Super cute and sweet puppy
5/29/12 - Rico is a 5 1/2 month old Boxer/Shar-Pei mix puppy who was returned to AABR because his family did not have the time to care for him. He is doing really well in his new foster home. Rico is being fostered with a male and female boxer. He enjoys going on walks and playing with his foster brother and sister. Rico will gladly come and snuggle with you when invited. He can be a real mush when he wants. Rico still has a great deal of learning to do, but he picks things up quickly. He is crate trained and almost completely housebroken. Rico needs a committed home that will continue his training and can accommodate the needs of a puppy. Please apply to adopt Rico today.
5/16/12 - Rico is being returned to rescue and is in urgent need of a foster or forever home. He would do best in a home with older children and with somebody home enough to accommodate the needs of a puppy this age. Apply today to help Rico!
2/23/12 - Rico, Taz, and Shea were surrendered by their owners to a high kill gas shelter in NC. The pups were out of time and the shelter asked AABR for help.
Rico and his siblings are boxer mixes. Their mom was a purebred boxer and their dad was a purebred Shar-pei. They are super cute and very sweet. If you are looking for a boxer mix, please consider one of these adorable pups.
Keep in mind that puppies require a lot of work! If you are interested in a puppy this age, please make sure you are committed and ready before you apply! To be considered for a puppy, you must have the time and energy to work on socialization and housebreaking. Somebody should be home enough to accommodate the needs of a puppy.
If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read our Adoption Procedure.Then fill out an adoption application
Boxers and Applicants are not matched on a first come, first served basis. Not all applications are approved. On average, it takes between a week and 1 month to adopt a rescue Boxer to an approved applicant, depending on your personal circumstances and flexibility.
We hope you feel that the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
Matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and theirs, increases the application review time and adoption time. AABR's policy is to bring all dogs up to date on vaccinations and any needed veterinary care, including spay or neuter if not already altered, before adoption. Please note that all descriptions of a particular dog's interactions with cats, other dogs, and people of all ages are based on reported behavior only and are not representations that those behaviors will be the case in all situations.
We realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on may be adopted before you're approved. Should your first choices already have found their forever homes, please let us know which other dogs you are interested in by emailing us at Adoptions@AdoptABoxerRescue.com. Or let us suggest a few that we feel will match your home. That is what we are good at. Be happy for the ones who have been placed... and know that there are way too many fantastic dogs waiting in their place.
Our non-profit organization is wholly comprised of hard working volunteers whose only reward is seeing our wonderful Boxers placed in loving, permanent homes and given another chance for a happy life. Our process may seem slow, but if you are patient, we will try to provide you with a devoted, loving companion - a Boxer.
Adoptions Fee: The adoption fee is $375 unless otherwise noted specifically.
