Hi I am a third time boxer owner, this being my first puppy. I took my time in selecting my boxer, researched and visited several breeders prior to purchasing. My previous two boxers were adult rescues. I expected the usual puppy stresses such as chewing household items, accidents on the floor and puppy training. What I didn't expect was two years and counting of painstakingly watching as the newest member of the family scratched and chewed herself raw and whimpered when she became too exhausted trying to relieve the itch. Feeling very helpless and discouraged after two years of trying almost everything under the sun to ease my puppy's suffering. I heard about forums like this and decided to give it a try, maybe some one out there has gone through what we have and can help. If not than perhaps some of what I have learned along the way can benefit someone else. Either way we are committed to loving our boxer and providing her with the best possible quality of life.
