Pebbles is continuing to
thrive in her foster home. She loves balls and has created her own
play area in the yard with seven at last count! She is content to play
by herself, but is eager to jump in when she sees her siblings playing a
good game of chase. After play time with her siblings, this girl likes
her rest and relaxation. She has snuggled in every dog and people bed
in the house. Pebbles is very much at ease and is proving to be a
wonderful, easygoing dog. She requires very little, but has a lot to
Recently, Pebbles helped at an Adopt a Boxer Rescue table at a pet
blessing and she was a sport. There were over 40 dogs and 100
people/children who visited in under two hours. Pebbles allowed
unknown faces to approach and pet her. She even wagged her nub and
snuck in a boxer kiss to a child. Of course, she got in on the action
and was blessed - because who couldn't use some extra blessings!
The big outing of the week was to see a special orthopedic veterinarian
who examined Pebbles and indicated her quirky leg is simply scar tissue from
a previous, untreated sprain. A little pain management is all it will
need. She has started her medication and is on the road to recovery.
This lady is sweet and silly. She would be the perfect addition to
This mature lady has adjusted
beautifully to her new foster home. Once she learned to trust the
humans in the house, Pebbles has been a complete love bug! She has
been giving boxer kisses and "smiling" unless she is sleeping (which she
does very soundly!). When Pebbles wakes up, she is the happiest girl
and tries to sneak in some love before the day starts.
Pebbles has seen our rescue vet to examine her leg. She has no
problem jumping on the bed, running in the yard, and going up steps.
The only time it is an issue is when she is standing, and she simply lifts
it. She is on medication to treat a possible infection. Once
this is completed, her leg will be reevaluated.
It is hard to imagine that Pebbles is 9 years old when you see the spring
in her step. She prances around the yard, loves to play with balls,
and has typical bursts of boxer energy. Pebbles took immediately to
the other boxers in the house and loves to follow them around to see where
the next adventure will be. She is perfectly housebroken and does well
in the crate. Pebbles walks great on leash and loves to ride in the
When Pebbles arrived, she had no interest in food or treats. Once
she saw her foster siblings enjoying biscuits, though, she decided she
wanted them too. Pebbles just wants to be one of the pack.
This girl is the perfect lady and is looking for nothing more than to be
happy and make a family happy.
Pebbles was surrendered to the shelter because her owner could not afford
her. She is a nine year old boxer with an injury to her rear leg.
Pebbles is being evaluated at our vet, but we have determined she does not
have any breaks. Pebbles did very well on her dog test at the shelter,
even with the injury. She is also reported to be good with children.
