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.

Sadie 8 Years Old Female Sable & Tan No Cats Dog Friendly Kid Friendly Perfect on a Lead Good with Grooming Fostered in Spokane, WA Hi my name is Sadie and I'm eight years old. I'm a smallish 44 lbs, which my foster mom says is a perfect size! I live with two foster brother dogs and two cats. I will chase the cat who runs, and I’m always up for a short game of tag. I'm also lucky to have a human brother and sister too! At night, I get to sleep in my human brother, JJ. He lets me in his bed and I don't move until he wakes up in the morning. I am crate trained and mom leaves me out often, because I'm such a good girl while she's gone. This has earned me lots praise. My favorite activity is sleeping, as long as I have a couch or dog bed I'm one happy girl. Not sure what happened, but I don't have many teeth left so I like a soft food diet. I'm a happy, laid back, girl who would love a home of my own to sleep and snuggle into, luv Sadie .

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Brutus Fawn Male 10 Years old Crate trained Dog friendly Great on a leash Well mannered House trained Fostered in Burien, WA I am a very handsome, sweet guy with lots of love to share. I get along with all my doggy friends here—males and females. Lazing around on the comfy dog beds is almost as amazing as the yummy things that come outa the treat cupboard. I am the sweetest Boxer and the ideal fur friend to hang around with on those lazy Fall Sunday afternoons. I do not jump on anyone and I do great with kids. In fact, I love those kids who love on me. I do need help, if you want to have me lie on the couch with you during the football game or while binge watch nextflix, I’d love to, but I need a boost/lift. Getting up on the couch or in the car by myself isn’t going to happen. My giddyup is a little stiff, so I’m not able to be a running or hiking partner. I have the desire, but I have some arthritis in my back and back legs. So, I’m told I cannot do what I once did. I take supplements and that helps me move better and consistently —check out my video https://youtu.be/UewKYeevZQ4. I can still lay down a good short run or two. I do love a good walk and get pretty excited when I see the leash—you should see me prance—mom says it is cute, I think it is a skill I’ve perfected over time. Mom thinks, I may be. hard of hearing or likely very selective in what I want to hear . I am beyond the puppy nonsense. So you’ll find that I won't chew things up, knock you over, or counter surf like all those young ones do. I’ll be your loyal companion, who just wants to spend time with you, laying my head in your lap, and showing you how much I love you, go fill out a app so we can meet, please.

Raven 1 1/2 Year old Female/spayed Dark chocolate coloring Loves people of all sizes Craves Love Boxer mix (Stafford Terrier maybe) Needs to be an only furchild Fostered in Banks, OR Raven amazes us all with her love of life, loyalty, and dedication. Several months ago, instead being the puppy she should have been, she set it all aside, and did the right thing. Rescued from wondering the streets, she landed in foster care, and birthed a beautiful litter of seven! She briefly landed with what we thought was her furever family. Her need to be an only furchild has led to our search for the RIGHT family and home, where her needs will be met. This little girl is a tremendous loving pet for the right family. Being so young and having gone though so much chaos in her life she has learned a great deal. Throughout it all she has made it clear that she will not waiver on being YOUR one and only—we think she deserves that right. We cannot say enough about what a remarkable a job she did by her pups nor how great we believe she her to be! You need to meet her and let her show you herself. Raven is available as a Foster2Adopt pup bit.ly/WHBRF2A or for adoption bit.ly/WHBRadopt. Complete the appropriate application, today.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Scrappy 5 Years Young Older children only due to his size Big dog friendly High prey drive so no cats, chickens or pocket pets Boxer/Bulldog Mix 80 pounds of love Fostered in Hood River, OR People talk about Scooby Doo and Scrappy too. Well, I say there just needs to be ME and You. I am a lovable lug of a guy. When people ask who I want to be when I grow up, I say Hooch from the Turner and Hooch movie--crime detective dog who likes to ride in cars and slobber you with kisses. Scrappy loves all people and full on thinks he and his 80 lbs can climb right into your lap. Due to his size, older children would be a better fit because when he starts to play fetch and do zoomies, you might be looking at a Nascar wipe out with smaller kids around. He adores kids, makes a great pillow, and just wants to please. Truly his only faults are biological in the prey drive way. If it runs he wants to chase it. If it's smaller than him, he wants to get it. 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. 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. As a Boxer/Old English Bulldog mix, he is a drooler. But hey, who hasn't been a drooler at some point in their life. I mean 8th grade, night guard and braces. Just expect that you might get some wet kisses (really wet kisses). If you have ever thought of adopting a larger dog, Scrappy is your side kick. He loves the park, the couch, the bed, and certain four legged friends. This guy is ready for a furever family, so jump into the Mystery Van, head home and get the process started by completing an application today, here is the online form link bit.ly/WHBRadopt ww.Wigglinhomeboxerrescue.org Email: wigglinhomeboxerrescue@gmail.com Phone (360) 723-0219

