will be spayed and ready for adoption. I currently live in a foster home with 4 other dogs and 3 cats. I love playing with my foster siblings and I have a lot of energy! I also do well with the cats, I like to try playing with them but for some reason they do not want to play with me. I am also your typical “velcro boxer” and love to be around my humans all the time! I am potty/crate trained and I would do great in a home with another dog and plenty of room to exercise! Won’t you consider letting me join your family?

Lena

Now

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!

Hi Everyone! My name is Riley. I am a sweet, laid back, loving, little girl. My story is a sad one. My family didn't have time for me anymore so they no longer wanted me. Thankfully, the good folks at ABR took me in. I was so sad and scared. I didn't understand what was happening. My foster mom and dad gave me lots of love and told me that I would never be unwanted again. I have lived with kitty cats most of my life and currently live with one now. I have lived with small children however I can get a little clumsy when I get excited. You see I am an expert at doing the boxer wiggle. I currently have a boxer brother and sister but sometimes get a little sassy with the female. I'm still not sure if it's her or me. I do like slower introductions with other pups so I probably would not enjoy going to a puppy park. I love, love, love to be with my humans. We can play, watch a movie or just take a nap. I am totally house trained and crate trained. I also know commands like shake (with both paws), sit, lay down, stay and come. I am a smart little girl and love to make my humans very proud. I do not pull on a leash however I do need to get a little more comfortable when walking by other dogs. I am just protective of my family because I love them so much. I will need to be walked on a leash or have a fence higher than 4 feet. All I want to do is cuddle and wiggle and please. I will love you with all of my heart if you just give me a chance. I am healthy, spayed and chipped and ready to go to my furever home. Can that be you?

Hi, my name is Dutch. I am a sweet, handsome boy with lots of love to give! My bark may be loud, but once you get to know me I will be your best friend. I get along with other friendly dogs, but not cats or other small animals. I am crate trained and house trained, and I do well in the crate when my foster mom is at work, but I would do best with an owner who is home most of the time. 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! I like playing with my toys and I LOVE walks! I get so excited when my foster mom gets my leash out! Even though I'm a big strong boy I do not pull on walks. When my foster mom comes home I get so excited to see her that I hop around like a bunny! 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 with a family that will love me just as much as I love them!

Bindi

Bindi

Now

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 Sookie! You may have noticed I am missing an eye, but that doesn't make me any less of a great dog. I was found after I was hit by a car but 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 easily. I love going on walks and do so at a very nice pace in my harness. I’m potty trained, crate trained and know commands like sit, stay, shake, and up. 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 such a silly Boxer! I have a young Boxer sister at my foster home and I love playing with her. In my previous home I loved playing with my foster skin brothers and sisters and would even sleep with them at night and every time a child comes over to me I like to smother them with kisses. Since I am an alpha female I would be just fine by myself or with a submissive dog similar to my size where I can play rough and I can be the boss. My foster mom says I make a great guard dog and need slow introductions to new people and dogs. The folks here at Atlanta Boxer Rescue have noticed that I don’t seem to like strangers (especially men) approaching me while wearing sunglasses and/or a hat. It’s an odd quirk, but only I know the reason why. So if I sound like the dog for you, and I really hope I do, please mention Sookie on your application

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. My foster family keeps saying they are amazed at how calm I am. I love greeting new friends with a boxer wiggle and a big slobbery kiss. After I greet people, I settle in on my comfy dog bed and like to relax there. I am crate trained, potty trained and have never chewed on anything other than dog food. My favorite hobbies include sleeping, eating, going for car rides, and taking a short walk around the block. While I have lived with another dog, right now I am unsure of strange dogs and would best as your one and only.

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!
