4/7/17 Foster Update! Gloria is doing so well. She loves her foster brothers and human kids. She might be short but she can find food on the counters!  She is a couch potato who loves to lay in the sun on nice days. She loves her 3 miles walks and does super on a leash. Gloria has a wonderful personality and would love to find a forever home. Please consider adopting her.


My name is Gloria. I came into HBR pregnant. And My bond mate came with me. When they took us to the vet I thought I wouldn't get to see him again, but these nice people  took both of us in together. I was so happy to see him, I got my waggle back, even though I could barely waggle with being so pregnant. I get along great with male dogs, but not so much with female dogs, so I would do best in a home with only males. Or you could take Bill and I as a pair, please!  I am house and kennel trained. My foster mom hasn't worked with me on sit or lay down because I just gave birth to 11 puppies. That's right 11 beautiful babies. I am a great mother and I make sure my babies are all ok before I even eat or get water.  It's been 2 weeks since my babies were born and I am loosening up a bit, so now I just want my scratches for a few minutes then back to my babies. I only like my foster mom to hold them right now so if she is holding my babies and me, I am in doggie heaven. I don't have to worry so much about my babies being hurt, she is a good momma too.I am all to willing to climb on the couch with you, but I like to play with toys with my baby daddy. I am super sweet and just want to be loved. Scratch my head and I am so happy. I will follow you anywhere you go, My foster mom says I am clinger- whatever that means. I just want to be with you. I am a happy girl. I am even happy to lay on a nice soft bed/pillow beside you. Once my babies are big enough to feed themselves I will be the best, sweetest girl you have ever seen. Consider me for your next adoption and you won't regret it.

About Houston Boxer Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

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 . This too will delay the adoption process. Your Home Visit Volunteer will be more than happy to assist you!

You will receive veterinary records, rabies certificate, identification tag, and your very own wonderful new family member!
