It was a few days before Christmas, and my family had been searching for a loving family pet for awhile after the death of our cat. We knew we wanted a dog, but after several trips to the local shelter it seemed impossible. I went to my aunt's Christmas party and met a woman who was trying to find a good home for a male 2 yr. old boxer. She told me his sad story. She said the breeders gave him to a man who left him outside 24/7 in all weather. She knew the breeders and that man. She told the breeders, and they took the boxer back. She offered to help find the dog a good home, and still is!! I really wanted to see the boxer. I went to the woman's house, and loved him so much, that I took him home a day before Christmas!! His name was Buddy, he was the runt, and his birthday is January 15th! I love him!!!
