Serena’s foster mom here, Serena is the most endearing lil’ Boxer I have ever encountered. We first fostered her six months ago and fell in love, so when she needed to come back into rescue, we were glad to welcome her back and within two hours she just slipped back into our household routine.
If she could make it happen, she would subsist on belly rubs alone. She welcomes your touch and gladly snuggles in for a cuddle whenever you are ready. She’ll shake your hand or give you a high five and when you’ve forgotten to give her a belly rub she’ll gently tap your arm as a reminder. She greets you with wiggles and smiles and lights up each and every time you use her name or speak to her.
Shockingly, this pint-sized girl fits in with all three Boxers in our pack and they are all huge and ill mannered in comparison. She has had a calming effect on each of them.
Why was such an ideal pup returned to the rescue you ask. Her incontinence is not easily managed with meds and she requires diapers, which she rocks BTW, and this has earned her the nick name Ms Piddle Pants. She does not soak her diaper. On the contrary, if you are using a liner in the diaper, she’ll leave a few little spots from time-to-time. As long as you’ve been diligent in keeping her medication schedule, her leakage is minimal.
We don’t know what physical trauma may have caused her crooked lil’ jaw, small dent in her brow or arthritis in her left leg, but we suspect it occurred in her youth.
As a dog owner for over 40 yrs, I cannot image a quality home she would not fit within. She is wonderfully behaved (leaps and bounds above our dogs). She does as you ask (come, go, sit, shake, high-five, crate). She is very food motivated she loves to eat, so if you want her to do something she doesn’t know just offer her a treat.

Jo C Boxer here. My new foster mom wants me to tell you a little bit about myself. I think of myself as a sporty girl ‘cause I get to wear a different sports jersey everyday. I’m told I was a fine athlete once, but now I am retired (I think she is wrong but it sounds good). Mom thinks, I would do well on ”dancing with the stars” because of the extreme wiggle dancing I do. When I break dance, mom says I flail my legs around and shimmy while on my back like an upside down bug trying to right itself. I look darn cute and I am also soothing my itches.
Mom says I am “healing” and rubs coconut oil on my back. I have scarce fur and 12 bumps with one that is larger and more delicate. She says I have to be careful with the big one so it does not get yucky. I listen well, so all is good. I have one bad eye, probably an old sports injury, but mom calls it a cataract—I thought that was a car?
Did someone say car ride? I like car rides! I walk great on a leash and get in the car all by myself. I share the back seat with my foster brother. We take fun walks but not too far ‘cause my back legs get tired. Then we take naps on our ortho pads by the fireplace. BTW, he and I also have our own crate condos overlooking a 55 inch window where cartoons characters play all day long. When mom leaves the house we relax there until she gets home.
I love my delicious grain-free dinners with special sprinkles called supplements on it. Mom says, I eat like a champ and have normal bowl movements (embarrassing). I know how to let her know when it is time to go potty. She says it is ‘cause I am so darn smart. She also claims, I adapt well and hardly bark. Sometimes I sneak a bark in when my brother starts it of course.
I hear, I am beautiful—especially so in the inside where it really counts. Oh, I almost forgot. I have really good hearing and heard my mom talking about me the other day. She mentioned some other health issues but that they do not slow me down. So, I am not going to worry about those.
I also heard some other gushy stuff. My foster mom said:
“Jo C has danced her way into my heart with her extreme wiggles and sweet eyes that are the window into her beautiful heart. Her older exterior is only hiding a gooey joyful and loving center. She is goofy and fun loving and brings out smiles and chuckles from all. To top it all off, she has fine manners and a youthful attitude. Who could ask for more? She is a role model for all because she encompasses all that is right with the world. She is all a dog should or could be and so much more.”

Hi! Bubbles is what they call me but my foster mom says that sounds like a name for a fish so she calls me Haley for short.
I am showing her all kinds of things I know like sit, dowwwwwn, and I’m kinda getting
“off” (of the couch oookayyy. mannnnn-ughh).
I surprised her when she got the harness out to go for a walk—I sat and waited to get buckled in! I’m okay with a crate. Mom feeds me in it. I’ve slept in it for bedtime before but I really like being in bed with Mom best. I sleep sooooo good with my own blanket and pillow! Mom says not everybody likes sharing a bed, but I’m hoping maybe you do?
Car rides and errands are the best! And this thing called “Chillin” mom says, I’m great at! I’ve mastered giving good hugs, too!
Will you be my BFF?!! If you think you’re up to please fill out and application and request me, (Bubbles).

