NEEDS OF A BOXER

A BOXER is a wonderful medium sized family dog.  He/she will be a great companion and friend to you and your children.  He is an active dog and WILL NEED VERY STRICT TRAINING for the first year of his life. This will require one training session a week for you and your family and 10 minutes a day reinforcement training. If you don't have the time for this training then do not get a Boxer!

He will enthusiastically welcome most people you invite into your home but can be very reserved if he feels distrustful of certain individuals. Therefore he will make an excellent watch dog, his looks and barking will scare off any intruder, although little do they know that he is a "pussy cat" at heart!

He can be stubborn and aggravating then turn around and delight and entertain you with his playful antics and exuberance for life. He will play gently with the young children, rough-house with the adults, then stand over you as if to say "come on you guys, I am just getting started".   You can hurt his feelings easily by the tone of your voice or by ignoring him.   Love him and your love will be returned ten fold.  Anyone who does not love a BOXER does not know a BOXER.

The BOXER is definitely NOT an "outdoor" breed!  If he would not be allowed to live in the house as part of your family you would be better to choose another more independent breed!  A BOXER does not have the coat needed for the cold winter and because of their shorter muzzle, they do not tolerate the heat of summer.   They must be protected from the elements, always. Besides, they would be broken hearted if they couldn't be with their people - sharing the sofa or easy chair and your nibbles, as you all watch TV in the evening.







NEW HOME WANTED
NB: All dogs placed through this site are "Free to a good home".

  • No pedigree to be made available with these dogs except if the dog or bitch is registered on the Limited register.

8 year old
Fawn and white
Speyed female
Housetrained
Used to young children
and other animals
It is with great sadness and a very heavy heart to ask/say this! We have a lovely 8yo female (desexed) boxer called Maggie, who we need to re-home. My husband has been offered a job overseas and we leave at the end of September.
Maggie is a fantastic family friend and is perfect with our children (16 month son and 5 year old daughter).
Maggie has shared our family home for over 4 years now. She is a lovely dog with a wonderful, kind and loving nature. She has never shown any sign of aggression towards anything, she is very submissive and is well house trained.
All we want, is to make sure Maggie goes to a good home with people who will make her a part of their family and show her lots of love and affection!


Urgent homes are required for the above dogs!

(NB: NO PUPPIES are to be sold through this resource!!)

Note to reliquishing owners: Please ensure that the person you are dealing with is a genuine Boxer lover and has the right conditions required to keep your dog happy and healthy.
  1. Ask them the questions on our Adopt a Boxer Form to help get to know the new prospective owner.
  2. Do not just have the person view the dog at your home, but insist that you visit their home and take the dog with you to see how it behaves in this new environment (children, other pets etc) and how the new prospective owner relates to the dog.
  3. Let them know the diet the dog has been kept on to avoid tummy upsets.
By taking these extra precautions you will help guarantee that this will be the last "Forever" home for your Boxer and he will be happy.





HOME AVAILABLE FOR MATURE BOXER
NB: All dogs placed through this site are "Free to a good home".

Note to relinquishing owners ....
  • No pedigree to be made available with these dogs except if the dog or bitch is registered on the Limited register.
  • All dogs/bitches MUST be desexed, as all dogs are "Pet Only" and are not for breeding!

Male
will neuter

Will sleep inside
I work, my wife doesn't.

We have dog baby sitters in adult children for when we are away
Yes fenced but it is small property, it has a gate to the beach with many friendly dogs (and people) on it. I walk our current boxer 1-2 times per day.
We have a female speyed Boxer 4 yrs old and a cat 8-9 years old.

The new boxer would be treated as one of the family and must already be a house dog or we wouldn't take him.

Either sex
Will Spey or Neuter
I'm a full-time at home mum with 2 children under 8 so I am home apart from school drop-offs and pick-ups. One day a week I spend a couple of hours at my son's school helping with literacy.
We live on acreage.
Yes, high fence at the back, front and side fences electric
One female boxer, seven-years-old One rabbit and one guinea-pig.
We adore boxers and understand their idiosyncrasies. Our female boxer, Kajanee, would love to share the couch with a friend and we're looking forward to seeing her share the rest of her life with a partner in crime. We're an indoor dog family and believe in being responsible owners, so will make sure our adopted boxer is kept safe and happy. We're also very outdoorsy and healthy people. We love to run about the yard, local oval and beach with our boxer and would love to see the two of them having a ball, or running away from each other with a ball playing chasey! You'd never have to spend a second worrying about how much we love your special and missed friend. He, or she will become an instant member of our family.

Please contact the above if you have a mature Boxer that needs a new home!
Please ensure that this dog is spayed or neutered!

(NB: NO PUPPIES are to be sold through this resource!!)
