Bobbi has been released from the hospital and has just arrived at his new foster home!


This evening, they were able to remove Bobbi's chest tube. He will remain in the ICU overnight and if all goes well, he will move to the soft tissue recovery floor in the morning. They were able to remove all the bone fragments and repair the gums and lip. He did lose all his incisors on the top and bottom, but they were able to salvage his canines.  Bobbi is a staff favorite and is is thriving on all the hugs and kisses he gets from them. One of the nurses even brought him his first toy. He doesn't seem to know what to do with it and just lays beside it. With any luck, it won't be long before he is in a loving home who can teach him what the good life is all about...including toys!! Because of Bobbi's extended stay in the ICU, his bills are likely to exceed the initial $4000 estimate. If you can spare even $5 I know Bobbi would greatly appreciate it!

11/12/12 -

Bobbi is a boxer boy estimated to be around 3-5 years of age.  He was found as a stray and brought to the city shelter.  Bobbi is in very bad shape and was rushed to the University of Penn emergency center. 

Bobbi is in terrible pain and he can barely walk.  He has wounds all over his body and legs.  Bobbi has a painful abdomen, is lethargic, and bleeding from the nose and mouth.  Once we lifted up his upper lip, we noticed that his jaw has a giant hole in it - almost as if he had been hit with something head on.

We are waiting for Bobbi to stabilize and then he will get xrays, an ultrasound, dental consultant, and any other care that is needed . Out best guess so far is that he suffered some kind of trauma.  Please keep him in your thoughts that he will pull through this.  He is the sweetest boy.  Even with the amount of pain he is in, Bobbi let us handle him and even gave a little nub wag.  We will do whatever is needed to help him pull through, but we desperately need your help.  Any donations are greatly appreciated. 

We will post updates as we find out more about Bobbi!

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read our Adoption Procedure, by clicking on the link at the top of this page, then fill out an online 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.  

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.  

And yes, we realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on, may be adopted before you're approved.   Should your first choices all ready found their forever home, we want you to advise us as to other dogs you are interested in at .  Or let us suggest a few that we feel will match your home.  That is what we are good at.   And be happy for the ones that 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.

We hope you feel that the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
