We have been blessed to have two Boylan doxie’s. Our first was Comet who was one of Asia’s puppies. After Comet was born, Bob and Lori decided to retire Asia. As soon as we found out, we knew we had to have her. It took a few months to complete the process. She had to be “fixed” before they could ship her and it was critical to both Bob and I that she heals completely before we put her on a plane. It was best for her to heal where she was most comfortable.
The most important thing to remember is to be patient and supportive once you bring home a retired sire or dam. It will take a little while for them to acclimate to their new home, environment, and family. All dogs and puppies move at their own rate. When we first got Asia she was having accidents in our house. We were stumped because it was only happening overnight even though she had full access to the fenced in back yard. The signs were all there and we weren’t listening to what she was telling us. She didn’t like going out by herself at night and would hold it because she was scared. You could tell every morning she hated to disappoint. We back up to woods and that was very different then the Boylan’s. Before we would go to bed at night, we would have all of the dogs go out together. It completely solved the problem and there are no more accidents. With lots of patience and love, Asia has made a complete transition. She did exceptionally well considering she was the last to join a pack of 4 (3 smooth coats and 1 long haired), making 5 once she arrived.
We could not imagine not having her as a part of our family! All of this is a direct result of Bob and Lori’s expertise in placing the right dog within the right home. We will never get a doxie anywhere but from the Boylan’s. Their dogs have great personalities, are beautiful, gentle, healthy, and loving dogs. In our minds, they breed the perfect doxies!!
