This is an unbelievable yet typical story.
No wonder I prefer the company of animals...
A nice woman I know named Kelly asked for my help
in finding a responsible home for
a nice, young boxer she just rescued.
Her email to me is below:
This poor dog has been through so much. Two families have "gotten rid of him." The second couple had him for only 4 days.
I am sure you must be thinking, so what is wrong with this dog?
WELL I CAN ASSURE YOU THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH BUDDY LOVE!
He is a 15 month old absolute doll.
He is fully vetted, gets along with other dogs,
is fine with kids, and seems to be housebroken, so far.
I have had him since last Sunday.
The first family who had him bought him as a puppy. A few months later, they had a baby. They were worried that Buddy Love would jump on the baby, so they chained him to a dog house. Can you imagine chaining a boxer up over the winter to a dog house? What idiots!
A little over a week ag o they gave him to a young guy and his girlfriend who had just moved in together. They already had a 3 months old boxer and thought cool, they can play together. They called me after having Buddy Love only four days. He played too rough with their 3 month old boxer, the guys said, and when they called the first family to take him back, Buddy Love's first family said "No, we won't take him back."
"Why won't anyone love me?"
Well, the young guy was pissed off that Buddy Love's first family wouldn't take him back, after promising they would if things didn't work out, and he told me he worked 10 hours a day, six days a week at JEEP. He said he didn't have time to f ind a home for this dog (Buddy Love), that it wasn't his responsibility, it was Buddy Love's first family's responsibility, and that Sunday was his only day off.
He said that they wanted him gone that day, and were going to have him euthanized "one way or the other" if I didn't take him.
I don't think these people should be allowed to have children,
let alone a boxer, and it is obviuos
that they know nothing about boxers.
So far Buddy Love has not pottied in my house and he gets alone good with my dogs. He loves my kids and in fact he stands in the hall when Morgan goes into her room and will cry until she comes back out. He is a little skinny, he needs to put on some weight. He had frontline and heartworm in the bag that come with him. He does have lots of energy but that is a boxer thing, nothing that would make him out of control.
He is not food aggressive and honestly, Barb, other than havi ng boxer energy, he is just fine in our house. He is out with my small do
