    Hi There,
    We are fostering a boxer that is in need of a home. (We are in Maryland, but will travel with him to meet new owner) The people that owned him found him as a stray and had him about 3yrs, they also have 2 senior boxers. They took SeaBass(that's what they named him) in with the thought of finding his owner, or finding him a new home. They just could no longer keep 3 dogs ... We also found out that they were keeping him away from the other dogs and he was in a root cellar all daylong. We don't know why they wouldn't allow him up with the rest of the family. I don't know how you wouldn't get attached to him after 3yrs,but that's another story. Anyway, we are now fostering him.

    Found out that about 2yrs ago, they took him for a rabies shot and he bit the vet tech when she restrained him to give the shot...we took him to the vet for shots and bloodwork, and he was great until they tried to restrain him. At that point he pretty much tried to rip the face off the vet. They were prepared for any reaction though, and no one was hurt or bit. The vet was shocked at this, and said that she'd never seen a boxer react that way. Makes you wonder what the heck happened to him. After that incident , we decided this dog would need a very special home. A home that is willing to work with a trainer for this vet aggression issue. He hasn't shown any aggression other than this.

    Seabass is a great dog, estimated to be a senior, around 10yrs old VERY full of energy, but also will just lay at your feet. He just wants someone to call his own. He's up to date on shots, getting his teeth done next week. Neutered. Fawn in color. He's been around other medium/large dogs and he's fine. Haven't tried small dogs or cats. He's big, around 82pounds. We found out that he knows sit, stay, down, give paw. Totally house trained,crate trained. We've left him alone out of the crate for 8hrs at a time and he's fine too. He's quite, not heard him bark yet. Because of his history , we want to place him in an adult only or adult and older teenager home only.

    If you think SeaBass may be right for you, please post here and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks for your time reading this!
