Rescue Me ID: 16-06-21-00663Nancy (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Nancy is a beautiful 3 %BD yr old boxer mix. She was found in an abandoned apartment, tied up, starving, near death. We rescued her when she was 5 months old. We love her dearly and it is very difficult to part with her but she just is too overwhelmed with the arrival of our new baby. She is not happy especially since we have to separate the two and now Nancy often is not part of the family activities. We want to safely re-home her to an owner that has older children or no children. Nancy is wonderful with our 15 year old nephew. She is spayed, up-to-date on her shots and microchipped. She is housetrained and knows lots of commands such ... (Read More)as sit, stay, lay down, go to bed. She is extremely affectionate and will cuddle for hours. Nancy would do best in a home with a fenced in yard where she can run and play. An active family that has dog experience and a home with older children (teens) would be best. It would be nice if her new home could schedule some meetings with a trainer to help with bonding and also help Nancy learn how to meet and play with new dogs. (Less)

    WE WILL HELP WITH THE HIP DYSPLASIA SURGERY IF HARLEY EVER NEEDS IT. THE DVM DOES NOT RECOMMEND IT AT THIS TIME. WE DO HAVE XRAYS. Harley is a SUPER friendly, wiggly handsome guy who is very affectionate and loves all people. We are told he has a good history with dogs but have not yet tested this. Harley likes to chase cats so a home without them is recommended. Harley is young and energetic, he would love a family that has plenty of time to dedicate to his training and include him in their daily errands and activities.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-22-00551Nancy (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Nancy currently lives with her family which includes a newborn child. We have cared for her since she was about 6 months old. She now weighs 50 pounds and is a little over 3 years old. Nancy loves people -- she is VERY excited to meet you, but calms down quickly and is a sweetheart. She is non-destructive as long as she is not confined to a cage or closed off area. When Nancy does not feel trapped, she can be left alone with no fear of destruction. We can leave her all day at home alone (full run of the house), and nothing is out of place, no accidents, or any trouble. Nancy knows how to sit, lay down, wait to be told 'ok' before eating ... (Read More)her meals, and runs over to her bed when told 'go home!', and will gladly 'touch' your hand (no matter how high you hold it!) when told to 'touch!'. She is also completely house trained, and can last a full work day+ when needed. We love Nancy very much and are heartbroken to let her go. She should be with someone who is patient and loving and who can put in the time with her to get her comfortable in her new home. We are looking for the best possible home for her. Nancy takes anxiety medication. She should continue this medication in her new home, as it has helped her a lot. We rescued her from a neglectful/abusive situation. Anyone interested in Nancy should support non-painful training techniques. Nancy would make a good pet for someone that does not have other pets or young children. Nancy has never hurt a child and is very gentle and relaxed around our newborn, but we think a young child who doesn't have boundaries may over-stimulate Nancy. To see more videos/pictures of Nancy, you can view her Instagram account: You can see she can be a loving and wonderful dog. Please note that the descriptions on the photos are meant to be humorous and not necessarily an accurate representations of how Nancy acts or thinks :) (Less)

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