BOXERS IN NEED!
The following boxers need you. They are currently in local shelters or in homes that can no longer care for them for whatever reason. LBR has been asked to help them, but we cannot take them into our program because our foster homes are full. LBR provides all food, vetting a crate, and basic essentials like leash and collar, for each foster boxer - please help us help them!

Please note that in most cases, LBR has no other information about these boxers other than what's listed here.


There are also boxers in shelters that we do not have pictures of. We need all the help we can get at this point. If you are interested in fostering for us, please fill out our foster application by clicking here.

Other Info: ***URGENT OS TO SHELTER EU IMMINENT***

This is a medium sized 7 year old unaltered fawn female Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. She is not deaf. She was not too interested in the shelter worker or evaluator. She was too busy smelling where other dogs had been. She didn't mind being stopped and petted. No problem with examining teeth, ears or nails. No kisses or nub wags. Not jumpy. She pulled on leash. I think she would be good with children. She totally ignored the barking and growling in kennels as we walked by. She didn't show any interest in a smaller dog brought to the exercise area next to us. She did not follow any commands. I was unable to cat test. She had one small spot of missing hair. I saw callous' on all legs. Her hair is dry. No noticeable lumps, bumps or tags. This sweet girl had me in tears when I left. As I was leaving she jumped up in her kennel and whined. This baby was a owner surrender to the shelter on 10/15 WITH THE REQUEST THAT SHE BE EUTHANIZED BECAUSE OF HER AGE. She has had multiple litters of puppies, and not cared for. She needs groceries. The vet would not euthanize right away, and wanted to give her a chance. Doubtful she will make adoptions. Rescue is her best hope of survival.

Other Info: ***SUPER URGENT DUE TO FULL SHELTER AND AGE***

This is an approximately 6 yr old medium size un-altered flashy fawn male. He has natural ears, a docked tail, and is not deaf. He weighs approx. 48lbs, and looks about 10lbs underweight. This cute little guy came in wiggly and super excited to see me. He came up to me like he already knew me, very loving and lots of kisses. Overall he is a very sweet older boy who needs someone to love and to love him. This guy is very gentle, and I think he would be good with kids of any age. He only jumped up when he was told to do so. As we were walking him around the other dogs, he only started barking when the others were barking. He did not show knowledge of any commands, but his leash walking was very good. We were unable to perform a cat test. He has a bump on the right side of his muzzle, but I was not able to see it clearly enough to determine what it was. The end of his tail is missing hair, along with hips and elbows. Nothing a little TLC can’t fix. He is off hold Wednesday 10/22 and will be SUPER urgent at that time.

Other Info: ****URGENT OS DUE TO BROKEN LEG***

This 6 month old female was surrendered to the shelter due a broken leg that her owners could not afford to fix. She needs medical care ASAP. She was very sweet even though she is in obvious pain.

Eval: This is a 6 month old spayed flashy fawn female with natureal ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Such a sweet little girl. She was happy and enjoyed the company, even though she was in obvious pain. Seemed very friendly. Unsure of jumpiness bc of broken leg. Did fine with my 3 yr old. I kept daughter at a distance for the most part, but pup leaned into her hand when she came up. Unable to test with other dogs, but given her age, I am betting she would be fine. Unable to test leash walking given broken leg. Unable to test with cats, but there are cats just across from her,and she didn't seem to notice them. Swelling to back left leg and some road rash to abdomen. In obvious pain. So sweet.

Other Info: ***URGENT IN FULL SHELTER***

Star is a 5 year old spayed small pound fawn female with natural ears and a docked tail. She is not deaf. Star is a silly, happy-go-lucky girl. Star was surrendered to the shelter by her owners because she became possessive of the new baby. She was very excited to see the shelter worker when she was taken from the kennel. When the dogs in the lobby barked she got a little over excited but still responded to the shelter worker's voice. Once outside, she ran around and was having a blast. Despite her excitement, she did not jump on me or the shelter worker unless invited. She seems very respectful of human space so I think she would be fine with kids. She supposedly lived with kids in her previous home. Star is kenneled with a younger male lab and has not had any issues. The shelter staff said she has been good with all dogs she has met. Star sat and came on command but did not respond to any other commands. She pulled quite a bit on the leash when the shelter walked her around. I was not able to cat test her. Star has thinning fur on her back, sides and hind legs. She also has a sore on her left hip that needs some attention. Her owners stated she is spayed. This is a very sweet girl who is adorable. I think she is just what our adopters are looking for in a female boxer. She's silly, energetic, and curious but still has good manners. The shelter states she is 60 pounds, chipped, up to date on shots and HW negative.

