The mother called several rescue groups for help rehoming this dog. She stated that the owner was an elderly woman that was in the ICU in Raleigh. How these folks found out about this dog is ?? unless they were friends with family member. Guessing this dog had never been in a position to interact with children. Mother stated that she got the dog last eve, Wed and dog was growling at children. Took dog to vet on Thursday am for vaccinations and the vet advised rehoming the dog. Why the family ever brought up the term "adopted" is very odd, since from private person. Fact that instead of leaving dog at vet or boarding dog since vet advised not to have around children, this family brought the dog home to be loose in house with their minor children. Mother very disconcerted that no rescue stepped up to take the dog. My guess is they weren't going to put anymore money into the dog, ie to board it, since now, instead of a "free" boxer, they had a dog with issues. Parents never called AC to pick up dog, yet expected that a rescue group would take on the responsibility. Also family had a boxer in the past of course, they had all the answers. Have probably never used a professional trainer because they have all the answers.
