Cori’s ex-husband loves Boxers soooo much that he adopted four of them ~ one from the Fayetteville, Arkansas pound and three others to make a nice set. Cori never set out to have four Boxers, but when she found herself single three years ago, she did right by the dogs. She found home for three and kept Maggie, as she found a deaf dog is hard to place.
Now, Cori has a crisis. Six months ago, she started trying to place Maggie. Cori she has to leave the country on March 19th for a job. She will be gone for a year and she has no one to keep or adopt Maggie. Unfortunately, Cori didn’t know about the rescue community until a few days ago and has just gotten hooked up with this resource. Maggie is a darling dog, LOVES kids, and she is great with other dogs.
Maggie will chase a laser light and when it disappears, she stares at it. I mean really, if quantum physics cannot explain everything about light, why should Maggie be able to figure out where the light went?? Maggie likes to air lick people; she will sit and lick people, without ever actually touching them. Her tongue gets within 1/4 inch from the person but never touches. WHY can my dogs not learn to do this?
Maggie knows hand signal for “sit” but she is used to cueing off of other dogs. We don’t know how she is with cats, and Cori said that some kids may be intimidated by a big dog who likes to be so close to them.
Lone Star Boxer Rescue would like to help place Maggie, but they have NO foster homes. If you could foster this darling dog, Lone Star can help. Alicia Ligon with Lone Star is copied, as is Cori. Please pass this on and consider helping Maggie. There are only 10 days to go before Cori is at a very hard choice on March 19th .
