Arrival Story: Styx (like the river Styx) is a challenge even to a seasoned dog owner like myself. She is constantly challenging mom for the alpha role! She just thinks she can do it so much bettter.
I got Styx as a 9 week old puppy after my Walker Hound of 13 years past. OB, my Boxer mix who I had adopted from a high kill shelter was despressed without his friend however he was extremely dog aggressive (he had been used as a bait dog) and we thought bringing in a puppy of the opposite sex would be best. It worked, he took her under his wing and they became fast friends. She got us totally hooked on Boxers, however after the experience of adopting OB I knew I wanted to help more dogs like him and when we thought about getting a third dog we decided to volunteer for Norcal.
