I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
November 1, 2011- So I had a very difficult week...but things are turning around! My Mom got sick and couldn't take care of me anymore and there was no one else to take me. I was so sad to lose my home and my Mom! A nice man called the Animal Control Officer , who has a big heart took me in because it was too cold at the shelter for me to be outside. (I don't have too much hair you know and I was freezing!)....he was awful good to me and then he found The Boxer Rescue. I knew I'd be ok once I met that lady and then met my foster Mom. I also have a foster brother, who was just adopted by The Boxer Rescue! I had my first vet appointment and was scared with everyone touching me, but they said I did great! Turns out I am a healthy girl!!! Everyone was so glad. After some encouragement (I was scared and my Mom had to be in the tub with me...but I did it!)...I got a nice warm bath that smelled like mangos that night....I felt so great! My foster Mom and Dad said my hair is SO soft they cant stop patting me.... I love to have lots of affection! I really need to have a family that gives me lots of attention....I am a happy girl despite all I've been through. I'd probably be best in a one dog household - I tend to compete with my foster brother Chey and we have had a few scuffles....not to say I shouldn't have dog pals and outings mind you! I need that! I love to play outside - chase snowballs, love that jolleyball too....we have to take turns though! I am slowly getting used to being around other dogs....not too much just yet. I pull on the leash but do great with the gentle leader....I need to keep going on walks to get used to it....I have no idea what I'm supposed to do just yet and just so happy to be out! I have been told I am an EXCELLENT rider in the car....I'm glad people think so because I just love rides! I am well behaved in the house too. I can be trusted and I don't get into trouble. I am SUPER cuddly and would love to be able to nap on a nice couch or bed with you....please!? I have been told I will make a great family member to one lucky family! :) October 25, 2011 - Meet Lola! This beautiful girl is coming into the program as her family was unable to care for her anymore. She is approximately 2 years old and is a very sweet girl. She knows her basic commands, sit, down, stay and is full of boxer wiggles and kisses. Lola has been around other dogs and is currently living with a foster brother. She does seem to be a slightly dominant female, but also seems to take correction well. We have no history with her and small children or cats, so we will be looking to place her in a home with older kids and no cats. Lola is a bit over weight, so we will be getting her on a good diet and exercise program, as she did not get a lot of exercise in her previous home. She is a puller on leash, so she will need to be worked with on leash training and walking. Lola is crate trained, but seems to do just fine outside the crate (free roam) as well.
