Story
Chance is an amazing pup. It’s with a heavy heart that I need to find a new loving home for him. I was recently divorced and because of my hectic work schedule he’s forced to be by himself for far longer than I like. I feel like he’s not living his best life here. He is absolutely fantastic with people and especially children. I have a 5 and 7 year old, he’s been around them for the last 3 years since he was a puppy. He’s a good guard dog and will let you know when people are close that he doesn’t know. However… he’s harmless and just wants to love everyone he sees. Chance has been trained not to jump on people which is a common problem with boxers. He’s very well behaved. Loves chewing his toys and the occasional toy of his brothers. He will gladly bring you random shoes when you come home. He prefers to be indoors but does need room to run a few times per day. He’s trained for invisible fence and needs a fenced yard of some sort.

Or, how about these Boxers in cities near Rockford, Illinois

These Boxers are available for adoption close to Rockford, Illinois.

Story
Name: SusieBreed: Boxedr/Shepherd MixDOB: 12/30/2023Good with kids: YESGood with dogs: YESGood with cats: YESFoster location: Belvidere, ILAdoption fee: $400Fun Bio: We are excited to introduce Susie, who is part puppy, part slightly charred meatball! Sweet Susie has LOADS of energy and gets along well with everyone she meets! She loves playing catch and is currently working on her manners. She sometimes gets a serious case of the zoomies and can play a little rough, but she's crate trained, great with other dogs and kids, and loads of fun! Apply to meet our little meatball today! If interested in a pet from us please fill out the adoption application that is located on our website.  We process applications in the order in which they are received.  We will likely not respond to interest emails regarding puppies and/or kittens, we get so many "interest" emails that we simply do not have the time to respond to each one.  We always recommend crate training, positive reinforcement training, exercise, playtime, and a regular schedule for potty breaks when bringing a new dog/puppy into your home. Adjustment takes time for both you and your new family member, so remember to be patient and enjoy this new and exciting time!Included in the adoption fee are age appropriate vaccinations, heartworm testing, deworming, spay or neuter surgery, and microchip. ##1981410##

Story
Laika is a 2 year old Mastiff x Lab. She was adopted here as a puppy but returned because she did not get along with other dogs in the home. She has now been here since October 2023. 🥺 Laika is the first dog that is part of our new program, "Ark Stowaways." See below to learn about our new Stowaway Program.Laika is a very social and sweet dog but she has some quirks. She loves long walks, giving hugs, learning new tricks for treats, and playing with squeaky toys. She has no bite history but we feel she would do best in a home with no other dogs or cats and no children under 10 years old. She hopes that someone has room in their heart to at least come meet her. Please complete an application at noahsarkanimals.org if you wish to meet this beautiful girl. ðŸ\x90¾An Ark Stowaway is a dog that has been aboard the Ark longer than usual. These dogs have reduced adoption fees in hopes of helping them find their forever home. The reduced fee is decided on a case-by-case basis. Laika's current reduced fee is $175. Laika is also eligible for foster. Please email foster@noahsarkanimals.org for more information.To apply to adopt a dog from Noah's Ark in Rockford, IL, please visit noahsarkanimals.org.
