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.
~~I am Jon Snow - my foster Mom gave me this name because it is a character in a show who is a strong warrior and came back to life. She says I did the same after she rescued me from the shelter where I was picked up as a stray. I was in pretty bad shape, my foster Mom said and was heading toward my last day. I was afraid of the car and of loud noises but my foster Mom gave me so much love and talks to me in a sweet voice - even when I was dirty and dingy and whining!
I got to meet this awesome lady named Doc Jenny and she says I have some worms in my heart I have to get rid of and this tumor on my side in something called a 'surgery'. I'm not afraid though because Doc Jenny gave me belly rubs and lots of treats so I trust her! She said I will be all better! I feel like this is my FIRST of many fun days ahead!
My foster Mom says I am a whole different boy since we got home! I have a fur brother and sister who look just like me and they are so sweet and patient. I was so afraid of the stairs and the glass door where I kept bumping my head but I am getting the hang of them and Mom praises me when I do it right!
I LOVE to snuggle and give kisses and would do well in a home where I can snuggle as much as possible with my humans. I also love having fur siblings and am very social! I have a good amount of energy now but I think after my surgery, I will feel even BETTER and be able to run and play like my fur siblings!
Here's to the good life! I'll ready for a fur-ever home soon!
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.
