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.

      Sex: Female Female

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). ~Annaliese 4 Years Old Boxer/Dingo Mix Fostered in Springfield, OR A nice lady from WHBR rescued me and my four babies. I was a little underweight, had lots of ticks & fleas, and my skin was really sore and raw. My foster mom fixed me right up and I gained weight in no time so my puppies had enough nourishment. One day I decided enough was enough, and I told my puppies it was time for me to move on. My time with them gave way to my own needs to heal. Loud noises frighten me. I am wary when meeting someone new. I may be shy meeting you at first, but if you are calm and patient I will warm right up to you. With healing, however, comes trust. My forever family will provide security and cultivate my trust. I love human affection and touch. My leash skills are developing, but I need reminders to not pull. I know “sit”, and am working on “stay” but I get a little impatient. I also like other dogs, especially the ones who don’t run up into my face and scare me. I am learning how to play with other dogs. My opportunities to play were limited when parenting responsibilities were the center of my existence. My foster mom says that the perfect family is looking for me too! I’m housebroken and will go in my crate when you want, too. My preference is being out with you, but I don’t complain when you ask me to go in. My mom says I’ll really like the beach when I get to go there some day. I’d love to have kids or people who want to play with me and maybe a dog pal. Are you the people who will take me to the beach and show me the world?? I hope so. A word from Annaliese’s foster family – Annaliese is the sweetest, gentlest girl around even without considering the difficult life she had before coming into rescue. She will warm your heart, make you smile every day at her goofiness, and be your best friend forever. She hasn’t had a lot of experiences and is a little tentative when presented with a new situation, but then she jumps right in and starts exploring. She’s smart, curious, & a total love bug. www.Wigglinhomeboxerrescue.org Email: wigglinhomeboxerrescue@gmail.com Phone (360) 723-0219

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). ~Scooter II 4.5 Years Old Sealed Brindle (you can really see my brindle in the sunlight) Male Long Tail Fostered in Eugene, OR Hey there all, my name is Scooter II and I am a fun-loving, easy going guy! At 6.5 years old, I have outgrown the annoying puppy nonsense--you know, the chewing, digging and such. I pride myself on my ability to blend with you and your pack and follow your lead (I even like those furry cat things). My foster mom says I have a huge heart and a sweet face. I love it when she calls me "Scootsie", I come over right away for kisses, I really like those and belly rubs too!! I pretty much just like to be where you are, whether you are working around the house or we are cuddling up to watch T.V., I will join in! Don't get me wrong here, I am not just a bump on a log, I like to run around outside and wrestle with my new fur brother but I am a courteous house guest and will always stick to playing with just my own items! Foster mom has discovered that I really like cheese and peanut butter too, but no carrots! What is the point of the veggie I ask!? If you already, don't want to adopt me let me say that I am very good in a crate (although probably not needed), I know sit and am currently working on "leave it". I am pretty good at walking on leash too but am undergoing a mini refresher course and am doing very well! I do like to sniff and explore so for that reason foster mom says that whoever is interested in me will need a fully fenced (6ft) yard to keep me safe. "Boo" I say, bring on the adventures! I also sleep in my own bed at night next to yours so that you can rest better and keep your bed "hair free" however, I would jump at the chance to snuggle up there with you if you asked me!! If you think we might be a match, please fill out an adoption application and let’s get this ball rolling! http://tinyurl.com/WHBRAdoptApp https://www.facebook.com/pg/BoxerRescue/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1037129059751660 www.Wigglinhomeboxerrescue.org Email: wigglinhomeboxerrescue@gmail.com Phone (360) 723-0219

