"A dog has one aim in life... to bestow his heart." -J.R. Ackerly

Murphy

Murphy is a nine year old boxer blend whose owner passed away and the family couldn't keep him. He absolutely loves balls and is a real athlete! He is compatible with most any dog and is your typical velcro Boxer guy.

Murphy has a special need and he would do best in a home that has indoor/outdoor access with a securely fenced yard. He has an irritable bowel that causes him to need to go outside more often than most dogs. He is great at making use of the dog door that was put in for him. Murphy is very housebroken, but when he needs to go, he needs to go! His sweet loving disposition will more than make up for the little extra care he needs. Murphy has been with BARC for almost five years waiting for his home because he is special needs. If your situation fits him, there is no better dog. He's a swimmer too- just check out his video! Murphy is being fostered by Trudy in Jacksonville, FL.

Rhett Butler

Rhett Butler is a dashing 7 year old male who loves to play fetch with Frisbees and play tug-of-war. He loves attention enjoys cuddling on the couch. Rhett is calm, but when excited can play a little rough.

Rhett weighs 68 lbs. and is (mostly) housebroken, crate trained and walks well on a leash. He does great with large and small dogs and even likes cats. He loves children, but we think he would do best in a home with a little older children (not toddlers) due to his size and spunk.

Gramps

Gramps is 12 years old but you'd never know it. This cutie is very spry and doesn't act his age at all - in fact, when his foster mom gets home, he gets so excited that he runs around the house like crazy and runs laps around the backyard like a race horse! He is a gentle soul and so sweet. He gets along great with the other dogs in the house, large and small. Gramps is one of those special senior dogs that is wonderful to have in the house.

Olaf

Yes, he's a boxer! No, he's not a snowman! We promise! Still, Olaf is the perfect name for this 6 year old boxer as he is just so chill (brrrrr).

Easy going and laid back, Olaf chooses to lay on the rug by his people rather than get on the furniture. Olaf is very happy with his foster family. He gets along well and plays great with the other dogs and with the kids too. Often independent, he will play by himself, running around and throwing his toys up in the air! When Olaf came to BARC he needed to gain some weight, he is now up to 55 lbs, but could still use a few more. Olaf loves to go for rides, he will jump right in when the car door is opened, but knows to always stay in the back seat.

Olaf is such a good boy his foster mommy says he can stay as long as he'd like. But what Olaf would really like would be a family of his own. If this adorable squishy face is making your heart melt faster than snow, fill out an on-line adoption application today. Olaf is being fostered by Shannon in Jacksonville.

Gus

Gus is very sweet and well mannered. He is calm, but loves when friends come to visit. He enjoys snuggling and playing and is very gentle and tolerant with children. He can be left alone without getting into mischief, but make sure the trash is secure! Gus is looking to be the top dog in a one-pet home. Gus is 5 years old and weighs 80 lbs.; he is housebroken, crate trained and knows basic commands. He needs a little training to master the leash, but we are working on that! If you would like more information on this handsome boy, please complete our online adoption application today. Gus is being fostered by Jennifer in Pace, FL.

Buzz Lightyear

Buzz is a very spunky guy who does not know how old he is. He will come inside, play hard and then nap hard. He is a lover and wants to be wherever you are at all times. He plays with his foster brothers (four legged and two legged) quite regularly. Buzz loves to go for walks and enjoys car rides too. He is waiting patiently for a family that will love him, spoil him rotten and care for him as one of their own.

Buzz is 9-10 years old and weighs 58 lbs. He is housebroken, crate trained and walks well on a leash. He is good with other dogs and great with kids. If you would like more information, please complete our online adoption application today. Buzz is being fostered by Amber.

McCoy

Note: McCoy is on a medical hold and applications are not being accepted for him at this time.

Good boy McCoy! This pretty boy is a gentle soul, with great kindness. He is quiet and calm and very well mannered. McCoy enjoys lounging on his dog bed, eating treats and hanging with the family relaxing. He really enjoys attention and gives hugs as if to say "thanks!" McCoy also enjoys car rides and walks. He is an excellent companion and such a great boy to have around - his foster family will be sad to see him go, but very happy for his forever family!

McCoy came to us heartworm positive. We see this a lot in rescue, but he had a severe case and subsequent kidney damage. It's likely he'll need lifelong medication to keep his blood pressure in check. An adopter needs to know that his medication regimen will cost around $100/mo. He will also need to be on a low protein/salt diet for life as well. A naturally "chill" personality, we're thinking it's because he knows he was rescued and finally getting the care he's deserved.

McCoy is 3 years old and currently weighs 60 lbs., but does need to put on some weight (about 10 lbs.). He is housebroken (needs a little attention at night, though), crate trained, walks well on a leash and knows a few basic commands. He is great with the other dogs in the house, large and small and good with kids. If you would like more information on McCoy, please complete our online adoption application today. He is being fostered by Shae and Daniel in Jacksonville, FL.

