Did Nelly find a home?
I really am intrested in adopting a boxer. I liked being able to see them and find out about their personalities, age, and ablities. Keep up the good work!! Keep me updated on the adoption of the boxers. I hope to get one soon I just can't make up my mind.
I have a 4 year old Boxer that needs a good home! I had a new house built and my wife will not let the dog in the house. We are currently keeping him in the garage, which is heated.He is not able to be sociolized with other people enough.If you can help me, please e-mail. thank you!
dogs are great!!!!!!!
I have a 9 month old female boxer named Sidney. She is a very sweet dog and I love her to death, but she has become very hard to control. Three months ago we moved into an apartment with a little fenced in porch. I knew she was going to have a problem adjusting to this new life style since she was going to have to be locked up during the day while I at work. Before, we lived with my parents that had a large fenced in backyard that she was able to run in all day long. Since we have moved I have brought her to the house so she could have her time to be free and run, but recently she has figured out how to jump the fence. Once she is out she does not want to come back and it turns into a chase until I give up and she comes back on her own. Since she has learned to get out and has had more freedom, she has become very hard to control. During the evenings and in the morning we go on walks around the complex so she can get outside. At night she does not let me sit down so we are outside for quite a while. This morning she figured out how to jump over the 6ft fence around the porch. I just knew she would be gone, but the chase was on for about 10 minutes. She eventually slowed down enough to where I could catch her, but I just don't know what to do now that she can get over that fence. She is not happy being locked up and I don't blame her. I feel guilty enough having to do that to her, but she is now starting to walk around the apartment whining because she wants to be even if we just came in from being outside for 30 minutes or an hour. I know it is not enough but what can I do. Please, if you can give me some suggestions I would greatly appreciate your help.
My 4 years old daughter and I enjoyed looking at your website, where could I mail a contribution ?
CALL AFTER 6:00 PM
We love our Boxer dog.
Bravo! A great website! I am so happy to see you online. Congratulations on your new facilities. Great job, Ursula.
My Boxer, Katie (formerly Tara), was adopted from you in June 1996. She was four or five years old then. Katie is my fourth Boxer - and is surely the greatest one.
My life has been immeasureably enriched (and Katie's life isn't too bad either). My family is raised; it's just Katie and me; I have spoiled her rotten, rotten, rotten. And loved every minute of it. My sons tell her that she has died and gone to doggie heaven.
Katie finds a way to make me laugh every day. I have arthritis and it is Katie's job to see that I get on my feet every morniing no matter what. Boy, does she take her job seriously.
The first few weeks with Katie were really difficult. She was so very distressed. But time, lots of kindness, a firm hand and obedience training have brought out all the best in Katie. And Katie has certainly brought out the best in me. She is so tuned in to me, minds really well and is just pure joy. We have fun every day!
Thanks for listening. Could I get on the mailing list for your newsletter? I would like to pledge a small amount each month to help with the wonderful job you are doing.
Boxer Rescue, I've been researching the Boxer for a time now and I had just heard about this site through a friend. I was very touched by some of the stories and information that you had about the Boxer. I found this site extremely informative and it has only added fuel to the fire, for my desire to adopt a Boxer. Thank You for caring so much about the Boxer and the people that love them.
We are very happy that you can reach BOXER LOVERS with this incredible website. We adopted two sweet 'dogters' from Ursula, Rica and Frances. They are both over the Rainbow Bridge and we miss them so much and cry every day.
However, we know that when we're ready, Ursula will find the perfect match once again. All the boxer children are so precious, and we get excited when we logon and see another adoption. We thought about 'Allie' all day and logged on and are very happy that she has found her new home.
Next time we pass through Southern CA, in the next few weeks, we can't wait to spend time at the new kennel and hug and kiss all the bestest boxer boys and girls. We love them so much!
Boxers are more human than canine. Our lives have been extremely enriched since we lived with boxers.
We are placing an order for our boxer fashions immediately!
Look for us on the roads with our BXRLVRS (CA) license plates on our beige motorhome!
Hi Ursula- This is the happy owners of #1619 (aka: Cain) We named him Calvin. He was adopted from you in August of 1997.Everything is working out great. We have since added two more boxers!! Kelly is from the Hawthorne Animal Shelter(feb '98)and Riley is a street rescue.We have had Riley just about 5 weeks now, and he fits right in, they are all in love. He will be getting neutered Nov 25th! How about that- two males and a female,all getting along nicely! (think we'll have any problems down the road??)We go out to a big field (enclosed) just about every night, and they just run & run...it's really something to see! We hope all your Boxers find homes as loving as our three found!! Keep in touch!
Love the dogs, I plan on getting one soon.
THE PICTURES ON YOUR WEB SITE ARE PRIMO!
CAN I BORROW YOUR DIGITAL CAMERA FOR MY WEB SITE?
