Gary and his wife Nicole are expecting a beautiful new baby, but Nicole’s condition during this pregnancy is making it difficult for the family to keep up with their other young children, and their two beloved Boxers, Champ and Eden.  Gary and Nicole are hoping to find an awesome family to care for Champ and Eden over the next few months, starting ASAP – 7/15/2022, near their home in Bear, DE.

Champ is a 9 year old, 75lbs, neutered male Boxer.  Champ is microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations.  He has a grain allergy, and only eats grain-free foods.  Champ is crate and leash trained and knows commands for sit, down, stay, and “go home.”  Champ is a quiet dog; the only noises you might hear from him are whining or barking if he’s separated from you and wants to come be with you, like after doing his business in the backyard!  Champ gets along well with other dogs and kids, but Gary and Nicole think it would be best for Champ and his sister to be the only pets in their foster home – they simply like to be the stars of the show.  Gary says, “He’s a big baby, lol. He always looks sad but he gets very excited to love you and cuddle. He loves coming under your legs like a cat to be pet. A perfect foster family would have either 1 or no other pets for Champ to be the center of attention. He loves all people no matter the age and has been around our 4 children and has loved them as his own.”

Eden is a 9 year old, 65lbs, spayed female Boxer.  Eden is also microchipped and up to date on her vaccinations.  Due to complications from her spay surgery, Eden has “leaks” and should have her water intake monitored throughout the day.  Gary and Nicole will also provide some doggy diapers for her fosters to use in the home.  Eden is crate and leash trained and knows commands for sit, down, stay, and “go home.”  Gary says, “Eden likes to interact with other dogs, but sometimes is a little nervous and her presence can be a little intimidating to another dog. So if introducing her to another dog or pet, it needs to be done slowly and with an adult who understands dog behavior and can control and manage the interactions.  Eden is the center of attention, and she will come and steal the show at any opportunity. She loves loves loves to cuddle and just be with us. She loves licking you, and is always a happy girl!”
