I never had dogs growing up, but somehow after college I became the resident dog-sitter for all of my friends dogs. My favorite to dog-sit for was Diesel, a perfectly behaved boxer. After I passed my CPA exam I needed something to fill my free time and decided it was time for me to get a dog of my own. Boxers were the obvious breed choice since I loved Diesel so much. I didn't know any better and I ended up getting Dillon from a back yard breeder. After getting him I did as much research as I could about how to care for him and in the process I learned all about rescue. I moved into a house in June, 2011 and decided it was time to get involved with Legacy. It has definitely been an emotional experience, but it has also been an amazing one. I've shed tears of sorrow over boxers who were abused, starved, and abandoned. And I've shed tears of joy when they got their spirit back and found their forever homes. I've learned that being involved with rescue is insanely hard, but that it is also insanely rewarding and I'll be doing it for years to come. The people who I've met through Legacy are some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. They give everything they have (and then some) to save these boxers. I feel blessed that they have let me be a part of this group.
