Rescue Me ID: 14-12-14-00486Roxy (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Roxy. Roxy showed up on our doorstep one evening. We don't know where she came from but she was malnourished, had a rope mark around her neck, and was producing milk. We looked for an owner to no avail. We had her checked out and vaccinated and our neighbors have been fostering her ever since. They can not continue to foster her much longer as her caregiver has been diagnosed with cancer and is getting treatment. Roxy is a very sweet girl that deserves a loving home. She will need training as she loves to jump up and gets very excited (happy excited). She likes to chase cats, so would be better in a home where there weren't any. I'm ... (Read More)going to say she'd probably not do well with kids either due to the jumping (she's a strong girl). She needs someone that will help her expend that energy!! She will need to be spayed but is current on her vaccinations. (Less)

Boxer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Buster was found as a stray along with his sister, who his foster has named, Bessie. No one claimed them, and we are guessing they were dumped. Buster is a handsome dog who we think will make a great pet. Here's hoping we can find him a home for the holidays!

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-04-00158Opie (male)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Opie was adopted from our shelter as a 12 week old puppy. He was recently returned as the family is now having a baby and have no time for Opie. Opie is now about 2 years old. Opie is a high energy boy that would benefit from some obedience training. He is okay with most dogs but does bark at them and plays hard. If other dogs are in the home a meet and greet is required. Opie has lots to offer to a family and deserves a second chance. An experienced dog handler would be best for Opie. He does jump up some so best with older children.

She loves hanging out with her family on the couch and playing with her squeaky toys.

Chata is perfectly crate-trained and housebroken if taken out on a regular frequent ... (Read More)basis. She is trained to sit for treats. She loves treats and will do anything for them - including smiling. Dropped off at Chicago Animal Care and Control, Chata had lived with a family with three small children.

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. Boxers were first introduced at a dog show in Munich, Germany in 1895. Boxer dogs are the sixth most popular breed in the United States.
