9 Years Old
Female/Spayed
Skin tumors
Heart murmur
Arthritis Supplements
Fostered in Corvallis, OR

JoC is happier than ever and has a renewed puppy-like zest for life! She’s a total love bug and
snuggle bug. Check-out her video where she’s playing inside with her foster brother — outside it
was 100 degrees so playing in that video wasn’t really in the cards.
For a girl who was always loved, JoC still had a harder than nominal life. It was thought she
could never be spayed or have her tumors removed. In June, JoC received an additional Cardio
work-up to see if she could be a candidate for surgery — the pros and cons were weighed and it
was decided she was healthier than ever and ready.
She was spayed and several mammary gland tumors were removed. She has healed like a
champ and the tumor results came back benign. She feels so much better!
Keeping her on a grain-free diet, coconut oil and supplements has helped her coat come back in,
put some meat on her bones, and helped lesson her itches.
At nine years old it isn’t surprising that JoC’s back legs have a little arthritis—this does affect her
jumping ability as well as pressing hard for long walks. She prefers short jaunts or strolls. JoC’s
arthritis does not slow down her go-go-go personality. JoC does fantastic in new situations and
enjoys meeting new people with friendly ease.
JoC is a happy soul and does well with my five year old male Boxer. She does well with any
human age group, even the elderly. She is gentle and follows direction well. JoC will bark if a
stranger comes to the door, and stops barking when told.
She has no anxiety issues, is crate trained, and has great manners. I happen to think she is the
perfect dog.

Raven

Female
3 Years Old
Boxer Mix (Stafford Terrier maybe)
Dark Chocolate
Beyond Basic Obedience
Crate Trained
Loves People (big and small)
No Other Pets
Fostered in Vancouver, WA

Raven amazes us all with her loyalty, dedication, and love of life. This girl enjoys working and training so much that she is preparing for Canine Good Citizen training. She’ll eventually be training for future obedience competition and she’d like nothing more than for you to join her on this journey. She plays hard, wants a running or jogging partner, and looks forward to her snuggling and loving time with her human. Raven is so full of life and boy-oh-boy does this young girl shine even more when she is doing what you want her to do. Because of a high prey drive for smaller critters and because she learned to fight hard for survival while she was pregnant and living on the streets, Raven needs to be the only pet in her home. That said, she enjoys the company of other dogs immensely, but only in controlled situations, on walks together, on outings, and during training. Raven also attends rescue events, meets and greets people and pups, and represents the rescue very well. For Raven, play can in an instant become too intense. She’ll go into survival mode, which is why she cannot be in a home with another dog. It is unfair to her and unfair to the owner to put her in a situation where she is not safe. She has been with our trainer for nearly a year and is given a very controlled play environment. As a behavioral type trainer and having learned Raven’s needs, our trainer allows her controlled playtime with other low key dogs. We’ve shared a few photos of such play here in her album, so you’ll understand she is not a dog hater, but rather she has threshold needs that need to be met. We cannot say enough about what a remarkable lil’ gal she. Raven is perpetually happy! She adores people big and small, wanting only to please you and love on you so very much. You need to meet her and let her show you herself. Raven is available as a Foster2Adopt or Adoption (click for application)

Is a Woman’s Dog
Shy so calm slow intros best (people and dogs)
Children are too exuberant
Learning her doggy social manners
Loves walks and welcomes leash practice
Fostered in Portland, OR

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 it please fill out and application and request me, (Bubbles). Application link bit.ly/WHBRadopt.

Bentley

11 Years Old
Sliver Fox Flashy Fawn
Crate Trained
House Trained
Great on a Leash
Not Dog or Cat Friendly
Fostered in Happy Valley, OR

Bentley is a lover of every person he’s ever met. He enjoys slow walks, especially at the park and has wonderful leash skills.

Bentley is not a fan of other dogs being close to him. When he’s on a walk he’s perfectly content to ignore the other dogs as long as they keep away.

This good o’boy is quiet and content in a crate, and has fantastic house manners–only needing to be crated if there is another dog in the household.

