Our boxer is 7 or 8; he was a rescue and we love him dearly. Ollie is the ruler of the house, kind of like a toddler. He demands attention, and of course, we give it to him. Ollie has seizures and is on thyroid medication, is anemic, and the best friend of everyone at the Vets. We are lucky to have him. Boxers are the best dogs in the world!
