I don't think I could go thru right heart break again he is my second boxer, I volunteer with 3 dog rescue groups and I foster dogs as long as there at least medium sized( due to smaller ones being able to fit thru my fence) I think i'mma have to stick to being a foster mom

Your baby is gorgeous. I don't know how 'people' can be so inhuman to animals. If they don't want them or want to care for them, turn them over to a shelter or rescue. I know our rescues around here are always full, but a shelter still gives them a chance. Sorry to rant...

So sorry your guy is having these issues. Hopefully they can find the cause and control it to give you more happy years together.

It's is great that you were able rescue him and give him a great life! I truly hope you guys have a lot more time together.

I understand. Jax is in my lap as soon as I sit down. Our boys sleep with us, and Jax has to be next to me.
When I get home they all meet me at the door and lick and wiggle. Jax will get a toy to try to play. Now that we have our puppy, Bandit (he's about 1.5 years old now), usually Jax runs off after bringing the toy because Bandit is trying to get it.

Unless someone has food in the kitchen, Jax follows me from room to room. I'll be devastated when it's his time to go, none of them will be easy. I hope to get to hold them and that there's no pain. I love all my furkids and they will all take a piece of my heart with them. Jax and I have had a special bond since the first time I held him that's just different.

He'll be 5 in a couple of weeks, and he's had a benign tumor removed from one ear. I know there are a lot of things that can take a boxer between cancer, heart issues, etc... This site helps to remind me to be thankful for every day I get with our furbabies and to enjoy their individual quirks and habits.

I like your pictures here, don't you love it when they lay their head on your neck and cuddle? People are their favorite pillows.
I'm glad most of the tests are coming back OK. Hopefully they can find out what's causing this and are able to control it.

He is now no seizure meds and something for anxiety, no more seizures but now he is so tired he can't walk, I have to carry him everywhere, I hold him up to go potty and feed him by hand, I think it's too strong for him, we go back next week to do more blood work to check if his levels are right... it's so heartbreaking to watch my baby go thru this

Ok clearly this is not good and I am so sorry. :(

But it seems like this is not the end just yet. So he is having "mobility issues??" I got your back ... my Struddell had DM and for the last two years of her life ... she could not walk at all! Rocky my Over Size Working Line GSD was a "Wobble Dog" so it was pretty much a decade of caring for a dog with mobility issues! But "we" got it done and you can too ...you just need "tools!" :)

A mobility Harness will be helpful and will take the load of your back! See here ...

https://www.amazon.com/Dog-Lifting-Aid-Mobility-Harness/dp/B008EXJIG2

I went with that one ... I had some "issues with the fitment of it" but I used it for a decade so yeah???

Here is more info on them ... https://www.k9ofmine.com/best-dog-lift-harnesses/

It sounds like your time together is not done but you might more help to give your back a break?? And unlike me ... you don't have to struggle alone with this ... we got your back ...hmm no pun intended. :)

Thank you very much, the vet said it's side effects of the seizure and anxiety meds that eventually he will adjust

It's good that it sounds like the seizures are under control. I hope he's able to function better on the meds by now.

They are whining him off the seizure meds the vet doesn't think it's actual seizures but seizureish, she wants to check his hips for dysplasia or spinal problems due to his previous owners locking him in a puppy kennel and not allowing him out ever, he was in there from a pup until he was rescued at 2 yrs old it caused his spine to grow curved up from where he was hunched in the kennel this is his before and after, the first pic is within 2 days of having him
