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.

This is a 1.5 year old unaltered flashy fawn medium sized female with natural ears and a natural tail. She is not deaf. She was timid and scared, but wanted us to love on her, while she shook scared almost the whole time. She wasn't jumpy at all. I think the shelter / being a stray has her scared of who to trust. I think she would be fine with kids, especially once she has her boxer spirit back! We walked past some very vocal / lunging at the kennel dogs and she had no reaction. She was pretty good on the lead while we were taking her to the play room. She could sit on command, but didn't exhibit that she knew any other tricks. We weren't able to cat test. She has clearly had puppies, her coat is pretty healthy, No lumps or bumps. Heart worm status is unknown. When this girl feels safe, and we are able to mend her boxer spirit she will be what the majority of our AA's are looking for.

Hedy is a medium sized 3 year old unaltered flashy fawn female Boxer with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Her owners surrendered her to the shelter claiming she was digging, chewing on things and was very jumpy. During the evaluation she was shaking & scared. She was still friendly even though she was scared. She was not jumpy during her evaluation. She was just unsure of her surroundings. I believe she would be fine with children as long as she has time to decompress and feel comfortable in her surroundings. She did not react to the other dogs in the kennels as we walked by. Hedy would not perform any commands when asked. She did not pull on the leash as we were walking. There were cats that she could see behind a glass wall and she had no reaction. She could use a very good bath. She had no obvious lumps, bumps or missing hair. HW status unknown at the time of evaluation.

Smokey is a large sized 2 years and 1 month old unaltered fawn male Boxer with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Smokey was surrendered to the shelter by is owners shortly before I arrived to do so some other evaluations. He was quite confused. He wondered where his people were and why they left him in a strange place. He was friendly but scared. He kept trying to look out the window for his people. The people that surrendered him surrendered BIN 17261 (Hedy) the day before. Former owners claim he was digging, chewing things up and being jumpy. He was nothing but total sweetness. I feel he would be fine with children. He was not jumpy during evaluation. He was actually pretty calm (not very active) but he had just been surrendered. He did not react to any of the other dogs that were kenneled next to him. He came from the same owners of BIN 17261 so I would assume that they were good together as that was not one of the reasons for surrendering them. He did pretty good on a leash. He did know sit and did promptly when told to sit. He did not show me that he knew any other commands. There was no cat test available. It appears that in his prior life that he was an outside dog. He was in dire need of a bath and had callouses on his elbows, knees and ankles. He weight was appropriate for his body build. HW status unknown. He had no lumps, bumps or missing hair.

Other Info: ***Update 6/22: He is being boarded at a vet's office and they literally have nowhere to put him now through the 4th of July holiday. They are begging us for help.** Tank is a 9 year old neutered medium sized brindle male with cropped ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered because the original owner was going to surrender him to a shelter because they were getting a new puppy. A concerned citizen took him instead and brought him to an LBR vet for boarding. He was fine with me until the doctor came in. I had spent about 15 minutes with him. While the doctor was there, I got close to his face area and he lightly growled at me. The doctor said he was aggressive during his initial exam. I had given Tank some treats while I was alone with him. Once the doctor came in, Tank was trying to jump up on me from behind. I told him no and he stopped. He tried that again a minute or two later and when I put my hand in front of him and said "no". He stopped again and sat for me. The doctor said he was minding me much better than he was before. He also growled at the techs that helped get him out of the car when he was brought in to the clinic. Due to the growling, I would not put him with children until he has been evaluated. He might also do best as an only dog. It is unknown if he is house or crate trained. It is unknown how he is for bathing. He hasn't been bathed since he's been at the vets office. It is unknown how he is for nail trims. We didn't get to go outside, but he stayed busy walking around the small room we were in. He is eating dry food, unsure what kind. He sat quickly every time I asked him to, but didn't lay or shake when I tried to get him to. He walked well on the leash with the attendant. It is unknown how he is disciplined and also unknown how he would react if a food bowl or rawhide was taken from him. Something a foster home or adopter would need to be aware of is the growling he is displaying with vet staff and when his personal space is invaded. He only jumped on me until I told him to stop. I think he was expecting more treats. He was vaccinated on 6/6/2017 and received a heart worm prevention in January 2017. The doctor told me that they had noticed him straining to urinate and his urine looked bad. They did a urine sample but don't have the results back yet. He also has a long growth hanging down from his chest area.

Information from person that took him to boarding: He is housebroken and kennel trained. He grew up with a baby boy and girl that are now 12 and 7. He has never been around cats. His owners father had him for the last 30 days because his daughter got a puppy and he was aggressive towards the new dog. Until the last 30 days he was living in an apartment sleeping in the recliner next to his, and he was kenneled when he was gone. The apartment complex he was living in said he had to go as no pets are allowed. He is grumpy until he gets to know you. If you give him a treat, he will warm up to you.

