3/1/19 It has been a week since we picked him up and Nova has finally relaxed enough to show his true boxer qualities.  He is playful, goofy, very inquisitive and loves to play.  Initially, only my two boxers were getting major tail wiggle responses and real people were getting unsure glances, keeping his distance and what I call WOO'HOOINGGG.  When he wasn't sure of your intentions he would howl, muzzle in the air almost like to say,  "not sure who you are, must be cautious, are you a good guy?"  The first couple of days he was sad looking and quiet with that look of "where am I, where are my people?"  but his interactions were always positive with my Caesar and Bo.  So I have let him seek contact and attention at his speed which he is now evolved into coming when he is called, crating with no problems, and woo'hooing has all but gone away.  He seems to gravitate and seek attention from females quicker and was remarkably well behaved and friendly to the all female vet staff.  Can't wait until he gets neutered !  He is very much into marking, so my "third-eye" is always watching when he goes into that mode.  Nova has taken a little longer to decompress and transition here BUT...it has been fun and rewarding to see him let the "boxer antics and character " become present.  I forgot to mention....he is a drop dead GORGEOUS boxer!!!


2/22/19-Nova is a sweet 17 month old brindle male boxer that came into rescue today.  He is owner surrender as they were moving & cannot find apartment that will take dogs.  He lived with and was great with a Rottweiler and four kids ages 4 to 15.  He is said to be great with other dogs, but never been around cats so we won’t place him with cats as we have no way to test him with them. Nova is also crate trained.  He can be a bit shy with new people but never aggressive.  We will need to get him neutered & up to date on shots asap. More updates and pictures soon from his foster home.
