    Yesterday my husband and I went to the animal shelter and saw the sweetest Boxer Mix. He was in a cage all by himself. We looked around for a while thinking and trying to decide if we should rescue him. He is approximately six months old. We spoke to the volunteer and found out that today would be his last day. We made the decision to adopt him. He was fixed at the vet today and I picked him up just a few minutes ago. He is so sweet and knows a few basic commands and goes to potty outside. He is so skinny and scared, I am so glad that we saved him. He has a few scars on his face. Here is the link to a picture.

    What a lovely boy :) How wonderful that you have adopted him. Have you decided on a name yet?

    Yes, we named him Novi (Nov-I). We actually named him after a brand of Supercharger, it seemed to go really well with our cat "Paxton" :)

    We think he is a Boxer/Pit mix. You could not ask for a sweeter puppy. :)
    Everybody hates & fears Pits so much around here, those poor dogs get such a bad rap because of people making them mean. :(
