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 my name is Athena. I am about two years old. I am a very loveable boxer mix. I love cuddling and giving kisses. I have a cute trick where I can sit very well for you till you get in the right position for a face lick. I get along great with all age children and dogs. I prefer when the dogs let me make the first contact. I would rather not be left in the yard by myself, some say the grass is greener on the other side but I see places that need to be explored. Sleeping on the bed is her favorite thing especially when she is really close to somebody.


Athena is crate trained and house broken just needs to work on some manners. She would do great in a house that has a fenced in yard and people who likes to go on short walks. We prefer a least a 6 foot privacy fence for her. She is full of energy  she will need a family who will play with her. Athena is not really a barker I’ve only heard her bark  twice. She is not excited with baths, she will try and jump out. Her tail hasn’t been docked and its constantly wagging back and forth.

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.
