Little Luna is settling right in at her new foster! She seems to think your bed is her bed, but the cuddles she offers makes her hard to resist. For the most part, Luna ignores the cat in the house, so she would probably do well with a dog savvy cat. However, once she sees him getting the attention, Luna swoops right in to steal all your pets. Luna's foster mom thinks she would do best as the single dog in the home, as she loves and wants all your attention, but she doesn't bat an eye when passing other dogs on our walks. She is crate trained and does her best not to go potty in the house, but appreciates your patience while she continues to learn. Luna does get a bit protective of her toys, so she might not do as well around small kids who try to take them away from her. Luna is a Diva in the best way possible- she wants all of your attention and will give you so much love in return! Luna is still waiting to be spayed and will be available for adoption soon after. If you are looking for a big personality in a small package, Luna's your girl.

If you are interested in meeting Luna, just mention her on your application or if you are already approved, let the adoption coordinator know you want to meet Luna.

Lucy is a medium energy, submissive girl that wants to be close for attention. This sweetheart loves toys and will take turns carrying around every toy in the toy box. She is a typical curious boxer that does not seem to have fearful triggers. This girl does not like the kennel and will go inside. She is left out without issues, house broken, walks great on a leash, and knows sit. She learns quickly, looks for commands from people, and takes direction well. She is nonreactive with the dogs she has met so far. If Lucy sounds like a great fit, then mention her on your application or contact your adoption coordinator.

Hi, I'm Jesse and I am just a big hunk of boxer love! I am doing great in my foster home and feeling so much more relaxed and working on my puppy manners. My foster mommy describes me as funny, goofy and quirky...I think that's good, right!! I am house and crate trained and learning to be respectful in the home..remember I'm only 1 and still have some puppy behavior, such as mouthiness, and will need some work. I'm trying to learn "boundaries" right now, not sure what that means, but I think it means I can't harass my people for attention, sometimes I make my foster family laugh when I do this. My foster mommy says I catch on quickly and with the right family and a little bit of work, will be a little gentleman in no time flat, I have made great progress already in the short amount of time I've been with ABR! I LOVE attention and being with my people...I really can't get enough of it. My foster family said I need a home with a fenced in yard so I can burn off some of my puppy energy and a home where I am not left/crated for long periods, a full-time working family would not be ideal. Right now, I need a home where I can get the attention I need and where I feel safe and loved and work on my basic obedience training. My foster mommy doesn't know how I am with other dogs, but I do bark and pull when I see another one on a walk, I will need work on my leash manners, too. I think in time, I will be fine with other pups once I am settled and get a little more socialization, but I am currently the only pet in my foster home. I love kids and do well with them, but because of my size and energy, I probably would not be well suited for small kids as I may accidentally knock them over until I learn to be very gentle. If you are looking for a big ball of fur that's alot of fun, then mention me on your application. If you are already approved, just email the adoption coordinator and let her know you want to meet Jesse!

Hi! My name is Ava! My foster mom thinks I'm such a sweetie pie and I will find my forever home fast. I've only been at my current foster home for one week now, but so far I'm doing very well. I am very calm and mature for my young age of 2. I don't mind the crate and I haven't had any accidents in my new foster home. My foster mom actually left me free to roam the basement for a few hours on multiple days and I was such a good girl.

I'm becoming more and more comfortable here and my foster mom says I'm slowly coming out of my shell (whatever that means?). I do have a spunky, playful side. My foster fur sister can't play yet due to her surgery, so we'll see how that goes when the time comes.

I sleep in the bed with my human foster sister or in my crate in her room. She's my favorite...shhh! Don't tell her sister!!

I love to go for walks in the neighborhood and I walk pretty good on a leash. I've met one dog and an elementary aged girl while on a walk and did fine with both greetings.

More details to come.

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?

Update on me, DD.  Thought I would let y'all know how I am settling into my new foster home after my heartworm treatment finished.  I am loving playing with ABR Alums Tygger and Shubie.  They are my new 'ears'.  They are teaching me many things. For example, how to bark at the UPS guy.  They are also showing me how to use the doggie door and what I need to do outside – not inside.  I am figuring that out.  They are helping me learn that the crate is good.  We each have our own crates and foster mom gives us tasty biscuits and then we all rest.

I love chewing on the antlers and playing tuggy with the other toys.  Since my heartworm hold is over, I can play more and that has really helped me. I am going to get another check-up by the vet next week and I am going to meet a trainer guy who will help my foster moms "talk to me with their hands".

In addition to learning what hand signals mean, I am learning how to walk on the leash. I love going up to the coffee shop in the neighborhood and hanging out – when it is not too hot. I have met the nicest people there!

