Hi, my name is Gypsy! I am about 9 months old and I came into ABR with my little brother, Sox. We both arrived with a case of demodectic mange (the non-contagious type of mange) but we are both currently undergoing treatment and doing much better! As soon as my skin has cleared up I will be spayed and ready for adoption. I currently live in a foster home with 4 other dogs and 3 cats. I love playing with my foster siblings and I have a lot of energy! I also do well with the cats, I like to try playing with them but for some reason they do not want to play with me. I am also your typical “velcro boxer” and love to be around my humans all the time! I am potty/crate trained and I would do great in a home with another dog and plenty of room to exercise! Won’t you consider letting me join your family?

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, I’m Happy! I was named in the shelter by the ladies who helped me to find ABR, because I was such a happy boy. I came to ABR with some tumors & heartworms. My foster mom has been taking care of me for the last couple of months, while my tumors were mast cell, they were completely removed. I also had treatment for those yucky worms! Now, my foster mom says that I am healthy enough to start to look for a forever home!! YAY!!! I can’t WAIT to find a place of my own with some fur siblings! I love to play with my fur foster brother and fur foster sisters all the time. We can get a little crazy but when I am not playing I will look up at you with my pretty, big caramel colored eyes ready to cuddle up and take lots of hugs, kisses and pets from humans of any size. I’m a smart boy too!! I am good about going in my crate, especially if that is where I am going to get fed. But just so you know, I may not always STAY in my crate. It’s a great trick to show up at the front door to greet my foster mom when she knows I was in my crate when she left. I tried to tell her it’s just that I don’t really need a crate - I haven’t torn anything up when I get out (though I did have an accident before, oops!). My foster home doesn’t have a fenced in yard, so I go for potty breaks on leash, and I love to sit outside & sun my bum. I also know how to take nice walks on leash too. When I encounter other dogs on walks I just give them a pleasant nod & go about enjoying the time with my people. My foster mom says that with liking dogs, cats, adults and kids, I should be able to spend the rest of my life being loved by a family who wants a dog that has everything to offer. If you are looking for a dog that can easily fit in to any environment please mention HAPPY on your application! I look forward to meeting all of you & you can see for yourselves what a happy boy I am!

Hi! My name is Bowser. I am a handsome brindle boy who is roughly 2 years old. I come from a mysterious past and was found roaming the streets with my brother, Seymour. We escaped from the backyard where we were left to fend for ourselves and hoped for a better life. Over the past several months, we have had it really nice; however my brother and I miss going outside where we can run and play. I enjoy chasing squirrels and love to discover new critters. I am energetic, smart and curious. I listen when asked to sit or stay; though I am still pretty young and need to learn a few more manners. I am a sweet dog and appreciate my new life. I do not take anything for granted, and would be privileged to have a new family to care for me.

Hey there! My name is Seymour. I am a cute, spunky white boxer with a face that will melt your heart. My brother, Bowser and I haven't always had the best life. We were picked up on the side of the road after getting loose from the yard where we were kept. We were someone's protection, rather than best friend and wished for more one day. Fortunately, we ended up in a kind home and have been taken great care of, it’s just that we really miss getting to run, jump, box, and play outdoors most of the day. We get to go on long walks in the city, but we still feel like we are incomplete without having a large, fenced-in area to enjoy. I am a funny, clever boy that makes everyone smile. I am affectionate and loving, and promise I would make you and your family very happy.

My name is Calvin and even though I am new to ABR, I’ve settled right in to my foster home; it’s sure better than animal control and animal control is way better than being on the streets.

I’m a good boy and get along well with the large pack at my foster home, I really like having playmates. We run, play tug-o-war and keep away and just have the best time. I don’t particularly like getting in the crate but a treat convinces me to go in and settle down. I know it’s proper to go outside to do my business and I’m trying my best to get that perfected, I only had 2 accidents and that was when I first got here. I had a small growth on top of my head but Mom has already taken me to the vet to get it removed and my incision is healing nicely. The biopsy results are in and the know on my head was just a cyst.

That’s about all for now. Mom will update as she gets to know me better. If you think you may be interested in adding me to your family, mention Calvin on your application or if you’re already approved, call the Adoption Coordinator and let her know.

