We would like to thank everyone who came out to the Boxers, Brew, and BBQ fundraiser. It was a beautiful day with great food, music, friends and especially some great dogs!! We are happy to report that we raised enough money to cover medical expenses, including heartworm treatment, for at least 25 Boxers! We met our goal and then some!! Thanks to all our donors and volunteers and to everyone who participated in any way. Without you we couldn't have had such a successful event. Get ready for next year! We are planning already ! Check out some pictures from the event here, courtesy of Stacey Warnke Photography.

Whoopie is a 4-5 year old female boxer.This spunky girl is full of energy and loves to play! She does well with other dogs that are more submissive in nature. She has tried to escape when out in the yard alone, so a home with a secure, 6 foot fence would is a must for her. This beauty would make a perfect running companion and would fit beautifully into an active family .

Poor PeeWee was adopted from LBR about 8 years ago. Unfortunately her owner passed away and she had nowhere to go. She is selective about which dogs she likes and for that reason she should be the only dog in the home and not be brought to dog parks. She is house and crate trained and just needs a comfy place to live out her life. She would be a great companion for an older couple of single person. Please note she is on an inexpensive monthly thyroid med and has allergies.

Buster Brown - 12-27-12
"I'll never forget the day we brought him home. Our son Brad was house-sitting for us while we were gone. Brad was laying in the floor watching TV when we brought Buster in the door. Buster went running over to Brad, licked him on the nose, and laid down beside him like he'd known him his entire life. Later that afternoon after Brad had left, Karen was sitting on the couch and Buster sat down in front of her and looked at her as is to say "Aren't you going to invite me up there with you?" I got a couch cover we'd had for Waffle, the boxer we'd lost several months earlier and Buster climbed up on the couch by Karen and laid his head in her lap just like Waffle used to do. Karen was convinced that Buster was channeling Waffle. I was so pleased to see him do that. Buster was convinced that everyone that came in the door had come to see him and he acted accordingly. He was always happy. As Brad said, no matter what kind of a day you were having, when you came in the door and saw Buster, you just had to smile. My brother always called him Mr. Personality. As I'm sure you can tell, Buster was much more than a pet to us. He was a dearly loved member of our family."
