Adopting a Boxer
If you are considering adopting a Boxer and you are not familiar with the breed, please ensure that you do your homework. This is one of the main reasons that Boxers end up in rescue..
We've more information to help you look after your boxer on our Help and Advice page
This is just a small selection of the dogs that we have in rescue needing new Fur-Ever homes. If you are interested in adopting please do not hesitate to contact us and we will assist you to find your perfect companion.
Our responsibility is to find each dog the right home it needs and so we will work with you to ensure the dog is right for you and vice-versa. We don't consider the best way of achieving that as simply 'picking one' as each dog and each family are different.
Our job is to make the perfect match.

It’s me Bruno……..
You may all remember I came to NAYBR in December 2017 and went to a fabulous long-term home in January 2018……….
So, let me tell you all about me, I am a very handsome brindle boy and will be 8 years old this November.
I lost my right eye age 6 due to Glaucoma but was managing very well. My original owners had me as a puppy but
bravely asked NAYBR to look after me as they could no longer be around during the day, due to work commitments,
and I was increasingly having to stay in kennels…….I really didn’t like that and in January 2018 I went to my new
home who have looked after me really well, and given me a great year.
I have had lovely walks, new beds, been to Funday and am truly loved but now my dad is having to work long,
long hours and again I find myself being left for longer and longer during the day……sometimes 8 hours +………
I am a good boy but do get very lonely and as if that isn’t enough, I am losing sight in my other eye and mum
and dad just can’t be with me long enough each day. Of course, if I lose my one eye it really won’t be fair……
mum and dad are devastated but feel that I need a new mum, dad (or both) who can be with me during the day and not leave me on my own.
I have lived with children in the past, but not for the last 14 months, and I’m not sure with my poor eyesight whether I could do so again.
I am still full of fun and am mostly OK with other dogs (as anybody who saw me on Funday will know) but
because of my needs, and the real chance I will lose my eyesight completely, the rescue feel that I would be happier as an only dog.
So, I and NAYBR are appealing for a new mum, dad (or both) who will be home with me more often, than
not, and are happy to guide me should I lose my sight completely (unfortunately Aunty Charlotte, my lovely vet, thinks this is very likely)
NAYBR are looking for a long-term foster for me and this will include food and the costs to look
after my poorly eye, of course if you really would like to adopt me (when my eye is finally sorted) that would be so lovely.
So, there you have it, please, please see if you have a Bruno sized space in your heart to look after and care for me……….
With woofs and licks
Hi everyone, my name is Sullie..!
I am a lovely 6 year old boy that came into rescue through no fault of my own. My previous owner didn’t have the time available for me so I was getting bored on my own. I didn’t know much when I first met NAYBR but I have been doing my training and getting on really well with meeting
other dogs and being well mannered. The team here would insist that this training continues as they are really pleased with how well I have come on. I have lived with children and am very friendly around people; typical boxer..!
The team were told that I am a bit sensitive to what I eat but it’s nothing medical, you would just need to resist my lovely eyes and do things one treat at a time.
If you think you could be my new family, then please contact the Rescue and they will help and guide us all through this exciting time for me.
Lots of love,
Josie is looking for a new home
Josie is a lovely and lively 8 year old and has lived with another dog which was her daughter, unfortunately after a while there was a power struggle and they had to be separated.
She is an amazing girl who will flourish being the only dog as she has so much love to give and needs the chance to show this in a dog free home. She has lived with older children but never young ones and as she is 8 it might be a bit much to expect of her to be with youngsters
Josie is very much looking forward to hearing from you
Hugs and licks from

Happy New Year from Bryan
Let me introduce myself...
I am a very handsome, young white boy who loves to learn and loves human contact, but here’s the rub I am completely deaf and my learning is through sign.
I am clever though and know sit, wait, no, and am picking up new signs everyday.
I will be 2 in March but unfortunately nobody really realised I was deaf until after my first birthday so I am cramming all my learning in now.
I can be very boisterous, so, the rescue team feel I would need to live with children over the age of 12.
I have been left for 2 to 3 hours in the past so have some confidence there.
I am mostly a good boy with other dogs and I am learning fast that it is much nicer to wait patiently rather than to try and bounce at them, as anybody who saw me on the Great Festive Boxer Walk will know. I even managed to walk with Cousin Kendal and he seemed to love me and as for
Cousin Rose; what a babe xx.
I could be an only dog as I love my humans and am very affectionate and trusting but I could live with another calm dog that could maybe be my ears and best mate.
My humans will need to keep working on my training and lots of advice can be given from the rescue team (uncle Mark has two deaf dogs and is willing to help me and my new humans), my training will need to be positive and reward based and I LOVE CHEESE so that really helps me focus.
Until I am at a good standard of learning, I should stay on the lead when I’m out and about to help me focus; hopefully this will only be a short period as I am learning fast..!
So that’s a little about me,
Love and kisses
