CBR is a volunteer run, 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving North and South Carolina. Our Boxers come to us from shelters, humane societies and directly from owners. They enter into volunteer foster homes throughout both states and live indoors with the foster family and other pets. Each Boxer receives a complete physical, immunizations, sterilization, heartworm test and treatment for any illnesses or diseases. We evaluate temperament to ensure that each Boxer we rescue will make a good family pet. These evaluations are achieved through living with the dog and watching him/her interact with children, adults and other pets. All of our Boxers are tested for aggression issues and any other behavior problems. Each dog learns basic house manners and is crate and house trained. We do not accept nor place dogs with known human aggression issues.
~~Finn has been here two weeks and since he is our first blind foster we have been taking it even slower than usual. He is a LOVER!!!!! He likes nothing better than to lean into his people while they give him a rub or to chew on a tasty antler. We haven't been working too hard on housebreaking yet because today is NEUTER day but he is doing well with it. He did bump into a few walls when he arrived but has gotten good quickly at navigating the house. We have been doing one room at a time. He's not a big barker and his intros to our dogs through the pet gate have been uneventful.after his neuter he will start heartworm treatment. From what we were told he hasn't really had a chance to just hang out and be a boxer so our plan for him is to keep working on his confidence until his special someone comes along.....is it you?
Please visit Carolina Boxer Rescue for more information on available dogs, adoption policies, CBR events!
Anyone interested in a CBR dog should read our Views and Policies and, if in agreement, fill out and submit an application. During the processing phase, all references will be checked including vet and landlord (if renting). As long as there are no negative references and the application does not contain any information contradictory to our policy, a homevisit will then be scheduled. After the homevisit, the applicant is either approved to adopt, approved with contingencies or denied. At this point, we begin the process of matching your family with one of our boxers. Our standard adoption fee is $250.00. Mixes may be less and puppies may be more.
