Kindee

Kindee's former foster mom asked if I would like to write a Success Story for Kindee. I couldn't pass up the opportunity. From what I've learned, she was a special part of LSBR. After personally watching LSBR from the sidelines for a few years now, we decided we were in the market for a second Boxer. We came across Kindee's picture and description, and decided that she very much sounded like the dog for our family and vice versa. Three and a half weeks ago, we had our Home Visit and were approved as a LSBR Adopter family. Two weekends ago, Kindee came to meet us to see if we fit her needs. Quite instantaneously, it was known that a match that fit both ways was found. Our week and a half together since has gone even better than I could have hoped. Kindee has blended seamlessly into our big, busy family. She has openly accepted it all without so much as a hiccup. Her manners, temperament and tolerance leave absolutely nothing to be corrected. Food and treats make me a bit cautious with kids around the dogs' level, but Kindee proved completely obedient. She has waited patiently as our toddler, jabbering and slow, helps me fill the bowls, and she has accepted treats with utmost care and gentleness from the kids' fingers. It's also been so joyful to watch Kindee with our 10 year old Boxer, for whom I really wanted a BFF. We've watched Cooper and Kindee run full speed together in the field. It was so exciting to see her comfortable and excited enough to RUN for the first time. She's beautiful stretched out at full-stride. The two of them roll in the grass, lounge in the sun, and stroll through the wooded areas sniffing this and that. Kindee licks Cooper's muzzle in happiness, snoozes with him when they're tuckered out, rides in the backseat together, and goes out for the bedtime potty in the moonlight. Cooper is certainly enjoying her company. When I originally filled out the adoption application, the kids (thinking we would be getting a puppy) were worried that I was getting some "sleepy, old, boring dog," because I wrote that I was looking for more low-keyed, floor lounging, 'flashy" art that I could step over in the kitchen while getting dinner ready. Kindee fits that bill (as she loves to get her snooze and snore on), but she is sooo much more than that. She has matched us step for step in being a part of our family in all that we've done this week, and is HARDLY some old, boring dog!! Happily, the fit is mutual for Kindee, too. I am home all day with her, Cooper and our toddler. Everyone goes out and in to their hearts' content, flops around the house, doing just about anything they want...which is mostly just following Mom around. Can't let me get too far out of sight - true to the Boxer (and toddler) breed!! Paula, Matt, and the LSBR organization have done such a wonderful thing rescuing Kindee, caring for her all this time, waiting on the perfect match-up for her. And, we couldn't be happier to be her match-up! That's Kindee's Success Story! (10/11) ~The Gossett Family
