8 year old Sasha is looking for her forever home. Her previous owners didn’t want the responsibility of caring for her as well as their children, so she was handed in to kennels and is now in foster care with BDRNE.
She has been assessed, dog tested and child tested and she is a lovely, calm, friendly girl. She seems well socialised and happy to be in the company of other dogs, even sitting patiently next to them when waiting for treats! She seems to know her basic commands and will sit and give a paw when asked. She walks well on lead with just normal pulling to sniff areas, but no excessive pulling.
Sasha has a lovely temperament with a sweet nature and is a pleasure to be around. If you think you can give her a loving forever home, please complete our online application
This gorgeous little girl is called Treacle and she’s 16 months old. She is coming into our care due to a marriage breakdown and needs a very special home due to having a potentially life-shortening medical condition. Here’s what her owner says:
“Treacle is a very loving and bouncy dog who loves going for walks with the children and a ball and loves to swim. She does pull a little on the lead but will come to heel if told. Her ball is her treat and we take it on every walk and she loves to fetch sticks too. She will be re-called even if she has gone some distance from you. She is dog friendly but can sometimes be a little too excitable for other dogs who aren’t used to Boxers’ exuberance. She jumps up at people if they show her fuss but she has never been aggressive to any other dog, person, child or animal.
At home she has lived with two small children and a white bunny. She is very bouncy and wants to play with the bunny but has never hurt her. She is good with cats as long as they don't run! She will chase them but only to play. She has chased sheep (but again only to play not to hurt them) and is very friendly with the local cows. She is not possessive of her food bowl or bedding and is extremely tolerant of the children, often sharing her bed with them.
At home she sleeps down stairs in the kitchen, on her own through the night. She was crate-trained as a puppy but she hasn’t used it for about 11 months. She loves to play with the children and will often lick them to death and nibble their ears!. She doesn’t bark at all, not even at strangers coming into the house, and instead wants attention and fuss - all the bin men and post men come to say hello! She is well toilet trained and will stand at the back door to let you know she wants to go. She knows basic commands and will sit, stay, lay, jump up, jump down, and roll over for a piece of fresh meat. She is an amazing family dog with a brilliant temperament, loving and entertaining.”
Shortly after Treacle was born she had to be treated for multiple organ failure. Against the odds she made a full recovery but it has resulted in an enlarged kidney which doesn’t function properly. She currently lives a normal, fully active life but it is very likely that her condition will eventually shorten her life. We are looking for a special forever family who can give Treacle a normal, active and fun-filled life while she is able to enjoy it and who can provide the loving care and attention that she will eventually need. Boxer Dog Rescue Northern England will be here to support Treacle and her new family every step of the way and we will, of course, assist with vet treatment relating to her medical condition.

This handsome silver chops is 9 year old Lennox and he’s coming into our care due to the imminent arrival of a new baby.
His owner tells us he has a lovely temperament, loves being with people and other dogs and is good with children, although he hasn’t lived with children. He’s not keen on cats and will chase them if he sees them.
Lennox loves to play ball games and enjoys tug of war too, but he particularly loves tennis balls and squeaky toys! He knows his basic commands, is house trained and is not destructive when left alone.
Lennox is looking for a forever home where he can enjoy some home comforts in his final years and where he can get all the love and attention he deserves. If you can give Lennox a loving forever home please complete our online application
9 year old Bonnie is a lovely natured girl who is young at heart. She loves cuddles and will lick you to death if you let her! She is good with dogs and kids, but not cats. She would benefit from some basic training as she pulls on the lead and isn’t great at recall. She does get a little anxious when left alone but she soon settles. She guards the house well by barking at people going past, but she welcomes anyone coming into the house in true Boxer fashion – wiggly bum and face licks!
Bonnie is currently in foster with 2 resident dogs and we’re looking for a forever home where she can continue to enjoy canine company. If you think you can offer her a loving forever home please complete our online application
This is Shankly and he is 6 years old. He is a loving and generally well behaved dog, responsive to commands and not destructive when left. He can display guarding behaviour but responds well to correction. He will also pull to other dogs and bark at them when out walking but again will respond to firm correction. He is able to interact with other dogs if the introductions are managed correctly and is currently sharing a kennel with another boxer. Shankly needs a dog and child free home with an experienced owner – if you feel you could give Shankly the forever home that he’s looking for, you will be well rewarded as he really is a loveable boy
This is 5 year old Molly and she’s a very large, very strong, very friendly and very typical boxer! She’s a bouncy, playful girl who loves balls and toys and wants to be involved in everything that’s going on! She needs some training to walk well on the lead and she’s currently learning to walk calmly using a canny collar. She loves her walks but hasn’t been getting the exercise she needs, so it’s likely her excitable nature will calm a little once she starts a regular exercise regime.
Molly is dog friendly but she hasn’t been allowed to associate with many dogs in her life so she would benefit from some socialisation training. She loves human company and will do anything to stay close to you so we’re looking for a forever home where she won’t be left for long periods and where she’ll get the exercise and stimulation she needs.
Molly is a confident girl with a biddable nature and a real pleasure to be around. If you think you can offer her a forever home please complete our online application
At 11 years of age, Keeley really is a Golden Oldie! She is a beautiful, well mannered and well behaved girl who loves attention and can be very playful. She is very gentle towards children and plays well with them and is a quiet dog who only really ever barks at the postman or at cats that come into her garden! She will let you know when she wants to go to the toilet and she loves going for walks, but she does pull on the lead.
In her younger days, Keeley used to enjoy playing catch, but she can now get sore and stiff in her back and hips, so calmer exercise is advised. She has not been properly socialised with other dogs so doesn’t really know how to behave around them, so would benefit from some socialisation training.
Keeley is coming into our care because her family are moving abroad and can’t take her with them. She is currently left home alone for up to 9 hours a day, so she is looking for a home where she can enjoy a lot of human company in her final years. If you think you can offer Keeley a loving forever home, please complete our application to adopt
