How Do I Find a Good Home for My Boxer

If you're asking how do I find a good home for my boxer, it likely means you've decided you can no longer keep your pet. Choosing to rehome your dog yourself is a responsible decision that gives your boxer the best chance at a happy ending, and the good news is that there are many resources available to help you in the process of finding a great home for your dog. Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com is a trustworthy service that allows you to create a pet profile that can be seen by millions of people looking to adopt.

How to Ensure It's a Good Home 

Don't be too quick to hand your dog over to the first person who asks about him. Even if the family looks perfect on the surface, there are still steps you should take including:

  • Checking Vet References
  • Checking Personal References
  • Charging a Rehoming Fee of at Least $50
  • Asking About How Much Time the Boxer Will be Alone, Left Outside, Etc. 

Getting Help and Advice

In addition to the advice you'll find on Rehome, you can also reach out to local private rescues to see if they will be willing to help you screen potential adopters. Start with breed-specific boxer rescues. Many such groups will be happy to help a responsible pet owner who is doing their best to rehome the dog rather than surrendering the boxer to a shelter.

How Long Will It Take to Find the Right Home? 

It can take some time, but the more you get your dog in front of potential adopters, the better. While you won't find a home overnight, you'll be glad that you did the best you could for your pet and did what it took to find him a loving, forever home.
