Boxers in Need of Forever Homes

Meet our loving rescues, who need a new family, here at Boxer Rescue of Albuquerque. We serve clients within New Mexico and occasionally, surrounding states.

Kyra - Will be available soon!  

Here comes Kyra. She is around 2 years old, and is a big bundle of joy and energy in a petite little package. There’s no such thing as personal space when you’re with Kyra. She is constantly looking for your approval and acceptance and will be there by your side, ready to spring into action. She is always looking for attention, and on occasion may take a shoe outside to make sure you know that she’s still there and ready to play. But fear not, she will gently relocate your shoe in an easy to find spot when you are looking for it later in the day. If you think you might be interested in Kyra please let us know on our contact us page. If you haven’t filled out an adoption form, please take the time to let us know a little more about you.

Tigger - Has been adopted!  

Here is Tigger. A 2 year old male (not fixed yet but has an appointment for Friday, June 5th, to get neutered, shots and chipped). He was found as a stray and was extremely emaciated. The shelter where he was located put some weight on him to get his to this point. He is currently in a foster home with a child and an older female boxer. Initially, he was fine with their female boxer but now has been aggressive with her and based on her age, we need to find a foster home (or permanent one) asap. Ideally, it would be better for him to be an only dog while he adapts to living with someone again. We are not sure how he is with cats either. He is great on a leash but will bolt out a door and take off if tempted. If you are interested in helping us out, please contact us and give us information about your situation and we will go from there.

Taylor - Has been adopted!

Taylor is approximately 18 months to 2 years old. He is a big boy weighing in at around 70 pounds. Here’s a brief recap of how he came to our rescue from the person that found him:


“I'm writing in hopes you can help. We live out near the NM Zuni/Navajo pueblos where dog abuse and dumping is rampant. So, a couple days ago, while driving to get gas, I came across this fellow. He was in the road, it was snowing and as you can see, he has no meat on his bones. I couldn't stand to leave him to get hit or continue starving so I picked him up. Best intentions....He seems very sweet, not very old, doesn't appear to be unhealthy in other ways and is neutered. I took him by a vet to scan for a chip, no chip of course.


However, I have come to the realization (I'm sure you've heard this before from well doers) that I do not have the time to give him the time and care he'll need to make his journey back to healthy. So, I'm hoping you can provide some help, I know foster homes do not come up frequently.”

Dixie - H​as been adopted and is now Daisy!

Introducing Dixie: a spayed, 4-to-5-year old female. Dixie was left behind at her home, and a very nice person took her in and contacted us. Dixie is now in a foster home but is looking forward to a permanent home where she can be comfortable knowing she will not be abandoned again.


She is staying with other dogs–small dogs and a black Lab. Dixie is not currently up to date on her shots but seems to have been house trained as she will wait by the door to go outside. She definitely likes attention and will get a little jealous when the other dogs get some lovin’.


The foster family is keeping her inside because her face is sunburned from being outside all the time. Obviously, she is white with brindle and one of the brindle spots is shaped like an upside-down heart and another looks kind of like Mickey Mouse. When she does go outside, she isn’t interested in digging and doesn’t jump on anyone. Please email us if you are interested. We want to find her a great home!