*Update 10/21: Adoption fell through as he is heart worm postiive :( The shelter had some adoptions this weekend and have an empty run they can put him in for a short while, but he is still in dire need of rescue.* This unaltered boy has natural ears and a docked tail, and his coat is a reddish fawn full flash. He was polite, not a jumper, wanted to give kisses, was calm while I ran my hands over him, and found zero lumps, bumps, or knots. Overall a very healthy looking 65-70 lb 2-3 year old boxer. He does not pay attention to other dogs, but IS NOT cat friendly. Only command he paid attention to was sit.He is a beautiful dog, and if my dog was not aggressive toward other dogs I would think about adopting him.

Eval by another group: Went out to visit the male at the shelter. He is a taller boy about three years old with a docked tail, natural ears, unaltered and weighs in around 70 pounds. He was shaking a bit when I was petting and feeling around on him, maybe a little scared. He looked nice, no lumps or bumps only a few calluses. I think he is quite a handsome flashy fawn! He is strong with muscular legs, but did good on his leash. I was told he was not fond of kitties and he DID stare them down thru the window of the cat room while I was trying to take his picture. The shelter worker said he was not aggressive towards any of the other dogs and seemed housebroken. He was a good boy and knew "sit" but that was the only command he responded to. My son went out to the shelter with me today and I feel this guy really is a "man's dog". He gave Beau boxer hugs and kisses. Once again, I am surprised that no one has called looking for this stray!

Other Info: Harley is a medium sized 2 year old unaltered fawn female with natural ears and docked tail. She is not deaf. Very sweet, affectionate, not timid. She would be good with kids of any age, she was not jumpy at all . She does fine with other dogs, she is not separated at all. She is in with her six puppies and has had no issues with other dogs. She knows sit. She walked fine on a leash. No cat test performed. She has some hair missing on her back, she has been laying on the concrete with the puppies and they are like pressure sores on her vertebrae due to her being extremely skinny and laying on the concrete.

Other Info: Santa is an 8 year old unaltered brindle male with natural ears and a docked tail. At a healthy weight he should be 70 pounds. Santa is being surrendered because he was the owner's husband's dog. He passed away in July. The owner is allergic to him and doesn't want him and doesn't have time for him. She has a special needs daughter that needs her full attention. He used to stay inside free to roam the house but now he's mostly kept outside, there is a dog door but he had a full set up outside. He is not crated. He is super social, great with all people and adores kids of all ages. He 'barked' at me when I came in but he was just 'talking'. He was very sweet! She said he does fine on walks when he see's other animals and people. We were in the front yard and he was off leash and 2 teenage boys walked by and his ears perked up but he stayed where he was. He is house trained and not crate trained. Santa behaves fine for bathing and grooming. They never cut his nails. His nails look perfect, she said it's from his frequent walks. They do walk him but lately he doesn't get much attention at all. Typical 8 year old young at heart boy. He was excited and jumpy when I first got there because I was giving him lots of attention. When I told him down, he got down. He wanted to sit in my lap. Once I had been there for a little, he was calm and laying on the floor. Santa is not possessive with his toys. He eats dry food. He knows the typical commands; sit, stay, come here, get down, outside, etc... Owner just talks to him like a person and he listens. If he's out front without the leash and wonders to far she asks if he wants peanut butter and he comes back. Owner states his leash walking is fine, he tugs a little but not much. No bad behaviors. When he decided not to listen to her, she just turned his body to get him going where she wanted. She was very calm, not physical and he doesn't act like he's ever been mistreated. He would be just fine if anyone took a rawhide or his food bowl from him. He does 'talk' (bark) for attention an whimper when he wants more attention, so I'm thinking no apartments. I could see he might have some separation anxiety when/if he gets a foster home, just becase he's been with them his whole life. He is up to date on vaccinations as of August 2014. Per owner, he hasn't had heart worm prevention probably since June. He was a total sweetheart! CAT friendly! He lives with a cat and was great with it, used to live with another dog but she's already gotten rid of it. She would like him out ASAP, so I'm afraid we may see him in the shelter soon. I asked her to give us time (if we're able to help) but I could tell she doesn't want to wait too long. She said he doesn't go on car rides much but when he does she can tell they're not his favorite. I asked about any other quirks and she said not anything she could think of. The owner said he's healthy. I noticed he was having a hard time going poop and had a little urine leakage after he was done going potty. Also, he's pretty underweight, I could see all of his ribs, spine and hip bones. She said he started losing weight after her husband passed. He has a HUGE bowl of food & water so I know he has access to eat/drink. It could be depression or maybe even an obstruction?? I noticed his anal area was swollen but that could just be more visible due to being underweight?

