Our Success Stories


Shobie was brought to a local veterinary office to be euthanized after her owner learned she had heartworm. Luckily for us and Shobie, several of our Club members work at this veterinarian's office and convinced the owner to surrender Shobie to Boxer Rescue. Shobie had been used for breeding and had been an outside dog. Her ears had severe fly bites on them and were scabbed over and raw and bleeding in some places. One of her ears still does not stand properly after the damage done to it by the fly bites. Shobie was treated for her heartworm, spayed and updated on her vaccinations and then she went to a foster home. In her foster home, she proved to be a clown. After being an outside dog and then being in a kennel for 30 days, her housetraining needed some work. After getting some weight back on her and working on her housetraining, Shobie was placed in a home with a single man. After going to her new home, Shobie regressed in the housetraining area and her new owner spent many months working on her housetraining and building up her confidence after all the changes in her life. She now is a spoiled housedog who has the run of the house. Her new owner has now gotten involved with Boxer Rescue and also fosters other rescue Boxers from time to time for Missouri Valley Boxer Club.
