Boxer Rescue of Texarkana is a Foster Home based rescue. We do not have a facility. The more foster homes we have the more Boxers we can save! Fostering is a fun and rewarding experience. Not only to you get to aid in the development of these Boxers but you get to give them the love, attention, and care they have never received. Are there challenges? Yes and some take time, training and patience to overcome.

Please consider helping a rescue Boxer by becoming a Foster Home. The period of time could range from 2 weeks to months to years until they are Adopted. Boxer Rescue of Texarkana covers all of the vetting expenses and in return you take them into your family and evaluate, train, love and get ready for adoption. We can provide the collar, leash and crate if you need one. We currently have FOSTER HOMES in Texarkana, AR/TX and in AR- Cabot, El Dorado, and Hot Springs. We also have Vets in these areas. Foster Homes would need to be able to get to one of these Vets.

We do work hard to make the match of the Boxer to the Foster Home. We want the Boxer to have success!


1.All applicants must be at least 21 years old in order to be considered for adopting.

2. Fenced in yard that is safe for a Boxer and room to run and play. Minimum of 4 feet high fence in great shape with no holes. No underground invisible fences, no pet containment systems, and no barbed wire fencing. Some Boxers will need 5 ft or privacy fence to keep them safe as are jumpers, diggers or fly over fences.

3. Boxers are indoor dogs. They do not tolerate heat and cold well. They are not to be left outside without supervision or while you are gone.

4. We do require that ALL OF YOUR PETS are all spayed/neutered, up to date on shot/rabies, annual vet exam, and on monthly heartworm prevention. We do check Vet for excellent Vet history/reference. We feel that if you are taking care of your family pets, that you will take good care of the foster Boxer.  

5. Our Boxers are not appropriate for kids under age 6. Many require older kids or no kids.

6. Many of our Boxers are not good with cats. Even if they pass the cat test, we do not guarantee that the Boxer will not harm your cat.

7. We are cautious with tiny to small dogs in a foster home due to size and many being fragile.

8. Please consider the dogs, cats and/or kids you have in your home that may not respond well to a new dog in the home.

9. We have the right to deny any application.
