4 Boxer Mix Puppies

Here we go again. I was asked to hold them for 3 days, then they will be put down. NOT! Whatever I accept in here, is going to survive, unless the physical condition doesn't cooperate.

Josie and Samson

Here are a few pictures of Josie and Samson (formerly known as Julius). Samson's new owners chose his current name, they called today. I suppose he'll be ready in 2 weeks.

Josie looks like she's not growing much, she's going to stay small..a mini chocolate lab . Her leg is doing good one day, then not so good the next day. I keep her off her legs as much as possible, but in order for her muscles to develop normally, there is a minimum requirement of walking she has to do. She's so good with everything and she even smiles! I have to see if I can take a picture of's hillarious!

But here are the cuties for now:

RIP lil Jane

Jane just passed away. She was 3 weeks old. She had breathing problems and I was just about to take her in to the vet's..was waiting for the office to open, but half an hour before that, she took her last breath. RIP lil girl.

Now I just hope that the people how were going to adopt here, will settle with her brother, who seems to have gotten everything that's strong and healthy from the entire the lone survivor.

Josie's leg

Josie's leg has not improved, but I did not expect that yet.

Ruptured ligament

I took Josie to the vet today and the diagnosis wasn't too good. She has a ruptured ligament in her left hind knee and the surgery is in the $800 range...

She can live with it, but it will not be pain free, her leg will be stiff, she will always limp and probably develop arthritis early in that leg.

I'm hoping to either find somebody to adopt her that can afford such surgery, or I have to do a fund raiser.

Josie's personality is absolutely amazing. She is the calmest dog I have ever encountered, yet not fearful at all.

The vet said that they usually have to anesthetize a dog before they can diagnose a ruptured ligament, but she just laid there and held still, the little tip of her tail still going a million miles an hour.

Now I have to come up with an idea about the fundraising...any suggestions welcome!

Josie, chocolate lab, hit by car, possible hip injury. I saw her at the shelter and figured she's better off here. I will attempt to raise some funds for her to take her to the vet, IF it is not getting better the next 24 hours.

She can walk, but limps, she is clearly in pain, so I gave her meds for that:
