Apache's Foster Journey - Rainbow Bridge 12/9/04
12/9/04 - It is with heavy
heart that I must let everyone know that at 6:15 tonight I will be taking
my current foster, Apache, to the vet to be laid to rest. I love this dog
with all of my heart and it has been a very long hard decision for me. I
wanted to give it the best go that I could for his sake and kept hoping he
would end up ok but he was very aggressive with my 14 yr old and I just
can not have that in my home.
I can't believe I am still here waiting for a new mom and/or dad :o((
Everyone who meet me thinks I am the most beautiful dog they have ever
seen. I really am getting sad thinking there is no one out there for me.
All these other dogs come and go and I sit and wait. I am a real good
boy...I love all the other dogs and my family. I like to lean on you or
just be next to you. I will go in the other room and lay down all alone if
you like too....I just want you to be happy and love me.
continues to do well in my home. He does not however care for the cats and
has started to go after them so a home with no cats is a necessity.
have been SPRUNG!!! Yup I am now in a home with 6, yup 6, other dogs and
am loving every minute of it!!
6/25/04 - This morning Apache was moved to the Trainers in Queens till another foster home takes him in. Apache is a sweet love bug who loves walks, rides in the car, and companionship. We miss him already and we wish Apache the best in his journey to find his forever home.
6/21/04 - Hi everyone I have to tell you all what has gone on in the last week. Foster mom took my #1 to the vet for it to be checked since I have some problems going. Well my final results came back today and I am fine. I am feeling much better. I have given in to the resident pup and I now play tug of war with her. We played yesterday for hours. I guess her annoying me finally paid off. I am very protective of the property and of my fur sister. Boy does she tease me. I must admit I do bark loud and I scare the mailman. But I am really a love bug just looking for someone to scratch me. P.S. I put on a few pounds and hair is growing back in on my scars. Oh yeah and my ear is completely healed.
6/11/04 - Hi everyone, it's me again. I just wanted to let you all
know out there that the vet said my blood test was negative whatever that
means. I'm feeling better all ready. Foster mom just figured out
6/10/04 - It's been a week and I am loving my new life. I don't have
to sleep on concrete anymore. I have a really comfy bed all to myself.
This is of course till the resident pup jumps on it. But I leave her be
because Mom makes her go to her own bed. Foster mom took me to the vet
again today because I not feeling 100% better. I had to have a blood test
done and I have some pills for my poops. My results should be in tomorrow
so if mom doesn't mind I'll let everyone know what's going on with me.
6/4/04 - Hi everyone Apache here. I have to tell you today's events.
For starters, I slept straight through the night, no tummy aches. That was
of course till my foster mom was getting ready to go to work. I got sick
to my tummy and I had the poops. Foster mom called my aunt to pick up my
puke so she wouldn't get sick. Thanks Auntie. But then foster mom had to
go to work and it was crate time. Well
6/3/04 - Hello everyone my name is Apache. Please don't be intimidated by my large appearance, I am quite the gentleman. What I love to do best is eat, drool, sleep, relax, and be scratched. My foster mom thought I didn't know my name but I do. I just wasn't listening yesterday because I was confused. I don't know why my family gave me up. Besides my name, I know: sit, stay, back, no, and come. Last night I got sick to my tummy several times. My foster mom must like me, cause she got sick with me too. Since I was sick, we went to the vet today. All my tests results were negative. I have to take some pills for my poops and I have to have cream on my brown ear. You see, my previous family left me outside all the time and flies chewed on my brown ear and it has not healed yet. Oh and my legs are bruised up from being on concrete. Foster mom said I was fabulous at the vet, even when the needle poked me. Even though my former family said I was a purebred Boxer, the vet said I'm not a purebred boxer but a mix, whatever that is. Foster mom believes one of my parents was a Great Dane. The vet said I need to gain a few pounds, I don't mind cause I'm really hungry. I met a cat but he did not like me. I like other dogs, big and small. I'm not into playing but I love to relax and get a few scratches from a human. I love kids. I'm a really good boy. My extended foster family loves me. I'm calm, cool, and collective. Oh yeah, I'm house broken. I'm not a fan of the crate but I'll go in if it's a must. So, if you have extra leg room in your home and in your heart, would you please consider giving me a permanent forever home? Please..
6/2/04 - Everyone welcome Apache, a 6.5 white, male boxer with a few brown spots. Apache was surrendered to a local shelter because the family recently had a new baby and could not give Apache the attention needed. So far, Apache has adjusted well and for the most part is tolerating the resident pup. He does not want to play with her at all. He lets her know to back off with a loud bark and she gets the hint. He has followed my every footstep. A worker at the shelter said Apache was very scared there. He is a big boy, calm, with a loud bark. He seems to miss human companionship terribly. He
has given a boxer wiggle and likes to lean on you. No boxer kisses yet. He did very well in the car. He loves human attention and will make a great addition to anyone's home. For now, I think he would be best with an older dog as opposed to a young pup.
