My Story

Bowzer makes us smile every day.  He is so loving, funny, sweet and happy.  He is also so smart and very eager to learn!  He has come such a long way.  When we first adopted Bowzer, he was very shy, confused, did not know anything about affection.  He had a very strong toy aggression.  He was very unsure of people, he would quiver and urinate.  Not anymore, those days are behind him now!  He loves everyone, no quivering or urinating, he loves being kissed and hugged and giving them!  He shares his toys with his sister and brother (our two other boxers).  He can't wait until after dinner to hop up on the sofa with his best friend - DAD, snuggle in and watch TV.  OH....when it's bedtime he is the first one upstairs in the bed between both of our pillows, well his head is always on his dad's.  They have a bond that is so special.  Mario has high blood pressure, something about Bowzer calms him.  As soon as they sitdown together they are out like a light.  I know we helped Bowzer by adopting him, but the truth is, he really helps us.  We just LOVE HIM!!

We love all of our three boxers, there is something so special about Bowzer.  We could not have asked for a happier, loving, appreciative dog.  We say it everyday, we tell everyone we meet, adopting is the only way to go.  I know WE will from now on.

He loves to play with his toys, going forw alks and snuggling on the sofa with his dad and brother and sister.

Bowzer has been a great addition to our family.  He has a blast with our other two Boxers.  They play with all their toys and run outside for a while until they get out all their energy.  It has been great for all three of them.  After play time and at night everyone snuggles in together.  It's so cute!!  Bowzer has added a sense of calm to our house.  We have been working with a trainer that comes to our house to work with all three of our dogs and that has been great for everyone.  He is a great little boy and we just LOVE him!!

Bowzer is an owner surrender who made his way to NLBR last Saturday.  He's been here almost a week and I've gotten to know this boy a little bit.  Let me start off by saying he's very sweet and has a very engaging personality.  He was nervous and I think confused that first day.  I put his blanket and toy in his crate with him so he had familiar smells, as I thought it might comfort him.  I also had my own boy sleep crated next to Bowzer since he got here so he wasn't alone. 
He does not appear to have any food aggression.  I am feeding him in the crate so he can eat in peace without my boy bothering him.  By day two or three, he knew the routine.  He watches me put food in his bowl and runs to the crate.  He LOVES toys and will play and squeak the toy and growl and make all kinds of noises as he plays.  It is so hilarious, he is truly just a happy-go-lucky soul.  He does all his business outside and sleeps through the night without a peep.  He likes my boy boxer and was being a little overly friendly and playful and backed right down when my boy let him know he was being too much.  Bowzer also seems to love people and is a good watch dog.  He's very alert and smart. 
He does not appear to know any commands but follows directions and has learned to catch onto the routine here.  He's very tiny, maybe 50 pounds.  He's also extremely handsome with a beautiful mahogany colored coat.  He does seem to have some submissive peeing which might just be attributed to the changes, he seems to be adjusting each day and I feel this will go away. 
He will make a great addition to a family with children, perhaps another dog, a yard and lots of toys!
