4/25/07 - Hi everyone!! We have had Jack in our home and hearts for almost two months now- and I feel sad that I have not shared anything with you. To be honest (and embarrassed) I just figured out how to start a new post on this thing. Anyway, Jack moved in with my fiancé and I and helped us break in our new home. We could not think of a better way to officially start our lives together then with a furry friend. Jack has been unbelievably amazing- he spends
most of his time with me running errands, riding in the car, going to the park and going to the barn (all of which rank very high in fun things to do for Jack Attack- as we call him) but Tim feeds him so he feels love for both of us (food is a big deal as you all know). Jack does all of the normal boxer things snores, farts, wiggles, but to us he does them the best (minus the farting- and by the way thanks soooo much for the yogurt tip!!) Tim and I wanted to thank you all for making this possible for us- he our perfect match and compliment- one eye and all. And once I figure out how to use my digital camera I will send you all some pics.
Thanks Again!! -Emily, Tim and Jack

3/19/07 - Jack has been adopted

3/1/07 - Jack is pending adoption

2/13/07 -  Are you looking for a laid back dog?  Jack is your boy.  Whether you want to relax on the sofa and watch a movie, go for a walk or maybe run some errands in the car.  Jack is up for anything. He just loves people and wants to be with them.  If you don’t feel like giving him attention he will be more than happy to chew on a mammoth bone and leave you alone.

2/10/2007 - Jack is doing well at his new foster home.  He is very lovable and really wants to please. He is allowed in the whole house and I haven’t had any problems.  When he needs to go outside he gently taps on the sliding glass door and waits.  He doesn’t get into anything and is very calm.  He would rather cuddle and be pet than play.  He also loves to chew on a mammoth bone.  He comes in immediately when called.   He will no longer chase the cats when they are inside the house but still chases them when they are outside.  If he does catch up to them in the back yard he just barks and doesn’t hurt them (I will work on getting him to leave them alone in the yard).  I have been working on teaching him to walk without pulling and I see improvement every day.  Jack will make a great addition to any house hold.

1/30/07 - Norman has made his way to his new foster home in PA.  I have renamed one eyed Norman.  His new name is JACK.  He actually responds to that name.  He is separated into his own room rather than a crate since it sounded like he was cage aggressive to other dogs at the shelter.   He is eating and drinking well.  I was trying to wait a week to do introductions but BoJangles had other plans (jumping over a 35" baby gate).  He is fine with other dogs and cats.  Although his hair stands up when  approached from his right side (the side without the eye).    I keep everyone separated when I am not home with them. 

From Jack's Foster Mom's Mother who has also fostered and adopted more than one Boxer from BAR - I had the pleasure of meeting Kim G.’s newest foster over the weekend.  Although she did have a problem with getting him from Gary, because of her car breaking down, she brought who we call “One eyed Jack” home to her house.  What a great dog.  Although he has lumps, bumps, is emaciated and has only one eye he is a happy boy.  He wags his tail all the time.  He hugs Kim as if to say “thanks for fostering me.”  He gets along with Kim’s other dogs just fine.  Kim is also fostering Bo Jangles…who we call the Bo Man.  He is a riot. He is so entertaining and loves to please.  Although Bo likes to try to be in charge from time to time he is a good sport when he is not given that position.  I was very leery introducing Sugar to One Eyed Jack but it went fine.  One Eyed Jack was not all that interested.  Since Sugar is obsessed with Kim’s cats Sugar kind of ignored this guy too.  I did not introduce one eyed Jack to Gabby.  Gabby is 13 and really doesn’t have to meet him quite yet.  When a dog comes into Kim’s home it’s welcomed, bathed and loved immediately.  One eyed jack is very lucky and he seems to know it.  Since I love the seniors I am in love with this boy!!!  Someone is going to be very lucky to get him.  He is playful and if his lumps and bumps are removed and he fills out he will be quite cute.
