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.

Stella 6 yo female 60 lbs Submissive Male Dog Friendly Kid Friendly No Cats Crate & Leash Trained fostered in Maple Valley, WA ______________________________________________________________________ Hello, I'm Stella. I absolutely love people, big people, little people, old or young. I love to snuggle, play chase, have my belly rubbed and give kisses. I was born with an underdeveloped right eye and can not see from that side but it doesn't slow me down at all. I like submissive male dogs around because I like a companion, someone to snuggle, tell me I am pretty. Not a fan of sisterhood of the dog kind. I was surrendered to NW Boxer Rescue when the dynamics of the only home I have ever known changed and they felt I would do better in a new family. I have adjusted well in my foster home and just want to apart of your everyday life and family. I prefer my family to be home more often than not, as I really miss people so much when they are not around.

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Johnny Fawn 8 yo Male 75 lbs June 8 yo Female Light Fawn 55lbs Dog & Kid friendly No Cats Crate & Leash Trained fostered in McKenna, WA Hi I'm Johnny and my partner is June. We are a bonded pair, we think they call us that because we love each other so much. We are never far apart and insist on sleeping close to each other. How would it feel to be used up and tossed out like yesterday's trash? That is what happened to Johnny and June. An 8 year old bonded pair that were used as breeders. Once June couldn't produce puppies to sell for profit. And Johnny had a torn ligament in his knee, that had gone untreated. These two seniors were dumped in a shelter, and not a good one, in Southern California. Other rescues passed on them because of their age and health issues. Due to being breeder dogs, they aren't really sure how to be dogs. So, some paitence, guidance, and structure will be very helpful for these two loving Senior Wiggle Butts. Yes, they are older and a pair, could you be the one to open your heart and home to these two deserving souls. What Johnny and June really need is peace and security. Johnny and June have figured out that they do like having a nice warm, soft bed to rest on. And getting love and attention that is just for them, is the bestest thing of all. They do like to cuddle and snuggle up with their people. Please don't let them feel like they are disposable.

Jaxx 6 yo male White 82 lbs Submissive Dog Friendly Older Kid Dog Savvy Crate and Leash Trained fostered in Forest Grove, OR _____________________________________________________________________ Hi everyone, I am Jaxx. I am tall for my size but don't let that scare you away. I won't jump on you at all even when I am so happy to see you. I love to go for walks and explore my surroundings. In fact if you don't take me for a walk once a day, I will cry! I love to be outside so if you give me my own door and a yard to go investigate, you will make me the happiest dog ever! My foster mom said I am such a good boy, I don't bark at much of anything. I haven't met any cats yet so I am not sure how I feel about them. I love to sit with you on the couch and cuddle. Sometimes I want to sit on your lap too but if you say I can't, I am just as happy to be near you. I have only had one owner before this so it took me a little bit to figure out how to be a dog. I still am not sure what this roll around on the floor and wrestle thing is, although I am happy to follow the lead of my peeps, so I will get it eventually. I love people so I am happy to be patient while we worked on things together. I don't really like my crate but if I had to, I would do it, yet I don't really think I need it.

Sadie 3 years old 110 pounds White w/ Brown patch Loves People Experienced Boxer Owner Must be only dog Crate Trained Fostered in Battleground, WA Hello, my name is Sadie and I want to love you. I am an American Bulldog-Boxer mix and I am 3 years old. I am a big girl in size and in heart! I love to be with my people and can't wait to have a family of my very own. I have been through a lot recently. I had surgery on both my hips for hip dysplasia so unfortunately, I need a home that isn't very active because I will never be a running or hiking partner. My weight needs to be watched very closely because I can't get too heavy, so gentle walks and small meals are my style. I love to snuggle and just hang out. I've been in homes with cats and don't mind them too much. Because of all that has happened recently though, I've been feeling very vulnerable and feel a bit protective over my hips. I would need to be an only dog as I cannot play and get protective about my hid end. I love kids, yet due to my surgeries and size, older children are probably best since I shouldn't be wrestled with or handled roughly. I don't always realize how big, strong I amm so need help keeping to limits. I am crate trained, and well probably best for me to be in it, if you are gone, because I love food and figure if it looks good, smells good, and tastes good, I'll eat it! I enjoy sleeping on a cushy bed with my favorite blanket, it feels good on my behind and hips. I will likely keep your couch warm, and if your bed isn't too high I may be up there too. I am a super girl in the car and love to travel everywhere my people go. I've been told I'm a bit noisy. I like to bark at the doorbell or knocking and even the bells from TV shows. I am also quite the snorer. Trust me, I can saw some logs! My trainer mom has worked very hard with me on manners and I'm eager to keep learning with you, so a willingness to continue “my studies” is a must. I will need to stay on my medication for my hips for the rest of my life and I'm okay with that. I take it like a champ! I have such a big heart with lots of love to give and plenty of kisses too so keep a towel handy! I can't wait to have a forever home to call my own and pray it soon. I look forward to sharing life together!

I am stunning, have the best manners on earth and smart as a whip - what more could you want? I've been to school, knocked the socks off my teacher so she gave me all A's. Yes, I know I'm deaf but you might not know it. I do pay attention to my humans and am a total people pleaser. Some dogs bug me because honestly they are not as smart or beautiful as me. Cats are silly and who in their right mind wouldn't run after something that runs away? So, I'd check off the box, saying no cats. My likes are ALL people and any outdoor activities. You want a snuggle buddy on a cold winter night, that's me. How about a travel pal, pick me for that too. Hiking or long walks along the beach, sign me up. Oh and did you know my fur is soft as silk? Don't be jealous, just embrace it because you'll probably get more friends with me by your side. If you think I might be you're next pal, fill out an application today!

I confess I am a big chick-a-doodle, weenie, ninny, all of those... gulp... I frighten myself sometimes.
