Hi. I am Cooper. I am a loving, family oriented male looking for a life-time commitment. I am affectionate and love to snuggle. I respond to a soft voice and words. I enjoy socializing with people, especially at coffee shops. I love my foster fur sisters and playing all day with Tygger (an ABR alum). I love long walks - I am wonderful on a leash. I love playing with my toys. I am doggy door and crate trained - although I do not need to be crated. I am free to roam my foster home and go outside as I like. The only thing I do not like is loud noises. I would be happiest in a family with older children, another dog to play with and a doggie door and fenced yard. If your family is looking for one more to love and be loved by, please put Cooper on your application.

October

Some people say beauty is only skin deep. They say that only because they have not had the good luck to meet Chester. He is a handsome boy whose striking good looks are more than matched by his loving spirit and delightful manners. He is crate trained, and contentedly enters his crate with little or no direction. He is house trained and very responsive to direction. Chester came to his foster family heart worm positive. He has endured the treatment and recovery with stoic good humor. As he has been allowed to spend more time out of doors, he has demonstrated himself to be a curious, playful, happy boxer. He is growing into a loving bundle of those boxer characteristics that make us love the breed so much. He wants to please. For example, when his crate is opened, he characteristically exits and then sits in front of you, politely waiting for you to scratch his ears. He likes people, but is comfortable exploring the world around him. He seems good with other animals. He was polite and friendly with other dogs, and was curious about but did not chase a pair of ducks with whom he shares a yard. If we are lucky, some time in our lives we have "that dog;" that special animal who is our friend, a member of our family, that special guy that enriches our lives forever. I know that whoever adopts Chester will have that experience, and I will be very happy for their good fortune.

Meet Sampson McLovin! This big teddy is house trained and crate tolerant. Great with small dogs (and was so sweet to kittens we met at the vet). He is super Laid Back / Chill and a HUGE Cuddle-bug!

This 78lb handsome fella prances like a King and is as sweet and gentle as he can be! The vet said by the looks of teeth and his healthy physique he looks to be around 5 years old and is just prematurely gray. He has no signs of arthritis and got a clean bill of health, besides a scratch on his eye and hook and tape worms from being at the pound. He has been dewormed and has ointment for his eye which he sits still and will let me do whatever I wish to him without pulling away.

Sampson McLovin loves human touch above all. He prefers to be in a lap or by your feet. He will walk on leash but is just as happy to skip the walk and lounge with his human or fur family. He looks ferocious yet greets delivery people with a solid stare and big wiggles. He barks at the printer and that is it thus far.( not much of a guard dog...yet) He would like to be a sous-chef in the kitchen, and has been caught checking out the counters when he thought no one was looking. I think Mr. McLovin was once a savvy street dog. He obeys our requests for no begging at the dinner table. You only have to ask him once. (which better than my teenagers).

Sampson has many years ahead of him and would make the perfect companion for someone that works from home or is retired. He will go into a crate, although he rather not and is patient for a few hours. He deserves a forever family that will love him equally as he loves. He is so handsome and total "catch" as a wise, house broken, crate trained, willing, loving, loyal and gentle cuddle bug. We only want him to go to home that is better than ours where his future family will not have to leave him alone for more than an hour or two a day.

My name is Bueller and I'm a sweet, gentle, loving big boy looking for a fur-ever family. My freedom started with an upper respiratory infection that got treated quickly and now I'm back to being a healthy, happy middle-age man. I have two bare patches on my back from some kind of burn...but I'm not quite sure what caused them. I'm gentle, and very easy-going when I'm with my owner! I like to cuddle, and be close to my "master", but I can just as easily sit by myself on a bed. I do very well in a crate and will go there in my own at times. I sleep on my own bed and don't make a big fuss over sleeping on yours. I'm not your typical male boxer- my energy level is a more subdued but I'm still a boxer at heart! I'm smart! - my foster dad taught me "sit" to a silent hand signal in a matter of days! I'm big on running around the yard, and I need a good fence to prevent me from getting loose. I need very slow introductions to other dogs, but I have proven my social skills well. I don't do very well with cats as I have a strong prey drive. I also can be aggressive with other male/dominant dogs. I have not displayed any aggression with kids/small dogs. If this handsome man sounds like he would be a good fit for you, put Bueller on your application!

Rocky was an owner surrender due to his previous owner getting a job in another state and unable to take him. Rocky is a sweet boy who is great in the house, doesn't need to be crated and is completely house broken. He loves his people and will make every move in the house that you make! He has shown no signs of food aggression and has done quite well with my small dogs but not sure how he does with cats. He has also done well with my female boxer after she told him who was the boss in the house! He is said to be between 8- 9 but he acts more like a 6 year old boxer and loves to play outside with his toys. Rocky is not good with very small children likely because he has not been around them before.

Rocky is looking for his furever retirement home where he could be with someone most of the day and who could take him for car rides so he can live out his golden years riding in style!! If Rocky sounds like the companion you've been looking for please fill out an application or let our adoption coordinator know you would like to meet him if you are already approved.

Hi everyone! My name is Louie. Before coming to ABR, I was living a rough life on the streets. I wound up with a few wounds that are healing now and I picked up a parasite that was taking all of my nutrients, but the doc has put me on some medicine to get rid of them and I’ve already put on 7 lbs! I also ended up with a nasty cough (Kennel Cough), but I’m taking medicine for that too to help me get better, so I should be healthy and ready in a couple of weeks!