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Kuiaha 10 Years Old Boxer/Lab Mix Fostered in Burien, WA Hi there! My name is Kuiaha (my foster mom calls me Huey) and I hail from the beautiful island of Maui. Yep, Hawaii. I found myself back at the shelter after my parents had to move to a place that would not allow dogs. The shelter took good care of me and extracted seven teeth that were giving me some pain. Then, because I’m so lucky and adorable, the shelter contacted Wigglin’ Home Boxer Rescue and asked if they would be interested in finding me a home. That’s how I ended up in Seattle. I’m a very good boy and my foster parents love having me around. I spent the first night in a crate. Not my favorite place, but I went in without any trouble. After that night, my foster mom said I was such a good boy I could sleep anywhere I wanted. I live with my foster sister Sofie, also a rescued Boxer. She’s 11 and not in great health but we get along fine, except she doesn’t like it when I get in her bed, but she's a gracious host and I get away with it. Sometimes I can’t help myself and want to finish off her food for her and she may give me “the look” and again she is gracious. I think my favorite place is outside (after all, I’m from Maui). Under the apple tree in the shade is great place and when I get a little cool, I make my way into the sun. My leash skills are pretty good but I enjoy the practice. I listen and follow the sit and stay directions very well. When I see it’s time for “Scooby Snacks”, I walk in the kitchen and sit down without being asked. My foster mom said I could sleep in bed with her and Sofie but I can’t figure out those darn stairs up to the bed, so I sleep on my bed next to their bed. Also, I love that comfy couch! Overall, I am a very sweet, ten year old Boxer-mix with a great disposition. I’d rather not be alone, so a fur sibling is preferred, or a stay at a home mom or dad. Oh, and I LOVE wet food. My foster mom gives me grain free kibble mixed with grain free wet food. And one little tip: if I have to take pills (and believe me I can find them in any food you try), it’s best to put them in coconut oil. Not only does it make my coat feel wonderful, I love it � Foster Mom here. Kuiaha is the sweetest boy. He came out of the crate from Maui with his tail wagging a mile a minute. five hours in a crate in an airplane! He’s such a happy boy. No bad habits that I have seen. He doesn’t chew on things, does not counter surf, or get in the garbage. He whines a little when he needs to go outside, but really prefers the back door open so he can come and go as he pleases. He stays alone during the day with his foster sister Sofie and they get along fine. They are both older pups so they aren’t much into playing. Kuiaha loves his walks. As he is a strong boy, a harness is necessary. If he starts to pull, I either stop walking or tug the leash a little and he listens. When he is told to stay or sit, he does so immediately. He is not a barker. Every once in a while he will let out a bark, but not very often. Kuiaha is not dog reactive. On our walks, we encounter lots of barking dogs behind fences and he just keeps walking. If they have a higher pitched voice, you may hear him whine a little but is not aggressive. He ignores cats. He is perfect--well except for that wagging tail which should be considered a lethal weapon �You can find the link to the online adoption form on the left side of our Facebook page, under the banner on our Website, or here http://tinyurl.com/WHBRAdoptApp https://www.facebook.com/pg/BoxerRescue/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1038121326319100 www.Wigglinhomeboxerrescue.org Email: wigglinhomeboxerrescue@gmail.com Phone (360) 723-0219

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). ~Scrappy 2 Years Old Boxer/Bulldog Mix Fostered in Poulsbo, WA Hey guys & gals – Scrappy is in the house! Everyone knows when the majorly cool, 80 lb. dude arrives. I’ve had to survive a lot in my life and the outside of my body carries many scars but my inside is a giant puddle of love! I love everybody and because I’m Boxer/Old English Bulldog mix, all that love just oozes out my jowls. People say I should come with a bib. That also applies to the water bowl & food dish. My theory is I’m not sloppy just generous. I share my stuff all over the place. I’ve got a bunch of dogs buddies at my current pad, both male and female, and they’re all A-OK with me. I do 120 lb. dogs and 5 lb. dogs and everything in between. I’m way too chill to be worried about other dogs. My current folks think I’m so cool they’ve even given me extra names like – Goofy, Hooch, Doofus, Goober. Are you getting the picture?? I’m not much on playing or exercise. Give me a couple leisurely strolls around the yard or around the block and that’s peachy with me. Hiking trails and jogging paths are definitely not on my “to do list”. I’m also a wonderful supervisor – I’ll happily lay around and make sure you get things done properly (unless I doze off, of course). And when the work is done, I’ll be your snuggle buddy on the couch for as long as you want. I’m also a great conversationalist with a large vocabulary – whimpers, purrs, whines, snuffles, yawns, grumbles, mini howls, sneezes and deep rumbles. There is one secret I need to share – Mom says I have a strong prey drive. When I see a squirrel, cat, rabbit or chickens (even in a cage) I go from Clark Kent to Superman in 10 seconds so dogs are my best bet for home companions! A note from foster Mom: Scrappy is the biggest goofball around. He is a quirky, bumbling, adorable big guy with a huge personality who will make you laugh til you cry and give you his heart with no reservations. He’s house, crate, and leash trained, loves car rides. This Goofy guy will fill your day with joy!!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Rey 6 Years Old (approximately) Good with other dogs Good with cats Crate Trained Fostered in Lacey, WA Rey came into rescue severely emaciated and suffering severe arthritis in both hind legs. It is so surprising that while in the midst of pain, hunger, and fear, he has remained so gentle and loving. His medical issues have kept him more subdued, so we aren't seeing his complete personality, yet. We are seeing more and more of it emerge daily. Rey is very exuberant when his food is being prepared and is a very enthusiastic eater! At this week's weigh in, he had gained three more pounds and in a few weeks, hopefully, our vets will be able to do a more thorough evaluation of his medical needs. In the meantime, Rey is just so sweet and lovable. His fur is soft and shiny and he loves to be petted and scratched. Kitties seem to mystify him, but he has shown no out of the ordinary interest in them. We have two female Boxers, whom he gets along very well with. He pays very little attention to dogs on either side of our fenced yard. Until he gets a bit more meat on this bones, his world consists of restricted activity (to conserve calories), with breaks to lay in the sun on the warm grass and frequent small meals. He is a sweet trusting boy with just a tad of that Boxer stubbornness showing. He will have special healthcare needs for the rest of his life so a quiet home where he will not be alone for long periods will be mandatory. You can find the link to the online adoption form on the left side of our Facebook page, under the banner on our Website, or here http://tinyurl.com/WHBRAdoptApp. Rey will not be ready to leave foster care for a least another six weeks. He has healing to do and still still medical needs (hopefully just a neuter) to tackle in the near future https://www.facebook.com/pg/BoxerRescue/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1025491420915424 www.Wigglinhomeboxerrescue.org Email: wigglinhomeboxerrescue@gmail.com Phone (360) 723-0219

