Posted Breed: Boxer. Meet Kiva! This sweet gal is learning how to be a pet (no more babies for this young girl....sigh). She is super sweet and chill. Enjoying her evening walks and getting much better on leash (she will stop when you stop and look up for her command to start heeling again). She waits to exit the crate and has learned this is her safe place. She is eager to please and is becoming more confident and comfortable every day with her foster parents. Ask to learn more about Kiva, she is a keeper!!!

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.

      Pinky

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer. Everyone dreams of the pup that curls up beside you in companionship and this adorable moppet may just be the world’s best little snuggle bug. Pinky is cautious meeting new people but he bonds better than super glue once he knows someone. Like many deaf dogs he likes to stay close to his people so he doesn't worry where you are or that he is alone. Pinky does know some basic hand signs and is pretty attentive so communication is easy. Pinky would also appreciate a canine companion to pal around with and help his confidence. Currently he enjoys a few Boxer play bouts each day with his foster sister and would gladly chase her around to steal her toys if she allowed it. Most days Pinky is pretty laid back and more interested in a good belly rub than going for a walk much less more vigorous exercise. If hanging out with a furry friend and a good book or show is your speed make sure you ask about Pinky. Often the heart can hear more clearly for the lack of noise.

      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!!

      Posted Breed: Boxer. You're going to love this hamball. He's a super sweet, smart, eager to please, crazy puppy that is just feeling his way through life! We've been working on sit, down, off and no. He wants to be a good boy and is now beginning to learn what that means. He loves kids and bonds quickly with his humans. He is not a fan of the crate but deals with it after a vocal display and knows the doggie door like a champ. He's all puppy and loves to romp and play with other dogs and is super social. He is young and intelligent and with proper guidance and additional training will be a great addition to any family
