Meet our foster Baxter! Looking for his FURever home

Baxter...what is not to love

Baxter…what is not to love

My name is Baxter! I am a 2 year old puppy. I came to BRBR via owner surrender.  I was surrendered because the people who had me had too many pets.  I was neutered and very skinny.  I was not on monthly heart worm medicine so I am heart worm positive.  It really does not slow me down at all.  I am starting treatment in March.

I am currently living with my foster family in Raleigh, NC.  They are really nice people.  I share my house with two skin kids ( pre-teen and teen) and two boxers Potter and Lucy. We all get along great and I love them all very much. They would keep me but they really need to keep a spot open in their house to foster dogs like me. My foster parents cannot believe how well behaved I am for only being 2 years  old. I love to play with my FURsiblings but I am also content laying on the bed beside my Foster mom and dad as they work.  I am crate trained and typically sleep in there at night time.  I also like to sleep in my skin sisters  room.  I need to see one of my people.

cozy on the bed!

I am a really handsome fella.  The humans always comment on how good looking I am.  I am tall and lean.  My insides are full of springs. I can bound up really high when I get excited but I know not to jump on my people.  I just tall enough my nose can smell all the good stuff on the kitchen counters.  My people put stuff up there to tease me.  I like to steal stuff every once in a while.  I learned it from my fursister Lucy. She is always in trouble.  I also love toys and balls.

Snow...lets play!

Snow…lets play!

My people don’t allow me on the furniture and I am only allowed on the bed if you invite me.  I am good at following the rules.  I am a great dog!  I would love to meet you!


I am good on a leash and like walks

I come running when I hear ice going into a cup.  My mom gives me a cube every time

100% potty trained, I have not learned to lift my leg yet

I am doggie door trained

I am not a fence darter…

I love my people invite me on the bed.  When they want me off I box them…I am a boxer J

Our neighbors have chickens…I ignore them

I love all people and get excited when they come to visit

I love being with my FURsiblings…they teach me how to act and keep me straight

I love running, chasing, and chewing on my FURsiblings.  They put up with me!

I am adorable! Please consider if you have a FUREVER home for me.  Much love Baxter!


I am available via Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue.  Adoptable in NC, SC, VA.

Celebration & Thanks…Reflections from Allee’s “FUR”ever Family

Our family has been volunteering with Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue for almost two years.  While it is not always easy, the joys seem to always out shine the heartaches.


Sweet Allee

Earlier this week, I received the most sincere and  heartfelt update from a former adopter, Rebecca Z, reflecting on their year with Allee.  Her update brought tears of joy to my eyes.  Rebecca and Hector are wonderful people and have provided Allee with the loving and supportive environment that she needed.  Allee’s transition was not easy but they never gave up on her!

Allee Update from Rebecca

With Memorial Day Weekend here and gone I am reminded of how we spent last Memorial Day weekend…a Saturday morning drive to Greensboro to pick up a sweet boxer named Allee for a “trial week or so” in our home, a Saturday (and Sunday) filled with rotations with Allee and resident dog Tango and feeling like those rotations would NEVER end, a girl who disliked her crate so much that she broke out of it twice on the first day. Let’s face it, a “trial” visit to our home was never going to happen…only a permanent move was in this precious girl’s future.

Here we are, a year later, more and more attached to our beloved Allee every day. We’ve had our fair share of struggles. Hector, Tango and I have each been victim to Allee’s quick bite and sharp teeth. Last year’s 4th of July was in the midst of Allee’s quarantine for biting a neighbor. Allee sometimes still has difficulty when we come across other dogs on walks, but going ona walk is one of her favorite things to do. The daily highlights far outnumber the struggles we’ve had in our first year as a family.  Allee is…a dog who can’t wait to be allowed on our bed each morning after her trip outside and a delicious breakfast; a best friend to our 3 year old male Tango; a (mostly) laid back sweet girl who just wants to please you and be by her owner’s side; a silly girl who doesn’t so much do the boxer bean, but rather jumps up and down on all 4 legs when you get home. But most of all (to us at least) Allee is a Zambrana for life.

Thank you for all you did for our beloved Allee and for all you continue to do for the countless boxers you help each day!


THANK YOU Rebecca and Hector for giving Allee the second chance in life that she deserves!  You all are an AMAZING family!