Needs to be an only furchild!
Fostered in Vancouver, WA
Raven amazes us all with her love of life, loyalty, and dedication. Several months ago, instead being the puppy she should have been, she set it all aside, and did the right thing. Rescued from wondering the streets, she landed in foster care, and birthed a beautiful litter of seven!
She briefly landed with what we thought was her furever family. Her need to be an only furchild has led to our search for the RIGHT family and home, where her needs will be met.
This little girl is a tremendous loving pet for the right family. Being so young and having gone though so much chaos in her life she has learned a great deal. Throughout it all she has made it clear that she will not waiver on being YOUR one and only—we think she deserves that right.
We cannot say enough about what a remarkable a job she did by her pups nor how great we believe she her to be! You need to meet her and let her show you herself.

Scrappy felt his name was crappy and not representative of his lovable nature. So, he asked us and our followers to help him find a more fitting name. Boy, was everyone eager to help! Forty name suggestions—all far more fitting than crappy Scrappy. He and the followers narrowed the field down to what everyone felt really embodied his personality, size, and goof ball nature.
Please meet big guy Sully, named after the big blue guy in Disney’s Monsters Inc. This moniker fits well for this eighty pound boy who thinks he’s a lapdog. Boy-o’-boy does he pour on the love and charm. He gives the best big kisses and can look at you with such endearing, big, eyed expressions.
Like his name sake, he has broad shoulders and narrower hips. Sully is also the perfect balance between Boxer and Bulldog. He can be Boxer wrestling and then laze around in the very next breathe with total Bulldog abandon. One moment he’s wiggling across the room, the next he’s sashaying down the hall with that hip rolling Bulldog motion, but with a little extra kick in his giddyup because of an old injury. Sully is also a very talented vocalist, with a full vocabulary of groans, moans, yowls, deep grumbles, whines, snores, and barks.
Sully knows that his visible scars from the past will always be with him; emotionally, he has worked through so many of his scars, which is why we thought he was right when he wanted to shed his old name and his past.
This guy is ready for the right forever family where size doesn’t matter and one who will love him beyond measure. If you are that family, complete an application today, and here is a link to the online form bit.ly/WHBRadopt. Check out Sully’s video too https://youtu.be/ghvqV22NZoQ.

Hi, my name is Lita and my foster family likes to call me Lita Belle. I like it, it’s a vintage type name, kind of like me. I’m eight and some say that’s vintage but I still have a ton of spunk and I’m really healthy! I love to play chase and wrestle mania with my foster fur brother. We tear it up…. then we nap! These are good times for sure and I really think I would like a fur brother when I move on to my forever home so we can continue our wrestling bouts. My foster mom says I am just here getting some “fine tuning” before my forever family comes for me. Could it be you?? Keep reading and I will tell you the highlights.
First great thing is that I am just a little gal and I fit right in your lap super easy, you probably won’t even get a cramp or anything! Great right? My foster dad picks me up and even holds me sometimes, I like that as well.
Next good thing is that I am very good about telling you when I need to use the facilities. I have recently learned to ring a bell to let you know in case you didn’t see me asking.
Another positive is that I am good in a crate or out, whatever you are comfortable with. Did I mention that I am really easy going??! I do like to sleep with my foster parents but I would be totally fine with a nice cushy bed by you too if that’s what you would prefer.
Here is something else about me: I like to go for small walks and I’m not a puller! I just walk next to my people and breathe in the fresh air. I like all of the people I have met, one of my favorites is my foster sister’s bestie, she thinks I am a star and I would have to say I think she is too!
I don’t seem to love the female dogs I have met and am not sure about the kitty cats either. I would say if I have to pick favorite things they would be running with a stuffy while my fur brother tries to catch me (my legs are little but they can move) and cuddling with kisses at night. I also like looking out the front window but that is negotiable.
Oh darn, I forgot there is one not so great thing about me… Sometimes when the front door is open, I run out. My foster family is working with me on this and last time I came back super-fast—I mean like really fast! Isn’t that great? I am just kind of a nosy gal and want to see what the neighbors are up to but my foster mom says I have to wait for her and we can go together, ugh! I suppose that will work.
In case you think I might be the pup for you, you should know that I am really soft and love belly rubs. Please fill out an adoption application so we can meet soon!

