Rex is a breed that is becoming more and more common called 'Boxer Wannabe' -- he is certainly a mix but wants you to know he is every bit as good as a boxer. Rex is a wonderful mix of all things good -- playfullness, energy, hugs and kisses, and cuddle time.  Rex was around a lot of people and dogs at a recent MN Boxer Rescue event and was every bit a gentleman once he was able to get his initial burst of energy out. He just wanted to play with every dog he met and wanted to be petted by every person he met. There are two things Rex does NOT like ... cats and vets. He is afraid of small rooms and people in white coats. HINT: a vet. Rex needed to be muzzled during his last appointment. Rex can absolutely not come in contact with cats -- in the house, out in the yard, etc. You would never know Rex was an older boy once you spend time with him. He is healthy and has lots of life and love to give to a family.

About Minnesota Boxer Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

When Boxers are in need, Minnesota Boxer Rescue dedicated volunteers respond. Our mission includes hands-on rescue, as well as education.

Many of our beautiful Boxers have had a very "ruff" start, for various reasons, please be assured that we have dedicated ourselves to helping as many of these dogs as we possibly can.

When a dog comes into our rescue program they are examined by our vet, brought up to date on vaccines, heart worm tested, (placed on heart worm preventive medication) and fecal tested. All dogs are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. We evaluate each Boxer's personality and temperament, so he/she can be placed in the best home suited for that dog.

Come Meet Our Pets...

MN Boxer Rescue is 100% foster based. We do not have a shelter or central location where dogs are housed. Visit the events page on our website to find out about our meet and greet events.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process consists of:

I. Completing an Adoption Application

II. Veterinarian and Personal Reference Check

III. Home Visit

IV. Adoption Fee

I Completing an Adoption Application
We screen potential adopters very carefully in order to find the best possible match for both you and our foster dogs. All adoptions are expected to be lifetime commitments!

You must be a Minnesota resident, and at least 21 years old.

All existing pets in your home must be up to date on all vaccinations, and must be-spayed/neutered (no boxers will be placed into homes known to have intact companion animals.)

We require that you complete the entire application including the contact name/ phone number of veterinarian, and personal references.

We as volunteers would like to observe the interaction of the Boxer child/children together.

We will disclose all known behaviors, health or emotional issues to applicant prior to adoption.

Fenced yard is required to adopt a deaf dog.

II Veterinarian and Personal Reference Check
Once your references are checked, a volunteer will contact you to discuss potential matches and to schedule a home visit.

III. Home Visit
The purpose of the home visit is to inspect the surroundings in which our foster dogs will live, meet all household family members, address any major concerns, and get to know you better. (We are not at your home to pass judgment on your housekeeping skills.)

During this visit we will set up a date for you to come and meet the Boxer(s) you are interested in (we ask that you bring your family members as well as your existing dogs)

IV. Adoption Fee
Our adoption fee is based on the age and health of our dogs. The fee can range from $200 - 450.00, with $350 being the average. We will not negotiate adoption fees. This is not a "sale" but a fee that enables us to continue to help more Boxers in the future.

Your adoption fee covers:

Physical veterinarian exam
Heartworm Test and preventative meds
Fecal Test and any necessary worming
Microchip implant
Any other treatment deemed necessary by our vet

As you can see, our adoption fee covers numerous expenses. Your potential new Boxer will be
covered for all necessary inoculations for the first year. We will provide copies of all services rendered while the Boxer has been in rescue.

Please visit our website at to complete an adoption application and begin the process.
