Adoption Application Adoption Application Adoption Application Adopt The information that you are required to provide in the adoption application helps Boxer friends to place the right dog with the right family. For this reason it is very important that you fill out the application completely. PLEASE PLACE N/A IN THE BOX IF THE QUESTION IS NOT APPLICABLE TO YOU. INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. Minimum age requirement for those wishing to adopt a Boxer is 25. We do not adopt Boxers out of State and since we require home visits most of our dogs are placed within Broward, Miami-Dade and Southern Palm Beach counties. We do not ship our rescued boxers on airplanes. We cannot stress how strongly we dislike retractable leashes and disapprove of them from many reasons. Please note that we do not allow our dogs to go home with a retractable leash. Please provide a good quality 4 or 6 foot leash.
