Are you kidding me? Your boxie had more personality? Wow! I'm impressed.

My red footed taps on her tank so I take her out to scratch her head. When it is time to come in for the night, I don't have to reach out for her in the pen. I just call her. She knows her name. She lifts her head, spots me and starts walking towards me. By the time she reaches me, I have already picked up the dragon and am ready to bring them both in. Not even the bearded dragon has a personality like the red footed tortie! I put her on the floor in the living room and she chases me. Then she "cuddles up" next to my skin. She really is a puppy in a shell. I thought all red footed were like that

I definitely do not recommend boxies or hybernating turtles to people who are considering them as pets. It costed me a fortune to keep her alive and get her to gain weight after hybernation. Thank you for your comfort but being it a fact that she was captive bred and then lost in my yard, I can only hope she has made it. I keep telling the dog to make herself useful and sniff her out. But two winters have passed and Tulip never came back. I live in an urban community. And like you say, I can only hope she made it....
