Serving New Mexico

This is Jack, a reverse brindle Boxer. He is only seven months old and has his whole Boxer wriggling life in front of him. Unfortunately, this cutie sustained some serious injuries after falling from a second story balcony here in Albuquerque.Both his pelvis and jaw are broken, the jaw in two places, and both will require extensive specialty surgeries. Dr. Bannon with Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery has agreed to perform the jaw surgery pro bono (THANK YOU!). However, we will also need the expertise of Dr. Schwartz at VESCNM (Veterinary Emergency and Specialty of NM) to properly repair his pelvis.

Boxer Rescue of Albuquerque has been granted right of ownership and we have willingly accepted this formidable medical challenge. While the circumstances are tragic, we are truly honored to work with a great team of veterinary doctors to get Jack healthy once again. Jack is a very special boy and we want to do everything we can for him.

This is a big undertaking for our small rescue and we have only just begun. So, we are asking our Boxer families and supporters to help us, by donating what you can, to get Jack on the road to recovery to enjoy a happy healthy Boxer life. Our ambitious goal is to raise $3,800.00. Please enter “Jack” in the PayPal comments. Thank you!

Charlie - Is Currently Available for Adoption!  

This is Charlie, a 70 pound, 3-year-old boxer. He is kennel trained and sleeps in it at night without any issues. He is potty trained too! Although he does know some basic commands, he is a typical boxer – stubborn and sometimes not consistent.  He does like to chew on things and can help you rearrange some items in your home (shoes, cardboard, brooms).  He does grab food off tables and likes to escape through gates that are not secured completely.  He likes to ride in the car and, of course, has a naughty side as all boxers do. He will need someone to be patient with him as any strong pack leader and help him adjust to a new place. He is currently living a smaller dog but doesn’t always introduce well with other dogs – again, it is most likely that he needs someone who can do the introductions correctly. It would be best if he were an only dog.  He is neutered and up to date on his shots.  If you're interested in fostering or adopting Charlie please send us an email.

Gadget - Is Currently Available for Adoption!  

Gadget is a 3 year old reverse brindle Boxer. He is with his family that is looking to re-home Gadget.  His owner rescued him from the shelter as a puppy. He loves his “pack” dearly but his current family is not home enough for him. They feel he would flourish with additional dog companions, but their property and time constraints do not allow them to try out such a situation at this time. He would make an ideal “only” dog companion for an older individual. He’s very well house broken. He never chews or scratches or has accidents. He does get anxious around people he doesn’t know. It takes him a while to “warm up”. Please consider Gadget. He has a lot of love to give!  He is neutered, microchipped and current on all vaccinations.  If you're interested in adopting Gadget please send us an email or send an email to Ana Baca.

Boxer Rescue of Albuquerque has a wonderful problem!  

The year 2020 has turned the dog rescue world upside down. We took in more surrenders and adopted out more Boxers in 2020 than we have in quite some time. Many people are continuing to work from home and have found themselves yearning for animal companionship. We also believe that many breeders may have slowed their breeding practices. 


All of this has resulted in Boxer Rescue of Albuquerque not having any Boxers available for adoption at this time.


We would ask, that if you see a boxer needing to be rescued on a shelter website or social media in New Mexico please send us an inquiry.

Lola - Is Currently Available  

Lola is a spayed female brindle Boxer around 4 years old and weighs about 55 pounds. She is currently being cared for by a family who recently lost a loved one that was her previous owner. Unfortunately, Lola does not get along with the current family dog and can no longer be cared for in her present situation. Lola is crate trained and house broken. She gets a little nervous when she meets new people, but is very drawn to kids and women. She's a little hesitant with men and may need some work in that area. She is very lovable, loves attention and loves to tell you about it. She prefers to have her family around and is not thrilled when everyone is gone. Please send us an inquiry if you're interested in meeting Lola.

Tyson - Is Currently Available for Adoption!  

This is Tyson. He is a young male that was found wondering the streets. He is currently living with the family that found him, but their other dogs do not like him. He is not neutered yet and needs to get caught up on his shots. We are looking for a foster or permanent home. He should be introduced to other dogs slowly since it is not known if the other dogs just don't like him or if he is not good with other dogs. However, he is fine with their cat. He loves to invade your space and wants to cuddle as much as possible. He is good with kids and seems to like every person he meets.

If you're interested in fostering or adopting Tyson please send us an email.  Yes we used a valentines filter.

Gabby - Is Currently Available for Adoption!  

Young white female boxer. Spayed 1/22.  Vaccines are current. Thank you Gina for fostering Gabby and for the biography and evaluation. 

