JEFF - Dad to Keebler Almost a year of living in Texas and working from home, I felt like something was missing. I started thinking it would be nice to find a dog that I could hang out with and leave the stresses of work behind at the end of the day. My first thought of what type of dog went right to a Boxer as I had known one when I was younger and she was a blast to play with and beautiful for sure! She was a flashy brindle named Molly that my aunt and uncle had brought by several times and up to the family cottage. So first step, find a Boxer rescue group knowing there had to be one in DFW that would have someone for me. I checked in November of 2009 and sure enough found Legacy Boxer Rescue among the top hits and started my research there. It didn't take long to zero in on a brindle boy named Keebler who was at the time 8 months old but appeared to me to be about 12 years old, this was my first encounter with a dog that had mange!! I literally followed his bio page every day watching for updates and as the photos appeared he grew more and more engrained into my mind. Next step, buy a house with a large yard that he could run and play in and this happened at the end of the year and I moved in January. Now that I could be really serious I applied to LBR and mentioned my interest in Keebler. I heard some of his story and then at a fund raiser event was finally able to meet him more than 4 months after I first saw him. I think some of the other volunteers that were there will tell you not only did I pick him out but he picked me :) Almost a year later and after a heart to heart with Keebler, we decided it was time to help another dog out and try our hand at fostering. Wouldn't you know, the first Boxer we get is a year old puppy with mange and he turns out to be the first rescue of 2011, Midas. Keebler has been as much involved with the fostering and care of Midas as I have and we're excited that his recovery will land him in a great home of his own. Fostering has been such a rewarding experience and I can't help but spread the word of how amazing it feels to help these Boxers find there spirit after such hard times and letting them find their forever families.
