Welcome

All of our dogs are adopted into their new homes already spayed or neutered, de-wormed several times, current on vaccinations depending on their age.  Puppies will have at least 2-3 vaccinations before they go to their homes and if they are old enough they will have their rabies vaccination.  Adults will have their rabies shots and heartworm tested.  All dogs are microchipped.  You will receive their medical records at the time of adoption.

AXL Boxer

Axl

  

Axl is a really great dog in most respects and because he is an active guy, he should probably be in a home with kids older than 5 years old. The reason is because Axl is strong and wants to play and he knocks little kids down. Of course if he had a firm hand to train him basic commands and simmer his spirit a little bit he would get along even with younger kids. He LOVES kids and tries to play with them all the time. Axl love human attention, something he missed out on in his early life.

Axl

  

He weighs roughly 60 lbs and as with most Boxers, he 'kidney beans' around, knocking over things out of excitement. Plus he has a natural tail that whips pretty hard and rapidly with all that excitement but hey that is what most dogs do.. 

He is on an eating schedule to monitor his potty breaks. He actually DOES know the sit command, but he can be stubborn.  He'll sit if there's an incentive (a treat, etc.).  He comes immediately when you call him and stops any bad behavior the minute you tell him 'No' or make a corrective sound.  He is very eager to please as he loves his humans and it makes him so happy to spend time with them. He likes to chase a ball but doesn't necessarily return it to you.  

Axl

  

He is not food aggressive at all; he's allowed me to reach into his bowl when he's eating; he also allows you to take a toy from his mouth, so I have no concerns about his overall temperament.  The only real issue has been he doesn't realize he's a big, strong dog!  He LOVES attention and to play!  

Axl

  

Oh he is a nosey guy and wants to go out the front door and can be a flight risk with the door standing wide open. He will come back when called but he sees it as a game and fun to dart out the front door.  !  He does not run out the back door because that is the door he goes potty!! , but I think that's only because when we put him out, it's always in the backyard, so he doesn't WANT to go out there!  :)  

Axl

  

Axl has all of the Boxer characteristics and traits. He is up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, already neutered and micro-chipped and has his rabies shot and certificate.  He's a very good natured dog and incredibly lovable. He will come with his food, treats, bed, collar, leash, etc.). All of this is included in his adoption fee of $175.00. His medical records will come with him at the time of adoption.

Axl

  

Please note that Axl is NOT deaf ; just because he is all white. He comes when called and seems to love his name. He is a 3 years old with a lot of puppy left in him. It would be WONDERFUL  to find someone to give him the attention he craves, take him on walks and interact with him because he LOVES attention!! 

MR. WILSON

Mr. Wilson

Mr. Wilson is 5 months old and a goof ball.  As you can see he loves to see, he is a true Labrador Retriever.  His mother is a black Lab who is on the streets and too smart to go into a trap.  No idea who dad is but the entire litter came out as Labs.

Mr. Wilson

Wilson has a nice medium long wavy coat that surprisingly does not shed.  We are in San Antonio, Tx and you would think that the heat would make him shed but it doesn't.  He loves his hugs but he loves being outside right now so he can play in the pool and run around with his toys

Mr. Wilson Chilling

I guess he is just taking a break from playing with his 2 sisters.  He is worn out as normally he has a smile on his face

Fanta

Fanta

Fanta is a 7 month old Labrador Retriever who is seeking her forever home

Fanta

True to her Lab traits and characteristics, Fanta loves the water and can sit there and play with her toys in peace.

Fanta

Fanta can be a big baby at time and just likes to lay with you and cuddle

Fanta

Fanta was part of a litter of 9 born to a stray mom on the street.  We were able to save all of them except 2.  Fanta loves toys and playing with her brother and sister.  But her brother has bren adopted and Fanta is a bit lonely as her sister Sprite is a bit shy.

Fanta

As you can see Fanta is very comfortable being a cuddle baby but she is growing so she won't be a lap dog much longer.

Fanta's Mother

Fanta's mother is about 50 lbs so she should not weigh more than that as an adult.

HAVEN

Haven

I know that name sounds strange but she has a sister from the previous litter that she is identical to and her older sister's name is Hootie.  I'm looking for a good name for her.  
She is 2 months old, a sweet baby who clings onto your shoulders or shirt like she is a real baby.  She is happy and likes to play but she is quiet.  She would make a great companion playmate for another dog,

Hazley

This little girl is super sweet but she enjoys rough housing.  Hazley would be a good candidate as a companion pet and she would love a forever home,

Haven's Mother

This is Haven's mother.  This girl comes close and she is fed daily and I will try my best to trap her and get her fixed so she does not have anymore litters on the street.  There are so many strays on the street.

