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.

Taylor is a 3 to 4 year old spayed medium sized fawn female with cropped ears and a natural tail. She is not deaf. Taylor was the calmest girl. She walked out of the kennel with me just fine, but was still very disinterested. She seemed scared and a little aloof. She didn't mind me giving her love and hugs and kisses, but did not get excited or give kisses back. I think she needs some security and comfort and her little personality will shine. She was very calm and I think she would be fine with kids. She did not notice any other dogs when we were walking by. She was laying down in her kennel when I arrived. She was more interested in getting outta there than all the other dogs around her. She didn't seem to have any training. She did pull on the leash, but I think she just wanted out of the shelter. She wasn't lunging at other dogs or jumping. Cat test was not available. This sweet lady has recently had a litter of pups. Her nipples are still a little swollen. She had a couple patches of missing hair/callouses on her elbow, but otherwise her coat looked good. She is very skinny and needs some groceries. The shelter says she is heart worm positive. Her teeth looked great and so did the rest of her, except for being too skinny. This sweet girl just needs some love. She was so calm, I can't imagine her being any trouble to anyone. Someone did a bad crop job on her ears, but she is still beautiful! I think she would be a great girl for someone, she just needs to know what it's like to be loved. Her stray hold was up 9/15.

Update 9/18: Tyson has developed an eye ulcer that the shelter vet is treating and it is responding well, but the shelter feels he would do better in a home environment. Tyson is an 8 year old neutered large sized flashy brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is not deaf. Tyson is 78 pound sweetheart! He is happy and calm, gives lots of kisses and is a leaner. He is not jumpy. He is very curious about his surroundings and of the other dogs barking. He did not seem shy in any way or anxious that he was at a shelter. He came from a family with children. I think he would be comfortable around them. Shelter staff had Tyson in a crate in the office lobby so I was unable to walk him past other dogs. However, there was a very vocal small dog in the crate above his and he ignored it. I was unable to take him outside because there was another meet and greet going on outside, so I evaluated him in the playroom. Staff said he was a male dominant dog and growled and was aggressive toward other male dogs. The shelter staff suggested that he be an only dog. Tyson knows sit, stay and down. He ignored the "come" and "shake" commands and this could have been because he was sniffing everything in the playroom. Staff said he pretends not to hear when he is distracted and doing what he wants. He was superb on the leash and did not pull. Unable to do cat test but staff said he did not seem to be interested in them when he was walked by the crates. Two nipples were enlarged to the size of a grape and one other nipple was half that size. There were no other lumps or bumps. He is heart worm negative per shelter. He has a good under bite but his teeth are in terrible condition and could use a good cleaning. He slobbers and bubbles when you mention "treat". He is very treat oriented. He was neutered one month ago. The sclera of his right eye was reddened and when I asked about this, the shelter worker said it was not red when he was surrendered but developed while he has been in their care. Tyson was an owner surrender to the shelter complete with AKC papers, bowls, food, etc. The owner surrendered him because Tyson was crated for 10+ hours per day for the past 18 months and the family did not have time for him. The shelter said he was 8 years old but he looks to be older. It took him a minute to get going from the crate but he developed a bounce in his step afterward. He is a ladies man and prefers them to men. He barks when he needs to potty. This is a beautiful animal that I feel sure will go fast no matter his age. He was difficult to photo as he kept going down for treats instead of standing or sitting. It was a pleasure to meet Tyson. I will be happy to help transport him when someone steps up for him.

