Abner - Deaf - Adopted
Meet Abner. He is a beautiful fully deaf baby who just came into care from a local high kill shelter where he was picked up as a stray. He is approximately 6-9 months old with all the puppy energy. He doesn't know any hand signals nor does he have very good manners, but seems very smart and so eager to please. Abner will not be placed in a household with small children for he hasn't learned bite inhibition, he plays to rough for the smaller kiddo's. He gets along well with other dogs and can be so sweet and loving. He is like a diamond in the rough, with a little time, patience and polish, Abner can shine brightly.
Bryn is new to the program and is approximately 3 yrs old and about 40-45 pounds. She is a beautiful flashy girl that has not been socialized around other dogs. She will play with non-dominate males and she plays well with Cassie & Penny, but will not be going to a home with females. She will be placed as an only dog for she wants all the attention, toys, treats for herself. She will not be going to a home with young children because of her addiction to toys and treats, they must be over the age of 7. She is fully housetrained and appears to have very good house manners. She is very energetic and eager to please, she just wants to be loved. There should be no cats in her new home, for she doesn't care for them.
Meet my new family.
Allie and her friends Blossom & Peanut
These are shelter pics and we will be getting some better pictures of this sweet little girl very soon.
Allie is 6 months old.
She is very new to the rescue program and came from a local shelter. She was surrendered to the shelter with a cast
on her rear leg that had been on way to long and was also very wet inside. The vet that cut the cast off said she has
some soft tissue damage and muscle loss but will be just fine given some TLC and time. She may or may not have full
use of her rear leg and may carry it from time to time. We will have to wait and see if she can develope muscle again
and what her pain level may be. She is fully hearing, gets along well with other dogs, cats are unknown at this time.
She is very sweet and loveable. We will post more on Little Allie as we learn all about her.
Meet my new family. Aren't they small and precious.
Sugar Baby just came into the rescue program 5-17-07 from a local kill shelter. She is a beautiful older lady of 13. She is a very sweet lady who is extremely gentle, loving and somewhat shy. She doesn't understand why her family took her to a shelter and was picked up by us and taken again to a strange place and not her home. At her age she should be someones very loved companion and living out her days in the comfortable arms of her loved ones. She is quite healthy for her age and is up to date on all rountine vaccinations and had been spayed. She will have to have some work done on her teeth and gums for we noticed a couple rotten teeth that need to come out and have her gums trimmed back. She is a very sweet lady who is looking for a comfortable place to lay her head and a gentle hand to rest upon her. Please consider a senior boxer, the love you receive in return is PRICELESS.
Adoption Donation: None, we are looking for the perfect home where this loving lady can spend the rest of her days, months, and hopefully years.

This is me and Sandi, I am the one not jumping.
Nash is new to the rescue program. He is appx. 2 years old and a very sweet and loving boy. He loves to be with you. He is laid back for such a young boxer boy and is very content sitting by your side. He seems to get along well with the females in his foster home and we have learned that he does not want any cats in his new home. We will be posting more as we learn where his manners are and housetraining skills lay. He will be starting his vetting shortly. Please check back on Nash as we learn all about him.

2-5-07 Look at me now!
Lucy is a check boxer that just came in from a kill shelter. She is approximately 2 years old, gets along well with other dogs. She is very scared of everything and will need time and patience to relieve her fears. Life has not dealt her a good hand until now. She has started her treatment for demodex and will be one beautiful girl in time. We have also found out that she is an escape artist. She can clear a 6 ft privacy fence with no problem. She believes everyone is out to hurt her and will require some special care. We will be posting more pics as she improves and regains some trust in humans again. Lucy does not do well with cats and would need a home without them.
Kelli is a gorgeous young flashy brindle girl looking for a new home. Look at this beautiful little face, how could someone not come looking for her at a high kill shelter? She appears to be housetrained and is learning what crate training is all about. She gets along well with other dogs, cats are unknown. We will be posting an update from foster family very shortly as they learn all about Miss Kelli.
4-5-07 Update from Foster Home:
Nelson still has his puppy charm and mischief. He is a high energy little guy that loves to run and play, when he gets enough exercise his manners are great as he is very willing to please and learn new tricks. He will do wonderful in a home that is active as he wants to be busy playing and following his people around. We don’t have children, but we think he would respond well to someone his own size to buddy around with. Nelson will need to be the only dog in his new home as he has shown some jealousy and is not patient with his foster siblings and he might be too rough right now for small children (under 5 or so). He is crated during the day, but is housebroken and has a dog door that he uses when we are at home. Although he isn’t allowed to sleep with us, he tries it often just in case we will change our mind, but always winds up sleeping on his dog bed with all 4 paws in the air.
