We're always going to feel that our dogs leave us too early, whether its at age 5 or age 12.

i would take the all if my husband wouldnt ask for a divorce... I already have 6 and one I pulled from a puppy mill and she has health issues with her hips, but wouldn trade her for the world. All i can do is give her love and lots of chicken

I also found a Boxer Rescue in southern IN who just rescued a breeding pair and pups from a puppy-mill situation (dad and pups pictured below). They are so scrawny at 7wks (underfed and under-loved)! I really want to give one of these pups the home he deserves but I'm nervous about potential health issues...what are your thoughts? Thanks guys!
I would vote for giving them both a home....Scrawny is cured with good food and love....

In my experience, there are no guarantees. No matter how much you check, see health records of parents, see the grandparents, etc. Health issues can always pop up....The health checks that are done for Boxers only cover common heart issues; it doesn't guarantee other heart issues will pop up....Cancer, many high quality show dogs with good lineage die of cancer....Skin issues, depends on the dog, the home, the food, etc., lineage is only the start...My vote is since your rescue has pups, your love will make them flourish and grow, take them both ()....Whatever decision you make will be the right one for you! Good luck -
