Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Alana 9 year old female 55 pounds Crate and leash trained Dog friendly Fostered in Portland, Oregon Hi, my name is Alana! I am a very sweet, quiet and gentle girl. I love going on walks, I have wonderful leash manners, and I have been told I am a graceful prancer. I love to be around people, snuggle, and will follow you wherever you go. Sometimes my affection is overwhelming, but I am working on my manners and learning to give people space. I will happily be crated with something yummy to snack on. My Foster Mom is working on leaving me out for a few hours at a time and I have been doing well! I am a little scared to go outside on my own, so Foster Mom is sure to be home to take me out more frequently. I am certain that once I get settled in my forever home I will gain confidence and be more comfortable going outside on my own. I would love to be in a home with another dog to follow and help build my confidence with the outdoors.

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 / Mixed (short coat). Greta 10 year old female Large dog friendly (Submissive males best) No small dogs No cats Older kids okay Crate Trained Pasco, WA Hello new families! My name is Greta. I was found as a stray and brought to a shelter. Although I was a favorite among the staff, I just wasn't a happy girl. See, I tried my best to wiggle my behind as adopters walked by, tried to steal a kiss from anyone that put their hand to my cage, used my beautiful eyes to pull at their heart strings, but as much as I tried, it was the younger pups that got picked to be adopted. Its all I would dream about night and day. So the shelter reached out to NWBR to help make my wish come true. They knew someone like you would be looking for a dog just like me! I know I am not young any more but I am a good girl and have so much more love to give. I'm mature and wise and you wont have to worry about my manners. I don’t chew on things or jump on you even tho I get so very excited when you are near me. I don’t climb on furniture unless you need a couch cuddler to fall asleep with or a warm soft body to snuggle with to keep you warm and safe at night. I am crate trained and love my peanut butter Kong when I go in, although I could be left out since I am such a good girl. I am potty trained and have not had 1 accident while at my foster family's home. I may be 10 but I can run zoomies like no other and I can jump up on the bed or in the van which is pretty high. Steps are no big deal for me and I can beat you to the top every time. I walk great on a leash and am really excited to enjoy our adventure. I know how to lay down and sit. But best of all, if you got a raise at work, ran an extra mile at the gym, your Seahawks made a touch down, I can give you a high five. Yep, Im that good. I love kids but prefer older respectful ones. I'm not a fan of cats but do well with the pigs, goats and the pony. I get along with all the big dogs here. I'm best with big dogs because I am a larger boxer weighing in at 85 lbs. I would feel so bad if I hurt a little one. I would also be just fine without a dog friend as long as I have you. I have such a big heart and love to please you in any way I can. I will whine a little to let you know when its chow time if you got busy and forgot to feed me at the usual time. I love my food so to keep me at a good weight my foster mom limits the treats I get. She is just helping me keep my lady figure. So if you are looking for a great companion to love you no matter what, watch movies with, be there to listen if you had a bad day, go for a hike with, throw some balls with, and never let you down, you found me! Come make my day, my life, and give me that home that I deserve. I will give you all I have in return.

I have been in my foster home for quite a while, and I do like it here, but I would really like a home that is mine forever. I am an older lady that knows what I want, and I like to be the boss. Once I know I can trust you I will give you kisses, loves, and even a boxer wiggle. I will do best as your only dog. Even though I can be left at home uncrated I prefer a home with my people home more often than not. While I do okay with kids, I would do best in a home without. I like my home to be quiet, and kids run and are too noisy! I have two really comfortable dog beds in my foster home, one in the living room and one in the bedroom. I occasionally sleep on the couch, but I like my own bed on the floor best. I've been waiting a while to find my perfect family. Please submit an application if you think you're it!!

