    The newest member of our family

    This is D Bo who is actually my nephews dog but with his work schedule he could no longer care for him properly so when he asked if I could take him how could I refuse. Ofcourse my ole girl was not too happy at first but they are fast friends now. D is 1 yr and 9 months and just a pure joy, he keeps me laughing all the time. And he gets me up off my butt and out of the house to walk and exercise him which is all good for me. My DH travels for his job and I usually go with him, D Bo traveled very well, even better than Little Girl who is a veteran at traveling and loves it. He has adjusted very well. But then he was very used to me as I was around him alot as he grew. My nephew has had him since he was 8 weeks. I was not really ready for another dog but it seems they always adopt me when it is time as has been the case in all 3 dogs I have had. So we are embracing it and loving every minute of it.

    How sweet, he looks like a very nice dog. I'm so glad you took him.

    My girlfriend has a boxer that her owner couldn't take care of. Her name is Layla. She gets so excited when they come down my street because she knows where she is going. And she likes to box. My 7 lb.minpin and rat terrier have to go to their kennels when Layla is here because she is so big and could just step on my dogs. I live in a small town and all 20 dogs in town know my car because I have treats in my car all the time.

    He is a real beauty. My Grandad had a boxer when we were kids. Pepper was so gentle when rough housing with us.

    I like the way you posted them, first one, looks really sad. Like he is just on the way from his first home, then shows him happier in next picture, like, "Hey, this ain't so bad." And last pic, stretched out with his new pal enjoying new life. Furbabies, gotta love em.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    What a sweetheart. He is a beauty and I know he will be a precious member of your household. We had a Yorkie and a Maltese, but then acquired a Chihuahua rescue. All things rocked along, and I found a poor starving Pom/Yorkie mix in the middle of a very busy intersection. Of course, I stopped my car in heavy traffic and picked her up. After having her treated for mange, heartworms, intestional parasites, scabies and other good stuff, she has been with us for a year. All four of our babies are just that--babies. Gotta love our furchildren.

    Oh that is a beautiful dog Boxers are the best dog in the world The one I had travled well she went Over the road with us for 5 years I was sure to get her exercise everyday she thought she was a lap dog and was always setting on my lap when she could. Hard to believe but oneday for fun I put makeup on her had to buy her makeup because everyday she wanted what mommie had she provided us with many hoursof enjoyment. Her favorite thing in the world was to stay in a Motel, she always recognized a motel from a distance and if we were staying in one she was so excited. I really loved that dog. Now I have a pom not the same as a Boxer I still love her

    I love animals too, sometimes more than people. Every pet we have had are other people's through-offs. We have a dog and 4 cats right now. I am so glad D has gotten a good home.
