Lone Star Boxer Rescue
Adopt A Boxer
 Ace is a two-year-old boxer boy who is friendly and very vocal. He's not a barker, but loves to "chat" in a growly boxer voice at every opportunity! Ace is big and can be rambunctious if excited, so he'll do best in a home with an experienced owner and no small children. He's very smart and obedient, has mastered all of his basic commands, is perfectly leash-trained, and can even potty on command! He is well-behaved indoors, crate-trained, and has not displayed any destructive or mischievous behaviors around the house or in his crate. He is heartworm positive but asymptomatic, and has been receiving treatment for nine months. His current foster parent is willing to work with you fully to help Ace transition into his loving forever home. He's a joy to be around and will make a wonderful addition to your family. To learn more about Ace, contact us today!

Having a Baby?
How to introduce your new baby to your family pet. 

I am often asked about dogs and children sharing household space, along with the age-old question, "How do we introduce our dog to our new baby?" The answer I always give is, "It depends on your relationship with your pet".

Dogs and people are about RELATIONSHIPS, in which the human is the leader and the dog starts as an unskilled follower. Once you have clarified these roles, you then grow into a superior/subordinate partnership with more freedoms and privileges being earned by the dog along the way as he develops the needed skills. At this point, getting dogs to be successful in and around babies or children or any other new, unfamiliar or stressful situation becomes the benefit.  Click here to read more....

LSBR Bonita-Belle Rescues Her New Owner
Charlotte L. Lampe (adopter)

    Three years ago we brought home our LSRBoxer we named Belle- shortly after I moved into a new showroom for my business - early one afternoon a young man came in the door - looked around and ask me if I was alone. (I was) Belle was still trying to get use to everyone and every new thing and was still very skiddish - but that early afternoon at that moment she came and stood by my side touching my leg and growling the deepest most incredible gutteral sound I have ever heard. I asked how could I help him, he asked if "that dog would bite". Ireplied I didn't have a leash on her so perhaps he should stay there. After a short (felt like an eternity) time he said he should probably go. Belle never barked, just one deep continuous growl, she never left my side and as he slid out the door Belle slowly went to the door - I ran to the back got the keys and locked the door.  It has been 3 years since that day - I have never heard that growl since - but she KNEW trouble. I was so grateful to have Belle that day and EVERY day since. I know this is a long response. I want you all to know what you all do is so important - YOU ALL SAVED MY LIFE THAT DAY - you gave me an angel and a soulmate....Bonita now Belle
