Hi YA'LL! I'm Scooby and new to the rescue. I am what they call an "owner surrender". My previous family knew that there was a better home for me out there to give me the love and attention I need. I am so super excited to meet and see people, so I may need some work on my pup manners. I do correct easily as I always want to please my people. The good folks at ABR think once I get into a home and get the proper exercise and attention that I have been missing, that I will be alot better with my excitement. I do well with kids, but again, I may jump to show how happy I am, so probably not a home with small kids or a boxer experience family. My previous family said I have done well with other dogs in the past and lived with children. Don't let my age fool you, I love playing a good game of fetch and romping around the yard. I love everyone I meet especially if you want to give me a pat on the head or a good ear scratch. If you are looking for a fun, loyal companion then I'm your man! Just mention Scooby on your application or if you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you want to meet me.

Hi my name is Hope and I am hoping to find my forever family soon! I am a very loving, well behaved girl, who loves lots of hugs, and being close to my people. I love playing with my ball, I even try to remember to bring it back, but sometimes I get distracted by a bee flying by instead! I don't mind going in my crate at all especially if things are really noisy and there is too much going on, cuz I kinda like things to be calm and quiet. Oh did I say how good I am on a leash? I love going for walks. Like most girls, I would prefer to be your "one and only" as I am pretty selective on fur friends. I am very cautious with strangers, especially men, so it takes me a bit to warm up and know that you are ok. My ideal family would have a quiet home, where there aren't any children or a lot of strangers coming and going that will scare me, I don't like that much. They don't have to worry about me getting in the way, cuz I am really good at watching where you are going, I just like tagging along! I do need lots of love and hugs, a treat here and there, oh and hopefully a fenced yard so you can throw my ball for me! If I sound like we could be a good fit, just mention me on your application or if you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you want to meet Hope.

Do you believe in happily ever after? My foster mama told me that she knows my happily ever after and my forever family are just a couple weeks away! My foster mama calls me smarty pants because on my first day with her I showed her all the tricks I already knew! I know how to sit, lay down, off/down, come, and I even know how to stay REALLY well. Someone must have loved me at some point in my life to teach me all of these things, which my mom thinks is easy to understand, because she says I am very easy to fall in love with! Here are some more things about me: 

I will be available in a couple more weeks, so if you think you might be my "happily ever after," mention me on your application! If you're already approved, mention MARLON to the adoption coordinator!

My foster Mom calls me "mature" but I still have lots of spunk in my step! I love my toys, especially my stuffed elephant! I can do a little wiggle dance too. I came to Atlanta Boxer Rescue with a lot of "bumps" that needed to be removed. So I had surgery and now I just need time in my foster home to heal. I have some arthritis in my knees, but other than some stiffness it doesn't bother me too much. I am housed trained, I go out and get my business done quickly and come to the door and scratch to be let back inside. I am also crate trained and sleep all night in it with rarely a peep. I get along with most other dogs, especially my foster brother. I don't jump up on people either! I have not met a cat yet so I don't know if I like them or not.

Hello world! My name is Grayson and I came into ABR in not so great shape. I had lesions covering my body and the vets could not figure out what it was or how I got it, they think it was from stress! Can you imagine that! I've had several tests and everything came back negative so for now, I am just taking some medicated baths which has improved my skin SO MUCH! I look and feel 100% better! My foster mommy says I am a very sweet and lovable boy! I have started to become more playful and I love my foster fur-sister, she's a lot of fun! I am dog friendly, but I am not sure about cats. I do well with kids and I love to be petted, but I am not crazy about being hugged real tight, so probably a home without small kids would be ideal since it's hard to monitor and teach them how to gently hug. I love to cuddle and lounge with my people. I do well in the crate and I am house trained, however my foster mom does let me out for a mid-day potty break when she's at work. My foster mommy says I am showing more personality every day! I am so excited to start my next chapter in life and can't wait to meet my new family! If you think you may be my match, then mention Grayson on your application. If you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you want to meet me.

