Hello all, I am so excited to be joining this site. I have had two boxers in previous years and loved them both dearly. It's such a shame that their lives are so much shorter than a humans. Both of my boys who were both regular brindles are gone now. However, I decided to join this group because I am in the 5-6 month count down to bringing home my first actual puppy. I've always only ever gotten a dog that was a year old or older and I got on a breeder's waiting list a year ago to get a puppy from her. I was recently told that she has bred one of her dogs and it will be due in March. I will be bringing my little one home at the end of May, or beginning of June. In the meantime, I want to be able to prepare my home for the little one, and I think that this forum will help me be able to get my home ready for my puppy since like I said, I have only ever adopted dogs a year old or older in the past.
