About Us


After a short time of doing this through networking and word of mouth, we felt that in order for us to find the perfect homes for this breed we needed to extend ourselves to every means possible.  So here we are! Please "like" us on facebook to view more pictures of the dogs.


Please go to our website: www.nwboxerrescue.org for more information!

Adopting A Friend

Adopting a friend is something we take very serious as we feel it is important to find that perfect and forever home.  When we receive an application it is not just a piece of paperwork, but is some insight into your home and pet lifestyle.  We take them very seriously as we want adopters to know that we love these guys and want them to go to a home with as much love, if not more than we show them. 

Applications can be obtained by emailing us at nwboxerrescue@hotmail.com or downloading one from our website www.nwboxerrescue.org

After applications are submitted and we feel we have a dog that suits your wants and needs, we will do a follow up phone interview and home inspection.  This is again to ensure that potential adopters have a home set up for a forever boxer.

After that, we arrange a play date for you and the boxer to see how the both of you interact.  If that goes well, you are more than welcome to take your new boxerkid home.


Puppies- 1 years old: $300-$500

2 years - 6 years: $200-300

6.5 years+: We feel that a boxer that is needing a forever home deserves it and we only ask for a donation for a dog that is a "senior" dog.  We want a Boxer that is over the hill to have a perfect home and forever home as well so the procedures above will still be followed, but to ensure that we will incur the adoptive fees for the elder Boxer.

Who We Are

Our Backstory:
Heather and I rescued our first Boxer named Paris. She was rescued from the Yakima Humane Society. She was about 6 years old, reverse brindle, female who had been bred so poorly and given such poor care that she had hip dysplasia early. She was our "mama paris". About 2 months later we decided that while we loved Paris, we wanted to get her a playmate for her. We adopted Bane. Bane quickly became my best friend and everything I ever dreamed in a dog. He was my cuddle buddy, pillow, foot warmer, and my go everywhere pal. He too was rescued from the Yakima Humane Society. When rescued, he had visible battery clamp marks on his ears, as he was shocked to be a sparring dog for pit bulls.

Paris left us about 2 years ago due to cancer and Bane took the long nap March 28th. The way we look at every boxer is through the same eyes as we loved these two boxerkids. Ever since then we have been active in promoting knowledge of this breed and the rescue efforts out there for them. Since the passing of these two we have welcomed 3 year old Leia, a boxer kid whom when adopted by us we thought she was 6 months as she only weighed 35 lbs. Turns out she was fully grown and just abused to the point of where her body spent all of its energy on preparing to run not grow into a big boxer girl. It took Leia a year to actually allow me to get near her. We also got Dozer a gorgeous Brindle male who is 5. Akimbo, from the Tri-Cities and Wandi, our foster failure, two young flashy males who can play for hours.

We have always thought about running our own rescue as there was soooo many boxers that needed homes, but we never felt that we could do it on our own. We have officially taken the plunge. We are now a strong group of boxer families across Washington state and who want nothing more than to see a wiggle butt in a warm house, or a snoring dog who was kept in shelter now on the lap of a loving family member. We are not backed financially by anything except for the donations done by canine lovers and the loving homes that adopt these gorgeous dogs. Please share the word of us as we try to do nothing more than love on boxers that so direly deserve it.

Thanks from both of us.


Surrendering a dog:

If you or someone you know need help re-homing their boxer, that's what we are here for. We ensure that your boxer will only go to a qualified home. We make it easier on you to let go and give you confidence that the dog will be well cared for after you say goodbye.

We respect your decision to let go and we do not look down on you but rather make it an easier more comfortable process for both you and your beloved pet! We understand that sometimes you just don't have any other choice than to let go of your animal. Using our help will make sure the dog is safely re-homed and re-homed to a family that is a good fit.

Every prospective home is screened, has a home inspection (prior and post adoption), and has to meet certain criteria. The new home also signs a contract that if any reason it doesn't seem to work out the dog has to be returned to us, not given away. Let us know if we can help in any way..

Come Visit Us

While we do not have a shelter, we do try as best we can to meet you in a middle spot to have you come meet a potential boxer.  If you are looking for a female and all we have is male's, please contact me as we do try our best to network all over the west coast for the needs of this lovable breed.
