Hi Boxer lovers, meet Miracle, also affectionately known as “Emmie” to her foster family and all her friends. Emmie is a sweet, young girl full of personality who has been with her foster family 5 weeks now. This special girl has been through a lot, although you would never know by her fun playful nature. She was saved by ABR after being hit by a car; we did not know her chances of survival, hence her name Miracle. Since the accident, "Emmie" has made a full recovery and a once scared,non-trusting girl, who was in a lot of pain, is now full of life and her loving personality shines through with every passing day!

Emmie loves playing with her foster fur-brothers in the backyard but is perfectly content just chilling in the living room with her foster parents, she loves to snuggle with you on the couch and loves to be loved on! Emmie is not fond of the crate and can be stubborn going in, so throwing in a tasty treat helps, and once she is in, she is fine. Emmie would probably do best with a family where she is not left for long periods, possible a stay at home/work from home Mom or Dad. Emmie does well with small children and dogs her own size or larger. She does ok with her foster family’s small Boston Terrier, but they think she probably would not do well in a home with cats. Emmie will need some work on basic commands, however does well on the leash. This little girl has a great appetite and loves to eat! She could easily be trained with special treats and catch on in no time at all.

Emmie is ready for her forever home, will it be yours? If she sounds like a perfect match, please let our adoption coordinator know you would like to meet her or just mention Emmie (aka Miracle) on your application!

Male

Bruce LeeRoy is a low energy, happy, non reactive boy. The best description is Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh, content to watch his surroundings. Not even giving a reaction when a small dog growled at him and has gotten along with all dogs he has met. Slowly this boy is coming out of his shell each day with positive encouragement. There are no accident or incident when left out in the house with a workday period of time and will go in a kennel with persuasion. Leash training outside is not the best, he does not pull, but does not understand walking beside you. Inside a slip leash is used with great success to move him to the desired area. He does not seem to know the basics, even sit and come is a working progress. More of a challenge because he is not food motivated. He is showing an interest in toys and has the best head tilt for toys that squeak. Mention Bruce LeeRoy on your application if he sounds like a fit.

Hi! My name is Roxie. I am what is called a “Pocket Boxer” because of my size. When I was rescued from the shelter I was only 36 lbs. and had pneumonia and kennel cough. Now thanks to my temporary foster I have gained a few pounds in just a short time and my cough is almost gone. I am a very loving and sensitive girl who would love a family especially with kids. Because of my cough I have not been able to be around other furry friends, but I’m sure I could get along with others. I am a little shy and reserved. I guess this is because I did not have a lot of love in my past. My foster tells me I’m doing pretty good on my crate training and house training. I only had a few mistakes and I bark a little when initially left alone but calm done in a few minutes. I still have to get my heart worm test, rabies shot and be spayed, so I will not be available until February but I would love to meet you if you are approved. Please tell the adoption coordinator that you are interested in Roxie.

Meet Sadie (affectionately known as Sadie Lou McNubbins). This adorable girl has only been in her foster home for a week, but so far she has been the perfect house guest. She is house-trained and hasn’t demonstrated any destructive behavior. She is not a huge fan of her crate, but crating her may not be necessary. She has been on her best behavior every time she has been given free rein of the house. Sadie is a playful pup with a gentle nature. In the house she is content with snuggles and belly rubs, but let her outside and she’ll run wild. She would probably do best in a home with a fenced in yard. Sadie is recovering from kennel cough so she has not been tested with other animals, but she hasn’t met a human she doesn’t like. Sadie will be starting heartworm treatment this month, but she will be ready to meet her forever family in the near future. If Sadie sounds like the perfect fit for your family, please let the adoption coordinator know that you would love to meet her or mention Sadie on your application.

Hey friends, Vegas here! Boy is life good being an ABR dog! I'm hanging out being spoiled in my foster home, just waiting to find my forever home. My foster parents are making my ego big because they keep saying how beautiful and awesome I am. I love, love, love, my foster skin siblings; I follow them around all the time. I'm super sweet and love to snuggle with any and everyone! I'm a well-mannered girl and listen well. I'm really enjoying my walks but I'm still a little scared being out in a new place. I do well in my crate and am house trained. I love to play but I'm also pretty chill. I love dogs big and small, and I even liked the cat at the vet! She didn't really like me though. I know a few commands and am working on more. My mom says I only have one thing called a 'bad habit'...I like to eat socks, well not all socks, just dirty ones. I don't go seeking them out or anything, but if I see one I usually try to eat it. Weird, right? Mom says it is not safe, and I need a family that can either easily keep dirty socks put away where I can't get them (this can be hard with small kids who forget), or is willing to train me to stay away, either with an air horn or maybe some bitter apple. I'll have my spay and a mass removed in a few days and I'll be ready to meet you real soon! If you think I could be your gal just mention me, Vegas to the adoption coordinator or fill out an application if you're not already approved. I can't wait to meet you!

