Posted Breed: Boxer / American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Sweet Chloe was picked up on the streets of Chicago...scared, starving and injured. Her eye is looking and feeling much better and she is getting lots of love, TLC and good food in her foster home. Chloe is good with other big dogs, she does not do well with cats or with small dogs. She is a lovable girl. She runs up to you wiggling and can't wait to roll over and show her tummy. Chloe is housebroken and crate trained. She does seem to have some vision issues with her previously injured eye but it doesn't slow her down!

More About Bulloxer 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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $374.06 including all applicable MN sales tax. Milo, now known as Chester was adopted as a puppy and is being returned to the rescue. He is just over 1.5 years old and is completely vetted. He has been around some other dogs and gets along well with them. He is young but is a big boy and doesn't always know his size. UPDATE: Chester wil be moving to his new Minnesota foster home. He has learned some habits that need to be corrected and he is in need of some socialization with other people and dogs and also in need of some training and obedience classes. His foster family will be working with him to get him all ready for his furever home. THE LATEST: Milo has moved from intensive board & train and into a training and boarding situation where he will receive more socialization. He is still in URGENT need of a foster home, preferably with no other dogs or with only one dog. He has made great strides in his training with other dogs but will still need some help especially with integrating back into a home. Milo did fanastic at the vet today receiving updated vaccines and getting his nails trimmed. He continues to be wonderful with people. He also did very well in the presence of other dogs, giving us hope that he is dog selective and can possibly live with another dog. Milo sits, shakes, and lays down when you ask. He His foster family will need to continue to work with him on his training, manners and living with another dog. Please consider fostering or adopting Milo!!

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $160.31 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Kilo's former life consisted of life on a chain. He was terrified and confused at the shelter but his rescue angel Peggy saw the good in him :) Kilo is getting settled into his Kentucky foster home and it is so far, so good! He is calm and relaxed and has found his favorite pillow already. UPDATE ON KILO FROM HIS FOSTER MOM: I have had Kilo since May 26. He is such a super guy. He loves my very submissive female hound mix, he loves playing with toys of any type, he's a very healthy eater, he loves to go for rides in the car, he loves to go for walks, he is also quite handy at cuddling on the couch. At some point in his former life, someone took a lot of time with this dog. He knows basic commands, he walks in heel position, he has good recall, he's housebroken, he's fairly quiet although he does take his job as guard dog seriously if he feels the need to sound the alarm. He does have a prey drive so would need supervising around small animals. He has gotten use to my cat, although I would not call him particularly cat friendly. Under supervision, he might be ok with a cat, not multiples. His ideal household for adoption would be one where he can be King of his domain as an only dog. He will love and adore his person but he's not big on sharing and doesn't play well with other canines except for aforementioned submissive females. He would be perfect for the person who wants a quieter, calmer, older guy to share life with.

      Moose

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $427.50 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Hey everyone, Moose here!! I am so excited to out of the shelter! I used to live outside and but am learning quickly that living inside is much more fun. I am also learning that I still need to potty outside but my foster mom says I am doing very well at figuring it out. I also get a little nervous when she leaves but she assures me that she will be back and she always is! Moose is a young Boxer boy...full of kisses and energy. He does great with alll other dogs...older, younger, male and female. UPDATE: Moose was adopted in August and, through no fault of his own, is being returned to the rescue. His Boxer fursister does not like having him around as he is full of young Boxer energy. He is fantastic with other dogs and with kids, however at his size and energy level, he may accidentally knock small chiildren down. Moose will occasionally countersurf. He does great on a leash and loves to go for walks. He is crate trained and housebroken. Moose has been through some obedience classes and enjoys going to doggie daycare where he is friends with everyone. He will do best in an active home with one or more dogs with the same energy level as him and who can help teach him good manners. His perfect family will continue with his obedience training. THE LATEST FROM MOOSE'S FOSTER FAMILY: Are you looking for an energetic boxer? Are you looking for a dog that you can train and work with at a high level? Are you able to deal with fear issues with calm and firm expectations? If you have said yes, then Moose might be the dog for you! Moose has been a part of our home since February 2016. He will require a home that can set clear boundaries and work on training at least 20-30 minutes per day. He prefers to be engaged in thinking activities and likes to be the center of attention. All members of the family need to be confident in the ability to hold him to his rules. He is crate trained and loves to go “kennel”. He also has basic commands down pretty well. Moose has a dominant personality with both other dogs and people. It would be best if he was an only fur child, although he really likes the cat. Moose will growl at other dogs and people if he wants your sole attention. He will also growl at anyone who asks him to stop doing what he wants to do, although that has improved greatly since we have had him. He will need to be fed away from people and not be allowed near the dinner table, as he can be food focused. Moose will let you know when he is done eating and is OK with the bowl disappearing. He likes to make sure EVERY morsel of food is eaten. Moose does not do well in high activity situations. He likes his routine and what he knows. When asked to be out in public, it is very stressful for him. Given that we have worked with him for a long period, he has come to trust that we will not put him in a bad situation. However, he is not that trusting towards strangers, and I would never allow a stranger to pet him. Excited energy to him is incredibly over stimulating, and he prefers to be ignored rather than touched and coddled. He will come to people in his own time when he is ready to accept a person. The more attention you give him, the more he doesn’t trust you. Moose is a very loyal and protective dog, and he will defend his yard from any threats. Bicyclists, joggers, and other people passing by, so a high fenced yard will be needed. He can leap really high off the ground. It is quite amazing! Grooming activities are easy with Moose. He likes to get a bath and have his nails trimmed. He can be a very loving boxer boy with the family and loves to snuggle, but he is like a cat in that all of a sudden he is done with being touched. He will let a person know when he is done. He is then immediately removed from the room. We call him the Grumpy Old Man, even though he is under 2 years of age. Moose is a work in progress. He can be a great dog, but he will require a knowledgeable family with dog experience and a willingness to work with a trainer to help him figure out that the world is not as scary a place as he thinks it is. He has potential, but families need to be aware that he is a special boy with special needs.

