Other Info :
No need to scroll any further! I think I’m your match! Hi there, my name is Rion (pronounced Ryan). The nice folks at Legacy Boxer Rescue are helping me start a new life! I came to LBR right before Christmas with a badly broken leg (my front, right leg to be exact). It was broken so badly that I needed to have surgery…can you believe that?! I had my fancy surgery on 12/23 – I have a plate in my leg now!! My total recovery time for my leg is about 8 weeks. Once I recover from that, I need to take the “No Baby Pledge” and get neutered. My foster parents think I will be ready for adoption mid-to-late February.
Now that we’ve gotten the minor details out of the way, let me tell you about myself! I am 7 years young. You wouldn’t believe it though…I love to play! I am dog friendly, but I prefer dogs my own size. I currently live with two other Boxers and a Boston Terrier mix, and I love them all! I also live with a toddler, and guess what? I’m kid friendly! I prefer humans to other dogs. Let’s be honest…humans cuddle better than dogs. When I can use my ninja moves to get on the bed, I am a huge BED HOG! My foster parents say I am such a good boy. I’m crate trained, but it takes me a little bit to wind down when I get in. Because I’m 7, I’m potty trained; I haven’t even had any accidents in my new environment! I’m not the best on a leash, so my new family will need to help me with that. Foster mom and dad told me they can’t work on it with me right now because I’m on restricted activity due to my fun, peg leg. I wouldn’t do great in an apartment situation because of this. Speaking of housing arrangements…I will need a backyard with a taller fence. My previous owners said that I might be able to jump over a 5’ fence.
I hope you love me just as much as I already love you! I’d love to get to know you and maybe become part of your family. Ask my friends at Legacy Boxer Rescue if you can get to know me some more. I can’t wait to meet you!