**Featured*** Huckleberry Finn

If you are looking for a running buddy or even a walking buddy then Huck is for you! He currently runs 3 to 5 miles with his skin sister and he loves it! While out and about he makes friends with everyone he meets. Afterwords, he is ready to cuddle up for a nice long nap, preferably on your lap! Huck is a gorgeous (those eyes, wow!), confident, intelligent dog with all the qualities that make an exemplary boxer blend best friend. He loves playing with his toys and with the 4 other pups in his foster home. A total clown, he loves to hijack the ball in a game of fetch to get all of the other dogs to chase him around the yard. His labrador buddy has convinced him to wade into the water, but he is still getting up his nerve to take the plunge and swim.

Huck is not quite 2 years old and weighs 48 lbs.; he is housebroken, crate trained, walks well on a leash and knows basic commands. Huck is good with other dogs and children, but no kitties, please. If you would like more information on this sweet youngster, please complete our online adoption application today. Huck is being fostered by Erin in Jacksonville, FL

Chipper

Chipper is just an all-around good boy. He likes to spend hours every day playing outdoors. He tosses his toys up in the air then runs around the yard with them. He'd like to go for a walk with you, he does well on his leash. Chipper gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home, but children and cats are an unknown.

Chipper is approximately 6 years old and house-trained. He is not rambunctious or destructive indoors, so he is not crated while home alone.

Rookie

Rookie seems to have had a tough life before coming into BARC. He is unsure how to act but responds well to calm, steady leadership. He is very calm for his age and really wants to please. He doesn't know what toys are for, but is loving, likes to give kisses and will sit in front of you for a good petting session. Rookie enjoys car rides too!

Rookie is 2 years old and weighs 52 lbs.; he is housebroken, crate trained and knows some basic commands. He is unsure of himself when meeting new dogs, but would do well in a home with a settled, mature companion dog as well as older children. If you would like more information on this pretty boy, please complete an online adoption application today. Rookie is being fostered by Chuck and Judy.

Update 3/29

Rookie is not a rookie any longer. Thanks to the love and direction of his foster family he is going pro. Here is a note from his foster dad telling of his big adventure yesterday.

Rookie went to the Bark For Life cancer fundraiser today. I was extremely pleased with his behavior and demeanor especially considering the fearful defensive boy that first came to our house. His "boxer" pride and confidence is obvious immediately by his high head position and his eye contact he previously avoided. He was as gentle as lamb with a 3 year old girl who was very touchy and curious especially of his small tail. I wouldn't have liked her playing with my tail, but Rookie just laid there and never even gave her a disapproving look. Being around an event with lots of people and dogs he was nervous at first, but relaxed more and more with time and reassurance he was OK. He remained attentive to any commands given and was praised and given treats as reward for this. He even gave another young boy a hug. He is still protective of his space when it comes to dogs he is not familiar with, especially small dogs. Even though this behavior exists he is not as focused on this as he once was, he listens "MUCH" better to stern but not excited instructions. At home he has learned to play with his toys and destroy them if he wants. This is a change due to the fact if he was carrying a toy before and you spoke to him in any way he would drop it and lay down on his back as if he was doing some thing wrong. He now only drops his toy If he hears the command "drop it". He is also getting better about the command "leave it" by not even bothering whatever it is, even another dog. His recall and command of "come" is going great. I would put his response to this command at 90%. He now has a goofy, boxer personality' He is also very smart and learns easily. Now that he realizes not all his actions are wrong.

Jedi

Jedi LOVES to snuggle and will curl up as close to you as possible and bury his head in and fall asleep. He also loves a good face massage and will just about go into a trance! He wants nothing more than to have his own person to curl up with - he will make a very loyal companion. Jedi will follow you everywhere, staying close by your side.

He seems to know the phrase "bye bye" and gives the cutest head tilt and perks his ears forward when he hears it. Jedi comes when called, since he doesn't want to miss what might be going on while he is out of sight. He jumps really high when playing and has a lot of energy, so he would be perfect for an active family or as a jogging partner.

Jedi is 4-5 years old boxer blend and weighs about 60 lbs. He is housebroken, crate trained (doesn't really like it) and walks relatively well on a leash. If you would like more information on Jedi, please complete our online adoption application today. He is being fostered by Denice in Jacksonville, FL.

Miss Bonnie

Of all of the Boxers we have known, Miss Bonnie may very well be the wiggliest! She loves people and is clearly hungry for attention and affection. A simple kind word, look, or gesture and she lights up. Bonnie loves to run around the yard and box with her foster brother but she can not play fetch with a ball. Bonnie has a condition which keeps her from opening her mouth very wide, but after some conditioning she can now gobble her kibble as quickly as the other pups. Bonnie would be just as happy to skip the playtime and lounge around the house with you. She will lay her head on your shoulder to entice you to cuddle with her.