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $374.06 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Colleen and her six puppies were found in rural Alabama and taken to a shelter...and a shelter was no place for this little family to be. They are now with their foster mom, Corinne and are doing well. The vet said the babies are healthy and approximately six weeks old, but mom is heartworm positive. Colleen's is all ready to find a foster home who will be patient with her insecurities in new situations. Life has not been kind to her and she needs some serious love, attention and patience. Colleen is also heartworm positive and will need a quiet home to help her get through treatment. UPDATE: Colleen is settling in at her foster home. She is learning to trust people and even liking her foster fursibling Charley a little more and more each day. THE LATEST: Colleen just tested heartworm negative...her treatment was a success!!! She is ready to move to a longer term foster or adoptive home. She will require very understanding foster or adoptive parents who will help her with her trust issues and will continue her very intensive training. Colleen will do best in a home with no cats, no small dogs or any other small animals. She loves her foster furbrother Charley :)

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $267.19 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Tator is 6 years old and he is heartworm positive. He gets along with other dogs and ignored the cats when tested. He is mostly quiet and is a very friendly guy. Tator was surrendered because his family was moving and they couldn't take him to their new home. He will be getting some routine vetting then will go to his North Carolina foster home to start heartworm treatment. UPDATE: Tator is all finished with his heartworm treatment and he is ready to find his longer term foster or furever home! He can be a little nervous and insecure in new situations and he will look to his people for direction and reassurance. FROM TATOR'S FOSTER MOM: Tator aka Otis is a 6.5 year old male Brindle Boxer. We have been fostering him since early September so we have gotten to know each other pretty well! He has had several names since his rescue, including Tator and Oscar, however he did not respond to those so we've dubbed him 'Otis' and it stuck! Odie Odie Odie! Otis is currently fostering with a large fur family, including 3 dogs and a cat. He's been fantastic with the dogs after an extended 2 week shutdown and loves having canine playmates! However he seems to be too interested in the cat, so at this time we are recommending a feline-free home for him. He's also been great with respectful children that he's met! Otis is crate trained and will often walk into his crate without prompting. He is a quiet guy and does not do much barking, unless he's crated and needs to potty. He's a very mellow, low energy dog and would do great in just about any family situation. A walk a day is enough for him! Otis is still figuring out toys, he will occasionally pick them up and carry them around, but doesn't really play with them. He's also very respectful of furniture, or doesn't seem to care for laying on it. If we don't let him out after too long, he will have an accident (unlike a housebroken dog who knows to hold it, Otis will let 'er flow). However, as long as we remain aware and let him out on a regular basis, anytime he comes out of the crate, etc, he does not have accidents. We haven't had an accident in several months now. When Otis first came into rescue, he was heartworm positive and suffering from mange. He had spent his life chained up outside. But he has since been treated for all and is doing very well! He seems to have a grain and chicken allergy that causes him to itch, so he is being kept on grain/chicken free food and getting a medicated shampoo bath every 3-4 weeks which seems to control it. Otis is an incredibly sweet, easy going Boxer. Upon taking him in, it was reported that he had some resource guarding issues. He has not had any guarding issues since coming back to the rescue. MEDICAL UPDATE: Tator (aka Otis) has had some ongoing skin issues that we are working on getting under control. His diet has been changed and he is on some natural supplements that seem to be helping. We are currently evaluating his thyroid level to see if medication is needed. Please don't let that deter you from adopting this amazing boy...thyroid medication is very inexpensive and he is totally worth it :)

