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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Blue Jay is a 5-6 year old blue pittbull. She has not had a lot of care during her life and is so thankful that a good samaritan found her during the cold weather and took her in. She was wandering the streets and didn't have a place to call home. She was very hungry. She appears to be completely house trained and crate trained. She loves to be in the house with people. She loves people of all sizes and is a small girl of only about 40 lbs. She would be best in a home of her own where she doesn't have to share her humans but she is manageable with other dogs. She loves to play with toys and throws them around in the air and even retrieves them at times. She has a little skin issues but that is healing and even has put on a bit of weight. She would love to have a home of her own. Please ask about Blu on your application. This dog is being fostered near Anniston, AL.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Birdie is ready for her retirement home! This sweet old gal has come a long way. She was in a home for all of her life. She has had a few litters of puppies but doesn't seem to be very social with other dogs. At the age of 9 her owners hit on hard times and they had to move around. Birdie got put outside and basically just ignored. She was getting old and just wanted to be inside with her people and she didn't understand. She also was having some medical issues. Once we got her, she was taken to the vet and given a complete medical exam and got all of her vaccines up to date. She had a rough time having 6 tumors removed, and the vet gave her clear margins. She is healing and is ready to find her new home. She's 10 years old and so sweet. She is a love bug. She still has a lot of play in her. She's waiting to find a nice retirement home to lay her head down. Can you be that home for her? This dog is being fostered near Birmingham, AL.
