Cowtown Boxer Rescue

, Fort Worth, TX, 76112

Shelter Description

Cowtown Boxer Rescue was founded January 2018 and we are located in Ft Worth, Texas. We are a 501(c)3 non profit organization and our group is made up of 100% volunteers. These are the people that care for the abused, homeless, unwanted and sick boxers that we take into the rescue. And only because they have a deep love for the breed and believe they all deserve a second chance. Most of us volunteered for other rescues and have now decided to put our wisdom together and start our own. We rely on our adoptions and private donations from generous donors to help us cover all medical treatments needed, training and all the other expenses that come with rehabilitation. Please join us in saving these very deserving boxers by adopting a rescue boxer, becoming a foster parent or volunteer. And of course we accept donations. Thank you for your support. Note: Please know we only do adoptions within the state of Texas.

#TheBellaDiaries --------------- 1/5/2020 Dear Diary, Today is a weird day. One minute I was in a very sad place with lots of other dogs barking or sad, and I was feeling quite lonely and scared, then I was free! Yes. FREE! Having the best time in a car heading out of that place. Turns out Cowtown Boxer Rescue saved me! They found me an awesome foster Mom to take care of me until I find a family that will love me fur-ever. Lots of this is new to me, so check back and I'll be sure to update my diary so we can keep in touch. Love, Bella --------------- 2/15/2020 Dear Diary, Well, it's been a whirlwind but I'm settling in nicely. My foster Mom is sooo amazing. She learned very fast that I need to take things slow so I can adjust. There is this thing that hangs above me high up, and it spins around and around and around. She called it a ceiling fan and told me it was ok and wouldn't hurt me, but I'm not so sure about that. It's pretty scary. But I'm getting used to it. We get to go on walks together. I can't go far right now, but I'm working on it. I just like to snuggle with my people. I'm a people person, and that's ok. I prefer no other dogs hanging out with me, we just don't get along. I know that doesn't work for everyone, but it has to work for me. I'm sure there is an amazing family out there that just wants me to love too. I can't wait to meet them. Love, Bella   show less

#TheDaphneDiaries 3/25/2020 Dear Diary, Wow! What a day. I was lost and then living in a place with a lot of other dogs. It seemed like forever, and today instead of going out back to potty, they walked me out front. I was scared! So scared. It was weird and I didn't understand what was going on.  Then I got into a car and they drive up to a window where they handed out these yummy meat things in bread. Yummy!!!' After more riding, I got to meet what they call my foster family. I was excited and happy to meet them. My foster Dad is so comfy to squeeze up against. They gave me some yummy food and set up a comfy bed for me. So I'm going to go relax for a while. I'll check back in soon! Love, Daphne ---------------------------- 3/29/20 Dear Diary,  I've been hanging out with my foster family and it's been great. Yummy food all the time, a comfy bed. We sit together outside, or in the living room. I hear the other doggies in the house, but I hear we may get to meet each other tonight. My foster Mommy explained that I needed to "decompress". Whatever that means. But I'm getting comfy and I play a little and my butt just starts to wiggle when I get excited!  Tomorrow, I go to the vet. Someone that is going to make sure I'm healthy and I will get spayed. Whatever that means. All I know is that I'm going to have to stay very calm for a while, but that should be ok. I'm pretty laid back anyway. Well, check back and see how I do after my appointment with the vet person. Love, Daphne xoxo show less

Hey Ya'll! I don't know where to start, but let me just start by say "thank you"....I am beautiful! I get told that all the time! It's probably my cute petite figure, or my pretty ice blue eyes. But ok...let me tell you about me. I am a sweet, loving, feisty 10 month old boxer girl. You should know that I am hearing impaired...but that doesn't stop me from acting like your typical little boxer girl! If you want to talk to me...just sign...I know sit, come, stay and more! I am just as smart (well, probably smarter) than any other boxer and I can learn just as easily.  I LOVE to play outside. My foster Mom goes crazy because I love to roll around in the dirt with my pine cone...what...its fun. Which means I get lots of baths and I'm a good girl in the bath. I even like getting my teeth cleaned most of the time. I love a snuggle with my foster Mom, and I love to play with my foster brother and sisters. Even though I love my foster family, I know there is a perfect family for me out there. I need to be the Queen of the castle and that means I am the only dog and I get all the attention...a family that doesn't see me being hearing impaired as a disability, but will help me learn more signs and flourish! If you think you are the family...click that adopt button now! In the meantime...be sure to keep updated by following my diary @ #thefionadiaries! show less

