This is Bigsby, a beautiful fawn 3 1/2 year old boxer boy who came to BLR because his family members had said allergies. So sad, poor Bigsby was confused and scared. But he is now living with a wonderful foster family who have been teaching him to gain more confidence. He is beginning to trust humans again and has come a long way since he was welcomed into BLR. This gentle, sweet boy will be shy at first when meeting humans but warms up after a short while when he realizes he is safe and loved. He will also benefit greatly from living with a confident and secure canine companion who will guide him and show him "the way". We have learned that he needs to pick his family and have the right dynamics for him to be comfortable and happy. Bigsby loves to play, especially fetch, enjoys going on walks and, oh my, does this boy love to swim. We think he was an Olympic swimmer before he came to BLR (haha). When he sees the leash come out, he gets all excited and does his boxer burns in the yard telling everyone "Okay, I'm ready for my walk". He is doggie social, living with two cats also, crate trained, house trained and a really gentle boy who is looking for a forever home where he can be loved. Patience, kindness and understanding is all it takes for Bigsby to be happy and secure- Is that you?
