He goes by the name Bruiser. The picture was taken when he was approximately 2 ½ years old. He’ll be eight years old on December 18th, 2010, but he’s still a puppy at heart! He has just as much energy as he did when he was a young puppy! He’s a wonderful guard dog, and he is great with people, especially small children! He’s not only the first dog I’ve ever owned, but he’s the first pet that I’ve ever owned, and I couldn’t be happier!

When I lived in Tulsa, OK I worked with the Tulsa Boxer Rescue. Now that I live in Dallas, TX I work with the Legacy Boxer Rescue. Bruiser is such a big help when it comes to working with the rescue dogs, because he makes them feel at ease and he “shows them the ropes” when they come into a new foster home.

When we are not taking long walks, playing fetch or lounging on the couch, Bruiser loves to go to the park and play on the playground equipment! His favorite part of the play ground are the slides. He runs up the steps and then goes to whichever slide I point to, even the spiral slides! He puts his front paws out in front of him and slides right down, just like a little kid! Then he races back up to the top for another go round. He’s such a delight, and I don’t know what I’d do without him! He’s definitely my BEST FRIEND!!
