Hi Everyone, I'm Ruby! I'm new to ABR but I'm already ready to find my forever home! Is that you? A bit about me: well my foster mom says I'm just about the perfect pup and really pretty (she's so nice). I'm a pretty chill girl for a 2 year old, but I do have a nice healthy amount of energy. I'm not bouncing off the walls like some young boxers do. I was really nervous when I got to my foster home, but now I'm more comfortable and I'm really enjoying walks and playing in the yard. I had a boxer brother at my previous home and I have one here at my foster home too, so I'd really like a fur friend to play with in my furever home! I'm a pretty submissive gal so I get along well with other dogs. I love kids too! I'm house trained (haven't had a single accident in my foster home, thank you very much) and crate trained. I don't mind my crate at all. In fact, my foster family leaves the door open and I go there to chill sometimes when I want my own space. I know how to sit and I'm working on some other tricks. I saw some cats at the vet and I was curious but didn't really pay any attention to them. I was pretty nervous and distracted though so my family isn't 100% sure I'm cat friendly. I'm still a little apprehensive of new things since I've had so many changes lately, so you'll need to be a bit patient and reassuring with me as I get used to my new world. I am really looking forward to my new life with my furever family! If you think you can love me forever, I'd sure love to meet you! Mention me, Ruby, to the adoption coordinator!

Liam made his way into the care of ABR when he was surrender by his previous owner. This small, sweet, medium energy boy loves attention and wants to be close. He is happy to make himself a spot in your lap, loves to cuddle, and has not met a stranger. He is a curious boxer and has gotten along with all dogs he has met. He follows direction well, is learning commands and manners. He is good in a kennel and making progress with being house trained. He is learning to play with toys and is funny to watch. He is food motivated and will happily clean uneaten food in other dog bowls. If he sounds like a great fit, then mention Liam on your application.

Mojo is estimated to be 7 years young! He is full of life and love and wants nothing more than an active family and a playmate or two...or four to wrestle around with. You heard that right, ACTIVE family! Mojo has lots of energy and isn't slowed down a bit by his age. Some of his favorite things are zooming around in the backyard, chasing tennis balls, anything that squeaks and snuggling up with his people. He really has a great interest in kids and tends to follow his foster skin siblings around to see what they are getting into. He can sometimes get a little excited while playing outside and he is working on his manners to keep his paws off his people when jumping all around, so outside play time with small kids should be supervised until he gets the hang of what's appropriate play. But other than that he is fabulous with people and kids of all sizes. He got along great with a female and male boxer in his temp foster home and the transport who brought him to his current foster home said that he made lots of friends along the way. He knows where to do his business and inside is a playful but calm gentle soul. He is a little curious about things on the counters and tables but listens when told no. He can sit and does great on a leash. His foster family thinks he is just the best and would add him to their family if they didn't have 3 boxers of their own. If Mojo sounds like the man of your dreams, please mention him on your application, or if approved, to the adoption coordinator to meet this sweet hunk of love.

Hello, Mr Bean here! I wanted to stop by and say 'Thank you!' to all of those that contributed to my care. I was pretty sick there for a while and thought my candle had burnt out but the wonderful supporters of ABR said it was not yet my time. Things are pretty rough out there on the streets. Trying to find a warm spot to rest, the next meal, a gentle hand...well those scraps I found didn’t have a warning in bark so I didn’t know that little bit of food could actually end my life. Now, that wrapper is in my past now and so is that life. Now I am enjoying life as a pampered pup! Here are a couple of super sweet things about me:

If I sound like the right pup for your home, please put Mr. Bean on your application.

