Most of the Boxers ABR brings in are abused, neglected and malnourished. Some are ill and some have broken limbs, and many of them are heartworm positive from lack of a simple preventive. Grizz was heartworm positive and very symptomatic and needed treatment as soon as possible, but he was so ill and malnourished he had to get well and gain weight and strength before he could be treated. Almost all the heartworm positive dogs can receive treatment with ABR’s help in their forever homes, but Grizz went to the perfect foster family to get him well and get him treated.

This 7 year old boy is a treasure. He is calm and loving. He lives with 8 other dogs and gets along just fine. He doesn’t live with kids but he’s calm enough to be a maybe. He is house and crate trained. He’s set to be neutered now he’s healthy. This is a middle aged Boxer you’ll want to meet if you’re looking for calm, sweet and affectionate.
