Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Juno & Rocket (Bonded Pair) 6.5 Years Old Female (Juno) 8.5 Years Old Male (Rocket) Good with dogs of all sizes Good with cats Fostered in Bend, OR We were adopted in the middle of winter, last November (2016). We love our family and they love us. During the winter we didn't get much interaction with the chickens. However, as the winter faded into spring, we began to realize that chicken would likely be tasty. We discovered it was very good. Sadly, this just won't work. We need a chicken free zone. We're lovable snuggle bugs who provide lots of luv, we're twice the luv than one dog. We are mature, so no puppy issues to deal with like--chewing, house training or crate training, and when you aren't around we have each other. Below we've provide their pervious Bio. Previous Bio: What does a bonded pair mean? It means we are stuck at the hip, dynamic duo, double cuddles, and of course we will be adopted out as a pair. It also means we are each other’s playmate, blanket, treat stealer, and wing man. When I think of 8.5 yo Rocket I think of Mr.Snuffleupagus from Sesame street. Sweet, goofy guy who doesn’t want to get in anyone’s way and wants to get along. House trained, walks well on a leash, and crate trained. He normally sleeps in his designated area outside a crate. His sister 6.5 yo Miss Juno is a little more cautious than him-- just think a less boisterous Miss Piggy, but with all her sassiness that is understated. She is amazingly sweet, good at fitting in, blending, and making you wonder when she wasn’t in your life. She is also house trained, walks well on a leash, and crate trained. A space/room of her own would make her feel more secure in a new area. Adopting these two will guarantee immediate happiness, joyful, laughs, snorting, and lots of family fun time. These two are so easy going and can be around all shapes and sizes of humans and animals. They love to run, play, and sleep. They would both be an amazing addition/completion to someone’s family, including little humans and other fur family of all sizes. Think of them as a KitKat--why just eat one bar when you have can two? If you feel like you could offer them the home they deserve we would love to consider you for their forever family.

More About Boxer Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Kojak 3 year old fawn male 80 lbs. Crate Trained Potty Trained Fostered in Spokane, WA Who loves ya, baby? That would be Theo Kojak, the bald, lollipop-sucking New York detective who isn't afraid to bend the rules to bust the bad guys. Wait a second! That’s not me! I am not the 1970s New York detective from an American drama series. No. No. No. I’m the tall, fawn, and handsome, bully stick eating, bouncing everywhere boy name Kojak! Just Kojak. I am one tall glass of water coming in at about eighty solid pounds. In my head, I am about 30 lbs, which is why most of the time I do not know where my body is in space. I think it best not to be around small children. You should see me spin and spin when it is meal time. I get to moving and have no idea where I am going to land. Every day I get dressed up for “work” by putting on my freedom harness and backpack. I do like dressing up. I like it a lot! My backpack makes me feel important. When I go out, I carry rice, my person’s phone, water, and poo bags. I will even carry my own poo home so you don’t have to. I figure it is only fair. The backpack helps calm me when I see other dogs. I can get a bit excited and hyper focused. The more I go on walks and practice my good behavior, the better I have become. I have racked up many miles on the “Walk For A Dog” app earning money for my rescue. Practice makes perfect right and I might as well do a good deed while I am at it. I get compliments all the time. I am so handsome. I don’t want others feeling poorly about themselves because I am disgustingly beautiful. While I am at it, please do not bring home a feline. They are just too delicious . . . er, I mean, independent, for my liking. Let it just be you and me. I will gladly crush, I mean, cuddle you on the couch, nudge you while I am bouncing, drool on your floor at meal time, and play with your feet while you are walking. I will fulfill all your needs. No point in spending money on toys because I just do not see the point. However, I will gladly let you mortgage the house for bully sticks. I very much enjoy the softer things in life. I love soft beds that I can stretch out on and a blanket for snuggling. Wherever my blanket is, that is where I will be napping. I am a quiet fellow because I let my looks do the talking so I don’t have to. I also like to communicate through pee-mail. I send messages to all my neighborhood friends while out on walks on this bush and that bush. Reading pee-mail is fun too! Perhaps we could send mail to one another or better yet, move in together. Please send your mail to Wigglin’ Home Boxer Rescue. Remember, it’s not Theo Kojak, just Kojak. Theo already has a family!

