10/05/15 - Forever Foster
be remaining with our behaviorist. He is now 8 yrs old and has failing
vision. It has taken him years to feel comfortable and we do not feel
it would be fair to move him at this point. If you are interested in
sponsoring Cojax, please consider making a donation towards his care!
It has been 4.5 years since
Cojax joined AABR. His past has been a difficult thing to overcome. Cojax is
still looking for that special home that can work with him and gain his
trust. He is currently fostered with a trainer and does well with the other
dogs in her home. He is housebroken, knows his commands, and just wants to
find a forever family of his own. Cojax needs a home without children
and would do best in a quiet environment. If you can provide that special
home for Cojax, apply today!
Cojax is still waiting for his
forever home. He comes with expert training and advice. Cojax is currently
fostered with our behaviorist in Connecticut and he is doing very well.
Please consider this guy who was so badly neglected and deserves a second
After spending the first few
years of his life living outside on a chain that left permanent scars around
his neck, you won't see many photos of Cojax running around outside in the
winter. He prefers to semi hibernate on the dogs' sofa - just going out for
a quick stretch of the legs and bathroom duties; at least until he sees the
first tulips of Spring. Cojax is looking forward to a forever family without
children where his people will be understanding of the miserable life that
he's led and help him with patience to build more trust in people.
Cojax is currently in foster
with AABR's trainer. Cojax is working through his lack of trust with new
people. He had a sheltered life on a chain early on, so will need a home
that is quiet, calm, and patient. Cojax is also looking for a home with a
secure, fenced yard. He really enjoys having the company of another
dog. We will update Cojax's page with his progress.
Cojax has lost his temporary
foster home and is back at the kennel. He is in need of a foster home with
boxer experience and that has the patience to help Cojax acclimate to a home
environment. He is very treat motivated and loves other dogs.
Cojax attended an adoption event last weekend and he did great! Cojax met
many different dogs and several new people. New pictures are posted from
this event. Please open your home to this boy and give him a chance at
getting back in a home environment!
Cojax is in a temporary foster
home and is doing well, considering he has never been in a home his whole
life. He is good with the other male boxers in his foster home and is
adjusting to sharing attention with them. You can only imagine how much he
wants and needs attention after finally getting a chance at a good life
inside a home. Cojax is totally housebroken and has not had a single
accident, which is amazing in my opinion.
Cojax needs a foster who will work with him on his crate manners and
teach him other basics. He is doing so well in such a short time of just
eight days. Now at least we know he is ready for a home. Please help him by
offering a foster or forever home. He was so neglected and abused prior to
coming to rescue, but is such a good boy in spite of it all.
Our boy is now finished with
heartworm treatment. It has been a long winter for him. Cojax has
never had a real home and family of his own. He used to be tied up in the
backyard and would break free once in awhile and go to the neighbor's house
to play with their dog. Cojax is ready for a family of his own.

Update - I was very lucky to
spend some time with Cojax this weekend at the kennel. He is much smaller
than previously indicated, weighing maybe 50 lbs at full weight. He's was
kept outdoors frequently, and has a rough patch around his neck area where
the collar would scrape his skin. He is cautious of everything initially and
I don't think he's had much exposure to anything in life. He's like a puppy
in a two year old dog's body! His head is swimming right now but soon he'll
be neutered, vaccinated and ready for a home!
The kennel manager said he's becoming more acclimated every day and is
enjoying time in the yard to run and play off leash. He likes to play
"soccer", chasing a toy that I kicked around. But he wasn't sure if he
should pick it up, or what to do! So Cojax needs a home to teach him how to
play and how to enjoy things in life! His ideal home would be a quiet one
with adults only. Experienced dog owners are necessary since he has had very
little socialization in his life and will need owners with dog knowledge and
patience to help him learn about the world. He's very food motivated though
and could learn anything! He enjoyed getting hot dogs for sitting and
getting his flea preventative.
Cojax is a special boy that deserves a better life than being a "yard
dog" so apply to foster or adopt this cute little man today!
Cojax is an extremely handsome 2 year old male boxer
that was given up by his elderly owner so he could have a better life. He is
stunning example of the breed, muscular, trim and fit. He got along well
with the female pit bull in the home in the very few interactions they had.
He will be vaccinated and neutered shortly. If you could foster Cojax, apply
today! And check back soon for updates!
