Apollo

Apollo was picked up stray and never claimed by a local shelter and wasn't doing well in the kennel environment. Apollo is approximately 6 years old and a very good boy.  He gets along with big dogs, little dogs and cats!

 

We quickly determined his thyroid was low and started him on medication which he will need to take his entire life.  As far as ailments go, this is an easy and inexpensive one to have.  Literally pennies a day!

 

Please consider giving this gem of a dog a home!

  --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dodge

Dodge came to us from a small town shelter.  We are guessing him to be around 16 months old.  He gets along well with cats and is respectful of them.  Dodge is still learning about sharing, but is doing better with his resident foster sister.  He loves to cuddle and is crate trained and house trained.  Dodge is finally healed from a complication with his neuter and is ready for his forever home!  A physically fenced yard and public, group obedience class will be required to adopt him.

Ruby

Ruby came to us with Suki and Stanley.  She is approximately 2 years old and came to us from a hoarding situation.  She is a very tiny girl and incredibly sweet dog, but slightly timid due to her lack of socialization and exposure to normal life situations. 

 

Of the three dogs, Ruby is the more outgoing and she is doing very well in her foster home.  She loves to snuggle and wants to be with you, which is pretty amazing, considering the circumstances she came from.  Ruby was living in a barn with multiple other animals.  Surprisingly, her housetraining skills are pretty good.  Ruby is also doing well with crate training.

 

Ruby is in a foster home with a cat and so far doing very well with him.

 

Ruby has also had very little interaction with younger children and it would probably be best if she went to a home with older children.

 

She gets along wonderfully with the foster Boxers in her home and is generally a happy girl who has GREAT potential!

   --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stanley

Stanley came to us with Suki and Ruby.  He is approximately 2 years old and came to us from a hoarding situation.  Stanley is fairly small and an incredibly sweet dog, but REALLY timid due to his lack of socialization and exposure to normal life situations. 

 

Of the three dogs, Stanley is the most timid and is going to take some work to get to that "normal" crazy Boxer stage.

 

Stanley does love to snuggle and wants to be with you, which is pretty amazing, considering the circumstances he came from.  Stanley was living in a barn with multiple other animals.  His housetraining skills need a lot of work.  He is doing well with crate training.

 

Stanley is in a foster home with a cat and so far doing very well with him.

 

Stanley has also had very little interaction with younger children and it would probably be best if he went to a home with older children.

 

He gets along wonderfully with the foster German Shepherd in his home and is generally a happy girl who has GREAT potential!

Suki

Suki is approximately 2 years old and came to us from a hoarding situation. She is a very tiny girl, only 32 lbs. Suki is an incredibly sweet dog, but timid due to her lack of socialization and exposure to normal life situations. She is slowly exploring the house and has even picked up a toy (but quickly put it back down). She loves to snuggle and wants to be with you, which is pretty amazing, considering the circumstances she came from. Suki was living in a barn with multiple other animals, so her housetraining skills need work, but she does pretty good. She is also learning about crate training and again, doing pretty well in this area.

Suki is in a foster home with a cat, but really hasnít had any encounters with the cat. Right now we feel she will be o.k. with a cat, but that might change as she gets more confidence, etc.

Suki has also had very little interaction with younger children and it would probably be best if she went to a home with older children to limit anxiety for her.

She gets along wonderfully with the foster Boxers in her home and is generally a happy girl who has GREAT potential!

Suki may never be 100% normal and it may take her awhile to get to the point where normal every day stuff doesnít bother her.

Zena

Check out this lovely senior lady! Zena was picked up stray in a tiny town and no one claimed her. She gets along well with other dogs, but not so much with the kitites! Please consider giving this sweet senior gal a home of her own!

All rescue boxers are dogs in need, however there are unique cases where a Boxer may need a special home and/or care. They are Boxer through and through and deserve a chance at a great life and the love of a great companion. Could you be that home?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

STILL WANTING TO SEE MORE?

There are lots of Great Boxers looking for homes. If you are interested in seeing more Boxers in need of good homes, would like to complete an online application to adopt a Boxer, would like to help out by sponsoring a boxer or making a donation to Boxer Rescue, check out the MidWest Boxer Rescue association website. This site shows the group effort taken by Boxer rescue organizations throughout Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska who work together to rescue and place dogs in loving, permanent homes. All these groups operate as not-for-profit entities, and each has particular requirements for prospective homes. The purpose of this coalition, known as the MidWest Boxer Rescue Association, is to help people in the Midwest U.S. find a Boxer to adopt and to coordinate the rescue and care of dogs in need.
