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.

Roscoe - 9 years old (Fostered in Wilmington, NC)

Hi, I'm Roscoe. I'm a sweet senior dog who just loves lazing around on a soft bed or couch near my people. I'm totally house trained and I know 'sit' and 'paw'. I love to eat and my foster mom says that's good because I"need some meat on my bones". I enjoy exploring the sunny yard too, the sun feels so good in the morning. I've only been at my foster home a week so I'll let you know more later, right now it's naptime.

10/18 Update    Hi, I'm Roscoe and I am a great senior guy who just loves to be loved. I like relaxing at home and cuddling on the couch. My foster parents say I'm perfect with no behavior issues whatsoever. I take some carprofen for my knees and it makes me feel good enough to do zoomies once in a while ("Roscoe zoomies" that is. Haha). I am a great dog with a big head and a big heart. I love cats, dogs, people, toys, pizza, you name it. I'm pretty easy going, not big on stairs or long walks, I'm a cuddlebug.

12/13 Update    Hi Roscoe here giving an update! I'm excited to report that I'm getting my lumps removed and checked on Dec 20th! No more lumps for me! My foster parents say I'm a big lug. I'm not one for long walks or jumping, I love just napping around the house. I'm a good boy, just give me my toys, soft bed in a crate, food and I'm happy. When I first got to my foster home I was thin at 62 lbs but I've gained 9 lbs with some healthy food and snacks and foster mom says now I'm a good weight. I like fish oil in my food because that helps with my knees. I'm not picky and if you're eating pizza you better have a napkin for me because just smelling pizza makes me drool!

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.