Tawny is the most loving, gentle, playful little girl you could ever imagine. She is only about a year old, so she has a lot of puppy still in her. She loves to play hard with her foster sister Bindi and has the almost limitless energy you'd expect from a puppy, but she still runs to her human if things get a little rough or if she gets confused. She still says 'Hold me!' a lot if the world gets a little big, but she's the first to go investigate anything that might be interesting - or edible! She is also a very calm girl when she isn't actively playing, and just loves to lay against you if you sit down long enough. She is a little confused about the whole housetraining thing, but that seems to be more because her foster sister is in a diaper (partial paralysis) and since she copies Bindi in everything she does. She's just confused - she will pick it up quickly with structure, because she is a super smart girl! She gets along with everybody, and has a low to medium prey drive. Mostly she is just the most gentle boxer she could be and doesn't want to hurt anything. She is mildly interested in the cat but really, that's because the cat eats the most interesting food - not because she really cares one way or another about the cat. She goes in the crate with a little nudging, and doesn't cry. Actually, though she does like to bark, Tawny almost never cries. Her tail is usually going a mile a minute, and she's constantly ready for the next wonderful thing that's going to happen! She's the eternal optimist, and such a happy little girl. Tawny would do well almost anywhere she went, but she does really, really love having a foster sister to play with so she would probably be happier in a house with other fur sisters or brothers. Tawny is a little girl - about 35 pounds now. She has been spayed and chipped and is ready to find her forever home!

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?

Hi, my name is Dutch. My foster mom tells me every day what a sweet, handsome boy I am! I've been living outside for the last year and a half, so I'm a little hesitant about meeting new people, but once you get to know me, I'm as happy as can be! I will need someone who is patient and can give me lots of love and attention. I get along with other friendly dogs, but not cats or other small animals. I will need some training and patience -- but my foster mom says I have a lot of potential! I am crate trained and house trained, though I do have separation anxiety so I must be crated when you're not at home, and I would do best with an owner who is home most of the time. I prefer women, though I am getting more comfortable with the male-humans my foster mom has introduced me to. I do pretty well in car rides, and I know how to "sit" and "shake". I bond very quickly with my caretaker and want to be wherever they are! And I LOVE walks! I get so excited when my foster mom gets my leash out! I'm also a great guard dog, and I will let you know if someone is on the property. My favorite way to show you I like you is to lick your face and give you lots of kisses. All I want is to have a forever home as an inside dog, with a family that will love me just as much as I love them!

Hello my name is Gus. I am a big teddy-bear of a dog. I love my humans! I just want to be around you and be your companion at all times. I am super easy going and laid back. If you want a couch potato while relaxing in your home I am your boy. I would enjoy a family that has kids that will play with me and love on me. Or I would enjoy somebody who is home often as I get lonely without companionship. I love to wake you up every morning at 6:30am for a good walk and bathroom break. I am healthy as can be and I have a good appetite and no illnesses. I am ready to go right now to a loving forever home. I promise to bring joy to your home. (From foster): I will be sad to see Gus go. He is such a good dog and will be a guardian and friend to whoever will love him. He was an owner surrender because the long work hours left Gus home for 12 hours a day by himself. This dog hasn't barked once in the 2 weeks I've had him. He likes to go for walks and smell all kinds of new stuff. I take him out morning and night for exercise and once in the middle of the day for bathroom break. He is not good with cats or small dogs. He will have to meet any existing dogs (hopefully large breed) to see if they are compatible. He would love being the only dog so he can get all the attention! He is completely house-broken and requires no training. He loves for you to take treats with you while exercising also. He loves car rides and besides a little slobber once in a while he is a very low maintenance boy. This dog couldn't be better for a home wanting to add a beautiful companion. He is up to date on all vet needs and he will be your best friend in about 2 days from the time you adopt him. If you give this dog a loving forever home I promise he will give back ten-fold.

