Adoption Standards

Thank you for considering adopting a rescued Boxer!  Adopting a dog of any breed is a very big decision, and one that should be agreed upon by the entire family.  Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue has many wonderful Boxers available for adoption. Some of them have had particulary hard lives thus far, so we ask that you be certain before filling out an application to adopt,  that you have the time, energy and financial means to care for a Boxer long term (please see our Boxer Breed Info Link).  It is our intention to place these dogs in their "forever homes".  They have been through quite a bit and deserve to find that permanent home of their own, where they will be cherished.   Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue's adoption fee is between $250 & $350, unless otherwise noted.  All of our Boxers are spay/neutered, vaccinated, have had a HW test, fecal and deworming, as well as treated for any injuries or illnesses prior to adoption.   Puppies  are current on vaccines appropriate for their age.   All of our Boxers are on heartworm prevention.   If you would like to submit an Adoption Application, you may do so by using the link below.  Please allow our volunteers up to two weeks to process your application, and we will be in touch with you.  However, if you have not received a reply within 2 weeks, feel free to contact us.

The adoption fee required to adopt a rescued Boxer is considered a donation, as we are strictly non-profit.  Adoption donations are NON-REFUNDABLE, as the donations are immediately used to pay vet bills.  


All of our rescued Boxers are temperament tested to evaluate how they react to different situations and environments.  They are tested with other dogs, cats (when possible) as well as children.
