Our Success Stories
This sweet 6.5
month old brindle girl came to rescue through an owner surrender. At an
early age this little girl developed a pocket of infection on her cheek
and was treated with antibiotics. The pocket would receed under the treatment,
but as soon as the medication was stopped the inflammation would return.
A drain tube was tried, but this too failed. The expense of the treatments
were too much for the owners and they released her to Boxer Rescue. We
are exploring options of how to treat this little girl's infection.
Dessi had surgery
the week of January 15 to explore the reason for the infection in her
cheek. She had a salivary gland that was not functioning properly and

She is currently
in a wonderful foster home where she is learning to play from the other
boxers. She is having some trouble with housetraining and will need some
extra attention in this area. As always, we recommend that an obedience
class would be great for her, too. Dessi has had a rocky start to life
and is looking for her forever home.
