After thinking of adding a 2nd boxer to our family and looking at all those homeless dogs out there, I have decided to volunteer one night a week at the local animal shelter. There aren't any boxer shelters specifcally around here, so I went with a no kill shelter for dogs and cats. I will be caring for dogs, walking, feeding, grooming, whatever needs to be done, I am there. My heart was breaking as I read the bios on petfinder.com and rescue sites. I did apply for 2 boxers that were picked up by animal control in two different towns but one was claimed by the owner at the last minute, and the other they decided should be an only dog. I decided to apply with rescues for adoption after my upcoming trip so that I could not be distracted with anything else. I think working at the shelter will be great. Who knows, I could find my new buddy there! In the mean time I will work with the dogs at the shelter, give lots of love to the dog I have now, and if the right dog comes along.......well that's even better.
