Henry has settled into life in Dorset really well, and simply adores the beach!!
He's still learning his manners both on and off the lead, but has a selective memory when it suits him!!
As you can see from the photos, he's quite quite a chunky chap showing some mastiff genes in his size and temperament lol!!
Henry has made a wonderful addition to our family, and we really could not imagine life without him now. Hope you like the photos. Please post this on your happy ever after wall. Thank you.

This handsome boy is Alfie. When he came to us he had significant behavioural issues. Whilst in our care his foster mummy worked with Bark Busters to show Alfie right from wrong. He has recieved the love and support he so much deserved and although he still has work to do, the improvement is quite dramatic
He has now found a fabulous new dad who is prepared to continue the good work started and Alfie is continuing to improve. Alfie's new dad is over the moon with him and has hardly ever had any problems!
3 year old Ty went off to his new home at the end of July and his new family cannot believe their luck! He is impeccably behaved, and follows his dad EVERYWHERE by the sound of it
He has also acquired a new boxer sister, Roxy, who though unsure of sharing her mum and dad to begin with, looks to have settled extremely well in this picture!
"We would like to say, having owned boxer dogs for the last 15 years we were under the misconception that all the rescue dogs would come from homes that had mistreated them, how wrong we were.
Our lovely Ronnie has obviously come from a loving family who have trained him well. We could not be more pleased. He is not only the most handsome boxer we have ever seen, he is so gentle, loving, affectionate, well behaved, does not pull on the lead in fact to use Mary Poppins phrase (practically perfect!)
Many thanks to Boxer Dog Rescue, especially Kirsty and Sharon, Ronnie's foster carer, who we know fell in love with him as much as we did. He is really settled, taken over the settee and all our neighbours and friends love him to bits (he's loving all the attention) we will keep in touch with you all and send more photos."
Laid back Milo went straight off to his new home within hours. Well, when you're this hunky you won't be hanging around for long!
He has a new four legged white sister, Daisy and four new cat friends, who he seems a bit scared of so far! His new mum and dad say he snores like a trooper, and seems to have claimed his space on the sofa already!
Handsome Harry came into rescue in May and went off to his new home shortly after. Sadly it was not meant to be as one of his new family members developed severe allergies triggered by Harry's presence and he had to come back into our care.
Such a strapping gentleman wasn't back with us long before he was sent to his second home where he not only got a new mum and dad but he was also given a new name.
His new mum and dad adore him, and he even has a new poodle brother and sister to play with! As his new brother's name was also Harry they thought it only fair to give him a new name, and chose the rather suiting George!
Hunky Sampson went off to his new home earlier this month and to say his new family are besotted is an understatement!
"We just want to say a big massive huuuuuge thankyou for finding us sampson, from the very first day of having him it felt like we have had him years, it felt so natural. He's settled in amazing straight away, he loves lots of cuddles and those big wet kisses, lol , and loves to play all the time. His favourite places to rest are on our setee, under the dining room table where it is shady and under our daughters bed , he likes to wake her up in the morning with a cuddle and a kiss. She does not stop talking about him, and has allready drawn lots of pictures and paintings of him at school, they are inseperable, her favourite thing at the moment is to give sampson a treat when he sits, or gives his paw, or says please, speak. He's a perfect passenger in the car too, he will often put his paw on eloises lap for comfort. We have also noticed that he likes to sit on your foot. it makes us laugh. We take him on about 4 walks a day which tire him, and afterwards sometimes makes him fall asleep standing up then he often bounces right backfull of energy..lol
Once again i just want to say thank you so much for giving us the oppertunity to have sampson in our lives. We love him so much and will always stay intouch and keep you updated with lots of pictures."
Naz went to his new home earlier in June where he settled right in to his new life with his new family. No accidents or anything, he has been the perfect gent since the day he arrived! But don't just take our word for it, here's the boy himself:
"As you may well see i am a little camera shy . Well what can i say, everyone thinks that i am just adorable and have fallen in love with me. I have settled in fantastically, and I love nothing more than running or should I say, charging though the fields off the lead chasing after the children, then home for a nice long drink and cuddle on the sofa. The children adore me and my new mum says I'm even better behaved than them!!"
Rambo came into us as part of a pair with the lovely Caz (below). Sadly Caz became ill and could not remain in kennels with Rambo so it meant they had to be re homed separately. His new mum says his first week has been very busy and good fun.
Newly christened 'Bambo' is hungry 24/7, toy daft, but a very good boy. He likes to have Mummy and Daddy in at the same time 24/7 ,loves the car, and has started to put on a bit of weight.
He's been to vet and had his first injection and behaved very well. He's not so great with other dogs, which is a pity because he is missing pals that he could play with!
