Zack's lookin' for a new home

Zack is an 8yr old white boxer boy.
He is a big hunk!! Sadly, his family is moving and cannot take him with them. :sad: It's their loss though because this boy is a real catch - He knows all basic commands, he doesn't jump up on furniture, he even sits after he comes inside to wait for his paws to be wiped!
He can be left on his own for a whole work day, either loose or crated. He loves all people and children. He is good with female dogs, but not with unneutered males.

Zack is a quiet boy, doesn't bark and he loves affection and attention. Would you be willing to give this boy a warm and loving home? It's all he needs! If you are interested. please APPLY HERE :http://www.boxerrescuequebec.com/zack.cfm

Why adopt a senoior dog? This is why : http://www.boxerrescuequebec.com/adoptasenior.cfm






can you wipe my paws...pweeeease?

Poor little old guy:sad:
I often wonder,why do people move anywhere where such a wonderful member of the family cannot come along especially at his age,so sad.
Best of luck to him for a forever home

I wonder the same thing Chico :sad:

I'll post the letter here, for those (like me) who are too lazy to click on the link

This is a letter that BRQ got from a wonderfull couple who adopted TWO (you heard me, not one, but TWO) seniors last year. When I first read this, it made me all teary....

Quote:
Hi Folks

I thought you might like some news from Charlie and Cashew.

Both are doing well and are happy that the winter is over. Cashew doesn't like the cold (much like Karin). During the really cold days it was hard to get her to go outside to do her business. Charlie on the other hand loves the cold and romping in the snow.

We decided to get them some coats for the really cold days. Cashew, being a girl, loves to dress up and is happy to go out in the cold with her fashion coat on. Charlie, I swear to God, is embarrassed to be seen in his coat. He mopes and won't walk down the street. We soon learned that we should just put the coat on Cash and leave Charlie alone. That way they are both happy.

Charlie has very bad arthritis. His hind quarters follow him around like a drunk. But you know that we have learned lots from him. He is so happy-go-lucky and so carefree that he reminds us to make the best of every day. I have included a picture of Charlie's favorite bunny. If Charlie sees Bunny, Charlie flies off the deck and chases Bunny like a 2 year old. Of course he could never catch Bunny. But that's one of the things we have learned from Charlie, "It's not about the catching, it's the chase that counts."

We have learned lot's from Cashew also. Her motto is different than Charlie's. Cash's motto is "Find a sun spot and soak up those ray babies." She would lay in the sun for hours tanning one side then the other, if we let her.

Our neighbour makes doggie treats for all of the dogs in the area. When she takes her daily walk she drops two cookies for C&C in our rural mail box. Now, of course, whenever we go for a walk, we have to check for mail for Charlie and Cashew. They are always hopeful that their friend Judy has left them a love letter.

Charlie got skunked a couple of weeks ago. He was so forlorn. He knew he stunk and he stood patiently while I bathed him in tomato juice. That of course didn't get rid of all the smell. So Karin took him to his favorite groomer-buddy Dave. C&C got their spring baths and that got rid of the skunk smell from Charlie. It's amazing how sensitive Charlie is about his appearance. When Karin took him into Dave, Charlie moped into the store reluctantly (afraid someone would see and smell him). When Karin picked him up an hour later, he was a different guy, all happy and energetic ... "Look Karin, look. I don't stink anymore."

Charlie and Cashew make people friends wherever they go. Another lesson learned from our canine teachers: "Always stop and talk to people. They might give you a cookie."

Happy Spring from your friends, Charlie and Cashew.

Frenchy,it's a darn shame for Zack,hopefully someone like Charlies and Cashews owners will fall in love with Zack
I saw on the BRQ site they have another senior dog,not a boxer,he/she looks like he/she's lost all hope,although I am sure BRQ is taking very good care of him/her.

Karma? She's actually not with BRQ, she's on the site so she can get a bit more visibility. She's with SPCA Laurentide Labelle (www.spcall.ca) She's been there since may :sad: and she's 10 years old....

I love Zack ...he's adorable. I can never understand why people can leave their pets behind just because they have to move. I sure hope he finds the loving forever home he deserves.

Meb999,I am sooo sorry to hear that about Karma,having to be the only dog,probably makes it more difficult to find her a home,hopefully she still gets some love and cuddles

Out of curiosity- Does he have a good recall? We're only fenced on 3 sides here....

Any news on him? My man conditionally said ok... He was really allergic to boxers when he was little (but they were badly kept boxers:sad: ) so we'd have to go see him first to see if my man is really allergic to him or not before fostering him.

I have references if you need them.

I hope Zack gets along with Jems and Boobs... And that my man isn't too allergic.

Dunno yet... He lives near my man's mom's so that made it even easier to convince the man to go.