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Roscoe Boxer Single 4 year old Male 46 lbs Cat curious Kid friendly Fawn with Flashy paws Fostered in Poulsbo, WA Why hello there, I'm Roscoe. If it's not obvious by now, I am very happy to meet you. Please forgive me for being so exuberant, but sometimes I just can't stop wiggling. As soon as you look into my beautiful brown eyes, it makes me so bendy, and my nub just can't control itself. This online marriage application is kinda weird to me, and I assume the same for you. So I will be 100% honest, I've been married before to another family. Life happened to me, and it wasn't anywhere or anything that I expected it to be. It was a scary and dark time in my life that involved the law, judges, and court system. What exactly happened was not my fault. I shouldn't go into details. The best that I can offer is my love, loyalty, and devotion. My physique is rather svelte and could maybe use a few pounds of muscle. I don't think I would like the gym, too much noise and clanking going on there. Just take me for a walk occasionally, and maybe arrange a play date with a fellow Boxer. I definitely should brag about my walking ability. I set the standard that most strive for--slack leash, non-reactive, you set the pace. My coat is smooth and laid back, just like my personality. Car rides aren't really my cup of dog food, but if you hold my hand, or reassure me, I can settle down for a nap. My house manner are some of the best around. Being a boy, you might be concerned about marking, however I can assure you that's not my thing unless it's a bush or fence post; sorry, boys will be boys. Kennel time is cool with me, as well as just hanging out in the house. If you would like for me to take my naps or sleep in there, just make sure I have a blanket. I may cry for a minute just to remind you that I love you. I'm a Boxer, I do like to snuggle. At your feet, on the couch, or hopefully I can come and give you some attention before bedtime on your bed. Barking isn't needed; that would keep people away, and I love people. I do have a beautiful voice though, and will sing and dance with you once we get to know each other. As you can tell by now, I'm a easy going guy. And I should let foster dad talk about me. Roscoe is a very appreciative and easy going dog. With that being said "I endorse this message" and I will add my two cents. He is looking for a gentle human leader, as well as canine leader. He isn't very good at playing leader of the pack. In that situation he has shown signs of resource guarding, but as a follower he does very well. Roscoe has good recall, but could use some basic training with commands. We affectionately call him Five-Toe Roscoe, due to having a extra toe on his right rear leg. Kinda unique. Roscoe's desire to meet you in person is genuine, and he is sure to impress you. Please consider adding him to your life by filling out the adoption form below.

Think close companion, calm, and your best girlfriend. Think cuddles, kisses, and all the love you can imagine. Think of all those things and you will see my face. My name is Paisley. I am just one of those kinds of dogs who no matter what the situation, I make the most of it. I look to the future with just you and me and all the memories we will create. I don’t know many fancy skills, but that means you get to teach me all you want me to know. I am potty trained and crate trained if you are more comfortable I stay there while you are gone. I won’t make a fuss. I just said I don’t have many fancy skills, but I DO have the most important one! I am an absolute joy to walk on a leash. Going for strolls is one of my favorite things. Nothing gets me wigglin’ like a leash about to go on! EEEK! There are so many things for me to see in the neighborhood. Sometimes, I will just stop and stare because it is so new to me I just have to soak it up. How I love discovering the world. I didn’t see many new things while being stuck in my backyard. I enjoy the company of other dogs. I am playful at times, but other times I simply investigate my surroundings. I don’t pay much attention to toys and I am not a big eater. Save your money and pay me in cuddles. My love bucket is quite empty and I need lots of love to fill it back up to the tippy top. Might you have some love to spare? A soft bed perhaps? A couch for cuddles? If so, order yourself an Uber and get straight on over to Spokane! I will be the cute one waiting for you.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Roxy 3 Years Old Female/Spay Loves car rides Kid friendly (bigger kids best) Dog selective Crate trained Working on basic obedience Flashy Brindle Fostered in Bend, OR Roxy here! I'm a delightful, flashy three year old brindle Boxer, who loves to be near her peeps, very near indeed. I need to shower you with loves and kisses. Yesterday, my mom said something about learning to control my licker, whatever. I am so happy I made it into rescue; luckily, my first owners knew they weren’t giving me what I needed. Now, that I’m no longer outside on a chain all day long, I’ve got people, a couch, a crate, a bed, and toys. A girl really does need more than just a bowl of water and regular food. My teeth sometimes get caught on my lip. According to some, it because I have an adorable underbite. My foster mom says that when I give her the look and stick out my teeth, I'm impossible to say no to. It thrills me to no end to be around my people at all times; it makes me wiggle when they take me on car rides, walks, or even just cuddle on the couch with me. Being at the end of a chain in the back yard, watching my family come and go or watch TV without me, was pretty heartbreaking. My foster mom tells me that I don’t need to worry so much and I’ll get enough attention too. I am crate trained which helps a great deal when I worry too much. I know my manners and listen for the most part. Sometimes I’ll pretend to ignore a hint when someone doesn't want me to give them lots of kisses. I need some more help in learning how to listen and redirect my attention better when I’m off leash. Speaking of leashes, with each walk I am getting better at not pulling on my leash. I get along great with kids, especially when I can pin them to the couch for kisses and face washes. Mom thinks really little kids may not be the best for me just yet. I haven't been tested around many small animals but I’ve been known to get very excited by something little moving around outside the windows. Some dogs are okay, but others can be too much like me--a type A personality--and we don’t seem to hit it off right away. Once you meet me you’ll, see and we’ll be together for, forever.

