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.

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.

      Age: Adult
      Location: Woodinville, WA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Moeshe 4 yr old male 62 lbs No cats Crate/house trained Large dog friendly Children over 12 yrs of age Fostered in Vancouver, WA Hello, my name is Moeshe (Mo-She) and I am as unique as my name. I have been told I have the most beautiful coat, black with gold stripes that shine in the sun. I have four white paws and some white flash on my chest. I am getting used to my crate and sleep there all night long. During the day I have been out in my foster parent’s house exploring and mainly chilling out. I have stayed in my crate for a little while during the day but if I could just be with you I would be happy. I am a pretty mellow guy and rarely bark but I do act like a puppy sometimes and just like to play. I have been going on walks on nature trails with my foster mom and I have really enjoyed these walks. I haven’t had any issues with people, children or the other dogs on my walks. I did see a cat one day and wanted to chase it so right now I don’t think sharing a house with a cat would be a good idea. My Boxer friend has walked with me and we have gotten along fine. I ride in a car well and don’t fuss much because I know that I will soon be going on a walk or shopping. I have even been to the vet a couple of time for follow up vaccinations and have gotten along fine with everyone. I do need some help on walking without pulling but I am a fast learner. I hope I can continue to cuddle with you on the couch but if that is a no-no I will understand and be ok on dog bed. But stretching out on the couch in my favorite. When I first came into my foster home, I admit I was a little scared and a bit vocal about sharing my foster mom so I do need slow introductions to people. But every day I am gaining confidence and trust in my humans and I am learning that they just want me to be happy. So when I quickly get to know others I am your friendly guy. I would probably do better in a home with children over 12 since I am still gaining trust and confidence. When I first got to my foster house I admit I did have a couple of accidents inside. Now I am going outside ok but I still need to have you help me understand how I can let you know I need to go outside. I am a fast learner and want to do what you expect of me. I have a great appetite and have eaten well since I have been in my foster home. It has only been me in my foster home so I don’t know if I like to eat with others but I haven’t had any problems with my foster family feeding me. Foster mom here: Moeshe is a loving, mellow guy that just needs a strong leader to keep him on the road to success. If someone could be home during the day that would be the best for Moeshe since he seems to enjoy being around humans. He doesn’t really seem to be interested in jumping up on counters or begging for human food. He is being trained to be on his dog bed while the humans are eating. If you want a mellow companion that just needs a little direction, Moeshe could be the right one for you. If you are interested in adopting Moeshe, please complete the NWBR application at http://www.nwbr.org/#!adoption-form/c1dw9.

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Woodinville, WA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Junior (2) 4 year old male 70lbs Leash training and doing well NO CRATES Dog friendly, big and small Kid friendly No cats or small non-canine animals House trained Fostered in Anderson Island, WA Good day everyone! My name is Junior (2) and I am quite the guy (according to my foster mom). I have a tail, as you see, and when it gets to wagging, look out! I'm such a sweet, happy boy and you may need to clear off that coffee table. Even with my tail, I still have the famous Boxer wiggle and nothing makes me happier than being loved and doted on. So my foster mom says I have to tell you everything I can about me, because I need a special kind of home. I have something called "separation anxiety." Because of this, I need a home where my people are home a lot. I cannot be crated because of it, so I need to be able to be out moving around and playing or sleeping on the couch beside you. But foster mom says there is a cure! The cure is other dogs for me to play with. In my foster home, I have two boxer brothers and a boxer sister. I am scared of nothing with them around. They are my friends, and I love to play with them all day long and cuddle them at naptime. I need to be part of a pack and have that feeling of safety in numbers with them. I have a moderate level of energy and so I play well with everyone. One of my brothers is REALLY hyper and silly and he and I play a lot. My other brother is really mellow and he's the one I like to cuddle with. My sister is the boss around here and I am very good at taking her direction and learned immediately that she runs the show. I never push her buttons. She actually really likes me because I am smart and know how to act in a pack. I bond with people very quickly and love to be held and have my ears scratched. I don't want to leave your side. I will follow you around the house and lie down as close as I can get to you. Sometimes, I want to lie right on top of you! My foster mom says I am a big boy, but she understands my need for affection and lets me be close. I hope my new family will, too. I need to be close to my people. I sleep in the bed with my mom and my brothers and sister. Sometimes, after they all fall asleep, I will get up and go lie in the dog bed. I know I am safe with them around and it gets hot up there with so many dogs! I am good with all people. I don't jump on people, so I can even be around smaller kids. But if you're sitting, I sometimes want to crawl in your lap and due to being a fairly big boy, that might be a lot for smaller humans. However, I am really smart, and take direction very well so after just a few times of telling me that is not okay, I will look for bigger humans to lay on. Overall, I am a loving, affectionate, big boy with a HUGE heart and just need to feel safe and loved. Can you be that for me? Foster mom here! Junior (2) is such a love bug. He looks up at you with these soft brown eyes looking for a little love and attention. He needs a lot of that. He is very dependent on his people and can be easily stressed out by big changes. He requires a mixture of wet food and grain-free kibble to address some issues with being underweight. He is gaining the weight back and will be a fairly good size when he is done. He craves interaction from both dogs and people and will cry to get it. We make sure to have lots of play time and snuggle time to keep him feeling more secure each day. He is learning how to walk well on a leash. He does much better in a pack walk than by himself. 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

