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.
~~So, they call me Freckles. I'm settling in nicely at my new foster home. I LOVE my little 2.0s (kids) & had an instant connection with them. The shelter said I didn't eat much & I am only 38 lbs, but that all seems to be changing now that I'm in this comfy home. Although, FM keeps making me eat out of this bowl on the floor, I would prefer to beg for that cheeseburger on the table. I do NOT like that crate! It is NOT fun at all!! I enjoy the big, fenced in backyard where I can walk around. I'm very shy & timid. FM is getting worried because she has yet to hear me make any noise. I have yet to bark. I'm not a fan of my 2.0s male figure, but FM's friend, Mrs. Molly, came over and I really like her & grandma. I'm looking for my furever home who would be patient with me and make very slow introductions. I'm very calm & sweet as pie. Once I get used to my surroundings I'll love you forever.
8/19 - update Vet update- she's only 2, not 100% deaf-can hear some, neg heart warm, has had puppies-they sucked all the nutrition out of her & then wasn't properly fed, hence the reason she's so skinny. Best demeanor at the vet. He said she was the most well behaved dog. She did great around people and other pets
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.
