Last night I found Boxer breeders on Ebay. So I emailed them. One responded this morning, and we sent emails back and forth. then I got curious and googled the name of her kennel. The first thing that popped up was in 2010 she was accused of running a puppy mill. The local news for that area reported on it and I found the video. I was disgusted at the living conditions of the puppies..and I instantly said " NO WAY" . If I could afford to, I would buy everyone from her and save them..every thing was absolutely deplorable. My heart ached for all the dogs in her possession. She claimed to not be a puppy mill, however, You can not have that many dogs and not be one. They were housed outside in hand made, rickety cages. I wanted to cry.
Then I found our local Boxer Rescue. My heart began to melt, I said the heck with it and I filled out an application.
They have this baby there she is around 10 weeks old, her sister has all ready been adopted. So I am hoping she is still available. If not, then there are a couple of others around the 1-2 year range, that we could possible give a home too. There are fees for adoption, they do like to come meet with you prior to placement, but that is expected. I would rather give our money to help save a life and benefit a worthy cause then to a two bit breeder who is in it for the money..
My fingers are crossed and my prayers have been said that we can rescue one of the babies. We have a lot of love to give, and Ruger would love a play mate. NW has already came up with names : "Rossi" or "Liberty" after our new safe. : )
