Hello, my name is Maximus and I am so happy to be in a cozy, loving foster home! I would be forever grateful if you wonderful, boxer adoring people could be on the lookout for a family--a forever family of my very own. I am a little bit shy but with the support and love of good people I can shine bright! I have learned so much already.

When I first got here I was unsure of so many things--getting in the car, walking up to front door, getting in the tub-- silly things like that. However, now I can do these things and many more that used to be a bit scary for me. I just need my new family to be the leader because that helps me feel secure and more confident every day! If you help me get in the truck I have discovered I really like to go for rides. I lie down and enjoy the view. I don’t mind the bath, it’s the getting in the tub, but like I said I’m working on it. We go for lots of short walks on the property, sometimes just me or sometimes we take the other 3 boxers. Either way I like to see and explore the neighborhood. There is a working rock quarry across the road and the dump trucks would worry me a bit but the more I see them the less they concern me. I have been told I am really good while walking on a leash too! I don’t mind being out in the Oregon rain while we are walking. It is refreshing. Funny thing about me is sometimes I find the tallest grass and burrow my head in it all the way to the ground…good thing I am not allergic to grass!

The other boxers I am staying with are all smaller than me. Clearly I need to work on shedding a few pounds even though I swear I am just big boned. My foster mom thinks someone used to feed me people food a lot because I stare at them when it is meal time. I don’t know what she is talking about-- my feet are on the floor, so I am behaving, right?! She has said that I do really well while the meals are being prepared, I like to be close so I lay on the doggie bed by the kitchen. I am also just starting to feel comfortable enough to show interest in toys. The ball is my favorite so far. I don’t really play with the other dogs yet they are ok but not real fond of that young boy boxer and I can’t say exactly why he seems nice enough. Maybe with time he will grow on me. I like to have my paw held while we sit together even if I am on the floor. I know high five, sit, and lay down, working on off and a few other things. I am smart and willing to learn…. especially with treats. Yum yum!

If you think we would be a great team, please fill out the adoption form at!adoption-form/c1dw9. I will keep up my learning while you fill out the papers. Ok? Done yet? I am so excited!!! Come get me! I am ready to start the adventures!

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.
