found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Twenty-two boxers were surrendered to a shelter and two of these boxers (Bootsi and Sneakers) came in with “Cherry Eye“. Surgery is required to fix this eye condition which would not have been treated at the shelter. We were asked if we could take both dogs into rescue, and we did not hesitate to agree.
Cherry eye is the term used for the prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid. Known by veterinarians as the nictitans gland, this gland aids in the production of tears. Surgical replacement of the gland in its proper location is the only acceptable treatment.
Neither Bootsi nor Sneakers are in very good condition, and they are extremely thin. Their ears were infested with mites and both were covered in urine and feces stains; we had them examined by a vet when they first came into our rescue and they are both being treated with antibiotics for an upper respiratory infection. They obviously were not well cared for and presumably came from another puppy mill-type situation. Both dogs will also need to be spayed.
Overall they are very well adjusted, considering their previous conditions and lifestyle. They seem to be excellent with other dogs and are friendly with people. Like most boxers, they are great in the car. It is apparent they have never lived in a home, therefore, we will be working on their house manners.
Sneakers and Bootsi are scheduled for a consult with an Ophthalmologist at Tufts Animal Hospital in early April. We will update both dogs with individual reports from their foster homes once they have settled in and adjusted. We are happy they are safe and receiving much needed attention.
