Why Adopt a Boxer?

From the minute they are born to their senior years, boxers remain exuberant and have a zest for life like no other breed. They are playful and full of fun. They are the most entertaining of breeds and will never fail to make you smile.

So why Adopt a Boxer?


It’s simple. Money will buy you a pretty good puppy but it won’t buy the wag of a Boxer Welfare Scotland’s dog’s tail.

Boxers end up in our care for numerous reasons but never through any fault of their own. More often than not it’s due to changes in a family’s circumstances, work commitments or sadly because their owners didn’t appreciate what a boxer required of them.

Unfortunately, we have rescued dogs from puppy farms, both the puppies themselves and the poor weak mothers who are constantly bred often within an inch of their lives. In some cases, our boxers have been so badly neglected or abused it becomes incomprehensible how anyone could treat a dog with such vile intent.

At Boxer Welfare our passion for this breed is what gives us the drive and the determination to find all the dogs in our care the very best home where they can live out their lives in the safe knowledge that they will be loved and cared for. Each of our adopted families’ lives has been enriched beyond measure because of the love of our dogs. As well as having a new family member you will have the feeling that you did something special by giving a boxer a second chance and the life they were always meant to have.

We guarantee that you will be adopted by the most irrepressible of clowns, the most intuitive of comforters, the most selfless of companions. These are unmistakably the characteristics of a boxer.