And I ended up in Georgia! Hi! My name is Journey and what a journey I have had! I came to ABR from South Carolina and had with severe mange. Through lots of care from my foster moms, I am now mange free and ready for my fur-ever home! I am a sweet girl, I love cuddling on the couch and I give the sweetest boxer kisses. I love being with my family so much that I stress when my foster family or my fur buddies are away from me. I will try to escape and look for them if I am alone and, so I really need a family who is around a lot. I can't help it! It just makes me scared to be alone. I adore car rides so you can even take me with you to different places! I get along with my size or larger dogs, but I am not very fond of most cats and small dogs because they look like toys so I will try to chase them. Being alone in a crate is not an option unless I am in with a friend. I mean, if you were in a cage, wouldn't you try to escape too? I would do best with someone who is home full-time and I have a fur buddy to keep me company. If you think you can love me as much as I love you, please be sure to put "Journey" on your application.

Felix the Frail has been in foster care since May 30th. Having lived at the end of a wire tether with no food or water, he was finally turned over to ABR to begin the first day of the rest of his life! He was in pretty rough shape upon first encounter, so his foster mom has been working hard to get him healthy!

Felix the Fatty, as he’s now lovingly called, is coming into his own precious self. He is a very loving, 80 pound lap dog! He is extremely eager to please his humans, pays little attention to the cat and our dogs, is completely housebroken, and has displayed absolutely no food or separation issues. Felix the Fearless came to ABR intact and his manners around other males needs improvement. He has assured me he’s working on that! He also arrived with all of the conditions that accompany that level of neglect. His improving health will be evaluated for neuter and heartworm treatment as soon feasible.

Felix the Fabulous is one fabulous fella who deserves to have his own pack of humans to love and be loved on. Whoever adopts him will have a sweet companion for many, many happy years ahead!

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.

Hi there! My name is Sooki. You may have noticed I am missing an eye, but that doesn't make me any less of a great dog. The story goes something like this: some nice people at a salon found me after I was hit by a car and took me to the vet to get help. Unfortunately, they were not able to save my right eye. Even though I am blind on one side, I have adjusted very well and don't seem to startle too easily. Even though they were able to track down my owners, sadly they didn't want to take me back. I've recently gone into a new foster home because my previous foster family was in the process of moving and it was very stressful for me. I love going on walks and do so at a very nice pace in my Easy Walk Harness. I have a very young Boxer sister at my current home and I love playing with her. I'm an alpha female so once I let her know who is boss, it's been nothing but play, play, play. In my previous home I loved playing with my foster skin brothers and sisters and would even sleep with them at night. I’m potty trained, crate trained and know commands like sit, stay, shake, and up. My new foster mom doesn't use "up" with me because she has a "no doggies in the bed rule". However, I used to be invited "up" to sleep at night with my previous foster's kids which was great! I would do just fine with a submissive dog similar to my size where I can play rough and I can be the boss. Recently I've been showing just how good of a guard dog I can be. I'll bark at any strangers in front of the house but I'm pretty good at stopping once my foster mom breaks my concentration. One funny tidbit about me is that when I get really excited I jump straight up and down like I'm on a trampoline. The higher I jump, the more I make my foster mom laugh. I am a silly Boxer after all :) If I sound like the dog for you, please mention Sooki on your application.

My name is Betsy and I am a sweet, loveable girl who wants nothing more than to be close to my human friends and share my boxer kisses. I used to have a family, but they fell into hard times. They couldn’t afford to take care of me anymore and had to take me to the shelter.  That’s when my friends at Atlanta Boxer Rescue stepped in.  I have this funny looking growth on my face and these yucky things called heartworms. Those will be taken care of soon and I will be ready to move into my fur-ever home. I am adjusting nicely in my foster home and my foster family keeps saying they are amazed at how calm I am. That’s not to say that I don’t love greeting new friends with a boxer wiggle and a big slobbery kiss. However, once I settle in, it’s hard to get me to move from my comfy dog bed.   I am crate trained, potty trained and have never chewed on anything, but dog food. My favorite hobbies include sleeping, eating, going for car rides, and taking a short walk around the block.  I don’t mind cats and used to live with another dog companion! Even though I miss him, I am currently enjoying being the only dog while I adjust to my new life in Atlanta. I grew up a country girl and am not used to the sounds and smells of the city.  I am learning what to do when dogs bark at me and when cars drive by me on my walks.  If you are looking for a calm, cool, and collected girl full of boxer kisses mention BETSY on your application.
