Ho-Bo Care Boxer Rescue

, Denver, CO, 80209

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

Hi, my name is Danny. I am a 1 yr old male mixed breed pup. I am up-to-date on my shots, microchipped, neutered and mostly housebroken :-)  My foster mom says I’m the sweetest dog EVER and I will make someone very happy when I find my loving, forever home. I am a big boy and like many big sweet dogs, I am convinced I am a lap dog. I love to snuggle and will enjoying laying my big head in your lap when you’re watching TV.   I love going on walks and have great leash manners.  I would be a great hiking partner and enjoy riding in the car (although I’m a little clumsy getting in and out!) I play great with my foster sister.  We love to chase each other, wrestle and appreciate a good game of tug.  I live in a home with farm animals, and am polite on my side of the fence. I’m very smart!  I can wait politely for my meals, know a few commands and I’m learning more all the time.  I’m not a counter surfer and know to keep all my feet on the ground.  I love to chew and I’m pretty good at keeping myself busy chewing on my bones and toys when the humans are working.   My foster mom says the best thing about me is my calm spirit.  Don’t get her wrong, I LOVE to romp and play.  But even when I’m active I’m easygoing, and when it’s time to chill, I’m a champion. ********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.

Jake is completely blind. He was born blind, so he has never known anything different. We cannot stress enough how incredibly easy he is to care for even with this disability. Jake has adapted to his blindness incredibly well and he gets around by himself completely fine! He even learns new spaces in just a few minutes! We have taken him on many vacations and overnight stays in new environments and he does great. He also loves to play fetch (he uses his nose and ears to find the ball!), and he loves daily walks, and even does great on hikes! His blindness does not require any extra medical care besides a visit to the eye doctor every 1-2 years. He is not in pain because of his eyes and lives a very happy and adventurous life. This year, Jake had his left eye removed, to assure that he would never experience any pain. This should never need to happen with his right eye. Jake's blindness doesn't hold him back from living his life and loving his humans, and you shouldn't let it hold you back either! Playing fetch with anyone is probably Jake's favorite activity, but his second favorite activity is definitely snuggling up with you under a blanket. Jake is SUCH a sucker for snuggles a nd will lay in your lap for hours if you let him. Jake is a mixed breed with Jack-Russell, Lab, and Pit. He's really the perfect size, weighing 27lbs, and looks like an eternal puppy. Jake is completely house trained. We have a doggie door and he is very used to going potty on his own schedule. He can also hold it no problem for over 12 hours if he needs to. He has never had an accident inside. He has also never chewed on anything other than a toy or bone, or made any other kind of mess in the house. He is crate trained, bed trained, food trained and leash trained. Not to mention he knows lots of tricks! Jake can sit, lay, stay, spin, stand, and do downward dog :). He also knows the phrases "no", "okay", "leave it " and "give me a kiss". Jake is an incredibly smart dog and we are not exaggerating at all when we say he can learn almost anything you want to teach him. He loves new tricks! ********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.
