Thank you for considering becoming a hero to a rescue by adopting a rescued boxer. The following requirements must be met before an adoption can take place:
1. We require all homes with children 8 years and younger to have a fence or have experience with dogs in the home already.
Please Note: This is a decision based on years of experience and we do not wish to offend anyone. Boxers are typically high energy, strong minded dogs that require a lot of exercise and socialization. From a practical stand point we believe it is difficult for a parent to walk a dog (in the absence of a fence yard) while having very young children who cannot be left alone while they are doing so, and even harder to bring the kids along. Many boxers that are surrendered to rescue are surrendered by homes that have very young children, no fence and because of the lack of ability to exercise, the dog has become too much to handle or destructive.