Daddy #1

One of momma's boyfriends and they all hang together,

Hootie

This is Hootie from the previous litter.  She has been adopted into a wonderful home and her family loves her

Daddy #2

Momma has 2 boyfriends and this is probably one of the daddy's.  This big boy fathered 2 of the girls.

37th Street German Shepherd Pups

Raven

Haven's sister.  Hurry up and put your application, they will go quickly.  2 months old and will be ready to go to their home on July 20

Raven

3 of the sisters and they are gathered for a road trip to get vaccinated, yeah!!!

37th Street Puppies

There are 7 total in this litter.  I rescued her last litter and they were all smart and quiet and love to cuddle

Haven & Raven

Haven with Raven in the background,

2 Sisters

2 sisters sweet as can be, they are 11 weeks old and working on potty training,

Haven on the shoulder

Sweet Haven loves to cuddle just like a baby.

37th Street Pups

Twin

Twin getting her 1st bath.  She slept like a baby.

Yes, that is her name until she finds a new home and her new family gives her another name.  It is obvious why I named her Twin, take a look at her sister Haven!

Twin & Serena

Big foster sister Serena is comforting Twin on being a new arrival and getting use to being in a home.

Twin

Twin has come a long way and doing great.  At 11 weeks she has master potty training, she holds it for up to 4 hours.  That is really good for a young puppy

Hazley

As you can see, Hazley's dad is Daddy #1.  Hazley wrestles with Haven and Twin but she loves to play with long lasting raw hides and balls.

Haven, Hazley and Twin

We are in our BMW convertible and headed upstairs to our puppy room.  We had a great time playing upstairs.

Haven and Sister #1

This sister is very small but not the smallest and a girly girl.  Still trying to think of a name for her,

SHASTA

Shasta

Shasta is a 5 month old Labrador Retriever and the sister to Mr. Wilson (also listed on here for adoption).  
Shasta is a bit more shy but very loving.  She has fun playing chase with her brother and sister and playing with her toys.  Shasta is very quiet and gets along with everyone.  Just give he 2-3 minutes to warm up and then you have a great puppy.

Shasta Swimming

Like all Labs Shasta enjoys the water but mostly to cool off, but she love playing with toys and they have lots of toys to keep them being curious about human items.

Shasta Growing

Her mother is a pure breed black Labrador Retriever who weighs about 55 lbs and a short coat.  Shasta has a smooth shiny short coat unlike her brother Mr. Wilson who has a medium wavy coat.

Siblings

These are the 3 left, 2 girls and 1 boy.  This picture is when they were a little younger.

Sweet Shasta

She is very comfortable in your lap even though she is an active puppy but in no way hyper-active, just normal.

Shasta Relaxing

Love how content she is

DAKOTA

Meet Dakota

  

This gentle girl is looking for a home where she can be your best friend.  Dakota is 80 lbs and needs to walk to drop at least 15 lbs off of her.  She would love to walk as she is very friendly and likes meeting new people.

The vet has described her breed as mostly Husky with some Labrador Retriever mixed in and the vet puts her age at 5 years old.  She has good solid teeth.  There are no medical problems with her and she tested NEGATIVE on her heartworm test --  YIPPEE!!!

Dakota

  

Dakota is up to date on her vaccination and rabies shots, she will not need anything until this time 2019,  She has also been de-wormed.  She is microchipped and her medical records will come with her at the time of adoption.  She will need to be on monthly Heartworm Preventative and we can sell you a 6 month supply for $47 so you do not need to pay to have her tested again.  Her test results will come in her medical records.

Dakota

  

Dakota is in a foster home with 2 other big dogs, a cat and a rabbit and little kids.  She gets along with everyone, she has not had 1 incident with any of them.  She is low energy and will lay there and watch everyone doing their thing and she is totally fine with that.  Give her a chewbone and that has made her day! I'm not too sure about her playing with toys, you'll have to speak to her foster mom about that.

Dakota

  

Dakota would love to find her forever home. Dakota is such a sweetheart and always full of smiles but most of all she gets along with adults and children of all ages.  Every night she tucks my school age boys into bed and sleeps next to them all night.  

She is brownish-red in color with white paws and white face.  When it's feeding time she gets very excited and loves to show it with her friendly dances.  She also shows excitement when you put water inside her small pool that she plays in.  Dakota enjoys playing fetch, having her belly rubbed, going for walks and loves to cuddle.

When she goes out to potty she walks the yard, sometimes lays out there to sunbath and comes back to the sliding glass door to be let in. She is completely house trained and trustworthy to be left alone without having to be crated.  She is crate trained but she doesn't bother anything that is not hers.

Dakota

  

She is house trained and will go to the back door letting you know that it is potty time.
When Dakota is outside during the night she gets scared and will cry until brought inside.  She is strictly an indoor family pet type of dog.

Overall, Dakota is a friendly, sweet and loving older dog who wants to share this with a good forever family. 