Riley aka RyRy. My new foster dad wants me to tell you a little bit about myself. When I first arrived, I was very shy and a little nervous. Make no mistake! Once I’m comfortable, this is NOT who I am. Rather, I love to be the center of attention and play all the time.
Did someone say car ride? I love car rides! I can get in the truck all by myself—preferring the backseat with my face in the wind. Walks are great and I do pretty well on a leash, only needing the occasional coaching to remind me not to pull. I’m working on understanding my commands, so far I am pretty good at sitting and lying down.
I am crate trained and sometimes I enjoy the privacy. However, I would much rather be roaming around the house with you. When you are home and I’m in the crate, I will cry for a while, because I want to spend time with you. I do really well in the crate when you are actually gone. First off, I’ll cry and then I’ll relax when I know you’re gone by lying down and enjoying my bone.
When you come home, I am super excited to see you and make sure you know it! As soon as you let me out of my crate, I will run circles and give you kisses! It doesn’t matter whether you were gone for 15 minutes for 3 hours you will still get kisses.
I am fully house trained and once we get into our routine, I will let you know when I need to go out. Having you outside with me, so we can play is the best! Outside, I am full of energy and love to run and play fetch.
I love to snuggle up and be as close as possible to my person. Sometimes, other dogs can make nervous, so I do like my personal space. I think I would best enjoy a home where it is me and my people.

HI!!!! Are you here to see me? Awesome! It’s so great to meet you! I absolutely love to meet new people.
Do you like hugs? I love hugs! Can I give you one? PLEEEEEASE????
How about kisses? Can I give you kisses as well? Pretty please?!?
Do you have any fur siblings for me to play with? I love playing and my foster mama has some fur kids that I play with all of the time, I even wear them out, lol. Don’t let my age fool you, I have an extremely high energy level.
I hope you enjoy hikes and trails because I do. I get to smell all kinds of scents and see new things. Mama says I pull really hard when we’re on our walks but I can’t help it, it’s so exciting with all the different sounds and surroundings. So, we are working on it.
Did someone say treats?!? I love treats, can I have one? Mama says that I’m starting to get better with patience when it comes to waiting my turn for a treat. I will even sit handsomely for one, but I still have some work to do.
I’m learning how to act and behave from watching my fur siblings. They taught me how to use the doggie door and how to be respectful when I’ve gotten too carried away while playing. My fursiblings range from just over a year old to over 12 years old and mama is proud of how well I respect them.
Do you have any skin kids as well? Mama has an older teenage boy that I enjoy being around as well. Mama has even had me around some of the neighbors for introductions and she said that other than trying to give them a big hug that I did very well. She hasn’t been able to let me meet any little ones yet but said she’s going to.
I hope that you don’t have any fur kids that meow. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very curious about them. I just don’t like them, I tend to get very aggressive with kitty cats. Mama has to keep us separate so nothing bad happens by accident. I watch them from my crate while they have their free time in the house. Sometimes, I fall asleep watching them. They get their free time from their kitty room a couple times a day and as long as the weather is decent I get to play outside instead.
Gotta go, mama wants to say a few things too. Can’t wait to meet you!
Hello, Mosley’s foster mama here. He really didn’t leave much for me to say lol. Mosley is a real sweetheart and when he finally starts to settle down for a nap or bed time he becomes an even sweeter boy. He’s a great snuggler and would rather sleep with someone than in his crate. He will sleep in it though if needed. Words can’t always describe best and he’s one of those. Mosley hasn’t been in our home for very long and I’m learning more everyday about him, so please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I know he will be excited to meet you.

