Please meet another Hope for the Holidays Boxer, Bongo! Bongo is a 4 year old male, purebred boxer with natural ears and docked tail. Bongo has a sad tale to tell. Apparently he was a stray, either dumped somewhere or he wandered off. In any event, no one came to look for him or claim him. Fortunately, he wandered into a rescue volunteer’s backyard in North Carolina who took him in and began nursing him back to health.
He is current on vaccines, and is crate trained. The main priority of his foster family at this point in time, is to add some much needed weight on him. He will be neutered this week. He will be arriving shortly in New Jersey. We are therefore in need of a foster home for him in Jersey. Bongo is cautious when he meets new people and therefore a home with young children is likely not the best situation for him. His little nub wags non stop when in the company of other dogs. He is heartworm negative. He seems, at this point, to be potty trained. He is an extremely sweet boxer boy, thoroughly enjoying something we all take for granted….Heat! As we learn more about him, we will keep you updated. Fostering a Boxer that has had such a rough life, and watching him transform into an awesome family member, just given the chance, is more rewarding than you could imagine. Please help us continue the Southern Hospitality he’s now receiving, once he comes to NJ. Let’s give this guy the hope for a great New Year….one he truly deserves. The foster application is found at the top of this page and the Adoption Application, if you choose to adopt him is under the Adoption Tab also found at the top of this page. Please keep in mind, the more people willing to open up their homes to fostering, the more Boxers like Bongo, we can save.