Dakota rides good in the car, doesn't mind getting her nails done or taking a bath.  Surprisingly for her breed, there is very little shedding.

Dakota would do good in an apartment because she is so calm, a non barker and just a gentle girl.  She would love to have her owner human person to love her so she doesn't have to share the love.  

Please email us at roxysrescue@yahoo.com if you'd like to speak to her foster mom, set up a meet and greet for adoption or have any interest in her.  Her foster mom can tell you so much more about her personality.

Dakota having fun

Dakota is the sweetest of the 4 dogs at her foster home, well she was.  Now Lilly has taken over as being just a happy, sweet and playful girl.

KAILY

Meet Kaily

Kaily found me by breaking her chains from being tied up and she showed up at one of my feeding stations where I feed strays dogs.  She was heavily pregnant.

Kaily

In 2 days Kaily gave birth to 9 healthy puppies.  All of the puppies grew to resemble full Labrador Retrievers but the vet believes Kaily is mixed with Lab and Pit bull

Kaily

Kaily has been in our system for 2 years and I believe it is because she looks mad or scary and nothing could be further from the truth.  She is extremely friendly and loving and loves to cuddle and watch TV.  She evens stands in front of the TV until you turn it on, then she nudges you to sit on the couch so the 2 of you can cuddle!

Kaily

Kaily gets along with all dogs big and small, she is cat friendly and even likes the bunny who lives in her foster home,  Kaily loves receiving attention so we do not want her completing with a baby and would suggest she be adopted into a home with kids over 10 years old please.  She is not aggressive, she is just an attention hound.

Kaily

She is 4 years old, very calm and extremely quiet and her love has no boundaries.  Kaily would be your best friend forever.  Please give her a chance and meet her, Her loving attitude and pleading eyes will melt your heart.

Kaily

Jack Boxer

Jack Boxer -- Rescued

Jack is a 2 year old Boxer who craves attention and his previous owners traveled too much to give him the time he needed.

Jack Boxer

Don't be sad Jack, I promise I will find you a new home with a family who will love you as much as you will love them back!

Jack Boxer

Jack is already perking up because he has someone to talk to and that makes him feel special.

Jack Boxer

Jack just finished eating and he thought his meal was delicious!

Jack Boxer

Okay Jack, that is a better pose.  Hopefully someone will fall in love with you and adopt you.

Jack Boxer

Where would you like to go Jack?  Would you love to go for a walk?  Sounds good, let's go!!!

Warehouse Family

Buster

Buster is 5 weeks old and I just got him on Saturday, July 15th.  He has 2 siblings and a mother I will be getting this week.  Buster weighs 1 lb right now and will be ready for his new home in 6 weeks.  We are taking applications on him.

Buster

Buster is living the life considering where he came from.  An animal control officer got Buster when he was following his mother.  Sleeping on a real bed in peace and safety.

Buster's Mom & 2 Siblings

Mom & 2 siblings

This is where Buster came from.  His mother gave birth and put them under those steel beams.  He has 2 siblings that I will be getting tomorrow, Tuesday 07/17/2018.  I am praying Mom will jump in the back of the car after her puppies or at least get close enough for me to put a leash on her.  I have been feeding them a long time.

Busters mom

Busters mom was actually dumped after ACS was too full to take her in, her owners dumped her on the street where I was feeding my normal feral strays.  Mom joined the pack & has been staying away from me except when it is time to eat!

Busters Mom & Dad

I am not sure what breed they are but those are his parent.  Daddy is the white one with brown spots.  He too was dumped but a week earlier than Mom.  They have been very good parents

Buster

Buster seems to be enjoying being rescued.  He is eating gruel, a concotion of wet puppy food, Gerber's baby Rice food and puppy replacement milk.

Acme Street Puppies

I Got a Girl!

I was able to rescue 1 little girl from under the steel beams today, July 17

Saved for 100 degrees

As I crawled under those beams to get this baby I was met with a horrible smell of her siblings who did not survive in this weather,  This little baby is covered in fleas and ticks.

Shelter for Homeless Puppies

These steel beams are extremely heavy but they offered these puppies shelter from the rain but not the heat.  Poor mama who was dumped did not know what to do with her babies,

I pray the last one is living and I can rescue tomorrow.

Such a Cutie

This baby is about 6 weeks old and suffering in the environment.  The most bothersome thing is that this location is across the freeway from the City of San Antonio's HIGH Kill Shelter and their officers drive down this street all day long and never bother to stop and help these dogs.

No More LItters

The rescue community continuously tries to educate the citizens that it would be best to spay and neuter their dogs.  San Antonio Texas has an overpopulated number of strays running the streets,  A lot of the dogs were dumped by previous owners, like the mother of this group.

I've Been Saved

It was my pleasure to save this little girl,
