About Us


Northwest Boxer Rescue is looking for foster homes in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana.  The more foster homes we have, the more Boxers we can save!

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:
The Stjern family founded NWBR in 2011 after rescuing Paris and Bane:  two Boxers several years apart, in desperate need of a loving home.  Scars and torture marks indicated tough histories for these two, but it didn't stop them from accepting love and becoming part of the family.  Since then, NWBR has grown beyond Eastern Washington and now has foster homes in 5 states.  We take in roughly 400 Boxers a year in various states of health, and temperment.  Through supporters like you, we are able to provide medical care and training, while also providing a loving foster home and family for each and every dog.  

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. 

All of the dogs we currently have available for adoption are listed here on Pet Finder!