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Woodinville, WA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Spike 2 8 year old male 55lbs Large dog friendly Children unknown House Trained No cats Fostered in Albany, OR Hey Everyone! My name is Spike and while they tell me I’m 8 years young, I think they have it wrong! I love walks and runs and am always ready to go when you are. My foster Mom and Dad say that I am the sweetest boy ever! I love relaxing by the fire but I will jump up at the mere hint of a walk! I get along great with my Boxer foster sister and we race and play around the back yard. I guess we can get a bit rambunctious when we play as my foster parents will sometimes give us a time out. I must admit I’m not too sure about larger boy dogs, cats and little dogs. I’ve met them and I’m convinced that they just want me to chase them but my foster parents seem to disagree! Oh well! I haven’t met any little kids yet so I’m not quite sure what they are. I’m not crazy about the crate but will go in if you make me. I have to warn you that I’ll pout and cry in there though. I don’t mind going in there to have my meals with the door open though. I’m a good boy and am housebroken so there really isn’t any need to crate me. I do need to take frequent potty breaks but I know to whine and let you know if I need to go. My foster home has a doggy door so that’s been great! I watched my foster sister use it and taught myself so I can go when I need to. My foster parents tell me I’m a smart boy and they have also been teaching me to use the bell to let them know if I need to go out (when the doggie door is locked for some reason), just in case your home doesn’t have a doggy door and I think I have that down about 95% right now. It would be great if you could give me some refresher lessons once in a while until I ace it. If you let me go potty one last time before bedtime, I will sleep through the night. That’s why I get to sleep in the room with my foster parents! I haven’t been left alone on my own so I’m not sure how I will like that. I love being around people so maybe you can hang out at home all day with me? I haven’t met a human I haven’t liked and they seem to love giving me cuddles and pets, which I can never get enough of anyway. I love being on your lap and can be a little pushy to get on. You just have to give me a gentle push and tell me “Off” and I’ll get the picture. I’m a real polite gentleman and will only get up on the furniture if you let me. A large well-padded comfy doggy bed of my own is a great alternative to the couch though. I can stretch out, curl up or hang my head over the edge when I feel like it. Have I told you how much I love walks? Well, let me tell you again, I LOVE WALKS! I’m learning to be good on the leash though. I get so excited when I get on walks that I may pull a little at first but a gentle tug will let me know I’m being rude. My foster parents sometimes let me walk as far ahead as the leash will go and a firm “heel” will usually bring me back in step with you. I do need a reminder now and again as I get so engrossed in looking around me. I am so curious about the chickens, goats, horses and other animals that I see in my foster neighborhood that it is best you keep me close. Loud noises sometimes startle me but a reassuring word and a pat on my head will settle me right down. My foster parents have been teaching me to stop and wait every time I hear a car about to pass. I guess they don’t want the exercise running after me in case I decide that it may be fun to run after it. A close second is car rides. I love them too and am well behaved when I get to go on one. I’m pretty food motivated just so you know in case you want to teach me new tricks. I’m not a picky eater but my teeth are as old as me so soft food and treats are my favorites! I love my grain free kibble moistened with water and topped with some canned food. I’m not food possessive and have never tried to steal my foster sister’s food. We do have separate corners when we eat though. I also don’t beg for human food. That is just rude! I do love drinking water though! I drink a lot of water through the day and my foster parents limit my water intake in the evenings so I don’t get uncomfortable at night. Everyone tells me what a good and sweet boy I am. I will only bark at strange noises at the door to alert you but I am a gentle boy and am generally quiet. I am pretty convinced that they have my age wrong even though I have a little gray on my muzzle. My foster parents also call me a handsome boy and call me perfect. Foster Parents here: Spike 2 is such a perfect pup! He is such a mellow, loving and gentle boy. He loves being around people and can get a little anxious when you are out of sight for too long, so having someone home all day would be perfect for him. We have never left him alone at home so we are unsure how he will do either crated or loose. He does great with our female Boxer and did great when he met our son’s female Boxer as well. We do not know about male dogs. He is so easy to love and Has been a hit with everyone who has met him. Spike 2 will make a wonderful addition to one lucky family.

