Hi everyone! I'm Bacchus! I found my way to ABR because my owner has a new job traveling a lot and I was stuck in boarding for weeks at a time. That was no fun, and he wanted a better life for me so here I am! I am a very sweet boy who has a good amount of energy. I love to play and snuggle. I love dogs big and small, and I even like cats! I'm great with skin siblings too. I'm also one smart cookie, I know several hand and verbal commands and I listen well. I'm a well-mannered boy who just wants to love and be loved! Can I love you? If you want to meet me just mention me, Bacchus, to the adoption coordinator and let's get snuggling!

Hi, I'm Penny! My foster parents call me that because I have the most beautiful gold eyes and shiny coat. I love attention and snuggling because I haven't gotten much of that in my life. I wasn't potty trained when I came to ABR but I am told I am doing great and I am almost fully trained! I am working on basic commands and should know those soon as well! I love kids and am good with cats and other dogs with good temperaments. I am still getting used to having my freedom in the fenced backyard and it makes me a little nervous to be left out there alone so, walks are preferred! I bark a little bit in my crate but I calm down quickly and I have never had an accident in there! I am about to start heart worm treatment and will have to rest for a few weeks but after that I will be ready to find my forever home! If I sound like the perfect fit for your family, please let the adoption coordinator know that you would love to meet me!

Meet Kobie! He is a beautiful reverse brindle that is new to the rescue and is still settling in with his foster family and is doing great. Kobie initially is a little timid and shows a slight fear to men. He is not reactive or aggressive, he is just a scared little boy. He will need a family that will help him build trust and confidence with lots of love and positive reinforcement. In the past few days he has opened up so much more and is feeling more at home, his favorite spot is the couch! His foster dad makes sure to spend some extra quality time with him to help him feel more at ease. He loves his foster fur brother and sister and loves playing and running around in the backyard with them. Kobie would love to be in a home with another playful pup and a fenced in yard. He does well with his skin foster sister who is 6 years old and gets excited every time he sees her. He is a sweet and gentle boy, who loves his squeaky toys, stuffed animals and tennis balls! Kobie walks well on the leash and knows a few basic commands; he is a well mannered, smart boy and has already learned how to use the doggie door in his foster home.

So far, Kobie seems house trained and has not had any accidents. He is not fond of the crate, so his foster mom leaves him out and he has done well, he has not shown any destructive behavior and would do best in a home where he does not have to be crated. Kobie would love a family where he spends minimal time alone, possibly a work at home/stay at home Mom or Dad. He is a big sweetheart with a face that melts your heart! Kobie has asked Santa to bring him the perfect family for Christmas, could you be on his list? If you are interested in meeting this cutie and are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator know you would like to meet Kobie or mention him on your application.

Hello. I’m Atticus. I dedicated my days to loving my person, who recently passed away, and then I found myself surrendered to a shelter. When ABR scooped me up, I had a mass on my hip the size of a honeydew melon. Thankfully, through the generosity of ABR angels, I was able to get the surgery I needed to remove that 4 lb. weight, plus some needed oral surgery, which has dramatically improved my treats consumption and quality of life.

I have been healing at my foster home and have been the perfect houseguest. I am kind and gentle with cats and dogs and people of all ages and sizes. I walk well on a leash (but frankly don’t really need one), only do my business in the yard, and have the most charming crooked smile you’ll ever see.

I have collected a lot of years, and that makes me steady and mellow, but I still have a lot of wiggle in this old tail yet. I’ll dance when I see you, the treats or my leash.

I’m looking for my forever home. I have given my life to being the loving support of my human and promise I still have lots more snuggles to give. But I also need a person (or two or three or . . . ) who will understand that my legs are a little bit tired and that, at this age with a lot of recent changes in my life, consistency is my friend.

You should also know that the mass that the doctors removed from my hip was a stage 2 mast cell tumor. It was very low grade (zero to be exact), but they were not able to get clean margins and don’t think that will be possible. This means that my family will need to be attentive to any bumps I develop in the future and have a good relationship with their vet who can help decide, at my advanced age, the best course of treatment. If think I’m your dream guy but want to know what this might mean for you and for me, my foster mom and ABR’s vetting coordinator would be happy to talk through this with you.

I am made to be a companion. I love to be near my foster mom and have a best dog friend in my current house too. Sometimes I go to work with my foster and sleep on my blanket by her desk and don’t make a peep all day. I will do best in a home that has a person at home most of the time or which has a steady (and not too rambunctious) canine companion for me.