LETS SEE WHAT DEVELOPS (JOKE) THANK YOU
First of all, I would like to say how great it is that you have set up a Boxer Rescue. It was so fun to be able to browse through all the different areas and read the stories and see the pictures. Second, I must tell you that I have fallen for "Gingerette". She has stolen my heart and I would truly like to adopt her. I will be in the L.A. area during the Thanksgiving weekend. I would like to be able to see her. We are on Boxer #2. His name is Boomer and he's almost 2 now. He is the love of my life. Spoiled rotten - he thinks he is the King! I can not tell you how much this dog means to me. Our first Boxer, Buster, was 8 1/2 years old when he went to Doggie Heaven. He had tumorous cancer. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. I would truly love to have another little Boxer - a female. That way she would get along with my "Boomer". "Gingerette" would be the one for me. Please contact me. "Boxers" are truly man's best friend. They are so full of life. True companions.
Enjoyed visiting your site
I am interested in adoption. I have owned Boxers in the past and I think that is better to adopt and save a great breed than to go to a breeder.
I think what you're doing is absolutely wonderful. I have owned 4 boxers. 2 of them at this time. My dogs are both males, one 12 and one 5. The old one was a give away, and the best temperment of any dog, any breed, I have ever owned. The younger one was supposed to just be a foster home, when the Bay area Boxer rescue was too full. We fell in love with him, and that was 4 years ago. My house may be small but full of love. My boys are pretty much the center of our lives. I know what your thinking, get a life, but I do have one. And we wouldn't trade it for anything. Boxer Rescue dogs seem to sense what you did for them. I recommend rescue groups to everyone I can.
Great web page! I love seeing the pictures of adoptable boxers and I wish them all good homes for the holidays!
Site looks great. It was good to see you all on Sunday.
I just want to say thanks for finding Angel a home. Nothing could be worse than what she had to go through. I sincerely hope that you tied her previous owners to the same tree and used them for target practice. I, personally, would have used a shotgun instead of the BB gun. I know that you can't and didn't do that, but that doesn't mean that it shouldn't be done. Anyway, enough venting, I noticed that some of your captions say couch potato. My boxer, Dollie, is also one. I read in some book where boxers were more likely to kick you off the couch than to get off themselves. Dollie does exactly that. You crowd her, she kicks. It is one of the funniest things I've seen. I have to go so, good luck finding homes for the others.
Scott PS- Why can't you place dogs out of state?
I rescued a boxer from your organization last year and have been so so happy with my boy (Joe)! He and my other dog, Sami, have just fallen in love with eachother. They both bring a tremendous amount of joy into my life. Thank you for that gift! It would be great if we could submit pictures of our rescued boxers to this sight for posting. Maybe you can incorporate that in the future. Thanks for all your hard work! jen
Hi there! We had the pleasure of adopting a 7 month old male from you back in May of this year. His name at the time was Jack (was brought in with his sister, Jill). His new name is "Fruvous" ....don't ask. Anyway, he's since doubled his weight (59 lbs), gotten rid of the kennel cough, and is much less timid. He truly was a blessing to us as 3 months prior our 11 month old brindle died of a rare disease. That was a VERY hard time for us, but then along came our little Fruvous and changed all that. My wife grew up with boxers and I always had cats, but I'm happy to say that I've since turned into a BoxerFreak! God Bless you for all that you do everyday for these wonderful creatures. Thanks again!
Great page!!! Great pics!!!
We adopted our Boxer, Socks, from you 2 years ago. She's doing great.
Happy you have a web site now and it looks good! Rusty Mark (#2060) is a joy and has definitely settled in. Just received your newsletter today and will finish reading it now, had to check out your web site first,
Love your Web site. There is nothing like a boxer. I have a female brindle that came to us because the people didn't want her. They kept her in a small run behind their garage. They fed her well but did not give her the love or attention that she needed. She is large for a female and just loves to be loved. If my husband would let me I adopt another one, as my female needs a companion. When my male boxer died two years ago, my female has missed not having another dog to be with. Keep up the good work.
Ursula: Congratulations on your new facility. Angel is doing well and we love each other very much. We've had obedience training and she'll be taking agility lessons next year. She keeps active! I have a dog igloo to donate. Would like to bring Angel to visit. Is that okay to bring her? I will call to make an appointment. Barbara and Angel
I am a fellow lover of Boxers! I too am an honored owner of a beautiful male brindle. I can't say enough about the breed - he is most certainly an important member of our family. I think what you are doing is GREAT! I only wish they had such an organization here. I have volunteered at our local S.P.C.A. hoping to come across a boxer to adopt but no such luck. Just the thought of any type of cruelty done to an animal - especially the one closest to my heart (boxers) - just kills me. Keep up the good work!!!!!
I was given your name by a friend who adopted his boxer from you. I had a hard time finding you, so I decided to look for oyu on the web - lo and behold - I found you, filled out your questionaire, and now have two questions: 1) How is Bandage? 2) Is Boozer still available? What beauties they both are.
Please call with your hours. We are very interested in coming tomorrow and hopefully adopting our second Boxer from you. Thank You, Stephen Downey & Summer McDowell & Maggie Dog
I LUV BOXER!!! I HAVE MY OWN
