Major is such a big goofy love. He's full of energy and loves to play. He knows his basic commands and will do anything for a treat. He loves long walks and tug-o-war. He's best with super duty toys as he loves to chew! He loves his human fosters (8, 6 and 4) and his furry fosters (senior female and young adult male). He ignores the cat, too. He's crate and house trained. Major does have a mild heart defect, which he was born with and is treated with daily medication. It is recommended he see a specialist yearly to monitor his heart. Once he's neutered, Major will be ready to share all his love with his forever family.

Lucie is a pint-sized ball of puppy energy! She's a super sweet girl and loves attention. She's very smart, learns fast, and listens well, but needs an owner committed to working with her on her manners. She is house trained and crate trained and loves to sleep late in the mornings! Her ideal housemate would take her for long walks or runs daily and be a very involved parent that is willing to take her to school for a basic obedience class and then possibly some advancing training like agility or nosework for additional bonding with her new person. She has already learned sit and will wait patiently while you fix her dinner or get her leash on or off. She is learning to walk on leash nicely and would love someone that will continue her daily walks. Mention Lucy on your application if you are interested in meeting her!

March

Hooch has had a rough month getting through his gunshot injury (see Infirmary page), but he is back on his feet now and looking for his forever home! He is a timid boy and approaches everything with caution, but once he warms up to you, he is all love! He is housebroken, listens well and will look to his owner to see what to do. He is not a fan of dogs so far, but he may come around with time. He is looking for a strong owner that can teach him the rules of the house and get him out to meet people and see new things to teach him about the world around him. He would prefer to be the only thing on four legs in the house, but otherwise, Hooch is just a big lug in need of some good lovin'! If he sounds like the guy for you, contact your adoption coordinator or apply online to learn more about him!

Pending

Our handsome boy Bender has been in a special training program for the last few weeks. Bender has some issues with reactivity around other dogs, especially when on leash. ABR has had a trainer working with him one-on-one to set him up for success in a future forever home. Bender's time in the overnight training program is coming to an end, and we need a special foster home to help him build on his solid foundation!

We are looking for a foster and/or adopter who has dog experience, but currently does not have other dogs in the home. While Bender may be able to coexist with other dogs eventually, he isn't ready for that quite yet. Bender is house trained and crate trained, and he would do best in a home where he isn't left for more than 2-3 hours at a time. Bender LOVES his people, and only wants to please them!

Bender also does well with children of all ages, though we would prefer he be placed in a home with older children while he continues his training. He is SUCH a smart cookie, and is thrilled when asked to show off his tricks. Bender loves playing fetch, keep away and tug of war! He does not show any food/toy aggression and loves his toys. He also loves learning with treats, and he takes them very gently.

Everyone who meets Bender falls instantly in love with his big personality! He is a favorite around here, and we are hoping the right person sees this to help us continue his progress!

Rocket

~7 Years

Male

Natural / Docked

Meet Rocket. Rocket is what most refer to as a pocket Boxer…He’s a little guy. He makes up for his size in personality though.

He is very mild mannered and has never met a person he didn’t like. He loves snuggling with his people, snoozing in the sun, and getting rubs from whomever is handing them out.

He is house trained and has not had a single accident in the house. He is not food or toy aggressive. He still needs to put on a little weight, but he will be on the smaller side for a boxer even after he gains a little. He’s still an energetic guy and runs around in the back yard like a crazy dog when he gets excited.

He has not done very well with our three dogs and may need to be an only dog. The last couple of interactions we had were better than previous ones, so with a slow introduction, it may be possible to have him in a house with other dogs. We do not know how he is with cats.

Rocket is a very sweet boy. He’s not excitable and normally has a very calm demeanor. He does get excited when you get home and his little butt wiggles all over the place. He’ll make someone who is looking for a dog that’s beyond the puppy phase a very good companion.

Hi everyone! My name is Lola! I just arrived in my foster home this week, and I'm really settling in! My foster mom says I am super sweet, and very laid back. I am crate trained and house broken, and get along with other dogs. I do have these things called heartworms, so I will need treatment before I'm ready to find my forever home. Keep an eye out for more updates on me as I settle in!

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?
