2019 and 2020 have been crazy years for our family but the biggest joy has come in the form of our rescued white boxer Lexi Lou! After losing our first NCBR boxer Juno in August of 2019, we weren't sure we were ready to rescue a new pup. But with losing both of our mothers in a span of two months, we knew we needed some extra unconditional love.
Lexi was described as a "hot mess" by NCBR. She came in the year before and needed lots of care, I mean, lots of care. Skin issues, surgery needed on both knees and a cancerous mass, thyroid and autoimmune...yep, a hot mess. Lexi spent a year in a loving foster home that attended to all her needs. Lexi's medical expenses were in the 10's of thousands. After adopting her, we transferred all our caregiving experience to our new baby girl. We began making her food to give her the best possible nutrition, took her to physical therapy, and followed the advice of her new wholisitic vet.
Today Lexi is thriving! Her legs are healing and growing strong. She couldn't even jump on the sofa when we brought her home. Today, she can jump into a car. Her coat had these icky brown rough patches but now they are all gone. We are amazed almost daily at her growth and healing.
So, I strut for Lexi and all the "Lexi's" out there waiting for a furever home. Waiting for the foster who will love them while they are evaluated, medically or emotionally treated. Waiting for the family that will take them on whatever the issue and give them a wonderful, healthy life. I strut for NorCal Boxer Rescue who actively initiates and funds this amazing process. I strut for the volunteers who are the backbone of NCBR and give of themselves to give these beautiful boxers a second chance!