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Miracle 2 years old Dog Friendly Cats Unknown Kid Friendly Fostered in Sutherlin, OR My name is Miracle and I'd like to tell you a story about how that name of mine came to be.One day, this nice lady was minding her own business, heading to her exercise class when she heard what sounded like whining from a garbage dumpster. "How can that be?" she thought. She decided to check it out. To her surprise, when she opened the lid, a brown dog was laying there inside. It looked to her like the dog had a pretty severe neck wound, so she took the dog to the vet and they discovered that the dog's collar was embedded into her neck. The vets removed it and fixed her all up, assuring that she would be good as new in no time at all. All that, thanks to that guardian angel that saved her. Well folks, that dog was ME! The definition of "miracle" is: An amazing or wonderful occurance.... I think that totally fits my situation and is the perfect name. I am healing great and am as happy as can be. I live life to the fullest and I hold no grudges. I am living with my foster family and have 2 foster fur brothers that I am getting to know. I really want to run free with them, but my foster mom won’t let me play as much as I want until my neck is completely healed. The boxer type pooches like to nibble on each other and she doesn’t want me to get hurt. My foster mom thinks I haven’t had a lot of attention or training in my short life, because I really didn’t know any commands when I first got here. She is very proud of me though. I now sit before leaving my crate. The crate doesn't bother me, by the way. I am very well behaved inside of it. I sit before going in/out doors and before I eat. I walk pretty well, but get a little excited at all the new things to smell and see so I have to be reminded to stay beside my people. Right now, while my neck is healing, I wear a harness. My mom says makes me pull like a sled dog. She thinks I will learn much faster when I get to wear a collar again. We are currently learning what "down" and "place" are and I am working on my manners. She says its not nice to jump up on people to show them how excited I am to see them. I had no idea, so I'll keep working on that. I do like those treats, so I don’t mind the learning part. My mom also feels that whoever is lucky enough to take me home forever should plan on finding a trainer to work with us. She saysI am really smart but I am just a big puppy, and a professional trainer may be able to help us learn quicker. I haven’t been around any cats, but I will likely find them too interesting so I probably should go to a cat-free home. If I am adopted into a home with another dog, I need them to be pretty even tempered and relaxed. I tend to get pretty excited and go under and over and all around my foster brothers and they just get out of my way. I would hate to make a new brother mad at me. I know I have a shocking story that grabs your attention. It may make you feel a little sorry for me and make you want to just bring me home to baby and spoil me. Trust me, that is not what I need. What I need, is a leader to show me right from wrong and how to be the best dog I can be. I will love and respect you more for that. In dog language, that is way better than hugs and kisses. Although, if I earn them, I will gladly take the hug, kisses & pets also! So if your looking for a best friend, exercise buddy, snuggle bunny, and partner for life, look no further. I’m your gal.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Rocky (aka Bobby) 2 year old male 54 pounds Dog friendly No Cats Older kid friendly Crate and leash trained Fostered in Battle Ground. Washington Hi there! I am Rocky and I am the best tail chaser around, if only my nubbin was a little longer! I have loads of energy and like to go go go! Before relocating to the Pacific Northwest I was earning my keep on the streets of sunny California. Since being taken in by some pretty awesome humans I have started learning what it’s like to live inside and be shown love. I walk great on my gentle leader, can do a pretty mean sit stay, and have realized being cool and collected is much better than being a crazy man! I am still learning that I can trust humans so I need a family that will continue with a trainer so I can become the well adjusted boxer my foster mom knows I can be. Sometimes I just forget that people offer treats and love so I try to sound tough with my voice when I am unsure of things. I also have a teenager attitude and want to be a rebel, but when I am reminded what is appropriate with good leadership I become a perfect gentleman. I have come a long way with my social skills and self control but I would love for my new family to continue working with me. I LOVE to play and think it would be awesome to have a fur sibling that can be rough and tumble with me and a family that takes me on long walks. Once I get my energy out I like to curl up in a nice cozy bed and sleep the night away. .If you would like to adopt him, fill out an adoption application on our website www.nwboxerrescue.org Like us on facebook for more photos of this handsome boy, as well as other boxers we have available! www.facebook.com/northwestboxerrescue

I love to be active, but I do love my snuggle time with Foster Mom. I live with 2 fur brothers and a fur sister. One of my fur brothers is my best pal, we're the same age and love to play and wrestle. My other fur brother the best! I'm not into toys, I'd rather have a pal to play with. I know a few basic commands and ride nicely in the car. My foster Family says that I am a very smart and obedient dog, they make me blush! Odin's Foster Mom here-He's a super dog and has mellowed out quite a bit since joining our family. We are not sure how he will do with younger children. He's been around a couple of our neighborhood kids and just mainly barked at them. It does take him time to warm up to new people though. If you're doing something that he does not like he will definitely let you know. Overall, he's adapted well and he is a very loving boy. He needs an active family that will give him lots of love and make him feel safe.

