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.
~~Hi there! Izzy here. I am a boxer mix, (heavy on the boxer) with a natural tail. I have been told I am very energetic. But what do you expect...I still have my sweet puppy tendencies. But don't let that fool you....I don'tchew or dig, and I haven't even tried to jump the fence. I do great in my kennel. I am good with other dogs, however foster mom recommends feeding me separately due to minor food aggression towards other dogs.
I am petite, but I am very healthy. I like to play with kids but I forget and get excited and jump on people, so maybe I wouldn't do so well with small kids at least without close supervision. And the all important house-training...what ever that is..but I haven't had any accidents in the house or my crate.
And just look at my pictures...I got that frog pose down pat!
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.
