A Female Boxer presently Adopted
Kay here and now they promise ... third time lucky! Yep, I'm back. Here's a description of my dream home. A family, preferably with another dog to show me the ropes, who will accept me exactly as I am. I may become more demonstrative and affectionate in time and then again I may not. My Foster Mom thinks I am a wonderful girl -- quiet, undemanding, sweet. But you, the adopter, must remember my origins and be willing to accept me as I am -- quirks and all. In the meantime, I am quite content to stay with my Foster Family while I wait. Please read the last paragraph of my biography to understand my history.
Unfortunately, Kay was returned due to some health issues in the adoptive family. She is still as sweet and loving as the day she left. Now that she has had a taste of family life, she can't wait to get right back into it. If you want to give this deserving Boxer girl her next chance at a furever home, please fill in the Adoption Form.
Are you ready to give a lot of your time and provide an abundance of love to a dog who has not experienced much joy in her life? Well, here is one dog who needs you. Adopting an ex-breeding dog takes a great deal of patience and understanding, but the rewards are tenfold. In time, you will end up with the most loyal, loving and faithful friend you could ever wish for. To rehabilitate a former breeding dog, you’ll need persistence, consistency and a healthy dose of realism. Kay is nine years old and has spent her life making puppies for profit. Don’t think that many of these commercial breeders are doing anything illegal – in many cases, they meet the standards. That is not to say they are the standard that should be met but sadly they are within the law. The only reason they are open is because there is a demand – if people didn’t buy they wouldn’t sell and without profits, they would close. It is that simple. So, before setting out to “buy” that boxer pup, think of Kay and all the other dogs who have still not been set free.
Yes, she is 9 years old but she deserves at least a few good years being part of a family. There may be some toilet training to do until she gets the hang of it. Walks on leash are totally foreign to her; nonetheless, she loves the sound of a human’s voice, so gentle words will make her put one foot in front of the other. We cannot say that it will be easy, but it will certainly be gratifying. Please fill in the Adoption Form if you want to give Kay the only home she has ever had.
