Chaos's Story...
3/18/10: Chaos is Rambunctious and Full of Puppy Pep

Chaos was surrendered by his owner who no longer had the time or the finances to keep him in the family. He was brought into our surrender program and was overdue for all vaccinations and routine medical care. His initial medical history showed a previous leg fracture that had only been splinted.

We immediately made an appointment to have Chaos see one of the trusted veterinarians who treat our rescue dogs. Chaos received a thorough exam which included his inoculations, heart worm test (negative) and within days was neutered.

We found out from his previous owners that Chaos was confined all the time and was, as one might expect, extremely rambunctious. No surprise….boxers are high energy and need to have lots of exercise with plenty of interaction. Since his foster family took him in they have worked on this diligently and he is doing much better. Chaos is a people dog. He loves attention and thrives on affection.

Here is a recent report from his foster mom:

“I picked up Chaos, a male flashy fawn, from the vet hospital after his neuter surgery. He is your typical one year old boxer full of high energy and lots of wiggles, jumping and kisses. Chaos rode well in the car. He met with our (almost) nine year old female boxer Zoe. They got along great. All Chaos wanted to do was play, play and play. He also met the rest of our family; my husband and our son. Chaos took very well to the both of them.

Chaos loves to play and have lots of attention. He's a leaner as well. He enjoys being the center of attention and is a giver as well as a receiver; receiving lots of rubs on his belly and returning the love by giving lots of kisses. Chaos was left alone in a room all the time (according to what we were told) thus any attention he gets he truly loves.

Chaos needs training on his pulling during his walks. He is very interested in all things going on around him when we are walking. I've purchased the ‘Premier No Pull Harness’ which has helped with his pulling. He does not seem to have had many walks in the past or association with being outside often. This pup loves going to the dog park. He craves playing with other dogs and does so very well. Chaos gets ‘upset’ when a dog leaves, especially the dog who is playing with him. Again, he is obviously starved for attention and social activity.

Chaos is a true joy to have in our home. He and my son love to play together, keep each other very occupied, and they have lots of fun. Chaos has no aggression with food, toys, dogs or people of any age. Chaos is a true boxer puppy full of energy, love and joy. He loved playing in the snow we had recently. He would place his whole face in the snow and then come up covered in the white stuff.

After having Chaos in our home for several days we had a terrible scare. Chaos had to be rushed to the hospital after repeated vomiting. We were concerned he might have some type of blockage and we were not taking any chances. The doctor gave him a lengthy examination, and took barium x-rays. They were not able to clearly identify that there was a blockage but he definitely had some type of gastric irritation. They treated his symptoms and watched him carefully for several days before they determined he was going to be OK. Luckily he did not need surgery.

Unfortunately that was not the end of his visit to the vet. As Chaos was recovering at the Hospital from his gastric distress he had a freak accident. Chaos fractured his pelvis. According to the hospital staff, Chaos chased a Hospital cat to the second floor. The agile cat ran up to a five foot ledge and Chaos tried to follow the cat. He scaled up the five foot wall ledge, and fell down to the first floor below before anyone could catch up to him.

Doctors stabilized Chaos and took multiple radiographs but the x-rays did not reveal any definitive damage. The x-rays were reviewed by an orthopedic specialist who also did not see a problem, however Chaos was still limping. The doctor decided to have two radiology specialists take a closer look and they both confirmed that Chaos had a slight pelvic fracture. According to the doctors, Chaos’ fracture should heal on it’s own with strict crate rest and he should not have any foreseeable problems or issues. He stayed under the vet’s care for several weeks and is now back home.

When I picked up Chaos from the Hospital the second time he was very excited to see me and I'm sure to come home. My son was missing him terribly. Daily he would ask for Chaos and questioned when he was coming home. We explained to him that Chaos had a big booboo and would be back home soon. When Chaos comes home he would need to stay in his crate for lots of rest so that his booboo on his pelvis would heal. My son said that he would be very gentle with Chaos and help him get better fast so they could play together soon.

Chaos is resting well and is so happy to be home. He still would love to play and be more interactive with my son, my boxer Zoe, my husband and myself. He loves getting loved on and petted. He craves his attention and giving his kisses. Time will help heal his fracture but in the meantime we keep Chaos company when he goes for short bathroom breaks and we have him next to us while we are all in the room together.

We will be following up with his Doctor in a few weeks. At that time, they will take more x-rays to make sure his fracture is healing properly and then I will receive his next course of home care instructions.”

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chaos, a North Haven Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer for sale in North Haven, or seeking a Boxer dog from a breeder in North Haven.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in North Haven already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a North Haven breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer breeders who help with Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in North Haven paves the way for another one to be saved.
