Hi everyone - my name is Belle, you may remember me as the scared little girl that wouldn't get out of the car. I am hoping for a better 2018 than 2017. You see, my world was turned upside down when my daddy (who was an older gentleman) fell ill and passed away. He was all I had ever known. He didn't have friends come over and we didn't leave the house very much. You could say I was his co-pilot in life. I thought it was my job to protect him. I was taken from my only home and placed in a loud scary place. But this rescue group came to my rescue and I have been living in a foster home for several weeks. This foster home has a mom and dad. I had never had a mom in my house. But this foster mom takes care of me and treats me like her baby. She also lets me run around the house because I don't have accidents. I am learning about a crate they call my space but would prefer calling my bed in the middle of the den my space. I'm still kind of nervous and scared about my new life, the vet thought some medication would help me settle in better, but I will hopefully be weaned off once in my permanent home. I am enjoying a low key, quiet house which is best for me. My foster mom has shown me how much fun a short walk can be. There is so much I missed out on because my daddy was sick for so long, ever since I can remember. I walk well on a leash but also love to stand outside and just listen and smell everything. I am learning to chew on bones and play with toys in my foster home. I am an only fur-child in my foster home but I had a small fur sibling when I lived with my daddy, he found a home already. I also met a couple of boy dogs at the vet that could have been my new friends had I stayed longer, so I think I may be ok with another fur-companion or fine as an only dog.

I was just used to a one person house without much going on in our small world, so I'm still learning a lot. My daddy taught me to sit, shake and now I have learned the word "wait", my foster mommy says I am very smart and catch on quickly. I could use a little more training like not jumping and with my socialization. I need someone that can help me build confidence in my everyday life and in return I will shower you with happy kisses and love. A home with a fenced in yard and a patient loving family is all I want…I hope that's not asking too much. If you feel that I am the girl you have been waiting for and have what I need to make 2018 and beyond the best yet, then mention me on your application. If you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you would love to meet Belle!

Doggato is a very sweet and loving boy. He is new to the rescue and recovering from "Boxer Colitis". He is feeling better and starting to gain some much needed weight! This sweet boy is showing more of his playful personality and does great with his foster fur siblings. He is a very smart pup and has already learned how to use the doggy door in a matter of days. Doggato appears to be house and crated trained although he does need a little encouragement getting into his crate, but gladly goes in for a treat and does well crated next to his fur-siblings. He would do well in a home with another friendly pup and kids, but probably not small toddlers as he is very wiggly and may knock them down by accident. He is your typical energetic, goofy boxer who still needs a little work on his puppy manners but once he settles in his furever home and a little TLC, he will be a rockstar dog! This sweet boy is on the mend and will be available for adoption soon. If you would like to learn more about Doggato or he sounds like what you have been looking for then just mention him on your application. If you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you would like to meet Doggato.

Hi, I'm Zeus! I'm a little shy at first, but once I open up I'll be your best friend forever. I'm a big, sweet senior boy who thinks I can fit in my foster moms lap, I just love snuggles! I do well on the leash, but sometimes I get a little playful and bite it (my foster mom says we're working on breaking that habit) and I am house trained too, I'm also working on crate training but it's not my favorite. I'd much rather have a stay at home mom or dad who will spend their day snuggling and napping with me! I'd do best in a home where I'm the only dog, or with a dog who is younger but not very playful. I would do best with a yard that has a fence so I can run when I get my bursts of energy, but I'd also be okay with parents who can walk me daily. I love to play with all my toys too and I'm very protective of them, I growl when I'm playing with them, but my foster mom says it's okay because that's just how I show love. I'd do best in a home without kids or a home with older kids (7+) who wouldn't try to take my toys, I wouldn't hurt them but my growling may scare them. I do have some health issues, but my foster mom and the vet are working on them to make me feel better. I have arthritis and sometimes it hurts me to get up in the mornings, especially when it's cold. But the nice vet lady gave me medicine and I'm starting to feel like a puppy again!

Biely is a sweet, gentle soul searching for his forever home. This white knight is very playful when engaged, but loves to kick back and relax most of the day. He will show patience with kids and plays well with other dogs. His imperfections are what make him perfect. This young pup is inquisitive as explores the world in silence, Biely was born deaf. The perfect home is a family willing to work with him on basic sign language (hand signals) to communicate. Biely is house trained and does well with free roam. He will need a home that has a fenced backyard and is kept on a leash when out on the town. He would love a home where he is not left for long periods as he loves interacting with his companions. Biely is finishing up his heartworm treatment and will be available soon. If you think he sounds like a perfect fit, then mention him on your application, or if you are already approved,then let the adoption coordinator know you would like to meet Biely.

Hi there, my name is Holly! My foster family gave me my name because I came to ABR during the holidays! I am very well behaved and love to be with people! I am crate trained and house broken. My foster family even lets me stay out of my crate when they leave and I never cause any trouble! Snuggling, taking naps, chewing on bones and playing with tug toys are my favorite things to do! I also love to go on walks and walk nicely on my leash, but sometimes I get excited and think my leash is also a tug toy! My foster family loves that I am a good listener and will stop immediately when they tell me "no". I am such a snuggly girl that I am always looking for the most comfortable place to lay! I prefer to be on the couch or snuggling in a cozy human bed, but am learning what "off" means and will "stay" on my dog bed with a little help from my foster family! ABR rescued me with another Boxer friend from a shelter in North GA and I really loved him! I am good with making new dog friends one-on-one and have shown that I can be comfortable and friendly when I am not overstimulated! When there is a lot going on around me, I don't want to socialize with other dog friends, but this is something I am working on! I love people of all shapes and sizes and am very gentle and motherly! My foster family thinks it's because I was a mama dog and cared for puppies at some point in my life! I have to get rid of these yucky things called heartworms and then I will be ready to join my fur-ever family! If you are looking for a laid back, well mannered dog like me, mention Holly in your Application!