Hey, I'm Nelson. I am proximately 9-10 months old and a gorgeous dark flashy fawn boy. The nice rescue ladies do not know much about me at this point, but they will learn and promised to post more ALL ABOUT ME. I am just so thankful to be out of that high kill shelter I was in. One thing they do know is I am not a cat guy, I just cannot leave them alone. Please check back on me to learn all about me.
I am a beautiful white boy with eye patch. I have to say, I am quite striking. I am new to the rescue program and they will have to learn where my housetraining is, my manners, and crating. I am approximately 15 to 24 months old. I get along well with other dogs and cats. It is such a relief to be out of that shelter where I was on borrowed time. Please check back on me.
I'm known as Rocco and this nice young lady helped me get my pictures today at Petsupermart. I am brand new to the rescue program. I was the one that was pushed out of a car on I64 in Louisville. Thank goodness a nice caring person seen it and picked me up before I got hit. I am a very sweet guy and just can't imagine why that happened to me, but I am safe and unharmed. I am a big guy and so LOVEABLE. I am approximately 2-4 years old and appear to be housetrained. The rescue ladies will post more about me as they learn.
Hanson is brand new to the rescue program. He is 1-1.5 years old and will be just gorgeous with a few pounds added. He didn't seem to mind the kitty cats at the shelter, he gets along well with some dogs just not the extremely dominate ones. He is fully housetrained and will go into his crate. He really enjoys playing with the other boxer kids at his foster home. He also makes himself very comfortable on the couch. He rides wonderful in the car and walks very well on lead. He loves getting attention and will work really hard for that treat. He was an owner surrender at a local kill shelter.
I'm sorry it's taken this long for me to get a picture to you. Things have been great for me here. I have won over both cats. My bestfriend and play buddy's name is Zach ( I want to get pictures of us for you to see). Zach is 4 and my Mom and Dad's grandbaby. Mom and Dad are letting me run in the field...I have 25 acres plus Zachary's place next door to run on. I get to run every night....Mom or Dad get on the four wheeler (which I absolutely get so excited about I've been know to wet on myself) and they run me around the farm. We are attending the Boxer Buddies meetups. This month it is going to be in my town of, we have a Bark Park and I hope to meet tons of new boxer friends. I will be sending more pictures soon.....Love and licks, Bella
Bella had been adopted and was returned to rescue through no fault of her own. Her owners were being transferred and she was unable to go. She is a young flashy brindle girl that is a real cuddle bug. She is house trained, crate trained and has good manners. She loves kids, does great with other dogs and is very playful. She will make a great addition to some lucky family.
UPDATE FROM MY FOSTER MOM 3-10-07:
As an update, he is gaining weight and growing in energy. He is a wonderful companion - very smart and good natured. He adores other dogs and follows his people constantly. He is housebroken and crate trained. He comes and goes through the pet door with the other dogs, but he has escaped the fenced yard once so we only leave him uncrated when we're home for his safety. He is learning to play (he did not know how when he came), and runs faster than any dog I've ever seen. He's a beautiful dog that we're growing quite attached to!
My name is Buddy, the vet thinks I am about 18 months old but I my foster mom says I act much older. She says I must be a lover, not a player. I don’t play with the other dogs in my foster home, but I like them and follow them around a lot. I don’t potty in the house, I have a dog door at my new foster home, but I won’t go out alone I need at least one of my new friends to go out with me. Right now I need a lot of people attention petting me and telling me I’m good. I eat like I’m a hungry dog, but I won’t drink out of my water bowl unless someone tell me to.
Casper is a beautiful white boy with black ring around one eye. He is approximately 15-24 months old. He gets along well with other dogs, cats are unknown. He is very friendly and playful. He is new to the rescue program and we are still learning all about him.
