My Story

Charlotte is doing so well here.  We can barely remember her not being a part of our family.  She is our 3rd boxer and our most well behaved.  She loves our kids, to spend time at our camp which is on a lake, and just be around our family.  The only thing she does not like is to be left home alone.  She gives you the saddest look when we have to leave her (which isn't very often).  
She continues to be energetic, healthy and loving...
We are so happy to have her in our family!

Yes, it is hard to believe it's been a year.  Charlotte is such a love!  She has fit right into our family.  We spent a lot of the summer at our lake house and she enjoyed the lake, boating and all the fun.

She is very well behaved.  I think about once a week, my husband and I say "we can't believe someone gave her up"  I could go on and on...

She loves everyone, kids, adults, other dogs...she loves life.  She has a best dog friend, Gracie, who we have over at least 2-3 times a week for a playdate.  I just say her name and Charlotte's ears go up and her head turns to the side, she knows.  Charlotte loves my 3 kids and waits for them to get off the bus in the afternoon.   There is rarely a moment when one of them is not hugging, playing, or just generally loving her.

Charlotte is an amazing addition to our family.  She is like another person and we all treat her that way.  The bond between her and my childreni is amazing and everyone who comes to my house comments on it, she loves these kids!

We were a bit hesitant to add another dog as we had lost two boxers close togeter (they were 9) about 2 years ago and it was so hard.  I am sooo glad we added Charlotte, it has been the best decision.

She is so well behaved, gentle and loving.  I really can't imagine why anyone gave her away.

Hi Everybody!  It's me, Charlotte and I thought I would tell you a little about myself.  After all, who knows me better?  As you can see, I am a cute young Boxer girl- just 8 months old.  So, you will need to patient and understanding while I continue to learn new things.  It would be best if you are an active, outdoors type person because I just love to be outside.  Running through the grass at top speeds is so much fun especially with other dogs.  A fence would be an added bonus because I have one here at my foster home and it's nice to be loose while staying safe.  My foster mom has worked with me on a leash and I am getting used to it.  She also taught me sit and down.  Now we are working on the stay command too.  She says I am smart and learn new things easily.
Please don't adopt me and then put me in a crate or leave me by myself all day.  That’s what my first home did and that's why I moved here to rescue.  I understand that I am sleeping in my crate at night to keep me safe but hopefully, when I grow up a little bit, my family will trust me to sleep in a doggie bed of my very own in their bedroom!  That will be great so I will work hard to earn your trust.
I'm eating the best dog food here- I love to eat!  This kibble fills my tummy and is supposed to be very good for me.  I like it and have put on a few pounds.  I get to eat three times a day here.  Did I mention I love to eat?  I also love squeaky toys and balls of all shapes and sizes.  One of my favorite things to do is play outside and then follow that up with a nap, or two or three.  I am especially fond of naps on the furniture.  Hope that won’t be a problem!  My foster family has a pool with a safety cover and I have found that I can run right across it.  I don’t think I’m supposed to do this but what fun, especially when my foster brother chases me.  He’s too big to run across after me, haha.  I just love the children here in my foster home - one is 14 years old and the other is just two.  That toddler sure gives me a lot of attention!  Sometimes he even gets on my nerves a bit but I know he’s a baby like me and doesn’t mean to be rough (or annoying!) with me so I tolerate it.  I am actually very good with kids and other dogs - makes me quite a catch, right?  My foster family says it’s a must for me to go to a home with another dog or kids or both and I completely agree! 
Overall, I am a really good girl who just wants a loving, safe and energetic home to match my free spirit.  I would be very unhappy if I didn’t have another dog or children to keep me company.  I have never been without either.  This foster home is nice so I'm gonna keep right on playing and getting lots of love & affection while I wait for my forever family to come along. 


Love, 

Charlotte xoxo

This adorable pup is Charlotte.  She is a seven month old purebred Boxer girl who is available for adoption.  Miss Charlotte has only been with me a few days now but has adjusted with ease to my family and home.  Charlotte is your typical Boxer pup full of wiggles, kisses and adventure and sometimes misadventure too!  She has really taken to my children, ages two and fourteen, as well as my two Boxers, a male and a female.  Charming and social, she is a sweet little thing and just as cute as can be.  Charlotte is still young and wasn’t introduced to a lot of training in her previous home so we are working on walking on a leash, basic commands and manners.  She is quite bright and picks up new things very quickly.  House breaking is nearly 100% complete but we did have two accidents on the first day.  I imagine it was a bit overwhelming for her and she just needed to get used to a new routine.  Charlotte is also crate trained and has been spending her nights there to ensure she doesn’t get into any trouble while her foster family is sleeping!
Charlotte will no doubt make a great companion and family dog.  However, she is still quite young and would do best in a home where someone is home most of the day.  This is not a dog that can be crated for eight hours a day.  She will need patience and time to adjust to new surroundings and routines and she will absolutely need obedience training.  Please check back for updates and new photos soon as I will write more as we continue to get to know our sweet foster girl.