Other Info: JJ is a 4 year old large sized unaltered fawn male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. "JJ" originally belonged to the owner's son, who moved out of state in February. The new owner and his wife are moving into Dallas to be closer to their jobs and they plan to get an apartment. The current owner does not like animals inside his home. JJ lives strictly outdoors at all times. Prior to February when "JJ" lived with his former owner he was kept indoors with free range in the house. "JJ" has no problems getting along with anyone of any age. He also gets along with new dogs. Since he is a jumper he would not be good with small children, even though he lived with small children prior to February. "JJ" does not like feline friends. He is housetrained. He has never been in a crate. "JJ" has never had a bath or a nail trim since living with new owner. "JJ" lives in a 15x15 fenced run 24/7. He and his companion are let out to run with the other dogs twice a day when the male owner is home; which is only on the weekends. "JJ" has a lot of energy. He does not play rough but does bounce/jump around a lot. He did play with his companion as well as the other two dogs that live there. He is not possessive with toys. He is free fed Pedigree dry dog food. He was taught to sit and shake from his previous owner. His behavior on a leash is excellent. For discipline, owners use a verbal "no" with the hand sign for down. His jumping is all he ever needs discipline for. There are no issues with high value items being taken away from him. The jumping is an ongoing thing and "JJ" is aware that he is not supposed to jump so I believe that he can be broken of this. "JJ" has learned to open the gate to his pen by jumping on it and boxing at it. The owner has to prop ties on the gate as well as use a wire to secure it. Also, "JJ" is a car chaser. Cats will be chased down by this boy so it is best they just not be in the picture. His last vaccinations were two years go. "JJ" and "Tyson" (also being surrendered – BIN 14656) have been together for almost their entire lives. "JJ" was adopted when he was 6 months old to be "Tyson's" buddy. They are each other’s opposites and for that reason in itself I hope that these two boys are not taken away from each other. "JJ" is a fun loving boy. He does not know a stranger and as long as you are not a cat he will get along with you. He loves to ride in cars, as well as chase them. He is very gentle when taking treats and that is about the only time he will slow down. He did live as an inside dog for most of his life so I am sure it will not take much time for him to get back into the hang of that life style. He will probably be your best friend for just letting him be by your side. He currently he lives in the country where gun shots and thunder storms are normal. Neither affects him. When we drove up and approached his run he did not even bark at us, just nub wags and he was jumping on the fence to be let out. He is slightly underweight and I can tell he is dealing with fleas.

Other Info: Tyson is a 4 year old average sized unaltered brindle male Boxer with natural ears and docked tail. "Tyson" originally belonged to the owner's son, who moved out of state in February. The new owner and his wife are moving into Dallas to be closer to their jobs and they plan to get an apartment. The current owner does not like animals inside his home. Tyson lives strictly outdoors at all times. Prior to February when "Tyson" lived with his former owner he was kept indoors with free range in the house. "Tyson" gets along with everyone but feline friends. He does not jump and is rather laid back, especially compared to his companion. He is house trained but has never been in a crate. "Tyson" has never had a bath or a nail trim since living with new owner. "Tyson" does LOVE the water. He will lie in baby pools, go for swims in real pools, and likes to be sprayed with the hose. "Tyson" lives in a 15x15 fenced run 24/7. He and his companion are let out to run with the other dogs twice a day when the male owner is home; which is only on the weekends. "Tyson" is low key and just likes to follow the other dogs around. He is very loving and he liked to give the other dogs kisses. Entertainment to "Tyson" would be to go for a swim. He knows how to climb a ladder to get into a pool and will help himself. He also likes to lie in baby pools. Tyson is not possessive with toys. He is allowed to free feed on Pedigree. He was taught to sit and shake from his previous owner. His behavior on a leash is excellent. "Tyson" never has to be corrected. If he did then it would be with verbal and hand cues. There are no issues with any high value items being taken away from him. "Tyson" has no real issues at all. He will follow his companion when he chases after cars. He does not like cats and will chase them. His last vaccinations and HWP were two years ago. "Tyson” and "JJ" (BIN 14655 – also being surrendered) have been together for almost their entire lives. "Tyson" was purchased from a breeder at 6 weeks of age then "JJ" was adopted when they were both about 6 months old. They are each other’s opposites and for that reason in itself I hope that these two boys not be taken away from each other. "Tyson" is just a laid back sweetheart. He likes to be around his dog friends as well as human friends. Car rides and water are his two loves, with butt scratches not far behind. He did live as an inside dog for most of his life so I am sure it will not take much time for him to get back into the hang of that life style. He just wants to be a part of the family again. "Tyson" is already micro-chipped but his previous owner has all of the paper work. Currently he lives in the country where gun shots and thunder storms are normal. Neither affects him. He did not even bark when we drove up. "Tyson" has very thick, dry skin on his head, rear end, and all four of his feet. He has a very thin, dull hair coat and his mucous membranes are very pale. I can tell he is dealing with very bad flea allergies. He seemed to be very congested with snot in his nose. You could hear it when he breathed. He also has opaque, pencil eraser sized dots on both of his eyes. When we approached his run I could tell he did not feel that great. He did not get excited like his companion did. He just sat there. He did liven up when he came out to play and meet us.

