Available for adoption through Northeastern Boxer Rescue
fostered in NY
2/28/08 - Clover has been adopted!!
The latest from Clover's foster mom and dad:
"Clover is finally ready for her forever home!
This little girl has won the hearts of everyone she meets. She still needs to put on a few more pounds, but we are diligently working on that! It must be all the great exercise she is getting with her foster siblings.
Clover has settled into a routine. She has been doing so well with her training and now does great in her crate (as long as she gets her kong with peanut butter! ) Clover still likes to bark when someone comes to the door, but is always happy to see them when they come inside.
Her name says it all; Clover's new family will be very lucky to have her."
Latest update on Clover from her foster family:
"After a full week in her foster home, Clover has made herself at home! She gets up right when the alarm clock goes off and lets us know its time to get out of bed and let her out! She loves eating her food with a little warm water in it and is proving to have quite the appetite; which is a good thing because she could use a few more pounds on her.
Clover loves to cuddle in bed and then sleep on the doggy bed with Diesel at night. She has claimed the love seat in the living room, but is always willing to share. Clover has not displayed any aggression towards male strangers and absolutely adores her foster daddy. Clover still doesn't like being in the crate, but is doing much better in it. She can tolerate at least 3 hours without going outside, but definitely prefers to be with people!
Clover now sits, lays down and gives paw on command...she is such a smart girl! Clover's favorite thing to do is run with Diesel outside and we have to bribe her with cookies to come back inside!
I even think our cat likes her. I caught her licking Clover's ears! "
We have moved Clover to a foster home. Here is their first report:
“Clover did great on the ride home. She definitely is used to car rides. She has a happy temperament and is a bundle of energy! She loves our 3 year old boxer Diesel and enjoys running around in the backyard with him. Clover is also great with our 3lb chihuahua. She knows the limit of what she can do with him and our cat. She has growled at the cat a few times, but at this point, I think Clover is just very curious.
Clover walks excellent on a leash and is very calm when she meets another dog on a walk. She would benefit to have someone that has the time, energy, and patience to work on some basic manners as she is very much still a puppy. We have started clicker training and she is responding fabulously!
She sleeps on her bed in our bedroom, and Diesel joined her - it is really cute! She had two accidents her first night, but not a single one since. Clover doesn't like to be left alone, but she is probably just stressed from all the changes in her life.
When Ryan came home from work the first night, Clover started growling and barking. Once Ryan got in the house she realized it was him and she was fine. I've only heard her bark that one time, and once outside at the dog that lives behind us (I think Diesel started that though!).
Clover will definitely need a house with a fenced yard, as she is full of non-stop boxer energy. As far as her eating goes she is a neat eater, but loves to slobber when she drinks.
Things are going great with Clover and she is adjusting very well. She has a very happy temperament. Clover has yet to exhibit aggression toward male strangers, but we will start introducing her to some more new people in a few days. All in all, Clover seems to be a typical boxer and will make a great addition to a boxer-loving home!”
