From Zena's mom and dad:
We adopted Zena from GABR in January of 2015. She is our second Boxer from GABR. Our first Boxer, Clover, passed unexpectedly in October 2014. Zena filled a Boxer shaped hole in our home and hearts perfectly.
Zena came to us with dog anxiety issues. When we started training Zena she couldn't be anywhere near other dogs without her having strong reactions. For a while, we were actually outside practicing on the sidewalk while the rest of the class was inside! Once we could get her inside, we had to stay as far as possible from other dogs in class, but were able to gradually inch closer and closer. We took level 1 multiple times, but little by little she improved and now she has moved into level 4 and is working closely with other dogs and has even been off leash in class! It goes to show what a dog can accomplish with consistent training. In fact, this last weekend she won her first blue ribbon in a heel down competition!! Zena has always been very smart and capable, but the fact that she can follow the commands in the heel down competition and win it with other dogs right to her shows how far she has come with her anxiety issues. We are so proud of her!
Zena is a great sister too! Less than a year after adopting Zena, our first child was born very prematurely. Ever since our daughter has been home from the hospital, Zena has been wonderful with her. She is very gentle and loving around the baby. We couldn't ask for anything more.
We sure love Zena and are so thankful that GABR gives Boxers like her second chances!
If you've adopted from GABR, we'd love to feature your dog on the home page! Just send a photo and blurb.