Other Info: Sissy is a 10 year old unaltered fawn female with natural ears and a natural tail. She is being surrendered because her owner travels too much. She is crated while he is gone, 8 to 10 hours. She does great with all people and kids. Owner has a young son. Dog friendly with all dogs per owner. She is house and crate trained, in a wire crate. Sissy does well with bathing, vet does nail trims. She walks and runs outside for exercise, but she sleeps most of the day. She likes to just lay around per the owner, she seemed excited and playful when I met her. She is not possessive with her toys. She eats dry pedigree healthy longevity. She knows sit, stay, come, shake. She pulls some while leash walking (owner uses pronged collar). Doesn't really misbehave, owner says he uses verbal corrections. Sissy would have no reaction if owner or stranger or even another dog tried to take away her food bowl or a rawhide. She barks sometimes at people outside. She is up to date on vaccinations as of 07/14. She is on the injection heart worm prevention, given to her by the vet, owner said he had never given it to her. Sissy had one small skin tag on I believe the right side. Also has a small bump on front right leg close to paw that I think needs to be looked at. One of the nipples near tail end of the dog had what looked like it had a swollen mass underneath it, pretty decent sized. She is a very sweet dog and knew sit and shake and down. She just wanted to love on me and get attention. Her coat was very soft! There is nothing that makes her act differently than normal and she has no know illnesses or injuries.

Other Info: Maximus (Max) is a 6 month old white neutered male with natural ears and a docked tail. Max is a puppy and jumps up on their 3 year old daughter, does occasional counter surfing, needs more exercise because he gets very excited with the family and rambunctious. He stays on the leash all the time when the owner is home and is crated for bed and when they are away. He's very friendly to everyone, just very puppy and doesn't know his strength so would be better with a little bit older children. Almost house trained but does still have accidents. He is crate trained, but needs locks on the crate. He has a large wire crate and no damage was noted - she says she uses an extra lock. He goes to Dirty Dog for nails and baths but he's fine with touching his paws, legs and she said she has done his nails before with no issues. He's fine with bathing. The yard he's in now is almost all pool. They do the dog park occasionally but I believe he needs much more exercise and more walks. He was very calm and very well behaved with me. Owner said he is calm with her alone too but went crazy when her daughter and husband got home, just excited and happy but keeps knocking the 3 year old over. He's just a puppy. He is not possessive with his toys at all. He eats dry Purina Puppy Food. He went to Man's Best Friend and still goes for refreshers. They said it didn't really work, but he does know sit, down and other basics. He walks very well on a leash for a puppy and the owner said he doesn't have a problem with other dogs on the walk or otherwise. He loves other dogs. He's amazingly calm for a 6 month old puppy. When he gets the puppy craziness going, she says she pulls out the list and begins commands. If he gets ahold of something he shouldn't, she just redirects as you would with a toddler. He has no issues of resource guarding with anything. He jumps on people, mouth jousts just like any 6 month old puppy. The only thing indicated was that he doesn't like much to be alone. She works from home a lot. He is up to date on vaccinations and heart worm prevention. This is one of the sweetest, most handsomest puppies I've ever met. He's so soft and the pictures don't do him justice. I walked him, and he walked perfectly with me, sat and downed when asked. He was very calm and sweet, and I was able to touch him from head to toe including checking his teeth with nothing but cute puppy silliness. He does definitely need more exercise and less confinement, and that is the reason the owners are giving him up. They don't feel they have the proper environment for him. They have had him for 2 months and said he was in a climate controlled building with the breeder so very little human contact. He needs just a little tweaking on his training, but this is a very nice dog!!! I love hearing he's so good with other dogs. He is a total doll!!! Owner said he has no fears at all.

