On D–Day, 2017, a small army of Legacy Boxer Rescue volunteers set out on a rescue mission to save a boxer on death row in a local shelter. Meet Eisenhower! This wonderful boy is a veteran back-yard dog who is now safe and comfortable in his foster home. Eisenhower, AKA Howie Wowie, is an amazingly calm boy for being only four years old. After a couple of days to decompress from his battle (shelter) trauma, Eisenhower’s sweet personality came shining through. He is such a smart boy! It only took a couple of days for him to catch on to house-breaking, and just a few minutes to figure out the dog door. Crate training only took a few days. He is a one smart boy and so eager to please. He has blossomed into a happy, fun boxer in just a few days.
Eisenhower is on the small side for a male boxer but he has enough boxer wiggles and tail wags for a boxer twice his size. Howie has graduated to being left out all night long with no accidents or problems. He loves having a dog door and being able to go outside (and come back inside) whenever he wants. Howie does not like to get his feet wet and hates going outside when it’s raining. He is a quiet boy, who seldom barks.
Howie is good with other dogs and is learning to play and run with his foster siblings; he would be good as an only dog or with a companion dog. He does not jump on people, sits calmly for petting and takes treats gently. Howie will pull a little on a leash at first, but relaxes after a few minutes. With a little more leash work and a few more car rides to help him understand that not all car rides end at the shelter, Eisenhower will be just about perfect. His foster mom’s favorite moment of the day is calling Howie inside to and watching a happy boxer run full tilt to come sit and get a treat. Spend 5 minutes with Howie and you’ll fall in love!
