Meet Baby! She is as sweet as they come and would love nothing more than to be a part of your family! This girl was found by a good Samaritan after witnessing her being thrown from a truck. Luckily someone was in the right place at the right time! Despite this horrible act, Baby loves people! She loves cuddling, giving kisses and getting lots of attention. Her current foster home has 2 boxers, a male and female, and does well with both. Baby can be a little cranky when she is resting and other dogs try to get in her space. She would love to be an only dog but would also be fine with a mellow dog that knows not to disturb her while she is getting her beauty sleep. She has not displayed any food or toy aggression and does well on a leash. Baby has not been around cats so we are unsure how she would do with them. She has met a few older kids on walks and she loves the attention she gets from them. Baby is house trained and crate trained and has not shown any destructive behavior in her foster home, she has been a perfect house guest. We have confirmed that Baby is deaf, although it does not affect her ability to love and manage the world around her. Baby had TPLO surgery in June and is recovering well. She is ready to find a home with a family that will take her on daily walks to build the muscle back up in her knee. Baby also has some arthritis in her joints which she takes daily supplements for and would be best suited in a home with limited stairs. Baby would love to find her forever family and is hoping they are looking for her too! If you are searching for a super sweet low maintenance kind of girl, then just mention Baby on your application. If you are already approved, then just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you want to meet Baby.

Jago has been waiting a while to find his forever family, a year to be exact! It is no fault of Jago's that he is still in the rescue, he just has not had any luck finding a committed family that will help him be the best pup he can be. Lots of families fall in love with his cute face and don't realize that he has been through a lot and needs a family that is committed to his well being. Jago needs time to settle in, continued work on his training and nothing to overwhelm him at first. Jago came into the rescue as an owner surrender; both his parents were undergoing cancer treatments and Jago needed someone who could give him more time and attention. They were heartbroken to surrender him but knew ABR could help find him what he needed.
Jago is a very handsome and affectionate young boy! He does have some energy and would do best in a home that is active and with a fenced in yard. He is your typical playful, silly, wiggle butt boxer who loves attention, sometimes pestering you until he gets it. He LOVES his toys and can easily entertain himself as long as he has several to choose from. He has great house manners and is not destructive, he does well with free roam or can be crated.
Jago looks to his people for direction and needs a patient leader to help guide him in the world. Although he seems like a big, strong and confident dog, he has not been socialized too much and is afraid of new things, which makes him bark. Jago has been in a 4 week training program to help work on his reactivity with new things (passing people, cars, other dogs on walks) to help him realize the world is not so scary. We sought out a training program for Jago, because we wanted to help him find a great home and knew getting him the training needed would open up more opportunities to find him the best home. He has made HUGE progress and we are so proud of him! Jago comes with lifetime training at this facility in Atlanta so he can continue his progress.
Jago is house/crate trained and walks well on a leash. He is learning how to meet doggy friends, though we feel he would do best with a female fur sibling or as the only dog in the home for now so his family can concentrate on his needs and continue to work with him. Because of Jago's energy and size, he is looking for a home with older kids or no kids. He is looking for a family that is committed to work with him at home and also continue to take him to training sessions as needed at the facility in Atlanta, which has already been paid for by ABR. Please don't just fall in love with this boy's pretty face, he needs someone in his corner that will give him the family he's been waiting for and that we promised his surrendering family we would help find. Jago has so much love to give - he is a diamond in the rough just waiting for the right family to polish him up with training, guidance and love! If you would like to meet Jago and maybe attend one of his training sessions to learn more about him, then fill out an application and mention JAGO. If you are already approved and meet his requirements, just email the adoption coordinator and let them know you want to meet.

Diesel and Bindi have always taken care of each other and they hope there is someone who will take care of them. They have been anxiously waiting to find the home they've been dreaming of and fill the void of losing their first home; they want nothing more than to share their unconditional love with an amazing family! If Diesel and Bindi seem like the missing piece to your family puzzle, just mention them on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be added to their list.

Phoebe is a very sweet girl and well mannered. She is a little timid when she first meets new people but warms up quickly. She has only been in her foster home for a couple of days so we don't know much about her yet (more info to come once she recovers from her spay). We do know she is crate trained and appears to be house trained. She has not been officially tested with other dogs but she does not seem to mind having them around. Phoebe will be spayed soon and then will be ready to find her forever home. If you are interested in Phoebe mention her on your application. Already approved? Email the adoption coordinator and let them know you want to meet Phoebe!

My name is Cooper! ABR saved me back in July and helped me complete heart worm treatment. I am now healthy and looking for my furever family. I am great with kids and love to snuggle. I have played with little dogs and big dogs and get along just fine. I am still unsure of cats so a home without might be ideal. I love to travel and go on walks. Being in the crate is easy for me and I am can be left out for free roam when my foster parents go shopping. The perfect family is someone who likes to take walks and maybe a fur sister who can keep me company.

