Albuquerque Boxers - Available - Need Foster Homes For Our Roswell Dogs!!!


Here is Buster, he is available for adoption and ready to go. He has been neutered, up to date on shots and chipped. He was on a test drive with a family with cats and it is not working out. He either needs to be an only dog or with a female who can help calm him down (he is a typical high energy boxer). He is 18 months old and absolutely loves kids (there are 5 in the household). Want to know more? Contact us about him!

Please send us an email to meet Buster. 

Thanks Becky for fostering Buster!


Now Available and looking for a foster home or permanent home asap: Link is a 1 1/2 year old wonderfully sweet boxer who had a rough start in life. This sweet boy somehow ended up in the city pound at around 4 months old. Scheduled to be euthanized, a woman and her young son adopted him. She had him about a week, when she decided that he's was too active to be left at home alone in her small apartment. 

We moved to a better house with a bigger yard in hopes of giving our animals a better place to grow up. All was good until Link decided that he wanted to get out of our back yard and go through the neighbors yard to get to the front yard where he was closer to us. Link doesn't understand that the front yard isn't as safe and he needs to stay in the back when he isn't in the house with us. So, Link repeatedly gets out of the back fence. The neighbor is not happy and has threatened to make sure that Link stops this behavior and has made it difficult for us to keep him. He currently lives with another male dog and there have been stray cat coming into the yard without any aggressive tendencies by Link.

So we are asking for somebody to open their heart and home to allow Link the chance to live a life full of the same love and kindness that flows from his very presence.

If you want to know more about Link, please email us!

Thanks Denise for fostering Link!

Sweet Pea/Phoebe

Sweet Pea
Sweet Pea
Sweet Pea is a 3 year old female who gets along great with many types of dogs (she was with small, energetic dogs initially).  Her current family situation is in turmoil and she needs to be rehomed.

If you want to get to know Sweet Pea, please email us!

Thanks Louis for fostering Sweet Pea!


Ali is a little over a year old and is very high energy.  She loves other dogs (and animals) and even gets along with a cat friend she lives with right now.  She still needs work on being potty trained, she needs to get in for her shots and microchip - and may need to get spayed.  She is currently in El Paso so we need to find a foster home or permanent home for her as soon as we can.

If you want to find out more about Ali, please email us!

Thanks Noelle for fostering Ali!

Please fill out the adoption form if you're interested in any of our dogs AND send an email to us for a quick response!

Roswell Boxers

We could use help with fostering any of our Roswell dogs so we can get them to Albuquerque and help them find their forever home quickly!


Here's our newest addition to the Roswell rescue. This is Maxmillian. He was found in Hobbs abandoned with another smaller dog chained in a backyard for a month. They were living on rainwater and the neighbors when they finally realized they were abandoned called animal control. He's been with Amazing Grace Rescue (thank you guys) and they have had him vetted. He is neutered and U/T/D on shots and is about 7 years old. They also put good weight on him since he was in terrible shape when they rescued him. We also had him vetted and he is on Dusoquin for his joints but the arthitis seems to be primarily effecting his left leg. We hope there is someone in our Boxer lovers group that will want to bring a senior Boxer into their home and give him a great life. He's very sweet, but because of the arthritis he cannot really play so he should not be with larger more active dogs. He is also housebroken. He cries when we're not with him, but It is more from neglect than separation anxiety so we think that will be solved while he is with us. We love the way he folds his legs when he is laying down. He looks like he is praying. Please let us know if you are interested in our wonderful senior, Maxmillian.
Please contact us by email.

Thank you Jo for fostering Maxmillian!

If you would like to find out more information, you can contact Daniel (575-642-7283) or Lisa (575-642-7281).

Please contact Daniel or Lisa at the numbers above to find out if you are the right match for Chief!


Koda Hi, my name is Koda. I am a sweet fawn boxer who is 8 years old. I have lived with a blue heeler my entire life and I am very friendly. I like children and any human that will give me attention. I like dog bones to keep my teeth clean and love to go on walks. I would still be at home, but my owner died suddenly and now I need to find someone who will care for me. If you are interested in adopting Koda, please contact Cathy.

If you can help me, please contact Cathy Hill @ 702.417.7968!

For Adoption by Owner - Disclaimer

BRA almost always has a lack of foster homes, and therefore regretfully cannot serve every single Boxer dog in New Mexico who is displaced. We devised this page as a way for the public to be notified of additional Boxer dogs in need, but BRA does not get involved with behavior evaluations, health checks, vaccinations, etc. You, as the adopter, must understand from the family and the dog's records, what health or behavioral issues may exist. Boxer Rescue of Albuquerque does not charge a fee to the family to list the dog here or to the adopter who "adopts" the dog. We do not advocate offering pets for free, but it is ultimately up to each individual family whether they will charge a fee to the new person acquiring the dog (it's best for the dog if s/he comes with a fee because it helps to weed out people who acquire unwanted pets for use in dog fighting rings or who sell to animal testing facilities, etc.). Though the Boxers on this page remain with their families and do not enter our rescue program, we still care very much about the dog's well being and fate. That is why we allow descriptions to be posted here, in hopes that we can help a Boxer find a better home than if the family were to just give the dog away or take him or her to a shelter.

Our FABO dogs Max, Missy, Guera, Camber, Murphy, Holly, Matilda and Milo have all found new homes while Buffy is back in her original home!
