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: ***URGENT DUE TO HW+ AND FULL SHELTER***

This is a 4 to 6 year old unaltered small flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. This little guy was scared as I evaluated him in the hall outside one of the large animal kennel rooms. He was friendly, he did try leaning into me, as well as getting up on the chair with me. As we passed the other dogs in the kennel, they were all barking, he was shaking and really did not pay any attention to them. I admit, it was loud for me - they were all barking! He couldn't really be still for long, he showed no signs of being aggressive as I worked my hands all over his body, and looked into his mouth. He may be good with older children, he needs to be in a safe environment and let his true personality come through first. He didn't jump on me. He did not pay any attention to the other dogs, he was pulling on the lead to get out of the area as quickly as he could. When I gave the sit command, he looked as if he knew what that was but maybe confused with all the others things going on around him. No cat test was performed. He had no lumps or bumps, no areas of missing hair, he did have some hardened hairless skin at the end of his tail, staff indicated it would be evaluated when he was neutered later. His rectum was large, as you may note in the picture of his tail. Eyes with that bloodshot boxer eye, nose dry, hair color is red/brown and is very pretty. He is a small boy, I would guess him at 45-50 lbs, he is slightly thin. Heart worm status is unknown. He will be neutered today or tomorrow. He is ready to be adopted or rescued. This small boy is obviously scared in this environment. He was friendly, leaned into me as I did his assessment, he wanted to sit on the bench with me so I feel like he just wants to be close to someone and loved. He is small - and as cute as a bug - and could use some TLC and training, or reinforcement of past training. He would fit very nicely tucked in a recliner with someone!

Other Info: Braddock is a 7 year old large neutered flashy fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Braddock is a very handsome guy who is scared at the shelter after his previous owners left him there. He was surrendered because "he is unpredictable with children". They said he has never bitten anyone but didn't elaborate any further in his "unpredictability". He was shaking like a leaf although he was curious about all the people walking in and out. After a while he did warm up and gave me a little gentle kiss. The shelter staff said he was very outgoing and playful initially at the shelter and has slowly become the scared guy I saw today. Per previous owners, he is unpredictable with children. Shelter staff says he has had no reactions to any of the other shelter dogs. He walked pretty well on the leash. He did know how to sit and at the end of the eval did did show me that he could shake too! There was no cat test available. He appears to be in good health. He had no visible lumps, bumps or missing hair. He did appear to have seasonal aleopecia at one time as the fur in his right side flank is darker than the rest. Front teeth look good back teeth have tartar on them. Heart worm negative per the shelter test.

Other Info: This is a 5 to 6 year old small sized unaltered flashy fawn male with natural ears and a natural tail. He is not deaf. He was calm and laying down when I approached him in his kennel. He seemed scared when I walked him outside. Once we got outside, he showed more energy. He was very friendly and leaned on me very quickly. He did jump on my lap when I sat on a bench, but never when I was standing with him. He was VERY interested in sniffing everything outside and peeing on all the smells. I think he would be fine with children. He didn't pay attention to other dogs barking when we walked by, but it made him uncomfortable and a little skittish. He did see a dog in the adjacent outdoor area when we were outside and looked at it a lot/as interested, but didn't show any aggression towards it. He didn't seem to know any commands. No cat test available. Shelter test is heart worm negative. He is missing his right eye. Shelter said they though he was blind in the other eye, but I don't think so. He walked out of the shelter leading me with no problem and he definitely was looking at the other dog outside. He had a couple fleas, but other than that his coat was good and soft. He had a coupled enlarged nipples. He has two wounds - one on each ear- that seemed fresh and should be looked at. One was oozing something that was green. His teeth looked pretty good - all there except a couple on the lower in the front that were worn down. A little tarter. Also, he had a bowel movement outside and it was not solid. This guy would make a great companion! He was found as a stray, but still was very trusting of me and seemed happy to be outside with someone. He gave me some boxer leans and a jump in my lap. No kidney beans, but he is unaltered and all the smells outside really overwhelmed him, I think :) He would try to bury his pee every time he went. He is medium energy - definitely not an old dog, but definitely not a puppy. He just needs to get out of the shelter and I think he will shine. His hold is up 4/27.

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: Bree is a 6 year old spayed medium sized brindle female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is being surrendered because her owner recently lost her job. She has a temporary job until the end of school and will be selling her home. Bree is crated during the day while the owners are gone, but is left out while they are at home. She can be crated 8 to 10 hours with no problem. She stated Bree has never met a stranger. She loves playing with the owner's son. She was super sweet the minute I walked in the door. She did stand up on me, but not in a jumpy way. She is house and crate trained. She has no issues being bathed. She is fine for nail trims, but they do need a good trimming. The only exercise she gets is playing in her backyard, but she does have several other dogs to play with. She seemed to me to have a medium energy level. She does love to wrestle around with the other dogs in the house. She is not possessive with toys. She is currently eating Beneful. She went to Petsmart for two years for training. I do not think they have continued to work with her. She did sit for me several times. Seemed fine on a leash and kept looking back for her mama. She really doesn't have any disciplining methods as she really does not need any. The owner stated Bree has no aggression whatsoever. I did not see anything that would not make this girl very adoptable. She was very friendly with me and after about 10 minutes of me petting and loving on her she just went and laid down. She did say if she leaves her free to room while she's gone she will tear up papers and be mischievous. She is up to date on vaccinations as of March 2017. She was heartworm tested in March. It was negative, but she is not on preventative currently. Bree would make a wonderful addition to someone's family. Owner reported nothing that should be a problem for a new family. She has been around cats and just wanted to play a little rough. I did see one small lump on the back leg. The owner stated the vet said it was just a fatty mass. She loves all children and loves to go for rides in cars. She is not bothered at all by lightning. Owner recently took her to the vet for shots, she has no known illnesses or injuries.

