About Our Rescue Group:

Buckeye Boxer Rescue, Inc. is a small, but growing, group rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing Boxers throughout the State of Ohio.

BBR is comprised of several volunteers working out of their homes. Love of the Boxer breed is what keeps our volunteers going!

Our foster dogs are behaviorally and physically assessed by our experienced volunteers. If training is deemed necessary it is done prior to the dog's placement into its permanent home. We want each and every adoption to work!

Beyond rescue and adoption, our volunteers welcome the opportunity to educate the general public on responsible pet ownership and care. We strive to keep abreast of the most current information and enjoy the opportunity to 'talk Boxers'!

We can always use more volunteers!! If you're interested in helping out, please email us at

We do appreciate that not every potential adopter has Boxer dog experience and we'd like to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to email us at

Another great source for information is Boxer Dog Planet at BDP is an international forum full of Boxer lovers...any question you ask is sure to be answered!

Come Meet our Pets:

We are not a shelter, our volunteers and foster guardians work from their own homes. If you are interested in visiting a specific dog, please fill out an adoption application. Once approved, we will make every effort to schedule a convenient time for you to meet one or all of our foster Boxers.

Our Adoption Process:

The following is an outline of our adoption process:

1. Adoption application filled out.
2. A volunteer will approve or deny your application.
3. If approved, your vet references will be checked.
4. A home visit will be scheduled and completed.
5. A meeting of the foster Boxer and potential adopter will take place.
6. When both the adopter and volunteer agree that the placement is a good one, an adoption contract will be completed and signed.
7. An adoption fee of $250 will be collected in most cases (there is always a fee, it may be lowered or raised dependant upon special circumstances)
8. You will pick-up your new Boxer :)

About the application:

The application must be filled out in its entirety. Do not skip any answer. If we delete your application due to incompleteness you will not be notified. If your application is complete, you can expect to hear from a volunteer within 48 hours.

Phone calls will not be returned without an application having been filled out, however, questions via email are always welcome and answered!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
