     We were looking for a little sister for our nine year old Boxer, 'Moose'. It's a jungle out there. After looking at different breeders we decided to rescue one. We are glad we did. We found Bonnie. When I was a kid, I had a Boxer called 'Bonnie', and that's her name from now on. Bonnie has breakfast in bed with the rest of us. She runs around in the backyard when she feel like it. My wife and I are retired, so we have a lot of time to spend on the dogs. We look forward to taking the motorhome out, to see how she likes camping. Whoever reads this; please consider rescuing a dog if you plan to get one. I'm sure glad we did. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Our family is relocating and we will not be able to bring our aging boxers. I have been trying to figure out what to do about this and came upon Rescue Me! Three days after posting both of my Boxers have a new home. This is especially special because that sweet angel lady took Laila knows that her best years are behind her and her hips are failing. The vet offered to put her down a week before and we decided to hold off because Laila is not ready. My family is so grateful. My family really misses them, but can rest better knowing they are in a good environment.

     Thank you, Rescue Me! My boxer, Layla, found her new home with someone who needed her as much as she needed him. I am happy to say that I believe that Layla will have a much better home with the very nice gentleman that came today. I remember her as a puppy, my sweet love. But as I grew older, busier, and became a grandma, I was not able to devote the time to her that she needed. Layla was and still is my heart and it felt like I gave away one of my children. Thank you Mr. Roy! I hope you and Layla have a long, happy friendship together.

     I would just like to tell Jeff, thank you for making this website I hadn't even known existed till I lost my baby Olivia at only six years old from heart disease. I had just adopted a boxer mix when my friend said she needed help finding a home for an older boxer that had lost its owner. And it couldn't have been a better match. He was lonely from losing his owner and she was heartbroken from losing her little boy. I would just like to tell Lori God bless you for taking a chance with a older dog. She said he slept with her the first night and won't leave her side. Just what they both needed. Each other. I will be letting everyone know about Rescue Me.

     When we put our Black Lab down in September of the previous year, I thought it would be a bit before I got another dog. Although I love dogs, I couldn't bring myself to get another dog, as I took our previous dog's death pretty hard. It was about six months later that my kids started telling me that they wanted a puppy which I tried my best to resist. It was after a friend asked me to dog sit for her, that I knew we would be getting another dog. I just hoped I could hold off until summer when my wife, who is a teacher, could be home with the dog more. I applied to a rescue organization for labs because we had declared ourselves a lab family, or at least a retriever family. We (really my wife and I) needed a big dog. We had both grown up with Springer Spaniels and when our lab landed in our laps, we decided we would only get labs. So after applying to a lab rescue group, both my wife and I started to feel like it was going to be a while before we did get a dog through this organization as the dog had to be good with kids and cats and it seemed most of the dogs were approved for older kids. She suggested that maybe I should look into other organizations. So even though we live in Virginia, we live very close to Southern Maryland so I googled 'Southern Maryland Lab Rescue' which brought me to Rescue Me. I contacted the owner with questions, she wrote back and answered them and an appointment made for us to meet Max. When we met him, we knew he would fit in perfectly in our home. It is now two weeks since we brought him home and our family couldn't be happier. He is the sweetest dog and gets along great with our kids and is learning to let the cats have their space. They say things happen for a reason and you need to connect the dots after they happen. If I hadn't gotten frustrated with the first organization and started looking elsewhere, I wouldn't have found Max and who knows where we would be. I tell my wife, I didn't know I needed a dog, until I met Max! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Rescue Me helped tremendously in getting my sweet dog, Kronos, into a better home. His new master owns a flower shop and Kronos helps by going out on delivery runs in the flower truck. He is also the store mascot and gets round-the-clock attention and love from the employees and customers, as well as his new owners.

     Tucker had play dates with his new Mom that lengthened each time. He now lives on 40 acres, chases squirrels, digs big holes and has made friends with the cows across the fence. He gets to hike all the time, helps mend fences and does not want to come into the house at the end of his day outdoors. He has the perfect Boxer life, one I could not give him living where I do now. The best parts for me: he has bonded tightly with his new Mom and I get to have play dates with him when her truck needs working on. We also meet up at the dog park where he recognizes and plays with me! It is a perfect situation all around. Thank you for the connections Rescue Me! I still love and miss my Boxer, but he now has a wonderful wonderful life.