He loves to follow me around “helping” me do chores. His happiest time of day is our evening snuggle time, I sit with him on his giant dog bed and rub his chest.

He is looking for a caring, loving home to call his own in his golden years.

Leslie

9 years young
Spay Female
Crate Trained
Big and small dog friendly
Big and small human friendly
Fostered in Spokane, WA

What do I have in common with whiskey, jeans, cheese, balsamic vinegar, wine and leather you ask? We all get better with age! I am a straight up Cali girl that found herself wandering the streets alone before someone picked me up and took me to a shelter. Wigglin’ Home Boxer Rescue saw I was there and just couldn’t pass me by. They too, knew I was something special.

I was extremely sick and I went to see a veterinarian to receive much needed medical attention. After a few days I felt more up to traveling all the way north to Washington. My next chapter starts there. I feel better than ever now that I am loved and in a home. These bones like the softer things in life like squishy beds, couches and laps. I curl up in the tightest little ball, but only after I spin like a ballerina ten times.

I am certainly not one to lay around hour after hour like some seniors. I like to go for strolls around the neighborhood. I am fabulous on a leash. It’s almost as if I am not even there. It’s safe to say I am like a shadow. I am a wonderful companion and enjoy hanging out in the yard with you. My hearing is not what it used to be, but I hang out so close to you, you won’t need to speak loudly. I also enjoy breakfast, snacks, lunch, snacks, dinner and desert. I am not one of those salad and water kind of gals. Life’s too short!

My body wears scars on it like tattoos of my past. I am growing hair in some places, but other spots will simple remain bald and only I know why they got there. I am full of life and can perform a “boxer burn” just as good as any youngster. I even have some youngster behaviors such as counter surfing. Best to keep me crated while away from home. I don’t mind, every old lady likes some time to herself.

I am what humans call “easy going” to say the least. I come offering smiles, comfort and companionship. I have a heart of gold and want to give it all to you for the rest of my days. I think it is time to start a new chapter in my book of life. I can’t wait to include you!
Love, Leslie

Bandit II
8 Years Old
Neutered
Dog Friendly
Fostered in Long Beach, WA

Hi everyone, Bandit here! My foster mom says I am a real bandit because I will steal your heart. Want some kisses? I got ‘em! Snuggles? You bet! I love everyone…. doesn’t matter: old, young, two legs, four legs, I am going to love them. My foster home has two kittens whom I love and respect. Are you looking for a bandit like me? I sure hope so because I am looking for you!

Foster mom here, and honestly there really isn’t anything I can add to what Bandit said. So far we have taken Bandit to the beach, to a local blueberry farm, to our favorite distillery (Pilot House Distilling), and overnight in a motel. He lives purely and never wants to be apart from his people so if you are looking for a full time companion… this is your guy!

Incontinence Controlled w/Medicine
Corn Allergy
Fostered in Spokane, WA

Hi! Miss Ella, here! I know we haven’t officially met yet, but I’m ready to be your new best friend. My people are my absolute FAVORITE, so I like to be with them as often as possible! Just hanging out on the couch snuggling, or doing projects around the house, and I’m right there with you. If we’re working outside, you don’t even have to worry about me wandering away; I just love my people so much that I stay right with them! I also love going for car rides whenever possible; feeling the fresh breeze through my fur is the BEST! Crack a window for me & I like to just sit and enjoy the scenery as we cruise along.

In my foster home, I have a fur-brother (who is another Boxer!), a cat, and a little boy. I get along well with all of them. The cat doesn’t interest me much but she’s pretty cute. I get to run zoomies in the yard & “box” my fur-brother, then snuggle the human brother in his bed at night! I also like to follow him around at times. You know, just to make sure he’s doing okay; I guess I’m a bit of a “mother hen” so to speak.

I love playing with toys & I have one frisbee that is my favorite. Not to brag or anything, but my foster dad says I’m pretty good at it. I may be 7 years old, but I’m young at heart. I do like my naps though (I mean, who doesn’t, right??). I have spunk, but I am also pretty chill. The perfect combination! Sometimes in the evening, I have to go into a crate while my foster parents are gone at work. It’s not my favorite place to be, but I will go in without a fight.

