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.
Reva is an approximately 5 year old sweetheart with an amazing temperament and love for cuddles. She is great with children, other dogs and even cats! House trained and crate trained with knowledge of simple commands. She is heartworm positive and is not yet spayed. She recently had a mast cell tumor removed and the margins did not come back good. The vet described the tumor as "low grade" and "non-aggressive." She was given a prognosis of 2-5 years without any further treatment. Upon speaking with the vet her suggestion is to refer to an oncologist for further evaluation to see if she is still a candidate for heart worm treatment. At the moment the overall consensus is to keep her happy and comfortable and see if anything further develops. To look at this sweet girl you would never guess her recent developments. She loves to play outside and bask in the sun. She has a thing for socks and stuffed animals and on occasion gets the wild hair to tear up something soft and cuddly but overall she usually just enjoys her bones and of course treats. :) She has some complications with one of her back knees but is being managed with anti-inflammatories when necessary. Reva is such a doll baby and has the patience of a saint when it comes to her foster brother Mongo. No aggression has been noted during her stay with us. On one occasion she got a bit cranky in a large group of people/dogs but she was also a bit achy and tired so she was making sure she let everyone know she needed some space. Reva loves to meet new people and our home is welcome to anyone looking to adopt and would like to meet her.
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.