Other Info: ***URGENT DUE TO FULL SHELTER***

This is an 8 to 10 year old medium sized fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. She was sweet girl that clearly wasn't comfortable or steady on her feet, but she was giving a lot of wiggles. She was very friendly and happy to have someone loving on her. I think she would LOVE some kids! She went nose to nose with the dog in the kennel next to her, and it was all nub wags. We asked her to sit, and you could see that she knew how to and was trying, but she was uncomfortable, and her hind leg was clearly hurting her. We weren't allowed to leave the injured dog area, so we couldn't cat test. Her hind leg was obviously causing her discomfort, we rubbed up and down the leg and there was no obvious leg break or area that caused her pain, so maybe a torn ACL. She would put it down as a stabilizer but wouldn't really put any pressure on it. She has a couple of skin tags. She does have a small urinary leak/drip. Her heart worm status is unknown. This sweet girl still has so much wiggle in her. She just wanted to get in our lap and give kisses.. She could really make someone happy, as she still has a lot of love to give.

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: Apollo is an 8 year old neutered 72 pound flashy brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered because the owners feel they do not have the time to devote to him that he needs or deserves. Also, they are afraid he will knock down their 1 year-old daughter. Apollo is allowed free roam of the house while owners are away and while they are home without incident. He is not left alone for long periods of time generally, but has been able to hold his bladder for up to 12 hours without an accident. Owners stated he loves people of all sizes! He is a very friendly boy and happy for the attention he received from us. There is a one-year-old in the home and he allows her to take toys away from him, laying on him and love on him without any issues. He is house trained and not crate trained. He does not really like the bathing process, but tolerates it without any issues once you get him in the bath. He does well for nail trims. He is walked daily for short periods. He has access to a yard, but doesn't like to go out much. For an 8 year-old boy, he has quite a bit of energy. He seemed very happy and did a lot of beaning while we were there. Owners stated he likes to play with toys and will play ball. He is not possessive with toys. He currently eats Authority dry rice and lamb food. He is given approximately 3 cups daily in the morning and grazes throughout the day. Apollo knows commands of sit, down and stay. While walking if another dog approaches and he is given the command to sit, he will stay put until the dog has passed him. He did have some training with a friend of the owners on how to walk well on the leash. His leash walking behavior is good. Owners use verbal correction or snap their fingers for discipline. Apollo does not have any aggression with regards to his food or toys. The little girl in the home will put her hands in his bowl while he is eating and he allows her to do so. When playing with his ball, he will give a playful growl and owners indicated this is not due to aggression. Apollo will nip at your feet when you are trying to leave the home. It did not seem aggressive, more like he didn't want us to go and his way of saying so. Owners stated when they first adopted him he lunged at other dogs and they thought he might be dog aggressive. They also felt he had not been socialized. He has been through training and now will sit and listen to commands while other dogs walk passed him. He does run and bark at the fence in the backyard with the neighbor dogs. He is up to date on vaccinations and is not currently on heart worm prevention. Apollo was a sweet boy who was so excited to see us. His tail was constantly moving while we were there and he couldn't get enough loving from us. He allowed us to thoroughly check him over without any issues. He is chipped and recently had his teeth cleaned. He does not counter surf nor is he a runner. His coat is pretty and thick, and he is physically in good shape. He has a lot of Boxer spirit. Apollo's canines are broken and he has a scar on the back of his neck. Current owners adopted him from another individual a couple of years ago and they think these are due to his being crated. They feel he probably has crate anxiety even though they have not crated him. Apollo seems nervous during storms, but he is not destructive. No illnesses or injuries the owners are aware of.