I am a sweet senior girl looking for a calm and patient forever home to help me learn to feel safe and loved. My favorite place to be is at the side of my humans. I am sensitive to loud noises, so older children would be best. I am still full of energy and will be playful at times, but I prefer couch time and car rides. I rarely bark. I love other dogs and currently live with four others. I will groom them whether they like it or not! No crate is necessary with me. I will keep your spot warm on the couch until you get home. I do have a little bit of leash anxiety if a dog gets too close for comfort, but my Foster Mom is working on my confidence to help with that. I would like to continue working on this in my forever home, especially in a high dog population area. If you have a kind heart and lots of love to share, I will become your most loyal and loving companion.

Roxy S 7 1/2 yr old female Boxer mix Dog possible Kid friendly (older recommended) No cats House and crate trained Pasco, WA Well hello there, I am Roxy S! Welcome to a little about me. I am roughly 6 years old, beautiful flashy fawn with some silver starting to make it's way into my life, I have big brown questioning eyes full of love and I am a very gentle soul that is looking for someone that can be my everything. I am timid and shy but will warm up quickly to anyone. I need slow introductions to other dogs due to my shyness, I have a tendency to fear them. I currently live with 2 foster boxers and 2 foster little fuzzy yappy things, sometimes the littles get into my personal bubble and make me uncomfortable. I don't know how I would do with a cat because we don't have any of those here but I have chased squirrels so probably not the greatest idea unless they are super dog savvy. I also like kids but bigger kids would be better for me because I am so timid. My days consist of hangin out catching whats left of the summer sun, I am not a big toy player or ball chaser. My most favorite is just to hang with my human. Humans are my world, I like to have my head stroked and told what a pretty princess I am. I do well in a kennel bit it is not necessary at all, I will curl up and take a nap while you go do business away from home. I am learning to like car rides, they are pretty foreign to me so I will pant and drool while we are driving to our destination. I do have a deep throaty growl and a pretty loud bark if I think someone is trying to invade my home but honestly I wouldn't hurt a fly. I like to go for walks, it's a fairly new concept so we are working on leave it...alot, while we walk, and some leash manners but I just want to explore every single thing the world has to offer. If you think you want me to come cuddle with you and make me your shadow, slide on over to www.nwboxerrescue.com and fill out an application and be sure to put my name, ROXY S in there.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Tyson 8 year old male 70 pounds Kid friendly Crate trained Knows basic commands Fostered in Marysville, Washington Hi guys! My name is Tyson and I would sure love to love you! My Foster Mom calls me her cuddle bud! Don’t get me wrong, I love to play fetch for a little bit each day but I am beginning to slow down so my real passion is my people. I love people, even the mini ones. My Foster Sister is 7 and she is really good at scratching that place on my neck that I just can’t reach. I have a lot going for me! There’s my good looks- everyone keeps telling me how handsome I am! Plus, I’m trained to use my crate. I don’t love my crate, but I don’t hate it either. My leash walking skills are superior, and my overall temperament is ideal- calm with great manners. I am very gentle, and when I do decide to play fetch I let my people just reach in and take the ball right from my mouth. I always want to know what my people are up to and will gladly follow anywhere you go. I really love it when we go somewhere in the car! I ride very well in the car. I hope you’ll let me sleep with you because cuddles are my favorite! I’m not too pushy though. I am very loyal to and protective of my Foster family. They always say things like “Loyal” and “Protective” and “Good Boy”. I’m not sure what that means, but they seem happy and if they are happy, I am happy! I don’t bark much, just a peep or two to make my presence known and if there is someone at the door. I haven’t encountered too many other dogs while in my foster home, but I’ve given indications that I would like to be an only dog. I have met a lot of people lately and I really like that! I am a good listener, and I trust my Foster Mom when she says its ok and introduces me. I am a bit hesitant of strangers because I take pride in making sure my Foster family is safe. It only took a couple of minutes to know I’d be happy in my Foster home, and boy did I make myself at home! I will quickly adapt to my new forever home! I like a little water in my food since I’m getting a little older and don’t have the strong teeth of my younger years. But watch out for the after dinner slobber! Foster Mom here- Tyson is the biggest, sweetest love there is! He hasn’t left my side in our time together. Tyson has not had one slip up. I’d say that his biggest flaw is the snoring, but I promise it is endearing. He isn’t as rambunctious as most boxers and prefers being inside to outside- at least in this drippy cold weather. Tyson is an absolute pleasure. I just know you will fall in love with this good boy as soon as you meet him!

