Meet Locke. This gentle giant will steal your heart! He came to ABR after being found as a stray and in rough shape. When he came to ABR he had an open leg wound, broken teeth, swollen gums and was very lethargic but none of this took away from how sweet he was! Once in ABR care, he was taken immediately to the vet to get his vitals checked and although in bad shape he was very stable. He went into his foster home and shortly began heartworm treatment and had multiple skin graphs to repair the skin tissue on his leg. He is now healthy and has completed his heartworm treatment and his leg is almost completely healed! He is house broken, crate trained and very mellow. Sometimes he does not like going out in the rain, but it just takes a little persuading. He can be playful if you want to be playful or he will chill when you want to chill. Right now he has a crazy hyper foster fur brother who is always trying to get him to play; sometimes he will, sometimes he will just lay down, but he is very tolerant. He would be a good fit for someone with or without other dogs. He has been around a handful of kids and has one human foster brother who is just a baby. He is very gentle around him and only tries to give him kisses any chance he gets. He has come in contact with one cat at the vet office and didn't show any interest in her or the other dogs in the waiting room. He is quiet and calm; his foster parents haven't even heard him bark. He does seem to get anxious when he hears buzzers, like the microwave, dishwasher, baby toys beeping and he will howl at them. We think he is still trying to figure out life inside of a home but his foster brother helps him know that it's all ok. If you think this gentle soul sounds like your kind of guy, then just mention Locke on your application or if you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you want to meet Locke!

Mack's my name and chillin's my game! My foster family said I'm a pretty laid back dude that's a little on the smaller side for boxers. I was so happy to get out of the shelter and come to a nice comfy foster home, I just love being in the house. I hear I'm pretty "easy peasy" and such a great house guest. I love all children, I'm currently living with 4 ranging from 8-12 but I have also been around the little ones and did just great! There's not a person I've met that I don't like, I love people and attention.....ssshhhh don't tell anyone but my foster dad is my favorite! I am crate trained but I'm not in there for long periods since my foster mom is a stay at home mom, how lucky am I!! I am also house trained but because I am so quiet, sometimes my foster mom doesn't see me waiting by the door and I have had an accident, maybe I could learn to ring a bell in my new home, who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks! I do well with my foster fur siblings (female & male), but sometimes they can be a little too much with their rough housing, I would probably prefer a home with fur-siblings with a similar personality to mine or being the only fur-kid doesn't sound so bad either. I love hanging outside with my foster family and watching the kids play. I just recently had knee surgery and recovering well, I can't wait to go for walks and chase a ball or two. Once I heal, I will be available for adoption and I hope I find a great match. If you're looking for a laid back guy who goes with the flow, then mention Mack on your application. If you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you want to meet me!

Meet Trinity, a very sweet and playful girl! Trinity has been in her foster home for a couple of weeks now and settling in well. In Trinity's past, she was use to being outside however has quickly become accustomed to the lap of luxury of being an inside pet! She is a smart girl who has already learned to sit and ring the chimes when she wants to go outside. Trinity walks well on a leash and loves to be outside! She enjoys entertaining herself with lots of toys that her foster family have spoiled her with but also enjoys the company of other fur-friends (no cats please). Trinity lived in a home with 6 other dogs and 4 children ranging in ages 2 - 11 years old. She loves to snuggle with her foster family every chance she gets and would prefer a home that would allow her on the bed/furniture. She is a quiet girl that doesn't bark much and is more on the laid back side. Trinity is not fond of the crate, so we hope there is a family that is willing to work with her on giving her free roam of the house. An ideal home for Trinity would be one that has a stay at home/work from mom or dad, another fur-sibling(s) to play with and a fenced in backyard so she can enjoy running around and hanging outside with her new family. Trinity sounds like a dream to you, then just mention her on your application. If you are already approved, then just let the adoption coordinator know you would like to meet Trinity.

Meet Opie! He's a little guy with a big personality! Opie did not have the best life before coming to ABR, but you would never know by his loving and playful nature. Opie is a smaller boxer and still needs to gain a few more pounds to reach his ideal weight. He loves the children in his current foster home, ranging in ages 9-12. He hasn't met a person or toy he doesn't like, this little guy loves to play! His foster mom says he loves his crate and appears to be house and crate trained. Opie has not been dog tested with ABR yet, but the shelter said he was kenneled with other dogs and did well. He also saw a few cats at the vets office and did not show any interest, so he may be ok with dog savvy cats. Opie is still settling in to his new foster home and will be neutered soon and available for adoption. If you are interested in meeting Opie, just mention his name on your application or if you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator! This little nugget won't last long!

Bella is mama to ABR's newest litter of pups. She was found as a stray with ABR foster, Ava. She is a very sweet girl who wants nothing more than to be someone's baby. Bella is a little timid on a leash, but walks well on leash. Bella has done well around the dogs she has met. Because she spends the majority of her time with the puppies and cannot be spayed at this time, we are still assessing how she does with other dogs. Bella loves all people and has never met a stranger. She would love nothing more than a home where she can be loved on and cuddled with. If you have a lot of love to give, ask for Bella on your application!

