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.

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

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
Hi everyone it’s me Duke!
I am 2 years old and a very lively bouncy Boxer boy. I have to be the only dog in the home environment and I much prefer older teenagers as the little ones can misunderstand my intentions and vice versa. I am fully vaccinated, flead and wormed so I’m good to go with the right family.
Unfortunately, my last home didn’t work out and I found myself back with Rescue.
I wasn’t a bad dog in any way but I initially came into Rescue very unsure of myself. The lovely people really tried hard to help me overcome my fear of new situations and we all honestly thought I had cracked it, myself included but it simply wasn’t to be.
My fears are still there, I get very unsure of new situations and people and my reaction is to bark to scare them away, however when I get to know you or any new people I am very loving and obedient.
Well, I have been to school and was assessed by wonderful Kim Hunt the behaviourist who works with the Rescue and this is what she said……
“It is my opinion that Duke is fearful of strangers and if he feels they have entered his personal space he will bark and lunge at them in order that they go away. He believes this is the only way to behave when confronted with people he does not know. Whilst I feel
everyone should be aware that initially Duke may be fearful and vocal towards strangers, he may well settle once he has had the chance to get to know them.”
“Duke was responsive to play, food and praise and with a little further basic training and learning to trust someone to keep him safe, I see no reason why he should not go to a knowledgeable home. They would need to have the full information and agree to continue his
education after they had taken him on. They would need to be sensible to his fear responses and not take unnecessary risks with strangers. But I feel he could make someone a really super dog in the right hands.”
Aunty Kim made up a plan for me and we have all been working on this and I am so ready for a comfy sofa with a human who will reassure me; my training must continue on a daily basis and you must be patient with me and allow me time to adjust to a new environment again.
At the kennels I have been working on this, along with sit/stay/leave/come and paw and Uncle Mark says I am fab at this and my training is working! I have also started giving kisses…..whit woo.
If you think you have room in your heart and home for me and you are willing to carry on my training then please contact the Rescue either via the website, Facebook or telephone the main rescue number 07747311624.
Maybe I will wake up Christmas morning and find my presents under your tree..?

Hello I’m Scarlett
I have been in foster since March but now I am ready for Adoption. I am a young loving 3 year old girl who could possibly live with a placid male dog and/or children OVER the age of 12.
My Foster mom took me in and helped the Rescue sort my medication out, you see I am a bit embarrassed to say that I am incontinent. My meds work well though, my vet Charlotte is very pleased with my progress, however I do still wear pretty knickers at night.
I have enjoyed my time with my foster mom and I go to work with her at the hair salon and get lots of attention. The Rescue and I are very grateful to her for helping me and loving me but now it's time I venture out and see if there's someone out there who will be my furever family and
carry on with my meds.
Do you think you can be my special someone? Please give the rescue a call on 07747311624 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact any member of the team. I am pawsitive you will love me!
Lots of licks Scarlett x
Hi, I’m Dexter
Well I’ve been such a good boy in kennels and all my assessments have gone really well…. and guess what the lovely people at NAYBR say I am ready for my Fur-ever home.
So what can I tell you…..firstly look past my frosty chops as I am only 8 years old and I love to play. I love human company and my favourite things are my jolly ball, rolling in the grass, cuddles and cheese.
The rescue think I could live with another dog although careful introductions are needed as ever, I walk well on a lead, but I am can be a strong boy when I see things I like.
I travel well in the car and have enjoyed my walks with the other pups when we can get out.
I have lived with children in the past but as I am now a senior boxer the rescue feel it would be better with older children now, so if you feel you have a Dexter shaped place in your heart and room on a sofa for me please contact one of my friends at the rescue.
Love and cuddles Dexter xx