Domino (renamed Bella)-Adopted
Domino is a very sweet girl of 14 months old. She loves to be around people and give kisses. She loves to play and jump. She gets along with all type of dogs. She is more timid with a male, only because she hasn't been around them as much as a female. She isn't too sure of cats but does not chase them or mess with them. She loves kids, although she tends to want to play a little rough, she has never hurt a kid. Domino likes to sleep in the same room as you do. She sleeps on a blanket by the bed, never in the bed and she will stay on that blanket all night. She is house broke, but needs a little work during the day time. She has used the bathroom in the house a few times when i don't take her out enough. Domino is missing a samll part of her chin due to her braking her jaw in Aug 2006. You cannot notice it at all. She looks very normal and it doesn't bother her, but because of this she cannot have hard balls, treats or chew toys. She can have soft toys and ropes. They do not bother her. She does really good in car rides and is always ready to go. She is happy to have people around her a blanket to lay on and a toy to chew on.
He will be 2 years old on September 14th he is full of energy loves to play for hours tug a war, chase the ball and he loves to be sprayed with the water hose. He is totally crate trained and is housebroken. He gets along with both sexes. He appears to be ok with cats , loves and needs to have lots of excerise. Jake will listen to you but sometimes may be stubborn. He loves to sleeep with you at night . Jake would be a wonderful addition to anyones family.
Cassie is a 2 years old little black girlie. She is very vocal and loves running after the big dogs during playtime. We are unsure of her lineage, but she is one adorable bundle of love. She is doing well in her crate and loves to cuddle up. She is also house trained, and enjoys playing with toys and other dogs. She is a very beautiful bundle of love. She seems to do well with the kitties. She has an adorable bobbed tail and the cutest wiggle when she is excited. She loves to stand on her back legs and rake the air with both of the front. She is so cute.

Holden is new to the rescue program. He is approximately 9-10 months old. He came in from a high kill shelter and is very thin at the moment. He gets along well with other dogs, kitties we are unsure of. We will post more as we learn all about Holden.
Renamed Sadie by New Family! Here is an update from the mom:
I first want to apologize for my delay in sending this. I have always had the intention of sending updated pics of "Sadie" to show her beautiful transformation. I did not have aand did not put forth the effort to make other arrangements. Thank goodness I received one for and now have several of digital files of Sadie. I wanted to make sure to send them to you all so you can see how much different she looks. Her pics on the website are kind of sad to look at. I was hoping these pics could be added to show that she is so much healthier now.
She has truly been a joy to our family. We immediately enrolled her in the puppy training program at. That helped a ton. We still work on some of her behaviors, but we really could not have asked for a better dog. I have 2 boys that play with her constantly and she shows how much she loves them.
We have had a few health issues with Sadie, but nothing that we can't get through. We have found that she has Epilepsy. The vet says that she does not have seizures frequently enough or violent enough to medicate. So we just continue to watch her closely and try to stop any of the factors that may contribute to the seizures. Since it has been cooler, she has only had one seizure since September. We are very grateful for that.
Attached please find the latest pics of our beautiful girl.
Please send this to Glenda because she was wonderful to work with. She and her husband were so helpful through the process. I can't thank them enough for the care they give. I would really like them to know that all is well.
Mercedes just came into the rescue program. Note from Foster Mom: She is about 15 months old, fawn with a white chest. she is small in size with a very sweet face and attitude. She walks well on a short lead, but like to do a jumping deer impression when you give her a longer lead. She currently is under weight, but is eating well, so I expect her to fill out quickly.
Meet Sable Sutton's New Family - what a lucky little girl!
Sable is approximately 1 to 1.5 years old. She is a beautiful flashy brindle girl. She was picked up as a stray by a local kill shelter and was never reclaimed. She is very sweet and loving and just wants a little kindness and attention. She rides very well in the car and seems to have some very nice manners. She does not like cats and will not go to a home where there are kitties. We are still learning about little Sable and will update as we learn.
2 Bonded Sisters
Roxie and Rosie-Adopted Together
Roxie and Rosie bonded sisters ended up in a high kill shelter, we don't understand why. They are 5 years old, have exceptional house manners and have been obedience trained. They are perfect girls in every way. They get along well with other dogs and are so loving and gentle. We want to keep these 2 girls together if possible. You cannot ask for better companions than these 2. They have been cat tested and seem to not mind them being in the household.
Adoption Donation: Adopted
Rex is a beautiful cropped and docked flashy brindle boy of 12-15 months of age. He is beautiful. His foster mom did his bio and we would like for you to meet Rex:
Rex seems to be housebroken - he's not even had one accident in the house. He's high energy and likes to play (very puppish). While still a little wild and crazy (puppish),he is very attentive and willing to be trained. We DO NOT trust him left alone to his own curiousities and devices by any means at this point! He gets along well with my two senior female dogs (although they as well as we correct him when he becomes irritating for them).
