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

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.

9 Months Old
Fine with Older Children
Fostered in Springfield, OR
Hi there! I am Lily and I am loving my new chance at life. You see, when I came into the shelter, I was very ill. Some good people there took me in, nursed me back to health and then WHBR swooped me up and before I knew it, I was living with my foster family. When I first arrived, I was skinny, scared and clumsy (my illness had caused impaired balance) but that is all in the past. It only took a few days for me to feel comfortable in my new surroundings. I was put on a high calorie food and slowly but surely, I am looking less bony and my muscle tone is improving. Also, I am able to run and play with the other dogs here without falling!
During the day, all the people here leave and go off to work and school. It takes a little coercion, but once I’m in my crate I am content to hang out, snuggled in my nice soft blankets until they return. Mom says it’s important for me to be in my crate because sometimes my manners aren’t so good, and I don’t wait to potty outside and on occasion I have eaten a slipper or two. I will let you know when I am ready to come out though, and I can be pretty loud about that. When it’s time to relax I love to snuggle the people here. I just rest my head in their lap and they give me the best rubs. It takes me a little bit to warm up but once I get to know you I really warm up! I’m a big, fun loving puppy and can’t wait to meet my Furever Family, plant some roots where I can really relax and be home.
Foster mom here, and I just want to reiterate what a beautiful, loving soul Lily has. I often call her “Lilypad” or “Lizard” because she has this funny way of dropping to her tummy and just staying there when she isn’t getting her way or when she is unsure of something. She truly is a puppy and we are training her as it is day one even though she is huge and 9 months old. We are working on housebreaking, sit, and wait. Being young, she gets excited quickly and forgets her size which is why she should be in a family with older children. She loves to run and she plays hard with the other corsi and the boxer at our home. She will definitely need a yard to run off all that energy. Leash skills is another thing we are working hard on, but with patience and training she will get there. She is a smart girl that is easily motivated by both treats and praise. She will need a family that is willing to continue her training and socialization. If you are looking for a big snuggly puddle of love then Lily will be perfect for you!

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.

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!

Rico 3 Years Old 50 lb House & Crate Trained Older Kids Brindle, natural ears, docked tails Prefers to be only pet Fostered in Vancouver, WA Rico is a sweet and loyal boy. He is tolerant of all kinds of attention and handling. He takes a while to warm up to new people, and his natural reaction is barking due to fear. Once he has met you though, he falls in love! This dog is a very chill dude who is happy to hang around the house and yard. He loves to play with his toys but hasn’t yet mastered the art of fetch. He also enjoys car rides. If the car is parked and he is inside, Rico will bark if someone approaches the vehicle. He does the same thing in the kennel if you get too close. He takes his job as protecting his territory seriously. He can be left loose in the house when you are not at home and is non-destructive. He crates well, and is house trained. He is fine with baths, but nail trims cause him to be fearful. As for other furry creatures, Rico could live with a dog savvy cat as long as the intros are very slow. When new people come to your home, he will need to be crated and given the chance to warm up slowly. Rico is searching for a quiet, stable, and calm home with a leader that is willing to take him to positive reinforcement training classes. Because he is fearful of new things, Rico will need his person to be patient while allowing him to experience new things and show him that you have his back no matter what and that he is safe and loved Adoption application

Well Behaved Senior
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.

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!

Nakita is a very laid-back and loving girl. She wants nothing more than to hang out with her humans, preferably indoors and not hiking all over the Northwest. She loves men and women alike, and prefers older kids since she has never been around the little ones. Nakita is a polite dog and has good house manners. She is non-destructive and is both crate and house trained. She also knows basic obedience and does not jump up on people. She pulls on her leash, but will stop with correction. She has basic obedience skills and minds her manners in the house. She is used to a fenced yard and is crate and house trained. She is not destructive and does not chew or destroy things. She pulls slightly on leash but corrects easily. Jumping on people is not a problem, she does not do that. Baths are not her favorite thing but she will tolerate them Nakita prefers to be given all of the attention from her humans and because of that, she should be the only dog in the home. Nakita’s perfect family would be one that is not very active and likes to just hang out. She needs a patient and strong leader who will continue her quest to be a wonderful companion.
