Homes Needed

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).

Roxy and Mimi
Roxy and Mimi


We are looking for a new home for two red and white bitches, ROXY and MIMI, who have lived together for several years and their current owner very much hopes to find a new forever home for them together. They are both speyed, vaccinated and microchipped.They are coming to us because there has been a change in domestic circumstances and it is no longer possible for them to be regularly exercised, and soon new working commitments will mean they will be left at home for long periods each day.

Roxy is 7 years old and Mimi is 6 years old.

ROXY is the dominant bitch of the two. She is not good when meeting other dogs. She tries to attack them and when pulled back turns on MIMI in frustration. This means they will need a very strong handler, preferably two. Also, Roxy is very good jumper, so will need a secure garden with high fences. Just lately they have suffered a little from separation anxiety, so they will need a home where the times left at home will be as minimal as possible in the early days. No doubt this would disappear when settled into a new home.      

Both girls are excellent with children and are currently living with a toddler. Both are good with people once they have been introduced.

Please contact Sue Fox on 01603 890655 if you think you can offer a good home to these girls.


Washington - is a 1 Year old male Boxer x Staffie who is vaccinated, chipped & neutered. Full of life as you would expect from a year old. He needs to have a bit more weight on him before he can leave the kennels. Seems ok with other dogs but  no idea about cats or children. He would be too much in a very young family and needs children 10 years onwards.