Meet Otis! This sweet boy has stolen the hearts of many. He is a gentle giant that is adjusting to life outside the scary shelter. Otis is friendly to all and likes to give hugs. He loves to cuddle, run and play ball. He is a very sweet and laid back pup that is working on trust. Otis is still a little unsure of things, so we think he would benefit from an experienced dog owner, especially one with boxers and/or rescue pups. He has met several people including kids and has done great. Because of Otis' size and his needs, we feel he would benefit in a home without children. He has done wonderful with his foster fur-sister, a Great Dane, who you can find him snuggling with throughout the day. He is house and crate trained, but doesn't like to be forced in the crate; simply toss a treat in and he will follow. Otis walks well on the leash and loves the company of his humans. He would prefer a home where he is not left for long periods....oh, and a fun fur-sister would be nice, too! Otis is currently recovering from his recent neuter surgery and will be available to meet soon. If you think you are a perfect match for Otis, then just mention him on your application or if you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and let her know you would love to meet Otis.

Meet Bindi! This beautiful girl is new to ABR and ready for her forever home. Bindi is a sweet, loving, beautiful brindle girl. She is still young and has a lot of energy. She loves walks and romping around the yard. She loves her people and likes to be your shadow. She also loves kids! Bindi came into the rescue because she was not getting along with one of the other dogs in the home. It seems she only does well with very submissive dogs and will likely need to be an only dog. She has lived with cats and does well with them. Bindi's perfect family would be able to get her the exercise she loves and not be left for long hours. She has great house manners. She will get onto the couch and bed, but will jump down if she is told to. She is also fully house and crate trained. Bindi is just an all around sweetheart who deserves the best!

Meet Miss Cocoa. You may have seen her face around ABR a time or two. Her start with us has been a rough one...first a surgery to remove several mammary tumors, which were benign and recently a hip surgery but this sweet girl is still hanging tough! Cocoa came to ABR after being left by her family when they moved. She lived with 2 other dogs, however since with ABR and in her foster home, she prefers to be the only dog. We feel with her multiple moves and surgeries that she is a little insecure and we would love to find her a permanent home soon so she no longer has to worry about moving again. Cocoa will need a home that understands she's been through a lot and will be patient while she adjusts and give her the care and love she deserves. Cocoa loves people and just wants to please, she will be your shadow until she settles in to her new environment. She appears to have some separation anxiety but is not destructive, she just likes to collect and spread your items all over the house, like she is nesting. Cocoa is a perfect pup, she doesn't bark or beg, she is just looking to be your one and only. She is house trained but does not like the crate, so she will need a family that is comfortable with free roam in the house. Cocoa still has several more weeks of recovery from her hip (FHO) surgery, but we would love to go ahead and get this sweet lady into her forever home where she could mend while also bonding with her new family. Cocoa is looking for someone who is not gone for long periods, a retiree or work from home parent would be great, and someone who needs her as much as she needs them. If you are interested in helping Cocoa during her recovery and giving her the life she has been waiting for, then just mention her on your application. If you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you want to meet Cocoa!

Meet Syndi, she's the new girl on the ABR block! So far, she has been a dream of a girl and showing lots of her sweet and playful personality. Here is a little bit about Ms. Syndi and what we've seen so far with her personality: She is good with other dogs, she has shown no signs of food or toy aggression. She loves to cuddle but is still active and playful and would benefit from a family who is active and has a fenced in yard to exercise her. She loves her people and doesn't like being crated/confined, but so far is doing well with free roam. She doesn't jump much, she is pretty mild tempered, but does get excited upon initial greeting, especially when coming home. She has done well on her house training, but as all new dogs, will need work in any new home on where to go. Syndi would love a family who doesn't leave her for long periods through out the day, the shelter was a scary place and she just wants someone to love and some stability in her life. So far, she only knows sit, but we are sure with some positive training and a little bit of time, she will catch on quick! This girl has been nothing but sweet and we are hoping her happy ever after is coming soon! If you think Syndi would be a great match and are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you would like to meet Syndi or fill out an application and make sure to mention her name!

