Rescue Me ID: 15-07-01-00257Jack (male)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Jack was pulled from a kill shelter in July of 2014. He had been adopted from the same shelter in 2012 as a puppy and was returned 2 years later so the family could adopt 2 new puppies. He had no training when I received him, and he has been a labor of love but is now a well behaved and handsome gentleman. He likes almost all dogs, but often will mirror the energy of the other dog. So if he is introduced to an aggressive dog, he can act aggressively. But he does very well in my home with 3 other well socialized dogs and doesn't cause problems. Totally potty trained, and leash trained. He can be very athletic, but he can also be a couch ... (Read More)potato. He's happy to be with his person, and is also content to be left free in the home or in a crate while you're out. (Less)

    Samantha About 5 Months Old Boxer / Lab Mix Samantha is an active puppy that loves to play. She loves long walks and gets along great with other dogs. She is said to be a social butterfly and loves meeting new people! 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 ... (Read More)away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details.

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.

He is healthy, neutered, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested, and on monthly heartworm preventative.

    Roxy and Buddy are two-year-old brother / sister fawn and white Boxer mixes with warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian - preferably together. Roxie and Buddy are not only brother and sister but best friends. They are snuggly smart dogs who were given up by their former family to Waukegan Animal Control when they decided they no longer had time for them.

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-20-00572Petey (male)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Petey is a very friendly, sweet, playful and lovable three-year-old, 64-pound, male, black and white Boxer/American Bulldog-mix with warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian. Petey is great with people of all ages - including small children. He's relaxed and not at all hyper or jumpy. He's wonderful in the home and leans against you lovingly. He is a homebody who loves being with his people. He loves a fenced-in yard, enjoys playing with his toys and is perfectly housebroken. Petey is extremely responsive to his people. He is well-trained and knows the commands sit and stay. His favorite treats are bananas and apples; his foster ... (Read More)family likes to keep him healthy and he is very food-motivated. Currently being fostered in Chicago's South Loop neighborhood, Petey is just not a city guy. He is reactive on leash and nervous in the city. He'd rather have a yard of his own to run and play in and a more suburban neighborhood without all the noise and congestion. So he is looking for a home that definitely has a secure fenced-in yard. He is currently living in a foster home with another large dog. He is best with male dogs - especially labs and bully breeds who don't mind his rough manner of play. Petey has a strong prey drive so he's best in a home without cats, rabbits or other small pets. Petey is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Animal Care and Control. To meet and possibly adopt Petey, please contact Kat at kat@fcacc.org or if you have questions for his current foster mom, please contact Ania at pniewska.ania@gmail.com or 312-730-6687. (Less)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bailey is a 2 year old American Fox Hound/Boxer mix. She was dna tested with proof of this exciting identity. Bailey is around 60lbs and is up to date on vaccines, microchipped and spayed. She is very athletic and loves to stay active throughout the day. If given a simple toy Bailey will entertain you with her goofy antics and amusing behavior. She loves to go on walks and let her 'hound' show by tracking anything that has left a scent. She has had extensive basic command training and isn't afraid to show off. She has good leash manners, but she could be better about not pulling. Her foster mom is giving her lots of time and love to make ... (Read More)sure Bailey can be the best at everything she does. She is crate and potty trained. When the day is done Bailey is a cuddle bug. She will climb into your lap if given the chance and nuzzle next to you. She gives soft kisses and hugs. She has camping experience, and would do great with a home that stays active throughout the year to keep her mind and body healthy. Bailey is the all American dog, a happy-go-lucky pup. She adapts well to her surroundings whatever they may be. She has a great smile and is sure to share her happiness with everyone she meets. She is great with other dogs and loves her foster sister Addie, a beagle mix, who she spends most of her time playing with. Her puppy dog eyes show her true spirit. One that will be loyal, fun, and extremely loving to anyone who gives her a chance. (Less)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Tank is a beautiful 5 year old pittie/shepherd mix with the most soulful eyes you'll ever see. Tank is a mellow, loving dog who's content hanging out with his favorite people. In fact, he's made a great office mascot for one of our volunteers, and I'm sure he'd love to be your 'secretary' while you worked. Tank is really funny - when he doesn't want to go outside, he pancakes on the floor and dares you to move him! He's chock full of personality, this one. Tank was kept in a crate for most of his early life, and he has a few scars to prove it. Despite a rough puppyhood, he's full of snuggles for his people and loves attention. He's not very ... (Read More)comfortable with other dogs, so he'd probably prefer to be the king of the castle. And after the life this lovebug has had, don't you think he's deserves it? (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.

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. Boxers were first introduced at a dog show in Munich, Germany in 1895.
