Beck is a middle aged gentleman that still has a lot of spunk. He is house trained and knows a lot of tricks like sit, lay down and shake. Beck gets along well with other dogs, big and small. His foster mom doesn't have any cats but he loves chasing squirrels and birds so a house without kitties would likely be best for him. Beck doesn't mind the crate and will go right in with a treat. He hasn't been left for more than a few hours as his foster works from home but he does sleep in the crate at night with no issues. Beck has not been kid tested but we think he would do well with kids as he is very gentle and does not jump. Beck would do well in any type of environment.

Meet Sweet Pea! This little girl has been working hard in hopes of finding a furever home. Sweet Pea came to the rescue a year ago, when she was scared and very sick. She spent some time in the hospital being treated for pneumonia before going to a foster home where she had time to recover and get healthy. Sweet Pea acclimated well in her foster home, showing her fun and silly personality, enjoying her walks and learning to live the good life. After some time though, her foster dad noticed she would show some protective/reactive behavior when meeting strangers. With the pandemic, and a lack of opportunity to socialize/train, it became difficult for Sweet Pea to be with anyone outside of her foster home. Due to changing circumstances having nothing to do with Sweet Pea, her foster was no longer able to keep her. So we decided to take the opportunity and send Sweet Pea to one of our partner trainers for evaluation and their board/train program. Sweet Pea has been at the facility for 9 months now, mainly due to not having an available foster home for her to go to who could continue her training classes. Sweet Pea's trainer feels she is ready to start her search for a family of her own. Sweet Pea has bonded well to her trainers, giving lots of kisses and play-bows.

Sweet Pea has a big heart in that little body, and once she bonds, you have a furever friend for life! This little gal is unsure when meeting new people (can be reactive) so is looking for a home without a lot of guests and/or social activities. She will need a committed person who will take things slow, recognize when she is uncomfortable and continue to work on her training exercises. Sweet Pea would prefer a quieter home and as the only 4-legged love in your life. She loves to go on walks and would need someone moderately active that could give her all the mental and physical stimulation she craves.

We are committed to helping families start off on the right paw and will offer training assistance during Sweet Pea's acclimation to her new home. We hope this sweet girl can find the home of her dreams and live a lifetime of happiness. If you are Sweet Pea's match, please mention her on your application at www.atlantaboxerrescue.org.

Meet Amelia! This sweet girl is looking to live out her golden years in the lap of luxury. Before coming to ABR, Amelia lived her life stuck in a backyard having puppies. She deserves nothing but the best from here on out!

Amelia is one of the most vocal dogs we have ever had. She talks to let us know she's hungry, she talks to let us know she's ready for her walks, and she loves to let us know when she's ready to snuggle up and take a nap. Be prepared for a lot of conversations with this girl!

Amelia does have some separation anxiety and would do best with a home where she is not left alone for long periods of time. Amelia is house trained and does well left to free roam. She is kennel trained but being left in the kennel causes her a lot of unnecessary stress. She does not like it, and she will tell you!

Amelia would be happiest in a home with older children that understand her deafness, and the fact that she can startle easily. She's been known to snap if she's startled awake. Amelia lives with three other dogs and two cats. She does not play and has no interest in playing with the dogs and ignores the cats. She would love a low energy dog that will snuggle and nap with her. She is all about the naps!

The best way to describe Amelia is to say that she is an experience! She talks to us, loves sitting in laps, is goofy, silly and just a lovebug. She loves being with her people, loves getting pets and hugs and kisses, and loves curling up in laps for a nap. If you need a retired professional snuggler, please put Amelia on your application!

Belle is your typical young boxer with a fun and loving personality! She's a sweet girl that can be a little timid and nervous initially and needs a family that will take things slow allowing her some time to acclimate to a new home. Belle loves everyone and is all about getting lots of love and attention. She loves playing with her toys, but is always ready to snuggle up on the couch beside you!

While she has done well with her fur-siblings in her foster home, she has not been as lucky adjusting to other dogs outside the home, so she'd probably do best where she can be the one and only pup soaking up all the love for herself.

Belle will need a fenced yard (5 ft or higher) so she can do zoomies and get her boxer energy out. She is house trained and has shown no destructive behavior in her foster home. Belle would not do well with a full-time working family as she craves companionship. She loves people and just wants to be near.

If you are looking for a fun, sweet love bug, Belle might be your girl! Just mention Belle on your application. Already approved? Ask the adoption coordinator to add you to her list.

Sweet Dufner was adopted from ABR when he was born into the rescue 7 years ago. We knew mom was a boxer but no idea who dad was, but we assumed a Lab (which makes Dufner a Boxador)! Dufner lived in his previous home with another boxer and loved going on trips to the beach, playing fetch, and enjoying life. Unfortunately, when his new skin siblings made their arrival 6 years later, all this change made him anxious and unsure. His previous family did all they could (even medication) to help Dufner be more relaxed, but with two new babies under two, they wanted Dufner to be in a home where he could feel comfortable. Dufner was brought back to the rescue about 6 weeks ago and has been doing great in his foster home. His foster mom said he is a delight and loves to entertain himself with his toys. He has been a great house guest and is house and crate trained and does well with free roam. She said he loves to walk, does well on the leash and listens well (knows basic commands too). He is affectionate and loves getting lots of rubs, and will greet you as if you have been gone for days! Dufner is still an energetic pup with lots of love and companionship to give a special family. He is looking forward to sharing his life with a special furever family...could that be you? If Dufner sounds like a great match, just mention him on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on his list.