Other Info: ***Update 8/15: Owner needs him rehomed ASAP. Her husband has had surgery on his back and hurt himself bathing him last week. They have him listed on other rehoming sites also, but really need our help soon.*** Cash is a 9 year old 65 pound neutered fawn male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered due to his owner having health issues and financial concerns concerns. Cash is a very good boy when his owners are away. He is left out and about as they feel that he doesn't require crating. Cash is good with children of all ages. He was a bit nervous when he initially saw me, but warmed right up to me after I gave him some treats. He has the boxer lean mastered. He enjoyed being petted. He even gave me gentle kisses. The owners say the only time he barks is if there is someone he is not familiar with in the neighbors yard. Cash is housetrained. He will let you know when he needs to go outside by coming and just staring at you so you let him out. He was crated when he was younger, but hasn't been crated in years. Owner said he was good in the crate when he was crated. He does not enjoy getting bathed. He is taken to the groomers for nail trims without any issues. His quicks were rather long. As the current owners are physically unable to walk him, the only exercise he currently receives is in the backyard. He is low energy and would be happy as a lark just to be with his people. When there are other dogs around, he will play with the other dog. He has always been very low key per the owners. He will play bow when he wants to play. He doesn't play with toys. Cash has never showed any aggression over food, people, or toys. Cash is currently eating dry kibble (Purina One). He also gets treats twice a day. He has never been to any formal training. He walks well on a leash. Cash doesn't need to be disciplined very often, but if he does, they use verbal correction ..."no sir" usually does it. He is not allowed on furniture. Cash was a pretty chill boxer that enjoyed being loved on. He currently does not exhibit any unwanted behaviors. He is due for his rabies vaccination. Owner was going to look into a low cost rabies clinic to get him UTD in his rabies vaccination. He was given a HWP while I was there. Owner was under the impression that he was to only receive HWP every three months. Cash does have some anxiety when it storms or with loud noises. He just gets as close as he can to his people for comfort. He recently had an episode of diarrhea but has been quite healthy per owner. He does have a lump on his left upper leg. He did also have a small growth in his right upper leg.

Other Info: Halo is a 5 year old neutered flashy fawn smaller male with natural ears and a docked tail. He is being surrendered due to the fact he is with a small non breed specific rescue. He is in a foster home that has smaller dogs. He was left alone briefly with another foster (a small poodle). When the foster mom returned, the smaller dog had been injured and did not survive his injuries. He has always done well with the others in his household, so they are not sure if he was trying to play or if there was a fight. The dog that was injured was known to growl and snap at other dogs, so this may have played into the situation. They do not have anywhere else to move him and are looking for boxer rescue help. He is indoor and outdoors when the owner is home. He sleeps in side. He is crated if the other small dogs are out. He loves kids (including a 6 and 8 yr old). No problems with visitors. Will bark occasionally until he is introduced to a new person. He is house and crate trained. He has not been bathed since he has been in rescue, so unknown how he behaves for this. Unsure how he is for nail trims. He runs around in the yard with another boxer and a large boston terrier for exercise. He has medium level energy. He did jump on me once or twice, but was easily redirected. The boston terrier was chasing him around the yard and biting on his ear with no reaction from Halo. He is not possessive with toys. He eats Iams dry, a little amount of pedigree wet on top. He walks well on a leash. He knows "sit" command. He is disciplined using timeouts in his kennel. There would be no problem taking toys away from him. A foster home or adoptive home would need to know to use caution around small dogs with him. He is up to date on vaccinations and taking heart worm prevention, but is heart worm positive. He seems like a sweet dog! He had no reaction to the owners boston terrier.

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: ***URGENT DUE TO FULL SHELTER AND CONDITION***

Update 9/23: Tag has been sent, waiting on confirmation. Terra is a 2.5 year old medium sized brindle female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. She was very timid and scared. Barely got a Boxer wiggle of her docked (longer than usual) tail. She is so sweet and never jumped. She was very shy and never once tried to jump, possibly due to her health. I think she'd probably be okay with kids once healthy and settled. She is very unsure of herself right now. Per shelter, she was in the shelter in March 2016 and in good condition, unlike now. They said she's a total sweetie, not reactive to other dogs, and really needs medical help. No training evident, not even sit. Wouldn't take treat in greeting room and I wasn't able to take her out. She was very calm to be in such bad shape though. Very emaciated, bad limp back left, very enlarged nipples. Very in need of a bath. Shelter said she's really declined compared to last time they had her a year ago. She was scared, sweet and seemed to have very little Boxer spirit left for such a young girl. She has obviously had it super tough, and deserves a chance at a real life with a loving home and some groceries.