Deuce is a playful, happy boy with such sweet energy. Despite everything he has gone through and his challenging road to recovery, he has had no problems adjusting to life on 3 legs! He loves to play but also loves to sit back and relax. He does very well with the children in his foster home, who are 7 and 9 and eats up all the love and attention his human people give him. Deuce is also dog friendly and a such a social guy, you can't help but fall in love with him once you meet him. He likes to be close to his people and fur-siblings, so a family who has a lot of time, love and attention to give is a must! Deuce has been through a lot during his short time with ABR; a leg amputation, surgery to remove a bladder stone and now heartworm treatment, but through it all he still remains a very positive and happy boy! He is currently on a prescription food (Hills) to help with prevention of bladder stones, and he may always need to stay on a special diet. Right now, he is getting through his crate rest period from heartworm treatment but cannot wait to get back to being the playful guy he is and meeting potential families where he can live life to the fullest! If Deuce sounds like a perfect match for you, just mention his name on your application. If you are already approved and would like to meet Deuce when he is medical cleared, just email the adoption coordinator and ask to be put on his list.

Hi, my name is George and here is a little of my story. When my owner passed away, I stayed with some nice neighbors for a couple weeks but they could not afford to care for me and I found myself at the local shelter. My wonderful ABR family rescued me but I had to spend a little time in boarding until my foster family could bring me home. I think with all the changes in my life, that it has caused me to be a little insecure and I do not like being by myself , mainly because I love people! I have not met one person that I have not loved. Thankfully, my foster Mimi works from home and I spend the day by her side or just a few feet away relaxing on the sofa while watching the Hallmark Channel. I don't mind going in my crate on my own terms, but please do NOT close the door. I like my crate, but I don't like to be confined, it makes me anxious. My foster family has not been able to test me with free roam yet since I am recovering from heartworm treatment and on restricted activity. I'm a hungry boy and I get SO excited when I hear my bag of food rustling and when I see food,that I sometimes jump. I enjoy going outside, relaxing listening to the birds, and watching the acrobatic squirrels. I cannot wait until I am finished with my heartworm treatment so I can go on those long walks with my foster family they are always talking about. I love going into the bushes and shrubbery so everyone at ABR calls me George of the Jungle. My foster Mom feels I would make a great hiking buddy when I can resume to normal activity. My foster family was told I do not like cats. I haven't been dog or kid tested yet, I am looking forward to meeting my foster fur siblings soon, I sure hope all goes well. My perfect forever home would have someone who works from home or stay at home so I am not alone much, someone who is patient and knows how to train me so I can master basic commands. I want to please because I love my peeps but I have a lot to learn. I am house trained and do my business outside. I'm a bit clumsy because I have a slight vision impairment, they call it nuclear sclerosis, so I would probably do best in a home without small children as I may accidentally bump into or step on them. I really don't need much except a warm and compassionate family that will love me forever. If I sound like a match for you, then mention George on your application, or if you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and ask to be put on my list.

Chloe is a sweet, gentle soul who has had a rough life pre-ABR. She is slowly gaining weight and learning to trust she will have a meal later, though sometimes helps herself to "counter snacks". She is warming up to her foster parents and fur foster brother. She is not a fan of aggressive play as this seems to incite bad memories but she LOVES hanging out and napping. She enjoys walks and being in a fenced yard where she can chase little creatures. Chloe would do best with someone who can lounge around with her. She feels safe in her crate next to people overnight but does not enjoy being left for long periods in it.

Do you know a dog that loves to talk? Meet Millie! She is a big talker! She will let you know whenever she wants to go outside to go potty, when it's breakfast or dinner time, or just any time she wants your attention. It always makes her foster family laugh!

This sweet girl was found as a stray, but life is only getting better for her now. Millie is a smart girl who knows the sit command and is quite good at catching any treats thrown her way. She walks well on a leash and does not react to people or other dogs, however she is not fond of squirrels. She gets along well with her little foster fur brother and other dogs, but has not been tested around cats yet. Millie also rides well in the car and has gone on several day trips with her foster family.

