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.
~~Tank is a down to Earth boxer who enjoys playing with his fur brothers. He is crate trained, but has some fear issues with the crate. He gets a long great with my two cats. He shares a home with a 3 year old and 1 year old. Although he plays great with them, he does get a little concerned when they cry or make loud noises. He just seems to care for them. Tank is very timid, especially of men, but it does not take long for him to trust someone. He needs the right home for this... Someone that will show him they love him each and everyday. Tank is a fence jumper, therefore he will either need a six foot fence or stay on a lead/runner. Tank LOVES bones and to play with toys. He does not chew blankets or toys that are not his. Tank is potty trained and asks to go outside. Overall, Tank would thrive in a home that is calm and one that can work with him on his insecurity.
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.
