She is extremely talented and more lovely than any words can ever be put down on paper and she has wonderfully surprised me with the very stunning and unique artful creation of an Irish Wolfhound, inspired by our Bunker Dude. She is calling it ‘Art For A Cause’.

Mr. Maxwell!
 
Thank you to his wonderful perma-foster family for taking such amazing care of him!
 
AND no, I do not see a dog on a couch! 
 
Mr. Maxwell, you deserve all of the best things in life! 
 

Mr. Maxwell!

He was at the Vet for a recheck on August 28th.

He weighed 34.4 kgs(75.68 pounds).

We did a FNA on the one lump – a lipoma is what it is.

The other two growths are melanomas.

We did a repeat UA – infection is still present yet, slowly resolving – and the Vet has extended his Amoxicillin another two weeks once this round of antibiotics ends.

His head tilt is not yet explained and it has been confirmed that he does have some neuro deficits.

So, today, he went to his foster home and while our intent is to have him perma-fostered, his Vet did fall in love with him as did his daughter who is back from school. His wife is not yet ready for another dog – they have owned boxers for decades – AND that is ok!

He is such a sweetheart and having him in our own home this past while made us miss Mr. Potterman, Boxer extraordinaire!

Got him!
 
Mr. Maxwell and I are now making the drive home.
 
Thanks again to Tamee/Jane plus Kara of Just Paws for all they did for him!
 
Thank you to Rachel for meeting up with me to get him closer to us!
 
What a handsome old soul!
 

BHRR’s Maxwell could use some support!
 
He has begun to urinate more frequently once again and is drinking a lot. He finished his round of antibiotics a week ago.
 
We have him heading into the Vet via his current foster on Monday.
 
We will do a repeat Urinalysis, send urine off for culture & sensitivity, and do a blood glucose test.
 
This is the ~10-year-old boxer that was abandoned in a building and found starving, plus was treated for HW by the wonderful rescue that first took him in.
 
We were approached to see if we would consider bringing him into our rescue, and he is the sweetest boy! 
 
Donations made to his care can be made via PayPal to gwen@birchhaven.org or via email transfer to contactbhrr@gmail.com
 
AND he could also use your best wishes!
 

We have a date for BHRR’s Maxwell(Max)’s arrival!
 
He is the ~10 year old Boxer(possiblex) that was found abandoned and starving in a building, and diagnosed to be HW+.
 
He was treated for heartworm, and now most recently for an UTI.
 
We were reached out to by a wonderful r/q rescue to see if we could do a rescue transfer to us.
 
Thank you to Jane, Tamee of Just Paws for being there for him!
 
AND thank you to Rachel for assisting us with transport to get him closer to us on August 19th!
 
Look how handsome he is?!!! 
 

Max AKA BHRR’s Maxwell is heading our way sometime after August 16th.
 
We sincerely hope that BHRR’s Percival’s pending adoption can be completed by then with COVID restrictions finally being lifted.
 
We most likely will require transport assistance and when things fall into place more, we will be able to post.
 
For those who did not see our first post re: him:
 
He is an ~10 year old Boxer(possible x).
*He was found in an abandoned building, starving and Heartworm positive. 
*He has been treated for heartworm and has been residing in a lovely foster home with a great r/q rescue who has now reached out to us for assistance.
*This foster home has adopted from this rescue in the past and this is their first time fostering. They are feeling a bit stressed at this time as 1) while Max is no longer marking when they are home, he appears to be doing some urinating when they are away from the house (he is now on antibiotics for an UTI) and 2) he is pushing to have love/attention. He is a Boxer! 
 
We have been told that he is great with dogs – have a video and he is still active! – and also cats. He does not resource and does have a bit of a head bobble. Cause not yet known and may never know.
 
He is a sweet handsome older gent that needs a safe place to lay his bones and to be giving caring kind hands of love!
 
He deserves what remaining time he has left to be of nothing but the best!
 
Thank you to Just Paws (Tamee & Jane) for all that they do! It is a real privilege to help!

They are feeling a bit stressed at this time as 1) while Max is no longer marking when they are home, he appears to be doing some urinating when they are away from the house (we will make sure that there is no underlying medical reason as to why) and 2) he is pushing to have love/attention.

We would love to bring him in – we are hoping to finally be able to move on BHRR’s Percival’s approved adoption over the next week or so(Thanks COVID!)

He deserves what remaining time he has left to be of nothing but the best and we take care of his bills.
