My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Hank, 8.5yo MNBR alum, is a happy, athletic, fun pup. He can live with dogs: females and submissive males. He lives with cats, but he's convinced they're going to eat his food or hijack his things so cats are a no no. He's even trained his little, cockapoo brother to protect his food bowl from the cats. No joke! He absolutely loves children!! He does require a fenced yard, exercise, and of course, snuggles. He'd really benefit from someone explaining he doesn't need to fill the shoes of Gladys Kravitz because we all have Ring doorbells to do that for us now. Maybe you could replace his nosy urge to gossip at the top of his lungs with the art of meditation or get him hooked on ASMR videos. Just suggestions. He loves lake life and swimming for his sticks. He'll even play fetch by himself dropping in a stick off the dock and running to fetch it! I can't guarantee he'd stay in a boat if he saw a stick floating by....or a log.

Do you have room in your home for four paws, a wagging tail, and kisses? Is a piece of your heart yearning for someone willing to watch every James Bond film back to back? Are you just jonsing for that perfect friend that will always be up for grilling meat on the back deck and playing a good old game of catch while listening to The J. Geils Band? If so, HANK IS YOUR GUY!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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 Neuter/Spay Rabies DHLPP Heartworm Test and preventative meds Fecal Test and any necessary worming Bordetella 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.

More about this rescue

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.
