About America

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comHello! My name is America, my foster family calls me Ami (like Amy) for short. I was rescued on the 4th of July, urgently in need of medical attention. I was taken to the emergency doggie hospital so they could get me fixed up right away. See, I had a very large wound on my neck/shoulder area. It was infected and needed surgical cleaning, antibiotics, and lots of daily wound care. I was also very skinny and needed some groceries (I was starving). I was very scared for a while, everything was new and I didn't know if it would hurt me. Slowly I started to trust the people who were helping me and to become more brave!It took almost a year, but my wound is completely healed (I do have a pretty gnarly scar, but I'm told people dig scars because they tell a story of a great adventure. My great adventure brought me to this wonderful new life, so I'm okay with it). My physical wounds were only half my battle though. I was not socialized/treated well in my past life. I take medicine every day that helps me not be so anxious. My foster mom says it doesn't cost much and it helps me feel happy so I don't mind taking it at all. This is what I would picture my forever home to be:* I need a quiet backyard of my own. The outdoors are pretty scary to me. I can relax when I don’t have a lot of distractions/noises/strange moving things. Sometimes walks are even ok if I have my furry foster brudder with me. Apartments are too noisy.* I would like to have a new fur brother to help me be brave. I may be scared of him at first, but once I know he won't hurt me, I will need him to help show me new things are ok.* It takes me some time to get comfortable with new humans, so I would really prefer a quiet home that my human(s) can let me sit on their lap(s) without a lot of new people always coming over. I love to snuggle!* I would love to have toys! I love to play with my toys! I love to squeak them, chase them, fetch them and chew on them.* Lastly….I need someone that will give me time to trust and love them. As new situations tend to scare me, I ask that you have patience with me. I am REALLY worth it. I will forever pay you in kisses.   If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out our adoption application to begin the process.

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comBosley is approximately 2 to 3 years old.  Bosley has a big head, big feet, and a long tongue.  He has soft fawn fur, a cute black face and a very pronounced underbite.  He is a very muscular dog, and just about at the right weight now.Bosley is very affectionate and loves to have his ears massaged. He also likes to curl up around our legs and get petted. Bosley has a medium play drive and likes having his toys tossed around in the morning and chasing them if not thrown too far. Bosley does not steal or chew household items or destroy the bedding in his crate. He walks well on a leash only pulling a little, and is non-reactive to people, other dogs, vehicles, or noises during the day. At night he is more alert and will bark some if he sees people or other dogs. He will chase rabbits but ignores the squirrels in our yard.  We have not seen any cats and do not know how he will react to them. Bosley is very light on his feet and has a nice spring in his step and looks good running around the yard.  Bosley is also great riding in the car, and we have taken him for many car rides.Bosley is house trained and will go out through the pet door on his own. He is learning basic commands.  He is fairly well crate trained now; we feed him in the crate, so he is getting used to it. Once in, he settles down quickly with a minimum of barking. Bosley needs to be bribed with a cookie to get into the crate.  Bosley does not jump on furniture but he does like to put his front paws on us when we are sitting so that he can get petted. Bosley has been good with us and is friendly with people, both adults and children who he meets in the neighborhood.  We have introduced Bosley to our dog Bullet and they are great friends.  They truly get along great.  Bosley is pretty chill and does not react when the other dogs are in the same room, when he is in his crate.Until we learn more about his temperament, we think that he’d be best in a home with no children.  He might do well with another dog, but it would depend on the dog.  He is learning our house rules and wants to fit in. We have 3 other dogs so a 4th is out of the question. Hopefully you can give Bosley a great forever home.         Bosley just completed some medical treatments but will be ready for adoption soon.   If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out our adoption application to begin the process.

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comHi there, my name is Capellini!  I am around 1 year old, and I am a very small little girl.  I may even be considered a pocket boxer.  I weigh about 40 lbs. I recently came into LBR’s care along with my 4 babies.  I had them sometime in March. I am a very sweet loving girl.  I get along with the other 3 dogs in my foster home, two are female, and one is male.  I am potty trained and ask to go outside when I need to.  I am crate trained, as long as you promise me a treat for me to go in.  I am still learning my manners.  I have not quit gotten down a few commands my foster mom is trying very hard to teach me.  But I am listening and hopefully will get them down by the time I am ready for my forever home.  I am very afraid of men & loud noises right now.  I have gone up to my foster dad, but he has not gotten any kisses from me.  I seem to be very timid of men, & my mom dropped the broom the other day, and I took off running… but mom and dad are working on that every day.  I ride great in the car and love to go for car rides.  My foster mom is taking me everywhere so I can get used to the good life from here on out!! I still need to be spayed and undergo Heartworm Treatment.  There is a possibility I may be ready & healthy enough to go sometime in June.   I will update as I progress.

