Petey (the dog formerly known as DarWiNN)

Pictured with his "brother" Riley

Petey is an approximately one year old white boxer boy, who came to us from the Nebraska Humane Society. Petey had obviously been left outside for long periods of time by his previous owner because his ears and tail showed signs of frostbite. When we had Petey checked out at the vet, we also found he had kennel cough and he was heartworm positive. He was treated for these aliments while in foster care with a club member and he bounced back quickly. While recuperating Petey learned to play with balls, Frisbees and soft squeaky toys. Petey was adopted by the Klaus family, Matt, Darci and their 9 month old boxer Riley. Petey and Riley are best buds and they share everything. Petey has continued to work on his great obedience skills with the Matt and Darci. Darci commented, "Petey is so smart! We can't imagine life without him." We know that Petey is enjoying the life every boxer aspires to have; a couch to lounge on, another boxer to romp around the yard with and the unconditional love of a lasting family.

It is with a heavy heart that I must add this note to Petey's Page. In the winter of 2001, Petey was diagnosed with cancer. Through two traumatic surgeries, daily medicine, and even visits to a holistic veterinarian, Petey lost the battle gracefully. Darci said, "He was a trooper that always kept us smiling." Three years ago the Klaus family adopted this "loving, wonderful, sweetest, funniest, snuggly, clown in the world" and they named him Petey. They gave him the best life any fur-child could have lived and" he gave us back 400% in giggles, funny noises, (smells) and love."
