FANCY here and I'm a 3yr old boxer girl.  Believe it or not I can hear just fine!  My family had me since I was little but things are changing and they are not able to keep up with my needs as a young boxer, but they did contact the wonderful rescue people to help find me a new family. I am house and crate trained.  I love to play catch with balls of ANY size!  I love to run, play, cuddle, hug, play with toys and my favorite thing is PEANUT BUTTER!!

As a young boxer, I will have all of the KEY boxer traits of being fun-loving, bright, and active.  As Boxers, we were the first dogs trained in Germany to be police dogs, so we are used to working.  What that means is that I need exercise every single day.  Take me for a walk or play frisbee or throw the ball for me and then I'll be ready to hang out with my humans for the rest of the day.

YES, we Boxers love humans.  As Boxers, one of our key needs is to be with our humans and get our loves and affection.  This makes our whole body happy and we wiggle and twist, which is often referred to as the Boxer peanut move!

Remember, we Boxers are strong, quick, and busy.  We are always on the move and eternally curious.  We need plenty of exercise and we enjoy mental challenges…like how to open a door when you are not home, or how to find the last piece of dogfood that slide under the refrigerator!

I will need exercise every day.  So, take me for a walk or a run or throw that ball and once I have done my exercise, I'll be ready to sit back and relax and watch you cook dinner, clean the house, or pay the bills. 

I will be a great companion as long as you provide me with the exercise and mental stimulation that I need each day.

If you are looking for an emotionally secure, mutually satisfying, low maintenance relationship then I am the girl for you.  I've got the whole package - smart, furry, four legs, love to learn and live to please.  Go ahead, teach me anything.  Boxers are very smart and love to learn. 

Stay tuned for more information about me or if it is LOVE at first sight, please complete an application for ME!  I will love you more than you can imagine.

About Houston Boxer Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

OUR MISSION
Houston Boxer Rescue (HBR) was born out of a deep love for the Boxer breed and a desire to help end the suffering of boxers due to neglect, abuse, or abandonment. We dedicate ourselves to insuring that the dogs in our program get the second chance they deserve and never find themselves lost, alone, or abused again.
___________________________________________

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit all volunteer, total foster care (no kennel facility) organization. HBR is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, health, and re-homing of abused, abandoned, neglected, or owner surrendered boxers inside the Houston Metroplex and beyond.

No officer or volunteer within Houston Boxer Rescue is compensated for their services. Rescue is a commitment of the heart, a labor of love. We are serious about changing the lives of boxers that come through our program.

Our goal for the dogs we rescue is a loving and secure forever future in a home that has been vetted by an experienced volunteer. We strive to match the needs and character of a particular animal to the home environment of an approved adopter.

Houston Boxer Rescue depends totally upon donations from like-minded, compassionate people. If you are an individual, a business, or a corporation that believes in our mission, please consider a tax deductible contribution today. Remember to inquire as to whether your work place supports matching donations.

Experience the joy that results from saving the life of a boxer!


Thank You,
Board of Directors: Houston Boxer Rescue

Our Adoption Process...

How the Adoption Process Works

An adoption application must be completed by every prospective family. Why, you ask? Because we consider you pivotal to the successful forever future of a VIB (Very Important Boxer)! You may fill out an online application or if you e-mail us, we will supply a Word document to fill out.

Please be patient with our nosy questions. We understand the application is lengthy however, each question has a reason behind it. A complete application helps us discern the perfect match for your family! It also demonstrates a level of commitment on your part. Our boxers are not "just dogs" and our adoptive families are not "just people"!

An incomplete application form must be sent back to you. This causes delay and disappointment, two words we would rather not have associated with your HBR experience. Let's work together!

Continue to check the e-mail address from which your application was submitted. When your application is processed, we will attempt to make contact both by e-mail and phone. Keep in mind we are an all volunteer group. Although we have families and jobs that take precedence in our lives, we work hard to save the breed we love! We are committed to doing our best to facilitate the adoption process and make it as pleasant as possible!

When the application is received a volunteer will contact you to schedule a Home Visit. There is a $25.00 Home Visit donation which is nonrefundable and considered a charitable donation for tax purposes. (Note: If you complete an adoption, the $25.00 will be deducted from the appropriate Adoption Donation listed below) This policy is in effect for reasons we will be glad to discuss with you when we meet.

The Home Visit Volunteer will be your point of contact within HBR until such time you are assigned another volunteer (due to scheduling or geographical reasons), or your adoption is completed. Pending approval, an appointment will be set for you, (a Very Important Person), to meet our Very Important Boxers!

Once you have had the Home Visit please do not confuse us by submitting questions via info@houstonboxerrescue.org . This too will delay the adoption process. Your Home Visit Volunteer will be more than happy to assist you!

Each HBR dog will be fully vetted, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and if necessary treated for heartworms prior to adoption. We are committed to disclosing any and all information we obtain concerning every dog in our program, to the prospective adopter. You will receive veterinary records, rabies certificate, identification tag, and your very own wonderful new family member!
