Matilda and Rosy

Today is all about 
and Those Who Came Before

The story begins in 2008 and the search for a dog that would get along well with cats!  
Deciding on a boxer led to the Legacy Boxer Rescue and Casey was adopted!  
It was a full 5-months of foster care before he came into the Legacy Chronicles home.  
He’d been the dog of a hoarder, sick with mange, nearly without fur 
and always banned to the outdoors without grass or shade in the heat of Texas!  
But Casey became the most amazing dog and a pawfect amabassadog for the boxer breed.
It was soon after, that time was spent volunteering at LBR and fosters arrived here,
 to share home and hearth with Casey.  
Cinderella and Jessie!  
Cinderella, originally kept as a breeder and abandoned when she became too old.  
Jessie just a little pup stray left by the side of the road.  
Cinderella was part of this little boxer family until the age of 14 in 2015.  
Sadly, both little Jessie and dear Casey died too soon … 
at ages 3 and 10 in 2018 just a month apart from one another.

And now there is Matilda ~ beautiful, gentle ~ a loving soul.  
And her story is a kinder one, coming to the Legacy Boxer Rescue
 at a mere 5-months by a young woman who just was 
not ready to handle an active, young boxer!  
And from there … coming to her home at The Legacy Chronicles.  
Matilda is one of the lucky ones, the blessed ones ~ 
she has not known what it is to be lost, abandoned, or abused ~ 
and she never will thanks to LBR.

and the wonderful work done by Matilda's rescue group ... 


  1. we love the stories about love and new furmilies and all about the boxers... specially about those in need... thanks to Andrea and her friends for all their help ...

  2. It's amazing and sad how so many humans choose a pet because they are cute, or the look they want in a pet and then can't handle it. People need to research breeds before bringing any pet into their home.

  3. That is quite the story and we're happy to meet sweet Matilda.

  4. I visited Matilda over at LLB before I came here. my Smile Amazon is now donating to the Boxer rescue
