Hello I’m Alice! My foster mom says I’m such a sweetheart. I walk well on a leash and love to go for walks. I know I’m supposed to only potty outside. I also love to cuddle with you! I love my fur sister and I get along with the felines as well but sometimes I want to play with them and they don’t play back. I will go in a crate but I don’t like it very much. My foster mom always leaves me out and I’m always a good girl. I don’t like sharing my food with other dogs because I wasn’t fed very well before so I like to eat seperate. I love to play with squeaky toys they’re my favorite. I promise to be your best friend and give you unconditional love forever. If you think I’m your girl please mention my name in the application.

Hi, I’m Gidget! As my name implies, I’m a small but spunky girl. My foster mom says that I’m a laid back love – a real charmer. I walk well on the leash, know I’m supposed to potty outside and am patient, tender and loving with kids. I also love other a dogs. My foster fur sister is a much bigger and bossier boxer, and I just go with the flow. I like to go on walks and scamper after things in the back yard, but I’m also happy to lie down in whatever room my people are in and chill. I will bat my eyes at you to let you know I want to snuggle with you on the couch, but I’m also alright to just lay at your feet. I do okay in the crate, but it’s not my favorite, and I’m fine to be left out. My foster mom crates me at night because I’m a little overly exuberant with the kitty. I would be okay in a house with a cat and will leave them alone if you call my name or tell me un-uh. But you’ll need to help me know the boundaries. I’m a pocket boxer and very gentle. I would be a great solo dog or an addition to a full household. I promise you lots of wet kisses, Boxer wiggles and unconditional love. If you think I might be the girl for you, mention Gidget 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?

Max is just a sweet old man! He had spent most of his life locked in a kennel unable to live the life every dog so deserves! Due to his prior outdoor living situation he is at times unsure of himself and looks to his foster for guidance in this new wonderful life he is living, he had to learn what life on the inside is like! But he is very eager to learn and please and has adapted wonderfully. Despite being older he doesn’t look it. He is a very handsome guy with super soft fur that makes it even more enjoyable to pet him. He is incredibly loving and really just enjoys relaxing and being loved on. If you are looking for a cuddle buddy this is your guy! He is well-mannered, house trained, and walks very well on a leash. He does still mark occasionally, however he was just recently fixed and that should pass with a little time and training. He is great with kids and other people but is very protective of his home and should be supervised around guests until he feels comfortable. He does not like to share with other dogs, so due to this he should be in an only dog home. Due to his prey drive he should not be in a home with cats. Max is an incredibly sweet and loving dog who aims to please and show his affection. When you meet him you will undoubtedly fall in love with him immediately! Don’t miss out on an opportunity to adopt your new best buddy!

Hi, My name is Buddy and I am 5 years old. My name really describes me because I’m low key and just want to be your best friend! I need lots of love and affection; my favorite thing to do is snuggle. Although I am very gentle, I am a big boy therefore I might not be the best fit for a family with toddlers or very small children. My foster parents have taught me how to "sit" and then show my love, although sometimes I get excited. They’re teaching “off” and “stay.” They say I’m very trainable and I just want to please. When they train me and I do well, I get little treats. I think I am learning because I like these treats! My eating habits are good I really do enjoy my food. My foster parents have 2 cats and a Boxer dog. I don’t mind them at all I do great in groups of animals, although I do like to be the center of attention. My Boxer friend loves running around and chasing me in the backyard. We enjoy romping around, but she is definitely much faster than I am and can wear me out! I usually nap for a while after we do this or when we occasionally go to doggy daycare. I enjoy playing, but I am not the energizer bunny I love down time and naps. If I sound like your new best friend then please mention me, Buddy on your application!

Hello my name is Hannah. My foster mom calls me Hannah Banana. I love everything! I love playing with my fur brothers. When we are not playing together, I love to snuggle with them. The only thing I love more than snuggling with them is snuggling with my foster mom and dad. My foster parents also have a 5 year old granddaughter who comes to visit. I love her too! They are always calling me a love bug. I am a little confused.I looked but I didn't see any bugs!

In addition to being a love bug, I am also well-behaved. I am house-trained. I am good when my foster mom runs her errands and leaves me out. I also know it's not polite to jump on people, especially the little ones without fur. So, I just talk to them.

