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


Meg is a 3 year old female who was found by a wonderful person who realized that not only was she skinny, but had a very bad ear condition.  After going to the vet, it was determined that she had so much stuff in her ear that she could not hear.  They successfully removed over 75% of it from her ear in the first surgery and is now getting normal cleanings to finish it off.  She is slowly gaining some weight too.  She has been around other dogs but, as always, we prefer to find her a wonderful home with a male (we are not sure how she is with cats) and kids!

Please send us an email to meet Meg. 

Thanks Linda for fostering Meg!


Thor is a 17 week old male and a very rare reverse (black) brindle.  He hasn't been socialized like many puppies so he is very shy around new people.  At first, he wasn't too fond of new dogs but now is opening up and playing like a normal puppy.  He is very high energy like a pup and needs to find a home with a confident dog friend and a strong pack leading family.  He is good on a leash but can get spooked easily - the more he goes out, the more he gains good confidence and learns to be a curious dog.

If you want to meet Thor, please email us!

Thanks Shawna and Keith for fostering Thor!

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!


Buster is a young male, somewhere between 12 and 18 month old.  He is good around other dogs but does have some food aggression (typical for a dog left at the shelter and allowed to get underweight).  He doesn't like cats though.  Would prefer he goes with a female since we like to place gender-opposites as much as we can.  He is in Roswell now and available.

If you are interested in Buster, please contact us by email.







Thank you Jo for fostering Buster!

This is Chief, a four-year old boxer/pit mix who needs to find his new forever home.  His family has changed their living situation and can no longer keep him.

He likes to play fetch, is neutered and weighs about 60 pounds.  He is a very sweet boy and would make a family very happy!  He likes to be outside as much as possible and would need a fenced yard.

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!
