Meet Hero, our newest addition to Boxer Haven Rescue. He may look familiar to you. Hero was previously adopted from a shelter. Due to some ongoing medical needs, Boxer Haven Rescue was asked to help provide a home and to continue the medical attention this beautiful boy needs. We are so happy he is with us! He has already been seen by our veterinarians and there are several medical conditions we will help Hero with.

Hero has has a rectal hernia, which we plan to surgically repair. He also has a lump on his head that will be removed and biopsied. He has been started on antibiotics to get him ready for the multiple procedures to be done all at the same time including his neuter. As you can see, Hero also has a lingering eye infection in his right eye and an active ulceration in his left. Eye ulcers, scratches, tears in the cornea are common in boxers so we are hopeful his eyes will heal, but we are unsure if there will be permanent vision loss. We will continue to monitor his health closely and he has a follow-up vet appointment on Monday. We got a lot accomplished on day 1 and have a plan in place! Despite all the testing and poking and prodding this boy went through today..... he is the biggest sweetheart and is handling it all like the champ that he is! Welcome HERO to the rescue!

There will be significant medical expenses for Hero and if you would like to donate to help with his care and recovery you can do so through our paypal giving fund.

Hero also has an Amazon Wish List that can be found at:…

Thank you all for your continued support and donations! We will keep everyone updated on how everything is going with Hero as we continue to learn more about him and nurture him back to health!

Our Adoption Process...

BOXERS ARE ADOPTED TO MICHIGAN RESIDENTS ONLY! Adoption fee for Boxers range from $150 - $400. A donation for owner assisted placement is $50.00. Vetting includes: up-to-date shots, spay/neuter (puppies under 5-months are adopted on a spay/neuter contract and adopter of puppy is responsible for cost of spay/neuter), NEGATIVE fecal results, NEGATIVE heartworm results, and current on heartworm prevention, as well as a COMPLETE health exam.

Note: If this boxer is an owner-assisted placement, BHR interviews and approves the adopters and forwards that information to the dog's owner. BHR does not own or foster the dog and makes no representations as to the dog's temperament or suitability for the adopter's home. It is the responsibility of the adopters to evaluate the dog to determine if he/she is the right dog for their home.