I love to play and have fun but I am not a good candidate to be a running buddy or for long walks. You see arthritis has settled into my bones. I am a very special girl that defied all the odds (making it out of animal control and overcoming a host of medical issues). I am now ready for my forever home. My forever home should have people that are home more often than not.to love on me of course! Another dog would also be a bonus. Please mention me, Hannah Banana if I sound like the perfect dog for you!

Tucker is a 4-5 year old bundle of energy. He is very active and loves to play, but is able to snuggle with you after he works off some energy! He loves kids and other dogs of all sizes but likes to chase cats! He is house trained and will go in the crate but does not prefer it. He needs a little reinforcement when walking on a leash but does well with a gentle leader. He should be supervised if not in a fenced yard. He is still working on his manners when greeting new people. He gets very excited and likes to jump. Tucker had a benign follicular cyst that was removed. He still needs to gain a few pounds but is overall very healthy. If you're looking for a fun, loving companion for your family, mention Tucker on your application!

What a journey this sweet boxer girl has had! She came to ABR with severe mange and through lots of care from her fosters, she is ready to journey no more. She loves cuddling on the couch and gives sweet boxer kisses. However.. she does stress when her foster mom or her fur-skin buddies are out of sight. She is an escape artist and will do almost anything when left alone. She gets along with most fur skins but is not real fond of cats or small dogs. Being alone in a crate is NOT an option unless shared with a fur-skin. Journey would do best with someone who is home full-time and/or has a fur-skin to keep her company. If you think she might be a fit, please be sure to put "Journey" on your application.

Hi! I’m Bosco and who couldn’t love this face! I have a lot of energy and like to get into trouble but I don’t mean to. I have a lot of puppy behavior and like to jump, box and mouth. I also like eating things I shouldn’t and just recently had surgery to remove a foreign object (sock) from my tummy. I don’t have the best manners and need someone that is patient and loving to help me learn proper behavior. I will need a lot of work, but promise it will pay off in the end. My foster family has been working really hard to help me learn some basic commands and manners. I catch on real quick and love getting treats for doing such a great job. I love going for walks/runs but I’m not so great all the time on the leash. I tend to bite the leash and play tug of war when I get excited. I will need a family that is dedicated to helping me mature and become the well mannered pup I know I can be. I need an active family that will give me daily exercise as this will help curb my mischievous behavior. Professional training is also highly recommended. My foster mom thinks someone who has had boxers before would be a great fit for me so they will understand my boyish and boxer nature. I get along with all dogs and would love to have another fur brother or sister or can be fine with being the only child.

I will need a home with a fenced in back yard so I can burn off some of this energy. I am house trained and crate trained although I don’t like being in the crate for long hours. A family that has someone home often or works from home would be wonderful! I love children but probably would not be best suited for a family with young kids because I can become over excited and rough at times when playing.

I’m really just a big goofy boy who likes to play and gets into mischief. I make a great snuggle partner when I settle in and I promise I’ll make a great family addition and reward you with lots of love and loyalty. If I sound like your pup, please mention me on your application.

Lil Bit is the most sweetest snuggle pup you will ever meet. She loves nothing more than to lay with you and cuddle!! She follows her foster Mom and Skin sister (2 years) around the house like a shadow. She is quiet and calm inside but likes to run and chase wildlife in the back yard i.e. birds and squirrels. She is good with her fur sister after a slow introduction and is slowly starting to play with her fur sister after being with us about a month. Lil Bit would do best in a home where someone is home most of the day because she drinks a lot of water and takes frequent outside breaks. She is house trained and crate trained. She walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. She does have issues with her kidneys so we have put her on a special diet which helps her tremendously. She will be altered as soon as we feel she is strong enough to go through this process. She will then be ready for her forever home. If you are looking for a sweet, calm snuggle nugget then Lil Bit might be the one for you .

