Wooo hoo, I’m cured!!!! Those nasty heartworms are GONE FOREVER!!!!! I am so excited I can run and play and chase the ball. I think I could do back flips I’m so happy! I have one more thing to do before I can come to your house to live forever. Tomorrow my foster mom says I am going to be neutered, not sure I like the sound of that, but if it means I can find my VERY OWN FAMILY, well then let’s get ‘er done.



I am soooo ready for a family to call my own. I know sit and down. I wait to come in the house and for my food. I like treats and toys, soft ones and chewy ones too. Mostly I just want to have you pet me, but I’m not too pushy. Sometimes I talk to you when I REALLY need to go outside and you have forgotten. I don’t EVER potty in the house. I am crate trained. I walk well on the leash. I’m a laid back guy; rarely see the need to bark. Don’t you need someone to watch the games on TV with you? Nascar is OK too.



Put your application in I just know that now that I am fully healthy there must be a family out there just for me.



Love,

Palmer

Good morning, it is nice and sunny here in Virginia today. I have been outside and I so want to play. Friday I go to the vet for what should be my LAST treatment for these nasty heartworms; I wish my previous owner had loved me enough to protect me from them. I am still on crate rest until my test comes back negative. My mom does let me out of my crate if I promise to just lie at her feet and be good. I have a really hard time with staying quiet. I feel better and I want to play, so I pick up a toy and walk around asking for someone to play tug with me. Soon, I will be able to run and play just like the other dogs.

Have you put in your application yet? Are you approved and just waiting for me to be healthy again? I sure hope so, I am ready for my forever home.

I would like a home with another dog; I like to have someone to play with. Oh, you don’t have another dog? Well, then just check out the many dogs on the Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue website and pick a playmate for me. You know what they say two are better than one!

Hope to meet you soon,
Love,
Palmer

Hey forever family, PALMER here. Sorry I forgot to write but where do I start? You know that old saying “Sick as a DOG” well they have no idea how sick a dog can be. I arrived at my new foster home and my mom found out I had a UTI. Do you know how many times you have to GO with one of those? I had my first heartworm treatment on December the 8th and I have been on crate rest ever since, how boring. I miss playing with my fur sister. Playing tug of war with her was one of my favorite things to do. Ya can’t do that through a crate!

This week my foster mom brought in two little whiney things she said were puppies, I wasn’t too interested. My fur sister is teaching them manners. I just stay in my crate and eat treats. I do like skin babies they smell so good. I let them love on me even when they are a little rough. Did you know skin babies pull ears?

I love to cuddle with my skin sister and she loves to cuddle with me too. Dad says no dogs on the furniture but when he isn’t looking she sneaks me up to her room, then I take over the WHOLE BED, covers and all. What fun!

Monday I am going to the vet again for the second part of my heartworm treatment. Paws crossed that I get cured, and then you could take me HOME with you.

I walk very well on a leash; I will even walk beside you without the leash. I am very quiet; I don’t talk back like my fur sister (or the skin kids here). I am a very laid back boy, but don’t think that means I am a couch potato. When these nasty worms are gone I will be MORE than ready to play. I love rope toys and my bottle buddy, oh and treats, did I mention I like LOTS of treats? I know sit and I wait politely to eat.

Check out my new pictures, isn’t this a face you want forever in YOUR home? Get your application in now, I will soon be ready to join your family.

Love,
Palmer, AKA Arnie, well that’s what my foster dad calls me, everybody else calls me Palmie. I don’t care what you call me just CALL ME.
