I wanted a dog for years but none seemed to be the one, and I never could commit, until I saw Cypress on the LDCRF website (a friend sent me the link) and I suddenly knew that I needed him. I hadn’t really thought about the fact that I could be going home with a dog, but when I met him, I couldn’t leave him. I don’t know his story, his past, his history, but I do know that he was well taken care of and well-trained and that makes me happy because he is such a sweet soul. He would spend all day at my side if he could, and that is an amazing feeling. Sure he rests his head on the dinner table when we are eating, but those big eyes just get me every time. He really is a gentle giant (he’s 75+ pounds of muscle…). He loves everyone and everything thing he passes, and has been known to bark at a road sign…;) I definitely got lucky in adopting him – he is a diamond in the rough and I rush home from work everyday to see his little butt wiggle with excitement. and yes, he is a boxer and thank you, you’re right, he is handsome – these statements have become a common part of my vocabulary these days. It’s been just over a month that we’ve been together, my amazon account is now full of dog purchases, he’s currently snoring on my leg – and I still might go as far as saying it’s been the best month of my life. Thank you LDCRF for changing my life!
