A very sweet senior Boxer dog needing foster care in Alexandria VA and area, BJ is LOVE on four legs!
BJ is a really good dog. This 12 years young Boxer is about as nice a dog as you will find anywhere. He is good with people of all ages, including small children, others dogs, and cats. This handsome dog is very healthy, fully vaccinated, fixed, house broken, crate trained, leash trained and is very well behaved.
BJ’s owner is scheduled for a temporary move to Spain in early September, and although he would love to bring BJ along, the costs and potential risks to BJ’s health and well-being that a long flight in cargo and then a long period of quarantine would carry are more than his owner is willing to risk.
He is dearly hoping to find a dog lover or dog loving family who will take BJ into their hearts and home and care for him as if he were their own. BJ’s new family will receive a monthly stipend, all supplies and accessories, vet care costs and anything else that is needed for BJ. They will also receive the owner’s deep gratitude and friendship.

Cute BJ Story:
BJ was adopted. He as abandoned by his previous owner into the woods. I was able to rescue him thru the Internet after we lost our first boxer to cancer. BJ has been our son’s go to for law school exams and bar exams. Our son attributes his success in passing the bar to BJ. BJ has come a long way from when he arrived from Arkansas. He as mellowed and he is now the elder brother to a young boxer that our son received for his graduation in 2020. BJ gets excited to go on long rides and his desire is to one day catch a squirrel.
Why does BJ Need to be Fostered?
This is a very tough question to answer, yet I have to re-home BJ cause I am headed to Spain for 2 years. I would love to take BJ yet I have done the research on taking dogs of his size overseas. The cost to ship BJ is between 5K to 12k and right now and for the foreseeable future airlines have discontinued to ship big dogs overseas. United has cancelled its services and Lufthansa as placed a moratorium on large dogs to Europe until later in the year. Plus, housing in Europe is somewhat restrictive and are limiting in adding a dog to the lease. I also feel with BJ’s age the travel by cargo may affect him and I would not like loosing BJ.
BJ’s Perfect Foster Home Will Be:
I would appreciate someone that will care for BJ as we have. He is a good dog and has had a rough beginning. I have tried to give him a good and rich life and would like for him to continue to have a good life. I am happy to provide a stipend to the family that takes BJ. This way the family can be assured that he is provided for while I am in Spain.
