Pointer Mix

2/09/13 -

Check out Trooper's gorgeous spots! This beautiful pointer-mix is a sweet and loving dog. He is house-trained and gets along great with his three canine foster siblings. Trooper has free run of the house when no one is home and is completely trustworthy. He loves to be outside and go for walks. This boy has a great personality and is a very loving! It is apparent that he was someone's pup at one time but, sadly, no one came forward to claim him.

Trooper has what is believed to be Cerebral Hyperplasia. He was most likely born with the condition and won't get better or worse. Cerebral Hyperplasia causes Trooper to walk funny and occasionally just fall down! Trooper was found wandering in the Towson, MD area back in November and was brought to a vet clinic in a very weak and emaciated state. He is currently gaining some much needed weight and strength. He is about 62 lbs and should gain at least 20 more. Trooper will need to go to a home with no or very few steps. Carpet/area rugs would be ideal versus tile or hardwood flooring. His foster mom currently assists him in and outside with a harness. He has been around older children and we do feel he would be fine with younger children, however, they may be knocked down in some of his more wobbly moments.

Won't you consider giving this special boy the loving, forever home he deserves?

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read our Adoption Procedure, by clicking on the link at the top of this page, then fill out an online application.

Boxers and Applicants are not matched on a first come, first served basis. Not all applications are approved. On average, it takes between a week and 1 month to adopt a Rescue Boxer to an approved applicant, depending on your personal circumstances and flexibility.  

Matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and theirs, increases the application review time and adoption time.  

And yes, we realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on, may be adopted before you're approved.   Should your first choices all ready found their forever home, we want you to advise us as to other dogs you are interested in at .  Or let us suggest a few that we feel will match your home.  That is what we are good at.   And be happy for the ones that have been placed... and know that there are way too many fantastic dogs waiting in their place.

Our non-profit organization is wholly comprised of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing our wonderful Boxers placed in loving, permanent homes and given another chance for a happy life. Our process may seem slow, but if you are patient, we will try to provide you with a devoted, loving companion - a Boxer.

We hope you feel that the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
