Well, just recently my son started asking if he could get a dog for Christmas. We told him it would have to be a small dog because "mamma wants a boxer" and we don't want two big dogs in the house.
We've been looking on-line at breeders, humane societies and rescue sites, not sure where we were going to get dogs from. I originally wanted to get a puppy, but then I came across the local boxer rescue site. They had an adoption day Saturday and we went. Later that afternoon, they brought Roscoe to our house for a "home visit" and he hasn't left. All we need to do now is finalize the adoption. It hasn't taken him long to make himself right at home.