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comHi, my name is Cooney.  My foster family named me after the fighter Gerry Cooney, and I have the scars to prove it!  Since my last dog brother like to hurt me sometimes, I might be best in an only dog home.  I am a lover, not a fighter and in time, I became friends with my new foster brother and sister.  (I’m the handsome devil on the left.)I'm learning to trust my foster mom and dad, and I'm finding that meeting new people can be fun too.  I am protective of my home and yard.  I am working on gaining confidence and learning to play.  My foster mom was so happy when she saw me grab a toy and throw it in the air.  It's the first time she's seen me do that.  I now know that when my foster mom gets close to my face, it's to give me love, not to hurt me.  I didn't used to give kisses much, but now that I'm trusting more, I like giving kisses.  I can get scared when there are loud noises or yelling, so older children would probably be best for me.  I know sit, stay, come, shake, down, and leave it (most of the time).  I really like when my mom calls me a GOOD BOY!  I am not quite ready for adoption at this time, but my foster mom will consider letting me meet some special families soon.     If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out our adoption application to begin the process.

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comDaiquiri is a beautiful, spunky little lady. She is the best snuggler, gentle kisser, and just an all around perfect pocket sized boxer girl. She loves to snuggle with humans and fur friends. She enjoys being outside and is dog door trained. She needs a little monitoring by the fence as she is curious of what is on the other side. She hasn't attempted to jump, but she does hop and is difficult to verbally redirect away from fence. Mommy normally has to come closer to her and say 'c'mon lets go inside pretty girl and let the puppies go on walks with their mommies'. After mom's presence, a little playful 'c'mon' gets her to focus on being with mommy and her foster fur siblings. Though her face is powdered, she has some spunk left in her. She is very active in the mornings and will play chase with the pups as well as pick up some toys and swing them around. She tires easily though and will be ready for a mid morning nap within 20-25 minutes. She's the perfect matured boxer girl. She does think that she is a human and belongs where humans are - couches, ottomans, beds, etc. She also prefers soft blankets and if you hold it up, she will walk under and snuggle up. If you have a pillow nearby, she will snuggle on the pillow with you. I can't say enough about this sweet little love!   If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out our adoption application to begin the process.

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comHi!  Dexter here and I want to tell you a little about myself.  Recently I found myself living in a shelter instead of my home so I thought it would be fun to go on an adventure.  I'm not telling how I escaped but I left that place and was gone for five days!  During that time I got skinny and also got some cuts and scratches but those are healing now.  I'm in a nice home now with two Boxers to play with and a big back yard that I love!  My family here says I'm a sweet, loving boy and they can't imagine anyone giving me up.  They like my manners because I know 'sit', 'shake' and most of all, I'm housetrained and can use a doggie door!  I'm good at going for a walk on a leash and riding in a car.  The staff at the vet office  said I was super sweet and 'chill' when they examined me.   I'll be going back to the vet soon to be neutered (whatever that is) and then a little later the vet will help me get rid of some nasty worms that have taken up residence in my heart.  I love to sit in my people's laps; right now I'm a 67 lb. lap dog but I need to gain a little more weight.  I also go wherever my favorite person in the house goes; he says I'm his shadow.  As soon as I finish with everything the vet needs to do with me, I'll be ready for my new home.  Do you think your home is the right one for me?   If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out our adoption application to begin the process.

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comHi Everyone!I am just over the moon my Foster Mom and Dad sprung me from that scary shelter.  I've been nothing but sunshine and candy kisses from the first day.  They said I was such a good boy they took my crate down and stuffed it back in the garage lickety-split - which was more than fine by me cuz I hated it.  But I don't get into stuff, or pee in the house or chew on things.  Since I got my first bath, I have just strutted around smelling like blueberries and giving boxer-wiggles and leans every chance I get!  I have a fur-sister that's kinda weird and likes to tease me.  Mom says she's a 'cat' but *I* think she's funny, and a little bit stuck-up.  I have a fur-brother, too but he's kinda boring.  He hardly ever wants to play with me, but we get along fine except when he's being jealous.  Some dogs have been mean to me before, and I'm a really, really little guy - so it takes time for me to warm up to new dog-friends.  I *love* kids and they love me.  There are two little girls next door and I get to play with them sometimes.  They say I am the softest boxer they've ever touched.  *beams with pride*    If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out our adoption application to begin the process.

