at NBR, believe that a Boxer is just about the perfect
friend. However, he or she will demand a lot from
you. They'll rely on you for nearly everything;
food, water, shelter, protection, training, exercise,
grooming, veterinary care, and of course love and
companionship. While it is important to choose the
right Boxer for your needs, it is equally important to
ensure that you can meet theirs. You must prepare
for their arrival, and make them a well-mannered and
welcome member of your community. The
responsibilities of being a guardian of any dog are
great, but the love and friendship you'll receive in
return is priceless.
We are always in need of foster
THE ADOPTION PROCESS:
Applicants are not matched on a first come, first served
basis. On average, it takes between 3 weeks to 3 months to

get over one hundred applications a week. 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. We are all
volunteers and are doing the best we can with the
resources we have, please be patient.
We hope you feel that the right
Boxer is worth waiting for.
EMERGENCY SURGERY FOR
Poor Charlie had to have
emergency surgery at a Specialty
Hospital to retrieve cloth
fabric from his stomach and
intestines. Luckily the
surgeon was able to "milk" some
of the pieces that were in his
small intestines back into his
stomach so no incisions had to
be made in his intestinal wall.
Hopefully he will recover
without incident but the doctors
will reevaluate him further when
he has recuperated from his
OK, they're both boxers
and way cute, that's easy to
say. They both have black
noses, true. Both of them
love treats (you'll have to
take my word on that one).
Both are very handsome and
well behaved, but what else?
One is black, the other is
white, so it's not color....
