“Look for the helpers,” said Mr. Rogers, the TV star, whose mother told him to do that when something scared him. I’ve known scary times, too—when I was kept in a backyard kennel without food or water—until a helper came for me. While with her, I was good with kids and other dogs, but not with cats; very energetic, loving, obedient, and a fast learner. And then I came here, still needing to gain weight (this is a five-star place for nutritious dog meals), and just naturally friendly and eager to please. Life isn’t scary anymore. For me, it’s full of promise for happy, fun times. I’m a 3-year-old Boxer mix male, who wants most of all to give you the love of a good dog. Will you help me do that?
