"I found Vera at a local shelter called Wayside Waifs in Kansas City, Missouri. I was volunteering there and watching for a permanent relationship with the perfect dog when I saw her. She was about a year to a year and a half old and was born deaf."

"I contacted some trainers and spoke with my vet before bringing Vera home, wanting to be sure I was able to provide Vera what she needed, since she may have some special needs. Truly I should not have been worried. Vera is a bright dog, full of energy and character, has a sincere and loving heart and happens to not hear a thing."

"As with the Boxer breed, she is loyal and is close by me whenever we are together. She is patient and kind when she is playing with children and loves my nephews. Because her tail is docked short, her whole body wiggles when she sees those she loves!"

"Vera is quick to learn and responds to our consistent lifestyle. Our commands are mostly hand signals that I have used to teach her to sit, stay and lie down. She loves fetching a ball or a toy or bone. Often times I hear her galloping through the house tossing her toy herself for her to catch and grab. And, oh does she run! She can zip through a backyard in nothing flat! She will literally run circles for many laps just to turn on the speed—grinning the whole time!"

"Vera definitely knows the NO command which is me shaking my pointer finger at her. This is used when she is trembling to chase a cat or squirrel or when she wants to be involved in an activity she is not included in, such as this racetrack photo."

"Since I have adopted Vera, I have become an avid fan of the Boxer breed. There are so many great breeds of dogs out there, but Vera the white Boxer has taught me unconditional love, complete trust in an animal and that best friends sometimes have 4 feet and a wet nose."