He uses the pet door to go outside on his own and is very proud of that (when we are home), and he's learning to walk on a leash (heeling) very well. He stays in a large crate/kennel inside while we are away working and pees in it lightly (who can blame him). He sleeps and mingles well with the other dogs, prefering the couch to the floor! He looked very malnutritioned (starved)when he came to us, but he's slowly gaining weight with regular meals and evening bones. He's gaining his strength back with rest, cold medication, and a non stressful enviroment.
He's absolutely adorable and will make a wonderful family dog!
Dudley is new to the program and not much is known at this point. He is under 12 months old, closer to 5-6 months, and has the most beautiful brindle stripping. He is crate trained and learning very quickly about the housetraining, he almost has it down pat. He has wonderful house manners and is proving to be a delight to his foster mom. He gets along great with all other dogs and is a very submissive boy. His foster mom is amazed at how wonderful Dudley is. Cats we are unsure of.
Lilly never made it to the adopted pages. She is approximately 9-12 months old. Meet her new family.
Denver is a beautiful flashy fawn boy who just came into care. What we have learned so far is he is about 2-3 years old and seems to be very smart. He is fully housetrained and playful. He just loves everyone. He also doesn't seem to mind the kitty cats. We will be posting more on Denver as we learn.
His foster mom is unable to let him go- He is HOME!
1-16-07 I-Max was adopted and had a wonderful home. Their youngest son became very sick and was rushed to the hospital a few days later and was hospitalized. The doctor determined he was highly allergic and it was brought on by adding a dog to the household. I-Max is looking for a new home to call his own.
I-Max is new to the program. He is a beautiful high flashy boy of 6 years old. He is a wonderful boy who is very loving and only wants to please.

Adopted by Foster Mom
I am a eight year old female girl that is in need
of a new home. I am house trained, and I don't even need a crate. I am good with other male dogs but
not females. I also get along well with the kitties. Please consider a senior for your home.
We seniors are easy to acclimate into a new home and we are really no trouble at all. Just give me food, water and LOVE
and I will make you the happiest person on this earth - promise.
12-5-07 UPDATE: Charity is using her bad leg wonderfully now that she is healthier and wanting to really play with the other dogs. She will have a little different gait but is doing so very well. She is also getting the housetraining thing down and is doing very well for such a young pup. This little girl is truely amazing and so very smart. She will be required to attend puppy classes so that she can learn her manners and the new owners can learn to train her in a positive manner.
Charity is only 4 weeks old and will not be ready for several more weeks. She came into rescue as an owner surrender. The mother refused to feed and care for her and the owners vet suggested sending her to the bridge. She is a wonderful little girl who certainly deserves a chance. She has a bad leg that is a little malformed but the vet thinks she will use it as she grows but will have a funny gait. She is currently using her 3 other legs and is doing wonderful. She will be on the small side. Please keep checking back on little Charity.
Kelly: Sorry. Annette got distracted
last night. Here are some
Jewel is a 3 month old baby brindle girl. She was found wandering in a busy parking lot by a lady who tried to find her owner but was unsuccessful after several days. She notified us and we have also tried to contact the owner for Jewel is microchipped but the owner has not made contact with us, we have called, left messages for several days. We have ran an ad in the newspaper with still no response. We have done everything legal before she was posted. Jewel is ready to find a new home that will keep her safe and secure. One that will love her and be willing to go through puppy classes with her so she can achieve her full potential and the new owner can learn how to train her positively.
Payge is a beautiful flashy girl that was rescued from a bad situation. She was being kept outside on a chain because she chewed on the ladies plants and a neighbor rescued her from the chain. She is a very loving girl of a year or less, has lots of energy, housetrained, but not very good manners. She is learning but will take time for it to sink in. She could use a good obedience class with new family so they can learn how to train and she can learn to trust them and obey. She is up to date on her vaccines and spayed. Are you the right family for beautiful Payge?
