Home Counties Boxer Welfare

Here are all the dogs currently in our care and seeking new homes.  If you feel that you could offer a home to any of the dogs listed, please use the contact details

listed at the end of the write up about the dog.  

Awesome George

Awesome George

We are now looking for a special forever home for this beautiful boy, he is nearly 4 years old, a Boxer Mastiff cross and currently in Hertfordshire. George is a lovely boy who will need an experienced home that will be sympathetic to his needs giving him the time to fulfill his potential through further training. He is a bit of a nervous boy, despite his size and will need work on his socialization skills, he is friendly with most dogs and could potentially live with a female which we feel would benefit him. George does not walk well on the lead and pulls like a train, this is something that will need to be worked on, he will also require lots of walks and exercise. George will not be rehomed with children under 14 and has not been tested with cats. Could yours be that special home for this loving boy? If you feel you could offer George a new home and would like further information, please contact Eleanor Barton on 01992 421387/07947609594 or by email eleanor.barton@hcbw.org.uk

Hooch

Hooch

Is there someone who could help this lovely boy. Hooch is seven , a beautiful dark brindle boy. Sadly he has very recently been diagnosed with cancer and it is not known how aggressive it is. He has had a lump removed and the vet feels they have taken as big a margin as possible but they also feel his long-term prognosis is not great. He may have two years , he may have less. We want him to have that loving home for however long he continues to enjoy life. We are anxious to avoid further intrusive surgery but very willing to fund the costs of palliative care . Currently you would not know anything was wrong. He loves life, is affectionate and will stay close for cuddles. He is a bit of a rogue on the lead and will pull but is getting better. He did live with another dog but for the past month or more has been on his own and is loving the attention. We feel a home where he is the only dog would be best. He has not mixed with other dogs beyond his former housemate and he does pull towards them . He just wants to say hello. He has no history with cats but we suspect he would chase them. Hooch has not lived with children so we think an adult-only home would suitr him. Currently he is getting lots of walks which he enjoys and is getting better on the lead all the time. Hooch may not have a lengthy life in front of him but we are desperate that it should be a quality one. If you think you could be the person to take this boy into your heart and home please contact Lorraine Harvey on 07760178529. Currently Hooch is in Yorkshire but we can arrange travel south if that is where a home is found. Hooch is neutered , vac'd and chipped. Home checks will apply.

Megan

Megan

UPDATE: Due to a very happy change in circumstances - Both Megan and Millie are able to return to their original family which is great news for all concerned! <3

Meg (Megan) is a beautiful old Red girl, 11 years young, who came into us with her pal Millie who is 6 years old. We feel both girls would be perfectly ok in their own separate homes as they have different energy levels and needs.

Meg is still very energetic and can outrun her younger Boxer pal and despite her age is still boisterous. She can be a little unsure when first meeting meeting people but will soon come over for a cuddle and settle down. She is a lovely friendly old girl and is in good overall health, a few lumps and bumps here and there but nothing that is causing her any issues at present.

She has lived with another Boxer but generally dislikes other dogs and can be reactive when out on walks. She can pull on the lead and wants to get ahead to explore. She has lived with cats but has never lived with young children and can be too boisterous around them.

Meg is looking for a warm, cozy home where she can snuggle up on the sofa for cuddles in peace and quiet. She is still active so will need to have exercise and a good run around and will need a handler who is able to cope with pulling and her reaction to other dogs when out walking.

Meg will have up to date vaccinations and is micro-chipped.

If you could offer our beautiful oldie Meg a warm cozy sofa and a home with lots of love and cuddles please contact Donna for more information and to register your interest: donna.russell@hcbw.org.uk or T. 01908 560 230. Meg is currently in Buckinghamshire.

Millie

Millie

UPDATE: Due to a very happy change in circumstances - Both Megan and Millie are able to return to their original family which is great news for all concerned! <3

Millie, Brindle, 6 years, came to us with her old pal Megan, however, we feel both girls would be perfectly ok in their own separate homes as they have different energy levels and needs.

Millie is a beautiful big girl, a little clumsy and boisterous at times and a little unsure when she first meets people but soon warms up and rushes over to give you big wet Boxer kisses. She is friendly, affectionate and energetic and will need a home that can handle a strong, bouncy, girl with lots of energy to burn!

Millie has come to us through no fault of her own and has been very well looked after and loved since she was a puppy, however, a very sad change in circumstances has led her to us. We would love to find Millie the perfect home for her to carry on bouncing around for the rest of her years.

Millie has lived with cats and her older female Boxer pal but has reacted to dogs outside walking when she generally wants to get to them to say hi. She would benefit from some training and dog socialisation. She has not grown up around children and as she is clumsy and boisterous around young kids she has been kept away from them so we would recommend no small children in the home.

She will need to be neutered once settled in her new home (HCBW cover part of the costs for this). She will come with up to date vaccinations and is micro-chipped.

If you feel you could offer Millie the perfect home please contact Donna for more information and to register your interest: donna.russell@hcbw.org.uk or T. 01908 560 230. Millie is currently in Buckinghamshire

Missy

Missy

Missy is a lovely 6 year old girl who is looking for a quiet home where she can relax and enjoy life. She is a friendly, sensitive soul but she does not get on with other dogs and she is a strong girl on her lead when she decides to pull. She is currently living in a busy household, but is finding the comings and goings too much to cope with, so we think she would prefer a home with no small children. Her current family have enlisted the services of a behaviourist, and this would continue wherever she goes, to help her settle into a new home.
She is spayed, and is fully vaccinated.
If you think you could give Missy a loving home, please get in touch with Karen Kerby on 01869 321010 or email karen.kerby@hcbw.org.uk
