8/31/00 - tuffy was found by a family just
wandering around in a suburban long island neighborhood. neighbors
said they saw him hanging around for about 2 weeks. a wonderful
family took him in, gave him a bath, and some good meals. they can
not believe how wonderful he is....they want to keep him, but unfortunately
are unable to do so right now. he has a
wonderful disposition, calm, friendly and loving.
we estimate his age to be around 2 years old or younger. he has a very unusual coat- long hair for a boxer and the color looks like a dirty blond with highlights! we don't know if he is just unusual looking or if he is mixed with another breed. he has the boxer wiggle, and all other characteristics of a boxer, but his fur has baffled us.
as you can tell from his description, tuffy is everything but "tuf". he is actually a very gentle soul. (but, no cats please!) tuffy would do best in a home with older children or adults.

tuffy a great new home, please complete an online