     I listed Katniss on Rescue Me because several years ago I found a wonderful home for a Border Collie I was fostering. A young woman named Charity contacted me with questions about Katniss and within two days decided she wanted to adopt her. She drove two hours to get Katniss and as soon as she got out of her car, Katniss ran to her and jumped on her. That evening Charity texted me a picture of herself. Two days later I received pictures of the two cats who are now Katniss's siblings. Charity is happy with her dog and I am happy that Katniss no longer has to compete with my three dogs for attention. She has a wonderful home of her own.

     I never expected much from Rescue Me. But boy did they deliver! I posted a Boxer named Ayla who's owner passed and needed a good home fast. Within four days, I had two serious adoptees with several more to follow. This experience was so successful that we chose the first interested family after we vetted them ourselves. I will absolutely use this site in the future. We rescue privately from the street and the shelters when we feel they are at risk of being euthanized. This is a resource I will reuse. Thank you Jeff Gold and Sheila Schmidt.

     Taz was taken home by a wonderful family. They have even opened their hearts to the last owner who is sick and homeless, which is incredible.

     I was so worried about finding Cas a new home when it became clear that he no longer tolerated our other dogs. We spent the better part of a year looking for just the right fit. His new family drove four hours to meet him, and as soon as Cas and their 10 year old son met, I knew we'd found the right people. They had recently lost their Boxer and the son was heartbroken. I was able to send them home with Cas. I get to see great pictures and updates from his new family, so I know he's doing amazing! I never would have been able to make this connection without Rescue Me, thank you for offering this service!

     Once I found Rescue Me, I uploaded a picture of the stray dog and followed the instructions to enter information for adoption. It was very easy and fast. The next morning I received an email from the interested party, set up the interview, and the dog was in a good home within 24 hours! A great success. I also received another email from an interested party within an hour from the first. I highly recommend this web service for either side of the dog adoption process.

     Caesar found the most amazing forever family through Rescue Me! He knew immediately when the family arrived to visit, that he had hit the doggie jackpot with a loving family of four teens to play with. Caesar greeted them with slobbery kisses, jumped for joy over his new teenage boy, played fetch and showed off best he could. After some play time and bonding time, he eagerly jumped into the back of their SUV to make the journey into the hearts of another family that could give him the attention and care he deserved. Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping us place Caesar in the best family ever! They have been sending updates and photos of Caesar's privileged new life. It made the transition so much easier for us.

     As we all know, getting a dog adopted to the right home is hard. Getting a dog that looks 'Pitty' adopted is even harder, but WOW! We are so pleased with Missy's adopters. They were looking for a dog with her personality and aren't as concerned with her overall look. She has a great home and family who loves her and she is spoiled rotten. Thank you, Rescue Me! You have done it again! Our rescue is very pleased with every family we have found through using your website.

     We saved Tyson two years ago from being surrendered to the local humane society. When we took him in, we had no idea he had so many social anxiety issues. Tyson was not socialized at all and was very, very submissive/afraid of everyone. We kept Tyson and worked very hard these past two years to train him and teach him that not all people mistreat animals. He came such a long way in the two years that we had him and is so sweet. The only problem was our house was too busy for him given that we have four kids and lots of traffic in the house, which still makes him a little anxious. I had several families inquire in the past year and was not able to find the perfect match... Until yesterday. Tyson was adopted by a single person who has lots of time to spend with him to continue to teach and nurture. As much as he is missed, we understand that he will thrive in his new forever home. We are grateful for Rescue Me's helping us find the right match for this deserving, loving, boy. Tyson... HUGS!

     I just wanted to share my experience with Rescue Me. We have been looking for a new Boxer for several months and after reading Ivy's story, my husband and I took the steps to adopt her. Although she has a tumor, which will be removed next week, the Cleveland APL did a fantastic job of getting the funds for this operation and even allowed us to bring her home awaiting the surgery date. Yesterday, Ivy spent her first day in her forever home. She is such a wonderful dog and so far getting along pretty well with my other two dogs. After surgery, she will be trained to the invisible fence so she came roam our yard in the country with our boys. Again, I want to say thanks Jeff for starting this site.. So many wonderful dogs to adopt!

