Noooooo!! Not a kid. lol. New pup, Oscar, a new friend to Roxie (my other Boxer doggie) and me!! It’s been a month since suddenly losing Cracker, which I still can’t get over. Roxie was grieving too and I was worried she’d stay depressed and mopey. A couple weeks ago I reached out to the local Boxer rescue www.mtbr.org and was glad I did. I faced the decision of how long to let Roxie grieve and a couple weeks later I decided to actively look for a new buddy for her, especially for when I’m not home she isn’t alone bored. Her and Cracker were together over 7 years and I was concerned about the adjustment. The Boxer rescue was very nice and helpful, and they really do a great thing for these dogs that need good homes! Also they really want you to have the right pet for you, and are honest about the disposition of each dog etc. Plus the dogs are wormed, have vet visit, and have shots, and are neutered / spayed already! Many reasons to go with a rescue!
So they let me know about Oscar, a really beautiful and well mannered male, he’s 2 years old and already almost 80 pounds LOL! I thought that sounded good since Roxie is the alpha and is definitely bossy LOL! So it’s good he’s passive. I introduced them and they seemed to interact well, so I took him home! He’s a really awesome dog, and has come a long way with obedience since his arrival. Roxie is still a little bit snappy and bossy with him but I think it’s going to work out. He’s just young and playful and she wants to play when SHE wants to haahaa! But I can see a difference in Roxie which is good…..now hopefully she continues to warm up to him…..I was not ready for another dog but I felt she was so we went for it. There is no replacement for Cracker, but I can see similar contrast that will make this entertaining Here are pics of the dogs.
