I registered so that I could comment on this thread. "Cheerios", who we named Boone, was the dog love of our lives. He lived to be almost 12. He was a joy and rescued all of us. To those who commented about his breed you were 100% correct. We did two DNA tests just to see the results. Boone (these would be accurate for his brother, Krispies, as well) was Boxer, GSD, Rottweiler and Doberman. Such a beautiful mix on the outside and such a heart of gold on the inside. He is forever loved and missed.