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comHi. My name is Kapono. My name means righteous in Hawaiian. My foster Momma felt this fit me because I am filled with pure joy and love despite the life I lived prior to LBR saving me. My foster Momma calls me her tiny dancer as I will dance in place from excitement when I see her. She also tells me I should have been named Besos (kiss) as I LOVE to give kisses! I believe the world can be made peaceful with boxer kisses, so I am working on this one human at a time.I love everything in this world but birds. I just do not trust anything that can defy gravity and travel in the sky instead of the ground. Cats and squirrels also cannot be trusted. Anything that can climb a tree is once again defying gravity, which is just not natural.  Some of my favorite things to do are riding in the car, going for walks, getting my belly rubbed, and giving kisses!  I like other dogs but would prefer they just be friends that do not live with me. I only have time to give and receive love from my humans. My ideal life would be to go for daily walks then lay on the couch snuggled next to my human.I am ready for my furever home. Please contact your adoption counselor to talk to my foster Momma about me. I will be more than happy to go on one of my favorite things to do, car rides, and greet you with another o w of my favorite things to do, give kisses and let you run my soft belly. Sending lots of Boxer kisses!Kapono     If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out our adoption application to begin the process.

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comHi, my name is Malibu, and thank you for stopping by my page.  My foster parents think I'm a 5-7 year-old (a lady never tells her true age) brindle female boxer.  I have natural ears and a docked tail.  My previous owners took me to this scary, noisy place (I think it's called a shelter) and left me there.  I was so confused and scared.  I don't know why they took me there and left me, but they did.  The nice people at Legacy came and got me and have given me great place to get back on my feet.I am a very lovable and easy going dog.  I'm not too sure about their dogs yet, but I enjoy their cats (I notice them, but don't have any interest in them).  I have a lot of energy, but it when it fades, I crash hard and just want to snuggle with my humans.  I am house trained and go in my crate pretty easily, but I tend to whine and bark if I hear someone or their dogs.  Eventually, I quiet down.  I enjoy my food and treats, but don't care much for toys or chews.  My teeth are pretty worn down so it's hard to chew on rawhides.I hope one day to have a family of my very own again.  Will you give this sweet older lady a chance at having her happily ever after again?   If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out our adoption application to begin the process.

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comHi Friends!  I thought I should pop in and give you an update.  I'm doing great here.  My Foster Mom says I'm quirky, but in a good way.  I've gotten along with all of the other dogs that have come and gone at our house, but I do get a little jealous sometimes and give ugly faces or a little growl.  No fighting tho because I'm just too much of a love-bug for that.  I'm a bit of a couch potato, although I do get excited and like to box and wiggle when my peeps do the 'grumble-bee' dance. Then I just can't help myself and I have to shake my booty and prance.  I am suuuuper easy on a leash.  I like to get out in the fresh air and sunshine, but I don't like to walk far.  We are still working on getting my skin all clear.  It's a process, but the new fur is coming in soft and bright white.  I never, ever have an accident in the house.  I've never been crated because, honestly - I'm a perfect boy that never gets into stuff.  I have my own kitty-sissie named Katie and I love her to pieces.  I can't get her to sleep with me, tho.  She thinks I snore.  hmpfh!   If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out our adoption application to begin the process.

Legacy Boxer Rescuewww.savetheboxers.com | info@savetheboxers.comHello, my name is Wizard. I am a big, sweet boy!My most favorite things are back rubs, scratches by my tail,  car rides, and lots of attention. Guaranteed, I will give you lots of love in return!I am so easy going, I walk well on a leash, and house trained and crate trained.  My foster mom says I am really well behaved! I love other dogs but kitties are way too interesting. They tell me it is best if I stay away from kitties. You will get a look like 'what did you do that for?' if you take my toys or food. But that's okay, I will not fuss at you!   Now, if you can find a treat for me, I will sit for you and wait patiently. I promise I will take it gently.So, do you think I sound just about perfect? Well, we all have a few things we like to do that are questionable! Let's see, I love to sneak up on your bed or even take your chair when you're not looking! I know better, you just need to remind me of my manners. I know how to open gates, so you must remember to keep them locked. I consider that your responsibility, but if you forget I just sit there and wait for you to come get me. I am real good at jumping. I love to jump baby gates so I can be with you. I am a big boy, so jumping 4 ft. fences are a breeze. But I cannot seem to manage those 6 ft. fences. I just do not know why! Anyway, my few flaws are just about wanting to be with you. Well maybe not all of them, the bed stealing is for my comfort! Oh, I almost forgot, I will gently put my paw on your leg and remind you that a few Boxer kisses put a smile on your face and make for a special day! ☺So, if you are looking for an easy going boy that is pretty calm, good with dogs and children, loves to play and keep you company, please let us know. I would love to come for a visit!   If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out our adoption application to begin the process.
