BOONe
Cane Corso

This is BooneDox.

We were lucky enough to welcome him into our home in May 2020. My husband and I had been rescuing Boxers for many years, my husband is an amazing dog guy. He understands them. We had lost our boxer who was the only one who had ever picked me to be his person. To say that loss was difficult is putting it mildly. I was devastated. When I was ready to get another dog, I wanted to look at other breeds and I have always loved Corsos. I was guided to Teresa. Teresa is best to tell of Boone’s issues, but Teresa was not real keen on adopting him out to a household with another male dog and we still had a boxer.

 

Teresa and I spoke multiple times about how my husband and I addressed the challenges of bringing new rescue animals into our home and how we worked to give the animals time to adjust and learn to coexist. Through those talks and Teresa gained confidence in us, that we would do things the right way to help Boone and Bentley (boxer) be successful together. We had to give her our word that we would follow her guidance in acclimating these dogs. We were all in! Teresa’s way or the highway! We had complete trust that Teresa would give all of us the best chance of success. It took a few weeks but with Teresa’s excellent plan, time and proper SLOOOW intro, the boys became brothers! My husband and I continued to practice the techniques that Teresa taught us to introduce him to new dogs, we still do, and Boone has become quite a wonderful dog that does well with other dogs. He is not perfect, he is reactive behind a fence, but this is something we can/do work through/with. Boone is a very large dog, he loves people and does very well around our many grandchildren. He is actively protective of our 35 acres when it comes to animal intruders (there are bear, boar and coyotes in our area) but always happy to meet folks who come by. He is friendly and well mannered unless Mom, Dad or Bentley are feeling threatened. Then he becomes our protector. He still responds to our commands, even in those moments, but remains on guard until everyone is relaxed. To me, that is a perfect dog.

 

Recently we adopted a 4 week old boxer puppy, Butcher. I was concerned. We followed the techniques that Teresa taught us, and things could not have gone better. Boone loves this baby, he tries to teach him things and is extremely gentle and patient even when the puppy gets a little over rambunctious in his ‘play’, biting Boone’s face. I am so impressed with Boone, I am in awe of his transformation, his intelligence and his desire to do all the right things for his pack……It couldn’t have been this way without Teresa. Teresa is an incredible trainer. Not just of the dogs, but also of the PEOPLE who will ultimately be responsible to keep her dogs on the right path. I will forever be grateful that we crossed paths. Her gifts/skills with these dogs are exceptional and the dogs are blessed to have her, as anyone would be who is lucky enough to bring one of her dogs home. Do I recommend IMM & Pistol’s Rescue Ranch! Without a doubt! Without reservation! I have worked with many rescues and I am a big fan of all of them! But, I can say that Teresa invests the most of any I have worked with. Not just financially, she invests her time and every resource available to her to help these dogs become good citizens and give them the very best opportunity to live the lives we all know that dogs deserve to live. Thank you, Teresa, for the opportunity to give BooneDox the life he deserves. He wouldn’t have made it, if not for you.
