Cornwall and South Devon Boxer Rescue helps any boxer that needs our attention and care. The age of the dogs that come into our charity can range from anything between 9 months and 12 years old. With the more mature dogs that we rescue, insurance can be impossible (or very expensive) for their new family to secure, especially if they come with existing illnesses. So Cornwall and South Devon Boxer Rescue created a system which provides an opportunity for all boxers, despite their ages, with a chance of finding their forever home - by it (the charity) supporting any existing healthcare requirements. It’s something we call our ‘Forever Foster’ scheme which is designed especially to care for the older boxers that can’t get pet insurance. As is the case with the dogs listed below, and with the others that we will continue to help in the future, 100% of the donations the Charity receives are spent on caring for the boxers in our care. Any donations you can provide, whatever the amount, will enable us to continue our tireless efforts rescuing the boxers who need us and would be hugely appreciated! Thank you!
What can we say about this one?! He has a thyroid disorder and has to have blood tests and takes tablets every day. Samba has a very bad flatulence problem but his lovely owner loves him just as he is. He is so young at heart, and the charity’s Dog Welfare Officer (Angie) has been to see him quite a few times and each time she has said he’s running round like a typical boxer! She said, “He’s growing old disgracefully and having so much fun out and about doing it!”
Happily living with Jo having a spoilt life. He loves the beach and came to us with no history of going to the vets since a puppy. He had to have flea and worm treatment, and special medical treatment to clear up the fungus sores on his face folds below his eyes. Bennie also had a couple of operations to cut away his gums as they had grown over his teeth - some of which, sadly, had to be removed. He has recently had to have a second operation to improve his health. This is an ongoing situation with him so hopefully with Jo’s care and TLC his last few years will be happy and healthy.
Wonderful, Neo ...The star of our John O’Brien Memorial Dog Show last year in 2016. During a routine health check-up that all dogs go through when they are surrendered to the charity, we were told that Neo had to have nearly every tooth removed. Sadly he hadn’t received the medical care that he needed in his previous home – which resulted in urgent action needing to be taken. Worse still, once the teeth were removed, a cancerous lump was also discovered. Neo is one of the worst cases that the charity has had to deal with, but he also demonstrates the types of cases (and costs) that the charity takes on. Sadly Neo went over the Rainbow Bridge at the end of January 2017
