Ok...so I had Boxers when I was young and we wanted to get one for our little girl who just turned 2 on Aug. 7th. I decided I wanted to adopt instead of buying a puppy. I've looked and looked through Boxer Rescues. Most not wanting to adopt to us because our little girl is udner 5...even though she "hangs out" with a Great Dane, Lab mix, Beagles, etc. on a DAILY basis. Well we had put in our application at the local animal shelter last Sat. low and behold they called me today and had a full blooded Boxer! We get to pick him up tomorrow. He was an owner surrender because they didn't have "time" for him which is obvious by the looks of his nails and how dry his coat is! He is a 1yr old plain fawn male w/ natural ears and a docked tail. He fell in love with my little girl instantly. The feeling was deffinantly mutual!! His name is "Blaze" but we'll probably change it. He doesn't look like a Blaze to me. LOL I'm so glad to be a part of adopting an unwanted pet. It's like the old saying goes..."one mans trash is another mans treasure"! For all the others who adopt or foster ANY animal....a big thank you goes out! I'll post a picture once i figure out why I'm not allowed to post attachments. Ha!
