Horrible organization, they adopted me a dog that due to being spayed by them now has intotience issues. She will just lay down and the per just runs out of her. She also has trampled my 5 year old daughter multiple times and knocked me down when I was 8 months pregnant. I contacted them 8 months ago to see if they could help me with this dog before I gave birth to my youngest daughter. Because we had fallen in love with her and did not want to give her up but I didn't trust her not to hurt my babies. The rescue told me i was on my own. This dog is also very destructive she has given us over 1000$ for of damage to our home. When i brought this up to them they told me that the dog was a perfect lady at the rescue and there was nothing they could do. I recently have contacted them because I can no longer care for this Nimal and her destructive nature. I gave birth to a baby girl in April and she has severe health issues and we cannot afford to continue to pay out for this dogs destructiveness and i don't trust the dog to not trample my children. The volunteer that contacted me was extremely rude and degrading to me. She told me how bad of a person and dog owner I was....if I'm such a horrible dog owner why did they adopt this dog to me in the first place? I will never deal with this rescue again. I'm still waiting on someone to get a hold of me to let me know what to do with this dog as I can no longer care for her. I have every single degrading email from them and will continue to report them and get them shut down. This rescue should not be open all they care about is the money and not the animals or the people adopting these animals.....please please think twice before adopting from them
Expect large vet bills. These dogs are not seen and or treated by a real vet before they are put up for adoption. Two dogs adopted one had mange one heart worm. Easily had to come up with a thousand dollars for each just to get healthy. One was blind in one eye I was told it was just a cataract. Do not support this dog rescue they do care about the dogs just about getting your money. Had to give one star to post this or it would have been 0
I have adopted 2 dogs from this rescue and both times everyone was nice and helpful. We love our boxers and won't use any other rescue.

Horrible organization!!! Do not ever attempt to adopt with this rescue if you even want to call it that. They are in it for the profit, and could care less about the dogs. Trying to get them shut down as of now. Do not support this horrible "non profit" they call a rescue!
The volunteers and adopters do an awesome job, but it seems that the "leadership" of PA Boxers has outgrown the service of rescuing boxers and are only interested in the profitability. The more fees collected by placing dogs without doing the homevisit or checking on the suitability of the dog to the new family just leads to more damaged boxers..so after several successful rescues from PA Boxer, I must withdraw my support and my donations
Our family adopted a dog from PA Boxer. She was instantly part of our family. The kids couldn't have been happier. It is wonderful to show our kids to give a dog a home. Especially since our Maggie is a senior. Thank you PA Boxers.
I adopted a boxer from this organization a few years ago. He is one of the best dogs I have ever owned. When I am ready for my next boxer I will be contacting this organization.
I adopted a Shih Tzu from PA Boxer on Saturday, 10/8/2016. I am writing this on 10/18/2016. The dog was described as timid. This was an understatement, but I was willing to give the dog a home. The dog was described as 2 years old and surrendered by the family. My vet estimates the dog at a minimum of 4 years old. If surrendered by the family, why did they not know the dog's name? The name Molly was given her by one of the children in the foster family. Additionally, the rabies certificate states an age of 3 weeks on 9/26/2016 Really?.
The day of adoption I was promised the vaccination certificate would be sent and it was not sent until I made repeated requests for the certificate and the rabies tag. I just received a PDF copy of the certificate by email today. I am still waiting for the rabies tag.
The dog was loaded with fleas when my wife and I picked her up. When we got her home, we took her straight to the bathtub and gave her a flea bath. Good thing!!! We then washed everything the dog had come into contact on the Sanitary cycle.
I have contacted the vet directly to get the straight information and they are sending me a rabies certificate, tag, and receipt for services as I am suspicious of whether they performed all of the vaccinations and flea & tick treatments they claim on a data sheet they provided about Molly on one of their forms. They provided no documentation from the vet.
I am not saying all adoption experiences with PA Boxers Rescue will be handled in this fashion, but I am saying be skeptical and careful. Know good questions to ask before you adopt, and ask them. Find a respected reputable adoption organization.
Best place to adopt a new family member! They were helpful matching us up to the right dog for us.
