|Welcome to Black Hills Boxer Rescue
|We are located in the beautiful Black Hills of Rapid City, South Dakota. We do not have a facility,
all of our rescue dogs live in foster homes with families and their pets. This allows us to work
with and take care of every need the boxer has. This also enables us to help match you with the
BHBR is dedicated to preserving the breed as the AKC intended it to be. Our part in preserving
the integrity of well bred boxers is to spay/neuter every boxer that comes into rescue. This
ensures that any conformation, temperament or health issues, will not be passed on from any
dog once it enters our program. Most importantly, we're battling the over population of this
breed. In the United States over 3 million companion animals are euthanized every year. This
includes boxers and other purebreds.
Boxers from reputable breeders will have been health tested and certified back into the lineage.
They spend a lot of money to certify their breeding dogs have no generational history of
disease of the heart, eyes, hips or other congenital issues prone to our beloved breed. They
also do not breed any dog that has not been proven in the ring to be of proper temperament and
conformation. They will happily provide you with all of the above documents.
If your breeder does not provide the above when breeding their litters, they are part of the
problem. They claim to love the breed and then use dangerous or unhealthy dogs for breeding.
It has to stop and only YOU can stop it. Don't purchase from this type of breeder or from pet
stores. If someone is set up selling pups in a parking lot or on a street corner this is NOT a
reputable breeder! Your cute puppy could grow into a dangerous or unhealthy adult dog.
Congratulations to the states that are boldly passing anti-puppymill laws!!!

|Three boxers were found chained to an abandoned house
out in the weather. There was no food or water, but plenty
of garbage. The owner managed to move the dogs before
law enforcement could intervene. Thankfully, two of the
boxers got loose and ended up in a Wyoming shelter. The
adoption fee was paid on both boxers so they could come
directly into rescue for spay/neuters and rehabilitation.
There was a mix up and the male was adopted out to the
public. Hopefully, not to the original owners. We now have
the above female in rescue and will get started on taking
care of her medical needs. She is a sweet, lively girl that is
beautiful beyond words, despite her condition. We're still
hoping the third boxer will show up in a shelter somewhere.
