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.

~~10/28 Update   Camden is a goofy, playful boy with a super sweet personality. He's neutered, heartworm negative, and at an weight (around 65 pounds). He LOVES to play with other dogs and to go for daily walks. Despite being so young and strong, he's surprisingly easy to walk. He prefers leisurely strolls over power walks. Camden loves water. He regularly invites himself into the shower in the morning and will hop into a lake or pond if you let him. He's a huge snuggler. He'll curl up with you to watch a movie or for a good belly rub (his favorite) once he burns off his energy. He didn't know about toys when he arrived, so we're trying to teach him to play with those. So far, he likes ones he can shake and sling around. Prior to coming into rescue, it's obvious that Camden had zero training and probably not much human attention either. He's very smart and quickly learning boundaries.

Camden has two specific behavior issues we're working on: food resource guarding and playing/mouthing too rough with people. He guards high value edible items at times (his breakfast, a snatched no-no food item from the kitchen). We're working with him on this with a "drop it" command, and things are getting better than when he first got here. He eats meals in a crate, which solves his anxiety about anyone (human or canine) taking his food. He only gets edible big treats (such as a meaty bone) in his crate or if in a situation where no human or dog will bother him. If he gets a hold of something you need to take from him, he will "trade" you for a tasty treat, like a piece of cheese. You can give him small edible treats by hand (milkbones, deli meat) and he takes them very softly. You can also give him treats with other dogs around without any problems. The mouthing is his way of playing. Camden is slowly learning he can't play with humans like he does with other dogs.

Despite those two not-so-good behaviors, Camden's loving personality far outweighs any negatives. He needs a family who will be patient with him and appreciate him goofiness. A yard and daily walks are a must (he's happy with a short stroll around the block or a longer outing...doesn't matter which). He desperately wants to be part of the family. He sleeps on a bed on the floor in our bedroom or in "his chair" in the family room.

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.
