Any animal placed by Amy's Acres Rescues is, by contract, to be returned to us if the animal is no longer wanted or needs to be rehomed. This is the same requirement stated on our puppy contracts. Having taken an animal into our lives, we feel it our responsibility to assure them of a good life to the end.

Grunt a/k/a Monty


For some weeks in the summer of 2009, AAKS took in a boxer named Grunt.


An owner relinquish rescue, Grunt came to us severely underweight. He has a broken rib from (we were told) being kicked when a puppy for going to the bathroom in the house. Our veterinarian said it was obvious the broken rib had punctured his lung, and the lung shows signs of having “healed on its own”. The vet said it was luck that the dog survived since he surely had been drowning in his own blood.




Throughout his stay with us, he was treated with penicillin injections to medicate severe diarrhea. After many vet visits, continual daily meds, and five small meals per day, he was on his way to recovering (somewhat) and rehabilitation. At the end of his stay with us, he went to Mid-Michigan Boxer Rescue and the home of a boxer rescue volunteer.


Following is a note from Beth Moody, of Mid-Michigan Boxer Rescue:

He is good. Our vet found an anomaly with his heart. It has a very strange sound so they did chest x rays. The aorta is misshapen and enlarged. He will see a cardiologist before he can be neutered now. He really is stunningly beautiful. We renamed him Monty . . . Thank you for helping him.” ~ Beth Moody


Note: Grunt was part of the long and sad saga of being just another "brown dog". Read about MMBR's efforts to bring justice at the end of another boxer's life of neglect.