House trained.  Walks on a loose leash, but would rather play if human is in the mood to play, with leash.  Knows “not yours”, when her human is eating on the couch. “Enough”, when she starts to get too feisty when wrestling with human. “Stay”.  She has no issue with sharing and allows her foster to take chew toy or bone out of her mouth. Gabby has a great, reliable recall.  She is mannerly, and doesn’t try to get through a door in front of her human.  She will ride calmly in car, but needs help getting in my SUV.   Other motorists comment on her charm when riding in the car.  Gabby is still exuberant about meeting new people, but settles quickly. We have not met a person that she didn’t love and cuddle when introduced.  Gabby does not seem to have a prey drive when it comes to bunnies and squirrels in her yard. She has not been introduced to cats.  Gabby is playful and entertaining. I think she would like a male play companion.  She jumps, spins, throws a stick in the air, and creates her own agility course in the back yard.  Gabby limits use of her left back leg or foot when she walks.  She has been examined by our vet, and her hips and cruciate ligaments seem healthy.  She uses that leg when she jumps and spins, and when she is at a dead run, loops around the garden, turns through the trees, and headed back to her foster after the last cold night potty break, ears flapping like Sally Field’s as the Flying Nun. 


She was very thin, and ambulating in a somewhat army crawl when rescued from Rio Rancho Animal Control (RRAC). She was picked up as a stray, and surviving on the street, she then went to the cold concrete of RRAC.  She is now muscular and that leg may just need more time, her health has improved remarkably in just 5 weeks. 


Gabby listens, is very smart and learns quickly with a kind voice.  She really is the funniest, sweetest dog that I have had in my home.  


If you're interested in adopting Gabby please send us an email.

Louie - Is Currently Available!  

This is Louie, a very loving male boxer who is a little more than one year old.  He gets along fine with female dogs but not male dogs. He plays with his owner's 5 year old son all the time but tends to jump up a lot. He eats by himself but loves to play with the female Lab that his owner has. He does listen to basic commands like sit and shake, kennel trained but loves to be free in the yard.  When bringing him inside he will go into his kennel when told to go to bed. He is a very protective dog, has some food aggression and is very territorial when other male dogs are around.  He is not neutered yet and he did have all of his puppy shots.  However, he was initially rescued from a family that could not keep him in their apartment. Owner recommendations are no small kids, older kids are better; and being the only dog would be ideal. If you're interested in adopting Louie please send us an email.

Beau - Is Currently Available!  

Beau is a neutered male Boxer around 2 years old and weighs about 65 pounds.  He is currently being cared for by a family in the south valley near where he was found by another local rescue.  He has been in foster care for about 6 months and is current on all of his vaccinations. Beau has been living with a couple of female chihuahuas and loves their company.  Beau is crate trained, house broken and would prefer his 4 legged roommates to be female.  He loves meeting new people and will offer his paw as soon as you're within reach. He is very lovable and very much loves the attention.  If you're interested in adopting Beau please send us an email.

Buster - Is currently on a test drive!

Buster is approximately 2 years old. He is a big boy weighing in at around 70 pounds. If you've been following our available boxers page, you would have noticed that Buster had been adopted. Unfortunately, the adoption didn't work out and he is once again available. He will make a great companion for empty nesters or families with teen children. He is incredibly obedient and will bond to his adoptive family very quickly. We are recommending that he be the only dog in the household. He is excellent on leash and will make someone a great lifelong companion. As you can see from his pictures below, he can be quite the couch potato.

Giving New Life to Forsaken Boxers in Need

We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Donations of any amount are welcome. Your generosity is what keeps us able to rescue abandoned Boxers and provide them with a second chance at life.

We are asking for your support and prayers!

This is Ruby. She is only 10 weeks old and is currently hospitalized at the Veterinary Emergency Center on Montgomery Blvd..  As you can see from her pictures that her condition is critical. Ruby has been surrendered to us by an individual that thought this condition would correct itself without seeking veterinary care. Ruby was not eating or drinking at all prior to being surrendered to us on 11/19.


We have been able to determine that she had hookworms that were left untreated for almost two weeks. Ruby was so sick that she received a blood transfusion her first night in the hospital.  We have seen some improvement since the blood transfusion but she is not yet out of the woods.


Hookworm infection causes disease through worms eating and sucking blood from the dog's intestine. This can cause significant blood loss, which can be very severe in young puppies and if left untreated, as in this case, results in a condition called "failure to thrive".


We're not sure how long Ruby will be hospitalized and her road to recovery may be long. We do know that she is a fighter and still has so much love in her heart for her caregivers!.

Mickey - Located in Las Cruces *Courtesy Post*  

Mickey is around 3 years old and had only been kept outside in a kennel her entire life with really no attention or love. Mickey is located in Las Cruces, NM.  Her owners no longer wanted her and were going to put her down until my family stepped in and brought her into our home. She is great with our 3 dogs but somewhat skiddesh with our 3 energetic grandsons and for that reason we're unable to keep her. She loves rides in the car, attention, fetching the ball and likes the water. A home with lots of love and no children, no cats would be great for her. Serious inquiries only.