Hello everyone! My name is Ralphie! I am a big love bug who takes a little time to open up, but once I do, I am hooked. I do well with my foster fur-sister and love cuddling with my humans. My foster mom feels I would do well in a home with a friendly fur-sibling or love being the only pet soaking up all the attention. I haven't shown too much activity, I am still recovering from my heartworm treatment but my foster mom thinks I will be a more mellow boxer, she says I am an easy peasy pup. I am house and crate trained and love my soft cuddly toys. I do well with children and I am very gentle. I am halfway through my treatment recovery and will be ready for my forever home just in time for the New Year! if I sound like your kind of dog, then mention me on your application or if you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you would like to meet Ralphie!

Hi everyone, meet Bronx! This sweet boy is full of love and kisses! Bronx is an easy going, fun loving guy. He came to ABR in not so good shape and very underweight, although you would never know by his happy to meet you attitude. He is enjoying the comfort of his new foster home where he is starting to pack on the pounds and getting plenty of TLC. Bronx loves all people and does well with his foster fur sibling. He is a playful boy who wants all the attention! Bronx appears to be house and crate trained, although he doesn't love the crate, he will go in and rest. Bronx has shown no destructive behavior in his foster home, his foster mom says he is a total sweetheart who is very loving and can be a little on the needy side (meaning he will try to get all the love). He does get excited when meeting new people and may jump, but listens well and will "sit" and "down" on command. He walks gently on the leash but will try to get a squirrel any chance he gets, so watch out squirrels! Bronx will be available for adoption once he is neutered. This love bug is looking for a loving home who will spoil him rotten! If you are interested in meeting Bronx, just mention him on your application or if you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and let her know you would love to meet Bronx.

Hey y'all.  This is Zander, with a Z, checking in!  Yes, I am done with the heartworm treatment and getting ready for my forever family to find me!

My foster people say I do not have much confidence.  Well, that is sort of right.  I am laid back guy.  Right now, I do not want anything to change.  Now that things have sort of settled down I need to regain some confidence before I am ready my forever family.  It is good here, but I know my forever family will be great too!

My foster people say I am a 'gentle soul'.  I would agree with that.  I am not sure how I got so worried about everything, but I am.  They are working to help me build back my confidence.  I like things to be sort of quiet.  I like routines.  I love to look out the window.  Sometimes, I will go and chase stuff in the backyard, but just sometimes.  I rarely bark – but I will alert bark at the big brown truck.

I am good in my house.  I use the doggie door and do what I need to do outside in my backyard.  I am starting to play a little, but I really do not want to get in trouble, so I stop playing if it gets too fun. 

I love to see my foster persons come home.  I circle dance and prance.  I am so happy.  I am eating well and gaining weight. I get on splendidly with both my fur sisters. We play and curl up together in the dog bed. We have had no cross words with one another since the day I arrived!

My foster people tried to take me for a walk by myself, but I am not sure about that.  If they take me for a walk with one of my fur-sisters, I am good.  I do not pull on the lead.  I want to do what is right and I stay close to my fur-sister.  But I do not want to go for a walk on my own.

 My foster people have figured out that I need to be with another happy dog all the time.  I know I can do great with an adult family that can help me rebuild by confidence in myself and others.  I have a gentle mouth.  I am respectful of others. I do not like loud noises. I do not jump on people – but I do make myself comfortable on the furniture and the bed.  I resist going in the crate, but once I am in, I just settle down and wait for my freedom. I really do not understand going into the crate because I am a perfect gentleman if left in the house. I have been left in the house free roaming with my fur sisters for full work days and we go in and out the doggie door as we like and keep an eye on everything. We just dance a little harder when one of the non-fur fosters arrives.

If you have a big heart for a gentle soul, are laidback and can help me regain my confidence, then put Zander (with a Z) on your application.

Meet Zeus a new boy to ABR. He is currently settling into his foster home and what we do know so far is that he is a super happy, total sweetheart who loves getting and giving kisses! He loves his crate and has no problem going in. He does have a lot of energy so will need a family who will play with him and take him on walks. A fenced in yard would be great for this guy. He has a full tail and it never stops wagging. It seems Zeus has had minimal training in the past. His foster family is working with him on training, manners, and leash walking, but he will likely still need to continue training in his forever home to be the the best pup he can be. Because he is so energetic and jumpy, as of right now he will probably do best in a home without very small children. As he works on his manners we hope this will change and will update with his progress! He is a little on the smaller side but has a big personality! He's never met a person he doesn't love! Zeus tested positive for heart worms and will be available once he's been treated and medically cleared. If you are interested in Zeus and would love to learn more about him, just mention him on your application or if you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you would like to be added to his list to meet when he is available.

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?

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.

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?
