BOXER Rescue South Africa is an NPO whose mission is to assist Boxer dogs in crisis through responsible re-homing as well as education of the Boxer community about the breed’s physical and mental requirements.

The organisation also teaches the importance of appropriate social and behavioural training, timeous sterilisation, vaccination and microchipping.

Debbie Wells of the organisation said their vision is to see that every Boxer dog will be viewed as a feeling, sentient being, a canine companion for a human who is fully aware of the breed’s physical and emotional needs.

“We aim to see a South Africa where every Boxer dog that is unregistered with either the Kennel Union of South Africa (KUSA) or the Federation of Boxer Clubs of South Africa (FBCSA) is sterilised by six months.

“In addition, sterilisation should apply to those registered Boxers carrying genes for inheritable conditions such as congenital heart disease, hip and elbow dysplasia and juvenile kidney disease,” she said.

She urged the community to not support backyard breeding (unregistered, no papers shown, unchecked rampant breeding with no thought for the health consequences - backyard breeders won't health-screen both parents).