Basically, I’m a near-perfect lady! Well, I suppose there is one little thing I should mention, and I’m embarrassed to do so but you should know; I just started taking a medication to help me with the ol’ bladder. It’s so embarrassing because I AM a lady and I normally go outside whenever I need to go potty, but apparently I am having a little bit of a leakage issue. I say “apparently” because I didn’t even notice it; my foster mama did. Thankfully the medication seems to be helping!

So, if you don’t mind giving me my pill in a little treat twice a day, I could be the perfect dog for you! Won’t you fill out an application so we can meet?

Kisses,
Ella

1.5 Years Old
Female
White
Deaf (knows some hand signals)
Dog Friendly
Good with Dog Savvy Cats
Older Children Recommended
Fostered in Renton, WA

Hi, my name is Sunshine, and my foster mom calls me Sunny. I do not hear either name because I’m deaf. I do see how her mouth moves when she smiles at me and how her eyes crinkle when she says my name, so I know she likes me and is talking to me, which makes me wiggly and happy. If you need me to do something, I know some hand signals and am very willing to learn more. I’m very eager and motivated by love and food, more about that in a bit. Being deaf helps me be more observant, so I’ll watch you more closely. Eventually, I’ll be able to understand all your body language and subtle cues. I will often come looking for you if you’ve left the room while I was snoozing, I’ll check your normal places, nosing open doors, and sniffing for your scent until I find where you’ve gone. You’ll find I crave schedules, structure, and repetition. In addition to being an observant watcher, my sense of smell is amazing. I can smell food and crumbs from a mile away. My foster mom calls me a carpet picker, whatever that means. I just know the vacuum isn’t needed when I’m around. I am full of energy and I love to run around the yard and do zoomies and jump over anything in my way. My foster mom says I jump like a rabbit. I love sturdy and indestructible toys, more on that in a bit, and play hard. I have two foster fur brothers that are dogs and two more foster fur brothers that are cats. I’m learning their body language and we are having fun playing. Sometimes, I’ll misunderstand their communication, but we always make up with lots of kisses. Now my fur cat brothers are a different story. I did try to play with them, but they hiss at me even though I am not doing anything. I was recently in a very bad place. I was starved and my tummy hurt even though I was getting food. Eating hurt and made me cranky and I was still starving for more and then I was puking. This was a dire time; I love food, I want food all the time—I want your food, my food, my brothers’ food. I want it all. Foster mom here, Sunshine’s food issues stem from the fact that at some point she actually ate a nice big shiny rock. It likely was in her tummy for weeks. Who knows why. She might have been plying with it as a toy or she might have thought it was food. When WHBR brought her into our care, we learned quickly that something was not right and got her the medical attention she needed. The rock had finally moved from her stomach to her intestinal tract and was blocking all nutrition. As you can understand, the pain and hunger has really shaped her relationship with food. You will need to work hard for her to help her reshape that relationship. This also means protecting her from objects that are small enough to be swallowed—shiny rocks, small toys, even your small belongings. The adoption team will have very specific instructions you’ll need to follow to help keep Sunshine safe and to help her change her relationship with food. As you get to know this beautiful girl, you will be inspired by her love of life, intelligence, depth of love, and inquisitive nature.

Working on Relearning House Manners
Fawn w/ Gray Mask
Fostered in Ephrata, WA

Howdy all, Hashbrown here! You can call me Hashy for short. Sit back, relax, and allow me to share a bit about myself…
Let’s get the most important stuff out of the way first; I LOVE food (hence my name), people, and dogs of all sizes! I also enjoy walking beside you on a leash and am a good listener. My foster mom gave me a special doggie bed and I think sleepovers are just the best; sometimes my black lab buddy and I will snuggle in together. Basic manners are no problem for me – I’m such a gentleman. I guess I am still trying to work on the whole “sharing is caring” bit though. Not to worry, I’m a fast learner! Whenever my foster mom is busy or out of the house, I’ll hang out quietly in my crate. If you’re up for a buddy though, I do love car rides. Speaking of… I would love to ride in the car with you! It’ll be great doing many other things together in my forever home. See you soon!

