"Coty was the name of our very first boxer baby. I loved him for five years of his life. He passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly. He had not seemed sick. Coty was a sweet and lovable boxer boy. I have missed him every day since his passing."

7/08/18 – Memorial
It is with a sad and heavy heart that I had to help my foster, Coty, cross the Rainbow Bridge on 6/29/18. I had hoped to celebrate our three years together on July 11th, but it wasn’t meant to be. Your body could no longer do what you needed it to do and I could not bear to see you struggle or be confused. We used to celebrate your birthday on July 11th because that is the date your new life began. It was a life you always deserved. You were very underweight when you arrived, only 55 lbs, and covered in sores. Your previous life was now a story of the past. Your new life would be filled with lots of good food, good care, endless hugs and kisses, and any comfy bed, chair, sofa, or lap you wanted….and you wanted them all!! It was probably two years before you would lay on anything but a hard floor. You came to learn that a hand on your body was not a reason to flinch, but a welcoming pat on the head, a scratch behind your ear, or a gentle massage. You transformed into a beautiful 89 lb boy, but you were not without some health issues. I imagine your rough start in life took a toll on your body, but now you are free to run and play. I like to believe that you, Maverick, and Ginger are all running and playing together! Rest easy now, boy. I will miss you.

Coty has been in rescue for two years now and is still looking for a forever home. He has settled in well at his foster home and his skin is much better. Coty only itches and chews his paws on occasion. He only takes the Apoquel during these periods of time. Coty has really slowed down and enjoys napping in the house. He is very loving with his foster family, but does still take time to warm up to new people.

Coty continues to do well in his foster home. He receives Apoquel as needed for his skin. Coty is doing better with people coming into the home. His foster mom reports that he is a lovebug who really enjoys cuddling.

Coty is only on two medications now for his skin to keep him comfortable and he tolerates them well. He takes them every other day. His foster mom reports that Coty is a great dog and is very sweet. He has come a long way in foster and is very spoiled now. Coty is still nervous when new people come into the home, but settles down once he becomes comfortable with them.

Coty is responding very well to his new medication. He is no longer chewing on his paws or scratching. Coty is getting along great with his foster sister, a female boxer. He will follow up with the dermatologist next month to monitor his progress.

Coty visited the dermatologist on Monday. He was diagnosed with allergic dermatitis. Coty is starting a trial of medication and now has spray for his hair loss. He will be rechecked in a month to review his progress with the new treatment. Coty’s foster mom indicates that he is very loving and tolerant with his foster family, although he can be very nervous around strangers. We are hoping the new treatment will provide some relief for his skin and will continue to keep his page updated.

Coty is showing improvements in his foster home. The medication he is taking has almost completely healed his sores and Coty’s skin is finally looking a lot better. He will be going back to the vet for a recheck next week. Coty knows how to sit and will shake with both paws. He is very sweet and loves attention. Coty enjoys relaxing on the furniture or on pillows – the cushier the better! He does need monitored with food around other dogs and is still eating very quickly. Coty has gained some much needed weight. We will continue to update his page with Coty’s progress!

Coty has arrived at his new foster placement and is settling in well. Because of several sores all over his legs and paws that were not healing, Coty visited our rescue vet a week ago. The vet feels he possibly has an autoimmune condition called pemphigus complex. He just started medication to help treat this. His foster mom is also working to help Coty gain some much needed weight. We will update his page soon with his progress.

Coty’s foster siblings are not accepting him, so he is looking for a new foster placement. He has put on some much needed weight and his sores are healing. Coty’s current home reports that he is housebroken and does not need to be crated during the day. He has done well with the other dogs, but does need crated when eating. Coty loves squeaky toys and playing fetch. He is a very gentle boy. If you are able to provide a foster or forever home for Coty, apply today!

Coty has arrived at his new foster home, where he will be living with a male and female boxer. He has been given a bath and his sores are being treated with coconut oil to soothe them. Coty is very thin, so is receiving four small meals a day. He is a sweet boy who has definitely suffered neglect in his past. Coty will be given some TLC and we look forward to watching his progress. His personality is already starting to shine and he is becoming more playful with each day.

Coty will be neutered tomorrow and will then be arriving at his new foster home this weekend. He will be living with a male and female boxer. We will post an update and more pictures once his foster family gets to know Coty better.

Coty was found as a stray and is estimated to be around 8 years old. He is reported by the shelter to be good with other dogs. Coty only weighs around 45 lbs and needs to gain some weight. He will be brought up to date on all vet care soon and then transported into Maryland. Coty is in need of a foster home once he arrives. Please offer to foster this sweet, handsome senior boy!
