    I have these two Boxers that I essentially inherited but I cannot proprly care for them. They are pure bred and are brothers. I will not send them to a kill-shelter because it is not their fault. They can get a bit rowdy from time to time but they are good dogs.

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    All the way from Tennessee, Kara Bear is in the house! This darling little girl is a 5 month old 30 pound shepherd boxer mix. While she has only been in foster care a short time, we can already tell this little girl is sweet!! She appears to be house trained, does well in her crate and is learning to walk with a leash. While she does have some puppy playfulness in her, she also is calm and laid back and good natured. She plays well with other dogs; she is good with the house cats and loves children. Being young Kara would benefit from some puppy training classes and a family where someone is home most of the day.

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    We have two beautiful dogs that we are looking for a home for. Our professions have taken us away from the home too much for these friends to stay home on any given day too long. Cooper is a boxer/pit mix, brindle and loves treats. We have had him since he was a newborn and he is very friendly. Frisbee is his favorite toy and chasing the laser. Duke was rescued a year after we purchased Cooper so that Cooper could have a friend. He is a male American Pit Bull, light brown. He is a huge lover and lap dog. He like tennis balls and anything he can pull, to include his tire on a rope on the tree. We cannot separate the dogs as they ... (Read More)are truly buddies and play together. We are not looking for any compensation other than being able to see where they would live and know it is a loving home. (Less)

    Very sweet dog as long as she is an only dog. We have another dog that we have had since she was a puppy and can't let her or my son get hurt. She needs to be an only dog in a home with older or no children. She is very food with adults all the time once she knows them. We rescued her 6 months ago not knowing she needed to be an only dog. She was abused at her first home, neglected and not fed daily at her second home, we are her third and love her to pieces. She will need training to build confidence in her new owners.

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Sydney is a very loving girl. We took her in after her owner passed. Unfortunately her and my other boxer do not see eye to eye. She loves kids and is a good listener. Walks well on leashes. She is such a joy, but would probably do best by herself with a fenced in yard so she can run and play.

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. The boxer was originally bred from the English Bulldog and the now extinct Bullenbeisser.
