BOXERS IN NEED!
The following boxers need you. They are currently in local shelters or in homes that can no longer care for them for whatever reason. LBR has been asked to help them, but we cannot take them into our program because our foster homes are full. LBR provides all food, vetting a crate, and basic essentials like leash and collar, for each foster boxer - please help us help them!

Please note that in most cases, LBR has no other information about these boxers other than what's listed here.


There are also boxers in shelters that we do not have pictures of. We need all the help we can get at this point. If you are interested in fostering for us, please fill out our foster application by clicking here.

Other Info: Junior is a 3, almost 4, year old 60 pound average sized unaltered brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. This dog is beautiful and SMART. He knows sit, but I taught him "down" in less than 2 minutes. He is very excited when he first meets you, and jumps. I think with a little training, this bad habit can be squelched. His mom said that he calms down pretty quickly and doesn't even rush her at the door when she comes home. He is pretty mellow except on initial meetings. His mom is going through a divorce and is devastated that she will not have a yard or time for him. He will be snatched up in the waiting period, I have no doubt. If my personal girl weren't so cranky and frail, I would have taken him home with me. He eats Salmon Beneful. He did not have any identifiable lumps or bumps. He is super social. His mom got him from a co-worker who could not keep him because he killed her cat. The prior owner said he did not get along with boy dogs, but current mom said he is very playful with the boy dog next door through the fence. However, he has never been loose with another boy dog since he has been with his current family. Mom cried and said she felt awful for letting him go, but I assured her that she is looking for someone who can provide him a better home than she can right now. The owner has sold her house, and he is staying at the house currently while she is in her apartment. He must be out by 6/30.

Other Info: Smudge is a 2 year old large spayed female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Smudge was purchased from a breeder in Bartonville. Smudge's sister was purchased by the owner's brother and lives in California now. Smudge has been diagnosed with Chronic Juvenile Folliculitis and has been undergoing therapy for same since 03/2016. She has been allergy tested and noted to have HIGH ALLERGIES to bees, soy and eggs. They found out about the bees after Smudge ate some bees and had anaphylaxis. She has been treated with chronic steroids, antibiotics, zyrtec, omega fatty acids, special food, and special beds. She is not up-to-date on her vaccinations or heart worm prevention because of these special medications. The owner's vet advised them that routine shots and heart worm prevention during steroids could cause additional medical problems for Smudge. The owner's stated that they have been diligent with Smudge's medications, and special food. The family has 3 children, so Smudge is very good with children. The family has a lot going on and is not able to provide all of the attention and meet her needs. The owner also pays to have Smudge's folliculitis pustules opened and cleaned (this puts Smudge under sedation). She has patchy hair and the follicles bleed and have pus on them. The volunteer did not smell an odor to the pus, and Smudge is clean, well-kept and has no fleas or ticks. Her teeth are clean, but her snout has some infected follicles as well. Smudge is a VERY healthy 80 pound, tall white girl with a brown patch on her right eye. She is SUPER friendly, she gave me kisses, boxer butt wiggles and leans. She is HIGHLY intelligent and sits, shakes and loves her treats. Because of her skin, she only gets greenies as treats (per the owner's vet). Smudge is completely an outside dog, but does come in the home when the family is around. She loves to play with the children in the home and loves to run. She has a special pallet outside with a warming light and has access to water. The owner advised Smudge is loving, loyal, good with people, loves the car, is a "talker", is super smart and LOVES kids and the neighbors. The owner advised that when Smudge gets out of the back yard, she goes to the neighbors house and they all love her. Smudge is a "wants to please" girl, and loves parks and walks and she has NEVER been to the dog park. She has been house trained since a puppy. Smudge does not like a crate per the owner. Smudge had anxiety when she was a puppy. Smudge doesn't like it but tolerates a bath and she gets a bath 2 times a week. She is an outside dog and runs and plays in a very large backyard. She is high energy, but doesn't bark at the mailman, fed ex, or other people she "knows". She will alert to strangers near the home and has never been aggressive to adults or children. She has never been aggressive to other dogs, unknown about cats. Smudge is high energy, but settles down easily. She currently eats dry, Wellness Simple, Limited Ingredient Diet (Salmon & Potato). It has no soy, corn, dairy, eggs etc. This food is on the approved list from the vet. Smudge has not had any formal training; the owner had trained Smudge when she was a puppy. Smudge pulls on her lead at first, but she settles down. The current owner uses verbal correction and time-out as a form of discipline. The owner advised that Smudge actually tells on herself when she does something she shouldn't (like digging). The owner advised Smudge can be a Houdini and get out of the yard, and is NOT a fence jumper. If Smudge doesn't want her treat that you give her right then....she will find a place to bury it...even in the couch. She does not have any reaction to toys, food, and other items being taken away. Smudge actually believes you are taking the bowls, toys, etc to get her something better. Smudge is microchipped and registered. Smudge does not get excited or upset over fireworks, loud noises, etc. This is a hard decision for the family. The whole family wanted Smudge, but as her medical condition has taken such an interesting turn, no one but the wife takes care of her.

