Hello, this is Grace, a super sweet and lovable girl who came to ABR as a stray. She was wandering alone looking for a family to take her in and love her. She was pretty worn down when she arrived, very skinny and weak. She is heartworm negative but was determined to have kidney disease. Since being in her foster home, she has had quite the transformation! She started on a special kidney food and getting subcutaneous fluids, she has made tremendous improvements. She is playful with the other dogs in the foster home. She will get toys from the toybox and play on her own or bring over to play with her foster mom. She is house trained, crate trained and very well behaved. She is so calm while getting subcutaneous fluids. When she's very happy, she gives you full wiggle butt. Grace is not overly demanding of attention. She loves to be petted and walked but does not require nonstop attention like some pups. She gets in her bed at night and sleeps until breakfast time. Grace loves her meal times! She must stay on a prescription kidney food and has a phosphate binder powder added to each meal. As long as this regime is followed, she will be the best companion and give you all the unconditional love. Everyone who meets Grace falls in love immediately. It takes a special person to commit to loving and providing for a pet with special needs (kidney disease). If you are Grace's special person and interested in meeting her, please mention her on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and let them know you want to meet Grace.

Lenny is a fun boy that loves his toys. He is a master retriever and walks great on a leash. Lenny came into the rescue with his brother George and both are heartworm positive and will need treatment before available for adoption. Lenny loves to play and does great with other dogs. He is house/crate trained. Lenny is looking for a home with another friendly, playful dog and a fenced in yard would be best so he can get his daily exercise in once he's medically cleared from heartworm treatment. If you are looking for a sweet cuddle companion with lots of love, then mention Lenny on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and let them know you want to be on Lenny's list.

With a face as precious as this how can anyone resist! Otto is such a loving and loyal pup. He's easy going, timid at first but he will quickly warm up to you! He has a magical talent of sensing when you're stressed or upset and always comes to the rescue with a big kiss and hug. Otto does well on a leash and loves to be walked. He doesn't care too much for other dogs but he's not aggressive either! He has not been around any children as there are none in his foster home. He would probably do well with older kids who understand dogs and when to give them space, he is really just a sweet teddy bear. Otto can still be a little unsure about new things so needs a compassionate home that can help him continue to trust and work on his confidence. Otto hardly ever barks but does cry a little when he misses you or needs to go out. BONUS: he is crate trained and house trained! Just say "Otto go in your house" and he listens! Otto will be ready for his forever family soon once he is neutered. What better way than to have Otto welcome you home from a busy day. If Otto sounds like a great fit, then just mention him on your application or if you are already approved, let the adoption coordinator know you would like to be on his list.

Phoebe is only available to a very experienced dog owner with the ability to work on her training long term. She is a little timid and unsure when she first meets new people but warms up quickly. Phoebe would do best in a quieter home as she prefers the simple life of just relaxing and hanging out with her people. She is house and crate trained and also does well with free roam in the house. Phoebe is still working on meeting strangers, she has been through a lot and needs a committed family willing to work with building her confidence and helping her feel secure. She would do best as the only dog as she can be selective with other pups and a home with no cats. Phoebe is looking for a family where she will be spoiled rotten and she can get in as much snuggle time as possible. She will need a home with a fenced in yard where she can run around in delight without worry, and a home without small children. Phoebe would love to find her forever family and is hoping someone is ready to find her! If Phoebe sounds like a good match, please mention her on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and let them know you would like to meet Phoebe!

December

Hi, there! My name is Sinatra, but I prefer the more informal: Frank. When you get a glimpse of my baby blues, you'll understand why I'm named after Ol' Blue Eyes. My foster mom says I'm a total dreamboat. I am a happy and appreciative pup. I like other dogs but I'm really the most interested in hanging with my people. Young, old? Doesn't matter; I'm a fan. I'm a little too interested in kitties, though, so if you have one (or a gerbil or bunny), I might not be your guy. Other than that, I'm pretty easy going most of the time.

Life before coming to ABR was not the easiest for me, so I'm showing a bit of wear and tear. My joint are a little squeaky, and I've got some weakness in my hips, so I can't really rough house with other pups. I struggle on the hardwoods when I first wake up, but once I'm up and moving, I do okay. But when the breeze starts blowing or my fur sister starts running in the yard, I can still put on a good show. A lot of white boxers are deaf, but not me, though I can't really hear very much. Still, if you call my name, I will perk right up. I will be adoptable once I finish my crate rest in December. After that, I'll have some follow up vetting that will be needed, which an ABR representative can talk you through.

I know that I'm supposed to go potty outside, but I came into ABR with some medical issues and am just now able to control my bladder. But I would benefit from a forever home with someone who can let me out a few times per day. I don't really love the crate, but I'm okay behind a baby gate in a small room, and I am trustworthy not to chew your stuff if you leave me.

My dream come true would be a stay-at-home family member or someone who would take me to work. I would love to keep you company and will be so faithful to make sure you never get lost or too far out of my sight (unless I need to catch a short nap). I never bark, except a little in my dreams sometimes, but I can let out the most enchanting snore. (That's just what I've been told.)

I know that I'm a diamond in the rough (or "ruff"), but my foster family can vouch that there is no pup who will show his appreciation for your love more than me. I was a shell of a dog when I was rescued - skin and bones, afraid for my face to be touched and too scared to go anywhere new without being carried. Now, if you show me love, I'll follow you anywhere. Think you might want to love me forever? Ask the adoption coordinator about Sinatra.

Lizzy is a beautiful 3 legged bundle of energy. Having 3 legs has not slowed this girl down, she is still a playful pup with no limitations. This sweet girl loves to cuddle and go for car rides. Lizzy would love an active family that can keep her entertained and also work on some of her doggy manners, she's just your typical silly girl full of energy. She is house / crate trained and can be a little nosey at times (looking on counters, searching for things to get in to) so must have things picked up and/or out of reach until she has learned the house rules. Lizzy is very smart and catches on quickly. She loves playing with her toys and going for walks, she is a very skilled lizard hunter! Lizzy would love to have a family where she could soak up all the attention and would do best as the only dog for now as she can be dog selective, she tends to do better with males. Lizzy has a lot of love to give a special family. She loves all people but may have too much energy for smaller children, she's still has those typical puppy traits. If you are looking for a silly girl with the boxer antics/personality, Lizzy is your girl. Please let us know if you are interested in hearing more or meeting Lizzy.