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: $374.06 includes all applicable MN sales tax. Dempsey is a sweet and very affectionate boy who loves to give hugs. He tested well with other dogs, he would probably chase cats. He was adopted and returned after nipping a child while upsupervised after only being in the home for two days. Dempsey is settling into his temporary foster home. He will do best in a home with older children. FROM DEMPSEY'S TEMPORARY FOSTER MOM: Dempsey is a super cute dark brindle boxer boy who we estimate is around 2 years old. He was saved by Across America Boxer Rescue from a shelter working to maintain a no kill status in Lafayette, Indiana. He has spent way too much of his young life confined to a kennel and unsocialized. This cute little peanut needs some work with feeling safe in new situations, and understanding that there will always be enough: love, attention, food, water and time for him from now until forever. He hasn’t figured out the ecstasy of floppy toys or the achievement felt when the last morsel is extracted from a kong! He needs a person who has the time and energy to walk the line between crazy, wild, mouthy, sassy puppy child and refined, sophisticated and mature boxer boy. He is unsure about his place with other dogs, and his previous choices have been to try and dominate the relationship, his foster brothers are veterans with fosters and don’t mind too terribly being bossed around or neglected for a while as the new dog acclimates, a new brother or sister might become jealous and that could create a potential problem. He has concerns about making sure his needs are met, indicating that the pattern has been that they have not been, but he has done well with firm boundaries and a lot of encouragement and reassurance. He bonds VERY quickly with his people and seems to have the view that if he controls the people he controls the resources; which to his credit, is not wrong. (and seriously with that face it works particularly well.) A concern that I have is that he will need slow and thorough introductions with his new house dogs. When he is afraid he gets snarly, which is an unacceptable behavior for any young dog, but he has settled in to our home so much faster than I ever expected!! And I am so proud of him!! He was tethered to me for the first 3 days, learning in my immediate proximity the house rules. We took several walks to help relieve the tension in the house, which worked remarkably well. My old boys got a chance to relax and he used up some of his excess energy and had a resetting sniff. The third day we had some off leash time, but no play was allowed with the boys. He was allowed to play with me, and dare I say it’s been a long time since there has been a puppy in this house and I got boxed a couple of times, so keep your dukes up!! There were still a couple of snarly incidents over visitors and food control. He remains overly interested in the food bowls. He has mellowed about visitors after some practice and management. He has slept in his kennel every night and settles down nicely; he particularly likes Arty Wu meditations while he is settling down for bed (yes, I tried others). The first couple of nights he had some loud and righteous indignation at being confined yet again, but dogs make bad choices and he does not respect the baby gate boundary as of 10/29/16. He loves going for a walk and is the most superb leash walker I have ever had the privilege of fostering! I motion that this would be an EXCELLENT opportunity for crafting a bond in his forever home! He is a very smart boy! A small obedience course would be an amazing exercise for this boy; I suggest having one set up prior to placement and beginning immediately upon arrival. Not only would it provide a bonding experience, but controlled exposure to other dogs doing “their own thing”. The sixth day he was allowed to play with Georgia, because he asked and she expressed interest. He is somewhat overzealous in his play; hard nibbling, lip “biting” (in play, but rough), boxing hard and pouncing. The play was acceptable, but was broken up while it was still a positive experience for both dogs. Dempsey was redirected to play with us and Georgia was sent to get a play facilitator (a toy! J ) There have been several “plays” in the subsequent days and he has been allowed to remain with the boys while I use the bathroom, or while they are sunning in the afternoon. He has maintained and improved his acceptance of them, and they of him. This boy has a bright future ahead of him if his improvement continues on this level! I am incredibly and increasingly hopeful that he has the capacity to make good choices when his needs are consistently being met. We continue to work on: - Using toys to play and not mouthing on hands. - Taking turns getting snacks and waiting in line for the water bowl. - Maintaining patterned feeding schedule and feeding routine to establish feelings of food security - Walking like an absolute boss on the leash 1/6/17 UPDATE: Dempsey will be starting obedience classes with his foster mom and dad.

He is also good with cats. Leon has some issues with his rear leg and he is heartworm positive. He will be seeing the vet and will be moved to a longer term foster home very soon. UPDATE: Leo has settled into his foster home but not without some challenges. He is feeling better and getting around much better after getting started on medication for what is believed to be an infection that was left untreated and that went to his spine. He loves food and treats and is learning how to play with toys. He has no problem getting up on the bed :) THE LATEST: Leo Bear has completed heartworm treatment. He is crate trained and housebroken, however, due to previous neglect, he has some issues expressing his bladder so his foster mom has learned to help him with that. He does dribble a little bit of urine and after trying many different things, Kelly found diapers for him that work great and he doesn't mind wearing. He has had a couple of urinary tract infections, also most likely due to previous infection being left untreated. After a round of antibiotics he is back to his happy, healthy, wiggling, kissing self :) Leo has come so, so very far. He is a very friendly and social boy and has become a wonderful foster furbrother to all of kitties and other dogs who have come to stay for a while.