Hi all my name is Honey. I want to tell you a lil’ bit about myself, as you see I’m looking for just the right family, who I can love the rest of my life. I’m not fond of change and I don’t like moving. So I’m going to be picky, I only want to have to do this once. I had a family that loved me, but they had to move and couldn’t take me with them, so they called WHBR to help find me just the right forever family.
I’m currently in a foster home with two foster sisters (a Pug and a Boxer), two Boxer foster brothers, two cats, and chickens. I get along great with everyone except for the cats and the chickens, as I have a very high prey drive and want to chase them all. My foster mom says, it’s best I’m in a home without cats or chickens, but as for my fur siblings we all get along great and snuggle a plenty. I’m a laid back girl who enjoys my humans’ company—I want to be around them all the time.
If you need to run errands you can leave me home alone, I’m a good girl who will just sleep till you come home. I won’t get into any trouble, I’m too mature for any of that mischief. Did you say walks!? I love walks! I’m so curious about all the different smells and sights, but I won’t pull you around, and I will stay right by your side. I also will not bark at everyone (dogs) I see while we’re walking. Because I’m from sunny California, I do get cold and I love sweaters on our walks. Please don’t look past me because of my age, I’m done with all the puppy stuff and now just want to chill with my family. “No Drama” is my motto.
I’m Honey’s foster mom, all I can say about this girl is she is so sweet and calm. From the minute she came into my home she has gotten along with everyone—humans and dogs alike, but as she mentioned not the cats or chickens. She will give chase anytime she sees them. So, she and I agree that a home without cats or chickens would be best. Honey has been with me almost three weeks now and I’ve only heard her bark once. She isn’t reactive to the neighbor’s barking dog at all. She seems shy sometimes when she asks for permission before getting on furniture or going out the door—like she said “No Drama”. She loves pleasing everyone and she has lots of love to share. So, please don’t pass her by because of her age, she has many years and lots love to give to her new family. You’ll find her a loving and loyal girl. This is just a peek into Honey ll’s story, fill out a application and come meet her and see for yourself.

My name is Brutis and I am told that I am a “silver fox”. My foster family says that means I am a handsome aging pup. I don’t really care what you call me as long as you want to pet me or give me treats. Even though I am a big boy, I really love to cuddle and lay on your lap. Being near people is my happy place. As I get comfortable somewhere, I don’t need as much attention but I always welcome it.
No offense or anything, but I really like to dine without other dogs around. I quickly rejoin the family activities once I am done, I just like to keep my food to myself. I am very gentle taking treats. In fact, I often spit them back out so I can sniff and inspect them before I consume them. Again, no offense. I just like to make sure all treats are worthy of consumption.
I love to go for car rides and am a perfect gentleman in the car. I never try to escape, I don’t try to get on your lap or jump into the front seat. I usually just lay down and nap or watch out the window. I have learned that when you go through something called a drive-thru coffee shop, they sometimes give treats. I really like to go there! I also love to go for walks and explore, but since I am a bit older they don’t have to be really long walks. I am told by the big humans that I am a little plump and could stand to lose a few pounds, but I think there is just more of me to love this way! Anyway, a bit of daily exercise would probably be good for me and it would mean we get to hang out more.
Right now, I am living with 3 other dogs and a whole bunch of farm animals. The latter live outside though. Not sure why? Sometimes I get curious about the cats and other farm animals, but they aren’t that exciting so I would rather hang out with the humans and the other dogs. Two of the dogs are very young and playful. Sometimes I like to run and play with them. Sometimes they bug me and I have to tell them to back-off. Thankfully, they listen most of the time. The other dog is older like me. She’s sick and doesn’t like to play. I just give her space and we don’t interact much.
When the humans aren’t home, I get a little sad. They tried putting me in a crate to keep me safe, but I didn’t feel very safe. I prefer to be free in the house so I can make my rounds and make sure everything is safe and secure while they are gone. I am very well behaved and just wait for the humans to return so I can have more cuddle time.
There are 2 small humans who live with me right now as well. They don’t play with me very much, but they give me hugs and kisses when they get home and before they go to bed at night. I think it’s really sweet. Most of the time they are just busy playing, so I give them their space. I never take their toys either because that would be rude!
I am told that I am a great dog and would be a good fit in most homes. Ideally, I’d love a home where I can get a lot of love. If there are other pets, that’s cool as long as they respect my personal space when I need it. As for small humans, I’m cool with that too as long as they also respect my space. It’s a fair trade since I promise I won’t take their toys. If you think your home would be a good fit, please fill out an application today!
