We got our brindle boy Boo in November 2003, from the Tulsa Boxer Rescue. He was approx 1yr to 2yrs old, around 43lbs had mange and worms and was skin and bones, and his ears had never been cleaned or touched for that matter. The rescue said he came from a puppy mill in MO. When we brought him home he was so scared he would peek around everthing so his name wasen't real hard to figure out we call him peek-a-Boo. He was so sad he had never been in a house, loved or on the couch or even in a bed. He would haul butt if you even raised your hand to grab a pencil, it just broke our hearts that someone would treat a BOXER or any pet in such a way, sometimes I would cry just petting him or hugging him. I am sooo happy to say it took a while but the mange is gone along with the worms and "oh" those ears are clean. Went to the vet the other day for the rabies shot and a total care pkg, he now a whooping 65lbs!!! Our female boxer Belle loves him so much, she shows him the way in her sisterly boxer way.
