Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Kaesly! Boxer Hound Mix Approx. 20 lbs DOB Jan. 2017 Kaesly found herself alone and afraid in a high kill shelter in TN. We thought she deserved a second chance at a loving family and so we brought her to IL. She is now ready to find her forever family. Miss Kaesly is an absolute sweetie-pie. She's quite shy at first, but once she knows she can trust you, you've got a cuddle bug on your hands. Kaesly absolutely loves playing with her toys, playing chase and wrestling with the other dogs in the house. She sits and takes a treat very nicely. She's still perfecting potty-training, but it won't take long. This little baby is sure to ... (Read More)melt your heart. Kaesly would do best in a home that is semi-quiet and that has another dog to give her confidence. She will make a wonderful addition to a family that understands that it will take her a bit of time to get into her groove! Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. (Less)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet sweet, lovable Casey. We rescued Casey from a high kill shelter that thought she was pregnant. Turns out she wasn't pregnant but had probably had babies and was done rearing them when she was picked up. That means now she is ready to find her forever home!

She does well with other dogs of all ages, sizes and genders and likes to play with them as well as her human companions. She will also play well by herself and cuddle when it's time to settle down!

    Welcome back to ACL, Coco! Coco is a pretty, friendly goofball of a Boxer mix who was adopted from ACL as a puppy in 2013. She was recently returned due to no fault of her own - things were changing in her family, and she wasn't able to stay. We're happy to report that the years have been kind to Coco - she's an easygoing, playful dog who loves going for runs, playing in the sun, and settling in for a cuddle when they sun sets. Coco is a loyal girl who bonds well with humans - she's never met a person she doesn't like! Coco is not comfortable with other dogs, and she'll need to be the only pet in the home. At 4 years old, Coco is still a ... (Read More)pretty active girl, so she'd appreciate a home that wants to exercise with her. She's smart, too, so a training class would definitely be fun! Coco barks a lot in her kennel, but if you get her outside, she immediately shows you what a great lady she is. This girl deserves a forever home that truly is forever - is it yours? Email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org for more info on meeting Coco! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Boxer in Illinois
    Boxer Dogs can make good pets in Illinois 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.

lnteresting Boxer Trivia Low-Cost Illinois 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. Approximately 1 in 5 boxers are born white, and almost 20% of white boxers are deaf.