Prince

Prince

~5-7 Years

Male

~55 lbs

Natural / Docked

Now

Prince is a sleek handsome brindle athlete, a fast runner and lover of toys. He prefers ALL toys to be outside of the toy box offering quick assistance to remove them if attempts are made to organize them in one place. He's content entertaining himself but loves to play with people; he gets pumped! As such, Prince would do best in a home that will enjoy his energetic boxer play: excited hopping and bouncing around, boxing, toy pounces, play bows and butt wiggles. Do you like to play chase even if you have no chance at winning? Feel like getting on the ground and rolling around? He's ready!

He is a mouthy one and will make every attempt to root out your hands for play (clearly this has been a rewarding manner of play for him previously). He is easily enough corrected, just needs the reminders. If he catches your hand or finger during play, he knows it and will respond appropriately by not biting down/releasing pressure. This does not guarantee an unscathed finger!

Prince is leash trained and does well on neighborhood walks. A fenced-in yard is ideal as he is a talented sprinter and too sensitive to some noises to not have physical boundaries. His instinct is to flee and if spooked, supported by his strong, muscular legs, he will be gone in short order.

Prince needs someone experienced enough to anticipate or recognize moments of anxiety and patient enough to get him through it. He is not a dog for boarding. We, his foster family, suspect a stint in the shelter followed by a few days in a vet's office kennel was a traumatic experience for him. He does not do well in vetting environments and needs to be handled with patience and appropriate accommodations. This may extend to other chaotic or scary environments.

Prince would prefer a home with someone home all or most of the time, and no small children. He has not been left without a human since coming to our home yet he is anxious whenever either of the adults leave the house. Not over anxious or hyper stressed, just alert and faithfully standing by waiting for the return.

Prince is crate trained. He is not possessive of food, toys or people. His feelings on cats are unknown. He has done very well with our older male boxer who does not have the best manners. Though he is not a threat to Prince, he does take notions to stop Prince from zooming around playing or getting attention; Prince ignores the older dog's rude behavior.

Though energetic and subject to a couple of anxieties, he is ultimately a pretty chill guy. Prince has fun boxer energy that makes us laugh daily. He is one of the easiest dogs we've ever fostered.

Oh Trooper with the sweetest little face! And the sweetest personality to match. He loves short walks around the neighborhood, rolling on the grass and lots of snooze fest! He also likes to show off his little bounce when he's feeling a little frisky. He seems a bit shy at first, but warms up when you give him bacon. Being a lil older gentleman, he would probably prefer a house with very little to no stairs. While he gets along with his foster brother, his foster mom has not tested him with kids or smaller/younger pets quite yet. He seems house and leash trained. Crate has not been tested yet but will more than likely be okay as free roam.

Ellie is your typical sweet and sassy older gal. She's a bit of a talker and will let you know when she needs something like a cuddle, food, go outside or just pay attention to her! Some of you may remember Ellie from several months ago when she came to ABR with an almost 8 lb tumor on her side. One of our amazing vets at Paces Ferry Veterinary Clinic performed the surgery to remove it and she's been in recovery all this time waiting for the incision site to completely heal, with the help of Vetrix (a type of skin graft). Poor Ellie had to spend the first 8 weeks after surgery in medical boarding getting multiple bandage changes during the week, then was allowed to go to a foster home on the weekends. She was finally discharged a few weeks ago and enjoyed the much needed freedom in a loving home environment! Ellie is house and crate trained and also does well with free roam. She has done well with the children she has met, as well as the dogs she has encountered. She is a very sweet girl that is looking for a companion to live out her golden years. Ellie has been through so much and we hope we can find her a home where she never has to worry about leaving again. She's one tough cookie and we know she will bring lots of happiness to a special family.

Mason (affectionately called "Archie" by his foster parents) was found as a stray in Atlanta and waiting for help at a local shelter. He came to ABR very thin and with a bad upper respiratory infection. He's gaining weight and has since recovered from his infection, but unfortunately we found out he has Cardiomyopathy. He is taking daily medication to help with his diagnosis which he will continue to take the rest of his life. Because of this condition, Archie may have a limited life span...but we never know what his future holds. He would do best in a less active home as he shouldn't run or get too much exercise though he can be a normal pup and enjoy moderate walks and playing with his toys. He has a few more follow up vet visits and we will be getting a few lumps checked out to ensure he's healthy for adoption...that's the bad news. The good news is that he is super adorable and he has a great personality. He will "talk", play with stuffed toys or a ball and he loves his crate. Even though he has free roam in his foster home, he prefers his crate and is often relaxing or sleeping in it. Archie is house trained and walks gently on a leash. He only pulls if he is excited about a car ride. He is on the smaller side and probably could gain a few more pounds. He has the cutest underbite which shows one tooth sticking out at times, you can't help to fall in love with him. Archie seems to take more to women than men, though he is fine with his foster dad, it took a little while for him to come around. It may take slow introductions to new men before he is comfortable. He and his foster fur brother, have become great friends, they enjoy each others company. He's a great little companion that makes his foster parents laugh and Archie easy to love. He would do well in the home of an older woman or couple, retiree, quieter home. He's really an easy dog to care for and doesn't require much except love. Archie will bring lots of joy to a special family for whatever length of time he has left on this earth. We are optimistic that with the appropriate home, vet care and medicine, he will have many happy years. If Archie sounds like a match for you, just mention his name on your application. Or is you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on his list.
