Do you know why LBR is called Legacy Boxer Rescue? Our mission statement says, "For every life there is a legacy. In many instances the legacy passed down is not as it should be and requires help from caring souls to be fulfilled. It is our belief that all Boxers should have a legacy befitting of their wonderful enthusiasm and love of life."
What that means is we're not just trying to find any old home for our dogs. We're looking for their forever home, where they'll be able to have a legacy of love and caring. That also means that once you're an LBR dog, you're part of our family forever!!
This is Tanzy and Buddy. Tanzy was adopted from LBR in 2006, and Buddy was adopted in 2007. They've been together ever since, living with their momma Becky. She loved them very much, and we knew they'd found the legacy they deserved!
Sadly, their momma was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a very fast-moving and deadly cancer. While she was fighting, she took so much comfort from Tanzy and Buddy. She wanted to make sure that once she was gone, they would have a home and be able to stay together. Unfortunately, no one in her family was able to take them in. But when Becky passed away this week, LBR went right away to pick them up and bring them back into our family.
We're committed to finding Tanzy and Buddy a new home together. It won't be easy -- senior pups are always harder to place, and it's never easy finding a home for a pair -- but we will fulfill their momma's last wish. Tanzy and Buddy are Becky's legacy, and they're LBR's too.
If you know anyone in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area who might be interested in these two grreat dogs, please contact Legacy Boxer Rescue!
