Hello! My name is Derby and I am 8ys old. I know what you’re thinking, Wow he’s an old guy. Don’t let my age fool you. I have a lot of life left in me. My foster mom thinks I am pretty perfect because I know when it’s time to chill and when it’s time to play. She also said I have really good manners and I am a quick learner.  I love a good nap and if you cover me up I will hibernate like a bear!  I also love to go on walks and play fetch or tug of war. I get along with my two foster brothers who are also boxers. I am also good with children and I like to give them lots of kisses if they will let me!

If you are thinking about adopting, please take a moment to meet me. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Introducing Derby!  My name is Derby....I'm a strong but calm boy aged around 7-8 years old.  I was picked up as a stray and taken to the thankful now to be in the care of LSBR where I know I'll find a wonderful home! 

I just recently had surgery to fix a little problem with my leg.  Once fully healed, I'm going to be good as new!  I'm a very good boy who is good with other dogs and people of all ages.  I'm house broken and a great car rider!  I'm currently in a temp foster home while I heal.  While it's great to be out of the kennel and in a home, I can't help but dream of a forever family of my very own!  And believe me when I say, I'm such a great catch!

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption donation for all rescue boxers is $250 (adoption donation for boxer mixes and silver boxers may be lower, for puppies the donation may be more). Our adoption process consists of the following steps:

1. Completion of an adoption application. This allows us to learn more about your family and lifestyle and helps us to match a rescue boxer with your home. You will be notified by e-mail or phone when your application is received by Lone Star Boxer Rescue. If you have submitted an application and do not receive confirmation of receipt within 5 days, please contact us by phone at 281-944-5727 or e-mail us at

2. Once the completed application is received and reviewed by our volunteers, you will be contacted for a phone interview and to discuss dogs currently available for adoption.

3. We also may conduct an in-person interview at your home before an adoption is approved. A non-refundable $25 application fee will be applied toward the adoption fee upon approval of your application.

4. After your application is approved, you and your family (including pets!) will be invited to meet rescue boxers.

If you have any questions about our organization or adoption process, please do not hesitate to contact us by email at or by phone 281-944-5727.
