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 enquiries@norfolkboxerrescue.co.uk

 

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.  She has  been placed in a temporary foster home but is ideally looking for a long term foster home where  she can have an easy retirement and a warm bed.  She is proving to be a very friendly girl, dog friendly and ignores cats out on walks. She's 11 years old, has a few lumps and bumps and is fully house trained and has been speyed. Brynn is feeding up nicely and is putting on some weight after being stressed in kennels. She travels well in the car and generally seems to be a relaxed girl who likes to sleep on the sofa but still has plenty of life in her and still pulls on the lead when out for a walk.  Brynn will be fully vaccinated before she leaves her foster home to go to  a quieter household but she could go with another calm dog and somewhere  where she will ge lots of attention and cuddles.  Brynn's necessary vets bills will be covered by Norfolk Boxer Rescue throughout her life.

STAR - is a 2 and a 1/2 year old red and white boxer-cross bulldog girl who has been spayed and inoculated. She originally came in due to a family break up, resulting in long periods alone during the day but has been returned as she is very strong on the lead.

Playful and affectionate and loves her cuddles. Star is excellent with people and although she likes children she has never actually lived with them, so we would recommend that she finds a home with older children. Typically, she chases cats, and is good with bigger male dogs - not so good with smaller ones. Good on her harness when out on walks but will pull hard towards other dogs. Luckily she is easily distracted with her ball or a stick!

Megan originally came to us due to a relationship break up but has been returned through no fault of her own but her new owner passed away suddenly. She is a white 8 year old female, OK on the lead but pulls a bit, but if put on a Halti she is OK. Off the lead she is good. She is used to cats, but has never lived with children, is very healthy and, like most boxers, is a bit excitable.
Is used to being left on occasions and has never been destructive. 
 
Megan has now gone to a foster home and this is what they have to say about her: Meghan is a 7 (nearly 8) year old Boxer, she is very friendly, likes other confident dogs, will try to be dominant with submissive or unsure dogs, but with careful introductions she gets over it. She loves cuddles and gives kisses. Fully vaccinated. We have noticed she is food posessive with other dogs but this is probably due to the fact she has been an only dog.
