Hi Everyone,

I am Patch Adams. I am a white, hearing boy. I get a lot of compliments on my face...something about patches on my eyes. I was pretty skinny when my foster mom picked me up, but now that I get to eat regularly, I'm filling out really well. I'm also pretty tall. I love to chase balls and toys. I'm learning sit, down, paw and heel. I do really good at these when I get kibble for a treat. I like to be able to look out the windows. When I get really excited, I like to jump like I'm on a Pogo stick.

I am housebroken. I sleep in my crate all night long. If I whimper or bark my foster mom tells me "no" and to "lay down". When I hear her voice, I plop down, although I'd rather be sleeping in her bed. I like to play with other dogs. I do great with a cat that doesn't mind my curious sniffs.

The vet told my foster Mom that I'm about 1-2 yrs old. I'm up to date on my shots and I've received my heartworm medicine and I've been neutered.

The first step in adopting me is to visit and fill out the application to adopt.

On the website you will also find more pictures of me and be able to read all about me, and other dogs that are currently available.

If you think I will make a great addition to your family, head on over to the GO Boxer Rescue website and fill out the application. And be sure to mention my name, that's Patch Adams

About Go Boxer Rescue of Greater Ohio

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a collection of men and women, along with our families, which may or may not include Boxers, who come together as a group to rescue Boxers in need and promote responsible pet ownership. We do this simply because we have a profound love for the best breed. Our rewards are placing animals in need into forever homes only after our volunteers have fostered them in their own homes for at least 7 days. Some stay longer depending on when the foster home feels the animal ready to start its forever life. In addition to love, shelter, and food, our foster families provide additional training and reinforcements for these wonderful animals. GOBR continues to offer support to adoptive families even after our fosters are placed in a permanent home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We try to attend as many events as we possibly can within proximity to our volunteers homes. Many of our county shelters and local pet stores promote events that allow the rescues to come and show their wares!

Our Adoption Process...

A completed applicaiton to adopt is required for ALL applicants. We process them on a first come, first served basis. Standard information is asked for, such as 2 non-related personal references, a vet reference if one is available, and home visit. If you are a renter we also need landlord info to verify you may keep a Boxer.
Pervious breed experience is a plus, but not required. You must be at least 21 years of age to adopt and be financially able to care for a pet properly (annual checkups-shots and heart worm preventation monthly). An adoption contract is required. If you can no longer care for your adopted pet, it must be surrendered back to the rescue.
Our fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm test, and all age-appropriate vetting.
