My rescued boxer Mario is also widely known as the Puppy of Mass Destruction. No toy, shoe, package, loaf of bread, bag, bit of laundry or plant within his range is safe. What’s an owner to do other than laugh, snap some photos and share? This is one of his better efforts. He was eight months old at the time. This was a large pot full of pretty succulents before he tore it to pieces and spread the dirt all over my kitchen floor. Note how proudly he claims his mess.

    Did you happen to leave him alone for 2 minutes?

    Although it’s funnier to look at than to clean up, that was a wonderful thing you have done by adopting your boy. I too am a rescuer and foster mom. Between kids and animals, what else is there to do but laugh? Crying certainly doesn’t help. When you cry, they just look at you like you were the one that did something wrong. LOL! Great share. Hugs & Love, Linda :)

    I just noticed the “kong” in the middle of the floor, was this because he became bored with the flowers or was the destruction because he became bored with the toy? Either way i was having a seriously bad day and was even in tears and then i saw this and i was laughing…thank you..

    Why is it that I see a lot of Boxers on this site? I have a Boxer mix and should have been taking photos for the last 6 yrs.

    Thank goodness you don’t have carpet.

    I wonder how he managed to spread it so far and wide. I am picturing him realizing it made the floor slippery. He skated and slid around like floor, like a giant slip-and-slide, with his legs akimbo.

    Oh my gosh, the look on his face in the first one is priceless

    This must be a boxer thing. I have a boxer who has ate just about all of my plants.. I have gone to putting chicken wire around all my plants to have somewhat of a nice yard. He has ate my dads 4wheeler seat, ate two grill hoses, a dewalt saw cord, power cord to the radio, the buckle to his harness, tears off the eastspouts to the house, gets into the garbage, cat litter…i’m sure i could go on and hes only 16months.

    That?  Is awesome!  How could you get mad at that sweet face? :)

    I currently have 8 dogs and 6 cats.. all but 3 are rescues.  We find strays and if we can’t find their owners, they end up staying with us.  We soon find out why they are probably strays to begin with.  So we keep them because I’m too afraid someone with less patience with hurt them.  They have done enough damage to my stuff I could fill an entire site just with their hijinks.

    Yay for tile floors!  We rescued our two boxers from NorCal Boxer Rescue.
