WCBR Loves our Seniors!

Senior boxers are especially special. They have many benefits that are commonly overlooked. They have passed through the puppy stage, they typically have nice manners and are grateful for a soft bed, a squeaky or plush toy, and affection from their humans. Simply put, they make great companions!

In April 2021 WCBR welcomed a sweet 11-year-old sugar face named Rossi. Rossi has that special sparkle in his eyes and spunk in his step, he’s an overall happy seasoned fellow. Seniors are not adopted as frequently as younger dogs but WCBR could not say no to Rossi, instead, we welcomed him into a foster home. A short few weeks later WCBR was thrilled when a nice family showed interest in mister Rossi and then welcomed him into their home in early May. We have since received an update that makes our hearts swell. We just had to share with you what they have had to share with us!

“Rossi is so perfect. He is just a love bug to everyone. He expects walks every morning, which is fine by us! He supervises us when we are working in the yard. Rossi loves our bed and has learned how to use the steps we got for him to get on and off. He also uses the doggy door. We are happy we added Rossi to our family!”

Finding homes for Boxers in need fuels WCBR! If you are interested in adopting or fostering a boxer fill out an application to adopt or foster a WCBR dog today!

WCBR Alumnus Sam takes 3rd at the the American Dog Rescue Show!

That moment when we see one of our very own WCBR alumnus on television! We are all so proud of Sam and his mama, Maddy Harvey, who entered the 2020 American Dog Rescue Show. They both did an amazing job representing rescue boxers and Sam made top 3 in the “Best Underbite” category! Watch him dazzle the judge with his pearlies. Congratulations Sam!


About Sam: 
Sam and his bonded sister, Carla supposedly raided a family chicken coop and were surrendered to West Coast Boxer Rescue shortly after. Madelaine says that they are so well mannered and get along with her 1 and 6-year-old children so well that the whole family has a strong bond. Sam is sweet, loving and energetic who has brought a lot of life to the family. Madelaine has even lost weight walking Sam and Carla and her young son is now old enough to feed them, teaching him schedule, consistency, and responsibility. Sam in particular, loves to fetch and could chase a ball around all day.

Favorite Toy: Tennis ball
Favorite Treat: Beef jerky strips
Favorite Activity: Playing fetch at the lake
Fun facts:
• Sam is named after Sam from Cheers because he is a “tall, gangly dude”
• Every morning, Madelaine takes Sam and Carla to Folsom Lake where they play fetch, walk and smell all the smells
