He is currently getting comfy in his temporary foster home in North Carolina and will be seeing the vet very soon to get a bump on his foot looked at. He is amazingly sweet and is great with other dogs. We will post more information after his vet visit and after we get to know him a little better! 12/19 UPDATE: Jerry had surgery yesterday to remove that angry tumor on his foot and he did great!! He will hang out at the clinic for a few days then will head back to his foster home to recover until transport to his new family :)

More About Boxer Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $160.31 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Dolly & Tessa are a bonded pair who found themselves with nowhere to go when their owner passed away. Family members contacted rescue and with a temporary foster offer from one of our Kentucky volunteers we were able to bring them in. Dolly (brindle) is the older of the two girls. She loves nothing more than to lounge around and be with her people. She is 9.5 years old. Tessa (white) still has some puppy energy...she is definitely the most active of the duo. She still loves to run and play and is also very loving and sweet. She is 8 years old. Both of the girls are fully vetted and are good with other dogs and with cats. They have been together since Tessa was a pup and they are truly bonded. They are both on thyroid medication which is fairly inexpensive. FROM THEIR TEMPORARY FOSTER MOM: They're beautiful inside and out. These girls are the complete package! Clever, sweet, active enough for daily play but mature enough to know the value of down time. Great with other animals and hoomans of any variety, and easy peasy when it comes to maintenance! Seriously folks, I've never had better fosters, these girls are AWESOME! 11/3 UPDATE: Dolly's best friend passed away early this morning. We will take the best care of Dolly while she adjusts to life without Tessa.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $374.06 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Colleen and her six puppies were found in rural Alabama and taken to a shelter...and a shelter was no place for this little family to be. They are now with their foster mom, Corinne and are doing well. The vet said the babies are healthy and approximately six weeks old, but mom is heartworm positive. Colleen's is all ready to find a foster home who will be patient with her insecurities in new situations. Life has not been kind to her and she needs some serious love, attention and patience. Colleen is also heartworm positive and will need a quiet home to help her get through treatment. UPDATE: Colleen is settling in at her foster home. She is learning to trust people and even liking her foster fursibling Charley a little more and more each day. THE LATEST: Colleen just tested heartworm negative...her treatment was a success!!! She is ready to move to a longer term foster or adoptive home. She will require very understanding foster or adoptive parents who will help her with her trust issues and will continue her very intensive training. Colleen will do best in a home with no cats, no small dogs or any other small animals. She loves her foster furbrother Charley :)

She is a gorgeous young girl and is as sweet as she is pretty! She is great with other dogs. Izzy's heartworm treatment was delayed due some inflammation in her chest. She will be on some medication for a few weeks then will get rechecked. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers! UPDATE: Izzy's coughing has stopped and she had another check-up and x-rays. The vet doesn't feel like she is healthy enough for heartworm treatment yet. She will continue on her medication and will have a recheck in January.