Hello World I am Lucas!! Wow...do I have a story to tell you. I'm actually from California...yup...a beach bum from the West Coast! A boxer rescue brought me all the way to TX and even found me a home. Or so we thought. Sadly, I ended up back in a shelter in TX, and a complete mess. I had lumps, bumps and scrapes all over. Thankfully, Cowtown Boxer Rescue took me and, and even though it's been a long haul since then...it's been awesome! First, I have the BEST EVER foster family, they decided to foster me even though I had some issues. See, first...I'm deaf. But that's ok, it's not that diffcult. They'll even tell you how quickly I learned to potty outside and even learned some commands that they give me their hands! IT's awesome. I've had some lumps and bumps removed as well and they found out I'm heartworm positive. Because of the lumps/bumps I'm on slow kill treatment, but I'm getting treatment and I am available for adoption! We'll just need to make sure you follow all my instructions for heartworm treatment very carefully...it's just one pill a month! Living in TX has also been tough on my skin. I have allergies, so I break out a lot. Sometimes it's worse than others, but I take medicine to help with that too. So yeah, sounds like a lot, doesn't it. I know it's going to take a special person to adopt me. And I want a special person to adopt me, so we'll both be happy.  Because guess what...my fosters will tell you how AWESOME I AM! I'm a good boy, I love to snuggle with my foster dad. He's my snuggle buddy. They will tell you I am a sweet boy just looking to hang out and share love and affection. I also love to go on car rides...especially when you let the top down and I can feel the wind through my...err..fur! :) I think the I'm worth it. I know I worth the special attention I'm going to need. I hope you think so too...so get your application in so we can meet up and get to know one another! I hope to meet you soon! show less

#TheWyattDiaries 10/2/2019 Dear Diary, I've had quite the life so far. I've lived most of my life on the streets as a stray. I've had to fend for myself, and find my home shelter and food. I'm tired but so happy that someone found me and Cowtown Boxer Rescue saved me. I'm in a foster home that loves me already. I get to hand out with other boxers sometimes, and there are two adorable girls that fuss all over me. I've got lots to learn and hope to find MY family soon. Love, Wyatt ------------- 11/10/2019  Dear Diary, I’ve decided after much thought that I’m not going to tell everyone exactly how old I am. I have been estimated to be be probably 5-6. I figure that’s likely based among other things my full grey face and my chill demeanor. What’s peculiar is I have the teethe of a 3 year old. Could it be that I am very particular about dental hygiene, or have I just been cursed with a premature grey face??? I’d rather not admit so I will just say that I am an extremely “mature” guy! I also have a gorgeous coat that is super soft. My foster mom says is one of my most amazing features. I am a very affectionate guy that loves to snuggle. Sometimes when I am all snuggled up here, I play over and over in my mind just exactly how I find my forever home. I would really like to find a home that I am the only guy (pet). I am a no nonsense type and I would really like to just get all of the snuggles, all of the adventures, and just otherwise be left alone! I am pretty relaxed and extremely easy going so long as I am the only pet in the house. I am crate trained and potty trained. I walk extremely well on a leash and I love adventures and car rides. I have never met a stranger. I’m keeping my paws crossed that my people stumble across me soon and get me “home”. Home to snuggle and love and be their good boy. Their only boy. Love, Wyatt -------------- 11/20/2019 Dear Diary, They say there is a perfect family for every dog. I sure hope that is true. As I ponder the possibilities of where life is going to take me exactly, I wonder; is my perfect family really out there? Is my forever person just a day away, a week away? Is it possible that they might read this entry? How exactly are they going to find me?  I am such a fun loving guy who has never met a stranger! My foster Mom says I am one of the easiest dogs she has had around.  The fact that I am incredibly picky about what other dogs I hang around with(so I am likely best as an only pup) and the fact that I absolutely do not do cats could be a hang up for some people. I’m certain there is someone that is looking for their one and only though! The most important thing to know is that I am so amazing with with people. I am 💯 in love with everyone I come across, I especially love my people, but even strangers too. I’ve yet to meet a person I don’t like. I am becoming increasingly attached to my fosters bc they are such cool people and I really like being with them. But, what I really want is for my forever person/people to find me!!!!  Should I be concerned that when people are looking for their Forever Boxer that they may inadvertently pass right over me not seeing past my gray face? What they may not see is my beautiful brindle color and amazingly soft coat. Truth be told I am a pretty distinguished guy! But, all cards on the table... I think most of these grays are premature. My dentist says I have the teeth of a three year old!.  During the multiple quiet times I enjoy during the day I think about who my forever people are and what they’re like.  If you are looking for an incredibly handsome guy with lots of spunk and energy who also has manners, you may want to click the link in the comments below to find out more about me. I can’t wait to meet you! Love, Wyatt --------------- 1/15/2020 Dear Diary, So much has happened in the last couple of months. The holidays were crazy fun and over in a flash. I went to a place called boarding for a week while my foster family was traveling. It was actually pretty cool. I made friends with all of the vet techs there and really enjoyed myself. They gave me a great report when I was picked up. I still haven’t met a human that I don’t like!  Also, you should know that my results are in.... There is a 100% chance that I am a hugger!!! Man, do I love to hug. I guess I’m just sensitive that way. I’m not ashamed at all. I’ll give a hug anytime, any place. You won’t catch me turning down a hug.  Now that everyone is settled back in from all of the holiday activities I’m wondering when my forever person is going to find me. Will they love hugs too? Will they want to take me on adventures? Will we go for walks together? Who will it be? I can’t wait to find out. I am officially on the lookout for you.  Maybe you’re looking for an easy going guy who loves cuddles and adventures, who would really prefer to be your one and only. Maybe you are looking for a chill guy to hang out with.  You can learn more about or apply to adopt me on the link in comments.  Until then HUGS & kisses.  Love, Wyatt show less
