Happy Ending and Memorial
is with sadness and great joy that we advise of the passing of beautiful
The sadness is obvious... the joy needs some explanation. The
joy comes from knowing that Adopt A Boxer Rescue found a wonderful forever
home for a dog that somehow, years ago, had ended up in a shelter.
Amazingly, despite all our efforts and meticulous review of applicants, we
are never really sure that the home we have selected will turn out to be our
dog's forever home. Tonight I raise my glass of wine and toast to
Shannon, and to her family, and to all the great volunteers who helped
select this family. Remember this
moment and this feeling.

We adopted this beautiful girl in 2005 named Shannon. We are so sad to
say she passed away peacefully In our arms yesterday. We were lucky
enough to have her love for 11 years and we were able to care for her
with diabetes successfully for that long as well. We feel blessed that
she was in our lives and want to thank you for making the connection.
Stacey and Bryan Rossano
is a 1 yr old brindle female boxer that is great with other dogs and loves
everyone. She is spayed, up to date on shots and in good health. She came
from a shelter in MD. Another rescue asked us to take her as they were
full. Shannon is as sweet as she is cute.
