Message for “Name a Dog” donation:
Hoogie was the nickname given to my father in law growing up. This year, as Christmas gifts, my parents and my husband’s parents will get a “dog” through your give a dog a name donation program.

Hoogie has been making a lot of progress in his foster home. He attached very quickly to his foster mom and he is slowly warming up to his foster dad. What Hoogie loves best is playing with toys and his food. He also loves his new fur-sister, a female English Bulldog. Hoogie has been exploring new things in his foster home and working on his socialization with others outside of the home.

Hoogie and his three littermates were surrendered to a shelter when their owners moved across the country and their new rental did not allow dogs. All four boxers were very fearful in the shelter, so a plea was placed for rescue help. They were feeding off each other’s fear and have been making much better progress after being separated. They are very food motivated and each will need a patient home to socialize them and to help them build their confidence. It would be beneficial for them to be placed with a confident dog of the opposite sex and a securely fenced yard. Hoogie is 7 months old and will be arriving at his new foster home in Pennsylvania tomorrow. We will update his page once he settles in and his foster family gets to know him better.