Other Info: Slayer is a two year old 50 to 55 lb unaltered fawn male Boxer with natural ears and a docked tail. The owner stated she obtained Slayer from a friend on Facebook who needed to rehome him for unknown reasons. She advised that the former owner had raised Slayer on about 4 acres and he was in a dog run. He was completely an outside dog. He is house and crate trained, but is an outside dog. He does have a doggie door that he uses to be able to get to water. He has a pretty good size yard and did not care or respond to the neighbor's outside dog when that dog barked at us during the interview. He does have a tendency to dig, but nothing extreme. The owner stated she gave him one bath and he did not like the bath but tolerated it. The owner advised Slayer "walks her" when they go for a walk. He will run off if the gate is open but he comes back and hangs out on the front porch. He did get out when we went to leave, but we opened the truck door and he was ready to go for a ride. He is high energy. The owner advised Slayer is good with her 11 and 6 year old kids and good with her 1 year old niece as well. He is excitable and jumpy so I would suggest no child under 5 until further evaluation. He loved to jump and play with my husband. My husband was with me for this evaluation. He is 6'1" and "big and scary" to some animals. I had him wear a ball cap and sunglasses and Slayer was not scared of him at all. Slayer appears to have some training, but unknown if it was formal or previous owner training. He knows sit, and shake but when when my husband raised his hand to do a "high 5" Slayer winced and did not put his paw up. It made us suspect he may have had corrective measures in the past that were smacks to his nose or face. His current owner uses verbal correction and Slayer responds well to it. He eats dry Pedigree. He has been given table scraps and LOVES cheese. Unknown if Slayer is up to date on vaccines and on HWP. His current owner has not vaccinated him or given him HWP. Owner is moving on 5/15/2017. The owner stated her landlord sold the rental she is living in and she has to move before her lease is up at the end of the month. The previous owner cannot and will not take Slayer back, and Misty did not elaborate why when asked. I am very concerned that Slayer will end up surrendered to a shelter if a foster home is not found quickly. Since some owner surrenders to shelters are immediately euthanized, I feel an urgency that LBR rescue him asap.

***UPDATE 5/2: Floyd continues having seizures. Owner cannot afford meds & have run out. They are considering putting him to sleep. We are running out of time to save him.***
***Update 4/16: Owner needs to find Floyd a foster home as soon as possible. Her daughter also has seizures and is now scared and stressed from watching Floyd have seizures.*** Floyd is a 3 year old large neutered dark brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered because his owner cannot afford his epilepsy medication and vet care. We are not sure if Floyd is up to date on his vaccinations or taking a heart worm preventative. Floyd is crate trained and can be crated for between 8-12 hours. He is kept both inside and outside, depending on how long the owner will be gone. Floyd is great with people and does not display any aggression or growling. He loves everyone. Floyd does not have any issues when getting his nails trimmed or being bathed. He knows basic commands and has been to puppy school at Pet Smart. Floyd is taken on walks and has not been taken to the dog park.