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Devious Male 6 Years Old Deaf Has Epilepsy (daily medication) Dog friendly (can be big dog selective) Cat friendly w/dog savvy cats Fostered in Spokane, WA Hi! My name is Devious (I didn’t pick it, so don’t hold it against me please!). In fact, I think they were confused when they came up with my name, because I am anything but devious! I am a trustworthy pup with a pure, innocent demeanor, always looking to you for reassurance. I just want to know that I have a place in this big ‘ol world and that I belong, just like everyone else. Let me tell you a little about myself. I had a home and a family just over 2 weeks ago. But then they told me I could no longer live there and well, sometimes it’s best to just leave an unstable past in the past. WHBR came and collected me from my prior living arrangements, and I was on the road to a new and brighter future. I arrived to my foster family very nervous and uncertain. You see, I am deaf and I have this medical condition where I will occasionally have seizures, which can be quite scary, but can also be managed well with daily medication. Anyways, I first met my human foster brother, and he was ok. I liked him better after he decided to share some of his human treats with me. -We’re buddies now. Next I got to meet my fur-brother, a fellow boxer. I was a lot more anxious about meeting him. I had only lived with a smaller dog at my previous home, and I never know what other dogs my size will think of me, so I need to make sure they know I am here and make my presence known to them. They call me “big dog selective”, but I’m not one to get into technical terms. All I know is, I like friends who are more submissive/mellow and can help put me at ease when we are first meeting and playing together. Luckily my fur-brother is great, so now we enjoy running in the yard and having a good play session “boxer-style” a few times a day. A couple of days later, I got to meet this small furry thing called a cat. I’m not sure I had ever seen one of those before! I just couldn’t take my eyes off of her! But she just laid there, which got boring pretty quickly so I walked away. I still get interested every time I see her, wondering if she will do anything neat or entertaining, but she rarely does (she’s pretty lazy; or foster momma says she’s “dog savvy” so she just ignores me. –Pshhh). Anyways, she did take off running this one time and I had a great time chasing her into the house! Didn’t catch her though…. And you know, I’m not sure I’d know what to do with her even if I had. She’s just “OK”. She rubs against me like she’s expecting me to “pet” her or something. Cats are weird. So most of my time here has been spent lounging around with my foster family. I like naps. I also REALLY like going for car rides and for walks. In the car, my foster family says I can get a bit loud though. It’s just that I get really excited whenever I see someone out walking or driving in their car as we’re driving by, so I bark to let them know I can see them! And I am pretty good at walking on a leash, honestly. The only thing that really excites/distracts me while I’m doing that is other dogs that might be outside. Again, I like to bark and I get excited when I let them know I’m there walking by. I can get a bit nervous if approached from behind/where I don’t see you coming, or if startled awake from one of my snooze-fests, but I calm quickly and easily with pets and reassurance. I also REALLY enjoy giving smooches. I will smooch you head to toe if you’ll let me (and then you won’t even need a bath! Win-win!). I’m just so thankful when you let me snuggle, I really want you to know how much I love and appreciate you! Dog toys are ok. I prefer the big floppy stuffed ones so I can rip their guts out; that’s pretty fun. Bully sticks are also a pretty yummy treat to chew on, but I prefer ones that have already been chewed a bit (gotta get that perfect texture/scent going before they’re really ready for chewing). I love that my food comes so regularly here! AND, if the human-folk are busy and I’m getting hungry for dinner, I have this neat trick where I just look at them and bark, and they get up and fill my bowl (I’m a pretty big fan of 5pm dinner time, CONSISTENTLY). Speaking of tricks, I may be deaf, but that doesn’t slow me down! I already know some basic skills like “sit” & “shake” to get treats. My foster momma says I am such a smart boy, and I REALLY like treats, so I should pick up more hand signals in no time. Bedtime around here consists of me snuggling my foster-parents in their bed all night long! They have some smallish cushions thrown down on the floor here and there, and the other dog seems to enjoy laying on them, but I’m not really interested in that. I prefer a human lap to snuggle in, or at least a spot on the couch as close to them as I can get! I really don’t like it when they are out of my sight. Makes me nervous. I am also not a big fan of going into the crate. I never had to do that at my other home. I could just roam free there all day long and didn’t have any problems. I haven’t had any accidents or chewed anything I’m not supposed to here either, but I suppose trust takes a little time to build. So I will go into the crate with a treat bribe, and I really like it better if I can see my foster-brother in his crate while we “do our time”. Thankfully I don’t have to go in there very often. Anyways, enough about me, what about you!? Have you filled out your adoption application to see if we might make a good match!? I am looking for my furever home. I just get so attached to my people, I would love to find my perfect person/family and never have to leave them ever again! -Love, Devious Aka Dev or “the-sweetest-boy-on-Earth” Adoption application link bit.ly/WHBRadopt www.Wigglinhomeboxerrescue.org Email: wigglinhomeboxerrescue@gmail.com Phone (360) 723-0219