Other Info: Tessie is a 50 pound 2 year old spayed brindle female with natural ears and docked tail. Her owners got her from a breeder and are surrendering her after some behavior exhibited when they brought a new baby into the home. She's become protective of their 19 day old infant and bit their almost 7 y/o son who was standing next to the baby swing. She came from across the room and bit hit nose - 1 deep scratch on one side and a puncture wound on the other...the bridge of his nose was bruised. The owner’s son is now nervous being around Tessie now and they are concerned about the son & baby's safety. Tessie has been giving the mother (Tracie) “the stare” ever since the baby came home. Before the baby came she was the son’s buddy and she adores the dad and was happy around mom. She is a daddy's girl and they are heartbroken to surrender her. She gets along great with their male Boxer Titan (a LBR Alum) and her behavior toward him has not changed since the baby came home. She stays mostly indoors and they have no dog door. Dad goes into yard with them and plays ball. Now they are cautious about her being near the son and baby but otherwise Tessie roams the house. Tessie is very friendly but extremely excited around adults (visitors & strangers). She jumps on people and hugs them. Eventually she'll sit but she is a love hound and likes to give kisses. She is fine with new dogs (reasonable, neutral intros). She also has a Golden Retriever cousin. yes. She is house and crate trained. When the owner is away at work (7a to 5p) she stays in the wire crate. She can be crated for 10 hours. She goes in crate "go to bed or night-night” with a cookie. She stands by door when she has to go out and potty. Her owner doesn't bathe her often, but when she gets in the tub she stays there. She is fine with brushing. The vet trims her nails and she does well. She gets a daily walk between 1/2 and 1 mile. They play ball with her in the yard. She is very high energy. She plays a little rough and loves to box, wrestle, chase & mouth joust with dog brother. No aggression, not even with elk antlers. She eats Pedigree Adult Small Bites kibble. No canned food. They trained her themselves (positive+ training, not physical with her). They got her when she was 6 months old. She is a door bolter & jumps on people. She does not jump on kids. She pulls on the leash in the beginning - not so much interested in sniffing as she is walking, and walks nicely by the end of the walk. They use a body harness. For discipline they use verbal corrections & a water spray bottle. No physical corrections. After she bit their son they put her outside and then put her in the crate while they went to the Care Now center. Mom or dad can take away her food. The son has taken away a ripped up toy from Tessie with his mom's direct supervision (no issues when he did). She jumps on people, is kind of needy for attention but otherwise she is a lovely dog. She is very sweet. She is current on her vaccinations and HWP. They give Sentinel. Last given 10/1. She gets excited on walks when she sees a rabbit or squirrel. Owners recommend no kids under 5 (even though she doesn't jump on their almost 7 y/o - he was 4 y/o when they got her as a puppy. For safety's sake (because of jumping) I'd say a boxer savvy kid or kids 10 & older. She loves kids and is very nice (not jumpy) when kids come over. She worries around the new baby and possessive of her. She doesn't like being outside when the neighbor is mowing his yard. She bites at the vacuum cleaner. She is fine going to the vet and getting in the car. She is not thrilled by thunder, lightning and fireworks but doesn't freak out. Tessie hurt her right knee last summer while playing with Titan. Vet said she sprained it. When she & Titan play rough she'll limp a bit but then the limp goes away after a few hours. The owner sent 2 photographs so I did not take any.