     Jack found a place where he is needed. Jack is going to be a service dog. Jack was very well trained, so we had five people interested in adopting him within the first week. We made him a Facebook page, so people could see more of his pictures and a video of him going through his routine, sitting, down, heeling, wait, etc., all off leash. He was professionally trained in a local prison program. He seemed pleased with his new family. The video was the key to getting offers for him. I am very sad to see him go, but there was no choice in the matter. Jack was very attentive and affectionate. Most of the people who responded to our Rescue Me post had a need for his healing ways. I am so pleased I was able to find a home for him.

I received a call the morning after posting Marley on Rescue Me from a gentleman farmer and his wife. Marley looked like their dog who died recently of a blood disease. They visited within three days and took him with them to his forever home. He now lives on a farm and runs free. There are horses, deer, wild turkeys and cattle on the land. Marley is happy.

They have a nice outdoor fenced area to play in, but they are indoor dogs that get to sleep in the bed with their caretakers.

He is so loved by the entire family. Thank you Rescue Me!!!

     We had two Boxers at the beginning of this year. In June our beloved Boxer, Bubba, had spleen cancer and passed away very suddenly. We didn't even realize he was ill. Our beloved Katie started having seizures. She had 15 in a very close amount of time. We soon found out that she also had cancer. We had decided at that time to wait a little while before we wanted to get another dog. But I was looking on Rescue Me and saw this beautiful Boxer that looked like our Katie. Her description sounded like our Katie, then I noticed her name was also Katie. I told my husband and we both said it sounds like we're getting another dog. We contacted the owner made arrangements to drive to meet her and fell in love with her right away. Her previous owner was very sad you have to let her go, but knew her situation wasn't the best for Katie and she wanted to make sure she had a good home. I appreciate very much your sacrifice and thank her for the gift that she is given us in this precious dog. And, I thank you also Rescue Me for allowing the opportunity for us to discover this beautiful new addition to our lives.

     Thanks to Rescue Me, we were able to find our son's dog, Thor, a wonderful home. Without Rescue Me, he would have rotted in a shelter. It would have been hard to get him adopted because of his size. Rescue Me was able to get him the exposure that he needed. We were able to find him a home two hours away. He now has a wonderful couple to love and care for him, a beautiful fenced in yard, and two furry companions. I am certain that he will be loved and treated like he is their own child. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I can't give this site enough accolades. I received inquiries within two weeks of posting Nickolai on this site. I was worried about finding him a good home. I feel that his new family will love and care for him as much as we did. Thanks Rescue Me for a great experience.

     My dog, Kooper, found a very nice home with kids he can play with. He took to them very quickly, which made it easier to let him go. Thank you for the help in finding him a forever home. Keep up the good work for the animals in need, Rescue Me!

     Our boxer was a typical boxer needing attention and extra love. We had all the love, but our attention to him was getting tight and was only going to get tighter with another child on the way. We still didn't have our fenced yard and daily walks are now few and far between. We debated whether to put him on a web site and taking him to a shelter was out of the question. We contacted multiple different rescue groups, but all of them were for dogs that had been abused and there was a waiting list for 'rehoming' a dog. We went to Petco and asked where they received their cats from and they said Rescue Me and we found out that they also rehomed dogs. The website was very simple to use and actually had information on rehoming dogs. So many other rescue sites had no information on rehoming happy, healthy dogs. We thought we would try it. Within 12 hours someone was interested in our sweet Bo Duke. I ended up talking to her throughout the whole day, sharing boxer stories and Facebook profiles. Come to find out that she and her husband have had boxers a very long time. Their lifestyle and their other boxer sounded perfect for our Bo. We ended up meeting and letting our dogs meet and they were perfect for each other! The moment was bittersweet because we were going to miss our sweet Bo, but I knew that he would be so happy and much more content with his new family.

