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!

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.

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.

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.
