Accepting Adoption Applications for Poppy. Poppy is a beautiful 5-yr-old female fawn-colored Boxer who has recently joined the SABR ranks.
She was reluctantly being surrendered by her owner, who has had her since she was 6 weeks old, due to her incompatibility with the family‘s Golden Retriever.
Poppy is housebroken, crate trained, and has no medical issues. She is a very sweet, lovable dog and gets along with ALL people, including children, whether she already knows them or not. She loves to snuggle, is great on a leash, knows commands such as sit and shake, and is an excellent traveler, having accompanied her family on multi-day trips in and out of hotels while attending kids‘ soccer games. She is very social — everyone loves her!
Poppy has been an indoor dog with the run of 5 acres. She is afraid of very loud noises (gunshots, fireworks). She does NOT get along with female dogs, NOR with cats. She has gotten along with male dogs, but placement in a home where she is the only dog would be preferred (although not absolutely necessary).
In the words of her owner: “She doesn’t get along with my Golden Retriever; otherwise she is the PERFECT dog!“

Accepting Adoption Applications for Phoenix. He is ready to find his own loving, patient adopter, as he is now gradually overcoming his fear of humans, and would benefit from having a permanent nurturing home.
Phoenix came to SABR in a horrendous physical and emotional state. He was extremely malnourished, very fearful of humans, and infested with whipworms. Since being with us, he has doubled in weight (26 lbs at intake to 50 lbs currently), been treated with Panacur for the worms, and gone down from a plethora of medications to just two remaining antibiotics. His heart and lungs are good, and his lab work is clear. He continues to get three meals a day of kibble with wet food mixed in.
Phoenix is understandably very skittish, and emotionally very fragile, since he is deaf, blind in one eye, and scarred from an abusive past. He needs time to warm up to people, but once you have earned his trust, he will become kind and loving. He is a really good boy. He needs a nurturing home with calm, quiet loving humans; he gets along with other calm dogs.
Phoenix is excellent on a leash. He has learned some ASL words: he understands signing for no, sit, water, food, potty, stop, stay, and good boy. SABR will teach these to his adopter.

Accepting Adoption Applications for Zack. He is a 3 year old neutered black-and-white Boxer mix who is currently with a foster family.
His owner moved out of the country and needed to find Zack a new home.
Zack’s owner adopted him from a rescue at the age of one. He is used to being an indoor dog, and therefore is housebroken and does well on a leash.
Zack is a sweet, sensitive, non-aggressive dog according to his owner. He can become easily scared, but is good with patient and gentle people, including children. He is also good with other dogs, especially puppies and smaller breeds, as long as they are friendly. It is not known at this time if he gets along with cats.
Medically, he has exhibited some diet-related sensitive skin/stomach in the past, so it is suggested that he be kept on a low-fat diet as a precaution against recurrence.

Accepting Adoption Applications for Maverick. He is a neutered 5-yr-old Boxer-Red Heeler mix who was adopted at the age of 6 months by his current owner. He weighs 75 lbs and has no medical issues.
He has been living as an indoor dog, and has done well with the house cat; it is unknown how he would do with other dogs. He is not good with very young children, but is fine with older children.
Maverick will be standoffish and bark at strangers until he gets to know them, as he is protective of “his” humans. He has large melty brown eyes and will use them to soak up loving.
He has been well trained to sit, stay, come, heel, lay down, and roll over.
His ideal future family would be able to offer him attention, have plenty of space to run, and not have young children.
Please consider adopting this loveable boy by filling out an application for Maverick.
