Where do you find the dogs? Our boxers come in from area shelters, from families that are no longer able to care for them properly, from vet clinics where they've been left. If at anytime a boxer is in need, we will do our best to help them.

Is there a shelter for the rescue dogs? LBR does not have a shelter that houses it's boxers. Our volunteers have opened up their homes and keep foster boxers for our program.
What is a foster parent? A foster parent is one of the most selfless people in the world. They open up their homes and their hearts to a boxer in need and get them healthy enough to be adopted to their forever homes.

How can I see/meet your available boxers? Visit us at one of our Meet a Boxer events.
Are the boxers healthy? Before leaving our care, our dogs are healthy to the best of our vets knowledge. They receive a heartworm test and if positive are cured of them. They are spayed or neutered and have received a full set of immunizations. Our boxers are also provided monthly heartworm and flea preventative while in our care. Their vet records will be provided for you upon adoption.
How long does the adoption process last? Each situation is different, in some cases it can be a few days, others can take a month or two. Most applications are completely processed within a week.
How long does a boxer stay with it's foster parent? It depends on the boxer. Boxers that come in with heartworms have an extensive recovery period, usually lasting a month. Some dogs just stay a few days if there is enough interest in them.

Do boxers drool? Only when they want Cheetos! Seriously, most boxers are not chronic droolers. Some do drool when anticipating food, and they may get frothy when playing hard.
