05/06/17 – Peanut and her brother Oscar are doing well in their foster home. They have gotten some much needed medical care, and are enjoying life with their foster dad and their new hand made blankets and toys that volunteers have sent them. They are very funny and entertaining, and loving boxers. You get a whole new look at what rescue is when you rescue seniors.
04/25/17 -This is the primitive method attempted by her prior owner to remove this growth. No one should ever attempt to self treat a growth like this. She will have this and maybe a few others properly removed when she is spayed.
Peanut and her brother Oscar were posted on craig’s list looking for a new home. We were told that the family was losing their home and they needed to find these two 8 year old boxers a new home.
Peanut and Oscar are very close having come from the same litter. They are never out of each other’s sight, and we are looking to place them together in their new home. They grew up and were living with children 2 and 9 yrs old. Oscar is the happy go lucky one, and Peanut takes a few minutes to announce all visitors and then becomes your best friend.
It became immediately obvious that Peanut was in need of some medical attention. She has a golf-ball sized growth hanging from her front leg, and we were shocked to find out that the owner had tied dental floss around the stem of the growth in an apparent attempt to remove it. With just the movement necessary to get her to her temp foster, and then to the vet, the floss had started to slice it’s way through the stem. The vet examined Peanut, cut off the floss, stopped the bleeding, prescribed antibiotics, and scheduled her for her spay surgery and removal of the growth and probable removal of some teeth.
With all she went through, she was so good with everyone handling her, and the staff loved her. Please consider contributing to her medical bills and cross your fingers that the growth is benign.