Winter-Adopted (aka Buffy)
I wanted to give you an update on Winter, who is now called Buffy. She is doing great. You would not have believed how seamless her introduction was to the family. It is truly strange to think she has only been with us a few days. Buffy is already playing, eating, sleeping and using the bathroom on the household schedule. We plan to continue using the crate while we are gone from the house but she is doing wonderful. Attached are some pictures of Buffy with my two dogs. As you can see from the pictures, she is getting along just fine with my two. The one picture is of Buffy curled up with my male bulldog mix and the other is Buffy resting her head on my 12 year old female mutt. Thanks for your assistance in making this adoption happen. Tell Anita, I will send some better pictures in the future. It is hard to snap Buffy's picture unless she is sleeping.
I am being called Winter. I am approximately 9-10 months old and very loveable. I am very thin at the moment but the rescue ladies have assured me that won't last for long. I will be fed 3 times a day and get supplements. I have one brown eye and one blue. My pretty blue looks funny in my pic but it is a light blue. More will be posted about me as they learn. I am getting my vetting done 1-8-07 and will be available shortly. Please check back to see how I progress.
LuLu (Lucy) Family
1-17-07 LuLu (aka Lucy) is ready for her new home.
12-5-07 UPDATE: LuLu (aka Lucy) is doing wonderful during her heartworm treatment and is almost complete. She will be ready for her new home very shortly.
LuLu is approximately 1.5 years old and is Heartworm Positive. Her treatment will begin as soon as we can get her other medical issues taken care of. She is a very dark reverse brindle known as Seal. She has been bred and is a very submissive little girl. We will post more on LuLu as we learn all about her. We really need your help on her medical issues.
12-5-07 UPDATE: Harmony is much healthier now and trying very hard on getting the housetraining issue down. She is a real looker, very sweet and loveable. We are currently trying to get new pictures so you can see how great she looks.
Harmony is new to the program. Everyone worked really hard on trying to get this little girl from a kill shelter and into rescue. She is approximately 1.5-2 years old. She came in with a skin condition and has had a skin scrape, her problem comes from malnutrition. She has received all her vaccines and is heartworm negative. She will have to obtain a healthier level before her spay. She will be a LOOKER once she is healthier and a few pounds can be added. More will be posted as we learn all about little Harmony.
Jersey is new to the rescue program. She is approximately 9 yrs old and has been with the same owner since puppyhood. How she ended up abandoned with the owner moving out of state and leaving her in an empty house, no one knows. She was very hungry when she was picked up by the sister and released to rescue. She is a cropped and docked lady who is set in her ways. She is wonderful, good manners, housetrained, loving and quite irresistable. We would love to find her a home where she can be the queen again, preferably without to many other dogs and no very small children. Jersey gets along very well with the kitty cats.
Adoption Donation: $150.00 or will waiver some for the right home.

Kia is a new lady to the rescue. She is a beautiful dark flashy brindle lady who is approximately 10+ years old. She was turned into the shelter because the lady who owned her had a heart attack and will be going into assisted living when she is out of the hospital. Kia is fully housetrained, has great manners and is looking for a new home. She doesn't have a problem with other dogs and is in great health for her age. She doesn't understand what has happened to her family and why she has been displaced. Can you offer this girl a loving home and family of her own?
Adoption Donation: Donation is waived in order for Kia to find just the right home to spend the rest of her life in. Please consider a senior boxer lady.

7-13-07 Olive went to Rainbows Bridge.
Olive has a rather sad story for an older lady. We were contacted by a lady that said she has found a boxer girl that had an injured leg. She had tried finding the owner and finally found someone who knew something about the dog. The owner just moved off and left poor old Olive there to fend for herself. She had been running loose for a couple weeks and the neighbors would not feed her. Thank goodness this lady cared enough to try and help Olive. We picked her up and she is indeed old, over 10 yrs possibly 11-12. She has seen the vet and is healthy other than being way to thin, but does have an old injury to her back leg that she carries. She does have arthritis in her feet and has a little problem getting up and down, we have her on pain meds. The meds are the best that the vet can do at this point because of her age. She is a very well mannered lady and only wants a little attention from you. She is having a problem getting along with the other dogs now, we are unsure if her pain level has increased or she has just become more settled in her foster home and just doesn't want anything to do with the other dogs. She is very thankful to be in a house again with a dog bed to lay on.
There will be no adoption donation for Olive - we are currently seeking a home that can let her live whatever time she has remaining in comfort with some Tender Loving Care. A home that can offer her a nice cozy warm bed to lay on and rest her weary head, a home where she can get some gentle rubbing and attention, a home that can give her plenty to eat to build her strength back up.
