Hello! Luna here. I like to think they call me that because I'm pretty out of this world! Here on Earth though, I'm having some problems with my legs. I know you all can manage on two. But for me? I prefer all four. That makes it the easiest for me to play with my foster brother. You see, my two hind legs are in a bit of pain. And the doctor says I have to have double ACL surgery (I don't like the sound of that). And what's worse? It's going to cost the good people that saved me $4,000! Would you consider helping me get my surgery? I'd really love to be up and at it again, and then I know I can be the best girl a family could have! 
Boxer kisses,

A big thanks to our favorite pilot!
If you haven't heard, Albert Adams, volunteer pilot with Pilots N Paws and his wife, Sharma, do SO much for Florida Boxer Rescue. They give our VIBs (Very Important Boxers) flights to their foster and forever homes when transportation seems otherwise impossible. 
Albert has been flying for 23 years, and flew more than 10,000 miles last year alone!  He flies for multiple rescues throughout the Southeast, and even for wounded warriors needing service dogs. He's always been committed to serving in his community, and we couldn't be more thankful!
Albert has been sponsored by a few corporations who have challenged him to raise $10,000 by March 4, 2014 (that's this upcoming Tuesday!) If he can do it, they will TRIPLE the funds raised!  
You can donate to him here, and mention FBR in the notes section of your donation!
We couldn't do it without you Albert and Sharma!
Thank you!
