Firstly I love how well spoken you are and respectful! I am sorry that your stepdad is that way, but anyway I would absolutely take him with me, he may miss his buddies but he will get over it, I would do anything to get him out of the backyard. Just remember walks often, he will love that. And I forgot what else I was going to say if it comes back to me ill reply

I'm so sorry! This breaks my heart. Do you have any family members or close friends who would be willing to take him? That way you can at least see him and know he's being taken care of.

I wish I were closer. I'd take him. I just lost my senior rescue. I don't mean to pry, but is your dad around. Maybe he can help. Other family. I agree the animal control is put. Anybody on here from the area and know of a boxer rescue?

I have uploaded some pictures of Bobo. They're in an album on my profile. I have yet to figure out how to post pictures in threads. I have also found a website for Boxer rescue in Illinois. You have no idea how hard it was for me to press the "post" button... I'll be happy when he's happy though.

Bobo is a beautiful boy? Will your mother allow him to be rehomed? I can't imagine how hard this whole thing is for you. I wish I could give you a hug.

That was not a question. Just a typo.

Thank you so much for your support. It gives me strength to see everyone saying that I'm doing the right thing here. She told me that he is my dog and my responsibility. I am taking responsibility for his well being... I'm not sure how she'll feel, but obviously she won't feel too awful about him leaving. I mean that with all respect to her. Although she does not understand why the situation Bobo is in is bad, she is a good person and a good mother and I love her.

I feel bad for you having to make this decision and I feel bad for Bobo (who is very handsome, btw)
Curious though - what was your mother's response to the e-mail you sent her?

Her response was... well. She basically laughed and said that I was being ridiculous. She said that he's fine out there and she won't let him inside because he's "too old to be house trained now"... Dogs can be house trained at any age. It just gets more difficult as they age. He's still fairly young though, so I thought that argument was invalid...
