Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Abused/Neglected, Aggressive 

    Apollo was removed from his previous home due to extreme physical abuse from a man and has been responding to Cesar Millan-modeled leadership fabulously. Our issue is aggression. For nearly a month, Apollo has resided with myself and my grandparents who are 95 and 86 years old. Until today, he was aggressive only toward men and only if I was not with him. This morning, on his cable tie, Apollo aggressively claimed the house and would not let my grandmother back inside. He has not bitten while in my care but has a history of biting when he is being attacked. I would greatly appreciate help in finding someone with the time and experience ... (Read More)necessary to rehabilitate Apollo. Discounting aggression, he has a great character and has a wonderful heart. This guy is looking for a leader and a very quick study. (Less)

    URGENT HELP NEEDED--Rose was pulled from high kill shelter in Miami, Florida on 3/3/2014. She was scheduled to be killed within next 2 days. She was at the last back kennel in a room with long rows of death-row kenneled dogs that house about 60 dogs. By the time visitors reached her area, they had already seen the whole shelter (200 plus dogs there) and most people hardly even got to see her kennel--because it was so out of the way. She had been confined to a very small cell since January! She had not left that cell for one minute until we came along. She is a lover. She has a lot of 'puppy' in her and she can be calm and walk by herself ... (Read More)into her kennel when left open, or run around the house and throw her toys up in the air. She has gotten along with smaller dogs but I believe she is greatly fearful of bigger dogs and does become aggressive with them when she sees them At first until she warms up-I believe out of fear. Since we pulled her, she has travelled with us to hotels and is very loving with all strangers. She has slept with my daughter and travels fantastic in a car. We cannot keep Rose because she becomes obsessed with my cats. We have an acreage with about 20 rescued cats and she becomes deaf to all when she sees a cat. Rose is only about 35-40 lbs an so not a very big dog. She is a mutt of mutts and we believe she is boxer/lab plus a dash of pitt/terrier? She would be best in a home with adults, no cats and children older than 8 years old Absolutely no cats but yes we can try her with smaller dogs. Please help us give Rose a forever home and help her go from almost killed to a dream life. Right now she is at the best DOGGY DAY CARE--Half-Moon Kennels--but she can't stay there for ever because my funds are limited. Please help us help Rose. I can drive Rose anywhere in the country where she can find a great forever home. Please note that All dogs I adopt out first go for 2 week trial period. Goal is to see if it's a good match for Dog-human. Also dog can always come back to me if it does not work out. (Less)

Boxer    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Our dog a a great cuddly loving family dog. He is extremely protective. A neighbor kid was teasing him thru our window and when our boxer got out he bit him. The other day our dog batteries were dead and they got outside of our fence. They were in the neighbors yard barking at her, she just so happened to see our dog bit the neighbor kid. She has threatened to call the police if they end up in her yard again. Our biggest fear is the police will think he's aggressive and have him put down. We feel we can't let him out without us outside anymore, and always have to be on alert when someone comes on our property. Our kids are very ... (Read More)attached but know it's best he goes to a different home. Please help us find a new home. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Boxer in Iowa
    Boxer Dogs can make good pets in Iowa 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 Iowa 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.