Jasper is a handsome, super sweet, sensitive, loving boxer boy. He has been friendly with every person he has met. He is well-mannered. He knows sit, no, off, and free (his release command). He has learned to wait for his food and wait to get out of the car. He walks great on a leash. He is learning “leave it,” loves car rides, and loves to play. His favorite toy is a tennis ball. Jasper will fetch it and bring it back. Sometimes, he even drops it at your feet. Jasper will also catch the tennis ball mid-air. Watching him play with a tennis ball is so much fun! He loves to be petted and be near you. He is house trained. While he does not love his crate, he will go in (sometimes after a good shove), protest for a few minutes with pathetic whining/howling, and then settle in. However, he does so well now left out of the crate, that his foster mom leaves him out while she is gone. Jasper will go to the door when he needs to go out. Sometimes, he even rings the bells. His foster home does not allow the dogs on the furniture and Jasper has learned to respect that. He still tries to get on the furniture. With a “no,” he gets off or does not get on. Jasper could easily be persuaded to join his new family on the furniture. He likes the Great Dane in his house. Jasper just wishes she was more playful. At 7 1/2, she is not quite the match for his energy level. Because he values his “things” (attention, food, water), he would do best as an only dog in a home. He might also do well in a home with a large dominant female (>100 lbs). His ideal home would have a fenced yard in which to play and someone who is home more often than not. (No cats as his prey drive gets the best of him).

If you think Jasper sounds like a great fit for your home, please ask about Jasper. You will be so happy that you did. www.atlantaboxerrescue.org.Already approved? Just mention JASPER to the adoption coordinator!

I'm not fat, I'm big boned! I'm also named Junior, though my daddies often call me Chunk. I'm a big happy boy that loves to be near my people, lay around in the warm sun, and have my belly scratched by anyone who might offer. I'm 7 or 8 years old, which they say makes me a senior. I have no health issues, and my daddies have me on a diet to get me trimmed down so I'm more attractive for the ladies. I spend my days with three other boxer fur people and get along well with them. I was recently introduced to the feline variety of fur person and that didn't go well. I've never been around those before and I was very interested in what they were all about, probably too interested. I have been around some small skin children and I liked them a lot. They were full of nice body scratches!!

I'm a calm boy and rarely raise my voice, unless you count my howling at a passing ambulance. I know where to go to potty and have a few basic commands under my belt. I'm very glad the daddies decided to take me in, but they have a full house and I'd love to get to a home where I could get more attention. It can be hard to compete with young fur people for time with the daddies.

If your interested in giving a big, happy, goofy boy his furever home just mention Junior on your application.

Hi Everyone, my name is Tank, but my nickname is "Sizzle." My smallest foster human loves princesses and fairies so I let her call me "Tankerbelle," whatever; I don't take myself that seriously. I'm a very sweet, low key older guy with a lot of life still left to live! My foster family thinks I'm the greatest. They say I have good manners and that I'm super smart. I hear them say I'm "easy peasy" and "super chill.’ I don't understand these words, but I think they're good.

I have two skin siblings in my foster house and I just love them! I get along great with other dogs, but I'm not quite sure how I feel about very small dogs yet. It turns out I love to chase cats, I just can't help myself. I actually had to say goodbye to my first foster home because of that, so my mom says I will be best in a forever home without cats.

Even though I've been around the block, I still have lots of skills to show off. You see, I'm incredibly athletic and I can jump really high. My family doesn't like this because I can escape over their five foot fence! Since I don't understand how dangerous it can be out wandering the world, I will do best in a forever home with a tall fence, or a setting where my escape artist skills aren't dangerous to me. Don't worry though, I'm learning how awesome it is to be loved, and now I don't really want to go anywhere without my family.

This has led to a bit of separation anxiety. I know, you're wondering how a chill guy like me could be anxious. Well, you see, I've had a lot of changes lately, and I just can't be sure my people are coming back, so I get anxious. I'm okay if I'm left with another dog, but being all by myself is so hard. I'm working on it though and getting better already.

I'm good on a leash, i love my toys, and I love, love, LOVE to snuggle!

I'm so happy to be living the good life now, and I can't wait to find my forever home. Are you a good match for me? If so, mention me, "Tank" to the adoption coordinator. I can't wait to meet you!

