Cory Needs A Special Forever Home

Do you remember Cory's story from last year? Cory came to West Coast Boxer Rescue on July 7, 2015, almost dead, unable to walk or eat on his own. Emaciated with mange, foxtails in his body, open wounds, skin infection, bone infection, systemic infection of his lung, liver and infection in his heart (endocarditis). And now after 9 months of treatment he is recovered and ready to go to his forever home.
What is remarkable about Cory is his body's ability to heal, but also you would NEVER guess from his personality he went through a severe neglect in his life. He loves and trusts humans, very affectionate and attentive. He loves to cuddle on the sofa or in bed with people and dogs. He loves to play with other dogs too. There isn't a mean bone in his body. Cory knows to sit and ask nicely for his meals, and is also potty trained. He can walk nicely on the leash once he calms down. Cory knows his name and will come when he is called. Cory is very energetic and will definitely benefit from basic obedience training. We estimate Cory to be about 1 1/2 years old. He weighs about 62 lbs.
There are couple of things about Cory you should know. He has a little bit of separation anxiety/barrier frustration and does not do well in a crate for a long period of time (he gets crated up to 5 hours 2 times a week in his foster home). He will also need to take 2 types of heart medications for the rest of his life. It is recommended his heart gets checked out by a cardiologist once a year.
Here is a video of Cory you can view to see what he looks like when he came to our rescue and his journey partway to his recovery:
Won't you open up your heart and your home to this very special boy and give him the love and the care he deserve for the rest of his life? He is an amazing, sweet boy.
