Christmas Miracle in progress

But it needs your help! See, just after Christmas, LBR heard about a family in desperate need of help. Could you say no to this face?

Her name is Noel. She ended up in a shelter at Christmas with her five four-week-old pups! That's no way to spend Christmas. So LBR sprang into action to give her a Christmas miracle. Meet the family! First, the boys, Blitzen and Frankincense.

And then their sweet sisters! Joy, Snowball, and Vixen.

What a grreat Christmas miracle, huh? Well, unfortunately, their happily ever after is in jeopardy. See, one by one the pups have been rushed to the dogtor, and all five of them are being treated for parvo. :(  Momma Noel is very skeered for her babies. We promised her we'd take very good care of them.

So how can you help? These babies need the power of the paw something fierce! Please flood them with all the good wishes you can manage, because they need every bit they can get. And if you can spare any green papers to donate, that would be really pawesome too. It costs $1,000 - 1,500 to treat one pup for parvo, and we've got five! :(  (If you want to make sure your donation goes straight to the pups, select Other Amount and put "For Noel's Pups" or something like that in the "item description" field. You can also Paypal directly to info@savetheboxers.com.) Please spread the word and help our Christmas family find their miracle!

Update: We lost poor little Blitzen. His little body just couldn't keep fighting. :(  Run free and strong at the Bridge, buddy.


  1. OMD..This is so sad about the pups being sick. That's no way to start what could be a wonderful long life in a happy home. We send all the POTP and all the prayers and love that we can. Hope the new year will bring the little guys and their Mom a lot of happiness.

  2. That's a sad story , but hope it gets better . Happy New Year 2014, hope this year brings all the best things to you and your family :)

  3. Mom Kim here - you have all the POTP and prayers that me and the Beaglebratz can muster. That sweet family need to have a Happy New Year too!

  7. WE hope that this all works out and that they ALL have a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    PeeS... word is being spread.

  8. We are sending heavy duty healing purrs and woos to the Christmas pups our paws are crossed that they pull through. We are so sorry Mom Noel is worried about them but thankful she has you to help with getting them healthy again.

  9. *sob* I am so very sorry about Blitzen. Parvo is a killer. I do not see any way to donate specifically to this Mom and her pups using the donate button. I am only interested in donating to help the pups survive. How can I do that?

    1. Thanks so much, Savannah! If you click on "Other Amount," when it takes you to the paypal screen you can enter how much you want to donate. Just put "For Noel's Pups" or something like that in the item description field and we'll know where to direct it! You can also Paypal directly to info@savetheboxers.com and list who the donation is for on the description field.
