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.

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

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..?
