Story
Dog Name: Fossi (Foster when we're being stern, Foss-Foss when we're talking for him, Fossman when he's being a goof) Age: Approx 3-4 years old Gender: Male Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Boxer  Good with dogs? Yes, very! see notes Good with cats? No.  Good with kids? Unknown, not recommended What is Fossi's rescue story? The adorable Fossi was saved from the euthanasia list in New Mexico in April 2023 and arrived in WA at the end of September 2023. In June of 2024, Fossi had a bullet removed from his neck. The surgeon chose to leave the second bullet in his jaw area, since his body is not rejecting it. His future adopters will understand that his challenges are a result of humans failing him. Temperment/Personality: He is extremely curious, smart, and a total goofball. He is a wonderful companion and wants to be a part of everything you do...whether that's running, cooking, going on errands in the car (he is the cutest sight in your sideview mirror), or cuddling and napping. While he is a combination of two very active breeds, he can read the room and knows when it's time to hang out! Fossi is AMAZING with other doggoes. The owner of the boarding facility he stays at loves that he is "her go-to dog who can be introduced to and play with any of the other dogs!" He would really love another pup in his forever home to show him the ropes. What does Fossi's ideal home look like? Fossi deserves a patient forever family or person who is comfortable taking people introductions slowly. While his foster dad immediately gained his trust, some men are scary to Fossi upon first meeting. If you are willing to give him the time he deserves to learn to trust you, you will be rewarded with the most loving, loyal best friend. He has great leash manners and LOVES going for walks and runs. His best life is with someone who works from home, is home often and can provide him with lots of mental and physical stimulation, or someone who is willing to take him on all their travels! He would thrive with one or more dog siblings. Fossi is currently working with his fosters and Zoom Room Tacoma on this and desensitizing him to dogs who are on-leash. Kids are currently unknown and not recommended. Apply to meet this silly, resilient, affectionate ACD mix. Adoption fee $350 Fossi's adoption fee will come with two paid training session to get him and his new family off on the best start! www.northwestwagrescue.org ##1695137##

Story
Trinks was saved from an overcrowded high kill shelter in Roswell, NM. She is approx 1 year 2 months old.  Dog Name: Trinks Good with dogs? Will need slow very careful introductions Good with kids? Unknown  Good with cats? Yes, doesn’t seem to pay much attention to my cat unless my cat gets her attention and tries to play with her.  Has experience on a leash? No, we’re working on leash training but she pulls a lot. Carrying high value treats with us to help with training has been working out well but she still cares more about bunnies than the treats. We take walks in the morning, lunch time if not too hot and in the evening.  Potty trained? Yes  Crate trained? Yes, Trinks is very comfortable in her crate and it’s her safe space. She doesn’t mind one bit hanging out in her crate while we are gone.  Where does the dog stay when it is home alone? Crate Where does the dog sleep? Crate  What does the dog eat? She is currently eating open nature turkey formula (with grains). She loves freeze dried beef liver and freeze dried duck treats the most.  Temperament/Personality: she is extremely energetic and loves to carry toys around the house. She loves people and has been super friendly with everyone she has met and immediately wants to be pet by them.  What does the dog's ideal home look like? Ideally she will live in a house with a huge yard so she can run non stop. She does laps like crazy in our yard and has never ending energy. We have been going on three walks a day and she still has enough energy to run in the backyard afterwards. She will need very active owners. She is not a lazy couch potato type of dog. From what I’ve seen of her interacting with other dogs, she would probably do best in a home with no other dogs or maybe a dog her size or smaller. She seems to be very intimidated by bigger dogs.  What are the dog's strengths? Loves to play and very good with people.  What is the dog still working on? What can they improve? She has extremely high prey drive, training on leash walking has been difficult because she constantly wants to chase birds, rabbits, and squirrels. She is also selectively dog reactive, when we’re out walking some dogs she starts growling at and others she ignores. She seems to be most reactive towards dogs bigger than her.  If your foster were a celebrity, who would they be? Some crazy Diva type   If your foster dog were on a dating site, what would their profile say?  I love outdoor adventures and wish I could spend all day walking running or hiking around. I need activities to put my mind to work and have a hard time staying still for too long.  Beach or Mountains? Mountains, Trinks would make a great hiking companion. She loves sniffing trees and plants and would probably do great on trails once she is better behaved on a leash.  Squeaky/Bouncy/Chewy, what do they look for in a toy? She loves to rip up toys but we noticed she swallows some of the pieces so we have been giving her Kongs and she loves chewing on those and getting treats out of them.  Complete this sentence “My foster wishes they had a friend with whom they could share many outdoor adventures.” What’s your foster’s favorite dessert? Everything! Trinks has not met a treat she did not like. She is extremely food motivated. Adoption $500 www.northwestwagrescue.org ##2065634##

Story
Meet Sport, the handsome and energetic cattle dog who's always ready for an adventure and eager to be by your side as much as possible. Sport is approximately five years old and weighs 40lbs. A recent DNA test has discovered him to be 100% Australian Cattle Dog! Sport loves playing ball and even knows how to toss it back to you. He thrives with a predictable daily routine and, when he's not engaged in activities, enjoys lounging on his comfy bed. Sport has been making great progress on his reactivity to dogs and men. He's shown that he can quickly warm up to people and is improving with other dogs. He's even been able to visit pet stores and shop with his foster. Sport would do best in a home that enjoys activities like horseback riding, kayaking, backpacking, day hikes, and daily jogs. He's the perfect workout partner and adventure companion. Sport loves cuddles and attention once he’s mentally and physically satisfied. If not challenged, he’ll find ways to entertain himself, like tossing his ball at you! Playing fetch is Sport's absolute favorite. Sport may enjoy a home with a small dog companion, though it may take time for them to build a strong relationship. He needs a family committed to continuing his training, and his foster and a training consultant will provide guidance on what he has learned. Sport's ideal adopter will have a fenced yard, plenty of tennis balls, and no children under 16, as he can be too energetic for smaller children. He’s not suited for a home with cats, as he finds them too interesting and fun to chase. Sport is neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on his core vaccines. He is being fostered in Tacoma, WA. If you're ready for an adventurous and loyal companion, Sport is waiting to meet you! Adoption Process: - Adoption Application - Phone Conversation - Meet & Greet - Home Visit - Application Approval - Adoption Fee & Contract ($290) Our adoption application is available at pnwcdr.org/adopt.

Story
Timber grew up on our little farm. He loves to go for walks, paddle board and play in the water. He is a very happy boy. Timber was kicked by our horse about a year ago and since then has a fear of children running past him and sometimes other animals. This usually is a quick bark or a latching on to clothes of a person who scares him. Timber would be best with a couple, single adult or place where he can run around freely. He will come with a kennel, bed, bowls, leashes and toys. We love him a lot, but just can’t have him in our apartment building with so many people around that make him nervous. (We sold our little farm and are now living in an apartment for an unknown amount of time) Looking for a new best friend for Timber.
