|Without Borders Boxer Rescue - Our Canadian Partner
By founder, Chantell Yates
There may be a border between the US and Canada
but the love of Boxers knows no boundaries.
Borders Boxer Rescue helps BRLA boxers find
homes in Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
In September 2001, Boxer Rescue Canada noticed
how many Canadians wanted to adopt Boxers and
few available Boxers there were in Canada. Boxer
Rescue LA, one of the largest breed specific rescues,
always had plenty of boxers. One month later, my
husband and I loaded up a 15-passenger van with
crates and made the 22 hour journey straight to BRLA
for Boxer Rescue Canada. It was an exhilarating and
wonderful experience to see the facility and meet
many of the dedicated volunteers. We were
overwhelmed with hope and joy at all the boxers who
needed homes. We selected 10 dogs and began the
long journey home. Our Canadian families anxiously
awaited our return with their new family members on
board. All adoptions went well, including our foster
girl becoming a permanent member of our family. Her
name was Bea and she was a tiny frightened girl. It
didnít take long for her to warm up to us and our
Boxer Morgan. Bea became Cali, short for California,
and became the queen of our house. After adopting
Cali and seeing the miraculous transformation in her
from just love and patience, we were hooked .
We eventually drove another van full of
boxers from BRLA up for Boxer Rescue Canada and
many dogs arrive by air. In September 2004 we
decided that BRLA needed an official affiliate in British
Columbia so Without Borders Boxer
Rescue began. WBBR is a
rescue group for Canadian families
along with Washington, Oregon and Alaska to
adopt boxers from BRLA. Since September 2004
we have successfully placed 42 Boxers.
Our families are carefully screened and we select
dogs that match their lifestyles in advance of them
traveling to Canada. The BRLA adoption team works
closely with the WBBR team to insure the right dog is
selected for each family. We meet the new arrivals
at the airport to clear customs and then get them
ready to meet their new family. It is always
heartwarming to witness the first time families see
their new boxers who have made such a long journey
Every member of WBBR is crucial in making this
venture a huge success. Thank you Heather, Cathy,
Jeff, Kerri, Aimie and all our wonderful adoptive
families who help out and continue to spread the
We could not do what we do up here
the support of all the amazing volunteers at Boxer
Rescue LA. Thank you!

Every once in awhile, everyone needs a Lifeline.
You can become a PERSONAL LIFELINE by sponsoring
a medical procedure for one of our dogs on the
Medical Lifeline waiting list. This is where your
donation goes directly to one specific case. You will
appear as that dogs Lifeline on our website. Your
donation will have an immediate affect on that
particular boxers life.
You can also enlist your own veterinarian to become
a PROFESSIONAL LIFELINE by donating their services
to one of our Medical Lifeline dogs. Boxer Rescue LA
provides a sample letter you can use to enlist your
vet into the Professional Lifeline program. Just like
the Personal Lifeline, a Professional Lifeline is helping
BRLA one specific dog at a time.
adopted Beau a year ago and he is a
great dog. Lately he has been getting into the trash
and scattering it everywhere. Our kitchen trash has a
lid and is not disturbed. Beau will sneak into the
bathrooms and office to get the trash. He gets plenty
of exercise and does this when we are home. We
have scolded him and he shows remorse, but will do
it again in a second. Can you help us. Rose.
diving is a normal dog behavior. His
remorse, slinking away, avoiding eye contact is not
a sign of guilt. Beau is showing submissive behavior
to your anger. He doesn't understand that getting
into the trash is wrong, he only knows that you are
To stop this behaviors all together you have two
choices. #1) Keep all trash cans out of reach,
covered or behind closed doors at all times. #2) Use
an indoor barrier with a correction collar for each
trash can. See link below
