My wife called me about 4 weeks ago about a dog she saw running loose on the road to our house. She tried to check him out but the dog ran off. I looked for the dog, a boxer, but couldn't find him. My oldest daughter found him, opened her car door and he jumped in. She took him to my wife. Well, thats been about a month back. We have looked and called and ran newspaper ads, and no owner. Some asking around at local vets and the animal control officer has produced nothing either. Dog had a collar but no tags. I think the poor dog got ditched. A crying shame because he is a beautiful, well behaved dog. Perfectly boxer marked, and well dispositioned. The boxer was terribly skinny, actually weak and in poor physical shape. I think he may be as much as 6 or 7 years old. We got him checked over, flea and tick dipped and had him vaccinated. Wanted him safe to keep near our dogs. As near as I can tell from talking to people, he has probably been running loose most of the winter and spring! I haven't seen him myself until the day my daughter found the poor guy. But others have described him perfectly, running around the local town, and running around our area weeks previous to being found. Definatly not a dog used to being feral! Has adapted to life at my house with zero problems! Still looks skinny, but not if you had seen him before(he was bad skinny)! Seems healthy, except his teeth are poor, needs soft food. I'm tired of looking for an owner! The dog has a knot on his cheek that needs looked at, and if I pay to get that fixed I'm keeping the boxer(Louie). Already have 2 boxers, a black lab, a miniture dachsund, and a mongrel dog too. Don't need another dog! I just can't imagine why someone would abandon a nice perfectly marked boxer dog, especialy one that is near perfectly behaved too! A boxer ain't a cheap dog, selling for $350-$450 for perfect marked puppys around here. Leaves me in a bit of a moral quandry! Keep looking for an owner, or fix the dogs cheek problem and keep old Louie. What would you folks do in our position? Thanks, Stevie.
