Posted Breed: Boxer. Meet Bellina! This beautiful affectionate girl loves to play with tennis balls, is a big snuggler and wants to be right next to her humans!! She has been working hard on getting her girly figure back (she came in to the rescue obese) and is enjoying her time with her canine companions. She has the one ear that sits on top of her head like an ear hat...such a silly lady! She also likes to chill and just wants a family to call her own! Ask to learn more about this sweetie.

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-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Phoenix, AZ
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed. Swoon, this handsome beautiful 3 yr old flashy fawn boxer boy is named Jacoby. He just does not walk, he prances. Although a bit shy and timid at first meeting, he will warm up quickly but would suggest a quiet, calm environment with no children as loud noises and traffic startle him. He sits politely for his treats, is playful and loves affection. Very social with his foster canine buddies and eager to please. With patience and kindness Jacoby will be a great companion for a loving family. He is house trained, okay in crate and has just the right amount of energy for almost any home.

      Posted Breed: Boxer. Big and beautiful, that's our Brownie. Her story is one you've heard before, "unclaimed stray" who found her way to the County Shelter and then found her way to BLR's open arms. Brownie is a big girl, so no young children. She would do best in an active home where she'll get much exercise and especially, lot of affection.

Seems that she is always in a good mood harboring no sadness from what has been surely very scary situations. She is amazing in a home, very quiet, house trained and excellent in the crate. Macchiato can be choosy about her canine companions so would prefer to be the only dog getting all the love in her forever home.

      Location: Phoenix, AZ
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Hi everyone! I'm a tall, dark and handsome brindle boxer boy searching for my perfect forever home. I am through all that puppy stuff and would love a home where I can chill, yet still be active when you are! I have all my basic training down. One of my favorite pastimes is playing fetch and playing in the hose. You will often see me carrying around one of my toys. My current foster can't help but smile when I am so excited to see her and run to the door with a toy. I love to chase birds and rabbits in the backyard. My forever home should be one with alpha leader and a more quiet and mature household. I'd prefer to be the only pup in the house. Otherwise, a submissive female is the best fit. If you are looking for a classic boxer boy please ask for more details!!
