Hello Florida Boxer Rescue supporters,

Thank you for your continued support and contributions to FBR! It seems that we've been neglecting our newsletter for some time, but don't worry, that's all about to change. Hopefully we can bring you fresh information quarterly about our work with the best breed on the planet! If there's anything you'd like to see in our newsletter, or maybe even something you didn't like, I'd love to know about it so I can improve and learn along the way. Feel free to email me at

All the best,
Help Olivia!

This sweet little girl needs your help! Olivia is the result of irresponsible breeding, leaving her with cataracts on her eyes at only three months old. The surgery she will need has an 80 percent success rate. She also has ectropion, excessive drooping of the eyelids; but we’re hoping that dissipates as she matures.

What can you do?

Senior Spotlight

Graceful is a beautiful, seven yr-old white boxer. She is fully seeing and hearing, but lost her leg in a past accident. Fortunately, she doesn't seem to notice and gets around just fine without it. I was lucky enough have a three-legged family member (you may have seen Hope featured in the 2012 FBR holiday letter) and can assure she had nothing missing! Graceful is as sweet as can be and loves all kids, adults and dogs alike! One bonus of an adult dog: she's house trained! Can you give this almost-senior her forever home? She promises to love you unconditionally and give lots of boxer kisses!

See Graceful and our other
adoptable dogs here!

Doxycycline shortage
Doxycycline, used for treatment in dogs with heartworm, is in a shortage nationwide. This means, treating our boxers is more expensive than ever. Read about doxycycline treament from the American Heartworm Society, or get more info on the shortage from
All Pet Care Hospital
All Pet Care Hospital in Clearwater has offered FBR their services! We can't thank them enough, and you can visit their site here. Can you imagine how the doxycycline shortage is affecting them? Please remember to keep your boxers on heartworm preventative!

Where do my donations go?

Your donations are what enable FBR to rescue abandoned boxers and provide them with a new life. All donations are 100% tax deductible. These donations are needed to cover the cost of rescuing dogs from death row shelters, assisting owners who must surrender their family pets, spay and neuter all animals who cross our door and most importantly provide medical attention when required. Numerous dogs we save require extensive medical treatment before they become available for adoption. The actual care of each dog is done by the generosity of our volunteers and foster homes, who pay out-of-pocket to feed and house the boxers who will be your future family member!

We can only do this with your help. Please give what you can to save a Boxer’s life.

Donate now!
Duke & Lucy's Corner:
Marianne, mom to two beautiful boxers, one adopted from a rescue group just like FBR, is excited to share this column with you in each issue of our newsletter. Duke & Lucy are the names of her pups, and I think you'll find each of her stories of their adventures together fun and heart-warming. Marianne, Duke & Lucy are pictured to the right. Without further ado, here's the first of many from Duke & Lucy!
