Rescue Me ID: 16-02-12-00256Houdini (male)

Boxer    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Looking for a good, loving home for my Houdini. An 8 year old male Boxer who JUST lost his brother, very unexpectedly. :-( My poor boy is in mourning, as he has never spent a day alone (without his brother, Ralphie) in his 8+ years. He is a good boy. Alert & energetic, but NOT hyper. Sweet, handsome face. Loves to play & cuddle. He was originally an indoor dog, but he has spent the majority of his adult years as a mostly outside dog, so he will need a refresher course in house manners, but I imagine he'll readjust fine to the indoor life, if that's what his adopter(s) prefer. He does NOT fare well alone! He needs people around to play with ... (Read More)him or, preferably, another dog (of comparable size) to romp around with. He plays rough (heavy handed Boxer), so a small dog will not be a good match. He is about 75 lbs right now. Strong, healthy & very handsome! :-) (Fawn with black mask & white markings. Light brown eyes.) Both of his parents are AKC registered. He is NOT neutered & he IS up to date on his rabies vacs. It kills me to post my baby for adoption, but he needs a constant companion & I am mourning his brother's passing too hard to even consider getting another dog. NOTE: He may be ok/good with kids. I am not sure, as he was not raised around children & his style of play is rough. This doesn't mean he couldn't be trained to be gentle with them (or that he wouldn't be naturally). He simply has spent no time around kids for me to know, one way or another. He is accustomed to a large, fenced yard & is very good with walking on a leash, with either a collar or a harness. **Houdini is the one on the LEFT, in the forefront of the photo, with the white stripe between his eyes.** Located in Central Illinois. Please message me on here, if you can help rehome my boy or if you know anyone who can. Thank you. **The adoption fee can be negotiated** (Less)

    Lizzie is a lustrous black boxer mix with an adorable droopy squish face. Lizzie is 14 months old, and full of love and kisses for everyone she meets. Lizzie is an active, social girl who needs a home that will be around most of the time to interact with her. She likes to be where you are! Lizzie is smart as a whip, and she'd make a great dog for advanced training, agility, or nosework. This a dog who knows how to solve puzzles! Lizzie would absolutely love to be a second dog, because she ADORES playing with other dogs, or maybe she could go to doggie daycare and meet new friends. Lizzie will make a wonderful pet for a home with children 12 ... (Read More)and up that's looking for an active, affectionate, energetic training and play partner.

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Our newest cutie is Spot, a 2-year-old Texas transplant, possibly a pointer/boxer mix. He's a real lover! We think he used to belong to someone because all he wants is attention and love. He gets along well with other dogs, he's playful and friendly, and he has lots of energy. Spot is up-to-date on all his shots, he's micro-chipped, and is neutered. He's a cuddler, a 43-pound baby who's a lap dog! He spent several hours on a volunteer's lap while at a farmer's market. We think he is easily trainable and just needs a loving family to start teaching him some commands. WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR A FOSTER FOR THIS SWEET BOY!

    Pretty 'sisters' Diamond (black cattledog/shepherd) and Jane (brindle boxer/lab/hound) are both spayed 8 year olds and have lived together their whole life. Their owner passed away recently so they came to the shelter. We would love to find a home where these girls can stay together. The girls are friendly and playful and walk very nicely on leashes together! Jane and Diamond know how to sit politely! A house with other dogs might be good for them as they used to live with other dogs. Will you give them a loving forever home together? Current location Michigan City, IN.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Champ is a magnificently muscular, glossy, cuddly and well-trained, three-year-old, 63-pound, male black and white Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Champ is friendly and full of kisses and tail wags for his humans. He is however selective about his dog friends, and he's not good with cats or other small animals. He is perfectly housebroken, crate-trained and non-destructive in the home. His foster mom doesn't even crate him at all. Champ is a true athlete and would make an excellent running partner. He is well-trained and very food-motivated. He already knows the commands sit, down, come, shake and is working on ... (Read More)roll-over. He's incredibly snuggly and the best spooner in bed. He is not much of an apartment dog. He would love a fenced in yard to run and play in. He is beauty in motion. He loves his toys a little too much so he's best with indestructible dog toys. Champ grew up with a man who ran a rescue boat in the Fort Meyers area of Florida. He is a fabulous companion on the boat but his dad now is destined to be a sea captain and Champ is not allowed to come. Champ is extremely healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm and fecal-tested and micro-chipped. His adoption fee of $75 benefits rescued pets. To meet and possibly adopt Champ, please contact Char at Charlotte_Wahlers@nemschoff.com or 920-226-1666. Champ is only in Oak Park until Monday September 28, and if he doesn't find a home this weekend '| then he's road-tripping to the Tampa and Fort Meyers area of Florida to hopefully find a home there. Although he can be transported back to the Chicagoland area. He is looking for a dog-experienced strong leader who can guide Champ and love him for the rest of his life. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Buddy is a two-year-old, male, fawn and white Boxer-mix with warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian. Buddy gets along with most other dogs and is snuggly and smart. He and his sister were given up by their former family to Waukegan Animal Control when they decided they no longer had time for them. While Buddy is well-behaved and friendly, the family spent little time on formal training, so whoever adopts him should be prepared for some training classes to learn the basic commands. Buddy loves people but has a very strong prey drive so he can't live with cats or any other small animal. His adoption fee of $300 benefits the rescued ... (Read More)pets of Tails of Hope. He is healthy, neutered, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested, and on monthly heartworm preventative.

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.

Rescue Me! - HeIpingAnimaIs in Need.
Boxer
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.
