Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com
Another great source for information is Boxer Dog Planet at http://www.BoxerDogPlanet.com. BDP is an international forum full of Boxer lovers...any question you ask is sure to be 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.