Floyd currently eats Purina dry food and he is free fed. Floyd Doesn't pull on his lead when being walked. The current owner uses verbal correction for behavior and she will swat him on the rear if needed. No problems per owner if someone tried to take a rawhide or food bowl from him. Floyd does not reach when toys/treats are being taken from him. Floyd could use a diet! He's around 80 pounds and well fed. He has a gorgeous coat, sweet face and he seems like he would be easy to train. He's only had one incident of growling per owner, and that was meeting an unaltered male Boston Terrier. He currently lives with kids, a small male altered Boston Terrier and multiple cats!! That's right, he's small dog, cat, and kid friendly!!!

Other Info: Laila is a 2 year old small spayed fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because she was originally the owners ex boyfriends. She has reached out to him with no response. The owner works full time and Laila is crated most of the day. She also has no fenced yard. Laila needs an active home and an owner who has time to spend with her so she can get exercise play and training. She stays in her crate 6-7 hours a day. She was apprehensive about us coming into her home and warned up to the female volunteer before the male volunteer. She began to relax after a while with both of us. She is protective but showed no signs of aggression, more shy. Owner states that she gets along with dad and brothers and other guests and children. Jumps on adults but not kids. She is house and crate trained. She is used to a plastic crate. She doesn't like to be bathed. She will play in the water but gets super squirmy if owner tries to bathe her. Her nails are trimmed by the vet. She does not get a lot of exercise. She plays in the small house with 2 other smaller dogs. Owners says she is high energy. She often plays by herself in the house. She wants to play and could use both exercise, training and confidence through socialization. She is not possessive with toys, she shares with her dog siblings. She currently eats Whole Foods brand dog food. She has no training. She pulls on the leash when walking, and was timid and shy when we took her out on a leash. She started to warm up after a bit. She is disciplined using verbal correction. She would have no reaction if someone tried to take a rawhide or food bowl from her. She eats and plays with sibling dogs. A foster home or adoptive home would need to know that she does jump up. She eventually warmed up to us and jumped up softly. She is an anxious girl but soooo sweet and I think with training and exercise she will gain confidence. She is due for her vaccinations in May and is not up to date on heart worm prevention. Laila is a pretty, soft, sweet little girl. When she warms up to you she is full of boxer leans and kisses. She has a two-toothed underbite. She is slim, but her fur is soft and she let me pet and handle her paws, face, and ears with no reaction. She's about 40 lbs... and has such a sweet nature. She just needs to build some confidence through a solid bond with an forever home who will have time to play, exercise, and train with her. She is shy and apprehensive. She does not like going to the vet. She does ride well in the car and isn't bothered by storms. She is anxious and not super confident, she needs training and exercise. She has no injuries or illnesses the owner is aware of.

Other Info: Maggie is a 9 year old average sized spayed fawn female Boxer with natural ears and a docked tail. Her owner is rehoming her because she has a farm and Maggie kills chickens and tried to harm a baby goat. She does not get along with my small animals either. Owner took Maggie in to rehome for an elderly friend. Maggie stays outside in a large pen with a child size play house as a dog house. She is good with children and adults. Owner has a 5 year old daughter that climbs in and out of her pen. Maggie just wants lovings. She is partially house trained. Sometimes Maggie seems to get nervous or excited and wets the floor. Once she realizes she is okay and no harm is to come she does well with going outside. This is the only time I have seen her mess. She is crate trained. She was previously kept in a crate for 4 to 6 hours at a time. The vet trimmed her nails when she was spayed. (Owner has had her for 9 months) Her pen is a huge yard like area. Maggie will bark to get your attention. She doesn't seem to care for toys or chewies. She is fed Retriever brand bites and bones and dry dog food. She has had no training to the owner's knowledge. Very good on leash. She stands still with a leash and no pulling. She is verbally disciplined, as in "No" or "Hush". If you take away her food, bon, rawhide or a toy she stands back and watches or looks puzzled. She is current on shots but is not on Heartworm prevention. Maggie wants lots of attention. She barks until she gets petted or loved on. She will chase other animals if they run from her. When she killed the chickens it was not to eat them, it's because they ran from her. (prey drive) She is a curious dog. I however recommend her being on a leash at all times when out of her pen for her protection. She will notify owner if she sees someone she does not know by barking as an alert. No health problems to her knowledge.

