Saving Cory

Cory Day 1


In 2015, Cory was saved from Stockton Animal Shelter by West Coast Boxer Rescue. He was emaciated with terrible mange, initially unable to stand, but made huge progress and is now a happy, strong boy enjoying life with his forever family. Cory’s journey was full of hurdles. He has a lesion in his heart, and it needs to be either treated or removed.  Please watch his video and see his will to live he has an amazing spirit!

Transformations like this can’t happen with out donations from supporters just like you.  Make a difference to a boxer: Thank you so much for your support.

Please watch Cory’s video

This is Cory currently. We still need to resolve his heart issue, mange, etc. but he is a happy boy.

Cory loves to play with his stuffed toy.

Featured Dog: Pluto Needs a Forever Home

In 2014, Pluto was rescued from a bad situation – his original owners had him tied to a chicken coop and was feeding him chicken feed, until a kind couple took him in and took care of him until we rescued him. Pluto is a big boy, weighing in around 80+ lbs. He has been around kids, loves people and takes treats gently. With proper introduction, he gets along with other dogs. He has been working with a trainer and knows his commands. He is a big boy, so he is best with strong people.  He has been waiting for his forever home and it brought us joy to see him get his wish granted with a loving family.  This is why we do what we do!



Featured Dog: Dodger Needs a Forever Home

In 2014 this head tilting handsome boy, Dodger, tugged our heartstrings, we had to get him to a better place.  He was rescued from Downey Animal Shelter.  Dodger is a smaller guy, only about 50 lbs.  Dodger is a lover, but he can be dog selective from time to time, and will do best in a home with strong leaders.  He has been in training with our trainer and knows many commands.

Dodger found his forever home and is thriving!

Blanca Needs A Home

Blanca is a beautiful white Boxer who is EXCELLENT with kids.  She is a love and a wiggle butt, only about 2 years old.  The only issue Blanca has is that she is somewhat dog selective.  She would be great in a home with no other dogs or submissive male.  Blanca is looking for a foster home or forever home.  Won’t you open up your heart and home for Blanca?  More pictures of Blanca can be seen here:


Special Need Dog: Suzie-Q

Suzie-Q is deaf, but she doesn’t know she is lacking in any way.  She is a typical happy go lucky sweet girl  that we enjoyed getting to know as she found her forever home.  Finding the right home for our deaf adoptable dogs can be more challenging.  Consistent training for all household members is even more critical to ensure the dog is learning and seeing correct commands to have nice manners.  Ideal homes typically are those with no small children (because deaf dogs can get startled when they don’t see little kids coming).  Another dog in the household can work.  Please consider opening up your home to one of our occasional deaf pups.

Featured Dog: Jett

Jett was rescued from Moreno Valley Animal Shelter in 2013. He was listed as being 2 years old, but this boxer boy is only about 1 year old. He is on the small side for a male boxer @ 42 lbs but still has some growing and filling out to do. He will be about 50 lbs full size.  Jett is still a typical puppy and is full of energy. He is a very sweet boy who just wants to play all day. He definitely needs some TLC and training. He wants to please and will learn quickly with positive reinforcement. He is good with other dogs people but needs to learn manners including not jumping. Jett is not good with cats.  Because of his energy level, we found him a home with no small children.

Another success story!  Happy times ahead for Jett!
