Ho-Bo Care Boxer Rescue

Rescue/Shelter Description

Ho-Bo Care Boxer Rescue is a non-profit, all volunteer group in Colorado. Our small group consists of people who care for the homeless, abused, and unwanted Boxers. Ho-Bo Care tries to find permanent and caring homes for these animals. ​ Our boxers come from shelters that need help, homes where they can’t stay at anymore, or from the streets. Often these animals are starved, sick or neglected. They need food, medicine or medical treatment and sometimes basic training. Mostly, however, they need an owner who is willing to give the necessary attention to the animal. A Boxer is a dog who especially needs human companionship. He needs to be included in the family to be a happy dog. Ho-Bo Care agents try to assure the rescue Boxer such a home. ​ To do our rescue work we spend a lot of time on the phone as well as on the road. All Ho-Bo Care Agents are volunteers and many of us have full time jobs outside of the rescue work we do. The costs of caring for the dogs include food, shelter, and medical care as well as advertisement costs and website costs. As the costs are increasing, we have to ask for donations to be able to continue our work. All the money goes back to our rescue Boxers, either directly or indirectly. Ho-Bo Care also tries to help people with advice when they encounter a problem with their Boxer. We try to educate people who intend to breed as well as offer advice to those who feel they need to give up their dog. Every dog that can stay in his own home is another dog saved. We try to educate people about the Boxer and its needs. Our members inform interested people about the necessity of yearly vaccines, vet care, training, feeding, and overall care for their Boxer. ​ Many people do not believe that the Boxer needs our protection; this is mostly due to ignorance. Breeding by owners with no experience nor the necessary information has lead to an overpopulation of the Boxer. Spaying and neutering is still not a common practice of the average pet owner who may have never visited a shelter and the seen the misery of these animals. More and more purebred animals end up in shelters because the owners either don’t want them anymore or are unwilling to pay the shelter fee to retrieve their pet. Many owners believe that if the dog is placed in a shelter that it is sure to find a home. Unfortunately, this isn’t true. As much as the shelter may try to find homes, it also has a limited space to keep all the unwanted animals. In order to place the newcomers, others are killed. In order to help out at least our breed, we have founded Ho-Bo Care. It is a small step to help some animals in need. "We are Ho-Bo Care Boxer Rescue with an emphasis on Care and Rescue" - Marita, Founder and director

Do you like long walks and cuddling?  If so, then look no further.  Hi,  I'm Buster and I'm so excited to meet you. I'm 6 years old and love my humans so much. I enjoy long walks, a good bone, and cuddling. I'd love to be the center of your world and be with you all the time but if I have to be left alone, rest assured that I'm very well behaved. I'm house-trained and non-destructive. I walk well on a leash but sometimes you have to remind me not to pull when I get excited - squirrel! I know my manners and I can wait patiently for my food. I'm a pro at my obedience cues and already know how to sit, lay down, stop, leave it, and wait. I'm very smart and love to learn and will do anything to get treats! I've got the perfect blend of mellow and active energy. I'm happy to be chill with my family, but am no stranger to a long hike or game of tug in the backyard! My dream forever home is cat-free and adults only. I'm friendly with most other dogs but have been known to invite myself over to my friend's houses unexpectedly, so a 6ft fence is a must! Please come and meet me, I have so much love to share!  ********PLEASE READ BELOW PRIOR TO EMAILING IN********** If you are interested in adopting this dog or any other from our rescue, please go to https://www.hobocare.org/adopt to review our home requirements and fill out an application.

Ruff, ruff!  Ahem, I mean HELLO to you, potential adopter who may not speak “dog”.  No big deal if you don’t of course, all that really matters is you love dogs, which means ME! Some kind hikers found me wandering alone in the Rocky Mountains, and as you Colorado people know, it’s not a great idea to be alone in the mountains without even a water bottle! Though uncertain at the time, these people convinced me to follow them down the mountain and, long story short, took me to Ho-Bo Care.  Overall, I’m a really fun guy, but I have been known to get excited and jump up to say hello when I meet new people. Trust me, if you walked a mountain-mile in my paws, you’d be excited to meet others, too!Recently, I spent an afternoon with a pup specialist who wanted to learn all about me.  She observed me meeting strangers as well as unfamiliar dogs. I really love people, but other dogs can make me nervous.  Mind you, I’m not rude to these dogs, I’m just hoping to be the pride and joy of my human forever-family rather than make new furry friends.By the way, did you know it’s the start of football season?  Did you also know that I looooove football, especially the Broncos?  I’d love to hang out by your feet while the game is going, and would eagerly chase a ball any other time of day. Of course, it you want to go to a game one day, I’ll patiently wait for you until you gethome -- just leave the game on for me.  I’m crate trained, and quickly settle down for a nap so PLEASE GIVE ME A CHANCE.  I’m a great dog and would love being part of your family. ********PLEASE READ BELOW PRIOR TO EMAILING IN********** If you are interested in adopting this dog or any other from our rescue, please go to https://www.hobocare.org/adopt to review our home requirements and fill out an application.
