Hi everyone, my new Foster Home calls me Hanny and I wanted to introduce myself as a brand new loving fella here with New Life Boxer Rescue.
I am a 6-year-old White Boxer that acts much younger for my age and I just lost my loving home when my Mom moved to an apartment where they said I couldn't come. I already know how handsome I am because I over hear everyone talking about my adorable right eye that's surrounded with a Brindle patch and my left eye which is highlighted with Black. The rest of my firm and healthy body is covered with the softest white fur you've ever wanted to touch.
I was raised from a puppy with a brand new baby in my house and grew up with him, so I really love having children around and not to brag, but my manners are pretty good with kids also.
Since I couldn't go with my old family to their new apartment, I'm now staying with this really cool Foster Family until my perfect Forever Family is found. I have a 25-year-old human Foster Brother that I have really attached myself to. He calls me his 'velcro brother'. My Foster Mom is home all day and I like having her here to keep me company all day. She's teaching me all sorts of new tricks and how to play with all my new toys. I already knew how to sit when I arrived but so far, I have learned how to give my paw and walk much better on a leash. I used to pull a real lot on my leash but now I know it's more fun to walk right next to my Foster Mom whenever we go for a walk so there's no more reason for me to pull.
I've got some brand new toys and my favorite is a tug rope. I really enjoy pulling back and forth on it and I just learned how to 'release' so my Foster Mom can throw it for me. You should see how fast I am when I chase it. Sometimes I like to tease her by not letting her grab it when I bring it back but eventually, I 'release' it to her so we can tug on it some more.
My big backyard is all fenced in, making it a blast to feel real free by running all over the yard, chasing my Foster brother around. There's some bunnies in my yard and when they least expect it, I come running out off the back deck and chase them out of the yard. I think they can actually run faster than me because I'm never able to catch them. This morning when I went out, there was a big deer in the yard and I was a little scared since I've never seen a deer before. Since he was so much bigger than me, I made sure I stayed up on the deck and just barked at him, letting him know that this was my yard not his. What a big chicken he was, he ran away as soon as he heard me barking. That should teach him not to come back into my territory!
I've already made fur-friends with the dogs on both sides of my fence. We love to run back and forth along side the fence and sometimes even kiss each other through the links of the fence.
I was always allowed to sit on the furniture and sleep in my old family's bed, so my Foster Mom put some big blankets on there for me and I love to cuddle up to my Foster Brother when he sits right next to me. I still haven't decided yet who I like to sleep with better at night, so I keep experimenting by going back and forth between the beds during the night. After all, I have to be polite by sharing myself, giving everyone equal time with me. My Foster Mom has a really big crate and sometimes I like to hang out in there too but I like to keep the door open just in case something is going on that I need to check out. I hear them call me a 'busy-body' and laugh when I show up unexpectedly, whatever that means.
My new food, Whole Earth Farms Dry Food is so deeeeee-licious on it's own, it doesn't need anything added to it to make me enjoy it even more. My Foster Mom is a little bit on the stingy side when it comes to giving me doggie biscuits though. Only when I perform a trick will she give me some. If I had my way, I'd be eating them all day long. I'm always super gentle taking them right out of her fingers in hopes she'll keep giving me more.
I'm in such good shape, I was told I only have to go to the Vet to catch up on my shots. I'm relieved I already have had my rabies shot, that's one less I have to deal with when I go.
So how do I sound to you so far? Pretty good best friend material, huh! Cross my heart, you won't be sorry when you adopt me, your life will be so much fuller and entertaining with me hanging around. Just ask my Foster family, they'll tell you I can really fill your heart meter all the way up with laughter and you'll wonder how you ever got by without me in your lives. Why not put in your application now, because I just know I'm gonna get snapped up real fast with this charming personality of mine. Boxer slurps to all, Hanny