Other Info: ***Update 9/20: Owner still has her, but needs to surrender her soon. She will let us know if she goes to a shelter so we can try to help from there*** Zora is a tall 7 year old spayed sealed brindle female with natural ears and docked tail. She has a good weight on her. She is being surrendered because her owner has a 14 month old child and she does not want dog hair on the floor where the child crawls. Zora is very vigilant and protective of mom and baby when dad not home. NO aggression or protectiveness with mom. When owner is away, she is kept inside uncrated. Per family she is not destructive but will get into trash. When dad came home she was bouncy, playful, happy. I observed the baby grabbing her jowlies and Zora just ignored it. Wen we first came to the house dad was not home. Zora gave warning growls when we entered the house, but not the attack kind. She then went to the couch where the baby was sleeping and laid in front of the couch right there. Mm was on the couch by her baby and if i approached the couch I got warning growls, but no overt signs of impending attack. I was finally able to sit on the couch next to her, but not real close to the baby. She watched me very closely with ears back, but no more growling. I was able to scratch by her nub and slowly work my way up to neck and ears. She continued to watch me very closely. I DID NOT attempt to touch the child. She is house trained and crate trained. She does well for bathing and grooming, loves the water. She is good for nail trims. She gets exercise by walks, going to the dog park and playing in the back yard. Normal energy level. She is not possessive with toys. She knows the commands for high five and sit. Very little pulling per owner when walking on a leash. She is disciplined by verbal correction. Vaccinations were done in July of 2013 and she is not on heart worm prevention. Zora does not appear the stated age. She is in very good shape, well mannered and appeared just a typical boxer after dad came home. I suggest that any foster home or adoptive home with children (especially small ones) be very aware how protective she is. I do not feel that she is aggressive at other times. I feel she would be a good family member for anyone also, per the mom, this protective behavior just started when the baby was born.

Other Info: Wrigley is a little taller than average 70 pound neutered fawn male with natural ears and docked tail. His owners want to surrender him because they have three young boys and their after school activities keep the family too busy now. They feel Wrigley deserves to be with a family that can spend more time with him as he loves being with people. When owner is home, Wrigley stays inside free to roam house. When owner is away, Wrigley stays mostly inside, but they may leave him out in the yard if the weather is nice. He was not visible when we first entered the home, as they closed the interior doors when we arrived and he happened to be in one of the rooms. When he did come out he just pranced over to us wiggling his tail and snuggling into us for petting. He did not jump and seemed very gentle upon greeting him. He is house trained and rings a bell when he needs to go out for potty break. They don't crate, but when he goes by their parent's house he is in a wire crate. He doesn't care for the crate, but will go in when told. He gets baths outside with a water hose. He loves the water and will play in the sprinklers, or anything that has water coming out of it. Owner has never trimmed his nails. For exercise he plays with the family, their Chihuahua, or in the backyard. High energy - loves to play ball, chase his tail and the laser light. He was having a blast, but could accidentally knock over small children in his excitement. Wrigley spent a lot of time chasing his tail, but the owner said he mostly does it for extended lengths of time when strangers are around. Did not seem toy possessive. Eats Beneful brand dry dog food. He knew sit when they first got him at age 1 1/2. They have taught him shake and down. Owner says he pulls a little on the leash. Owner uses verbal correction, but they really never had to discipline him. If they tell him "no", he understands what that means. Owner said he may have lightly swatted him on the tail once. Owner says he will let you take food or toys away from him without any issues. He jumps at fence and barks when he hears people, or other dogs on the other side. He has gotten along with all the dogs he has met except for a neighbors Great Dane. Not current on vaccinations. Last vetting done in January 2013. Not on heartworm prevention. Last given in March 2013. The volunteers did not observe anything that concerned them about his behavior. Wrigley was very friendly and leaned in for petting. He did get excited and jump up on their lap to give kisses, but got down when they said "no". He is protective of the kids if he hears a male at the door. Not aggressive, just positions himself between the kids and the stranger until he knows they are okay. No known illnesses. Has some chipped teeth and a soft squishy mass on upper right portion of left hind leg. Owner said it just appeared one day a few weeks ago and just keeps growing. He let the volunteers touch, squeeze and feel it with no reaction.

Other Info: This is Gus. He is your typical 11 month old boxer puppy to the core. Active, bouncy, sweet and goofy. Gus currently lives with 3 little girls age 5, 3 and 2. He's does very well with them and does not jump on them that I observed like he does with adults. He's incredibly tolerant of them while they pet, pull, crawl and love all over him. He is house and crate trained and is said to be perfectly quiet in his crate all night. Does know sit and will allow you to take treats, toys or anything else he readily puts in his mouth away. He will need some continued work on his manners as far as jumping, mouthing, and putting everything he can find in his mouth....just like a typical boxer adolescent. He's very loved in his home but with 3 very small children in the house, schedules just don't allow him the attention needed and deserved. He did at one time have an illness that was diagnosed at the ER as meningitis. He completed a heavy round of antibiotics and seem to have recovered well. He has only had one episode since where he seemed to lack energy and was given some left over antibiotics from the previous episode and seemed to return to normal the next day. Will need to further research what long term prognosis is. He is not neutered.
