Former foster Jaxx is doing well - here's a silly video of this gentleman chewing on his bone after his breakfast. We think he chews very nicely. (although he did steal the bone from his sister Josie!)
Here are some photos of Vic & Bruno supervising dinner preparation last night. Bruno is obsessed with food, and Vic is obsessed with balls. Everyone has been sniffing through the gates at each other, and I let my dominant female meet the boys today. It went VERY well. She likes Bruno best, Vic hardly got a sniff.
Thank you so much Chris Cassner for taking these beautiful boys into your home!
We welcome Jill Charles to NEBTR. She writes, “I have 2 bugs, 2 boxers and 3 sons. I am a vet tech and work at a animal hospital.I have fostered for 5 years. I love to foster. I'm very excited to help any way I can. So what ever you need, let me know.”
Two more shopping days left!!!

Fostering is so important and so rewarding and we give Vic and Bruno's foster mom, Chris, big kudos for catching and correcting this issue early on.
In other news, Sherry has lost almost two pounds!!! She looks great and has so much energy! The vet was very impressed. She now weighs in at 21.5 pounds! I've also noticed a significant difference in her skin and coat as well. She use to shed like crazy and she had very dry, flaky skin and now she's shiny and silky and hardly sheds at all. She's such a happy girl! She loves hiding and burying my other dogs toys on them :) She still does need to be separated from my resident dogs but she will often play through the gate with my Boston and lately I've witnessed a few play bows which is HUGE for her! She's good with my ten year old toy fox terrier because he couldn't be more uninterested in her so the two of them can be trusted together as long as there isn't food involved. She's only had one instance where she chased him away from her food bowl. She didn't attack him but she made it very clear to stay away from her stuff. That's all for now!

Hi I Stewie. I.m almost 9 months old and my foster Mom says I’m adorable. I’m still working on housetraining but I haven’t had an accident in almost 2 weeks so Im. almost there. I’m still kind of in the chewing stage too so my foster Mom and Dad watch me like a hawk when I’m chasing my foster brother around the dining room table. When my foster brother gets tired out my foster Dad is always ready to play my favorite games, tug and fetch. My foster Mom told me she is going to find a great home for me with a brother or sister around my age that likes to rough house as much as I do. She says I’d do best in a home without young children (12+). We don’t know how I am with cats but I do like to chase squirrels in the yard. I love to snuggle with my family on the sofa and sleep in bed with them every night so I would really like my new family to have that in common with me.

Little update on former foster...now failed foster and adopted happy BT Popeye, now Cusie.
"We have had a fun year with our new boy. Cusie came to us underweight, sick, frightened, and possibly abused. In the last 3 months he has really come out of his shell and his personality is charming. He is super sweet and loves meeting new people.
He has had so many new experiences this past year. We travel quite frequently but going camping this summer was the highlight. He is just pure joy to watch swimming and splashing-he is a total water boy! He has a brother, Boston, and the two are the bestest of buds. We are so blessed to give this little guy the life that all souls deserve to live.
Thank you very much! Jackie Foster
I took Brady and Rudy to the vet today for their first checkup since the were surrendered to me on Sat. they did really well. Rudy weighs 26.8 lbs. and Brady weighs 24.4 lbs.
Rudy, being the older dog, has some dental issues with his teeth in the way back. heavy tarter and gum inflammation and he may need to have some teeth extracted. he also has a heart murmur. some allergy issues too. but that was about it. he is up to date on all his shots so he didn't need the titer test. stool sample was negative for worms. he is getting neutered on Thursday.
Brady, the younger of the 2, was a little antsy but did well also. he got the titer test done as he was due for some vaccines. he got a grade a report from the vet. he is also going to be neutered on Thursday.
Just a quick update on the little guy. Augie is doing well except the rash on his tummy is back and as he is already on Benedryl I will try a couple of diet changes. & if needed go to the vet.
Augie kisses to you!

Happie and Zelda looking like they're behaving
What a wonderful happily ever after for these two! They met in foster care with Cynthia and Craig Musselman, became bonded, and were adopted by Diane Kratz as a pair. A wonderful success story! And look how happy they are!