Other Info: Chevy is a 1 year old neutered brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. This boy does not have any known illnesses. He is up to date on his vaccinations and his last heart worm preventative was taken on 5/1/2017. Chevy is being surrendered because the current owner has a 4 year old and 2 year old twins. They do not have the time to work with Chevy. They also have an older female boxer that doesn't have energy to keep up with puppy playing. Chevy is still a puppy and someone needs to devote more time to working with him. Also, both of the current owners work full time. They originally thought Chevy would be a companion for older boxer. Chevy is kept inside when the current owners are home. he is kept outside with a dog door to the garage when owners are not home. Chevy's crate is in the garage. He is crate trained and house trained. Chevy was very gentle and looked for affection from me while I was there. I was able to pet him as soon as I arrived. The current owners have never bathed him; they have only had him for about 5 months. It is unknown how he does with grooming, nail trims and baths. Chevy get most of his exercise from running in the yard exercise. He is occasionally walked on the leash. Chevy is calm indoors but barks a lot when outside in backyard. He can be destructive when left alone outside. Chevy is not aggressive with toys. Children take toys from him and he has no response. He is currently eating Purine One Dry. Chevy has had training. He is able to sit, stay, lay and crawl on command. He was trained by the breeder. He will walk well on the lead; however, he pulls a bit. The current owners use verbal correction only. Not at all aggressive. He is a digger but he could probably be broken of this habit. Chevy is a typical puppy. This guy was so gentle and wanted lots of touching and petting. He did not jump on me or anyone else during my visit. Chevy just seemed to not get enough one on one attention. Owners do not have time for him with 3 small children and full time jobs. This is a brindle with beautiful markings! He's also very smart and would be great if someone has time to work with him. He has something going on with his left eye; it is droopy and red. Owner has drops but said she's not consistent with using them on him. Vet said could be genetic or may go away with use of drops.

