    Im posting this on behalf of a family member
    Female boxer needs to be rehomed!!
    Two year old female boxer needs to be rehomed (even for free to the right home or place)
    she is a brindle female boxer is unspayed and has had a litter of three puppies. She is create trained and house trained. She has dewclaws done, docked tail and natural ears and I think she is up to date on shots. She is very sweet and good with other dogs and children of all ages but can tend to be to excitable for some young kids. she is way to excitable and high energy to live where she is any longer. As they now with one adult male and a male puppy, two young kids and a husband who is away in TX on a job she is just way too much for this family and needs a better home. She needs a better home where she will get a lot of exercise (agility maby?) and love and be properly trained and not kenneled as much. She is good on leash but likes squirrels and is kind of spooky if walked alone. Please give her a perfect home where she no longer she has to live in a kennel (she is kenneled A LOT due to her energy level) or put in the Florida heat of the backyard.

    I know this isn't your dog but I can't help feeling very saddened by your story. So this poor girl had a litter of puppies and while one of the male puppies was kept she has to go?? Please advice your family member to contact a local boxer rescue asap. Do not give her away for free on craigslist or the like, she might end up in a worse situation than she is now. A boxer rescue will screen all applicants and make sure she goes to a good home.

    A rescue (or experienced boxer owner) is probably the best solution for her. Sounds like she is not getting any where near the exercise she needs. I hope they realize they will be in the same place with the pup in a year and let him go to rescue as well.

    I would have a sit down with this family, explain to them they are aiding and contributing to the deaths of millions of pets a year with not spaying/neutering their pets and allowing them to breed - only to give them up. It's really sad! I'd be really angry with them if they were my family. If they are going to give up one of the dogs, no matter which it may be, ALL THE PETS SHOULD BE FIXED IN THAT HOUSE! NO MORE BREEDING SHOULD BE ALLOWED! Especially since they are apparently NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE BOXER BREED WHATSOEVER! These are the dog owners/back yard breeders that should be lawfully refused any pets until they are educated and knowledgeable.

    Maybe take the whole family to the local shelter and show them all the dogs that are looking for homes and how they just send one out the back door because one of their dogs or litters needed that dog's kennel. For every dog that enters a shelter, one goes out the back door in a black plastic bag. There just is no moral or ethical excuse for this. None whatsoever!

    I sure hope they find her a rescue to go to. Otherwise this poor girl will just be swapped into another family, probably to continue to breed her. Such a sad life she will have if not in the proper, caring home who fully is aware of the boxer breeds needs.

    If she goes to a rescue please let us know. BUT if she is just given away to just anyone without caring who or how she will be cared for, then please do NOT post the update. I just can't take another story of another boxer who enters adulthood with no training get tossed out like garbage because of stupid, ignorant owners! My heart just can't take anymore!

    The male puppy is one of her own litter...& I agree with you on all of it and was mad that they even breed them as neather are health tested and only the male is papered 5 generation akc.The female they got from a friend who picked her up on the side of the road. I know how VERY important it is when breeding any kind of dog and knowing that they were NOT doing it for the good of the breed just for money(they did not make any money):) I feel bad bacause my own puppy is from her litter but she was given/I just took her home.Ive gotten her dewormed,up to date on shots&ive trained her from day one.She gets spayed next month and health tested when 1)shes old enough for most of it 2) I have the money to pay for it.She will also be akc registered so that we can do events and as of right now she may become my service dog for my vocal cord problem as shes already alerting me.

    Please make sure she goes to rescue! Maybe they will let you handle the initial contact if you offer to do so.
