Misty is a complete love with people! She gets along with her younger male
sibling, but there are times that she gets into a mode of wanting to defend
herself and picks a fight. She cannot be around cats at all though!
She is spayed and up-to-date on all shots and tested heartworm negative. She does have an old shoulder injury and her front right should er sometimes pops in and out while she plays. She is not food aggressive at all. She would probably be better off as a single dog or maybe one other dog.
She is being fostered in Artesia but can get you a lot more information is needed!
Please email us for a chance to meet Misty.
Thank you Chad for fostering Misty!
Boog is an unfortunate product of a divorce and is coming back into the rescue.
You might remember her as Layla; at the time was not good with other female dogs
and was scheduled to be put down by her original owner because of aggression.
Since then she has been living with a family with kids and a cat and did great! Recently she had to spend a week with another female dog and they ended up sleeping together at night!
She is about 2.5 years old and needs another new start!
Please email us for a chance to meet Boog.
Thank you Terry for fostering Boog!
This guy was saved down south in Deming from their shelter. He is about 18
months old, is now fixed and up-to-date on shots. He is good with other
dogs, but has problems meeting them at first. When he approaches, it is
quick and in yur face and then he really just wants to play.
Please email us for a chance to meet TKO.
Thank you Doug and Sheryl for fostering TKO!
This poor guy was picked up by Animal Control back in September. He came
in very sick and underweight and was finally hospitalized at VCA where he it was
determined he had Parvo and Ringworm. Because of his super weet nature,
the wonderful people at VCA nursed him back to health at their own expense and
As his foster dad says, he is very sweet and smart and has learned quickly to sit for his food. He likes his foster sibling, another male, and would make a great family dog!
Please email us for a chance to meet Clyde.
Thank you Doug and Sheryl for fostering Clyde!
He's back! Romeo is a very high energy, loving boy. He loves to give
out hugs all the time and will greet you with good tight grip (but nothing he
shouldn't be doing). He is great with other dogs and needs to have a lot
of energy drained, but he has done very well at home when his foster dada is
To meet up with Romeo, email us.
Thank you Steve for fostering Romeo!
Charlotte was found running around the SE area of the city. She was
finally caught and then decided to jump the fence a few times. Now, she is
foster care with us, spayed amd no longer trying to jump. She is doing
well with the other dogs in her foster home and sometimes gets protective of the
family if a new dog comes into the picture. But, she likes to play and
enjoy the time she has with a family!
Please email us for a chance to meet Charlotte.
Thank you Richard for fostering Charlotte!
Dolly is a 3 year old female who is living with a few other dogs. She has
a hard time when she first meets another dog but does great once she does.
She is not very good with cats though. She was used as a breeder and
escaped, spayed and then left at the shelter because she was no longer producing
pups. (More and better pics coming soon)
If you are interested in giving Dolly a new start, please contact us by email.
Thank you Norma for fostering Dolly!

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!
Bonnie is an older girl (about 6 years old) and was dumped off at the Roswell
shelter. She needs a good home with someone who is patient with her and
will teach her to trust. She is a jumper but it is mostly because she
needs to find some stability.
If you are interested in giving Bonnie a new start, please contact us by email.
Thank you Jo for fostering Bonnie!
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

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!
