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.
~~Sweetie loves everyone and everything. She hasn't been around young kids yet but no reason to believe she wouldn't greet them with the same enthusiasm as everyone else. She knows sit, shake, and kennel up. Learning to play with toys - these are obviously new to her. Very smart and understands 'no' and listens. She tries to keep up with playing with our younger dog Cooper, but can't last as long as him. Never aggressive when she tells him she's had enough but he's pretty good at picking up on other cues. Interested in cats but not aggressively so. She just wants to meet them and they don't care for that. Sweetie is crate and house trained. she will need oral surgery, spay and fatty tumor behind front left leg checked.
Sweetie is learning to play with toys! It's obvious toys are new to her. She is very smart and knows 'kennel up,' even though she cries a little when she's in her crate. I think she quiets down when no one's home. No accidents in the crate so far. She still wants to play with the kitties, but listens when they've had enough (for the most part anyways). She's happy to meet anyone and everything in her path. Really, she's just the sweetest baby ever!
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.
