Posted Breed: Boxer / American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Lindsey (aabr5@hotmail.com) for more information about this pet. 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.

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.

      Age: Young
      Location: Burnsville, MN
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Please contact Lindsey (aabr5@hotmail.com) for more information about this pet. Kringle is finally settling into his foster home. He has learned that it is OK to play with his foster fursister and to play with toys. He is very afraid of being crated and leery of new people, especially men. His foster mom and dad are taking things very slowly with him and are beginning to see some improvement in his trust issues. Kringle will need a very structured home and a Boxer-savvy family who will continue to work with him on training and obedience, including enrolling him in classes. UPDATE: Kringle (aka Rocko) is in URGENT need of a foster home. He will need time to decompress and adjust to the move. He will need lots of patience and understanding as he learns new people and a new environment. He is good with other dogs when proper introductions are done. At this time he will do best in a home with older children only as he has not been around any small children yet. Kringle is slow to warm up to new people and will be more trusting of females before males until he knows that he is safe.

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Burnsville, MN
      Posted Breed: Boxer / American Bulldog (short coat). Luna found herself in an overfull Alabama shelter and in desperate need of rescue. She is great with other dogs and FULL of energy. She will do best with a family who can give a young energetic girl the exercise she needs, both mentally and physically. UPDATE: Luna has been in her temporary foster home for a few days now and she has already learned the commands for "sit" and "heel". She is learning what the leash is and has done great with not jumping on the children in the home. She is very energetic and gets very excited after going outside to do her business...it's like she is just soooooooo happy to have a home to come back inside to every time! It is obvious that her former life wasn't a good one...she has shown some fear and cowering at some household items, especially her skin brother's baseball bat. She warms up very quickly to people and doesn't mind the crate. She will do best in a home with no cats. THE LATEST: Luna is approximately 2-3 years old but she is very much still a young soul. We believe that she never got to be a normal puppy so now that she knows she is safe, she is in puppy mode. This girl loves to run around and play. She would love another young dog to play with her. Luna does need some training. She would greatly benefit from a puppy class. One of the rescue ladies said it best, Luna is a little girl in a big girl body..meaning she doesn't know how strong she is or how big she is. Luna has definitely figured out that living inside with a family is a great thing. She loves to snuggle, even if she doesn't know how big she is :) She loves, loves, loves pillows and toys!

The shelter estimated him at 7-8 years old we think he may be younger. He is getting all fixed up at the vet and will be on his way to his tempoary foster home this weekend. UPDATE: Chase is doing great in his temporary foster home. He is starting to grow hair back a little :) He is becoming more and more alive! He is going to the door with all the others to bark and he is barking and going to the door when the doorbell on TV rings...it is funny! He is so sweet. Chase is super laid back and loves nothing more than to be with his people and other dogs. He walks great on a leash. THE LATEST from his foster mom: Chase is all settled in at his Minnesota foster home. He is a LOVER! He loves to snuggle and get loved up. He is laid back, likes to nap - however he is still working on getting healthy. He goes outside and "trots" around even runs a little. He has barked a couple of times - but he is not a "barker". He hasn't jumped up on us and he gets along with our 4 furbabies. He has a VERY healthy appetite - which is a good thing. He is totally housebroken. Even with not knowing our house rules and routine, he hasn't had an accident. He doesn't like getting a bath, but he won't "fight" with you about it :)

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). 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 :)

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Burnsville, MN
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Please contact Lindsey (aabr5@hotmail.com) for more information about this pet. Howard was found as a stray in rural Kentucky. He has some pretty serious wounds and his teeth are broken off from trying to get out of whatever he was caught in, possibly a trap. Howard is currently at VCA in Indianapolis receiving the best care for his wounds and condition. If he continues to improve he will be released to his foster home this week. UPDATE!! Howard underwent surgery to close his wounds and to be neutered and did beautifully!! He is now in his foster home and is settling in very well. He is eating well and gaining some weight and when he is healthy enough he will undergo heartworm treatment. THE LATEST: Howard is looking and feeling MUCH better these days!! He had a vet visit today and was found to be heartwom negative so he is all ready to find his furever home!!! Howard has been with us for a month and gets along great with our 9 year old female boxer. He loves to snuggle with you and has a lot of love to give. He recently spent the day with another female dog and after an hour they were great friends. 8/24 UPDATE: Don't let Howard's age fool you. Despite a very few gray hairs Howie still acts like a much younger dog. He has lots of love and energy to give. He likes cats a little too much so he should not go to a house that has one. He gets along great with our resident female boxer and other big dogs. At his vet visit today he got another clean bill of health. He shows no signs of slowing down. OCTOBER 2016 UPDATE: Howard is back in Indiana with his original foster. He did fantastic on his long trip from Minnesota to Indiana...he loves riding in the car. He is full of love and kisses for everyone he meets. Howard does pretty good on the leash, listens well and corrects easily. He has LOTS of energy for an older boy and does need a little help with some basic manners like not jumping on new friends but he is very food motivated and smart and will train easily :) . He has learned how to take treats gently. Howard has done very well with all of his new dog friends and he is also fantastic with kids. If you are in the Indianapolis area you just have to meet this handsome boy!!!

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Gizmo is 8 years young and full of life and love despite being neglected both mentally and physically for most of his life. He put on some much-needed weight while in the shelter and was loved and very well taken care of while there but he is super happy to be out and headed to his foster home. We know that he is great with other kids and LOVES to play ball. Please check back for updates on Gizmo as we get to know him! UPDATE: Gizmo is having some trouble trusting that other dogs want to be his friend. He will be working on settling in with his fursiblings in his temporary foster home. He is fantastic with kids and LOVES to play ball. THE LATEST ON GIZMO: He will do best in a home either as an only dog or a slow intro with a female dog. He doesn't seem to fond of the males. He is great with people and kids. Very affectionate, cuddles, loves his belly rubbed, crate trained and house trained.

Leon is an adorable boy who will be leaving the vet clinic tomorrow after being abandoned there by his family. He is very sweet and good with other dogs. 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.

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Burnsville, MN
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Please contact Lindsey (aabr5@hotmail.com) for more information about this pet. 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.