Meet Molly. A very sweet fun-loving gentle girl. Molly came to ABR when a kind neighbor found her abandoned by her owner living outside with no food or shelter and an injured leg. Molly loves her fur brother and adores her 3 skin sisters at her foster home! She is truly a mama bear always giving kisses and right by the kids side. No worries about being too crazy around kids with molly she would do BEST with kids in the house and a furry friend to play with. Even with a torn ACL (which is being fixed this week!) she loves to romp and play with people, toys and her fury friends. When greeted by new faces she is a total love bug! Slow introduction with other dogs is recommended as she likes to be the alpha but once she's comfortable does great! She is house and crate trained but of course loves to cuddle with her foster family at night when her family leaves the house molly is best to be crated as she is an active girl and loves toys and chewing them:) but she's a very good listener and a smart learner. Molly is going to make one lucky family VERY happy. Her foster family will surely be sad to say goodbye, what a good girl!

Milly came to ABR weighing 21.5 pounds, she has gained 7 lbs in the last 3 weeks and is doing quite well. Milly is almost completely house trained having only a few accidents when she first arrived. Milly gets along with my pugs and tries to play with them, she loves toys and will take all of them out of the toy box and collect them in her bed, she does not guard the toys and is happy to share them with the pugs; but ultimately steals them back. Milly spent Christmas with a rambunctious 4 year old and was very gentle with him. Milly also walks past my sisters cat without a care, my sisters cat is quite mellow and used to dogs. Milly is doing well on her training, she can sit but does not always want to before dinner because she was so hungry and underweight, but now that she knows the routine and knows she will be fed she is much better. Milly’s crate training went well too, although she will fuss when put in her crate she settles down pretty quickly. She sleeps in her crate in my room and does not fuss when I put her in if it’s bedtime and she is with me. Milly needs to gain about 8-10 more pounds and then can be spayed, she will be ready for her forever home after she is spayed. You can tell by the pics that she is thriving, she is still thin but getting better every day.

Hi, I’m Kayda and I am your dream girl, or so I am told. I am a young girl with lots of love to give. My foster parents love watching me sleep because I have the best underbite and my tongue sticking out is “so cute!” I absolutely love kids and adults alike and I love to snuggle. My foster parents say that I am very calm and do really well around my fur foster siblings. I love to run and play outside with my foster brother who is the same age, but when I come inside I love to nap! I saw some cats at the vet and was very happy to see them, although they weren’t happy to see me! I get very excited for new toys and treats, Santa Paws was very good to me and I love my new bones! I had some potty accidents when I first arrived but my foster mom says I am doing much better and that I am very smart! I don’t mind being in the crate and will go in willingly but I do very well being left out when my foster family is gone. I am very calm and gentle on the leash and don’t pull and I am learning some basic commands. If I sound like the perfect fit for your family, please let the adoption coordinator know that you would love to meet me, Kayda!

Hi I'm Penny! I got my name because I have the most beautiful gold eyes and shiny copper coat. I love and crave attention because I haven't had much of that in my life. I want to be involved in everything! I was not house trained when I came to ABR but I am doing great with a consistent routine and I am almost there. I prefer my foster mom to be with me outside to go potty, otherwise I will stand by the back door. I am learning basic commands and walk well on the leash. I am working on gaining a few more pounds since I came to ABR underweight. I have been around kids and was well behaved. I don't mind my foster cat brothers. I love my foster boxer brother and he instantly became my best buddy! I want to be in charge around my foster fur sister so I may be best in a home with another male dog or a confident female. I will walk into my crate when asked although sometimes I cry but I quickly settle down. I am about to start heartworm treatment and I will be ready for my forever home after a few weeks of rest. If I sound like the perfect fit for your family please let the adoption coordinator know that you'd like to meet me!

Meet Mr. Adorable! Kobie is a beautiful, happy, fun loving reverse brindle. He has been with his foster family for 5 weeks now and is showing more of his outgoing personality! Kobie seems well socialized around other dogs, big and small. He is very playful and can easily play with a friend or entertain himself with lots of fun toys! He loves playing fetch and is excellent on the leash and would make a great walking/running partner which would be ideal for this young boy and his energy. He is not "hyper" but does love to play and also loves to relax next to his people. Kobie loves kids and does well with them, but when first meeting them may get excited and jump (gentle jump). Kobie's foster family have fallen in love with this sweet boy and would keep him if they didn't already have two of their own. He loves playing with his foster skin sister who is 6 and his two foster fur-siblings.

When Kobie initially came to his foster family, he was very scared and timid. He has come out of his shell alot in the last 5 weeks and seems more at ease. Kobie does have a history of jumping fences so a home with a high fence 7ft + or a home with no fence would be ideal. Since Kobie has been with his foster family, he did jump their 6ft privacy fence once, so he will need a family that is aware of this ability and be diligent watching him in fenced in areas, keeping him on a leash and working with him on his recall. Kobie would need a family that will help him build trust and confidence with lots of love and positive reinforcement, he still seems unsure about some things and may take awhile to fully settle in. Kobie is a very smart and well mannered boy who already knows a few basic commands like sit, stay, shake and down, he will catch on quickly in his new home.

