Saying hello!

Meet Remmy, a three year old boxer boy. He's going to be staying with us for a while. We're going to foster him. He was picked up as a stray and taken to the humane society. He's been there since October 14th. He got neutered and was all ready to go to a new home but he got diarrhea.

Bad diarrhea. They couldn't adopt him out like that, and his time was just about up. A friend of mine (who is a boxer owner and active with animal rescue) contacted a boxer rescue group who agreed to sponsor him if she could find a foster home. That's where we come in!

We're going to take care of him and try to find the root of his issues. We're thinking at this point is colitis (like irritable bowel sydrome) which is controllable with diet.

Do you see his scar? He was once a stud dog for an irresponsible back yard breeder. Apparently his collar was too tight and begin to get embedded in his neck. Poor guy. And his ears are not in very good shape. Probably a bad crop job combined with fly bites.

This boy has had a rough life, though short (he's only 3). But he's sweet as pie. Loves to give kisses and get hugs. And he's fairly calm for a young boxer. And he's cute. Right? A little cute?

How could you not want to kiss that nose?

How awesome of you to do foster Remmy!! I fostered puppies (3 of them! In an apartment!!) while they were waiting to go on a Rescue Wagon.
