Norfolk Boxer Rescue NEEDS YOU !


From time to time boxer dogs come to us at very short notice, it usually happens when we do not have a prospective adoptive home immediately available.  In these circumstances we have no alternative but to place the dog into kennels.  This is very costly as well as being an added and unwanted disruption in the life of the rescued dog.  However, there is an alternative!

We are, therefore, looking to compile a list of people willing to foster, on a short term and perhaps at short notice, a boxer, who through no fault of its own, needs a home.  We have had such wonderful people in the past, but experience has shown that these foster carers become so attached to the dogs that they very often go on to adopt them.  This of course is wonderful, but it does result in our foster carer list diminishing.We are now starting a new list can we put your name on it?  If you feel able to help and want more information please forward your details to


BRUNO - is a 7 year old white with a brindle eye patch, male boxer.  He is housetrained, neutered, vaccinated and chipped.  Bruno has lots of energy which would suit an active family with older children.  He is good with other dogs although he hasn't been off the lead.  He has never lived with cats and doesn't like thunder or fireworks but has a lovely temperament with good mannners.  He is being rehomed through no fault of his own but for family health reasons.  

Bruno has been handed in due to a death in the family. He is proving to have a delightful personality but is unhappy in kennels.  It  appears he has had little formal training and has a lack of understanding of commands.  All dogs he has met so far he just wants to play with, he has never been let off his lead so has little idea of how to behave towards other dogs.  Bruno  needs plenty of human contact and he requires an experienced boxer owner who perhaps has a middle aged bitch to teach him some doggy etiquette.  Due to previous severe lack of exercise he needs building up on a good quality food and some steady exercise.  An alternative would be for a foster home to start his training.



NBR regrets that, due to the difficulty of arranging home visits and subsequent aftercare, they can only consider homes within NORFOLK and SUFFOLK.

Usually when Boxer dogs are given to us for rehoming, we can check our records of those people who have already expressed an interest in adopting a rescue Boxer and a match can be found. If you would like to be added for when a dog becomes available please complete the online application so that we can contact you or call Sue Fox on 01603 890655.  Occasionally the preferences or circumstances of our registered potential adopters do not match exactly with those of the dog to be rehomed and we have to re-advertise. We are doing so now for the following dog(s).

If you feel you can offer one of our dogs a home please contact us:
