Hello, My name is Sprocket and I am told that I am a very sweet loving boy! I am one of those guys that likes to have a fur sister around to make me feel safe and comfortable...oh! And to run zoomies with! New or unknown sounds, people, things and animals make me a little nervous, but with a strong and confident leader I become very curious and want to know what everything is.

I have come a very long way with the constant guidance and encouragement from my Foster Mom. I was pretty anxious when I first arrived at NWBR and I had to be introduced slowly to my fur sister. But once I knew I was safe, she became my bestest bud and I do so much better in her company than I do on my own. I really love my foster sister, she really helps me feel much more confident.

Now, it did take about a week for me to get used to my new home and Foster Family. Foster Mom did a lot of crate and rotate with the 2 of us, to make sure everyone was feeling safe. Then when I got to meet my foster sister with no barriers between us, I was very excited but no longer afraid. Within minutes we were running around the yard and having a blast. Running zoomies is one of our most favorite things to do.

I am told that with my foster sister I have no problems sharing anything and everything. Many times throughout each day we will share and swap toys, bully sticks, water bowls even food dishes. I don't even mind when my Foster Mom puts her hands in my food bowl while I'm eating or even in my mouth while I'm trying to eat or have a treat. I even have great manners on quietly, patiently waiting to get fed. I now know that I have to be sitting and calm out of the kitchen, while foster mom prepares my food. Then I even wait until my foster sister is released to eat her food and then I get released to eat my food. I am learning that I don't have to inhale my food because there will always be more later! I even have some neat things I have learned like I do know how to sit, lay down, shake, stay, enough, don't touch, leave it, wait, come and I'm sure there's more that I know or am learning.

I am housetrained and crate trained (though you might find me out of the crate when you get home if it's not secure). But I don't make a big mess if I escape. You'll probably want to make sure that garbage and food are put away though...because I am a dog! And I sure do love things that smell like they should be eaten! I am working on my leash training and doing pretty well, so we can go on lots of walks and excursions to help build my confidence, too.
 I am very much wanting to please and make sure I am doing what it is you want me to do. I am told that I am a good boy and a fast learner...once I build confidence, I am a pleasure to have around and will be your best friend forever. I sure hope you'll consider me and fill out an adoption application over at:!adoption-form/c1dw9

About Northwest Boxer Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Northwest Boxer Rescue (NWBR) believes that every boxer deserves a chance to live a happy life in a loving home. Abandoned or homeless Boxers will always find shelter, medical care, and ultimately a new home through the efforts of NWBR. By working with committed volunteers and local veterinarians we are able to rescue boxers every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them perfect loving forever homes. Working in conjunction with city and county groups, NWBR strives to educate the public and help end animal overpopulation and needless suffering. The commitment to share the love of Boxers is never ending.

We never discriminate on the basis of health or age. Our animals are evaluated, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and receive any necessary medical treatment before they are placed in carefully screened homes.