"They are both doing great and have settled right into our family. Buster and Missy are the perfect dogs and are a complete credit to their past owner.
They enjoy their long walks and can now walk to heel. We have been teaching them new tricks, they know; sit, paw, flat, stay, leave it, play dead and stop and wait by the side of the road. Buster has got the hang of fetch but Missy has her own rules about the game (you chasing after her). We are still working on the recall because as soon as they see another dog, person or squirrel they play the deaf card.
Their bald patches have gone and both have found a new love for water, Missy loves to splash through puddles the bigger the better and Buster likes to try and jump in the lake for a swim. We want to thank you for matching Buster and Missy to our family, we find them to be the sweetest natured dogs you could even meet."
His new family say it's as if he has always been there and most of the time he is better behaved than the kids. He loves going out on his lead and does not really pull any more. He still likes to empty the bin to see what he can find!
Shiny Louie went off to his new home in April and has a new sister, Saffy, to play with who keeps him very busy. Louie is full of bounce and life, he has been racing with his new family every weekend and loves travelling and all the attention from the fellow racers. He even gets to help out at his new dads work!
This is the characterful and gorgeous Caz, who came to us with her brother Rambo. We were not able to find them a home together but they have both found wonderful forever homes. We were delighted when Miss Caz sent us this note!
Hello Boxer Rescue, it's Caz. Thanks for all your help and finding me a new home. I have a new sister, Lita, she mothers me and is always licking my slobber keeping me clean. I don't mind cos she lets me share her bed! My new mum and dad love me very much, but make me stop chasing rabbits over the field! They're taking me on a big boat in August on the Norfolk Broads for a week!! Mum said I can't jump in the water (but I think I will ha ha!). My new nanny Sylvia loves me, but says I got a dopey face. That's ok as I just cover her in in dog hairs when she has her black pants on ha ha!
Thank you again Claire and all the lovely people at BDRNE. I'm glad to see my Rambo has a new home!
Love you all
Poppy was originally re-homed via the rescue during the Summer of 2007. In March this year Poppy was picked up by the dog warden after she strayed and we were contacted from the details held on her microchip. Poppy's family were unable to collect her and pay the pound fee so she came back to us to prevent her from being put to sleep.
Poppy does have some skin problems which appear to have been made worse by her straying. She now has a new mum and dad who have taken it all in their stride and are besotted with her:
"She has settled in so well, she is the best dog ever!! She loves to sleep, but we have been taking her for long walks in the fields and she is getting fitter by the day. She is such a happy girl who absolutely loves her cuddles, she is such a softy. She is very nosey, she likes to have a good look in the bread cupboard- doesn't eat it, just likes the smell. Such a character.
Her skin has been bothering her a little bit but nothing major, she likes having a good scratch but she gets told off and she has become sneaky now trying to do it without us knowing the little monkey. She has become our little girl and we can't imagine life without her. I'm glad that we could give her a forever home."
Stella recieved a new name - Bobbi - when she went to her new home in March and according to her new mum:
she has settled in very well and is great companion. She is a very affectionate dog and has bundles of energy. She is very partial to a run on the beach!! She loves attention and the odd Sunday morning lie in on our bed!!! She takes up most room as she finds it her right to get in between us and push us out!!
Socs has settled in well in her new forever home and loves nothing more than waking her new 4 year old best friend on school mornings with a big sloppy boxer kiss on her toes. She loves home comforts and has been known to snuggle on the settee when you go out of the room. She is very affectionate and loves cuddles. Her favourite pastime at the minute is playing football with the boys and chasing her ball on the field. Thank you so much to everyone at BDRNE.
Billie who is now Milly came into rescue when her family emigrated and couldnt take her with them. She arrived after a long transport run, to a foster home where she knew nobody and behaved impeccably she has a lovely nature.
Her new family love her to bits and say it feels as if shes always been with them! Here she is listening to her tunes
This is the gorgeous Lilli she was only five months old when she came to us. This is what her new family have to say!!!
We are definately in a Lilli bubble of joy.
She is an absolute darling and has definately found her forever home. She has settled in so well and its like she has always been here with us. She seems to adore the mad comings & goings of our house, loves the children and her & Tom have been great together.
We are so in love with her and she is so clever (and food orientated) so the training will come on in leaps & bounds.
Thank you for everything and for letting us home such a special little girl.
This gorgeous girl is Diva she was not well when she arrived her time in the pound was up and she was very underweight after having been picked up as a stray. Now she is a princess, not just a diva.
This is what her new mum said about her:
Just an update on Diva for you, yep we have kept her name and she is definitely living up to it ha ha! Her favourite place is in front of the wood burning stove in the kitchen. I make a fire every day and she absolutely loves the warm. One day she actually sat on the hearth with her 2 front paws on the floor and her bum on the hearth!
