Murphy

Murphy is an 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.

Minnie

My name is Minnie. I came into the shelter with Mickey. Our family had to leave us at the shelter and we were all sad but at least Mickey and I had each other. I know that a nice family will come for me. I am very good looking and have nice manners. I like people including the little ones. I love cuddling and we both like car rides. I know how to sit and fetch and walk on a leash. I always tell our foster mom if I need to go outside to potty. I am darn near perfect so there has to be a family out there wanting me. Here I am and ready to go our forever home with you. I am being fostered by Brittany and Brandon. Signed, Minnie

Sid

Hello my name is Sid. Don’t let this gray face fool you, I think I am still two years old even though I am really eight! I really want an owner who is active because I love to jog and go on doggie play dates with little dogs, big dogs and even puppies! My foster mom says I am a ladies man, because whenever I see a girl I get so excited and I start strutting my stuff and trying to get them to love me!!! I get along great with children and they seem to love to pet me too!

I would do best with a fenced in yard to play in and I would love a 4 legged brother or sister of any age/size to play with! I walk well on a leash, and I am learning my doggy manners! My little stub of a tail is always wagging and I love to be near people, in fact I follow my foster dad around the house when he is home and wait for belly rubs! I know how to sit and shake and I am learning other commands too!! Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks! I am being fostered by Mickey in Tallahassee, FL.

Winnie

Winnie was well loved and well trained by her former owner who had to give her up. She has transitioned beautifully and has a great temperament. She plays well with her foster mom's other dog and she is good with being crated though not destructive at all if left alone and uncrated. Although not a youngster, Winnie has retained her playful, inquisitive puppy nature and makes her foster mom laugh a lot. Winnie sits for her food dish and also sits at the door for her leash to be attached for a walk. She walks right with you....no pulling at the leash, no lunging at cats, other dogs, or other people. While she doesn't bark at them, Winnie keeps a wary eye on people encountered on a walk and takes a watchful stance if they start to approach. She doesn't bark in the house unless it is something significant, such as someone entering the yard.

Winnie is 6-7 years old and weighs about 60 lbs. She is housebroken and does well with dogs, cats and children. She does not get on furniture unless invited and respects personal space. Overall, she is just a perfect little lady, who would fit in any home. Winnie is quite accomplished at the "boxer wiggle dance" and does it with great joy for every return home by her foster mom. According to her foster mom, whoever adopts this dog will get the "best dog ever!" Winnie is being fostered by Elaine in Jacksonville, FL.

Maria

This sweet boxer blend female had a rough life until she was brought into the BARC program. She gave birth to seven puppies in someone's backyard and they were not being cared for. Luckily, animal control was notified and they were removed and taken to the shelter where a concerned citizen notified BARC. Of course, we had to help! Maria and all of her puppies are now safe, cared for and loved. Please check back for updates on this sweet little family. Maria is being fostered by Amber.

You may notice the Von Trapp family theme (from The Sound of Music) - very fitting for this lovely family!

Update: Maria is a wonderful lady. She is well behaved and very gentle. She does great on walks and in the car - favoring looking out the back window. She enjoys playing and she would be perfect for someone wanting a companion - someone who is home most of the time. Maria sleeps in her crate at night with no accidents. She sits in the yard and watches the birds and squirrels at the feeders and doesn't chase them or the stray cats that sometimes wander into the yard. We think she would do well with other pets, since on occasion, dogs and cats have been in the rooms when she went through and she had no problem with greeting them.

Dooley

Hi! I'm Dooley and I'm looking for a forever home. My foster home is in Gainesville, but they can't keep me forever; can you? I know that I'm a big dog, but that doesn't mean that I'm not a lapdog. Nothing makes me happier than curling up with someone and watching the television; or reading a book; or playing a game on the computer. Actually, I'll do anything as long as it's with someone who loves me.

Other dogs are A-Okay with me, but I haven't been around cats much; I would try to be friends with them, though, if you are willing to help me figure out that they're supposed to be my friends.

Although I'm only seven, I've been through a lot; I have a bit of a limp from an old injury, but it doesn't slow me down at all. I especially love water! I like to swim in it, jump in puddles and play with the hose. I also love to fetch, so maybe my new home will have a Frisbee or tennis ball!

Sonya

It’s hard to believe this perfect little girl had such a tough start in life. Sonya lived in a cage at a puppy mill. But no more breeding for this little beauty, she is learning to live the life of luxury.

Sonya is very eager to please and likes to show off all of her new skills like “sit” and “stay.” After a morning of hard play in the yard, she goes into her crate, all on her own, and takes a nap on her pillow with the door open. She tucks herself in at night too, when she is ready to go to sleep.

When Sonya wakes up in the morning she is so happy to see her humans, she does the kidney-bean walk all over the house. She likes her toys and is very gentle with them. She does not chew on anything that does not belong to her.

Sonya is wonderful with children, and because she is on the smallish side she does not knock over the little ones! She is good with other dogs also. She is shy with adults when she first meets them, but it really does not take long before she is placing her paw in their lap inviting them to pet her.

Because this kind of life is so new to Sonya there are still some things she needs more practice with, like walking on a leash and eating from a bowl not the floor, but she is making progress every day.

Sonya is 4 years old and weighs a very petite 34 lbs.; she is housebroken, crate trained, and is learning basic commands. She stands well for a bath and doesn't even mind having her ears cleaned.

Beignet

Beignet's past is a bit of a mystery. She was picked up by animal control as a stray in Georgia and taken to the shelter. Fortunately, that was not to be the end of Beignet. A boxer lover heard of her situation and bailed her out, hoping to place her with the local boxer rescue. No room could be found for her there, which was when we were contacted, so BARC to the rescue! With the help of family and friends and a couple returning from vacation, Beignet was able to hitch a ride from Georgia, through Alabama and is now happy as a Florida resident.

Each day we wake up to find a dog completely different from the one the day before. Best guess is that she was once a loved pet who was well trained but has forgotten much during her time as a stray. Beignet is the best looking boxer ever. Pictures do not do her justice! Every time Beignet goes out we are constantly approached by people wanting to pet her and tell me how gorgeous she is.

Beignet loves, loves, loves her toys! Chew toys, balls, squeaky toys and ropes, she will even chase a stick. She is a total clown, who is more entertaining to watch than television. In the mornings she loves to chase dragon flies all around the yard. She has not caught one yet but it is so cute to watch her jump, twist & turn, and cut back & forth as she never gives up the chase.

During the time between the shelter and her arrival in Florida, she had a male boxer for a room mate. They played very well together as she did with the child in that home. More than her toys even, she loves her humans and is very, very affectionate.

Lest you think she is too good to be true, she is not (yet!) perfect. She seems to believe that meals eaten in the living room are fair game for her also, so beware! With that said, she does seem to prefer expensive coffee, cheap white wine, and likes her humus on the spicy side. Just sayin'. LOL

Beignet is 1-2 years old and weighs 46 lbs.; she is housebroken, crate trained, walks well on a leash and knows some basic commands. She does well with other dogs and children, but cats are an unknown.
