BlueGrass Boxer Rescue, Inc.
Available Male Boxers
is a 6 year old handsome man. He is fully housebroken and crate trained, although he does not need crated. Rudi’s energy
level is moderate, so he does not need a lot of physical exercise, but rather mental stimulation. One of his favorite things
to do is play with large sticks outside, and he will happily fetch a stick. He walks nicely on lead, but needs some redirecting
when passing other dogs. Rudi enjoys short walks. Rudi loves to be the center of attention and will need
to be an only dog. He is not crazy about kids and their occasional roughness, so he will need a home without children.
Rudi will need an experienced dog owner, but will be a great addition for the right family.

Beau is approximately 4-5 years old. He is a very nice and loving boy who has had such a rough time. Upon coming into rescue, he was emaciated from parasites, and his coat was falling out. He was treated for sarcoptic mange for over 6 weeks with no drastic results. Our vet has done several skin scrapings and no mites can be found. We have come to the conclusion that his skin problem may be from food allergies and have started him on a special diet. Beau is also heartworm positive and will begin treatment as soon as we have his skin condition under control. He loves to run and play and does well with non-dominant dogs. He is learning all about housetraining and is now fully crate trained. Beau will be ready for adoption as soon as his treatment is complete.

My name is Lynx and I am a very special boy of 1-2 years of age. You see, my owner came outside to feed me one day and discovered I was blind. It is most likely I was born blind and my owner just never payed enough attention to me to notice. Upon discovering I was blind, my owner took me to the vet to be euthanized. He told the vet he did not have the time to mess with a blind dog. The vet staff convinced my owner to relinquish his rights to me in hopes of getting me into rescue. If a rescue could not be found quickly, I was still going to be euthanized. My foster mom was the only person who inquired about me, and picked me up on the day I was to be euthanized. I am so thankful to be in rescue…I am truly getting a second chance.
Once in my foster home, my mom noticed something else was not right with me. While I was at the vet being neutered and getting all my vaccinations, it was determined I am partially deaf. Adjusting to my new life has been really hard for me and my new mom. I am slowly learning to trust her and she is learning that I get easily overwhelmed. I have made great progress in just a week’s time, but I still have a ways to go. I already know the “sit” and “down” commands. Once I am fully acclimated to my new life, I am going to be a great dog. My foster mom and I are working really hard, so we can show everybody what a great boy I am. I love to play with other dogs and I’m learning to play tug-o-war. I will need to be adopted into a home with another dog. I really need another dog to be my mentor and to show me the ropes. I am not quite ready for adoption yet so check back for updates on my progress.
