Our Success Stories
Rocky was confiscated from a neglectful
and abusive home. When he was picked
up by the Animal Control Officer, he was too weak to even stand on his own.
spending nearly four months at the shelter in legal limbo, Boxer Rescue was
to take Rocky into foster care. In his foster home, Rocky flourished. He was
Boxer boy. He never had any accidents, never started trouble with the other
never tore anything up or got into things he wasn't supposed to. He was truly
Boxer. Rocky's neglectful owner was arrested after he failed to appear in court
abuse and neglect charges. Two more times, Rocky's owner did not show up for
but Boxer Rescue was there each and every time, fighting to get Rocky removed
that home permanently. Finally, after the last court date, the judge was forced
the owner's legal ownership rights. This was a very happy day for us. It was
very stressful having to think about the
possibility that Rocky could be returned to the neglectful situation
that he came from.
Rocky was soon adopted by a single
man and the two have become best friends.
Rocky's new owner says he has never laughed so much, nor had he realized just
lonely he was until Rock joined his life. Rocky's new owner loved him so much
that 1 ½ years
after adopting Rocky, he decided to add another Boxer to the family.
went to join Rocky
and Pat in 2001. Happy keeps Rocky on his toes.