I love affection and will follow you everywhere you go, waiting for that hand to pet me. I love to be around people. I am a big girl and I use my weight to take you for a walk. I would benefit from more leash training as well as a harness. I know where I want to go and in my mind I have to get there as fast as my short little legs will take me. I do not need to go to the gym 'cause I am already all muscle. I do not jump up on the new people I meet because I have manners. I sit when told, but that "stay" thing is not for me. I need more practice, or so I am told. Oh, and if you want to shake hands, I am your gal. I love to give you my paw when you ask for it. I like the boy dog in my foster home. We play and play and play and I wear him out. I have decided I am just too pretty to have another female in my family. After all, my eyes will get you every time and you just don’t need another girl around. I forgot to mention I am crate trained and house trained so that’s another plus. I also do not bark – that’s for the other dogs to do. I am too busy to get involved in all that.

Rufus Fawn Male 7 – 9 Years old Kid Friendly Crate trained Fostered in Woodinville, WA If only I could talk I would tell you all about the rough life I have had. Coming into a California Shelter as a stray and being scared and starving. Then life changed--I was rescued and brought up to Washington to my foster Mama and I am so loving the good life now. I am very skinny but now getting a lot of yummy food 4 times a day. It is like amazing. No more scavenging for food, it just shows up in this bowl constantly throughout the day. I sure like that. I am a very handsome sweet old guy with lots of love to share. I get along with all my doggy friends here -- males, females and a little Chi. Laying on comfy dog beds is almost as amazing as the magic food bowl. So happy old bones don't have to suffer the hard ground any longer. Im not fond of the rain but I do go out and do my business like Im suppose to. I love walks and walk great on a leash. Car rides are my favorite, I do need a boost to hop in. I sleep all night on my dog bed and don’t get up till everyone else does. Then its potty time and yes again there is that food in the bowl thing again. Heaven�. I'm fine with kids that are respectful and I prefer the older ones, since I am just a lay around kinda guy who doesn't really play much. I look at toys when the other pups are running around and I'm not sure why they are doing that. Maybe some day I'll give it try. I love to be with my people but I am not needy or anxious if they walk out of the room or go somewhere without me. I am crate trained but do fine being left out. I love to take naps but if you grab your keys or leash--you would think I was a younger pup. I don’t mind baths and I love the massage of being towel dried, especially after I come in from takin' care of business out in the rain. I will even rub up against the other dogs to dry off. I am the sweetest boxer and perfect fur friend to hang around with on those lazy Sunday afternoons. I am looking for a family that is home more often than being away working all day. Taking me to work would be awesome, since I am such a friendly guy I can be a great customer service guy. A retired household might be just the ticket. So if you want a dog that doesn’t chew things up, knock you over, counter surf like all those young ones do. And you just want a guy to spend time with you and lay his head in your lap, showing you how much he loves you, go fill out a app so we can meet. Foster Mom thinks I am the perfect specimen of the boxer breed. Signed Rufus with love.
