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.

VINNY 2 years old - (Fostered in Bluffton SC)

Vinny was picked up as a stray, so we have no history on him. He’s got some pretty strong fear issues with just about everyone other than foster mom and dad. We have been working tirelessly to help him overcome this “stranger danger”. He still has a long way to go, but we’re pleased with the way he’s improved. We are currently working with a Dog Psychology Expert to help Vinny become a calm and balanced dog.
We suspect that he is still very young, around 2 years old. Other than a recent treatment for whip worms he appears to be very healthy, physically. At home he is a happy, wiggly, silly, playful boy. He loves to snuggle, loves belly rubs and most of all, loves his people. Even though Vinny is completely housebroken, he must be crated when left alone. Boredom often sets in and when you return home, you may find he has done some re-decorating. He listens to HGTV all day. Perhaps that’s where he’s getting these creative ideas!
Vinny’s adopter will have to be someone who is calm, but assertive, and is willing to continue working with him. He’ll need plenty of daily exercise, mental stimulation and patience. He’s not one of those dogs who would be “perfect for anyone”, but there is no doubt that a very special someone will come along someday and fall in love with him. 

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.
