Over a year ago I tried to adopt a boxer locally from a shelter. When I called about him they had already moved him to a rescue and said they couldn't (or wouldn't ) tell me which one. They also said he had some medical issues that had to be taken care of before he would be adoptable. I had given up since it's been so long, but that same shelter just posted a courtesy listing that a senior boxer named Deuce is ready to be adopted after fostering. Fingers crossed! I can't wait for an appropriate time of day to call!!
