Eggie and Ginger (now known as Freddie and Ginger, yes after Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers) are doing wonderful in their new home. They have settled in quite nicely with their new family. They are very sweet and well behaved. They are on a good schedule and they really do well with it. They get 2 walks a day. At first when they came, there was no walking. They just wanted to smell everything, everyplace, everywhere. Now that they are used to their new home, the walks have become more walking and less sniffing but they still love to sniff. They greet friends that come into the house with sweet kisses and some boxer wiggles but they are very gentle and they never jump. They LOVE their big back yard and have fun playing outside. They are not interested at all in the rain or the snow. They prefer to stay inside when the weather is bad. We are so happy to have them in our lives.!

Eggie and Ginger are such a pleasure! They have made themselves right at home and are adapting beautifully. Norma has become their favorite and the feeling is mutual. More updates to come as we get to know this sweet pair.

Meet Eggie and Ginger! Eggie is a 5 year old brindle male and Ginger is a 6 year old fawn female. Eggie and Ginger are a BONDED pair of boxers that were dropped off at a shelter a few weeks ago. Apparently their owner passed away 1 year ago and one of his children took the dogs, but they have cats and claim the pair do not get along with the cats. They are good with other dogs, but not small animals as they both show a very high prey drive. They both know basic commands and walk well on a leash The staff at the shelter reports that there is food aggression between the two of them so they feed them separately. They said they are fine with people if you try to take food away, etc. They are also fine with toys. Food seems to be the only issue and that will need to be worked on in their new home. They are use to a fenced in yard and were not walked a lot, so they will need a home that is willing to exercise them regularly. This couple is very sweet and very attached to each other, so we will be looking to place them together. Their previous owner reports that they are good around children, however, because we do not know them yet, we will be looking to place them with older children or no children until we get to know them better. We are looking for a foster home for Eggie and Ginger as they are in a shelter environment. If you can find it your hearts to help these babies, please email us at email@example.com
