Hi my name is Rex and I am a four year old male with natural ears and docked tail. I am looking for my forever home. I am a big boy of about 55 lbs. I am a high energy and rambunctious dog who relates well to my family and love my furry siblings although I would prefer a home where I am the only dog or with only one other dog preferable a female because I like to be the alpha. My favorite game is tug and I would be best suited in a home with older children such a teenagers. Boys would be best because I like to play like the boys do and sometimes forget my size. I am a very loving and loyal companion and am happiest when I am with my human family. I am smart and learn quickly. I have already mastered sit and working on other commands. I am a good car rider and do well in my crate. I also love long walks.

Hi, I'm Belushi! I was at the animal shelter for a long time, but just in the nick of time some nice man came and saved me. I love to give hugs and kisses. My foster mom would like you to know that I'm crate trained and housebroken...I think that means I only pee outside! I'm a healthy guy who just wants to find my forever home to enjoy the good life! If you want a loving, mellow, boy to add to your life, just ask for Belushi on your application.

My name is Gipsy! I am told that I am a very sweet little girl. I am a smaller girl with a pretty brindle color and some white markings. I am also known for my snagged tooth, it makes me even cuter! I am house trained and crate trained. I am very dog friendly and love playing with my fur brother and sister. I even have some skin kids to play with and I love all ages of them! I am good on my leash but could use a refresher course on my leash manners and my basic commands, I do know sit though! I love giving kisses but my most favorite is giving hugs. I am ready to find my forever family. If you think you might be the right family for me then mention me, Gipsy, on your application.

Hello World. Saybin here. I came to ABR in mid April. My former family has some illness of their own and decided I would be better off in a home that is able to care for me.

I escaped from my home and went off on an adventure for a couple of days; what was I thinking? While I was gone I hurt my right rear leg pretty bad. It seems I have a torn cruciate. Not so bad? It’s the ONLY rear leg I have. About 3 years ago something happened and I had to have my right rear leg amputated. I was fine with this until now. I’ve been gimping around on my hurt leg so my foster mom took me to the orthopedic surgeon. After poking and prodding and an x-ray, he determined I need a TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) surgery. This isn’t a cheap surgery, costing around $3,000 +/-. My goodness that’s a lot of money but ABR has stepped up to help me have the surgery. Now, I’m asking for you to help ABR help me. If everyone donates just a little bit it will help so much. Skip the gourmet coffee for a day, eat in instead of going out, there are lots of painless ways to help. And it’s so easy...Paypal is our friend. You can donate online here.

In the meantime, I’ll be hanging out at my foster home where the pack welcomed me with open paws. There is only 1 step for me to get outside and Mom helps me get back in. I can get in on my own but it is so much easier when she helps me.

OK then. Thank you for helping me help Atlanta Boxer Rescue help me.

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.

Cookie embodies many of the reasons senior dogs are great to adopt. One, they make great companions. Cookie is a big love bug and wants to be with you as often as possible. Cookie is also great with her 2 ½ year old foster skin-sibling and loves to peek in on her when her foster mommy is waking her up for school each morning. In addition to being a great human companion, Cookie also gets along with the female boxer that is in her foster home. (Smaller dogs and cats are objects of prey to her. So a home without those would be perfect.) Two, seniors do not require miles of exercise. A short walk around the neighborhood each day is perfect for her. Three, senior dogs ARE great at learning new tricks. Cookie has almost mastered house-training. (As a breeding dog, she never had a chance to learn that skill). While Cookie’s early life was rough, she is now ready to spend her golden years relaxing in her forever home. Cookie’s ideal home would be one in which she received the unconditional love she gives. If you want a loyal, loving, and relaxed companion and are looking forwarding to teaching Cookie some new tricks, please put her on your application today!

Hello I’m Alice! My foster mom says I’m such a sweetheart. I walk well on a leash and love to go for walks. I know I’m supposed to only potty outside. I also love to cuddle with you! I love my fur sister and I get along with the felines as well but sometimes I want to play with them and they don’t play back. I will go in a crate but I don’t like it very much. My foster mom always leaves me out and I’m always a good girl. I don’t like sharing my food with other dogs because I wasn’t fed very well before so I like to eat seperate. I love to play with squeaky toys they’re my favorite. I promise to be your best friend and give you unconditional love forever. If you think I’m your girl please mention my name in the application.

Hi, I’m Gidget! As my name implies, I’m a small but spunky girl. My foster mom says that I’m a laid back love – a real charmer. I walk well on the leash, know I’m supposed to potty outside and am patient, tender and loving with kids. I also love other a dogs. My foster fur sister is a much bigger and bossier boxer, and I just go with the flow. I like to go on walks and scamper after things in the back yard, but I’m also happy to lie down in whatever room my people are in and chill. I will bat my eyes at you to let you know I want to snuggle with you on the couch, but I’m also alright to just lay at your feet. I do okay in the crate, but it’s not my favorite, and I’m fine to be left out. My foster mom crates me at night because I’m a little overly exuberant with the kitty. I would be okay in a house with a cat and will leave them alone if you call my name or tell me un-uh. But you’ll need to help me know the boundaries. I’m a pocket boxer and very gentle. I would be a great solo dog or an addition to a full household. I promise you lots of wet kisses, Boxer wiggles and unconditional love. If you think I might be the girl for you, mention Gidget 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?

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.

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!

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. ABR volunteers worked incredibly hard to get her weight up and she is now happy and healthy, but longs for a forever family. Faith is completely crate-trained, leash-trained and house-broken. 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. If you would like to know more about Faith and meet her, please ask for her on your application!