Millie is a people pleaser and only wants to be with her family. She is house trained but does not like the crate and has shown separation anxiety in her foster home. Millie would do well with someone who is at home during the day so that she has minimal alone time. She has recently started medication to help with her separation anxiety which has helped, especially as she is recovering from heartworm treatment. Millie will be ready to find her forever family soon. if you think she sounds like a match, just fill out an application and mention Millie. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be added to Millie's list. Millie can't wait to "talk" to you!

Hi there! I'm Mr. Darcy – as pale and dreamy as the romantic lead from British literature. I had a bit of a rough go of it when I first arrived at ABR – with heartworms and a fractured pelvis. But I am better and just working on regaining my strength now.

As my name suggests, I'm a perfect gentleman. I like dogs, cats and people of all shapes and sizes. I go into the crate easily and am trustworthy when left out. And I've got the potty training thing down pat. It is taking me a little bit of time to learn to use my inside voice, and I am pleased to alert you to any noise I deem troubling. As I have learned to be an inside guy, I have mellowed to unknown stimuli every day, but my forever family will need to be patient with me my first couple of weeks as I tend to be a little anxious in new environments. Once I warm to you, I'll bring you treats and lay at your feet to show you my affection.

Right now, I'm on a walking plan to strengthen my back legs. I walk well in a harness, and being out in the neighborhood brings me great joy. Speaking of joy: I love to ride in the car and am a great travel companion, and I am a silly goose (my foster mom's words not mine) with my toys and sure to put a smile on your face when I wiggle and squiggle, and act like a puppy.

I have a touch of hip dysplasia in both of my back hips. I currently don't require medication for that, but walks will help keep my legs strong, and I will need a forever person who doesn't mind that I may have some mobility issues in my future. Right now, I can run and hop and jump onto my favorite chair just fine (though I'm not supposed to really do any of that for a few more weeks).

I am a loyal and chivalrous friend and will make a good addition to a family with kids older than 5 (I'm a little unaware of my size.), someone single, with pets, or without. Basically, I just want a place to snuggle up and a toy box of my own. If you're interested in learning more about me, please mention Mr. Darcy on your application.

Introducing Jack and Sally! This adorable pair found their way to ABR after being picked up as strays. They are beginning to adjust to their new life, but they are both very scared and unsure of the world around them. They have come a long way but are both still timid. Their foster family is seeing more of their fun, playful personality each day, but they are still very cautious and feel most comfortable in their safe place, aka the couch. Jack and Sally aren't comfortable walking around the neighborhood yet, but they enjoy going to an open secluded park where they can run and chase each other without worry. A home with a fenced in yard is a must as these two love to play in a safe environment. When they aren't playing, Jack and Sally can usually be found snuggling each other. Sally is very motherly towards Jack. She leads the way and always keeps an eye on him. She also gives top-notch kisses to her humans. Jack has more of a puppy personality. He likes to nibble, play with squeaky toys, steal socks, and sit on top of Sally when she's trying to rest. Like most puppies, Jack needs some work on his manners and learning not to jump on people when he gets excited. Jack and Sally look to each other for assurance and will need to be adopted together so they can help each other build confidence. They will need a patient family who can appreciate a pair who will need a little extra love and time to settle into a new environment. They are crate trained and would prefer a quiet home without any small children or other pets. These two will give you all the love you need! Both are still working on refining their house-training skills, so they need a family that is able to do a mid-day break or someone home during the day to let them out for potty breaks. If you think you have room for two and they sound like a match, then mention Jack and Sally on your application. If you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you would like to meet them.

Meet Baby! She is as sweet as they come and would love nothing more than to be your "Baby". 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 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 jealous when attention is being given out (gives a warning snap to her foster fur-sister) so she may do best as the only pet or with an experienced dog owner that understands this behavior and able to work with her. She seems to be very tolerant of energetic pups and despite her jealousy of attention, Baby loves to be the Momma to her foster fur-siblings, cleaning them often, although she is the youngest of them! She has not displayed any food or toy aggression and does well on a leash. We are unsure how she is with cats or small children since her foster family do not have either in the home. 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, she has adjusted well in her foster home. Baby had FHO surgery back in October and is recovering well. We feel she is ready to find her forever home with a family that is willing to do physical therapy exercises with her and possibly open to land and water therapy in a veterinary rehabilitation center. Baby also has some arthritis in her joints which she takes daily supplements for. Baby would love to find her forever family and is hoping they are looking for her too!