So my foster mommy said she is not going to go on and on about how great and wonderful I am and my special story because all people are going to see is my CUTE ADORABLE MUG and miss the IMPORTANT stuff. She said I need a very special home with a family that is dedicated and committed to working with me and help me get the training I need. She says I am the PERFECT dog with a few minor quirks that can be quickly remedied/managed with the right home. So lets get straight to what I am looking for:

I know it may seem that I require alot, however my foster mommy tells me that these concerns are common with many dog. She also said these special requests are non-negotiable and it will just take a special, patient family that is committed to helping me. I am a very smart boy and a pleaser. I know several basic commands; sit, stay, lay down, shake and I listen very well. I sit nicely before every meal and I take treats very gently, no food aggression issues with people or dogs. I am your typical goofy, full of life boxer! I am great with kids and I love to play fetch...I haven't figured out release...but I am working on that. My foster mommy is always telling me that I am an amazing pup and would make a great addition to any family, but I am looking for THAT one special family where I can finally feel at peace and at home. Are you that ONE?

Hi my name is Louie! I know what you are thinking, "Where does he get his hair done?". Well it may be hard to believe, but it's natural! I'm new here to ABR and had a little bit of a rough start. I got to spend my first night with my foster mom, but then the next 2 I had to spend in the hospital due to a bad case of pneumonia, but I'm getting better every day! My foster mom has given me lots of toys to keep me busy, but my favorite by far is any toy I can play tug of war with. I enjoy chasing toys and going for short walks too. I am missing my right front leg, but that does not slow me down much because I am still able to run and use stairs. I love hanging out with my foster mom, playing tug or war, or just lying in the grass. I am potty-trained, know how to sit and stay, and very loving. I do not enjoy the crate and do well having free roam while my foster mom is away. I jump during playtime sometimes so I may not be best for younger children. I am still unfortunately trying to get over this pneumonia so I need to have another month of rest before I can go through my heartworm treatment and be neutered. If you think I would fit in with your family mention me on your application!

Meet Duke! This sweet boy was very scared and afraid of everything when he was at the shelter. It took a little time, but since being in his foster home, he was able to feel safe and start to show more of his winning personality! His foster family said he is very loving, silly and one of the sweetest fosters they've had. Duke is a gentle boy and who listens well, and shows no food or toy aggression. He loves being with his people, giving soft kisses and playing fetch. His foster family tells us he is house and crate trained but he may also be fine with free roam of the house, he is not destructive and has been a perfect house guest. Duke is a young active boy and would love to have a big fenced in yard to run and play in with his new family. Duke has not been too keen on having foster fur brothers so we feel he needs to be the only pet in the home for now and a home with older children would be ideal. Duke is hoping to find his new family soon so hurry and mention him on your application. If you are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator know you want to meet Duke!

Meet Robinson affectionately called Robbie by all his friends. First, let me just tell you that will never meet a sweeter pup than Robbie. This sweet boy has never lost his spirit, even with all that he's gone through. He came to ABR after being struck by a car and was found on the side of the road. When they contacted us to see if we could help we knew he would need a lot of medical attention and a long recovery ahead of him; not only had he been hit by a car but he was also heartworm positive and blind. Robbie went immediately to one of our vets to undergo orthopedic surgery to help save his leg. They wanted to do everything they could to avoid amputation of his leg so he would not have an additional challenge with already being blind. Robbie remained strong and full of life even for a dog in the shape and pain he was in. He has been doing great since the surgery and recently started his heartworm treatment. Robbie still has one more hurdle to clear once he's off crate rest and he will see an eye specialist to get a better understanding of his vision impairment. When you meet this sweet soul you would never know all that he has been through. He has a wonderful foster mom and a very caring and supportive foster fur sister who helps him get around and show him the ropes. He has adjusted well in his foster home and has made so many new friends, he especially loves the little ones. He's a very kind and gentle boy who is house and crate trained. Robbie would do best in a home with someone who is home often, maybe a retiree, stay / work from home family. Someone who would take him on walks, which he loves and a fenced in backyard where he could roam and explore safely. His foster mom thinks he would do well in a quite home with limited stairs, kids would be fine as long as they understand not to run up to Robbie and can help him feel safe. He would do well in a home with another well mannered / mellow fur-sibling who can help him navigate in his new environment, he is small dog friendly and possible ok with cats, although he hasn't met one yet. His ideal family would be patient and pro-active in learning to work with a dog with his specific needs, although he has proven to adjust well. Robbie is on his way to a clean bill of health and is anxiously awaiting to meet his new family. If you are interested in meeting this handsome guy, just mention him on your application or if you already approved, just email our adoption coordinator.

Meet Foxy. A senior female boxer who has a lot of life left to live! This cuddle bug was an owner surrender. She appears to have been overbred and her owner could no longer handle taking care of her. She has a very sweet and gentle playfulness about her. She actually did a happy dance when she came home from the shelter! She loves to give kisses and will gently hop up on your lap to give you hugs. She shows no food aggression or issues with handling. She does bark at other dogs, however, she did have a small yorkie sibling. This sweet girl will melt your heart.

Introducing Snoop and Snow Boy - the gentle giants who will steal your heart! These handsome boys are brothers with an unbreakable bond. They have been together since they were puppies and will need to be adopted together. Snoop and Snow Boy came to ABR as owner surrenders due to their family falling on hard times. The family wanted what was best for their boys and reached out to ABR. Snoop and Snow Boy have always been outdoor dogs, but they are adjusting well to their new cozy indoor way of life. They are calm in the house and just want to be near their people and each other. They love getting pets, giving sloppy kisses, playing with the same toy and taking naps together. These sweet boys are a little timid when meeting new people, but they have quickly warmed up to everyone they've met - kids and adults. Snoop is the more confident and easy going of the two, while Snow Boy is more reserved and apprehensive. These boys are great companions and good listeners. They are house trained, crate trained, and enjoy going for rides in the car. They are not too fond of cats and would probably do best as the only dogs in the house. If these big boys sound like the perfect fit for your family, mention Snoop and Snow Boy 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 10 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?