Other Info: Layla is a 6 year old medium sized spayed flashy fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. Layla was originally evaluated in 2016. Owners were looking to place her into a home that could give her more quality time as they had a very young child at the time along with an older son about 8. There also resides another pet in the home with Layla that was more dominant, and they are worried this could cause issues around the children. Layla was also listed as being fearful of men but not aggressive. *UPDATE* Today Layla still resides with the same Family, there has never been an issue with the children or any major concerns with the other Family pet. Layla was still a little shy towards a male assistant and myself, but that lasted 5 minutes before she snuggled in for kisses. Layla is a sweetheart who has pretty much been placed on the back burner. She needs our help. she is kept inside crated when owner is away. There are no issues with crating. Layla is well behaved. Layla is very loving towards everyone once she knows she is safe. She is very cautious in the beginning but as soon as she gets close enough, she immediately reaches up with kisses to the face. She loves the attention and is ever so sweet. Layla is house and crate trained. Layla is good for bathing and nail trims. Layla doesn't get much one on one attention, she has the yard to play in and enjoys her toys. The times she has gotten out of her yard, she walks around to the front area and waits for her owners by the garage. Eventually she will wonder off and they have had to go get her. She is friendly towards other animals she meets and is considered the submissive type. I did not see a high energy level, she was more interested in getting loved on. Owners state she plays with her toys and in the last year has been very tolerant of their youngest child who is about a year and a half old. Layla is so very kind and gentle. The past year she has learned quite a lot. I think she is the sweetest. I took her for a walk alone away from Family and she did wonderful, a little sad and confused, but she followed well and trusted well. Layla is very loyal and needs a Family who will love her and comfort her. She is not possessive with her toys. She currently eats dry food and has no food restrictions. She sits on command and gives hand shakes. She is much better on leash and walks very well. No other training shown. She is disciplined using verbal correction, Layla minds well. She has never been aggressive or possessive. Layla needs slow introductions, for Layla's sake. She has a very gentle spirit, but once comfortable her Boxer spirit is very playful. She is up to date on vaccinations. Layla is timid when it comes to strangers, but very quickly moves in for kisses. No other problems seen. No injuries or illnesses, Layla looks very healthy. Normal weight and has all the potential to be very playful if given the opportunity with a new playmate.

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 was happy and jumpy for the first 5-10 minutes, then he calmed down and was cuddly. He enjoyed being around us and wanted to be loved on. He does not have any aggression with toys. 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!!! Floyd does not have separation anxiety or storm anxiety per owner. Floyd was diagnosed with epilepsy and placed on medication a month ago.

Other Info: JuneBug is a 2 year old spayed 42 pound white female with natural ears and a docked tail. She does not have any known injuries or illnesses. JuneBug is up to date on her vaccinations (as of 9/16/2016); however, she is not currently taking heart worm prevention. JuneBug is house trained but she is not crate trained as she is able to roam the home freely. JuneBug is being surrendered because the owner's other female boxer, Lucy, does not accept JuneBug and will constantly voice her opinion. Lucy and JuneBug are getting into fights and over the last 6 weeks they have had to be constantly separated. The current owner has 3 boxers, a bulldog and a little lab puppy. JuneBug has also started getting into it with their 2 year old male Boxer, Tank. The current owners feel as though giving up JuneBug is their only option. When I met JuneBug, she was as sweet as could be and nothing but wiggles and kisses. She got along fairly well with the other dogs in the house, but craved that attention if it was given to anyone else. I did not see how she and Lucy interacted because I did not want there to be any fighting while I was there. All of the dogs are free to roam the house and have access to outside. None of the dogs are crated. Because of the current situation going on at home, they are having to constantly separate the two females. JuneBug loves all adults and kids. They did mention that she is cat friendly as well. Visitors are welcomed with kisses and a lot of running around the house. JuneBug loves the water and does well with bathing. The current owners have a boat and JuneBug loves to go out on the boat and go for swims at their lake house. It is unknown how JuneBug does with getting her nails trimmed. All of the dogs in the home get plenty of exercise. They have a big back yard to play in. She is also let into the front yard and does not go beyond the curb; she comes when called. JuneBug's energy is high at first but quickly calms down for a quick nap once all kisses have been given out and all treats are gone. She doesn't jump on you, but will get on furniture to be right next to you at all times. JuneBug is not possessive with her toys. She currently eats dry Purina food but the flavor varies to what has been on sale. JuneBug has not had any formal training. She knows how to sit and will do so for treats. She does really well on a leash and would then sit on command. The current owners use verbal correction. I never heard them say no to JuneBug or any of the other dogs in the house. There are plenty of treats in the house as well. JuneBug would take her treats to her bed to eat them. She shared her rawhide toy with they others in the house. I would say that JuneBug could be aggressive towards other female dogs in the house. She definitely needs to be the only female and possibly an only dog. She loves her adult attention and might become jealous. But there were three adults in the room and plenty of attention to go around. JuneBug definitely might need to be the only female in the house. It was mentioned that she does not like thunderstorms, fireworks, or gun fire. She will jump in your lap and bury her head next to you when she hears these noises. The owner's let me know that her tailed was completely docked about 6 months ago because of a condition known as broken tail and would constantly bleed if her tail was hit.

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.