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). ~~Rocky Juan 3 yr old male No Children Dog friendly Basic training Crate trained Requires calm, quiet home with little foot traffic Woodinville, WA Hola! My name is Rocky Juan Pedro Taco Martinez Lopez, but my humans call me Rocky for short. I am an incredibly lovey-dovey baby doll. I love to sit on my foster mom’s lap. She calls it my “charging station” because when I get tired from playing with my fur brothers, I like to catch my breath while on her lap. I am also a big time cuddler when it comes to bed time. Sometimes when it is hot in the summer, I will choose to sleep on the floor, but most of the time I love to jump up and keep my humans’ feets warm and cozy. If you want me to sleep in my crate, I am totally fine with that too. I will go into my crate by choice for naps sometimes, because it is my special place. But I will also go lay down in there if you ask me to, and I won’t make a peep. I am not very high energy, so I don’t mind relaxing, but I like to play too… especially chasing squeaky toys! And did I mention that I have never had an accident in the house? Boy, I’m smart. My mom always jokes that even though I came from Mexico, so I should speak Spanish, that I understand English perfectly well. She speaks in full sentences to me, and I am so smart that I know what she wants even if it’s not a command that I know. I hope to one day get to know my new family so well that I can finish their sentences for them…and their sandwiches. Did I mention that I love food? I am so easy to train because you just have to offer me a dog cookie, and I will do anything you ask. Sometimes my foster family even gives me leftover meat from their dinners, and that is my favorite. But mi madre says that I am loco, because I love veggies too! I share stalks of celery and cucumbers with her! Talk about a raw diet! I do scarf down my dog kibble very quickly though, so my family can’t free-feed me because I will eat until my tummy explodes, I think. I have a very strict meal time, and I jump for joy when I hear the food bowls clanging, and sometimes I get to eat out of a fancy Kong toy that makes me work hard for food. I also love water. Well…to drink, that is. Though I am not much of a swimmer, I enjoy playing in the sprinkler and sticking my head into the running shower to lap up the water. I love to chew on toys and bones, but I am not aggressive with my food, toys, or dog snacks. I actually love to play tug of war with my fur brothers, but sometimes it takes me a while to convince them to play with me. I am definitely the instigator in the relationship. My mom says I have a tendency to instigate other things once in a while too. Oops. For this reason, I have to have slow, monitored introductions with new dogs and humans before we become best friends and play all day. I just like to be careful around strangers is all. I would do anything to protect my family. I love my people, and I know they would give their lives for me, so I will do the same for them if it ever comes to it. Once you are in my circle of trust, we have an unbreakable bond. Do you want to let me into your family and into your hearts? Foster mom here! Rocky J is a darling boy and is a total joy to have around the house. He is one of the most affectionate dogs I have ever met, which is a lot coming from a Boxer home. Rocky suffers from anxiety that requires him to take one pill a day that he gobbles down with some peanut butter. Before medical intervention, every single little noise or movement would spook him and he would lay down and cry terrified. We can only imagine what he has been through in his life before being rescued, but we can attest to the fact that he has made leaps and bounds of progress in the past few months with us. His fears will never fully leave him, and thus all introduction must be done slowly, on leash, and at his speed. Rocky needs a home with few visitors, with a family that understands and respects his needs – that is comfortable shutting him in the bedroom when the occasional dinner guest is over, for everyone’s best