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.

Sex: Male

Is s/he safe from euthanasia?: No

Other Info: This is a 5 year old neutered medium sized brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. He weighs about 65 pounds. This boy started whimpering when I approached his kennel. He sat and offered a paw as if to shake my hand. When we went outside and he was allowed to roam, he was very curious, however, was very interested in looking inside as if he wanted to be inside. He was very inquisitive. He seems like he would be good with children. He allowed me to assess his entire body, ears and mouth without any hesitancy. There were a lot of people walking inside the kennel and the walkways, he paid no attention to them as he walked through them. He had no interest in checking out all of the other dogs as he was walked to the outdoor play area. He sat upon my approaching his kennel, he was good on the leash, pulling a bit. He acted to me as if he had some training, and is really missing his home. No cat test was performed. I felt no lumps or bumps, he had no areas of missing hair, his nails were long, nose was rough on the end, no active drainage noted. His ears were without tenderness, dirty inside. His eyes were clear without drainage. I did offer him a treat, he sniffed but was too interested in other things, I also threw a ball to see if he would play, again his mind was probably on all the smells outside. I was outside with him without supervision. He really does act as if he has been loved. He is heart worm negative per the shelter. He is off hold 2/26.

Other Info: BB is a large 6 year old unaltered brindle female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not current on her vaccinations and she is not taking any heart worm prevention. BB is being surrendered through no fault of her own. BB was given to the current owners when her original owners lost their income. The current owners feel that two boxers are too much and are surrendering BB while keeping their male. BB had puppies in November. ​BB is allowed to free roam when the owners are home and away. She is house trained and crate trained; however, they no longer use a crate for BB. BB does fabulously with children. She is very happy. She may knock down a small child from wiggling.​ We are not sure how BB does when being groomed as the current owners haven't really groomed her. ​BB needs ​a ​serious nail trim. ​We also do not know how she does when being bathed. BB has dry flaky skin​ and could use a good scrub. BB only has yard exercise when ​she ​asks to go out. ​She shows a medium energy level​ as she is playful but not hyper. ​She does settle​ ​quickly.​ BB does show possessiveness with food towards other dogs (and only dogs). BB currents eats dry ​P​urina. She was previously on puppy chow. ​She has been trained at home and she can sit and shake. ​She does great on leash. ​The current owner uses verbal correction only.​ She gets out of the four foot chain link fence. She mostly goes under but has gone over. She snacks on the neighbors chickens, but always comes home. I feel that BB would be a great pet to anyone. Her current owners just aren't knowledgeable as to the care of a dog. They feel ​​t​w​o boxers ​are​ too much, but I have to say her behavior was very good​. ​Thunderstorms and fireworks make her nervous.

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: Roxxy is a 7 year old 50-60 pound spayed fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not up to date on vaccinations. Roxxy is being surrendered because her family is facing financial difficulties and needs to move. This is an incredibly hard decision for this family as they have had Roxxy and Dutch since they were puppies. Roxxy and Dutch live with 3 children with the youngest at 4 years old. Roxxy is free to roam the home. Roxxy is crate and house trained. The crate is not used very often and is sometimes used as her 'time-out' place. She will go in the kennel but she does not prefer it. Roxxy does not get on the furniture, does not sleep on the bed, but has plenty of pillows to lay on. Roxxy is very well behaved. The current owner uses verbal correction and usually the tone of the owner's voice will correct Roxxy's behavior. She is timid, but warms up quickly. She definitely is not a jumpy girl and took to the volunteer right away. She likes slow introductions with other dogs, but warms up well. Roxxy is bathed at a groomer and the owner advised there were never any problems with baths, even when she is bathed at home. The owner was always afraid to trim Roxxy's nails as she was afraid to hurt her. Roxxy had her nails trimmed while at the groomer and there were never any problems. Roxxy loves to go to the dog park and loves to go for walks. She plays with her "people." Roxxy will play with other dogs, but really loves to play with her people. Roxxy has no problem playing with other dogs and toys. Roxxy currently eats a new brand of pedigree dry food and she gets chicken for a treat. Roxxy was trained at PetCo with a clicker and treats. She knows sit, stay and move...as in out of the way. Roxxy will pull on the lead at first but then settles down when walking. The current owner advised that Roxxy does not have a problem with toys, food or treats being taken away from her. The current owner advised that Roxxy is just the best dog ever. Roxxy is actually the mother of Dutch. Roxxy was 3 when she was bred with Dutch's father. Roxxy had 9 puppies and was then spayed. The current owner spoke with such pride in Roxxy of what a good mother she was and how close she is to Dutch. Roxxy was very loving and sweet to Dutch and when Dutch wanted attention, she would let him worm his way in to get some pets and ear rubs from his family. The current owner wants Roxxy and Dutch to be loved and have a great home. Roxxy's coat is nice and slick; there are no lumps, bumps or scars on Roxxy and she has no pad wear. She has a little bit of gray in her muzzle, but she has such love in her eyes and is very gentle and sweet. Roxxy is afraid of the strong/loud thunderstorms and absolutely goes nuts with the doorbell. Roxxy will bark and bark and bark and bark and bark when the doorbell rings. Roxxy does not have a problem with fireworks, love car rides, loves kids and does not jump on them. Roxxy does not mind going to the vet, and has no problem with crowds.

Other Info: Layla is a 5 year old spayed medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is housetrained. Layla's last vaccination was in 2015 and she is not current on heart worm prevention. Layla is being surrendered because the owner has a mix male that instigates arguments with Layla. There is also a new baby in the home and the owner feels this situation is dangerous for the child to be around. During the day, Layla is sometimes crated while inside. At night, she is crated for bed time. The current owners also keep her in her crate over 8 hours while they are at work. She is currently crated in a metal crate. Layla is very afraid and un-socialized. She exhibits extreme fear around adult men. A man and a 10yr old child were present with me for evaluation; Layla did not lunge or bite and has no history of that behavior but you could she that she was fearful. Once we sat and let her calm, She came to trust and let everyone interact with her. She took to the child quickly with all wags. SLOW intro's with adult men needed. I felt no danger, no aggression, just timid and alert. Layla is very sweet in nature. The owners have taken her in for nail to be trimmed twice and they say that the concrete keeps them trim. She gets baths at home and does well. The owner's time is limited and have walked her on occasion. Layla is free to roam in backyard to get her exercise. Layla was not focused with toys or play, but in her natural environment she is known to play well with others.

Layla is energetic and has the capability of being very playful. She's in extremely good shape physically. Layla currently eats Iams dry dog food. Layla sits on command but has not had any other training. Layla does poorly on the leash. The current owners use verbal correction for discipline. She does not have any reaction towards adults or children removing toys or getting close to her food bowl. She has no problems eating with other animals at the same bowl, but - dominant males or females that display as attention hogs can easily start an argument. Layla displays attention issues with petting others and needs focus. Layla exhibits a very large prey drive. She will kill cats on contact. **NO CATS** Layla runs across street to meet other animals walking if she is loose. She does not display aggression towards strange dogs, she has friends in the neighborhood. Layla is a digger. Layla can easily jump a 6.5ft fence.