Well Behaved Senior
Doesn’t Bark
Crate Trained
Basic Obedience
Fostered in Chinook, WA

Foster mom, here! Let me help you learn all about this prince charming… Homer came to Wigglin’ Home from a high kill California shelter. We don’t know much about his past. We can tell you what we have learned about this sweet senior boy over the past month. Homer is a gentleman in every sense of the word. He gets along with all dogs he has met. He is currently living with four Boxers and he fits in like they have always been together. Homer loves to go to the coffee shop. He greets everyone with his wiggle, and he never jumps up. As soon as introductions are over, Homer is more than happy to curl up on the rug and wait to see if there will be more people to meet. He is completely house trained and waits patiently for his treats. He does drool and can make some mighty big bubbles when his favorite treat is offered. He walks well on a leash most of the time. There are the occasions when he thinks there is a wonderful scent he must explore immediately and will pull, but he corrects easily. Homer loves to go for car rides and take long afternoon naps. He loves belly rubs and being close to his humans. He is a perfect fella to watch TV with or read a book. He will rest his head on your lap and you can almost see him smile! The only thing keeping Homer from getting the “perfect” score is he just doesn’t do kitties. Nope, he’s happier to go to a home without a cat. He does great with older respectful children. He seems to love all humans but warms up to men faster than women, but honestly, we are only talking minutes. He is crate trained and will go to his crate for naps. Homer has earned the privilege of being “free” in the house when we are at work. He is never destructive. We usually come home to find him taking a nap. This Sweet Senior boy would make such a great addition to a family looking for a low key, well-mannered gentleman to love forever.

Moisturizing Eye Drops
Fostered in Vancouver, WA

Roxy is a mellow, sweet, lovable lady who enjoys the milder things in life, like sleeping on her dog bed, taking a casual stroll, and sunbathing. She’s the sweetest of girls, one who gets along well with her dog-savvy human foster siblings, and after proper introductions fabulously with her fur foster siblings, too—one boxer, one pug, two chihuahuas. This lady’s got all the basics down—sit, paw, crate, lie down, leave it, and stay. She also responds quickly to redirection as she always wants to please you. Roxy is very well mannered in the home—bonus she is also crate trained, so you never need worry. Roxy does very well with allowing you to administer her moisturizing eye drops. She inherited a genetic disorder, that causes dry eyes, which of course can lead to eye injuries — she cannot put the drops in on her own, so she needs your help.

Roxy is looking for a forever home willing to care for her for the rest of her life.
Won’t you open up your home and your heart for a sweet girl?

Tigger
7 Years Old
Fostered in Yacolt, WA

Hellooooo there! I’m Tigger and I love to go for walks and run around in the yard! I want you to know that I walk like a gentleman on leash, and while I enjoy going for walks, I do not require a lot of exercise.
I am very well mannered. I will not jump on you or your furniture (unless you invite me up for a cuddle). I know basic commands, such as sit, shake, and lay down. I am house trained as well. Some of my favorite hobbies include sleeping on my dog bed, sunbathing and going for car rides!

I love all humans, young and old. My foster mom tells me I am very sweet, and bashful. Honestly, just a big goof ball here. I also get along with my foster fur siblings, in fact, I like all other dogs, big and small. My foster mom thinks I may do best in a home with no cats or chickens though because sometimes I just love a game of chase.
So, in closing, if you are looking for a respectful companion then I’m your guy- calm, cool, and collected!

Male (neutered)
Fawn
Natural Tail
Crate Trained
Fostered in Vancouver, WA

Ali (we call him Ollie) is big, strong, and handsome (stunning)! He is a fantastic yard protector and has great house and crate skills.

