aaagggghhhh

A person that got a dog on sat phoned to say it wasn't working out!!!

She took the dog to show off to her friends, went into a strange house, kept him "close" on a lead and wondered why he was protective of her! Give me strength.

On Sat he was brought to my house by strangers, never been in a car before! He played out the back with my daughter who is nearly 4 no problem! He was in house with kids but never been walked for at least 4 weeks or played with. (he must have thought he was in heaven). After a few hours, put in my car and taken to his "new mum" only he wanted to come back with me. Poor wee soul! he bonded really quickly.
Then he was taken to another house. It turns out she has had a stream of visitors since then. He sticks to her like glue. Then today she took him a nice long walk, then on to a friends and you know the rest.
When I explained all this to her she has decided to keep a quiet house til the weekend then her sister and daughter are going to come and visit and play with him out the back.
She has been around boxers all her life. It makes you wonder.

I think people forget just how sensitive these poor babies can be.

Sasha was "delivered" to me by her owners, so we were very aware that everytime we went in the car, she may have thought she was going somewhere else.

I would say that with both my adopted girls, they took at least a couple of months to feel safe and at least 6 months to feel completely secure and at home.

If it was an adopted child, you wouldn't expect them to feel safe for a long time - boxers are the same I think.

I hope it continues to work out for this chap - sounds like he hasn't had it fair so far.

Hesky loves to see everyone who calls round, but we kept it quiet for the first few days. Cant believe that some people put their dogs through that amount of stress - were they born thick?? Were currently getting Hesky use to going to my mum and dads, cos thats where he'll be going when were on holiday. Fortunately my folks love boxers so it will be like home from home for him!

I will send you a platinum badge in the post for your amazing patience Jacquie - you deserve it!!!

I really don't know how you all cope it would drive me crazy, what you all do for these dogs is really special - lets hope this particular rehoming works out in the long run.

If she does what she has said, I cant really see a problem. I must admit my first reaction was to go and get him!
