Josee & Jobee (NJ)
fostered in NJ
Jobee and Josee have settled in very quickly. They love to lie on the couches although they have learned they should only climb up when their sheet covers the couch. Jobee is very good at sharing - he has to be- if Josee wants to get on the couch with him, she will just climb up and sit on him until he moves over!
Jobee also enjoys lying on the grass in the sun, watching the world go by. Josee prefers to be in the house where she can see us, although she likes to know where Jobee is at all times.
At bedtime, they sleep on their beds at the foot of ours. Sometimes Josee will climb onto Jobee's bed and snuggle up with him until he gets too squashed and has to move. We found out that Jobee likes to be covered with an old towel
when he goes to bed, I think he feels the cold a little more than Josee and he looks so cute snuggled under it! They sleep through the night from 11:30 pm to 7:30 am although they do like to wake briefly for a full body lick at about 6:00 am!!
We call Jobee "The Prince" because he is so regal looking and has such decorum. We call Josee "The Diva" because she wants everything her own way! (We used to call her "The Keg" because she was as round as a keg, but she's much trimmer
We have never crated them, and I don't think they would like it much. In their previous home they had a dog door to come and go. They need a house with a fenced yard as they have been trained to chase squirrels and other such wildlife. When in the yard they show no interest in escaping beyond the fence and totally ignore the noisy dogs in our neighbor's yard.
They have a selection of toys which they play with sporadically. Neither of them seems to chase and fetch - they look at us like we're nuts if we throw a ball for them!! Josee likes to play with a Kong filled with peanut butter. Jobee obviously feels it's too much work for him so he ignores it. When I bring them into the office, they like to play with a squeaky stuffed penguin whenever I'm in the middle of a conference call - bless them....!!!
We really love them both. They have such sweet personalities, and the 2 of them together are the absolute best Boxers can offer. Having a pair of Boxers is not much work at all, and the rewards and love you get back are fantastic, and the two of them keep each other company.
Please consider giving these little love bugs a permanent home.
