Lily is a super sweet young girl who has captured the hearts of everyone that she has met since coming into rescue. She is feeling better and starting to fill out nicely. She knows some of her basic commands like sit/come and we are working to improve her stay and down. She has a great appetite and takes treats, food, and toys from your hand without any problems. Lily is potty trained and walks well on a leash. She lives with a 2yr old male boxer and they do well together playing or just catching a nap together on the couch. Our 2 yr old granddaughter is always greeted with lots of kisses and excitement and Lily understands no jumping on the kids. Lilly would be the perfect addition to any home.

Meet Lily! Lily was surrendered by her owners to the local shelter because she was vomiting and pooping blood, and they couldn't not afford vet care.  AABR swooped in and rushed her to the emergency vet. She was in quite a bit of pain and was dehydrated. Lily was a champ waiting for the vets to see her, even in her condition. She was comforted by soft talking and continual strokes on the head.

Two days later, Lily remains at the vet and we are no closer to figuring out what is wrong with her. Her owners left us no information at all, so we are starting from scratch in trying to figure out what is going on.  We are hoping to have answers soon. Please send good thoughts to Lily -she is a sweet girl who deserves so much more than what she has been given so far.

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.
