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.

I’m Wanda and this is my buddy King. Apparently, King is a popular name for Boxer boys because he’s officially known as King 2017-2, I prefer to say 2.0 yet I was over ruled. We are a bonded pair; which means our future home is with a forever family together. Since I am the oldest, 11 years young, I get to tell people our preferences. Age before beauty. I am the fawn pup in the pictures and King, he is 8 years young is the brindle pup in the pictures. We love people... not like that smother you, bouncy, in your face type stuff that young pups do. We do the mature thing, stroll next to you, nuzzle hands, smile, wiggle, you know look really cute and sweet. We have each other, so we don't need other fur brothers or sisters in our forever home, but we will tolerate another submissive male. We sleep together, play together, groom each other, and quietly investigate everything as pals. Our perfect home would be with a family that is home more often than not someone to give us lots of love. Do you think that might be you?

I am pretty laid back, like to hang out with the lady dogs. Since I am really all about relaxation and love, I am not interested in having any fur brothers or fur cats in my space, spoiling my Chi. I am very well mannered and have medium energy with a frisky biscuit or zoomie thrown in every now and then. I don't need to jog in order to keep my handsome body in shape, that's me, just a low maintenance kind of guy. My favorite thing is to spend time close by my people and give kisses. I walk beautifully on a leash, and if you give me a nice intro to a fur sister, oh snap, I am in my groove like my name is King Cool! I am looking for a home with kids, simply because I love to get and give wiggles. My enthusiasm for the family unit is strong!

Roxy 2017-2 9 year old female 65 pounds Kid friendly Submissive male dogs ok Crate and leash trained Fostered in Springfield, Oregon Hi, my name is Roxy and I came to NWBR after spending my entire life with one family. With a clean bill of health I am looking to find my forever family to spend the rest of my days with. My perfect home would be single-level because I tend to stumble on steep stairs. I live with three other boxers right now, but it took some time to understand the pack. I still get a little grumpy when someone gets in my face or hogs Foster Mom's attention. But, I am easily corrected. Boy do I like attention and to do tricks for treats! You know what they say about needing a strong leader and good directions, I will sheepishly admit that is what I really need and like. Give me your leadership to follow and I will want for nothing more than endless scratches and to give you love. A stay-at-home person that wants me to be their one and only would be okay, yet I might do better with a strong leader and a submissive fur brother to cuddle. Mind you I may act like I want to rule the roost, yet underneath, I need a pack leader to relax and be in my comfort zone. My Foster Mom says that my eyes indicate that I have a sweet soul. If you want a snuggle buddy, I am the one for you- are you the one for me?

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 am a deaf female that absolutely loves to be around people. Since my world has no sounds I do so much better if my humans are within sight. I can be crated for short times but really prefer to be with people. I really don't like to share my humans with other animals, being deaf I just don't understand the whole animal communication thing. I have a great foster she is also a trainer and she is teaching me all kinds of cool things. Like, sit, down, a touch cue to get my attention when I'm close to you, I'm learning a marker system for communication and we're working on a long distance recall using the vibration mode on an electric collar but, because I'm not sensitive to touch, I ignore it about 50% of the time so I'm still working on that one. We're also working on a "back up" cue, a "wait" cue and an "ok" cue. My forever home needs to be committed to continued training so we can work on our communication skills together. Are you willing to work on getting to know me? I will give you lots of love and kisses if you are.

      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 an all-around 'typical' Boxer: playful, happy, affectionate, funny, and sweet. I grew up and spent all of my life with one family who took great care of me. I know all of my commands, and I go into a crate without much fuss. I could use some help learning how to heel though, but that's pretty much it! Because of my age, I am more mellow than younger dogs, but don't let my age fool you! I am just as physically agile, and I get just as excited for walks as a dog half my age.

Did I mention that snuggling is my favorite thing of all? Well, it is! I crate and would prefer someone gone no more than 4-6 hrs a day.

I sit and wait patiently for my food and for you to open the door. I love to ride in the car and go on walks. I get very excited around other dogs, and I may bark when people walk by the house, but I love treats so I should be easy to train. I get too excited and jump when people come to see me so I would do best with older children. My foster family calls me a big puppy! I would fit well in a family that stays active and goes on lots of adventures. I will make a perfect companion for someone out there!
