Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Our total lovebug TOMMY This is Tommy, he is in Riverside CA and is estimated to be somewhere around 6-7 years old. Tommy desperately needs a foster or forever home. He enjoys going on walks and gets along with small and larger dogs with proper introductions. Tommy is on pain medication for an old injury to his front right leg and does have some osteoarthritis of his elbow. He will need to go to a home without cats. Due to his leg injury, navigating stairs can be challenging for him. He loves sleeping at the foot of your bed on his own comfy dog bed. He is a mellow boy and uses a doggie door to go outside. Tommy loves his people and would excel in a home where his people are around a lot and can take him on short walks. He is a total love bug. Please will you open your home for Tommy? www.westcoastboxerrescue.org/adopt/app If you are interested in this dog, please read our adoption process and fill out an adoption application here: http://www.westcoastboxerrescue.org/adopt/.

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: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Cory Needs A Special Forever Home Do you remember Cory's story from last year? Cory came to West Coast Boxer Rescue on July 7, 2015, almost dead, unable to walk or eat on his own. Emaciated with mange, foxtails in his body, open wounds, skin infection, bone infection, systemic infection of his lung, liver and infection in his heart (endocarditis). And now after 9 months of treatment he is recovered and ready to go to his forever home. What is remarkable about Cory is his body's ability to heal, but also you would NEVER guess from his personality he went through a severe neglect in his life. He loves and trusts humans, very affectionate and attentive. He loves to cuddle on the sofa or in bed with people and dogs. He loves to play with other dogs too. There isn't a mean bone in his body. Cory knows to sit and ask nicely for his meals, and is also potty trained. He can walk nicely on the leash once he calms down. Cory knows his name and will come when he is called. Cory is very energetic and will definitely benefit from basic obedience training. We estimate Cory to be about 1 1/2 years old. He weighs about 62 lbs. There are couple of things about Cory you should know. He has a little bit of separation anxiety/barrier frustration and does not do well in a crate for a long period of time (he gets crated up to 5 hours 2 times a week in his foster home). He will also need to take 2 types of heart medications for the rest of his life. It is recommended his heart gets checked out by a cardiologist once a year. Here is a video of Cory you can view to see what he looks like when he came to our rescue and his journey partway to his recovery: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7x7mvE6L3y4. Won't you open up your heart and your home to this very special boy and give him the love and the care he deserve for the rest of his life? He is an amazing, sweet boy. If you are interested in Cory, please read about our adoption process and fill out the application. Once the application is received our volunteer will contact you: http://www.westcoastboxerrescue.org/adopt/. Thank you!

She is a small girl, only weighing around 40 lbs. Missy is a wiggly fun girl, full of energy and ready to play. She is great with people.

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Gracie was adopted from us when she was 3 or 4 months old, but was returned to us a few weeks ago. Gracie is about 2.5 years old and about 65 lbs. She is a boxer mix, with a longer nose and beautiful natural tail. The longer nose allows her to handle this triple digit weather better than the "smash" nose dogs, and the longer tail helps to communicate with other dogs better. Gracie did fine in her adoptive home but as she matured, she wasn't getting along with the other small household dog. We have been working with and evaluating Gracie the last few weeks. Gracie is a friendly, excited, playful girl. She is good with people, but can get jumpy and little mouthy when she is excited. (She would not be good with toddlers or small children). She is good with calm dogs, better with males. Gracie is not aggressive, but if confronted by an aggressive dog, she will likely react like most dogs would. Gracie will be best in a home with a large male dog. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Gracie, please read about our foster/adoption process and fill out the application. Once the application is received our volunteer will contact you:http://www.westcoastboxerrescue.org/adopt/. Thank you.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Diego was rescued about a year and a half ago from San Bernardino City Shelter. He was adopted to a family pretty quickly, but sadly it did not work out. Diego was loved by dad and kids, but mom was not on board. Diego was surrendered back to us shaking and scared. Diego is a stunning boxer mix, with beautiful green eyes and gorgeous markings. He is about 2.5 years old and weighs about 70 lbs. He is in good shape, but like most of us could lose a few lbs. Diego would love a home where he gets lots of exercise as well as affection. He is good with people and other dogs. Like many dogs, Diego can be reactive with other dogs when he is on a leash. He's a strong dog so would do best with a confident leader who will work with him on his leash skills. He also seems to like water so would enjoy having a sprinkler or kiddie pool to play in during the summer. Welcome Diego! .

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Bulldog (short coat). Linc came from Stockton last year on September 6. He was skinny and had horrible skin condition that was later diagnosed as sebaceous adenitis. He was also diagnosed with luxating knee caps that was cutting into his ligaments and an injury to Achilles tendon. With the help of West Coast Boxer Rescue volunteers and supporters he went through surgery for his knees and stem cell therapy for Achilles and surgical sites which also helped heal his skin. It took weeks to see improvements for his skin, but the change has been nothing short of being awesome. Linc is an amazing dog - a perfect gentleman. He is great with other dogs, sweet, calm, gentle and walks nicely on leash for the most part. He is even ok with cats. He loves people and loves to be pet. Linc is probably about 2 years old and weights about 48 lbs. Because of his skin condition, he needs a rub down with olive oil/water solution, let that sit for 1-2 hours, then a bath to wash that off every 1-2 weeks. He also has eye issue and needs eye medication administered few times a day. Following items need to be considered if you are interested giving him a forever home (medical is covered for foster home): - His knees and Achilles has healed and he has been given a clean bill of health by his surgeon. - His tear production isn't good. He will need eye ointment few times a day for the rest of his life probably. - Sabaceous adentitis is an autoimmune disease. This is only the 3rd case this has been treated with stem cell, oldest case being 2011. - It is likely that he may need future stem cell dose. Because there are only 2 cases prior we don't know how often. The case that is recorded with VetStem utilized stem cell once every 1-2 years. - There is an annual stem cell banking charge with Vet Stem. You can read more about it here: https://www.vet-stem.com/cellbanking/ - Each treatment of stem cell is going to cost around $500, depending on the veterinarian. There is one dose left at VetStem. - After the remaining 1 dose, the stem cell need to be re-cultured with one-time fee of $750 - $1000 (may require additional cost from your vet). - There are ways to manage sabaceous adentitis without the stem cell. If you are interested in Linc, please read about our adoption process and fill out the application. Once the application is received our volunteer will contact you: http://www.westcoastboxerrescue.org/adopt/. Thank you.
