My name is Tucker and I am just about the most adorable boy you will ever meet.  For whatever reason I ended up in animal control and was so scared.  Thank goodness Atlanta Boxer Rescue came to my rescue.  I’m now in my foster home and am having a great time playing with the other boxers here. I am a pretty submissive boy and try my best not to get into anyone’s personal space.  I know to get in my crate when it’s bedtime and I only do my “business” outside. We’re still not sure about what vetting I might need and I’ve got to be tested for those nasty heartworms, but as soon as all this is taken care of, I will be looking for my forever home.  Mom will update you soon. Thanks for reading my profile and if you think I might be a good fit for your home, mention me on your application.  If you’re already approved, let our Adoption Coordinator know you are interested in me.

Hi there, my name is Pearl, but you can call me anything you want because I can't hear you! My foster parents say I am a very sweet and docile girl. I love to give gentle kisses and cuddle with my people and fur siblings. I will stick right by your side and lean on you so I know where you are going. I walk well on a leash and only potty outside. I am still learning some doggie manners, and would do well in a house with a laid back fur sibling. My foster parents are working on a few hand signals with me, I have almost mastered "Sit"! I still have some more to learn, but have made a ton of progress. I like to explore outside and will run to explore the neighborhood if I see an open door! My foster parents say I have a bit more weight to put on, but then I will be ready for my forever home! If I sound like the perfect girl for you, mention me on your application!

Female

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!

Hey there! My name is Walker. I recently came to ABR and boy am I glad I did. My foster mommy thinks I wasn't treated very nice before ABR saved me. However, I am on to greener pastures and my foster mom says I'm blossoming. I'm a very mild mannered boy who likes to play with my foster fur sisters, fetch, and go on long walks. I also really enjoy lounging around cuddling next to you. I am potty trained, learning basic commands and learning about the crate. I'm not too fond of the crate but with some time and training I will get used to it. If you are looking for a calm, sweet boxer boy, mention me, Walker, on your application.

Hi! My name is Bernard! I'd like to introduce you to myself and my sister, Bianca - she is deaf so I get to do the talking. We are so happy to be in foster care with our super fun fur sisters. I don't know if we enjoy having a family or just being inside a warm home more. We were rescued from our previous life as lawn ornaments when we were taken to the animal shelter and ABR swooped in and gave us the lives every dog deserves! We have been treated for our heart worms and are now putting on muscle weight. We are quickly learning the ins and outs of crate training, housebreaking and leash walking. We have also learned to dance! I hear the music and sister sees all of dancing and joins in. Our favorite song is Happy! The mom says sister is like a bunny because she wiggles her nose and hops and my mouth is so big I look like a muppet with long, gangly moose legs! Please consider adopting Bernard & Bianca as we are a matched set!! Have a blessed day!!!

Daisy is a white female boxer who is a true snuggle bug with an incredible personality. She makes us laugh everyday. She loves to be cuddled and take long walks. She also enjoys playing soccer and fetch while running on our agility field. Daisy knows how to sit, lie down, stay and go to her bed. She walks very nicely on her lead and, while at one time she was reactive to other dogs during walks, she has overcome this challenge. She is very picky about who she will play with and would prefer to be an only dog. However, she will make some lucky person an amazing dog!

Lilly

April

ABR rescued Lilly from a rural animal control. Lilly came in very underweight and with a limp. She is working on becoming healthy enough for FHO surgery for her dislocated hip bone and heart worm treatment. Lilly has very quickly she learned the word kennel, only potties outside, and walks great on a leash. Right now she only has enough energy to walk about a block and back home before tiring out, but she gaining stamina. Due to her hip issues we have not tested commands like sit or down because of her comfort level. However, with how quickly she learned leash manners and the kennel command, training other commands could be a snap when she has recovered from surgery. In the short time in her foster home she has become more rested and her personality is slowly emerging. Each day she is becoming more curious and she loves attention. If she sounds like she would make great addition, please mention her on your application.

