Here you will find all the dogs currently looking for their forever homes, if you want to Adopt a Boxer, please read our Adoption notes and contact us using the details on the post about the dog
IMPORTANT INFORMATION, please read:
Working in dog rescue can be about finding a home for a poor, abandoned dog, who needs someone to show them that they are loved; someone to give them shelter, water, food and cuddles. It’s amazing when you see a dog come through the trauma of being neglected, to becoming the happy loving dog they are all meant to be. And, let’s face it, we all love to watch Paul O’Grady work his magic for the cameras on TV supporting the work that the larger rescue centres do.
Unfortunately, this is only a small proportion of the work that breed rescues perform. Many of the dogs we are asked to help come to us because the owner is looking for help, or to rehome a dog whose needs are not being met in their current situation. The dog is too boisterous, or pulls too much, or is scaring the family, or doesn’t get on with other dogs, or is scared of visitors…. the list goes on.
While these dogs are struggling in their current environment, we are always prepared to give them a second chance by placing them with someone who, we hope, will put in the time and effort to show them that life can be fun and doesn’t have to be so fraught with anxiety.
Please think before you apply to adopt a Boxer. We rarely have dogs who will slot into a new family without you noticing. Boxers are, by their nature, bouncy, inquisitive and boisterous. They thrive on being with people. They want to be with you, whatever you are doing. But they also need to understand that they don’t have to be constantly demanding your attention, or protecting you from danger. This is where you have to put in the work at the beginning to reap the rewards later. Rescuing a Boxer is not an easy pastime! It might not take long for a rescue dog to adapt to its new home and settle in, as if they’ve been there forever. On the other hand, it might take a longer time. There is no guarantee either way, and there is also no way of predicting how quickly this will happen. If you are not able to spare the time to help the dog adjust, then please think carefully before you offer to take a rescue Boxer.
Any dog coming into HCBW is firstly matched against homes on our waiting list. If there is no match, we advertise here and on our facebook page.
