Both the boxie and the red footed were captive bred. The boxie was spunkier than the red footed and climbed over her. That was how she escaped their pen outside.

In fact, I'd never have a boxie again or recommend it as a pet after that experience. It is an art to bring them back from hybernation and mine needed mega shots of calcium and vitamin B to stop her anorexia. I nursed her as she recovered from a renal condition that caused shellrot, shortly after I bought her from teh breeder. She recovered completely. I don't think she survived in the wild though, and that is what saddens me the most.

The red footed has the personality of a puppy. The boxie was more aloof and shy. Didn't like to interact too much with people. The red footed is a conceited flirt.
