Kasha was 4 weeks old when her momma died and she needed a home.
As soon as I saw her photo she had to be mine.
Kasha is now two years old and
is the love of our lives. She is so smart and every time she looks at us I
swear she knows what we are saying. We take her to her three favorite parks in Pasadena MD everyday and she sleeps very close to us every night. I am very
grateful for Kasha being in our lives and look forward to everyday being with
Once we got her my husband became
sober. She is our beautiful soul that has saved our lives.
I ran across your site and thought I'd share the story of Roland James. In May of 2004, my boss got a call from the Lexington Humane Society. She is a foster mom, and was ready for a new rescue. She got this 2 1/2 month old Boxer/Black Lab puppy, who had been abused.
His former owners had taken scissors and cut off both his ears, then dropped him off in the night drop box at the Humane Society. 3 days after he was hurt, I met this dog, and he had no fear. He wasn't skittish, just wanted to play and get loved on. I couldn't turn him away. He's my first dog, and has become my child. He's 11 months old now, and is a happy, well adjusted boy. :)
Roland James lives with his owner MeCal in Lexington, Kentucky
Hi, I got a Boxer Black Lab mix. Her name is LuLu. She is 4 months old. So Adorable, sweet, full of energy. She bounces around. Her brindle color is the prettiest and her face is so soft! Just wanted to show her off.
Lulu came to us when she was 3 months old. She is boxer/black lab, dark brindle. We got her from a friend who had no room in her apartment for such an energetic dog. The only reason my friend took her was to save her from going to the pound. When we got her she was on regular puppy chow. A week after we got her she started acting sick. Laying around, walking very stiffly when she had to go out. This started happening on Thursday. I thought she had a stomach problem, except for there was no difference in her poo and no vomit. She started getting a high fever Saturday, stopped eating and barely drank. By the time we realized how sick she was it was the weekend. By Sunday night her sides were sunken in and all she could do was lay there with these sad eyes. I had to carry her out to go potty, then she would try to limp back into the house, but she could barely make it to the door. I could tell she was in severe pain. I called the emergency number for the vet because at that point I wasn't sure she would make it through the night. He didn't know what was going on, but knew because she had not been eating or drinking she was probably very dehydrated. I nursed her through the night, giving her teaspoons of water at a time, and carrying her out to go potty. She whimpered and stiffened up every time I had to move her. It was so sad looking into her eyes. So, Monday morning we went to the vet and discovered she had a condition that some large breed puppies have that is called Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy. It causes a dogs growth plates to swell up and become painfully inflamed if they have a quick growth spurt. So, she had these swollen areas on her front legs that were so painful she stopped eating, became lethargic and was feverish. So, the vet put her on pain medication, I had to switch her to large breed puppy food, which encourages slow growth instead of quick spurts, and after a week and a half of resting she is as energetic as any normal pup.
I cannot imagine our family without her now. I feel horribly that I didn't know to put her on large breed food in the beginning, but I have never had a big dog before. I am just glad she made it through. After researching the condition she has I found that some owners choose to put the dog down because they don't want to deal with it. That is the most horrible thing you could do. There is little chance the condition will flare up if you feed your dog properly. No nutritional supplements, no table scraps and do not overfeed. It couldn't be easier and you could have a healthy, loving companion.
I adopted Bo through pet finder.com. He was left in a parking lot of Magic Mart parking lot with his sisters but I only got him. Bo is a very smart and gentle dog. He likes to play ball, run and jump after a flashlight shining on a wall. Very silly but a great animal.
Casey's mom is a Brindle Boxer, dad is a Yellow Lab. At 1 yr she's slowed to 65#'s but is a real cuddler. These are her at about 7 months. Too bad the "Boxador" isn't really a 'breed' because they make such wonderful companions.
Ok so I don't know if my dog is Lab/Boxer Mix but he does have Boxer in him.
Here's my Story..
July 20th I was up at the Lincoln Park Shelter in Michigan. and we was looking at this this dog for in laws. well This happy prancing Playful dog ran to the gate, (they were help out side for a few hours) so this Kid Pulls up in his car and is trying to steal this Black and white dog over the fence. then the Officer came out and was talking to the kid. to find out the dog is his and his mom called the shelter to come pick him up cause she didn't like the dog. so the Officer being the Nice guy he was Held the dog till the kids about 19 could pay the $30 it cost to go pick the dog up from his moms house. the kid never came back and I ran up there so fast to get him. I was about 2 hours early cause its first come first get! so I bugged my Hubby to go with me and we Sat and sat for 2 hours. and then I got in to the Shelter and There he was all happy and cute. the kid never came for him so I took him home. Only pay $15 for him and $25 for the nutter Fee. and hes been with us for about a month now and hes GREAT! we love him so much hes the best dog ever.very well trained. and great with my kids. hes only about year old or Younger cause his back teeth are coming in. So hes young,. but I know for sure hes Mixed with Boxer I had a Boxer Mix growing up and he looks just like her but other colors. so I went looking and found your site. and I love your site its great! I hope my Jake can be up on there:)
This is our boxador, Penelope (Penny for short). She was given to me by one of my students. We already have a hyperdominant pure bred cockerspaniel and we were looking for an easy going dog to bond with our 4 year old. Penny's mom is a white boxer and her dad is a white lab.
She is brindle. She looks mostly like a brindle lab....which is strange so people always confuse her with a pit bull. She uses her front paws like a boxer and has learned to open doors all over our house. She is my 4 year old's best friend. She is patient, kind and just has a happy-go-lucky personality. She rarely barks and is housetrained and has learned general obedience at 7 months. The only problem that we have had is chewing! She has eaten 7 pairs of shoes and has chewed some of the trim around the doors. We also had to teach her to keep her paws down when she greets people because she can accidentally scratch them.
She is HUGE! She's gained almost 5 pounds a week and the vet predicts she'll be close to 90 pounds..so you have to be prepared for that. I have had dogs my whole life and this is one of the best mixes I've ever had.
Here is our love, Sam. He is a Boxer/Lab mix. I have to say the mix of the two makes such a wonderful, loving affectionate dog for our family. He is wonderful with our rambuxious children! I could not ask for such a perfect dog! He is now 8 yrs old, and still acts like one of our children and keeps up with our 2 children. We adopted Sam from our local shelter. I highly recommend the Boxer/Lab mix for a family or anyone who loves dogs.
This is our Boxer Lab Mix Tubby. He is 14 Months and he is a character. He loves to be in my lap and loves to travel.
He came to us on a fluke and I don't know what I would do without him. He is truly a gem! He was named because he came to us, he was just a baby and he was so fat, we called him Tubby, like Tub O Love, which he really is, so it fits well, although it may be a strange name.
