We were super lucky to have been approved for Jenkins back in 2012 (& we still thank Patricia, Dee & Teresa for all they did to make this happen!!). Since no one knew much about him, we celebrate his birthday on his “gotcha” day every year – Oct 16th. We believe he will be 9 this year. He’s a big, beautiful boy who’s gotten quite the sugar-face the past couple of years. He is super snuggly and happy, though he has been slowing down due to age and arthritis (hip and back) which makes us sad to see (he is otherwise in good health). He spends most of his time snuggling with his 2 sisters (Lexi & Bunny, both 5 y/o), but loves mom & dad the most - he’s the 1st one in bed with us at night and the 1st one to greet us at the door (always with a toy!) Jenkins enjoys playing “laser tag” every night - romping & trying to catch the light, and in the summer he enjoys catching the water from the sprinklers or hose. And since dad is a hunter, he gets spoiled with his favorite for several days every month: a venison feast!!
Thank you for all the efforts NLBR does every day to rescue boxers in need, fulfill the dreams of adoptees, and provide ongoing support! All the best!