Mellow and mild mannered, Bonnie never needs to be crated while home alone. She is completely trustworthy. If this 7 - 9 year old, petite squishy face is squishing your heart, please fill out an adoption application today. She is being fostered by Erin in Jacksonville, FL.

Baylee

According to her foster mom, Baylee is super calm, a great dog and a complete sweetie. She is good with kids, other dogs and even the three cats she is currently living with.

At 68 lbs. this 7 year old is a bit over weight, but she is on a diet and it won't be long till she slims down to a healthy weight. She is learning to be motivated by praise instead of food. Sweet potatoes are her favorite healthy treat. Baylee is housebroken, uses a doggie door and crate trained but does not require a crate. Left alone in the home she has not scratched or chewed a single thing. Baylee is being fostered by Abby in Pensacola, FL.

Whitney likes to play with the other dogs in the house, but is very independent and also likes to spend time alone. She would do fine being an only dog or in a home with other pups.

This pretty 4 year old, 60 lb. boxer is such a good girl. Low maintenance and trustworthy, Whitney gets to have the run of the place when her foster dad is away from home and never needs to be crated. She loves her foster dad and follows him from room to room.

He is doing great in his foster home, following his foster mom from room to room and cuddling with her at nap time. He loves playing with his boxer sister and is nice to the kitties also.

This 8 - 9 year old boxer boy is so smart, he knows what time his foster mom gets home from work and is waiting by the window to greet her each day. He is house-trained and is not crated while home alone as he is perfectly trustworthy. He loves to go for walks on his leash. Always alert, Gable will let you know whenever anyone else in his home area.

Chelsea

Chelsea is a small Boxer girl who will probably have a healthy weight of no more than 45 pounds. While she does have some graying on her muzzle (only makes her dignified looking!) and probably some arthritis, her teeth indicate a fairly young dog, around 5 years of age. She is rebounding from near-starvation rapidly and seems very happy with her new situation. She gets along well with the two resident male Boxers in her foster family and has shown little interest in the cat. At Christmas time, she was surrounded by children and although she had only been there a few short days, she handled the chaos well. She is friendly, very sweet and anxious to please. She has caught on well to her foster family's expectations and "pack rules" and seems only to want comfort, food and affection. Not necessarily in that order-start with food!

Chelsea is being fostered by Trula in Tallahassee, FL.

Danielle

It doesn't get much better than Danielle. Although she has spent her entire life so far producing puppies for a breeder, she is as friendly as they come, both with people and other dogs. She is playful and affectionate, but has a calm demeanor overall.

Danielle is 6 years old and weighs 63 lbs. She is crate trained, housebroken and walks very well on a leash. Although there are no children in her foster home, there is no doubt she would be great with them. The ideal home for Dani, would be one where there is someone home all day, so that she wouldn't have to spend any more time being confined and alone.

Dani is not familiar with toys and needs to be taught basic commands (she has learned sit and we are now working on stay); she learned how to go out the doggy door very quickly. If you would like more information on this gorgeous girl, please complete our online adoption application today. Danielle is being fostered by Diana in Tallahassee, FL.

Kiwi

What is better to find in an Easter basket than a solid milk chocolate bunny? Why a Kiwi, of course! 40 lbs. of pure sweet love! She won't melt and she won't make you gain weight. Maybe even the opposite, as she really likes to go for walks and is so good on a leash.

This smart, playful and loving 3 year old Boxer girl just recently arrived at her BARC foster home, but she is fast fitting in. She is 100% house trained plus knows how to sit and stay. She loves to cuddle and nap with her boxer foster brother Cruise, but we don't know how she is with kitties as her foster parents are dog people, as you might expect.

What Kiwi really wants for Easter is a family of her own. So if you are finding it hard to resist her puppy eyes and her wiggle butt, fill out an adoption application today.

Meat is a very active, goofy and lovable 4 year old boy. He enjoys playing outside chasing butterflies, bees and dragonflies. One of his favorite hobbies is to run around the backyard and chase the shadows of birds who fly overhead. He's like a big kid in a dogs body. He will eagerly go for long walks or runs on the leash but sometimes needs to be reminded to stay calm and not get ahead of you. He is awesome with children and will snuggle up with them at night. He may be close to 90 pounds but thinks he's a tiny lap-dog who sees no problem snuggling up on your lap while you watch TV on the couch. Meat is intrigued by light reflections and shadows and will try to catch them if he sees them in the house. He just loves to play. He also likes to talk and will be very vocal with you when he is excited, happy or wants to get your attention.
