Meet Zeus! This sweet boy is a total love bug that loves to bury his head in your lap. Zeus has spent a little time in a foster home, but most of his time has been in boarding. In his short time in a foster home, we know that he is well mannered and appears to be house/crate trained. He does well with the senior, well mannered boxer in his foster home. He will need a little work on the leash as he does tend to pull and likes to chase squirrels. Zeus would love to be your New Year's date and celebrate many more with you. He's not one that needs much, but hoping the new year will bring him a family. If you are interested in learning more about Zeus, just mention him on your application or if you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on his list!

Naughty or Nice? Most definitely on the nice list! Sweet Penelope is looking for a special home. She's currently recovering from heartworm treatment and will be ready right after the New Year! Penelope is a special needs boxer due to her being deaf. This does not interfere with her loving and playful personality. She is such a sweet and smart girl, she's catching on quickly! Penelope walks well on the leash and is house and crate trained, although she doesn't like being in the crate, away from her people, but will settle in after a few minutes. She would do best in a home where she is not left for long periods of time, a stay at home or work from home family would be great. Penelope would do best with older kids (teens) and as the only pup for now until she has had time to settle into a home and learn her new environment. This girl is a lover and loves to snuggle. She can be easily overstimulated in new places, so a more relaxed home would be perfect for her. If you sound like the perfect match, just mention Penelope on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on her list.

Lilly

Meet Lilly! This sweet girl has been a little mystery! We can't quite figure her out. She is a sweet and funny girl! She is timid with new things/people and may take a little time to warm up and trust. She loves playing with her toys, but likes to party in private. We've caught her living it up on the camera but as soon as you want to join in on the fun the party stops. Every now and then, she'll let you join in on the fun!

Lilly came into the rescue with another pup who has since been adopted. Unfortunately, due to Lilly's heartworm status, she's been undergoing treatment these last couple of months and finally near the end!

Lilly is good with kids but we have not tested her with other dogs yet due to her heartworm treatment. She may do well with another well mannered fur-sibling but also happy being the only one soaking up all the attention.

Lilly is a little quirky but that's part of her cute personality and makes her adorable. She's not one for dog parks or urban living. Lilly is looking for a more quiet environment with a fenced in yard and someone home often as she loves having the company of her humans. Lilly is house and crate trained, although sometimes doesn't love being in the crate.

We can't wait for Lilly to be healthy and start her new life with a special family. If that is you, just mention Lilly on your application. If you are already approved email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on her list.

Al is the sweetest gentleman that found himself at the shelter through no fault of his own. He is a very loving and affectionate soul. He seems to do very well around other dogs and people he has met thus far.

He LOVES to be near his people, but is not overly needy. Al is content to lay on his dog bed and take a nap near his foster mom while she works at home. He also has done very well when left alone to free roam in the house. He's housebroken and not destructive at all.

Al loves leashed walks in the neighborhood during the cooler hours of the day and walks very well on a leash, he's really a great, well mannered guy. Al would do best in a home without too many stairs and where someone is home often as he really enjoys the companionship. Even though Al is 11, he's in great health. He does have some skin issues that we feel may be allergy related since leaving his home but doing much better since he received a cytopoint injection at our vet's office. If you think sweet Al is a good fit for your family, please mention him on your application or let the adoption coordinator know you'd like to be on his list if you are already approved. This guy deserves to spend his golden years in the comfort of a furever home...lets make that happen!

Hello, Rosie here....just wanted to stop in and introduce myself...again. I was adopted last year but now back with ABR. I have what some call a prey drive for small dogs/cats so it made walking difficult for my foster family. I lived with an older family and loved having them around alot. Because of my return, the rescue folks say I need a home with a fenced yard so there is no worry of encountering little dogs or cats. I'm a pretty low maintenance gal. I like to eat, sleep and repeat. Sometimes I get spunky and like to play with my toys. I can easily entertain myself and like to lay on my comfy bed....I can't wait to do that in my forever home. My foster mom had to leave to go help people who were affected by Hurricane Ida so now I'm in boarding....I don't know when she will return so I am hoping to find a foster or furever home. I am house trained and do well with free roam in the house, no destructive behavior. I would do best in a home without small children (teens would be great). I am also looking for a home as the only pet. I like to have my humans all to myself and give you lots of cuddles and kisses in return. If you are looking to add a gal like me to your life or would like to foster me while I wait for a forever family, just mention Rosie on your application.

Meet Sasha! You might recognize Sasha as she was recently posted with her adorable brood, but this Mama is done raising her pups and ready to soak in all the love from a family of her very own! Sasha is a lover to all humans big and small…seriously; you won't meet a sweeter girl! She is the perfect mix of chill with just enough sass to let you know she is there. Sasha just lays around in whatever room you are in, but she lets you know when she would like some attention. She doesn't get on the furniture unless invited and she loves her crate and dog bed. Don't let Sasha's age fool you, she is still a spunky girl and loves to play in short stints. She still has some zoomies left in her, so she would love a backyard to run and sunbathe. A fence is not necessary for Sash because she does not wander far and listens very well. Sasha is dog friendly but would also do great as an only dog, as she mostly just cares about her people. 

Sasha's foster family happens to think she is pretty much the perfect pup and would love to see her go to a family that adores her as much as they do. If she sounds like your perfect match, just mention her on your application. If you are already approved, let the adoption coordinator know you would like to be on her list.

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.

Mason

Mason

~5 Years

Male

~48 lbs

Natural / Docked

January

Mason 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, Mason 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. Mason 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. Mason 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 Mason 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. Mason 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 Mason 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.
