Available for adoption through Northeastern Boxer Rescue
fostered in CT
3/29/05 - Max's Journey Has Ended
are very sad to report that Max is dead. He died
of a heart attack at a vet hospital where he was being boarded.
His foster home would not keep him and we had no choice but to board Max. A
wonderful family finally came forward to adopt him, unfortunately, time was not
on our side.
3/18/05 - Needs new foster home with no cats.
We refer to Max as "The Gentle Giant". He is very sweet and friendly. Car rides are a favorite activity as well as his walks which he does well on lead. When he is approached by other dogs, his reaction is just friendly curiosity. When you ask him to "Sit", "Down", or "Stay", he understands. Max meets new people with barks and tail wags, and made "best friends" with our 12 year old grandson. He will play with you and his favorite toy duck for hours if you let him.
We can't understand why Max has not been adopted.....he is the best!!! Please don’t overlook Max…give this deserving boy a chance to become part of your family.
1/23/05 - Max is one GREAT boxer boy! His foster home cannot say enough
Max loves to be with people. He follows his foster dad around the house like a shadow.
Make a nice cozy fire in the wood burning stove and Max will curl himself up in a ball on his blanket and snore by your feet. (Tom says he is dreaming of his forever home).
Please help us make Max's dream come true.
1/16/05 - Max is doing fantastic in his foster home. He LOVES people. He is very comfortable with everyone he meets and loves to play with his babble ball and squeaky duck. He walks very well on a leash. Max doesn't mind being in a crate but only when left alone for short periods of time. He currently sleeps at the foot of the bed.
We managed to locate his previous family who confirmed that Max is a wonderful boy. He lived with children and loves to play with other dogs. The ONLY reason he was surrendered to the shelter was due to one of their children developing severe asthma. They felt they had no recourse.
Max has not been introduced to cats. He grew up going to dog parks three times a week..
Max likes to go for walks and enjoys swimming in the river. Max will do anything for a cookie. We are told by his foster dad and mom that his eyes will melt your heart.
And to think this boy almost died.
1/9/05 - MaxHere is one special boy. Max was sprung from the shelter today. He was surrendered by his family due to children's allergies in the home. Poor Max was scared and confused when we first saw him in his cage and almost given the death sentence by the shelter. However, we have had lots of experience with boxers that have been stressed in a kennel situation. We told the shelter we would like to give him a chance.
Again, we were proven correct. Once he was out of the shelter and into the parking lot, Max was all boxer kisses and wiggles
Max was a bit scared initially with his car ride but the further we drove from the shelter the more relaxed he became. By the time he walked through the door of his new foster home he was all set to explore and look for treats. In no time at all he found the cookie cabinet.
He is currently underweight and needs to be given the time to unwind from his ordeal. He was not doing well with the other dogs in the shelter but a more accurate assessment will come later.
We will be updating his page as soon as we know more about this wonderful boy.