Scrappy 5 Years Old Kid loving Big dog friendly High prey drive so no cats, chickens or pocket pets Boxer/Bulldog Mix Fostered in Hood River, OR Scrappy loves all people and he gives the best full face kisses. This guy basks in being a champion 80 lb lap dog. On our farm he is a tremendous help—from his photos you can see he is great in the work truck, knows how to inspect the honey bucket as well as framed in walls, he even assists with bed making. Sadly, the big guy was not cared for prior to rescue and has some physical scars he will carry for the rest of his life. We can say that his emotional traumas have not left him scarred, he is the most loving, canine soul around. His hair is growing back from the surgery to remove the masses but the pressure points from laying on concrete in filth are not likely to regrow hair. From the severe confinement, he was weak in the backend, but he has been regaining that lost muscle mass quickly. As such, he now really enjoys a romp with the other dogs and is getting around easily. Being Boxer/Old English Bulldog Mix everyone needs to acknowledge that all that love he gives just oozes out of his jowls. Old English should come with a bib—he is not sloppy until eating, just generous and shares his stuff all over the place.

If you want to imagine what life will be like with me, look down. Picture my face right there at your feet. My name is Petey and I will never be far away. Your days of going potty by yourself are over. Going to the fridge? I think it is better if we go as a pair. Going for a walk? Going together is a far better idea and I will gladly walk next to you. You won’t even know I am there! I can entertain myself, but doing things together is much more fun! My energy level is moderate. I am a bit of a nervous fella. Walks help me relax so I can be as patient in my crate as you need me to be. You will be happy to know I come with some pretty awesome basic obedience skills. I am treat motivated so training me is a breeze. I desperately want to please you. Teach me the rules and I will follow them. Learning new things make me happy and help build my confidence. The sky is the limit with me! I have been around cats and have done well. I am dog selective. What does this mean? It means I can’t play or live with just any dog. You can never skimp when trying to find the right roommate. It takes me longer to warm up to new dogs, but once I do, I am a friend for life. I require slow introductions and prefer friends who are gentle in nature. The dog friends I like the most never stare me down or try to dominate me. Those types make my nerves rattle. Since I am so picky about new friends, dog parks are not for me but, on leash walks are right up my alley and I enjoy them immensely! My favorite toys include stuffies of all kinds. Soft toys are so much fun to shake and shake, throw and shake. I am good at fetch for about one throw. I am down for tug-o-war if you think you can handle this mean, lean tugging machine. I play a good game of tug, but I will let you win from time to time just to keep things on the level. Although I like to play, I like the lighter side of life too. Cuddling and kisses are equally enjoyable. In my three short years I have had a rough go of things. I have so much to offer someone who will protect, love and comfort me. I need a little bit of care and guidance and I will give you my whole heart for all the rest of my days. To see me in action, watch my video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoDdCCcv7zY&t=70s. You won’t be able to resist me after this, I guarantee it!

Iggy 3 Years Old Male/Neutered Fawn Good with kids Natural Tail & Ears Fostered in Helena, MT Iggy is such a handsome young guy who readily seeks your attention and praise. This guy is adjusting and transitioning very well from shelter life to household. He gets along well with our pups and has proven wonderful with my little girl. Mr Iggy is very eager to please his people and very motivated to learn what is right, as it means he gets the attention and treats he craves. Of course, being young and likely on the streets prior to landing in the shelter, we weren’t surprised when he counter-surfed. But, he has thrilled us by easily correcting that behavior. Similar to his lead work, he wants to please you, so he is working very hard on not pulling or marking every bush and pole. To help him be the best he can be, you’ll want to continue this work. We have noticed that Iggy is WAY too intent on our chickens. We’ve been practicing "leave it" but we don’t trust him off lead near them. Iggy would love a large fenced yard to play in. He is great with his basic commands. In our home he has his own room that he sleeps in or stays when we are away. He hasn’t had to stay alone often because someone is usually home or he goes to my office where there is a doggy day care twice a week, which he really enjoys and does well in. Iggy is going to make his furever family a wonderful pet. He has a few rough edges, and yet is so eager to learn and do what is right. He will acclimate to his new household quickly. We have suspected that he may have a grain allergy because of frequent scratching. It could also be residual flea dermatitis coming out of a CA shelter. Regardless, we’ve had him on Costco’s Nature Domain, which is their grain free food, and he is doing better and better. We’re certain Iggy is gonna get matched with a furever family so hopefully you get your application in quickly.