HELLO THERE! I’m PUMPKIN! I was named that by my little human friend who wanted to be Cinderella and I was her puppy Pumpkin. It was also close to Halloween. I was rescued from a local shelter with a cold and a massive tumor hanging from my leg. Luckily there was a foster who saw my pleading face and opened their home and heart to let me stay for a while. I was super shy at first, my foster wasn’t use to having an older dog in the home with their 2 younger boxers in the home. I was hesitant until I began trusting my new family. My personality is out the roof now. I love running in the back yard with my fur siblings and I enjoy having my little human feed me and give me treats. I spend most my days sleeping in my bed in my foster dad’s office while he works. Let’s talk about my grey face. The vet thinks I’m a younger dog with premature graying. I have a preexisting condition which no one is really sure what’s going on. Sometimes I knuckle over my back feet. I have been correcting them and it’s getting better every day. I’m not in pain but some people wonder what’s going on. I still go on 3+ mile walks daily and play outside in the back yard. My fur siblings think I’m crazy because I get so excited to run around. I’m a truly happy girl. I’m a crate trained and house trained. My family leaves me out because I’m so trusting. I’m great on a leash and I love going on car rides to pick my mini human up from school everyday.MY family has also figured out that I would rather play with the kitties and I’m sometimes not so nice to them. I just don’t understand them. If you are looking for a low key great companion to hang out with you on the couch or play outside with I’m your girl! Please mention me on your application or let the adoption coordinator know you would like to meet. Can’t wait to meet you!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my toys and love spending time with my mom and fur siblings outside in the yard - I can run and play for days. I am also an expert and playing ball - if you will throw it I will bring it back! If you are looking for a young, loving, energetic boy to become part of your family I might be the guy!

Hello World. Saybin here. I came to ABR in mid April. My former family has some illness of their own and decided I would be better off in a home that is able to care for me.

I escaped from my home and went off on an adventure for a couple of days; what was I thinking? While I was gone I hurt my right rear leg pretty bad. It seems I have a torn cruciate. Not so bad? It’s the ONLY rear leg I have. About 3 years ago something happened and I had to have my right rear leg amputated. I was fine with this until now. I’ve been gimping around on my hurt leg so my foster mom took me to the orthopedic surgeon. After poking and prodding and an x-ray, he determined I need a TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) surgery. This isn’t a cheap surgery, costing around $3,000 +/-. My goodness that’s a lot of money but ABR has stepped up to help me have the surgery. Now, I’m asking for you to help ABR help me. If everyone donates just a little bit it will help so much. Skip the gourmet coffee for a day, eat in instead of going out, there are lots of painless ways to help. And it’s so easy...Paypal is our friend. You can donate online here.

In the meantime, I’ll be hanging out at my foster home where the pack welcomed me with open paws. There is only 1 step for me to get outside and Mom helps me get back in. I can get in on my own but it is so much easier when she helps me.

OK then. Thank you for helping me help Atlanta Boxer Rescue help me.

Rex is a 5 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.

My name is Jolie and I am a middle-aged, easygoing boxer girl looking for my forever home. My foster mom says, “I am a very good girl, because I go with the flow and am happy just about anywhere and with anyone (except cats)” I’ve gone through a lot of changes in my life and just know how to roll with the punches! I am currently the only dog in my foster home and don’t mind the extra human attention, but sometimes I miss having a dog friend to play with. You see I am usually pretty laid back and love to lie on my dog bed and catch some Z’s. When I got bored or have to go potty, I just tell my foster mom with a tap dance and a bark and she takes me outside or throws my ball for me. I’m pretty smart because I have even learned to throw my ball for myself. I have also never had an accident in the house, because I know you’re only supposed to go outside. I have very good manners on my leash, but sometimes I see a squirrel or a bird and my excitement gets the best of me; I just have to chase it! For this reason, I would be better off in a home without cats. I do like dogs, but I need a nice slow introduction, so I have time to decide if I want to be friends! I had a boxer brother in my last home that I loved to run and play with, so my ABR family is confident that I can still make new dog friends! In fact, I met a new dog friend on my leash the other day! My foster mom had to remind me that it’s rude to bark at other dogs and I was able to sniff and say “hello” without a problem. If you’re looking for an easygoing 4-legged companion mention me “Jolie” on your application.

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 9 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?