Meet Izzy! Izzy is a very social puppy who craves attention. She has a natural tail and it is constantly wagging! Her foster home does not have children but with Izzy's loving and friendly personality she should do well with kids. However, as with many puppies Izzy is jumpy when she shows affection. Izzy is a quick learner and has already mastered "sit". She is working on not jumping and learning "stay" and "paw". She would do best in a home that will continue to work on her obedience training. Izzy is making progress with house training. She is crate trained and will quietly go into her crate when asked. She loves to snuggle on the couch with her foster parents and her 3 foster fur siblings. You can often find her sandwiched between her fur brothers! When she isn't snuggling she loves to play with toys and run zoomies in the backyard. Her foster home also has 2 dog-savvy cats and Izzy tries her hardest to play with them. She corrects well when she is told not to bother the cats. Izzy's ideal family would have a fur sibling that she can play with who would enjoy the energy of a puppy. She would also do best in a home with a fenced backyard since she loves to run zoomies. If Izzy sounds like the perfect addition to your family submit an adoption application today!

Jago is a handsome and affectionate young boy with lots of energy! His foster mom says he is a real wiggle butt! He knows all his basic commands and walks well on a leash. This big energetic boy may be to much for small kids, so a home with older kids (teens) would be best. Jago is very treat motivated and eager to learn, boy is he smart! He looks to his people for direction and would benefit from a strong, patient leader to help guide him in the world. Jago's foster mom recently took him in for formal training to work with him on perfecting his boxer manners which she encourages his new family to continue. A little bit of training can take this handsome guy a long way. Jago is a perfect house guest who does great with free roam. He is house trained and has no destructive behavior, so no crate needed. Jago will alert you if there is someone at the door, or in sight of the home, he is very attentive. Jago is looking for a forever home where he can get all the attention and exercise he needs. His ideal home would include a fenced in yard (5ft or higher) so he can burn off some boxer energy and he'd also make a great jogging/hiking partner. He is hoping to find a patient and loving owner who is committed to his care and well being. We aren't sure how Jago will do with other dogs or cats, so for now he should be an only pet in the home. Jago LOVES his toys and can easily entertain himself; his favorite game is how many can I stuff in my mouth! If Jago sounds like your kinda pup, then mention him on your application.

Hi, my name is Otto and I am a beautiful fawn boxer. I am ready to find my forever family and cannot wait to give you all the love you deserve. I am a typical happy boy boxer, I love my people, I love to cuddle, I love to play with toys and I can be stubborn and willful. I really am still a puppy, a little clumsy at times and just learning my manners. I still need training to be a perfect little gentleman. Since I am a puppy, I sometimes mistake non-toys for toys and well you cannot tell they are not toys unless you taste them. Although I look like an adult – I am a puppy and have a huge amount of energy and I play, play, play and then sleep. Repeat. Repeat again.  One of my favorite things is to go on walks to the coffee shop. When I am there people come up to me and pet me and admire me. I love people and I love attention! I also often see my new friend, a small Cairn terrier and we visit and play a little each time. At my foster home I have two fur siblings – both ABR alums. We all get on splendidly and I love to play all day with my bestie, Tygger. If I could have a fur sibling to play with at my new home that would be the best and possibly a fenced in yard, I have a ton of puppy energy I need to burn off.  My foster Mom thinks I would not be good with cats as I like to chase squirrels. I would love active skin parents who would play with me. I have a doggie door at my foster house and I like that a lot. I will go into my crate if you throw food in it. I do not enjoy the crate, I will whine and bark for a while and then lie down and look sad until you let me out. I was sick for a while, but the good doctors at GVS fixed me up and I am better and now ready for my forever family. I know my family is out there and I cannot wait to meet you and love you and be loved back. Wanna play?