     It was a heartbreaking decision to let Boomer go, but he is going to a wonderful family with more room to run than he has ever had. I posted his picture and information on Rescue Me, and the phone never stopped ringing. There are so many families out there who love the Boxer breed and are a great fit for any dog, I wish we could help them all.

     I posted my boxer's availability on Saturday and had a response on Sunday. We met the prospective new owners on Wednesday, and our beloved pet found a new home. I am so grateful to Rescue Me! We loved our dog, but at 71, in a cold and brutal climate, I was unable to give her proper care. She's found younger, stronger owners with a fenced yard. I'm sure she'll be very happy. Thank you, Rescue Me! A check's in the mail.

When we saw his picture on Rescue Me we just knew he was meant to be part of our little family. I'm very thankful Rescue Me introduced us!

     I am very happy to say that Rocky has been adopted by a young man named Nathan and his mom, Brenda. They were very nice, and Rocky seemed to like them right away. His little tail never stopped wagging! I have to admit, it was difficult to send him home with other people, but I think he is in good hands. Thanks to Rescue Me, I was able to correspond with a few different people and make the choice that was right for Rocky.

     Reese came to live with us about 24 hours ago and we all couldn't be happier. We found Benny, our precious, gorgeous pure-breed Boston Terrier on Rescue Me last December. We couldn't 'out walk' his energy so finally decided he needed a friend. The first try was a disaster. I'd ready fallen in love with Petey, it was harder for me than either of them. But after the first day, Benny wanted nothing to do with him, and they became aggressive toward one another. Precious Reese is truly a gift. He is so mellow, yet ready to play at the drop of a hat. Reese has been respectful of the cat, and of Benny, from the very first moment she came in the door. And oh, such a love! Reese is truly an answer to prayer -- PERFECT fit for our family! Thank you, Rescue Me for making this service of getting people and animals together that would never have met without you! (I wish I could post a pic of them sleeping here at my feet as I'm posting this).

So, thank you for allowing us to utilize your site to find the perfect human for her.

     I rescued Bailey. Fell in love with the face and love the breed. I have a two year old German Shepard/Pit mix with lots of energy and loves to play with dogs, cats and humans. My dog needed a friend to help with her energy when I wasn't home and sometimes when I am home. Bailey has fit in perfectly and is very smart and loving. She will love her new home and family just as much as her siblings. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Tyko is my heart. I love him more than words can say. I am sick and need treatment but can't leave him alone and I have no help. I could never just put him in a pound. I rescued him as a baby from a drug ridden and violent home. I needed a loving home for him so I posted him on Rescue Me and two days later I got a call from a very loving mom with two wonderful kids who really want to adopt Tyko and give him a loving home. So Rescue Me saved me. Now I can get treatments and get well while Tyko is living a wonderful safe loving life. All thanks to God first and Rescue Me next. Thank you to both.

     Finn found a very happy home with a young couple that came one and a half hours to meet him. Even though we used other sites to promote him, they found him on Rescue Me, which prompted them to do their research on the breed. When they came up to see him, they were already prepared. Thank you for your site!

     We love our Boxer puppy but at our advanced ages, we were unable to handle her anymore. We were so blessed to have a very loving family adopt her. Their 11-year old son fell in love with her and so did the rest of the family. She was able to do an 'overnight' before they made their decision. This was definitely a match made in heaven! She has a new bed and all new toys and treats. We were able to visit in her new home, she has adjusted very well and is so loved.

     Rocky is at home with two other Boxers at a home with some great people. One of their Boxers is dying of some sort of cancer and they wanted to find a replacement for the other Boxer they have when the other finally passes. Rocky was never around other dogs since I rescued him last September and when all three of them got together, it was nothing but playing and sniffing each other and a whole lot of peeing. Ha Ha Ha. They loved him and now Rocky is living with some activity in his life and some playmates. They even have a doggie pool!!!! Lucky Rocky! It helps me with my separation anxiety. Sniff, sniff! Rescue Me is a great site and I got a lot of response from my posting! Thanks for the service!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Ziggy has found a new forever home with a large yard where he can run and play! He has learned how to 'fetch' sticks and balls and there are no small dogs that drive him crazy!! You see; he thinks he is still a small dog himself; constantly trying to sit in my lap and he weighs 90 pounds, he would lay his head in my lap and cry because he didn't fit in my lap!! He still can't sit in laps, but he seems to love his new home, he's eating well and getting lots of exercise; so he has regained the weight he lost. Eats well, bounces around like a puppy and is happy and that is what counts! Ziggy is in a new Forever Home!!