So enough about me, now let's talk about you.  This is what will work best for me.  I need a playful energetic fur sister or brother who can be my ears and teach me stuff.  I need my humans to spend lots of time with me to help me build up my confidence in them and me.  My humans need to help out with my ears too.   I am a little needy when I am in a new place, so I look to my humans for assurance and for permission.

I really like the doggie door and the fenced yard here at the foster ranch.  I am getting okay in the crate, but I bark a little when my humans leave…then I go to sleep. I sleep really soundly and am startled when you wake me up too fast. I like chew toys – every one of them in the toy box.  I like to sleep on the bed, but I will go sleep in the crate with a little coaxing. I am the sweetest, gentlest of boxers. I like special foods because some of the regular foods give me allergies.  Oh, I am talking about me again.  Well that's it.

If you have enough time to share with me and you want to laugh, play, snuggle, get licked and help be my ears, put DD on your application.  My foster parents say they think I will be good to go in about 3 weeks once they are sure I am ready for my forever home.

Hi my name is Louie! I know what you are thinking, "Where does he get his hair done?". Well it may be hard to believe, but it's natural! I'm new here to ABR and had a little bit of a rough start. I got to spend my first night with my foster mom, but then the next 2 I had to spend in the hospital due to a bad case of pneumonia, but I'm getting better every day! My foster mom has given me lots of toys to keep me busy, but my favorite by far is any toy I can play tug of war with. I enjoy chasing toys and going for short walks too. I am missing my right front leg, but that does not slow me down much because I am still able to run and use stairs. I love hanging out with my foster mom, playing tug or war, or just lying in the grass. I am potty-trained, know how to sit and stay, and very loving. I do not enjoy the crate and do well having free roam while my foster mom is away. I jump during playtime sometimes so I may not be best for younger children. I am still unfortunately trying to get over this pneumonia so I need to have another month of rest before I can go through my heartworm treatment and be neutered. If you think I would fit in with your family mention me on your application!

Meet Duke! This sweet boy was very scared and afraid of everything when he was at the shelter. It took a little time, but since being in his foster home, he was able to feel safe and start to show more of his winning personality! His foster family said he is very loving, silly and one of the sweetest fosters they've had. Duke is a gentle boy and who listens well, and shows no food or toy aggression. He loves being with his people, giving soft kisses and playing fetch. His foster family tells us he is house and crate trained but he may also be fine with free roam of the house, he is not destructive and has been a perfect house guest. Duke is a young active boy and would love to have a big fenced in yard to run and play in with his new family. Duke has not been too keen on having foster fur brothers so we feel he needs to be the only pet in the home for now and a home with older children would be ideal. Duke is hoping to find his new family soon so hurry and mention him on your application. If you are already approved, just let our adoption coordinator know you want to meet Duke!

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.

Introducing Snoop and Snow Boy - the gentle giants who will steal your heart! These handsome boys are brothers with an unbreakable bond. They have been together since they were puppies and will need to be adopted together. Snoop and Snow Boy came to ABR as owner surrenders due to their family falling on hard times. The family wanted what was best for their boys and reached out to ABR. Snoop and Snow Boy have always been outdoor dogs, but they are adjusting well to their new cozy indoor way of life. They are calm in the house and just want to be near their people and each other. They love getting pets, giving sloppy kisses, playing with the same toy and taking naps together. These sweet boys are a little timid when meeting new people, but they have quickly warmed up to everyone they've met - kids and adults. Snoop is the more confident and easy going of the two, while Snow Boy is more reserved and apprehensive. These boys are great companions and good listeners. They are house trained, crate trained, and enjoy going for rides in the car. They are not too fond of cats and would probably do best as the only dogs in the house. If these big boys sound like the perfect fit for your family, mention Snoop and Snow Boy on your application.

Hi my name is Livingston! I was picked up just roaming around town and in pretty good condition considering. I'm pretty laid back and like to lounge around, but I really enjoy being allowed to roam around outside. I understand that is dangerous so I'm willing to do my roaming either on a leash or in a fenced in backyard-as long as the fence is at least 6ft tall because I do enjoy challenging myself to jump over lower fences. I don't mind being around other dogs or cats and love to give my foster sister smooches all day. I've been working really hard on my manners so I am now house and crate trained. My foster mom says that I am one of the sweetest dogs she has ever met, I'm very gentle, quiet, and have the biggest brown eyes she's ever seen! I would be okay in a house with other pets and any size humans (young and old alike)-where you are is where I want to be, just call me your shadow. I would do best in a home where someone is home most of the day since I do love my humans so much! I think I would make a great companion because I love to go on walks and adventures, but I will also just hang around the house with you too. I would love to meet you and your family if you think we would be a good fit together!!

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?