I was a little scared of my new life because everything was so new to me. Car rides, warm beds, little people, other dogs, and especially cuddles are all things that I have grown to love in my first week with ABR. I’m so excited to learn to love even more things too!

I’m still a little cautious of my fur, foster brother who was rescued with me. He and I have shown each other a little “brotherly love”, but I have learned that these are bad manners and that when my foster mom and dad say “No” it really means no. I’m sure in time, I will learn to trust and be able to play with all dogs, but for now, I would likely do best in a house with a female. I get along great with both my fur foster sister and skin foster sister, who is younger than me. My fur foster sister and I enjoy our days romping around the backyard. At night, I enjoy cuddles with my foster parents and skin foster sister on the couch and in the bed.

I am crate trained but I don’t particularly like going in my kennel when my foster parents have to leave or when its time for bed, but I settle down pretty quickly for a nap/sleep. I know how to sit and I am working going potty outside every time, I am getting so much better! I am pretty good on a leash because I like my skin people to lead the way. Since I am still young, I have a lot of energy and love to play! A fenced backyard would be best for me but I will be happy with long walks also.

If I sound like a fit for your family just mention Louie on your application or let our adoption coordinator know you want to meet me! I’d greatly like a chance to show you what a great addition I would make.

This cutie pie has finished up his vetting and is ready for adoption! 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!

Hello boxer loving peeps! If you are looking for a fun, play all day, entertaining bundle of fur, then that’s Bruno! Bruno is new to ABR and is settling in his foster home. The one thing we know for sure is that he has ENERGY! Bruno could easily entertain himself all day with his toys. Did we mention he LOVES his toys! He does well with other dogs but we do not think he likes the kitty’s....he likes to bark at them as loud as he can…over and over and over and over, you get the picture. After a hard day of play, Bruno will conk out right next to you and is out for the rest of the night, this is when he turns into the cuddle monster. Bruno is young and active and will need a home that can keep up with his energy and help him work on his manners. Bruno does need some work on the leash, so a harness would work best with him. He is also house and crate trained and seems to catch on quick to voice commands. Bruno does well with kids, but probably not suited for a family with small children, as he may accidentally knock them over when playing and running around. He would do well with an active family that can help him get out all his energy in a fenced in backyard and maybe even go for hikes, walks/runs on occasion. If Bruno sounds like your type of guy, just mention him on your application or if you are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator know you want to meet Bruno!

Hi Boxer friends! Just a quick update on Bruno. He has been with us now for a little over 6 weeks and doing great! Although, initially Bruno seemed very active and high energy, he has actually settled down after a couple of weeks in his new environment and now that the newness wore off. He has done great in his foster home and has done very well with his skin foster sister, who is almost 6, and his two fur foster siblings. He is a friendly boy that loves to play however, would be best suited with other dogs with similar personality, and not try to be dominant with him. Bruno would also be content as an only dog if he was with a family where he could get lots of attention and not left alone for long periods of time. Bruno still loves his toys, especially anything round and resembles a ball! He is not toy aggressive however, when you pick up a ball all eyes are on you! Bruno does have good manners and knows sit, stay, down and shake. He does not jump up on people, but does get a little excited when playing outside, especially fetch....with a ball! He does great in the house, with no destructive behavior and is seldom ever crated. He is house and crate trained and can easily entertain himself chewing on nylabones or playing with his toys. Bruno does need work on the leash and does best with an easy walk harness and usually settles into the walk after about 10 minutes. He is a strong boy that needs a fenced in yard where he can run and play, but also a big ol’ baby that loves to be with his people. Bruno has proven to be a real sweetheart that loves to snuggle with his people morning, noon and night and will follow you around the house. I would have to also say that Bruno is more on the no side of cat, small dog or lawn mower friendly. Although he means no harm, when he see’s either of these 3 things he will BARK continually and turn into a little obnoxious boxer pup; however, he is easily corrected and does seems to catch on quick! Bruno would love to have a family of his own where he would get lots of love and attention! If Bruno sounds like your type, please mention him on your application or if you are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator know you would love to meet him!

Hi I'm Diego and I'm your typical fun loving boxer. I get along great with my foster fur sister and brother. My sister loves to play with me. I try to boss her around sometimes, but she doesn't like that. I would love a home where I could be boss.

I love my walks so much. I get really excited when my foster mom or dad go to the door and grab my leash. I start to jump around. My foster parents are teaching me to sit and be calm at the door before I get my harness on and go outside. I walk really well on my harness. I don't pay attention to the dogs that bark in the fences along the walk. I just keep going. I've never been around a cat, but I think I would like to chase it so I would do better with out them.

Since I like to eat everyone's food after I eat mine I'm fed separately until my foster siblings are done eating. Then once we are done we can all hang out again.

I love playing with the older kid at my temp fosters house, but I do like to jump when I get excited so I probably wouldn't do well around little kids. I'm working on my jumping though. I just get so excited sometimes!

I'm learning some basic commands like sit and down and I'm pretty good at coming when you call me too. I'm really good at sitting before the door opens to go outside and sitting for my food too. My favorite thing to do is to help you cook. I just love food. I'm an excellent helper, and I will taste anything you give me and let you know if it's good or not. When I was at my temp fosters house she fed me broccoli and I loved it. My other favorite thing is to hang out with my dad. I follow him everywhere. I just love him.

I had some lumps removed a few days ago that I'm healing up from right now, but after that I get to go to my forever home. If I sound like the perfect boy for you put my name on your application!

Rex is a 5 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.

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 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?
