Dryfus is new to BRQ and looking for his perfect forever home 

Hi everyone! Meet Dryfus! He was rescued from a high kill pound outside of Montreal and he is settling in nicely with his foster mom. Dryfuss is young, about 2 yrs old, and he is very loving and affectionate - typical boxer! He is getting along with his boxer foster brothers. He is quiet  and clean in the house. Dryfuss did show some separation anxiety when he came in to rescue but it seems to be subsiding as he gets used to his new routine. This is very common with rescue dogs. Dryfuss will be exposed to cats soon so we'll update on that as soon as we know more.

Update on darling Abby from her awesome parents, Joe and Moira. 

Hello Boxer Rescue,
This is Abby and I thought I should bring you up to date on my life. You can probably guess I can’t type so I am dictating this to Joe, my new man-parent, and he is typing it for me.
It is exactly two months since I came here (April 21) and I want you to know that my new parents are treating me very well. There are two cats living here and sometimes they hiss at me but I will win them over in time. These people feed me very well and I am now a trim, but muscular, 58 pounds. You would be surprised to see that my ribs no longer stick out from under my skin. Here, take a look.
I have a beautiful bed where I sleep at night, right beside my parents. The woman-parent, Moira, lets me get into the people-bed every morning after she gets up and then I cuddle up with Joe until she leaves. She also lets me up on the couch; you will remember how much I love that. I have heard them telling other humans how pretty I am. We all know that’s the truth
but it is still nice to hear it from them.
There are parks nearby where I walk every day with Joe. At first I stayed on the lead and that was fine with me; I don’t like to be alone. Now, however, I am allowed to run free. At the start of our walks I do a big Boxer burn in the park but then I come back and walk right beside Joe. I don’t want to lose him.
I have decided to keep Joe and Moira and to let them live with me in this new home. I miss you but I am very happy here so do not worry about me. So thanks to all the BRQ people who were concerned with my welfare. I will never forget you and Joe will post the odd photo on the BRQ Facebook from time to time.
Boxer wiggles to all,