      Age: Senior
      Location: Woodinville, WA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Nany Female 9 years old 65-70 lbs. House Trained Dog Selective Good with Older Children No Cats Please! Fostered in Springfield, OR Hi. My name is Nany and I would love to find my forever home. My foster home consists of my mom and a teenage boy. I like the boy but really prefer my mom. I don’t like her to leave but will settle down after awhile. There is also a younger boxer boy here and I let him know right off the bat that I was the boss. He mostly listens. I don’t like it when he starts doing zoomies or playing around with the toys but with just a look he knows to quit so we get along pretty well. It took a bit of slow introductions before him and I understood each other. I'm a bossy gal, so many dogs don't take kindly to that. I will want to meet your canine family member first, just to make sure they can handle my attitude! I really like to cuddle and now that I have been to the vet and got all kinds of wonderful things to help my aging joints, I can hop right up next to you on the couch. That is the best thing ever. Sometimes, she helps me up on the couch but I really prefer to stay on the floor. It’s pretty hard to get up or down and so I am just not comfortable up on the couch. I can also stand on my back legs pretty easily, so make sure to to clear those counters, or you'll find me up there looking for yummies! During the day, foster mom leaves me alone in the house I don’t bother anything so she says it’s ok to have the run of the house. She asked me to go in this crate thing that is in her main room but I didn’t like that at all. She did get me in it for about 2 seconds but I didn’t like that and she must have known cause she let me come back out and hasn’t tried to make me go in there again. First thing every morning foster mom, the young boy boxer and I all go for a walk. I really like to go for a walk. We go at my pace, so it is a relaxing time. Foster mom says it helps keep me limbered up whatever that means. I just know I like to get out and about to see all the sights and smells of the neighborhood we live in. I have to be sure it is safe, you know? Foster Mom here! Nany really is a sweet older lady that has a problem with arthritis, but can take over-the-counter supplements which has improved her mobility ten fold. She really prefers to not be left alone but we all know that isn’t always possible. She will bark for awhile after I leave but she does settle eventually. Nany is ok with some dogs but they have to be submissive and I think because she can’t get out and run she doesn’t like them to be overly active. Nany has been a pleasure to foster and I think you will love her as much as I do. If you are interested in adding her to your family, please go to nwboxerrescue.org/#!adoption-form/c1dw9 and fill out an adoption application. You won't regret it.

      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 am a wiggly, snuggly boxer girl with a lot of spunk and love to give. I like other dogs my size, but I am not a fan of the little dogs, and I want to check out the cats, but mom tells me no, and I move on. I love to eat, and am not a picky eater, but I do like a grain free diet. I can be a little mischievous about garbage, so even though I am not destructive, garbage should be locked or put away around me. I am very curious about what delicious things might be found in there! I love to sleep right next to you in bed and snuggle the night away, and will even snuggle with my other fur-friends if they let me. I am looking for a home that can take me one short walks, play with me (I love the tennis balls), snuggle, and go for car rides (I call shotgun!). From the foster family: Gemma is a fantastic senior girl who does not even realize she is missing a leg. She is a love bug who love to snuggle and hang out, but does well even alone while you are gone (just need to keep the garbage out of reach). She is a little bossy, so she would do well with a submissive dog or dogs. She likes to look at the cats but redirects easily and ignores them after that. She loves car rides, and loves to sit shotgun, whether it is in someone's lap or not. If you want a loving senior girl, who is not very active this is your girl. What's not to love about that beautiful snowy face? Please fill out an application today here: http://www.nwboxerrescue.org/adoption-form

