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: Bulldog (short coat). UDPATE - Humphrey is ready for his new home! He is finished with his heartworm treatment. He would do best in a home with a female furfriend (he doesn't like males very much) or even do fine as an only dog. He loves the attention of his Human LOL. He loves to play and still thinks he is a lap dog. Please mention Humphrey on your application! He will make a great addition to the right family! Humphrey Update: He is settling in his foster home and gets along with all the other dogs, small and large. He is about 4 years old. He wants to be a lap dog but 56 lbs is a bit much for a lap. LOL. He DOES NOT like the cats in his foster home so no one with cats need apply. :( He is learning how to act in the house and doing great with his house and crate training. He will start heartworm treatment shortly. We will update as he starts his treatment. Ask about Humphrey on your application. This dog is being fostered near Anniston, AL.

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Update on Barrett: He is walking around now!! We are so very proud of him. He has some nerve damage so is still not in control of his bowels or urination but we are hoping that with time this will heal. He is an awesome boy! Meet Barrett a 2 yo boxer boy that needs our help!! Yesterday he was hit by a car and left on a busy highway. The Anniston police called us at the clinic because he had our rabies tag on. We called the owner but it was the wrong number. We called the emergency contact which was his son and he said that the owner died and they buried him the day before. He said the dog was staying at the men's rehab house and gave us another number. We called the rehab and they said he got loose from the chain. We discussed his status and they decided that it would be best for them to surrender him. His pelvis is displaced and has punctured through the muscle causing bleeding, his bladder/ kidneys are bruised so there is bleeding when urinating, and he has places on his face. He seemed out of it yesterday and some today so hoping and praying that there is no head injury. He will have to have 4-6 weeks of complete cage rest. No putting weight on the pelvis. He is on fluids and in alot of pain. He has pain meds and antibiotics. If you can help with Barrett's medical expenses we would appreciate it! This dog is being fostered near Jacksonville, AL.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Little Bit is a female boxer around 6 months of age. She will be getting her vet work complete this week. She came in from a shelter and we don't know her history but it must not be very good as she is so scared of people. We are working hard with her and she doesn't try to bite but she is just so scared. Once you pick her up or put her in your lap she just melts and likes being held and petted. She loves the other dogs in her foster home and they help give her confidence. This is one poor girl that I would love to know what happened in her short little life. She is very petite at only about 20 lbs an not really under weight. We will update as we continue to work with her.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Little Ms Bindi was returned to Rockin P. We are so sad for her. She went to a home where she had no other doggie friends and things didn't go very well because she loves her fur brother and sisters. She is now 7 months old and has grown into a lovely girl! She needs a home with other dogs and even loves the cats in her foster home. She is shy so needs someone that has patience with her while she adjust to her new home. Please let us know if you would think Bindi would be a good fit for your home. Previous story - She is an 10 week old boxer mix baby. She is doing great with her house and crate training. She stays in a crate all night without any problems. She is a very smart little girl. She loves her foster brothers and sisters and they play all the time. She is getting to know the CAT and doing pretty good. She has been spayed and is now ready for her new home. She is doing wonderful on her housetraining and knows how to sit and can stay for a short time. She is being fostered near Anniston, AL.

      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.