If you are looking for a laid back, loving best-friend-of-a-Boxer, I’m your man (er . . . dog). Just mention Atticus on your application. I promise I’ll love you for the rest of my days.

My foster family says Im so sweet and I fit right in. I do know I'm full of energy and I love to play. When I see a leash I can't wait to join you for a walk. I know my basic commands, sit, stay and down. I'm pretty sure I could do more with treats and I learn quickly. My foster family is slowly working on some new tricks. I love to chew too so those heavy duty toys are what's best for me.

I love attention and my human foster siblings (8, 6 & 3) keep me busy. The youngest is my favorite, I think he's my best friend! He plays tug-of-war with me and I know to be gentle since he's so small. Sometimes he says I give too many kisses.

They do have these two furry cats but I don't really pay too much attention to them. They also have a dog of their own but she doesn't play too much, I think she may be pretty old. We do enjoy each other's company and get along well. Although, I do need to be fed separate. I really do love my kibble, I'm very protective of it and I'll try to eat others as well.

When they go places or its time for bed, my crate is the best place for me. Snuggling in my blanket is my favorite.

I'm potty trained too and I'll definitely let you know when I gotta go.

I am being treated for a mild skin infection and double ear infection. This isnt permanent and I'm healing quickly. I was born with a heart murmur, but its nothing a little medication can't control, which I take twice daily with breakfast and dinner. It is best if I dont get overly excited or go on long runs.

I'm soon to be neutered and microchipped and I'll be ready for my forever home!

Hi I'm Sugar and I live up to my name; I'm super sweet and I love to give kisses! I love being with people especially kids, I do great with all sizes! My foster family says that I am the sweetest girl ever and easy to fall in love with. I am house and crate trained and I actually prefer my crate, it makes me feel safe. My life before ABR was not so great as I look like I've been bred a few times and probably crated for long periods. I have not been in my foster home long so they have not had a chance to dog or cat test me, but think I may be too scared to meet any furry friends right now. I may need to be in an only dog home because I do get nervous when they get too close to my crate. Unfortunately, I do have heartworms and have to do my treatment before I am available for adoption, but my foster mommy thinks I will be healthy and ready just in time for Thanksgiving dinner! If you have a sweet tooth and looking for a fix, then mention Sugar on your application. If you are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator know you want to meet me! Can't wait to meet you! XOXO

Meet Simon! Simon is a shy, sweet, loveable boy. He has the most beautiful brown soulful eyes that are easy to get lost in. He has a great temperament and does well with kids and other dogs, however can become nervous/reactive around certain dogs, depending on their energy. He currently lives with multiple foster fur-siblings and does well with most of them. He would probably do best with another confident and well-mannered pup, especially a female. Simon is gentle and kind and loves to be with his people. Once Simon has completed his heartworm treatment he will be ready for his new home, could that be yours? If you would like to learn more about Simon or meet this sweet boy, just mention his name on your application or let our adoption coordinator know you would like to meet him.

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.

Meet Max! Max is a recent owner surrender to ABR looking for his fur-ever family! This sweet boy loves to play with his skin-sisters and fur brother. He does well with other dogs and is more of a chill kind of guy. Max does have a prey drive for cats, so he probably would not be suited in a home with small dogs as well. Max is great in the house and is house trained. He also does well left uncrated and does not have any destructive behavior. Max listens well and wants nothing more than to be with his people and enjoy life! If Max sounds like he could fit perfectly in your home, just mention him on your application or if you are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator you would like to meet MAX.

Look at me. I'm not like most boxers you see. I'm what's called a POCKET BOXER. I look just like a boxer but I only weigh 43 pounds. I pack all the punch of a boxer personality in to a smaller package. I love to chase balls and run. I get along with my foster fur siblings quite well. I know how to share toys and try to encourage my fur siblings to play. I know quite a few tricks, including sit, lay and stay. I will sit and wait patiently until I am told it is okay to dig in. I am a good listener! I am working on learning how to meet people. I know I am a "work in progress" when it comes to that skill. Part of learning how to meet people involved being rewarded with treats. I like treats so I am working really hard on my people meeting manners. My foster mom told me that my manners are what will make me a well rounded boxer and allow me to be placed in my fur-ever home. I can't wait to find my family! I'm going to knock 'em out with my love and intelligence. Look out world, here comes Juneau!

