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


Here is Bella, she is available for adoption and ready to go. She has been spayed, up to date on shots and chipped. She was on a test drive with another dog but seems to want to be an only dog.  She was treated terribly before she came to us - used as a breeder and thrown out when no longer needed (her family was even contacted when she was found and they told the shelter to just get rid of her).

She needs someone patient who wants to work with her - she has great potential and jsut needs a chance now! Want to know more? Contact us about her!

Please send us an email to meet Bella.


Thanks John for fostering Bella!


Joey is a young 18 month old male who was found wondering around town.  He is up to date on shots, about to be neutered and chipped.  He gets along great with all his boxer siblings - just a normal high energy male!

Please send us an email to meet Joey.


Thanks Doug and Sheryl for fostering Joey!


Buster (9.5 months old) is an eager to please, energetic, people loving fifty- six pound pup.  He did very well with the Acoma training methods, can entertain himself for long periods of time with a ball or other toy and really loves to be with one or both of us. He just really likes people. He especially likes to cuddle up beside or between our legs in the evenings.

Please send us an email to meet Buster.


Thanks Tom for fostering Buster!


Moses (9.5 months old) is truly devoted to his owners. When he and Buster are outside playing, he'll suddenly appear inside, where we are, seemingly just to say hi or maybe he's checking to make sure all's well! He's quite the "touchy, feely" type! He does pretty darn well when walking on leash. He's not allowed on furniture in the house. But at night, in the sunroom, about an hour before bedtime, he really likes to curl up between our legs and sleep. At 62 pounds, he's quite the "lap dog"! He loves being touched! 

Please send us an email to meet Moses.


Thanks Tom for fostering Moses!

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!

For Adoption By Owner/Rescue

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!