Other Info: Spencer is a 55 lb unaltered 10 year old flashy fawn male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. His owner is surrendering him because he will not stay in the yard and they live next to a busy highway. Owner lives with a parent that will not allow him to live inside. He also doesn't get the attention he deserves and he does not need to spend the rest of his life on a chain. He stays outside on the chain, all day every day. He has access to a lot of shade and a nice dog house. He is neither house or crate trained. He's timid around new people but never aggressive to anyone. If other animals don't run from him he will either not care if they are there or won't really know what to do but he still wouldn't hurt them. When it comes to meeting other dogs he may be somewhat "rude" but not aggressive but it also depends on how the other dog behaves to determine his reaction to them but he has only had one bad encounter with one dog (neither dog was hurt though). He is food aggressive only towards other dogs except for puppies, he would usually stop eating so the pup could eat. He is very good with kids 6+. When he gets to playing he doesn't recognize his size and might hurt younger kids. He absolutely HATES getting wet but if you keep him on a leash he won't try to run away mid bath and is pretty calm. He will pull his paws away but won't run from the clippers or nip. When owner feeds him she would let him off his chain for a little while and then once she gets his food ready she hooks him back up. She used to take him running but he got to where he couldn't run or walk as long as he used to plus the more she took him out the harder he'd try to get out by himself so as of right now the main exercise he gets is when she lets him off before he eats. He has toned down a lot from when he was younger, but he definitely has a young heart. He likes to play catch (he runs around with a toy and you act like you try to catch him or take the toy so you can throw it and start all over again), he also likes to play with one of their small dogs but his size scares her so he doesn't really get to play as much as he wants to, he loves to play with puppies but as you would expect at his age he does tire out easily. He is not at all possessive with toys. He eats Alpo Come and Get It dry food and sometimes the Alpo canned food mixed in with it. Owner taught him everything he knows, he has never taken a class. He knows sit shake and laydown/roll onto side. He walks very well on a leash and is easily corrected. He knows up (to get on chair or up steps). When walking on a leash owner can make a clicking sound and say turn and he will start making a U-turn. He used to know how to pout but owner hasn't been able to get him to do it in a while. He is extremely smart and is still willing to learn. Amazing best leash walker owner has ever had. Rarely ever pulls and is easily corrected when he does. For discipline owner usually uses verbal sounds, when he was younger a newspaper, and when he first started getting out they put him on the chain for a couple days then let him off after they fixed the spots but now it is the only way they can keep him in the yard. He'd be perfectly fine with anyone taking something of value away from him. No aggression what-so-ever unless the one taking it from him is another dog. He is very much an escape artist. He can shimmy up and between fences, fit through extremely small holes, find the weakest part of a fence, can pop off a collar when chained up and can escape a tight harness, and depending on the gate there is a likely chance he can open it. Basically if there is a way out he will find it. Not sure on all vaccines but he is up to date on rabies. His last HWP was April 25, 2017. No known illnesses or injuries. He does not like car rides or rainy/bad weather, those are his main stressors. He is very sweet, loving, and craves attention. He would be happy as an only dog as long as he gets to be in the house/apartment with his owners. He would also be happy with a younger dog/puppy and/or kids. He wants to be in the house with his people so as long as he is by their side he'd be happy anywhere.

Other Info: Cassius is a medium sized unaltered brindle pure bred male Boxer with natural ears and a docked tail. Owners got Cassius as a puppy but in the last couple of years with 2 kids and another one on the way, it's fallen on Mom to take care of him. She feels he would be better with another family to give him more attention. They used to take him to dog parks and regular walks but not able to any more. He is house trained. So he stays in the house and backyard. When owners are gone he stays inside in a laundry room. He was crated trained, but hasn't been crated for years. No serious behavior issues. He's good with kids and adults. He is really good with their 22 month old toddler. He gets along with other dogs. Cassius is jumpy but the owner said not on the little kids but he does play rough with her 10 year old son. He can get excited and pee when new people come in if they talk in baby talk. I didn't and he was fine. He did jump up on me and was very intense. I think that he wanted to hump me! He didn't but he would cling and look intently into my eyes. I would think that would go away after neutering. He's submissive when meeting other dogs the owner said. Their fence at one time was broken and Cassius figured how to get out and would run around the neighborhood then come back and sit on the porch waiting to be let back in. She said all the neighbors know him and think he's great. No issues with baths. For exercise, only gets out in the backyard now. Used to be regular walks and taken to a dog park where he was fine. I would say medium to high energy level. He doesn't act 7. According to the owner, he plays rough. He eats dry food. He could use some training. He does know sit and did well on a leash. Disciplined by verbal correction. They do have the laundry room they can put him if needed. No known illness or injury but he does have a spot on his back that looked like it could be a hot spot crusted over. They were going to take him to the vet to have it looked at. He is not on HWP. I was told each year they've tested him and it's been negative. He is up to date on some shots, but not all according to the records owner provided. I think even with the jumping, the fact that he was so good with the toddler shows he can handle little kids screaming and playing around him without being phased. Her 22 month old son was rolling toys around him and he just ignored it. He seems pretty chill except for the jumping. Since he's been with this family his whole life, it could be difficult for him. Cassius is a very sweet boy that needs someone with time to drain that boxer energy. And he needs to be neutered! He may or may not have trouble with the transition but the owner wants to do what she feels is in his best interest since they just don't have time to attend to his needs.
