Hey, i was reading your posts about boxers. hey are the best dogs! We are getting another dog, and want to get a boxer. I had one years ago. I live in East Tennessee, so adopting from second chance is probably out of the question. Do you have any suggestions? i hate to get a pup from a breeder when there are so many dogs that are in need of homes.

Hi...yes boxers are the best. Not that I'm biased or anything. LOL. There is a rescue group called Middle Tennessee Boxer rescue that adopts out to Middle and East Tennesse. Here is their site. mtbr dot org/ I hope you got that since we can't put actual sites here anymore but if not just google it. We have dealt with them for transports before and they are a good group. Let me know how that works out. I agree though, so many pups need forever homes so if you can adopt I highly reccommend it. You won't regret it, rescues are the best!!!

I drove to Atlanta to adopt my boxer I had before. He was in a shelter there and scheduled to be euthanized the next day. i checked that site, but they don't seem to have many available. I wonder if they haven't updated in a while or something.

hmm.not sure they are all volunteers and I know that it gets crazy so the sites don't usually get updated often. Maybe you could call them? What we suggest is filling out an application and then a volunteer will call you to schedule a homecheck and get you approved and then once a dog becomes available they call you for a meet and greet. You can meet as many as you want until you find the one that is right for you. The other thing is to call a local shelter and leave them your name and what you are looking for and they will call if they get one in.

maybe you could check your local shelter? my best friend got hers from a shelter and he's amazing. i also got one of our dogs, but she's not a boxer from a shelter, and she too was scheduled to be euthanized

Oh wow....i just went to petfinder. com. It lists only pets in need of adoption from shelters and such. Plus you can enter in which breed you are looking for. What an excellent site, just wanted to share.
