See, as a rescue group, Legacy Boxer Rescue doesn't just find new homes for dogs. We get dogs from somewhere, after all! So there are dogs surrendered to us and to shelters, and we hear all sorts of reasons for it. And one in particular really scares me -- apparently, boxers eat babies! I know, I know, I could hardly believe it at first, but we hear all the time, "We just love Fuzzums so much, but we're having a baby and he has to go." Yup, there's no point even risking seeing how the dog handles the new arrival, because everyone knows it's just a matter of time before he starts eying that kid as a snack.
But then I started thinking -- where did this horrible plague come from? I mean, there aren't any baby humans at my house, but my Aunt Joni brings them to visit me a lot, and it's so much fun licking the crumbs off their hands and hearing them giggle when I play. And when they start to get older and can play with me, oh my dogness, it's so much FUN!! So I've done an exhaustive survey of LBR fosters and alums to find out if this baby-eating plague is really so prevalent. And because I'm a completely non-biased, professional journalist, I'm not going to present a conclusion. I'm just going to give you the facts, and you decide.
Baby-eaters or baby sitters?
LBR foster Bernie -- bedtime stories or bedtime snack?
LBR alum Bo -- kisses or taste-testing?
LBR foster Buttons -- is he helping with homework, or reading a recipe?
LBR alum Elka taking her children for a car ride, or picking up dinner?
LBR alum Harlee
LBR foster Heidi in a sneak attack
LBR alum Jake (He's the one on the right)
LBR foster Leddy keeping her boy warm . . . but for what purpose?
LBR alums Nike, Beau, and LeeBoy keeping close watch on their charge -- or their snack!
LBR alum Piper
LBR alum Rebel is not letting that baby out of her sight.
LBR foster Rosalie
LBR alum Tulip is starting young!
Well, there you have it! Only the highest journalistic standards from LBR, I promise! So what's your verdict? Is there any hope for boxers as family dogs, or should we just admit they're all baby-eaters after all?
