If anyone else is friend w/Adopt a Boxer Rescue on Facebook, you may have already seen this:

There are two female boxers at the SPCA in Delaware that need our help. Both are 6 yr old females that have lumps on legs, and they will not adopt them out because of it. Both good with other dogs and kids. They are on euthanasia list and can only get out via rescue. If you are an approved home and can foster either one, please let us know ASAP.

That is so sad! Won't adopt them out b/c of the lumps on their legs? So the SPCA would rather hold them, and wait for their time to come out?!! UGH! That is just so sad! :( I sure hope someone can help those poor gals.

#1. 6 yr old, fawn female. Owner abandoned her in house. Great with kids and other dogs. Has small mct/skin tags that we will have removed, but doesn't look serious.
#2. Diamond, 5-6 yr old, brindle female. Was adopted out by sh...elter, then family returned 2 weeks later after they discovered mct. Great with kids and other dogs. Shelter favorite, but can't adopt her out bc of mct. Help us make her comfy in a home--we won't give up on her!


I'm trying to find out if they have been pulled yet...sounds like the shelter is holding them until the rescue has foster homes ready for them. 

I'm still trying to find out if it's the SPCA that my cousin works at....maybe he could help them until they can get them out.
