    Smile Update on Saxon

    Hey everyone

    Just thought I'd give an update on how my Boxer Saxon is going! (for those who don't know, he is my stepbrothers who used to live with us before he ran off to live with his gf who is 11 years younger than him. Saxon was very underweight and his ribs were showing.)

    Saxon will be turning 2 at the end of the year, so I think (being a boxer) his chest has still got a little bit of growing left.

    I have been feeding him 2 cups of kibble morning and night (the other 2 dogs just get the 1 cup). Gradually, over the weeks, I am seeing less rib, and a very happy puppy

    He is due for a Vet check soon, and I think he is due for a Booster shot. Come to think of it, I don't think he ever had one.

    His mood has greatly improved since his dad (my stepbrother) ran off, which was about 4 or 5 weeks ago now. It seems like he has adopted me as his new owner

    I am going to weigh him again tonight, and let you all know his current weight, and if any one could give me any indication as to whether he needs to put on more etc, it will be greatly appreciated!

    Ciao!

    Me again - well we had the big weigh in for all 3 dogs.

    Axle (Cattle Dog) weighed in at 29.9kg's. I think it's time someone lost some weight.

    Oscar (Kelpie x Border Collie) weighed in at 26.6 kg's. Average.

    Saxon (Boxer) weighed in at 25.5. He has put on 1 and half kilo's since he adopted me as his new owner

    Sounds like you are doing a fabulous job with him. If you plan on keeping him as your own, will you be getting his microchip transferred into your name?

    Thanks!!

    We aren't sure yet - my stepbrother reckons he is coming home this weekend, but seeing as it is Sunday and we haven't seen or heard anything yet, we have no idea. If he doesn't come back soon, we most definitely will be doing that! My stepbrother had a tantrum when we suggested giving him to a new family, so we said we would keep him, and now he has run off and left the poor little thing, so it sounds to me like he doesn't really care that much.

    But I will keep updating if things change!