Kobie is house trained but is not fond of the crate, he does show signs of crate/separation anxiety, although it does not seem extreme. Kobie's foster family gives him free roam of the house and he does great, however he did have 2 days where he showed signs of anxiety when left alone and chewed the blinds/door frame. They have worked with him and have left him out several more times over the holiday break and he has done great. They think this will just be an adjustment period in his new home as he settles and may feel uneasy, but once acclimated they feel it will go away. His new family would need to feel comfortable leaving him out (no crating) and with the "unknown" of what can happen, because of this, a stay at home/work from home Mom or Dad would be best. His foser family thinks that in time he could feel comfortable in the crate, but it would need to be a slow, positive process. He shows no signs of aggressive behavior or resource guarding with his toys or food. He takes treats gently, even waiting his turn with his foster fur siblings. Kobie is a big sweetheart with a face that melts your heart! If you are interested in meeting this cutie and are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator know or you can mention Kobie on your application.

Meet Simon! Simon is a shy, sweet, loveable boy. He has the most beautiful brown soulful eyes that are easy to get lost in. He has a great temperament and does well with kids and other dogs, however can become nervous/reactive around certain dogs, depending on their energy. He currently lives with multiple foster fur-siblings and does well with most of them. He would probably do best with another confident and well-mannered pup, especially a female. Simon is gentle and kind and loves to be with his people. Once Simon has completed his heartworm treatment he will be ready for his new home, could that be yours? If you would like to learn more about Simon or meet this sweet boy, just mention his name on your application or let our adoption coordinator know you would like to meet him.

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.

Look at me. I'm not like most boxers you see. I'm what's called a POCKET BOXER. I look just like a boxer but I only weigh 43 pounds. I pack all the punch of a boxer personality in to a smaller package. I love to chase balls and run. I get along with my foster fur siblings quite well. I know how to share toys and try to encourage my fur siblings to play. I know quite a few tricks, including sit, lay and stay. I will sit and wait patiently until I am told it is okay to dig in. I am a good listener! I am working on learning how to meet people. I know I am a "work in progress" when it comes to that skill. Part of learning how to meet people involved being rewarded with treats. I like treats so I am working really hard on my people meeting manners. My foster mom told me that my manners are what will make me a well rounded boxer and allow me to be placed in my fur-ever home. I can't wait to find my family! I'm going to knock 'em out with my love and intelligence. Look out world, here comes Juneau!

Hi everyone! My name is Champ and I have megaesophagus. That means it's hard for me to eat like a normal dog. I have to eat in a special chair called a Bailey Chair. It is custom made just for me! It is a necessity because without it, it's hard for me to eat without regurgitating and that's not good for me or my foster mommy. That means I can't keep my food down. My foster family says I have some more testing to be done before I can be cleared for adoption. It's really expensive, and they don't know yet what is going on with me. Some awesome folks donated, so I could get my Bailey Chair. If you'd like to donate to my testing and vet expenses, that would be great!!

Hi, my name is Abby! Anybody out there? I've been sitting here in my foster home for so long, and nobody wants to meet me. Don't get me wrong, I love my foster mom. But I would love nothing more than to find a forever home just once in my life. Is it because I have a couple of gray hairs on my face? Don't let those fool you! I am an energetic girl who loves to run around in the back yard! In case you didn't know, adopting a more mature gal like me sure does have its advantages! I am house broken and crate trained, yet I do well at home alone outside of the crate. I know the commands “sit” and “stay”, and do them well, especially when treats are involved. I will even alert you when there are strangers coming up to the house! Foster mom keeps reminding me that the mailman is a good guy, but I'm not so sure lol. I love humans and will follow you around from room to room wagging my nubbin because I'm happy just to be near you. I do like to have all the attention, so I would prefer to be your only fur friend. And because of my size and energy, foster mom is saying I may not be suitable for young children. Please consider giving me a chance! If you think I may be a good fit for you, please mention "Abby" on your application!www.atlantaboxerrescue.org. Already approved? Just mention ABBY to the adoption coordinator!

Rex is a 6 year old, sweet, happy boy who loves his people! He will make a loyal companion for some lucky, dog savvy person. Rex gets along with some dogs, and loves to play with his companion in his foster home. His play can be rambunctious, therefore a home without young children is recommended. Rex is housetrained, crate trained, and walks nicely on a short leash. He knows ’sit’, ’watch me’, ’check in’ (to return to his foster mom), ’turn around’, ’heel’, ’let’s go’, ’this way’ and ’leave it’. He loves toys, tug of war, being silly, soccer balls, snuggling, and the couch! Rex is a strong, active boy who likes to run, but also has nice house manners in his foster home. He would be fine as an only dog or with just the right companion dog. A fenced yard is a must for this active boy. Rex is up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and neutered. He has been diagnosed with a low grade heart murmur, which has been evaluated, and does not require medication or special treatment.

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?
