Hello Everyone, I'm Quinn! I am a fun-loving petite boxer! I love all people and do well with my foster fur-sibling(s). I have not been tested with cats but I think I may harass them, so a no cat home would be best. I have LOTS of energy and love to play and run around! An active family would be best for me and a fenced in yard to get this playful energy out. I am gentle and do well with kids. I take treats very nicely and have shown no food or toy aggression concerns. I am crate trained, but it's not my favorite place to hang out. I am working on my house training. My foster mom says I'm a smart girl who will catch on quickly, but my new family must be consistent and watch for my signal. I would love a family that will shower me with attention and has another fur-companion for me to play with but my fur-sibling will need to be very tolerant since I'm young and playful and not good at taking hints when they are ready to relax. I am still new and settling in, but I can't wait to find my forever family. I am getting ready to start hearyworm treatment this week, then will be ready to meet you in 6 weeks! If you think we could be a great match, just mention Quinn on your application. Already approved? Just ask the adoption coordinator to add you to my list.

Chico is a beautiful 2-ish year old fawn male that craves human and dog companionship. In his foster home, Chico gets along with two 50 lb dogs and a 27 lb dog. It is also known that he came from a home with a little Chihuahua companion. Chico rarely actually interacts with the other dogs, but seems to enjoy their presence. Chico does not like being left alone, and will try to escape from a fence to get with another dog. Therefore, an adopter would need a substantial fence if Chicco is to be in the yard unsupervised at all.
Chico is a low to medium energy boy. He almost has housetraining mastered, but will need some work refining that. Chico enjoys just lying around his foster home, but will occasionally show his playful side.
If you think Chico would be a good fit for your family, please mention him on your application with Atlanta Boxer Rescue.

I am the amazing Apollo! A six-year-old, 75 pound, hunk of hugs and kisses. I just came to ABR after my owner had to sell the farm I was living on due to health issues. I love to be outside but am house trained and very well behaved. I can sit, drop, shake and lie down on command. I love kids and am pretty good on the leash so even my 11-year old human foster sister can walk me.
I'm also good with other dogs and cats. My foster mom thinks I would do well in a home with other animals and lots of room to roam. But, she says I would probably do just as well alone, I'm just that chilled out. Even though my dog foster brother sets a bad example by jumping on the furniture, I know that's not my place and just relax on the carpet.
I'm happy to be with my humans as much as possible but I don't get overly excited or jump up. I love to eat but don't get aggressive around food or toys. I will need to see an eye specialist due to what looks like an old injury to my left eye, just to make sure everything is ok, but other wise I am a strong, healthy boy.
If you are looking for a chilled out, low maintenance best friend, Apollo is the dog for you. Just fill out an application and mention Apollo. Or, if you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and ask to be added to my list.

Meet Baby! She is as sweet as they come and would love nothing more than to be your "Baby". This girl was found by a good Samaritan after witnessing her being thrown from a truck. Luckily someone was in the right place at the right time! Despite this horrible act, Baby loves people! She loves cuddling and getting lots of attention. Her current foster home has 2 boxers, a male and female, and does well with both. Baby can be a little jealous when attention is being given out (gives a warning snap to her foster fur-sister) so she may do best as the only pet or with an experienced dog owner that understands this behavior and able to work with her. She seems to be very tolerant of energetic pups and despite her jealousy of attention, Baby loves to be the Momma to her foster fur-siblings, cleaning them often, although she is the youngest of them! She has not displayed any food or toy aggression and does well on a leash. We are unsure how she is with cats or small children since her foster family do not have either in the home. Baby is house trained and crate trained and has not shown any destructive behavior in her foster home, she has been a perfect house guest. We have confirmed that Baby is deaf, although it does not affect her ability to love and manage the world around, she has adjusted well in her foster home. Baby had FHO surgery back in October and is recovering well. We feel she is ready to find her forever home with a family that is willing to do physical therapy exercises with her and possibly open to land and water therapy in a veterinary rehabilitation center. Baby also has some arthritis in her joints which she takes daily supplements for. Baby would love to find her forever family and is hoping they are looking for her too! If you are searching for a super sweet low maintenance kind of girl, then just mention Baby on your application. If you are already approved, then just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you want to meet Baby.