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Maximus 3 years old 103.5 lbs Large Dog Friendly No small dogs No Cats House and crate trained Fostered in Roseburg, Oregon Hello, my name is Maximus and I am so happy to be in a cozy, loving foster home! I would be forever grateful if you wonderful, boxer adoring people could be on the lookout for a family--a forever family of my very own. I am a little bit shy but with the support and love of good people I can shine bright! I have learned so much already. When I first got here I was unsure of so many things--getting in the car, walking up to front door, getting in the tub-- silly things like that. However, now I can do these things and many more that used to be a bit scary for me. I just need my new family to be the leader because that helps me feel secure and more confident every day! If you help me get in the truck I have discovered I really like to go for rides. I lie down and enjoy the view. I don’t mind the bath, it’s the getting in the tub, but like I said I’m working on it. We go for lots of short walks on the property, sometimes just me or sometimes we take the other 3 boxers. Either way I like to see and explore the neighborhood. There is a working rock quarry across the road and the dump trucks would worry me a bit but the more I see them the less they concern me. I have been told I am really good while walking on a leash too! I don’t mind being out in the Oregon rain while we are walking. It is refreshing. Funny thing about me is sometimes I find the tallest grass and burrow my head in it all the way to the ground…good thing I am not allergic to grass! The other boxers I am staying with are all smaller than me. Clearly I need to work on shedding a few pounds even though I swear I am just big boned. My foster mom thinks someone used to feed me people food a lot because I stare at them when it is meal time. I don’t know what she is talking about-- my feet are on the floor, so I am behaving, right?! She has said that I do really well while the meals are being prepared, I like to be close so I lay on the doggie bed by the kitchen. I am also just starting to feel comfortable enough to show interest in toys. The ball is my favorite so far. I don’t really play with the other dogs yet they are ok but not real fond of that young boy boxer and I can’t say exactly why he seems nice enough. Maybe with time he will grow on me. I like to have my paw held while we sit together even if I am on the floor. I know high five, sit, and lay down, working on off and a few other things. I am smart and willing to learn…. especially with treats. Yum yum! If you think we would be a great team, please fill out the adoption form at nwboxerrescue.org/#!adoption-form/c1dw9. I will keep up my learning while you fill out the papers. Ok? Done yet? I am so excited!!! Come get me! I am ready to start the adventures!

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Moose 1.5 Years Old Dog Friendly No Cats DEAF Fostered in Seattle, WA Hello there folks. My name is Moose, and boy howdy do I love my life. I am shacking up with some people called "fosters" and they are helping me learn what life is all about! I'm in foster with some pretty awesome boxer friends. There's another little girl named Suzy. She was an abused boxer from another rescue, and she hangs out with me. We get along great, even if she is small. Our day is filled with romps and cuddles. I love her so much and really look to her for fun moments and calm, serene cuddles. They tell me I am DEAF, however that does not stop me from being a wiggle butt. They got me this collar that vibrates and when it vibrates, I look for my "fosters". They usually give me hand signals so that I know what they want from me. I am so happy they have learned my signals so I can show them how I can sit, lay, and come. They won't let me sleep on the bed with them, yet. The other three dogs, cats and the two "humans" take up most of the room. I sleep in a crate next to Suzy and we play games when they are asleep. She keeps me company and I really like that. Let's go for a ride! I love car rides. Car rides mean new smells and new adventures. I love to meet other people as well and they always think I'm so adorable. But hello, have you seen my face? It's pretty irresistible. I really like having other dogs around to play with and to help me keep out of trouble. They help me learn the right way of doing things, and they also help me when the "fosters" call us in for dinner. When they all run off, I follow them and we get treats, dinner, breakfast and all sorts of good stuff. I hope to find a home with a couple of other dogs because I like being in a pack! That is all for now! Please go to nwboxerrescue.org/#!adoption-form/c1dw9 and come meet me. I can't wait to finally have my very own home! 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

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Woodinville, WA
      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.

      Location: Woodinville, WA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Shady 7 years old 77 lbs No small children Good with Submissive Large Dogs Fostered in Seattle, WA I’m Shady and I love people. Short, Tall, I love them all! I will give you kisses until you tell me to stop. I just want to show you how much I adore you. I want so badly to be connected to someone who can be my forever family and not have to be worried if I'm going to lose my home. Although I love being a beloved indoor member of the family, I do like to hang outdoors periodically too. I could just lay back and sun myself for a few hours and I'd be totally happy. I'm just trying to work on my tan. While we spend time outside together, let's go on a few walks. I walk nicely on a leash and so our walks will be relaxing and peaceful. I know how important that is to you after a long day. Don't want to go on a walk? Let's just play! I love to play and can run around and chase you for quite some time. I'd also like for us to have some toys to play with. It will help keep me busy and entertained. On a hot and sunny day, I like to romp around in a kiddie pool or play with the hose. It cools me down and boy, it is a blast! Although I love people, I don't have very good body awareness and forget my strength sometimes so smaller children aren't a great idea. As for crate training and housetraining.... Well, I'll give you a bit of resistance before I go into the crate but once in there, I accept defeat and behave myself. I am housetrained for the most part, but I forget to tell you I need to go sometimes. As long as you let me out every 4 hours and keep me on a schedule, I won't have accidents. I just have to be reminded. I'm ready to find that family I can count on to help me excel and that I can depend on to keep me for the rest of my life. If you are going to be that exceptional family, go to http://www.nwboxerrescue.org/#!adoption-form/c1dw9 and get the ball rolling!