Ollie prefers to be an only dog and is not too keen on cats. He walks well on leash and does not require a lot of exercise.
Car rides are a fun little activity for him, which he does well with. He is calm with bathing and grooming and he does not bark a lot.

Ollie loves his humans! He also loves to play with water from a hose, enjoys playing tug, and loves full body massages.

This sweet boy is building great obedience skills and will do a sit and stay whenever you answer the front door. (Nothing makes you feel safer than a well-trained personal security guard at the door! Hehe) He also knows heel, down, and come. Such a well-mannered gentleman, he is!

Big kids are great, but with his size and excitment, smaller children may not be the best fit for him.

Ollie likes “his” people. He is sweet, cuddly, and tolerant of anything from people he trusts and likes. Because he craves all the attention, we think he would do best in a home where he is the only dog. Once you meet him, you will want to give him ALL of your love!

55lbs of Love
Fostered in Vancouver, WA

Foster mom, here! Jax is such a love, and would do great in a home that will slowly introduce him to new things, as he unfortunately wasn’t exposed to much in his previous life. He takes a bit to become comfortable, but once there, he is fine. Jax would do best with a family that is patient and willing to help him build his confidence.

Jax is super sweet and loving once he gets to know you. He can be with other dogs after slow intros. Once he has met the other dog properly, he will happily hang around them.

Jax enjoys a nice walk a couple times a week. He is working on his obedience skills, and shows great potential with a little patience and love. He crates and can be left out during the day without his curiosity getting the best of him.

A family who will continue his training, socialization, and help build his confidence is best for Jax. This sweet boy is ready to shine in his furever home.

Toby
5 Years Old
Neutered
Dog Friendly
Fostered in Portland, OR

My name is Toby and my favorite things are human hugs, walks on the beach and treats. I would love to be a lap dog, but my lady says I’m too big for that. I’m not that big though, so I get extra food right now and plenty of treats.

I love my walks, sometimes they are short, sometimes they are long. I wait patiently to have my leash put on and I don’t pull, however I am curious and easily distracted. I’m understanding “watch me” and I get lots of treats when I do it right.
I stay near my lady when we are home, she works at home a lot, but when she has to leave my crate is a comfortable place and I don’t mind using it. Sometimes I go in it when she is home, but I’m always nearby, “like a shadow”, she says. At night, sometimes I get to sleep on the bed, I’m not that big so I can curl up small and sleep where I’m told, but mostly I sleep in my crate at night.

Other dogs make me a little nervous, my hair can stand up sometimes, but I’m curious and think I want to be closer, but then I’m not sure. I am shy, but I love all humans. I’m gaining some confidence and even learning to do zoomies in the living room.

Toby’s lady, here… Toby is the sweetest love bug, a champion cuddler and hug giver. He is patient. We do not have a strict schedule; our days can vary and he is easy going. With his excellent leash manners, we are working on focus and it’s a little better every day, plus he is learning to play!

Tobi
Female
1.5 years.
Boxer, American Bulldog, Staffordshire Terrier Mix
40 lbs.
Potty Trained, Crate Trained, Good with Dogs
Fostered in Spokane, WA

I was taken in with my five children as a single teenage mother. Thankfully, I was put up in a halfway house where I could raise my babies and go to night school. It felt wonderful to have a bed, prepared meals and in-house babysitting while I took classes to get my G.E.D. After many sleepless nights and lots of homework, I was able to raise my babies so they could stand own their own four feet and get a good start to life. Now, it is time to focus on me. I am a pretty good catch if I may say so? I am potty trained, crate trained and have basic obedience. I am looking for continued comfort and security. I can, at first, be shy around new people, but I warm up fast and then I am quite loving. I adore other dogs especially those who like to let their hair down, run and wrestle. If I could have a playmate I would be especially happy. I am pint sized which makes taking me places and cuddling easy to do. Don’t let my pint size fool ya, I can reach the counters just fine if inspired. I can’t wait to meet you. You will fall in love with the heart on my nose and my golden eyes. Won’t you be my riches in this rags to riches story?
