Ahoy Mateys! Pirate here! I just want to let you know that I am single and ready to mingle! I am a young pup with still puppy like behavior. My foster mommy says I am very smart and trainable. She says I am a sweet and goofy boy that loves people and other pups! I saw a cat or two and didn't really show any reaction, but I might just be tempted to try to play with one! I would do best in a home with other fur-siblings so they can show me the ropes. I am still learning my doggy manners and need a patient and fun fur-sibling...I can be a little annoying with all my playfulness. I am a submissive pup and understand when I am corrected by another dog. So far my foster mommy thinks that I am crate trained, although I may whine when initially going in but I may need a little work on house training. I am looking for a patient loving family who has the time to give me the attention I need and able to work with me on basic commands and manners. I am super cute and love everyone one I meet. An ideal home for me would include a fenced in yard so I can burn off some of my puppy energy! I would probably do best in a home with older kids since I do tend to jump up or an experienced family that is familiar with active young dogs. I'm ready to find my crew so yo ho ho fill out your app and just mention Pirate! If you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you want to meet Pirate! Hurry before someone else gets this treasure!

Meet Jackson! He is an energetic, sweet pup that loves to play with his fur brother and snuggle with his foster mom. He will follow you all over the house to ensure he's right there if there's an extra hug or kiss being given out. He will take all the lovin' he can get! He is very playful and has recently discovered how amazing toys are. Jackson absolutely loves his foster brother and instigates playtime as much as he can. He would do best in a house that had another friendly playful dog that could keep up with his energy. He has also discovered the wonders of a comfy couch and can now be found sleeping upside down with his tongue out when no one is looking. He would do best in a home that allows him on the furniture and in the bed. He will sleep in a dog bed if he must, but he will give sad eyes until he's allowed up to snuggle.

Jackson is a fast learner, learning basic commands. He's a very smart boy. His foster mom tried to contain him to the kitchen and he skillfully escaped no matter what kind of fence, gate or barricade she tried to construct. Silly foster mom, he's smarter than that! He does well being left in a closed room or free range of the house. He has not encountered cats or small children yet but with his sweet demeanor his foster mom has no concerns that he won't do well with either. Jackson is such a sweetheart and loves to be with his people. If you think Jackson sounds like a great match for your family, just mention him on your application or if you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator you would like to meet Jackson! He is currently being treated for heartworms and will be available soon.

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.

Hi Everyone! My name is Buddy and my foster family thinks it suits me great because I just want to be everyone's Buddy! I love people of all ages and love getting attention. I currently live with a small skin sibling (3 years old) and a foster fur-sister and I just love them both! I am an active pup but I also LOVE snuggles! I can be a little jumpy and will need help on greetings, I just can't help myself and get so excited! I am crate and house trained and I know a few simple commands like sit and stay and I walk great on a leash. I will need a little refining on my house manners; I still have some puppy like behavior with jumping, barking (when I want to play, when I hear noises, when someone rings the doorbell....you know typical boxer stuff), I can chew things if left out and not monitored and I may have counter surfed for food a time or two. My new family will need to be able to train/work with me and help me become the best pup I can be! My foster mom said she feels these behaviors can be easily remedied with a family who could give me attention throughout the day and has the time to work with me. I am super smart and will learn quickly, I am very eager and motivated. My foster mom feels a stay at home or work from home mom/dad would be ideal and also a fenced in backyard so I can run around and play...man that sure sounds awesome! I do great with other pups and would love to have a fun fur-sibling to play with or I would be ok as the only pet getting all the attention. I just completed my heartworm treatment and ready to start the search for my furever family! If I sound like your kind of pup, just mention me on your application or if you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and let her know you would like to meet Buddy.

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.

Meet Locke. This gentle giant will steal your heart! He came to ABR after being found as a stray and in rough shape. When he came to ABR he had an open leg wound, broken teeth, swollen gums and was very lethargic but none of this took away from how sweet he was! Once in ABR care, he was taken immediately to the vet to get his vitals checked and although in bad shape he was very stable. He went into his foster home and shortly began heartworm treatment and had multiple skin graphs to repair the skin tissue on his leg. He is now healthy and has completed his heartworm treatment and his leg is almost completely healed! He is house broken, crate trained and very mellow. Sometimes he does not like going out in the rain, but it just takes a little persuading. He can be playful if you want to be playful or he will chill when you want to chill. Right now he has a crazy hyper foster fur brother who is always trying to get him to play; sometimes he will, sometimes he will just lay down, but he is very tolerant. He would be a good fit for someone with or without other dogs. He has been around a handful of kids and has one human foster brother who is just a baby. He is very gentle around him and only tries to give him kisses any chance he gets. He has come in contact with one cat at the vet office and didn't show any interest in her or the other dogs in the waiting room. He is quiet and calm; his foster parents haven't even heard him bark. He does seem to get anxious when he hears buzzers, like the microwave, dishwasher, baby toys beeping and he will howl at them. We think he is still trying to figure out life inside of a home but his foster brother helps him know that it's all ok. If you think this gentle soul sounds like your kind of guy, then just mention Locke on your application or if you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you want to meet Locke!

Mack's my name and chillin's my game! My foster family said I'm a pretty laid back dude that's a little on the smaller side for boxers. I was so happy to get out of the shelter and come to a nice comfy foster home, I just love being in the house. I hear I'm pretty "easy peasy" and such a great house guest. I love all children, I'm currently living with 4 ranging from 8-12 but I have also been around the little ones and did just great! There's not a person I've met that I don't like, I love people and attention.....ssshhhh don't tell anyone but my foster dad is my favorite! I am crate trained but I'm not in there for long periods since my foster mom is a stay at home mom, how lucky am I!! I am also house trained but because I am so quiet, sometimes my foster mom doesn't see me waiting by the door and I have had an accident, maybe I could learn to ring a bell in my new home, who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks! I do well with my foster fur siblings (female & male), but sometimes they can be a little too much with their rough housing, I would probably prefer a home with fur-siblings with a similar personality to mine or being the only fur-kid doesn't sound so bad either. I love hanging outside with my foster family and watching the kids play. I just recently had knee surgery and recovering well, I can't wait to go for walks and chase a ball or two. Once I heal, I will be available for adoption and I hope I find a great match. If you're looking for a laid back guy who goes with the flow, then mention Mack on your application. If you are already approved, just let the adoption coordinator know you want to meet me!

Meet Trinity, a very sweet and playful girl! Trinity has been in her foster home for a couple of weeks now and settling in well. In Trinity's past, she was use to being outside however has quickly become accustomed to the lap of luxury of being an inside pet! She is a smart girl who has already learned to sit and ring the chimes when she wants to go outside. Trinity walks well on a leash and loves to be outside! She enjoys entertaining herself with lots of toys that her foster family have spoiled her with but also enjoys the company of other fur-friends (no cats please). Trinity lived in a home with 6 other dogs and 4 children ranging in ages 2 - 11 years old. She loves to snuggle with her foster family every chance she gets and would prefer a home that would allow her on the bed/furniture. She is a quiet girl that doesn't bark much and is more on the laid back side. Trinity is not fond of the crate, so we hope there is a family that is willing to work with her on giving her free roam of the house. An ideal home for Trinity would be one that has a stay at home/work from mom or dad, another fur-sibling(s) to play with and a fenced in backyard so she can enjoy running around and hanging outside with her new family. Trinity sounds like a dream to you, then just mention her on your application. If you are already approved, then just let the adoption coordinator know you would like to meet Trinity.

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 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.

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?