Barkley

Male

April

Hello my name is Barkley (a.k.a. Charlie Bean) I was picked up by the town judge's daughter and dropped off at Animal Control. Barkley can't tell his story but it is obvious he was traumatized at some point. It seems as though Barkley was able to roam the home as he enjoys being indoors more than outdoors. After he is done doing his business he quickly wants to come back inside. Barkley does not like the crate and will attempt his hardest to get free! He would do well with someone at home with him during the day. He likes to stay occupied (dog toy/bone/kong). If not occupied, he will pace and try to find something to keep him occupied. At times, Barkley has been observed as too intense with toys and even bones but we are working on sharing. The vet said he is between 6-8 years old but his energy is younger than this. Barkley gets very stressed when his people are out of his sight. As he settles in and becomes secure, the may improve. Barkley has been observed as protective and loyal to his people and any unusual activity he will let you know about. He does well with children. My young daughter is very curious and has her own way of playing with him. He is so patient with her. We are currently working on his house manners such as: jumping on couch, feet on table in kitchen and he is a pretty quick learner. He sits for snacks and treats usually without having to be asked. He love walks and does well on a leash. Car rides are his favorite!!

Hi my name is Zander! I came from a stressful home, but all that’s gone now that ABR rescued me! I am a sweet young boy with tons of energy! I love to play with my foster fur brother – he’s a big boy that will jump and box with me! I’m a little too curious with the kitty cats, so it would be best if my forever home didn’t have any of those to tempt me. I just LOVE to play and romp around the yard. One of my FAVORITE things is to go for walks with my foster mom and fur brother. We have SO much fun exploring and checking out all my neighborhood friends. I’m learning to walk well on the leash, with this thing called an easy walk harness. It’s much more comfortable than walking with a collar, so I don’t mind. My foster mom says I’d probably do best in a home with older kids, just because I’m a big boy and love to play. I am SUPER eager to please and have even learned how to sit! I would love to find a forever family who could teach me more tricks and take me for long walks. Could that be you? If I sound like a perfect fit for you, please mention me, Zander, on your application!

JJ

Hi my name is JJ! My foster mom calls me Jaybird, because she says I have a crooked little beak! I'm little, but I'm spunky! I am crate trained and house trained, and even know a few tricks! Just offer me a treat to see sit, down, shake and come! I am having a blast in my foster home with my foster fur siblings. I love everyone I meet and would love nothing more than to curl up in your lap every night. I have to admit I am a typical pesky little sister to my fur siblings. My foster mom doesn't think I was socialized much, so she is trying to teach me how to play nicely with other dogs. We all get along just fine and even snuggle, but I'm not so sure I want to play with them or share my toys. I get possessive with my toys, and will try to engage my foster siblings when they get too close. They just yell at me and keep walking. I'm trying to learn that they aren't trying to steal my stuff, that sometimes they want to just play tug-o-war with me like my foster mom does. I'm also learning to walk on a leash without pulling - my foster mom is using this thing called an easy walk harness and it helps a lot! I love to chase squirrels and birds in the yard, and would really love a yard of my own. I'm also a barker, and will let you know if someone is coming up to the house! My foster mom tells me I don't have to notify her every time someone drives by, but I'm not sure I agree with her yet! Can I snuggle up in your lap? If I might be the right little girl for you, mention JJ on your application!

Chopper

~5+ Years

Male

~56 lbs

Treated

Now

Chopper is a hugger and hand shaker who makes human friends easily. He’s loveable, laid back, playful, brave and confident. Now that he is healthy and safe, he can enjoy the necessities of life…squeaky toys and exercise. He is always well-behaved in the house: not destructive or mischievous, sometimes entertains himself with a squeaky toy, does well in the crate and likely can be trusted to be left out. Chopper is not the most photogenic but he's still cute and younger than the image implies. Don’t be fooled! He’s strong, quick, appropriately energetic, always ready to go, loves to play, and LOVES to box! In the yard, he bounces and runs with an air of new found freedom; likely how he feels considering how much recovery/bed rest he’s had. Heartworms gone and battle wounds healed, he’s a new dog now. Chopper is easy to please wanting nothing more than just to hang out and be near you--an excellent TV watching buddy!
