Logan

Logan

In Loving MemoryIn Loving Memory

This is my baby boy Logan. Logan was my first dog and first love. I got him when he was only 8 weeks old. He was much larger than your average boxer, and weighed in at 100 lbs, and pure muscle. Everyone always said he looked kinda scary, but he was a big baby at heart. You see, Logan was born with a disease called Polyarthritis, which affects every joint in the body. This disease causes severe pain and practically immobilizes the joints. We took Logan to many vets and each one suggested that we just euthanize him because there wasn't much we could do. Finally, we took him to one final vet who suggested we try placing on Logan on steroids, willing to try anything, of course we agreed. The treatment worked and Logan was able to beat the disease and live a happy boxer life. However, when Logan was about 9, he developed cancer. At that moment, my heart broke. But he kept on fighting, just like the first time. Logan was able to overcome the cancer, but sadly, about a year later the cancer came back and it would ultimately take his life. My baby boy passed away on February 5th, 2010. After months of Chemotherapy and constant vet visits, he got to the point where he couldn't fight anymore. On that afternoon I had to make the hardest decision of my life. My boy was suffering and I owed it to him, to not let him suffer anymore. A part of me died that day along with him, but he shall always be a friend, a heroic fighter, and a dog I will forever cherish. RIP My baby, I love you.

Ginger

Ginger

This is Ginger. Miss Ginger was adopted into our family in August 2008 from the local Animal Shelter. I can remember going to the Humane Society that day and having no intention on adopting a dog. I frequently visit the animal shelters here and spend time with the dogs, bring them treats, and just help out. But that day in the very back row of kennels was a small, chubby, gray faced little girl. She was curled up in the back of the kennel and wouldn't even get up to say hi. I could tell she was part boxer right away and at that moment my heart strings began to tug. They said she was roughly eight to ten years old and her story wasn't one of the happiest. Ginger was found wandering the streets as a stray. From her condition and temperament, she'd been living as a stray for over 6 months. And when she was found, they realized that she had been previously owned. She was housebroken, spayed, and sweet towards people, but after so many months of neglect and fighting for food. Ginger arrived at the Humane Society covered in dog fighting scars and was incredibly food aggressive towards other animals. When I heard Gingers story, I immediately rushed home and told my mother about this little old boxer. At first she said no because one dog was enough, but I told her lets just go look. Lets see if Logan, our first boxer, gets along with her. So we did. And on our way to the Humane Society, my mom specifically said "We are NOT adopting a dog today. We are looking, that is it." Later that day she came home with us and has been here ever since. Ginger went from fighting with our first dog every day to no longer being food aggressive. She's able to be around other dogs now without a worry or care in the world. She has also made a great companion for Logan. Ginger is the sweetest little old lady in the world and I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Pinto

Pinto

This is Pinto, aka Pinto Bean or Wiggles as some call him. Pinto was a rescue out of East Kentucky who wiggled his way into our hearts. I had just recently lost my other boxer Logan and had no intention of getting another dog, but when I heard that this baby was in need of a good home, I just had to meet him. When I rescued Pinto he was underweight, had sores all over his body from being cramped in a kennel too small for him,had a stomach virus and was malnourished. Even though Pinto had never receieved proper care and had been obviously neglected, that didn't stop him from being a giant love bug. Now Pinto lives happily with my other dog Ginger and is doing quite well. He is no longer sick, he's gained back the weight he lost, and the sores on his body are healing nicely. Pinto has also helped me to cope with the loss of my first dog and I thank him for that everyday.
