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 Cocoa Bean, a new gal in our ABR family. She is a gorgeous brindle who came from a neglectful situation and was recently brought to our attention. She is a sweet girl who has finally opened up a little, although initially a little shy and timid. Her foster mom saw her play for the first time yesterday and said she is feeling more at home and showing her boxer spunk and energy, check out her video on our facebook page. Cocoa Bean is currently in a temp foster home and we are hoping to find her perfect family soon. We are not sure how dog/kid friendly she is since there are none in her current foster home, but her foster mom thinks given her past living arrangements with other dogs and also her current demeanor she should be fine with both. She seems to be a well-mannered girl who does not jump up on people and enjoys her snuggles on the couch and bed. We were told she met some kitties at the shelter and when they hissed at her, she was frightened. She may be ok with a dog savvy cat. She appears to be crate trained and house broken, although she has had a few accidents in her foster home when she first arrived. As with all new pets, she will need to be re-introduced to house training until she gets the hang of where to go in her new home and for her new family to learn her signals. She will need a patient family that will allow her the time to come out of her shell and adjust in her new environment. Cocoa Bean is a beautiful girl who would love a taste of the good life! If you think Ms. Cocoa Bean would make a great fit for your family, just mention her on your application or if you are already approved, email our adoption coordinator.

Hi I'm DD and I'm a pint sized boxer, you know one of those "pocket" size ones that everyone thinks is so cute! Right now, I'm still settling into my new foster home, I'm a little scared and unsure of everything. You see I'm a special needs pup because I'm deaf, so it's a little more difficult for me to acclimate as quickly. I've only been here for a few days and there are some other fur-friends that I'm not so sure of. I was an owner surrender to the shelter and they said I was cat and dog friendly and that I liked to "love and lick" on other pets, but I'm not really feeling that right now. My foster mom thinks once I feel more comfortable, things will turn around and my loving personality will come out. I do love people and love to lounge on the couch with you. I'm the sweetest girl and love getting attention and snuggles. I would love to be in a home where I don't have to be crated so much, I'm not a huge fan, but understand it is necessary at times. I am still a young girl and will need a little work on my house training skills, but my foster mom said I have been doing well going outside for potty breaks. The shelter said they were told I could climb/jump the fence, so I will need a home with a 6ft privacy fence, no chain link, or a home with no fence is fine. I would love a family who is willing to work with me and help me "hear" the world around me so I won't be so scared. Please don't be discouraged of my hearing impairment, deaf dogs make great companions and are highly trainable. They make great family pets with the right fit and deaf dogs are great because they are less likely to be distracted by noise and more attentive to their owners. In my previous life, I lived with a 6 year old child and other pets and did great...I was told they just didn't have time for me. I am currently heartworm positive and will need to start treatment before I am available for adoption. My foster mommy said you can go to deafdogsrock.com to learn more about training and living with a deaf dog and she said you can also use this thing called Google to learn more. I am looking forward to meeting all the wonderful families and see who will complete my journey to a furever home. If I sound like a great pup to you, please mention DD on your application, or if you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you would like to meet me when I'm ready!

Hi there, I'm Bruno. I'm new to the rescue, but my mom says I should find a forever home quickly because I'm so easy and sweet! My old family couldn't take care of me anymore so they left me with my foster mom. I will go in the crate for a treat, but mom says I'm ok left in the living room too. I am ok with other pups, large and small, and even cats too! I also like the little humans. I enjoy cuddling, treats, and following my foster mom around the house. Could you be my forever home? I hope so!

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.

Beau is a low energy happy boy that wants to be close for love and attention. You can find a few spots on his neck and back that make him kick start a motorcycle. He is a typical curious boxer that does not seem to have fearful triggers. This boy does not mind the kennel and will go in on command. He is left out without issues, house broken, walks great on a leash, and knows sit. He learns quickly, looks for commands from people, and takes direction well. He is nonreactive with the small and large dogs he has met so far. If Beau sounds like a great fit, then mention him on your application or contact your adoption coordinator.

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 Livingston! I was picked up just roaming around town and in pretty good condition considering. I'm pretty laid back and like to lounge around, but I really enjoy being allowed to roam around outside. I understand that is dangerous so I'm willing to do my roaming either on a leash or in a fenced in backyard-as long as the fence is at least 6ft tall because I do enjoy challenging myself to jump over lower fences. I don't mind being around other dogs or cats and love to give my foster sister smooches all day. I've been working really hard on my manners so I am now house and crate trained. My foster mom says that I am one of the sweetest dogs she has ever met, I'm very gentle, quiet, and have the biggest brown eyes she's ever seen! I would be okay in a house with other pets and any size humans (young and old alike)-where you are is where I want to be, just call me your shadow. I would do best in a home where someone is home most of the day since I do love my humans so much! I think I would make a great companion because I love to go on walks and adventures, but I will also just hang around the house with you too. I would love to meet you and your family if you think we would be a good fit together!!

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?