Hi everyone! My name is Champ and I have megaesophagus. That means it's hard for me to eat like a normal dog. I have to eat in a special chair called a Bailey Chair. It is custom made just for me! It is a necessity because without it, it's hard for me to eat without regurgitating and that's not good for me or my foster mommy. That means I can't keep my food down. My foster family says I have some more testing to be done before I can be cleared for adoption. It's really expensive, and they don't know yet what is going on with me. Some awesome folks donated, so I could get my Bailey Chair. If you'd like to donate to my testing and vet expenses, that would be great!!

Hi, my name is Abby! Anybody out there? I've been sitting here in my foster home for so long, and nobody wants to meet me. Don't get me wrong, I love my foster mom. But I would love nothing more than to find a forever home just once in my life. Is it because I have a couple of gray hairs on my face? Don't let those fool you! I am an energetic girl who loves to run around in the back yard! In case you didn't know, adopting a more mature gal like me sure does have its advantages! I am house broken and crate trained, yet I do well at home alone outside of the crate. I know the commands “sit” and “stay”, and do them well, especially when treats are involved. I will even alert you when there are strangers coming up to the house! Foster mom keeps reminding me that the mailman is a good guy, but I'm not so sure lol. I love humans and will follow you around from room to room wagging my nubbin because I'm happy just to be near you. I do like to have all the attention, so I would prefer to be your only fur friend. And because of my size and energy, foster mom is saying I may not be suitable for young children. Please consider giving me a chance! If you think I may be a good fit for you, please mention "Abby" on your application!www.atlantaboxerrescue.org. Already approved? Just mention ABBY to the adoption coordinator!

Bender is your one of a kind, true example of the boxer breed. He is a beautiful, smart, and loving companion. He loves to be by your side, and is very loyal to his people. His foster family says he is a sweet gentle boy who loves children of all ages and has never met a stranger, he loves attention. Bender is well mannered and listens to commands well. He loves playing fetch, keep away and tug of war! He does not show any food/toy aggression and loves getting new toys and loves his treats; he takes them very gently, even with kids. Have we told you how much he loves kids and how great he is with them?!

Bender is house and crate trained, but does have some separation anxiety that will need some work in his new home. He is not destructive in the home, but does have a tenancy to get into things (counter surf) if it's left out. He does not like being in the crate and can be a little escape artist. He would need a dog savvy family that can work with him and re-train him that the crate is a good, safe place. His foster family believes once he feels confident in his new home, this will go away in time. He can be left out with free roam, however his foster family said he will get into food, so everything must be put away on counter tops.

Right now, while Bender is gaining his confidence he would do best with a stay at home/work from home Mom or Dad. He would need a family that is committed to working/training with him. Bender will need work on dog socialization as he does not know how to greet/play with other dogs yet. He tends to come on too strong which can intimidate another dog into fight or flight mode. He does well with his senior fur sister, but will need work with meeting new friends outside the home. For now, his foster family thinks he will be fine as an only dog or with a well mannered, playful fur sibling and a family who will work on a slow introduction to set him up for success! Bender does have a strong prey for small dogs so that probably means no cats too. He has also jumped the fence at his foster home so he will need a home with a tall (6+ ft) fence so he can romp around in. Bender does love going on walks but will need work when he passes other dogs, since he wants to try and play with everyone, dog parks are not ideal for this silly boy. He would love going on hikes and would make a great running partner once he learns to focus on his human and not get distracted.

His foster family cannot say enough great things about Bender and how awesome he is! He loves to sleep right by his foster Dad and cannot get enough attention from his foster skin siblings, he is a total love bug! He will be a loyal companion to the right family who will give him the love, attention and positive training he needs to help him be the perfect family member we know he can be. Benders only wish this Christmas is to have a forever home soon, will it be yours? If you are looking for the perfect, loyal companion, look no further. If you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you want to meet Bender or mention him on your application.

Always happy. That are the two words that first come to mind with my mama thinks of me. It’s surprising that I am so happy and love humans so much after the vet found a nail in my leg that they said more than likely was from a human mistreating me!:( That story broke my foster mamas heart! However, I haven’t held what that one human did to me against any other humans I’ve met! I love humans and am so lucky the ABR humans found me so they can make sure I find the forever home that loves me the way I deserve to be loved :) I get along super well with my fur sister and have lived in a home with a fur brother who I also got along fine with! Here are some other cool facts about me:

My mama thinks I am the perfect foster pup as I am a great mix of intelligence, energy, and calmness. Adopting Diego might not change the world, but for Diego, his world will change forever. If you think Diego might be a good fit for your family, make sure you write “Diego” on your application!

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?
