Buckeye Boxer Rescue, Inc.

Buckeye Boxer Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to educate the public regarding proper pet care and ownership. While we are more than happy to help you re-home your pet, we are also here to answer any questions that you may have and offer assistance to those that desire to keep their Boxer.

If you need help with behavioral, aggression, house-training and/or obedience training issues, we will work with you as long as possible to help you keep your Boxer. The volunteers at BBR , Inc. are just an email away at BBR email

Another great source of information can be found at Boxer Dog Planet where there are over 900 Boxer owners at your disposal.

How to Adopt a Boxer

Please note: at this time BBR, Inc. is not processing out-of-state applications. Please contact a rescue in your state if you are interested in adopting a Boxer.

All potential 'forever' homes are carefully screened. The first step is to fill out an Adoption Application Our application processing volunteers will screen your application and, if accepted, will verify the information contained therein. References will be checked and a home visit will be set-up at a time that is mutually convenient to your family and our volunteer.

While we do allow you to express an interest in a specific dog, we may suggest, based on your application and home/family life, a dog better suited to your living situation. You are under no obligation to follow our suggestion, however, we will not place a dog with you that your family and home are not suited for. Our goal is permanent placement for our Boxers and we reserve the right to make the final decision regarding placement.

We welcome phone calls and the chance to talk about our Boxers, but please do fill out an application first. Understand that we are not a shelter and you may not visit the available dogs until you have gone through the entire application process and been approved as a potential adoptive family.
