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


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).



MONTY - is a dark brindle boy who is castrated, inoculated and microchipped.  He has lived with this family since a puppy but at 6 months of age he was attacked by a collie whilst out on his walk. This appears to have had a devastating affect on him.

The result is that he is very aggressive with other dogs and initially he is wary of new people. This appears to be the result of anxiety, but we cannot be sure. He has been to training classes and has made a little progress, but now he is looking for a new home. 

Monty needs to be the only dog and because of his problems there cannot be any children in the family. He is a good house dog.

An ideal home for Monty would be one where his handler has a great deal of experience in handling a difficult dog. A bonus would be a family living in a rural area where he is less likely to encounter other dogs on his walks or they live in a home with a very large garden where he can get a lot of exercise. 


Here we have the lovely Brynn who is being fostered in Norfolk after her owner was sent to jail and she had been left in a dog pound.  She is an unspeyed boxer cross mastiff approx 12 years of age.  She loves her food, sleeping on the settee and having her back and tummy scratched.  She is lovely with all visitors and quite a character.
However she is not good with other dogs and we desperately need a dog and pet free home with a family who will give her a comfy retirement for however long she has.  Still active and enjoys her walks, but not really capable of marathons.  She walks well on the lead if walked on her own but sometimes pulls if she sees another dog and because she is part mastiff, she is quite strong.  Brynn has several lumps and bumps which our Vet has examined but due to her age it has been decided not to take any action.  None of them bother her and none have enlarged or changed since she came to us early this year.
 Norfolk Boxer Rescue will be responsible for any veterinary care which Brynn needs so if any of you think you or someone you know may be able to help please contact Sue on 01603 890655


BENTLEY - is a 4 year old entire brindle and white boy.  He is good and very affectionate with all people (he likes to sit on your lap) and good with children.  He has lived with a cat.  Like most boxers he pulls on the lead, but is manageable.  He is healthy and is not destructive when left alone.  At present he is being left for a maximum of 5 hours. 

Unfortunately a neighbour's large dog and Bentley spend a lot of time snarling at each other through the fence, and the result is that Bentley cannot now be trusted with other dogs.  He is looking for a forever home where he is the only dog with a family who has the time to spend on him.