      Moose

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $374.06 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Moose has been a part of our home since February 2016. He will require a home that can set clear boundaries and work on training at least 20-30 minutes per day. He prefers to be engaged in thinking activities and likes to be the center of attention. All members of the family need to be confident in the ability to hold him to his rules. He is crate trained and loves to go “kennel”. He also has basic commands down pretty well. Grooming activities are easy with Moose. He likes to get a bath and have his nails trimmed. THE LATEST: Moose is a very loving boy that wants to snuggle and be a part of a new family. He doesn’t need constant attention, in fact there are times he likes his “me” time to contemplate his world. He loves to please and is very food motivated to learn. Moose is not the typical boxer in that he LOVES everyone upon meeting them. He likes to take his time with introductions and seeing if you are a “safe” person. Once he sees people as trustworthy, he is a very normal boxer in that he will play and wiggle for you. He is a very smart boy. He is crate trained, knows basic commands, and is handled best by redirecting negative behavior in a positive way. For example, when barking out the window at a person walking their dog he responds better to “Thank you Moose for letting me know. Good boy. Leave it now.” rather than “No, that’s naughty.” He will walk away from the window feeling like he did his job to let me know of possible “danger”. He wants to be seen as a good dog, but he will test some boundaries as all dogs will. The key is to always redirect with something positive. High energy places tend to make him nervous, so he becomes tense and not his usual self. Due to that personality trait, he is not a good candidate for meet and greets. He would love to meet new families in a calm location with slow and short introductions. What Moose Needs Home devoted to taking him to training as soon as possible. It will allow you to bond and communicate with the help of a trainer. He wants to please and learn, so it should be a positive experience for all involved. Home with older children. Moose is still young, and he can be grumpy about things. A home with teenage children where the energy level is calmer would be a best fit. Home with another dog as long as it is submissive. He does well with other dogs, but he tends to be a dominant personality, so a slow introduction with a submissive personality would work best. It would also be good if the other dog was only slightly older than him, so that they could wrestle and play. If he is an only dog, that will be fine as long as if there are new dogs coming into the home, they are more on the submissive side. Home with cat(s) would be OK. He gets along with our cat, but there are times that he will give a good chase for fun. He has never hurt that cat and has assured me that the cat “started it”. Home with a focus on positive reinforcement. Moose is a strong willed dog. He is still very young (2 years old) and is willing to learn new routines, but he will need positive redirection to learn a new household’s expectations. Home that can continue his medication of Proin. While he is on the medication, he has no accidents in the house. If he misses a dose, then there will be accidents. The medication helps to control a bladder issue. The medication is easy to give him; just put it in with his food and it is eaten.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $160.31 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Due to her mom's medical issues, Onyx is being returned to the rescue. Onyx is a former breeder girl who has made huge strides in the past almost two years. THE LATEST: Onyx is still a little timid around some men but has come a long way. She is a very loving lap dog. She loves food and that is the best way to become her friend. She is 10 years old and very healthy. She is also a pocket boxer and only weighs 45 lbs. She is crate trained. She is sometimes still easily scared even by a hand raise, or loud noises, or something falling on the floor and it makes a noise, she may take off running through the house. She is very healthy except we had had issues in both eyes for ulcers. ***All vetting is covered by the rescue while Onyx is in foster care*** Please consider fostering or adopting this gorgeous petite girl!!

      Hoskin - URG...

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $374.06 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Hoskin was not a happy boy at the shelter...the sounds, smells and kennel terrified him. Once out of the kennel and taken outside he was a happy, wiggly playful boy! FROM HOSKIN'S FOSTER FAMILY: Hoskin has finished our 2 week shut down. He plays really well with toys by himself. He sleeps in his crate while we are at work & at night. He is still adjusting to our food, but his coat is much softer! So far, he growls to let us know he needs out in between scheduled times. Hoskin is great with Redford since Redford tends to be more calm. We limit time with Dexter since they try to charge at each other (two alpha male personalities). Hoskin is "on alert" outside. He is extremely fearful of cars, which makes me think his leg was broken from being hit by a car. He does well walking on a leash, but we have only been on our quiet street. He is very fearful of strangers (as neighbors have been out while it was potty time). He does not let his hurt leg slow him down at all. I would suggest a home where he is the only dog or with a submissive female and no small children. His handler has to show Hoskin who is boss. He is a cute wiggle butt and loves to be petted with belly rubs and snuggle time. He is a great dog that just needs continuous training that I'm sure will come in time with trust. Hoskin's foster family will continue to work on his trust and insecurity in certain situations :) THE LATEST: Hoskin has been with us for 6 1/2 weeks now. He has made very good progress with us during that time with severe trust issues. Hoskin is able to interact/play with our dogs, but with supervision at all times. Hoskin is very fearful of any strangers and any loud noises such as loud trucks going by on our street. He lunges at the road. He's a small boxer at 55 lbs, but mighty!! He does not let his deformed leg stop him! He has had a few pee accidents inside when he wakes up - he has to go ASAP! So, I keep my shoes by the door & we have restricted his water after 8pm. He has a great appetite, loves to fetch, plays with toys well, and entertains himself. He chases his own tail! Haha! He loves to snuggle with us at night on our bed. We keep him in the crate while we are at work & fusses for a little while, but settles down. I would suggest training with his furever home members especially if you plan to walk dogs together. Right now, Hoskin goes on walks by himself to diminish overstimulation. We have a fenced in yard, but have not let him off the leash yet as we are still teaching boundaries. (I have a few gardens.) URGENT/UPDATE: We are in URGENT need of a foster home for Hoskin. He is about 4 years old and completely vetted. He is currently fostering with two older Boxer boys who he has had a couple of scrapes with but for the most part has been good with them. Hoskin seems to be a "one person" dog...he trusts and is loyal to one person in the home. He has not been around kids or cats. At this point we would not place him in a home with kids under 18. Hoskin is currently located in Paxton, IL. Please email Lori at lweese99@hotmail.com for more information. Thank you!

      Dempsey - IN...

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $374.06 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Dempsey is a sweet and very affectionate boy who loves to give hugs. He tested well with other dogs, he would probably chase cats. He was adopted and returned after nipping a child while upsupervised after only being in the home for two days. Dempsey is settling into his temporary foster home. He will do best in a home with older children. FROM DEMPSEY'S TEMPORARY FOSTER MOM: Dempsey is a super cute dark brindle boxer boy who we estimate is around 2 years old. He was saved by Across America Boxer Rescue from a shelter working to maintain a no kill status in Lafayette, Indiana. He has spent way too much of his young life confined to a kennel and unsocialized. This cute little peanut needs some work with feeling safe in new situations, and understanding that there will always be enough: love, attention, food, water and time for him from now until forever. He hasn’t figured out the ecstasy of floppy toys or the achievement felt when the last morsel is extracted from a kong! He needs a person who has the time and energy to walk the line between crazy, wild, mouthy, sassy puppy child and refined, sophisticated and mature boxer boy. He is unsure about his place with other dogs, and his previous choices have been to try and dominate the relationship, his foster brothers are veterans with fosters and don’t mind too terribly being bossed around or neglected for a while as the new dog acclimates, a new brother or sister might become jealous and that could create a potential problem. He has concerns about making sure his needs are met, indicating that the pattern has been that they have not been, but he has done well with firm boundaries and a lot of encouragement and reassurance. He bonds VERY quickly with his people and seems to have the view that if he controls the people he controls the resources; which to his credit, is not wrong. (and seriously with that face it works particularly well.) A concern that I have is that he will need slow and thorough introductions with his new house dogs. When he is afraid he gets snarly, which is an unacceptable behavior for any young dog, but he has settled in to our home so much faster than I ever expected!! And I am so proud of him!! He was tethered to me for the first 3 days, learning in my immediate proximity the house rules. We took several walks to help relieve the tension in the house, which worked remarkably well. My old boys got a chance to relax and he used up some of his excess energy and had a resetting sniff. The third day we had some off leash time, but no play was allowed with the boys. He was allowed to play with me, and dare I say it’s been a long time since there has been a puppy in this house and I got boxed a couple of times, so keep your dukes up!! There were still a couple of snarly incidents over visitors and food control. He remains overly interested in the food bowls. He has mellowed about visitors after some practice and management. He has slept in his kennel every night and settles down nicely; he particularly likes Arty Wu meditations while he is settling down for bed (yes, I tried others). The first couple of nights he had some loud and righteous indignation at being confined yet again, but dogs make bad choices and he does not respect the baby gate boundary as of 10/29/16. He loves going for a walk and is the most superb leash walker I have ever had the privilege of fostering! I motion that this would be an EXCELLENT opportunity for crafting a bond in his forever home! He is a very smart boy! A small obedience course would be an amazing exercise for this boy; I suggest having one set up prior to placement and beginning immediately upon arrival. Not only would it provide a bonding experience, but controlled exposure to other dogs doing “their own thing”. The sixth day he was allowed to play with Georgia, because he asked and she expressed interest. He is somewhat overzealous in his play; hard nibbling, lip “biting” (in play, but rough), boxing hard and pouncing. The play was acceptable, but was broken up while it was still a positive experience for both dogs. Dempsey was redirected to play with us and Georgia was sent to get a play facilitator (a toy! J ) There have been several “plays” in the subsequent days and he has been allowed to remain with the boys while I use the bathroom, or while they are sunning in the afternoon. He has maintained and improved his acceptance of them, and they of him. This boy has a bright future ahead of him if his improvement continues on this level! I am incredibly and increasingly hopeful that he has the capacity to make good choices when his needs are consistently being met. We continue to work on: - Using toys to play and not mouthing on hands. - Taking turns getting snacks and waiting in line for the water bowl. - Maintaining patterned feeding schedule and feeding routine to establish feelings of food security - Walking like an absolute boss on the leash 1/6/17 UPDATE: Dempsey will be starting obedience classes with his foster mom and dad.

UPDATE: Gizmo is having some trouble trusting that other dogs want to be his friend. He will be working on settling in with his fursiblings in his temporary foster home.

He is great with people and kids. Very affectionate, cuddles, loves his belly rubbed, crate trained and house trained.
