Rocky first came into rescue in February 2013. We estimated his age at around 7 to 8 years old, and when he was adopted the next month in March we were ecstatic as seniors normally do not get adopted that fast in rescue. We were very hopeful with Rocky's new home, but unfortunately he was returned in June because he was not longer acting like himself. His previous foster home gladly took him back, and immediately noticed he was very sick. A visit to the vet revealed a large tumor in the back of Rocky's throat, limited vision in his right eye, and some neurological symptoms. He likely has a slow growing brain tumor. As these are normally inoperable, his foster family decided to treat him with palliative medicine. On his current medication, Rocky is thriving. The tumor in his mouth has shrunk, and he has a lot more energy. He does have his bad days, but Rocky is still happy and content. It is unknown how much time Rocky has left. It could be weeks or maybe even years. Although his foster family is prepared to keep him for the rest of his time, we would still love to find him a family that can provide him with lots of love and care. Rocky's foster mom brags that he is the perfect gentleman. He never has an accident in the house. He even has free roam of the house when they are gone. He gets along with male and female dogs, and loves people and children. Despite the fact that Rocky has had a rough life, he is living it up with Louisiana Boxer Rescue and still has so much love to give.

"Harley"has a sad story... His original owners were involved in a car accident and passed away, he was then bounced from home to home before ending up in a different rescue organization. He was then adopted and lived with them for several years until he had a growth come up and the family can no longer afford him. He is perfectly house trained, has been through obedience school, a true couch potato and adores children! He is now 7 years old and just wants a final stable home

Buster Brown - 12-27-12
"I'll never forget the day we brought him home. Our son Brad was house-sitting for us while we were gone. Brad was laying in the floor watching TV when we brought Buster in the door. Buster went running over to Brad, licked him on the nose, and laid down beside him like he'd known him his entire life. Later that afternoon after Brad had left, Karen was sitting on the couch and Buster sat down in front of her and looked at her as is to say "Aren't you going to invite me up there with you?" I got a couch cover we'd had for Waffle, the boxer we'd lost several months earlier and Buster climbed up on the couch by Karen and laid his head in her lap just like Waffle used to do. Karen was convinced that Buster was channeling Waffle. I was so pleased to see him do that. Buster was convinced that everyone that came in the door had come to see him and he acted accordingly. He was always happy. As Brad said, no matter what kind of a day you were having, when you came in the door and saw Buster, you just had to smile. My brother always called him Mr. Personality. As I'm sure you can tell, Buster was much more than a pet to us. He was a dearly loved member of our family."