     Hi Jeff, I rescued the sweetest boxer boy on Rescue Me. I lost my previous boxer boy last year. He was my soul dog-mate. He was the perfect buddy and I have missed him every day since and will continue to miss him until we meet again. I have been to the local Humane Society for a couple months now and our local SPCA and have not been able to find that connection or for that matter a boxer. I also submitted an application to one of the boxer rescues, which I might add turned out to be the worst experience of my life. Not to mention turn me off from most rescue organizations. I almost stopped looking, for it had a really bad effect on me and left me feeling just about worthless. It was the Monday after I dealt with this rescue that I received an alert from your site of a new listing and immediately sent off an email. With no response from her, the next day I texted her and found that my future new buddy was still available. I went to meet him that day and the rest is history. This was virtually hassle free. My boy is sweet, handsome and happy. And....I am very happy too. If I had to say one negative thing, which really has nothing to do with your site, but more about the people who use it. It really needs to be updated as to who has been adopted and who is still available. But that is more the responsibility of the owners. I have already updated this listing. For anyone who doubts this rescue....it is legit. Thank you again. - Celeste

     We had just had to put down both our boxers in the same week, one was 14, the other only seven years old. They were our best friends. I just happened upon the Rescue Me site yesterday and found a posting for a two year old boxer that needed a good home. He is a blessing and a big baby. We are so thankful to have our new buddy Tobby to share life with. He was a God send in our time of need. Thank you, Judy and Rescue Me for making our house whole again. God bless, Steve and Maureen

     I had to give my dog (ASA) away because I couldn't care for him due to having Parkinson's disease. I couldn't walk or run and play with him like I did before. I posted him on Boxer Rescue Me and was contacted immediately by Trudy Willis, who was very helpful in finding a home for ASA. In a few days she notified me that a Dorie Davis was driving to pick ASA up. She had found a family that wanted him. She assured me that the family would be checked out before they got ASA. She (Dorie) has sent some pictures and has kept me updated on ASA since he was placed in a new home. I am very grateful to Boxer Rescue Me for helping us find him a loving home and would highly recommend Boxer Rescue Me to anyone. Thanks again Boxer Rescue Me.

     Cameron came to animal services after her first family's house burned down. She was emaciated and heart worm positive. After she was treated for her heart worms and gained over 20 pounds while in foster homes, a family found Cameron on Rescue Me and fell in love with her, but she had been adopted the day before by a young couple who lived in an apartment. However, her first adopters returned her after only a few weeks, claiming they were moving and couldn't have pets. Cameron's foster mom contacted the family who had found Cameron on Rescue Me and just missed her. Amazingly, they hadn't found another dog yet. They had been devastated to learn Cameron had been adopted the first time and had felt it was meant to be. Cameron's foster mom immediately set up a meet and greet, and it was clear the family was smitten. Within 72 hours of being returned, Cameron was adopted by her real forever family, and she spent the holidays in her new home with a mom, a dad, and two teenage boys. She has a yard to explore and gets daily walks, and she's even learned to get along with the family's cat. Cameron owes her new, wonderful life to Rescue Me.

     While looking for a therapy companion for myself, I came across Bruno. His previous owners couldn't continue to care for him because of an allergy within the family. I fell in love with him instantly. We met with Bruno and realized he is a Mastiff/Boxer mix and that just added to the excitement. We brought him home with us that night. I have had Bruno for almost two months now! He is so happy, playful and such a good cuddle bug. Thank you to Rescue Me. Without this site, I wouldn't have found my therapy companion that makes the days that are hard that much better.

I am super satisfied with this site. Great loving and caring people all willing to take a new family matter on and give them a forever home. Hopefully, I won't have to use this site again, but will definitely recommend this site anyone who is looking to adopt or surrender one. Thank You For creating this site!
