There are lots of others out there like him that need good homes!

You guys with your macho wacho dogs are making me afraid to post this....

We have a Golden Retreiver and absolutely adore her. Hands down, we'll never own another breed of dog again. We've had the muts, too. The muts have a great temperment and typically live a long time because of the less likelyhood of inbreeding. I'm yet to meet a breed of dog that'* more charismatic, playful, and fun loving as a Golden.

Ha, Ryan, I figured it out. Gas costs for me to bring either my truck or my Bonn out there, plus the adoption fee, would come to a total of $401

I like the mutts also. I got my pekignese/fiest mix at the Humane Society.....He was on clearance so I got a great deal. He is very protective of me and Jeff!! The funny thing is he doesn't like hardly anyone else. He is so sweet to us but he watches anyone that comes over to the house. We usually put him on a leash just to take precautions. If he doesn't like you he will either bite you or pee on you. Either way it will tick you off.

He is a good judge of character- I should have taken heed when he peed on Sizzle. LOL

4 adult Schipperke'*. 4 litters total.
Black Lab <-----least favorite of the bunch
Rott <-----great breed (especially if a boxer raises it) but takes alot of work.
Min Pin. Lots of attitude, takes alot of work
3 boxers. Any one of them was a better dog than any of the others.

Boxers are very trainable, loyal, protective, and predictable, but have TONS of character. They don't shed, they clean easily, and you can take 'em anywhere.

Two biggest faults? They fart more than other breeds. Funny when you're drunk though.
Short lifespan. 11-12 years is considered good.
I dont have enough good thing to say about Boxers. They are great dogs and very friendly. Mutts need love too though

Animals take after their owners. You sure the dog'* gas problem is a breed characteristic and not the beer and food you feed him?

Seriously. Everyone at WCBF, dog people or not, fell in love with Bo in a heartbeat. And he'* just like the two I had before.
