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 am cool with the weather, still adjusting to the concept of getting to know fur kids. I am not much of a risk taker, seriously other dogs can kind of scare me, but my super cool foster pops is helping me with that part. I could use a skilled, consistent leader that can be my best friend. I know me, and I am a happier and more relaxed pup when I have a human that knows how to take the lead. I can repay you with friendship, loyalty and the very best snuggles! If you help me with proper introductions, I can be friends with the right pup; I know this because me and my foster brother (a laid-back boxer) are good buddies! I’d be happy to find another friend like him. Right now I have a nice fenced yard where I can do off-leash zoomies and it’s so much fun! I also like going for walks in the neighborhood and sniffing everything. I don’t mind occasionally spending time in my crate, but for the most part I’ll be a good boy around the house when you’re not there. SInce we are friends now, I must say, I do love humans, so if you like lots of love, I am the guy for you. Everyone that visits will be greeted with wags and kisses. Please help me find the perfect home with a nice good leader who will help me trust and relax, I will be the best doggie, cross my heart and a for sure wiggle bum on that!

Ransom 5 yo Male Brindle 58 pounds Strong Leader Required Kid Friendly Needs Dominant Female Companion Dog Crate Trained fostered in Salem, OR Hi my name is Ransom! I'm a fun loving five year old brindle boxer boy. My journey to my furever home has finally begun. If you'll just give me a chance I promise all the love in my heart, and I have enough there for you and the whole family. I have never met a human yet I didn't like. I am a very sweet boy who loves to cuddle and give kisses. I have not had much training with manners and basic discipline. I'm learning to walk on a leash and I try my best but I'm easily distracted. Foster dad says it's ok for now cuz I'm attentive and I really want to please my humans! So if you'll just be the pack leader I need and promise to give me some time, firm guidance and someday I'll be the best behaved boxer in boxer town. I'm learning how to be an inside fur brother and man I just love it. I love rough housing with my foster sis and then it's snuggle time! I just found out about squeaky toys and they are amazing! Foster dad says I will be adopted to a furever home soon. I have my paws crossed that it will be your home! Ransom likes to be in charge, yet gets lonely without a companion. He will do best with a companion fur friend who will keep him in the back seat and a pack leader who will maintain balance and order. Ransom wants to relax, yet hasn't found that groove yet.

Spartan 3 yo male Fawn 60 pounds Best as only Dog Dog Savvy Children over 13 No Cats Does not crate, Leash Trained Fostered in Portland, OR Hello lovely people, let me introduce my handsome self to you, my name is Spartan and a I am great. Prior to coming into rescue I lived my life on a chain in someones backyard. I didn't have a lot of human contact or dog socialization. The good people at NWBR sent me for professional training and all they kept saying was what a good boy that I am. I know many commands and listen really well. I love my people and just want to be near them wherever they are. Due to my lack of proper dog socialization I do need to be an only dog. But don't let that deter you from considering me for your home. I'm fine walking on leash and will walk right past another dog, I just do not like it when a dog runs up to me and gets into my face, and I do not know how to play with dogs, so no dog parks for me. Spartan is a very sweet and well behaved dog, that is looking for a calm and centered owner that has experience with the Boxer breed. Someone willing to guide him and follow through on his training in order to help Spartan be the best dog that he can be. A firm but loving owner would be just perfect for this handsome boy.
