About

Adopt a Boxer Scotland is a registered charity (SC043843) that helps to rehome, support and help boxer dogs in Scotland, as well as providing information on good welfare practices. We are operated and maintained entirely by unpaid volunteers, who co-ordinate AABS from their own homes.

Rehoming

We are a small charity therefore do not have a centre, the dogs that we rehome dogs either stay with their owners until a home is found or we use foster homes.

When rehoming a dog we aim to:

  • Carry out a basic behavioural assessment in the boxers original home
  • Rehome directly from the original owners home or when this is not possible provide a foster home for the boxer
  • Ensure all boxers in our care will be vet checked, microchipped, neutered, vaccinated and treated for fleas & worms before or shortly after being rehomed
  • Ensure all boxers in our care will receive vet care and behavioural support from a full member of the APBC when needed
  • Match adopters to boxers based on the boxers needs and the suitability of the adopters life style
  • Thoroughly assess all adopters, including home checks
  • Provide adopters with life time support

Education & Information

Adopt A Boxer Scotland wish to encourage responsible pet ownership, provide information on what to look for in good ethical breeders, provide support, advice, information to anyone looking for assistance with the boxer breed.

Education of this wonderful breed is one of the rescue’s primary aims; we hope to assist the general public so that they can make the right choice for them, their families and the dog when they consider buying a puppy or rescuing a boxer. By providing information on temperament, behavioural issues, health, cost and other factors, Adopt a Boxer Scotland endeavours to minimise the number of boxers who require rehoming.