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: 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: Hagan is a 60 pound 8 year old unaltered flashy fawn unaltered male Boxer with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrender by his owners, who recently moved into a small apartment. There is not a lot of space for him to roam around and he no longer has a yard to run in, which the owner feels is important for him to have for exercise. Also, their daughter was diagnosed with allergies due to the dog hair. Hagan used to be kept outside a lot to run the yard. Now, he is currently inside and has free access to the apartment. Owner's wife currently does not work and she is not usually gone for longer than 3-4 hours at a time. They tried to lock him in a bathroom once years ago and he started tearing up the flooring trying to get out. They think it was due to the confined space. He does well free roaming and just hangs out, not destructive. He is a happy guy. When we first arrived, he came right out to us, excited to see us and let us come right into the home. He gave us lots of kisses during the entire interview. He leaned a lot on everyone and we could tell he was very happy and healthy. Owner stated he has had a few incidents where he gets upset around male dogs who are not neutered, but he does fine with females and neutered males. He likes to chase squirrels, etc. so owner feels like he would not be able to live with a cat. He is house trained. He is not crate trained. Owner stated they give him regular baths and he does fine, tolerates them. He needed a nail trim and they stated they do not like to do it, but haven't had any problems in the past. Hagan is taken for walks on a leash and to the dog park at the apartment. The owner is careful around the other male dogs who are not neutered; otherwise, he seems to be fine. This pretty boy is 8 years old. I would never have guessed that to be his age. He is so spunky and has the energy level of I would say possibly a four year-old. He likes to wrestle play, but will stop when owner sticks out his hand and turns palm over for "done." Currently he does not have any toys, but owner stated in the past he was not possessive of them. He is fed a dry food good for skin and coat. At one point he was itchy and their vet recommended changing his food and it has seemed to help. They have had him on it ever since. He is no longer scratchy. Hagan has not had any formal training. He does know sit, drop (drop an object), stay and he seems to mind when they verbally correct him. He walks well on a leash. When he sees another dog or animal, he will pull, but they are able to redirect him verbally and with a tug of the leash. For discipline they use verbal correction and sometimes a swat on the behind. The owner stated Hagan does not have any food or toy aggression whatsoever. Hagan was very jumpy. The owner has two small children, which he does fine with, but I would recommend a family with a little older children that would be able to help with his training. Owner stated he does not have any separation anxieties or destructiveness issues. He is UTD on shots (5/3/17) and on HWP. (Sentinel given 6/4/17) He is a great dog! We were able to look in his mouth, look in his ears, examine his feet, and he just wanted to play and be loved on. He has a beautiful coat and looks to be very healthy and a good weight. I did not see any bumps or lumps. He has plenty of energy for a family looking for a guy who would like to take walks and do boxer burns in the yard. Owner did not state any worries or concerns for Hagan. No known health issues.

Other Info: Update 6/24: His temporary caretaker contacted me yesterday and let me know that she has been walking him in the neighborhood and he does great on the leash. He greets people nicely. Walking past dogs on the sidewalk he has no reaction other than to look at them. Passing a barking dog in a neighbors yard, he stood and stared, but showed no upset.

Derby is a 7.5 year old neutered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered due to divorce. There are 4 dogs in the family and it is not workable living in apartments. He has a secure home and caretaker until he can find a forever home. When the owner is home, he is free inside the house and in the yard. When they are away, he is inside or in the backyard. They have a pool and he goes in, standing on the first step. He is enthusiastic to meet people, go for walks, and go for rides, but calms quickly. He occasionally jumps on newcomers, but did not jump on me. Expect he will be fine with bathing and grooming and nail trims. I checked his mouth and teeth and he didn't react. He is house trained and does no damage when left alone, he is not crate trained. He enjoys walks and playing in the yard. In his previous home he also played with other dogs. His energy level is average. At 7.5 yrs he seems like a young dog. He is not possessive with toys based on stories about him and my observations, but he may be sensitive about food if it were taken from him. We played with a ball and he did fine. He currently eats Dad's Trail Mix dry with chicken broth. He has no formal training. He can sit, and respond to a few commands. His leash walking is good. Unsure how owner disciplined Derby, the current caretaker hasn't had to discipline him. He is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. Derby is very sweet, gentle and cat friendly. He likes small dogs and cats, and even sleeps with the cats! He does not like big dogs, he's had bad experiences. He's a beautiful boy, but has scars on his legs and paws, and damage to one ear from fighting with a bigger dog. He needs a loving family who will pamper and play with him. He'll be their constant companion.

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.
