Stella is an amazing Boxer girl who loves her people and gets along great with dogs, big and small. Not sure about cats. She's approximately 4 to 5 years old, fully vetted and HW negative. Stella is completely house trained and when left alone in the house, shows her best manners...no chewing or destruction! She's a cuddle bug and just wants to lay at your feet or snuggle with you in bed! I can't say enough "good" about this girl! She knows basic commands.

Alden, is a loving, cuddling sweetheart that wants to be by your side. She was taken from her previous owner by animal control for cruelty, according to her shelter paperwork. Being there for two months was taxing, but not compared to hunger and mistreatment. During the first week at her foster home she was a heavy sleeper, even fell asleep while sitting up. She is still a sound sleeper and continuing to put on much needed weight. Putting on weight with ease because she is a healthy eater, so much, she takes her pills in her dry food. This medium energy girl is a great house guest, only chewing on toys and is good on a leash. She is left out in the house because she has crate anxiety. Other than a few accidents peeing, she is house trained, and this is the only negative seen so far. Disagreeing in a normal tone of voice is all this girl needs for correction. For example, point to the floor while saying "off" to get her off the furniture. She can be a little sensitive at times, but encouraging words brings out her boxer personality. Being quite the personable typical boxer, she is curious about new things and situations like smells, people, and dogs. She is such a cuddler and will also snuggle up to the resident male and female dogs. She loves to be an inside dog. Alden, will open the screen door with her nose repeatedly making a knocking sound when she wants to come inside. A smart cookie and learns quickly from positive reinforcement with treats or vocal encouragement. If she sounds like a fit, then mention Alden on your application.

December


Gigi is an adorable, young, super-sweet, fun, boxer girl. She is mostly white with oval fawn patches. A few of the patches have very light brindle stripes in them. She was almost named Wi(G.G.)les because that is what she does constantly. She is a spunky girl. She loves to run, spin, and jump outside. She is crate-trained and house-trained. She is great with the resident Great Dane and was said to be good with other dogs at the shelter. She loves everyone she has met. Every person has been greeted with a huge body wiggle. Before her crate rest, she learned sit in a day. She knows that she is supposed to greet people with a sit. After her month of crate rest, sit (as opposed to jump) will need reinforcing. She walks well on an easy walk harness. In her prior life she appears to have been neglected. (You would not know that by her disposition). She was HW positive and came into the shelter with puppies. (They were all adopted before ABR met her). She also has scars on her neck from an embedded collar/tie out line. At some point in the past, she broke her back left hip. Her right hip has a pellet or BB in it. Since she has been on crate rest her left hip has not been bothering her. When it bothers her, she just does not use it as much. Knowing that it could cause her some discomfort at some point, she should only go to a home with children who are of an age where they will not accidentally bump into her, crawl on her, etc. Gigi would love to go to a home with another dog, a fenced yard, and people who are around most of the time. If you choose Gigi, you will be rewarded with a lifetime of wiggles! If she sounds like your kind of girl, please mention her on your application or send a note to the adoption coordinator.

December


Pebbles is a 3 year old brindle girl weighing in at 54 pounds. She was pulled from a shelter in Augusta, GA. She has likely lived most of her life in a crate and is very frightened of the unfamiliar surroundings outside of her crate. Her crate is her safe place and she will immediately run to it when she feels threatened or scared. She is slowly emerging from her shell and when she feels comfortable will give endless boxer kisses! She is housebroken and crate trained as she has had no accidents in her foster home. She is playing well in the yard with the small dogs in her foster home. She also has a boxer in her foster home but seems to be more at ease with the smaller dogs. If you are interested in a sweet boxer girl, mention Pebbles on your application.

December


What a journey this sweet boxer girl has had! She came to ABR with severe mange and through lots of care from her fosters, she is ready to journey no more. She loves cuddling on the couch and gives sweet boxer kisses. However.. she does stress when her foster mom or her fur-skin buddies are out of sight. She is an escape artist and will do almost anything when left alone. She gets along with most fur skins but is not real fond of cats or small dogs. Being alone in a crate is NOT an option unless shared with a fur-skin. Journey would do best with someone who is home full-time and/or has a fur-skin to keep her company. If you think she might be a fit, please be sure to put "Journey" on your application.

Bosco

Bosco

~2 Years

Male

56 lbs

Natural/Docked

Negative

December


Bosco is all boy and all boxer!  It’s hard not to fall in love with this silly boy when you first meet him.  He is very active and loves to play….he still has a lot of puppy in him so be ready!  Bosco will need help on his manners…he’s a little rough around the edges.  He will need to be taught how to greet people and other dogs.  He gets so excited he likes to lunge and jump on them.  Bosco will also need some reinforcement on how to walk on a leash.  He thinks it’s play time and forgets who’s walking who.  But don’t let all his mischief fool you; he is also a big sweet baby. 

Bosco seems to be house trained and has only had 2 accidents.  He will need to be worked with in his new home until he gets the hang of things.  He is eager to learn, but gets distracted very easily.  We are working with him on basic commands and the leash.  With a little work, patience and a good sense of humor, Bosco can be turned into a perfect gentleman.  He will need an active family with a big, fenced in backyard so he can burn off some of that energy.  A home with another dog to play with and children would be great, but probably not small children.  He would probably do best in a home with someone who works from home, or is home often as he craves attention.  Currently, Bosco is being treated for an upper respiratory infection and mange, but will be available for adoption after he is medically cleared.  Although he’s been sick, this has not slowed this boy down.  If you think Bosco would be a perfect fit for your family, please mention him on your application.

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.

Lil Bit

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 .

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?)

If you are looking for a boxer that loves life, please mention Sugar on your application.

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.

That face! Don't you just wanna hug this cutie p'tutie! Well, meet Petey ... the young, smart, affectionate, Velcro who's quickly learning his basic signs. Like some white Boxers, Petey's Deaf. But he doesn't know that ... in fact, sometimes he listens better than his foster fur sisters! He loves to spend his day playing catch and chase with his ball, snuggling up to his humans, learning his visual cues well (he's very eager to please, by the way), riding in the car, and bonding with his foster fur sisters. He's a social boy and gets along with other dogs after a slow introduction to accommodate his hearing deficit. Petey is young and energetic and loves to play, so he's looking for a family that's patiently able to continue to love him either as a single dog or with a low key fur sibling. His foster mom says "he's a smarty pants and a cutie p'tutie" who wants his very own family to love and protect.

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?

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.

Faith had quite the rough life before coming to ABR. She was found roaming the streets, severely malnourished and full of parasites.

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.
