Mercy's story

Hi there! My name is Mercy. I used to have another name, but I don't like to think about that now. See, after giving more than eight loyal years to my family, they brought me to a place called an animal shelter. I don't know why they brought me there, and I heard the shelter workers saying they were full and could do something called eu-tha-nize me any time. But my family just left me there anyway! I was so sad, and really scared! I missed my family, there were no soft beds to snuggle on or toys to play with, and all the other dogs were really loud! Sometimes the shelter workers would come and take one of the other dogs away and not bring them back. I hope they went some place nice, but the shelter workers seemed so sad...

But then yesterday things got all better! The nice lady came back to see me. She came by on Saturday and played with me and snuggled me and said I was beautiful. All the things a girl likes to hear! She said she was with a boxer rescue group and would try to find me a new family. I like the sound of that! Then yesterday she came BACK! She knelt down in front of my kennel and said she'd found a new foster home for me!

I was so excited! A foster home of my own, where I can have soft beds to snuggle in, and toys to play with, and best of all a family to love me! The nice lady said I can stay with them until I find a forever family of my own. It may take a long time to find one, since a lot of people don't think about bringing a wonderful mature silver lady like me into their home, but I know my perfect family is out there!

I even found a cute new friend! I got to hang out with my new friend Casey and his sister Cinderella before I went to my foster home. I think he's really cute! And he let me write up a blog post all my own. Isn't that nice of him?

So thank you, Legacy Boxer, for taking me out of that scary place and giving me a loving home to take care of me until I can find my furever family. And furever family, if you're reading this, please come find me soon! I can't WAIT to meet you!
