01/22/13- -Duke was adopted.
01/11/13 - Unfortunately Duke has returned today to find a different type of home. He and Mylee were too protective of their new family and home to handle the fact that they have lots of people coming and going un-announced all of the time. We also decided they would be better adopted out separately this time as it seems like they feed off each other during heightened times. More updates as they settle back into their foster homes.
11/29/13 - Duke has been adopted.
11/21/13 - Duke weights in at a whopping 60 lbs and tolerated his neutering very well. Our vet did find that Duke has corneal ulcers to his (L) eye which inhibits nearly all of his vision on that side. An oral mass was noted on the vet records received prior however our vet found nothing. He is an AMAZING dog and we couldn't have asked for a better boxer to have as our first foster. Shame we can't keep him haha! He has a fabulous appetite, plays amazingly with our female but unfortunately has not done well with other male dogs x 2 instances. This all does make sense considering he and Mylee were always together and now he is currently residing with our female who is the same age as his other furr sister. After settling in with our resident boxer x 1 week there are no more pees/poops in the house. Duke is quite good about letting us know when it's time to do the business. He is a very curious boxer out on walks and still has some work to do in that department. It's incredibly evident on our end that Duke was a well loved dog in his prior home. He is full of love and is so content just lying in your lap or headbutting you for a scratch or pat on the head. Again the only thing we find pertinent to share is that Duke may or may not do well in a home with another male dog as he appears a little possessive around his "female" on 2 instances with us.
11/18/13 - Duke has settled in very well overnight at our home in central New Hampshire. He travels very well and is a gentleman in the car; like
most boxers he adores poking his head out the window and letting the fresh air fill his nostrils. He enjoyed the hour ride back to our home playing with his new boxer toy. Our resident 3 year old boxer Roxy and Duke were slowly introduced to each other outdoors and have truly hit it off. Duke has an excellent appetite but needs to be reminded that just because the resident dog isn't finished her puppo that it doesn't give him permission to take nibbles from her dish. We fed them in seperate rooms this morning without any issues at all. Duke is very good at sharing toys with other dogs and acts more like a puppy when it comes to play time. The pups rolled around on the floor for hours last night cuddling and nuzzling each other. Duke is still intact at this point but has a visit to the vet planned for this Wednesday for neutering. He did have two incidents of peeing in the house last evening likely related to excitement and the scent of our pup who also conveniently had two accidents. No issues noted this morning by either pup. Duke will be kenneled up during our hours at work seperate from our resident dog. He was easily coaxed into his kennel this morning; it's fair to say food is an excellent motivator for this big boy. He has warmed our hearts in just a short 18 hours and will make a fabulous gift for a loving family just in time for the holiday season!
