Posted Breed: Boxer. The dogs shown in this picture are not up for adoption. They are part of the Rockin' P Rescue program. Can you believe that they were found at one of the high-kill shelters?! They were rescued and lived in foster homes until we could find a new family for them. We are in desperate need of quality families in the AL/GA area to temporarily care for boxers waiting for their forever homes. Currently, we are having to turn dogs away from our program because we have nowhere for them to go. This could ultimately mean these dogs will be put to sleep. Fostering a boxer is a truly rewarding experience - please open your door, and your heart, to a boxer in need. If you cannot foster and have a large crate you'd like to donate, please let us know! We can use it to save a life! Send an e-mail to rockinp@microxl.com for more info. Not ready to adopt me? How would you like to be my sponsor?! Our medical bills are at an all-time high and even a $5 donation can help take some of my cousins off the street, treat their wounds and heal their hearts. Please think about a tax-deductible donation today!

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.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Prince Charming's still waiting for his home. Please share his story to help grant his birthday wish!! Prince and his 3 siblings were dumped on the road that leads to the county shelter on a very cold and rainy January day. They were not even taken to the shelter where they would be out of the weather. One of his siblings got hit and killed right in front of him. A very nice older lady gave the remaining babies a warm place to stay for the night and contacted Rockin P to see... if we could help them. She had many dogs and they were elderly. One by one Prince's siblings were adopted. He doesn't understand why no one has picked him. He is sweet and not pushy like his sister and way cuter than his brother. He loves kids and loves to run and play. He loves other dogs. He is house and crate trained so why ??? His birthday is in October and he will turn 1! He wishes that he gets his very own home and family for his birthday! Apply at www.rockinprescue to make his wish come true!!! My adoption fee is $100.00 because I have a sponsor.

      Location: Jacksonville, AL
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Lily is a courtesy post for the Animal Shelter in Anniston, AL. She is a boxer mix who is desperately looking for a home of her own. Rockin P heard her story and wanted to try to help find this girl a home of her own. She is a little bit shy at first but warms up after a little bit and is the sweetest girl. The shelter staff loves her and says that she is the foster mom to all the shelter puppies. They put the babies with her and she treats them like her own babies. She cleans up after them and makes sure they are okay. She loves them and then she has to watch as they go on transport to other rescues or homes and she is left at the shelter. Can you please give Lily a home of her own so that she does't have to continue to watch her babies leave her behind??? She is spayed and up to date on vaccines. Her adoption fee is only $100.00. Please contact Rockin P Rescue or Shelly at shelly@bamalegal.com to ask about Lily. Please visit Rockin' P Rescue, Inc. to submit an online adoption application. Not ready to adopt me?

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Chelsea was found by an older couple when she was very pregnant. They took her in and took care of her while she had her puppies. They were able to find good homes for her babies and even found a home for her but she really wanted to stay with the older couple and ran away from her new home and back to them. Because of health issues they were unable to keep her so she is in a Rockin P foster home and is awaiting heartworm treatment. She is about 5 years old and a very laid back. She has a gentle soul and would be a great companion to someone looking for a pal and live a quiet life. She is house and crate trained. We will update when she is has had her heartworm treatment and is ready for her new home. If you are interested in Chelsea just mention her on your application. We would love to have her home waiting for her when she is healthy!!! This dog is being fostered near Gadsden, AL.