Lena found her way into the care of Atlanta Boxer Rescue by a volunteer who found her extreme neglected state and pleading eyes too much to turn away. She was too weak to walk in the vet's office, but has blossomed into a companion like no other. Lena was diagnosed with diabetes. This can sound complicated, but being on a schedule is the hardest part. She is fed two times a day and 30 minutes after her meals she seems to know her shot is due. It does not appear to even bother her. She gets the same type of insulin people receive. She sits or comes to the refrigerator with you to get her shot, then gets excited about baby carrots for a treat. This girl is not a picky eater, loving vegetables for treats. She needs a constant schedule with feeding, treats, and exercise. She has flexibility to adjust to your schedule, but needs a routine to prevent sudden changes in her sugar level. She would be best suited being the only dog to receive your attention. Happiest by your side, she does not require a big yard to play. When finished doing her business outside she is found sitting on a chair looking for someone to let her inside. Lena seems to understand direction given and is eager to please. Already crate trained, house broken, and is good on a leash. She knows "sit" and picked up on "wait" quickly. A fun girl to train because she picks up so quickly, and easy to reward with treats or toys. We can't speak enough on her good manners. This happy girl just wants to be close and if you talk to her, she can't help but reach up to give kisses. It is hard not to fall in love with the excitement she shows when giving and receiving affection. If this is a companion that will fit right in with you, mention Lena on your application.

Hi, I am Gretchen! My son Milo and I were darting in and out of traffic when some very nice people stopped to give us food and take us to safety. Thankfully we made our way to Atlanta Boxer Rescue and things have been much better ever since! I love playing with my toys and giving kisses. I don’t really like other cats and dogs (except for Milo) so we will probably need to be the only animals. I am currently recovering from surgery but will be better soon and would love to make my way into your heart!

Hi, I am Milo! I am a playful guy who loves boxing, going on walks and just being with my humans. But most of all I love my mama! We are both house and crate trained and love humans of all ages. I am a little skittish at first, but am becoming more trusting each day. If we are the dogs for you, I promise that I will never leave your side! If you think we might be the dogs for you, mention us in your application!

Everybody loves Bindi. And Bindi loves everybody. She plays well with the tiniest Yorkie and the Biggest Great Dane and everybody in between. She is good with cats even though they don't play well, and she loves all people - especially those little ones. She is incredibly smart and it doesn't take very long for her to figure out the rules. She loves to play and has plenty of Boxer energy; she loves to run, and jump, and box, and wrestle. She especially loves to play fetch with about anything you can throw - balls, toys, pinecones - if you throw it, she'll run to get it. When she isn't playing, she is a calm girl who just wants to lay close and watch tv with you, or look out the window, or just take a nice long nap.

She has a very gentle mouth and is very careful when taking treats from your hand, but her bowl is her bowl and she feels threatened when someone gets close to it while she is eating, probably from a difficult time in her life not too long ago when food was hard to come by. When Bindi came to us she was a very sick girl. She had giardia and kennel cough and was barely able to stand. We thought that was all it was, but as she got better we learned that not all her medical issues were temporary. We don't know what happened or when, but Bindi has partial paralysis in her back quarters. It isn't noticeable while she is running and playing, but she wobbles a little when she sits, and she doesn't have full control of her bladder and bowels. She also can't squat so she isn't able to 'eliminate' completely on her own. So having Bindi is a little like having a toddler - she has to be in a diaper. And once a day she needs help emptying her bladder so she doesn't get a urinary infection. She doesn't mind her diaper, and she doesn't try to take it off. She can even go awhile without it on but keeping it on is generally a better idea. If she gets excited or frightened, she will tense her stomach muscles, and there will be an accident if she has a bare bottom. It is surprising how quickly that diaper is just a normal part of life and she is just a normal, energetic, loving, sweet puppy.

About everybody who meets Bindi falls in love with her. It will just take a special someone willing to take the extra time and effort to care for her. And you might just love her a little bit more, because she needs you a little bit more than a 'normal' dog does.

Faith had quite the rough life before coming to ABR. She was found roaming the streets, severely malnourished and full of parasites. ABR volunteers worked incredibly hard to get her weight up and she is now happy and healthy, but longs for a forever family. Faith is completely crate-trained, leash-trained and house-broken. Faith minds very well, and has excellent manners on the leash and inside the house. Faith is okay around adults and kids. She is not great with dogs, but has done well when slowly introduced to older/calm male dogs. Faith would love nothing more than to find a forever home to go on long walks and relax with her humans. If you would like to know more about Faith and meet her, please ask for her on your application!
