Rescue Me ID: 15-03-24-00076Whitney (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lovely Whitney is a striking looking brindle girl, with a sleek, agile physique build for speed. She is a lean, medium sized dog, who is a manageable 30 pounds and just nine months old. Our shelter contacts suggest that Whitney is primarily Brindle Boxer, with some German Shepherd or Whippet DNA mixed in that streamlined her features, and elongated her muzzle. Her ears and tail are natural, and enhance her exotic look. Whitney, and her brother, Bobby, came to us from a high kill city shelter, where their plight raised quite a hullabaloo on social media. We agreed to take Whitney at Shelter request, but were unaware that her brother, Bobby ... (Read More)was scheduled to be euthanized the next morning. After a flurry of frantic text messages and emails, we were able to snatch up Bobby as well, and reunite the pair at our country rescue. Whitney and Bobby were picked up as city strays and transported to the unforgiving shelter environment, where their good natures seem to carry them through the chaos and uncertainty that other dogs can't withstand. The behavior evaluations that these two received were simply outstanding. They made friends wherever they went, and had many advocates networking on their behalf to get them into rescue, a chance at a new life. Whitney is somewhat bonded to her brother, enough to guarantee an amicable pair, should an adopter be interested in adopting both. However, we have socialized them separately so that they can be adopted apart and integrate beautifully into another multi-dog home. Whitney likes other dogs, but may be too high energy to live with senior dogs or cats. As a spirited puppy, Whitney is at an impressionable stage in her development. She is a high energy dog that needs a lot of exercise and focused play time. She needs at least two or three brisk leash walks, and even some running, to siphon off her energy and create a balanced slate for obedience training. We have started Whitney in puppy kindergarten, and she's grasping the basics of the Canine Good Citizenship program quickly. Adopters will have a wonderful time continuing her training, and helping her reach her great potential. Just nine months old, Whitney is mostly potty trained, but needs some fine tuning in that area. She is nicely crate trained so adopters will have that tool to use during her transition. Adopters are expected to trouble shoot potty issues, since rescue dogs undergo such drastic disruptions to their routine, that they lose a good deal of their house training mojo during the rescue process. Whitney has an all-around fabulous personality, and greets strangers enthusiastically, but she is behind the learning curve in some of the social niceties. She is a strong girl, with a tendency to jump up and plant a big wet kiss on strangers; the 'off ' command must be consistently applied so that she doesn't knock Grandma to the ground, out of sheer love. Whitney is in excellent health, and has been spayed. She has been vaccinated for rabies and DA2PP (distemper, adrenovirus, parvo and parainfluenza). She has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been microchipped and dewormed. If you are interested in Whitney, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 720-903-0636 for more info. (Less)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, This is Leo, a 2.5 yr old boxer mix. He came to us in June 14 from an owner who was going to shelter him. Leo did not get a lot of socialization so he gets scared and fearful at time. He has had episodes of growling and snapping but again it is fear based I believe. He does not do well in large crowds and would be best in a quiet home. He loves to play ball and tug on rope toys but he can get over stimulated at times. We have a very active household with toddlers to great grandparents visiting and its not the best mix for Leo. We have another Boxer female and they are best friends. I think he is a great dog but would probably do best ... (Read More)with a trainer type person who can spend the time with him he needs. I don't think you will be sorry! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-26-00467Flyer (male)

Boxer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Flyer came into rescue quite by accident. He was originally owned by a band of Gypsies who were passing through a small Louisiana town when a rescuer spotted them. What caught her eye is that they were all on bicycles and one was towing a Red Flyer wagon with an unrestrained gangly puppy inside. When she chided them for subjecting the puppy to the dangers of street traffic, they asked her to take him as he was rapidly outgrowing the wagon. She did and brought him to the shelter where he was named Flyer after the wagon he spent so much time in. Luckily for Flyer, he is in foster care, where he spends his days playing in a large yard with ... (Read More)other dogs, both large and small. He has boundless energy and will definitely need daily walks plus some hikes and yard play in his new home. He does walk well on a leash, though his curiosity oftentimes distracts him (see video). He likes to play with toys, both fuzzy and squeaky, but he is not a retriever. Since Flyer is now approaching maturity, he should not get much bigger than his current frame and weight (75-80#). He is still enough of a puppy, however, to soak up new experiences and training to make him a valuable member of any family. He may be too big and puppyish for small children. He is so sweet and gentle with litters of orphaned puppies, it is so sweet to see! Flyer is housebroken and crate trained and has a gorgeous, shiny black haircoat. He's at the top of his game, so if you think Flyer is your "guy," please copy and paste this link in your web browser and fill out our online application, http://members.petfinder.com/~CT243/sampleform.html. All vetting included in his $325 adoption fee. We cannot be certain what his true mix is. Transport is an additional $185 paid directly to the transporter. (Less)

    Finnegan (Finn) is a one and a half year old, 70 lb, half boxer/half american bulldog. He is my best friend and due to financial/family issues; I need to find him the loving home he deserves. Finn loves playing outside but is the best cuddle bud you could ever ask for. Finn is great with other animals at doggy daycare and at the dog park, but he has always been the only dog in the home--so I am not sure how he would do with another dog sibling. Finn has never been around cats or small children. Finn is completely housebroken and crate trained. The adoption fee is negotiable--but you must be able to financially take care of an animal in ...

    My fiance and I are seeking to relinquish our 5 year old male, boxer mix that was rescued as a puppy. We are unfortunately unable to care for him any longer as he has demonstrated fear aggression with some strangers and will not be suitable in a home with children. He is not a 'high energy' dog but will run at the chance. He does very well with an invisible fence. He is very sweet, loving and just wants to cuddle. He would be best suited in a home with no children, however he does get along well with other dogs. He weighs about 50 pounds. He is up to date on all of his immunizations and heartworm preventative and we have all documentation of ... (Read More)such.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Boxer in Connecticut
    Boxer Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. Boxer dogs are energetic, playful and intelligent animals, they like to clown around a lot and will keep you laughing. Boxers learn new things quickly, and, at the same time, can be clever and stubborn. Boxer dogs bond well with a family, are very affectionate and get along well with children. Boxers need a lot of exercise, and will be well-behaved as long as they are taken on long walks every day. If kept confined without a lot of exercise, however, boxer dogs can become destructive. Boxers require lots of human companionship and should never be left alone for long periods of time.

Rescue Me! - HeIpingAnimaIs in Need.
Boxer
lnteresting Boxer Trivia Low-Cost Connecticut Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The name boxer originates from the fact that boxer dogs look like they are actually boxing when they play using their front paws. The boxer was originally bred from the English Bulldog and the now extinct Bullenbeisser. Boxers were first introduced at a dog show in Munich, Germany in 1895. Approximately 1 in 5 boxers are born white, and almost 20% of white boxers are deaf.
