Hello Boxer Lovers, Alumni, Fosters, Adopters and general dog people alike. Just a friendly notice that all animals, expecially boxers with squishy faces, are sensitive to extreme heat. Please make sure you are taking extra precautions on the time of day, amount of time and access your furry friends are outside as well as access to shade, plenty of cool water and maybe extra pupsicles. Also be cautious taking them for long walks on asphalt surfaces as they get very hot and will damage your pups paws... ("I'm Melting"). Just think of them as you would yourself (minus tanning by the pool)... Would I get too overheated? Am I thirsty? Would this burn my bare feet? Do I want diet approved popsicles?
Happy Summer from your friends at MTBR!!
