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!