Hi, there! My name is Sinatra, but I prefer the more informal: Frank. When you get a glimpse of my baby blues, you'll understand why I'm named after Ol' Blue Eyes. My foster mom says I'm a total dreamboat. I am a happy and appreciative pup. I like other dogs but I'm really the most interested in hanging with my people. Young, old? Doesn't matter; I'm a fan. I'm a little too interested in kitties, though, so if you have one (or a gerbil or bunny), I might not be your guy. Other than that, I'm pretty easy going most of the time.
Life before coming to ABR was not the easiest for me, so I'm showing a bit of wear and tear. My joint are a little squeaky, and I've got some weakness in my hips, so I can't really rough house with other pups. I struggle on the hardwoods when I first wake up, but once I'm up and moving, I do okay. But when the breeze starts blowing or my fur sister starts running in the yard, I can still put on a good show. A lot of white boxers are deaf, but not me, though I can't really hear very much. Still, if you call my name, I will perk right up. I will be adoptable once I finish my crate rest in December. After that, I'll have some follow up vetting that will be needed, which an ABR representative can talk you through.
I know that I'm supposed to go potty outside, but I came into ABR with some medical issues and am just now able to control my bladder. But I would benefit from a forever home with someone who can let me out a few times per day. I don't really love the crate, but I'm okay behind a baby gate in a small room, and I am trustworthy not to chew your stuff if you leave me.
My dream come true would be a stay-at-home family member or someone who would take me to work. I would love to keep you company and will be so faithful to make sure you never get lost or too far out of my sight (unless I need to catch a short nap). I never bark, except a little in my dreams sometimes, but I can let out the most enchanting snore. (That's just what I've been told.)
I know that I'm a diamond in the rough (or "ruff"), but my foster family can vouch that there is no pup who will show his appreciation for your love more than me. I was a shell of a dog when I was rescued - skin and bones, afraid for my face to be touched and too scared to go anywhere new without being carried. Now, if you show me love, I'll follow you anywhere. Think you might want to love me forever? Ask the adoption coordinator about Sinatra.

Hello, my name is Fancy. I am estimated to be between 7-9 years old with the mind of a 2 or 3-year-old. I came to ABR as an owner surrender and spent most of my time outside. I am very curious and want to know about everything I've missed out on these past years, everything is so new to me. I love toys especially thick rubber toys I can chew on and shake. Sometimes I get confused and think everything is a toy! I am very fond of people and other dogs. I follow my foster mom everywhere and love to get her full attention. I love belly rubs and going for walks. I could use some leash training and an easy walk harness because I get so excited I tend to pull on the leash. I do know some basic commands, sit and lay down but sometimes get distracted because I want to play. I'm a little on the smaller side than most boxers, but big on love and personality.
I don't bark, but may give an occasional bark at a stranger outside. I'm not as much of a licker as most boxers either, but I will give kisses. My foster mom was told that I was dog friendly by my previous family. I do well with my older/smaller foster fur-brother. We play tug of war with our toys. I also see other dogs on my walks outside and am friendly with everyone I meet. I have not been exposed to young children or cats, so I don't know how I would act, but based on my sweet disposition, I bet I would be great! My foster mom says that I am very sweet and well behaved!
I have done very well with house training, but my foster mom takes me out frequently. I'm not sure how well I would do holding it for long periods of time. I do great in my crate which is good since I just started my heartworm treatment and will be on restricted activity/crate rest for the next 6 weeks! I can't wait to finish my treatment and get back to playing, exploring and taking walks outside......oh and finding YOU...my forever family! If we sound like a perfect fit, then just mention Fancy on your application or if you already approved, ask the adoption coordinator to be put on my list!

Hi, my name is Joey Tribbiani – How you doing? I am a sweet, distinguished older gentleman who likes to eat, get my head scratched and sleep most of the day. I came to Atlanta Boxer Rescue in not so great shape, I had a bad respiratory infection, allergies and a pretty nasty infection in both my ears. But with some medicine and TLC, I am so much better! I am an older guy just looking for a retirement home where in return I can give you my love and loyal companionship. I do have some arthritis in my knees but that is much better too with some Rimadyl and joint supplements. I am house trained and LOVE my crate. My foster mom made me this great pillow that I love to sleep on, I love my crate so much that I am a little protective of it when people come to visit and will bark at them but that's it. I would probably do best in a quieter home. I get along great with my furry housemates but because of something called heartworms I have not been out and about much. I am on my last week of recovery and will be ready to find my forever home. If you are looking for a low maintenance senior Boxer, ask for Joey T. on your application!
