Hi all,

My uncle owns an animal hospital and about a month ago, the local police brought in a stray Boxer.

Congrats on adding Frankie to your family and thank you for giving him a loving home! How is he doing, have you noticed him putting on any more weight? My one concern might be that he's continuing to have problems with worms, so if he's still having trouble putting on weight then I would probably have him checked for worms again, but if the vet feels he's just a lanky puppy who needs to grow into his build and he is otherwise healthy...lots of energy, a big appetite, etc...then I wouldn't worry too much.
