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)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Chata is a sweet, smart, and cuddly 12-year-old, 46-pound, brindle and white female Bulldog/Boxer-Mix a looking for a loving foster home or a permanent guardian. Chata loves people of all ages including children. She loves her ears rubbed and her tail is happily wagging all the time. She loves to go for walks and is happy with a yard as well. She loves hanging out with her family on the couch and playing with her squeaky toys. She is fine as the only dog, but she also loves other mellow dogs who are her size or smaller - not larger dogs and not cats. 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. They were moving and couldn't take her with. If not for LuLu's Locker Room Rescue, she would have been euthanized that night. Chata is healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested and micro-chipped. To meet and possibly adopt her, please contact her foster dad Martin at ammilligan@sbcglobal.net at 773-220-5924.

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. Boxer dogs are the sixth most popular breed in the United States.
