New Beginnings for Boxers at MustLuvBoxers Rescue

Sunny (now Nera)

Sunny (now Nera)

Adopted: 

Kristine and her husband, Salvatore are no strangers to boxers having had two in their family over the past two decades. Their two sons loved their boxers as well and all four of them realized they needed a new furry family member. They found 3-month-old Sunny, a Boxer-mix, and knew she’d fit into their family and be a great addition! In honor of Salvatore being from Italy, they renamed her Nera, which means “black” in Italian.

Nera is enjoying daily long walks and an occasional jog. She also gets some yard playtime with the boys, as well as trips to the dog park, and time with family friends and their canine kids.

Salvatore, Kristine, James, and Alessio, MustLuvBoxers Rescue is thrilled you found your perfect pup in Nera. We know how much you love the breed, and we can’t wait to hear about the many adventures you all take together in the coming years.

Rubble

Rubble

Adopted: 

Brad is retired and was looking for a canine companion. His daughter had recently adopted a boxer from Wigglin Home Boxer Rescue, and he also had a boxer grand-dog that he watched for 12 years, so he really loves the breed. Brad found Rubble and felt he’d be the perfect match!

The two are now inseparable and Rubble gets to enjoy a ½ acre fenced yard to romp around and play in. He’ll be mastering Frisbee catching and ball chasing with Brad. What a lucky pup!!

Brad, MustLuvBoxers Rescue is thrilled you found the perfect furever companion in Rubble. Please keep us updated on the close-to-home adventures you two enjoy together.

Odie

Odie

Adopted: 

Leslie and her 11-year-old boxer, Wrigley, were missing the additional boxer feet running around the house since losing 2 female boxers (both sisters of Wrigley) to lymphoma. Leslie has always had boxers in her life and can’t imagine any other breed being part of her family. After some searching, she found Odie and just knew in her heart that he was the right match for Wrigley. We are betting that Odie and Wrigley will become the best of pals in no time!

Odie is going to have some good times with Leslie going on walks and runs, and even doing some camping and hiking. He also gets his very own kid in Lauren (Leslie’s boyfriend’s daughter). Odie is sure one lucky pup!!

Odie, MustLuvBoxers Rescue is thrilled you found your forever family with Leslie and Wrigley. We look forward to hearing about the enjoyable times you all have together.

Hank

Hank

Adopted: 

Casey, Jenna, and their young daughter Emma, love dogs, and in particular, they love when family members come to visit with their boxers! After a loss of another pet, they needed something to fill the void and since they weren’t ready to adopt, fostering was the path they took. Then along came Hank! We’ll let Jenna tell you the story here…

“As a family, we were looking for ways to get involved and help out where we could. Over the summer, we lost our senior cat who we have had for over 20 years. We have always wanted to help animals in need, and it soon became clear to us that it was the perfect time to get involved.

We have multiple family members with boxers and have been around boxers for years. We love their fun, silly personalities and also how loyal and loving they are. They are such great family dogs! We were excited to join MustLuvBoxers Rescue! In October, Hank came into the rescue and needed a foster home. We were excited to jump in and foster Hank. We slowly worked with him to get comfortable and into a routine. Hank started to flourish and fit into our family absolutely perfectly and we were all so in love with him; he melted our hearts. It seemed as though the feeling was mutual, and Hank really bonded with us and our young daughter.

We are all so grateful and feel extremely blessed to be able to adopt Hank. He will rarely need to be left alone and will get to enjoy daily walks, lots of family playtime, and fun. We're looking forward to, and are very excited about, all the family adventures we will get to experience with Hank, lots of play dates with the other boxers in our family, and continuing to help foster.”

Jenna, Casey, and Emma, we are so happy you found a wigglebutt of your very own in Hank. Thank you for fostering then adopting! We look forward to getting many updates about the fun you all have together.

Rocco (now Rocky)

Rocco (now Rocky)

Adopted: 

Rick and his wife, Sarah, were looking for a boxer to rescue, for them and their young son, Ethan. Rick had boxers growing up and knew they were the perfect family dog. After a web search, they soon spotted 6-month-old Rocco, who is believed to be a boxer-mix, and they felt he’d be an awesome match for their family. They did give him a more distinguished name though – Robert “Rocky” Balboa!! A great name for a great boxer!

Rocky, will rarely be left alone as Rick is a stay-at-home parent, so this boy is going to get plenty of love and attention. Rocky is going to be enjoying daily trips to the local park, neighborhood walks, hiking on trails, swimming, and other seasonal playtime with leaves, snow, puddles, etc! He may even get to be Rick’s new jogging buddy!

Rick, Sarah, and young Ethan, MustLuvBoxers Rescue is so thankful that Robert “Rocky” Balboa entered your life and found his forever home with you. We know he’ll be truly loved. Please keep us updated on Rocky’s new adventures as a member of your family.
