Ho-Bo Care Boxer Rescue

, Denver, CO, 80209

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.

Who's a good boy? It’s me, Chieftain! I am a 2-year-old pitbull mix looking for a fun-loving family to call my own.  I am a boy that loves to be outside. I love going on walks and playing in the backyard.  I love meeting new people but I don’t like to go out to busy places. I would rather stay home and lounge on the couch and chew on my bones until you return home. When you return I will be happy to get all the love and attention.     I’m such a smart boy and I LOVE training! I’ve been working hard on my training. I know my basic commands/cues: come, sit, stay, heel, leave it, off, and go nite-nite, to name a few. I love learning new tricks, especially for treats. It’s hard being a rock star!! I have not had an accident in my foster home, I whine at the door when I need to go out.   I am crate trained and will go in there to eat and will also go in there when you leave the house. I will sleep in my own bed at night, but would also love to sleep in bed with my new family if that is allowed.   I have got lots of energy and get very excited with kids. Younger kids rile me up and I forget how to act around them so I’m looking for a home without young children.  No cats or small creatures as I am very interested in them and would love to chase them.  I have lived with other dogs but can get too rowdy especially when I have my attention on squirrels and birds, so I would be better in a home as an only dog.  I would love to go to a home with someone who will continue to work on my training and help me grow up to become the best version of myself.  Chieftain is waiting to see if you are his match, if that is you apply to meet him and you won’t be disappointed. ********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.

Wrinkles, spots, and jowls, oh my!  Hello, my name is Esperanza, Essy for short. I am approximately 3 years old and am a polka-dotted beauty queen looking for a forever home to call my own. I have a wrinkly face that shows exactly what I’m thinking and beautiful dark eyes that you could get lost in.  I’ve been told I’m a super smart girl. I know my obedience commands/cues (sit, shake) and lots of tricks. The volunteers say I’m a well-behaved dog, 95% of the time.  We all can’t be perfect. The other 5% of the time is due to that typical craziness of a boxer. The good news is that I’m treated motivated and love to please my people so I just need a family that will continue to challenge my mind.  I love to go for walks and walk well on a leash. I’d love to find a family that enjoys long walks, hikes, or maybe even runs! I also love to play, my favorite games are chase and tug-of-war but once playtime is over, I’m all about the cuddles.   I’m a social butterfly and love meeting new people but can be picky about my doggie friends probably because I’m a tad awkward with my interactions. because and soaking up all the attention. I would love to meet you and soak up all your attention.  If you just apply to meet me, I’m sure you will fall in love with me.  ********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.

Do you love your morning coffee stops? Count me in, I love my doggy java! Hi, my name is Juliet and I am a 3-year-old, fawn boxer mix.  I’m the sweetest, most timid girl, but you can’t blame me after hearing about my story.  I’ve had a crappy hand dealt to me during my short life. I was dumped in a field in Texas, left to fend for myself. Then I made my way to Ho-Bo Care, along with my brother.  I was absolutely terrified in the shelter but made my way to a foster family.  It took me some time to come out of my shell and learn to trust people again. I eventually learned how to dog and was adopted by an amazon new mom in December of 2020 only to have her pass a year later so I found myself back at Ho-Bo Care with my foster family. I’m again on the hunt for my forever home.  I’m very shy and hesitant with new people so I need time to trust you. I get a lot of my confidence from the company of other dogs so I’m looking for a home with another dog.  I’m fostered with other dogs and co-exist beautifully. I get along with all types of dogs: small, big, young, or old.   Many people seek out that “instant connection” when adopting a new dog but that is likely not to be the case when you first meet me so I need a home that will give me the time and patience to continue to blossom. In time, I will get there. Once there the love I will have for you will be unparalleled.  If you are willing to give me the chance I deserve, apply to meet me. ********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.

Lucy never starts a day without a smile   I am a 4-year-old gorgeous, boxer mix with a silky black (tuxedo) coat. I have a fun-loving and curious personality.  I’m wonderful with other dogs of every size and very accomodating of different play styles. I love spending time with my human friends too and am very well behaved in the home. I don't jump up on people, but will take every opportunity to nuzzle my head into your lap. I know my basic obedience cues, know where to go potty, and am not destructive. I can pull a little on leash when I get excited, but just say my name to get my attention and I'll be right by your side!  I've been told girls as good as me don't come along every day, so don't miss this opportunity! Apply to meet me and be my new best friend!  I’m excited about life and it shows but you will have to apply to find out for yourself. ********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.