interest. He does well living with other dogs, big and small, as long as they aren’t dominant or intimidating to him. We would recommend a home with no kids, as the commotion that tends to come along with children can make his anxiety peak. He also would prefer to live somewhere with enough space to run, perhaps with a fur sibling of fitting demeanor. His fears can be a blessing too, because he loves his humans so fiercely; I have no doubt that he would protect your home if it was ever threatened. We recently were almost broken into, but Rocky J scared the burglar away (while our personal dogs cowered in the corner and would have let the burglar get away with all we had). We love Rocky so much, and seeing him go will be heart wrenching, but that is the joy of fostering these wonderful babies.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Bella 4 9 year old female 70 lbs Large dog-friendly, not sure about small dogs Kid friendly No cats House trained/crate trained Fostered in Corvallis, OR Hi, my name is Bella 4, and it’s a real pleasure to meet you! I came up to the Northwest from a shelter in California, just days before Christmas. Thank goodness for the folks at NWBR who literally came to the rescue during the holidays. I have a stockpile of love and affection just bursting at the seams. I didn’t waste any time making myself right at home and spreading love all over my foster home. But I won’t lie, I’m really excited to find my forever-family, and I’m reserving some of my extra-special love just for them. What do you think? Are you up for some serious adoration? Let me just tell you up front, this is not my first rodeo, and my foster mom says I’m an easy-keeper! I don’t do a lot of fancy tricks, but I know how to get along in life. You don’t need to fret about house training—I’ve got that down. I get along fine with other dogs. To be honest, my foster brother can be a bit of a challenge, but I just try to avoid trouble. Go along to get along is what I say. I don’t get too worked up when there’s a knock at the door—maybe just a quick bark to let them know I’m here. I have good mealtime manners, I share toys and beds nicely and I wait my turn when treats are being offered. And hey, if there’s an open crate with a soft bed inside, I’ll make myself right at home. I’ll stay in there all night without making a peep, if that’s where you want me. Of course if there’s space on that couch, or on that cozy bed, I’d be more than happy to help keep it warm! But even a nice dog bed next to your bed is perfectly fine with me. There’s a big human and a medium-sized human at my foster home, and I can confirm, I love all humans. I haven’t seen any small or tiny humans around here, but I can’t imagine I’d have any trouble with them, because humans are just the best. Honestly, toys and treats are great, but a human family of my own is all I really want. But while we’re being honest, I should tell you, I’m not so keen to cuddle with a cat. In fact, I don’t think I’d want to be a cat if I met myself on the street. Foster mom says I definitely need to work on my leash skills a bit. On the upside, I don’t insist on meeting every dog we see, and if some goofball is barking his fool head off, I just walk on. But I don’t recall anyone ever telling me I’m not supposed to pull on the leash. I think with some more practice I’ll be able to remember better. Fortunately, I really love going on walks, so we can practice every day! I’m also a bit rusty on the basic commands. I’ve been brushing up with my foster mom, but I’m not sure I’ve ever heard some of this stuff? I know what sit means, but I might wait to see if you’re really serious, since it can be a bit hard on the knees. Someone taught me to shake, and I really like doing that! Generally speaking, I’m willing, I have a good attention span and I like treats, so it could be a fun thing to work on together! I guess what I’m saying is, I really just want to settle down for good and spread the love. Trouble is the last thing on my mind. If this sounds up your alley, I might be perfect for you.http://www.nwboxerrescue.org/adoption-form
