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...it's me Jarvis.  I am new here and thought I would tell you about myself.  First the good things..I love to play fetch, snuggle on the couch and I sleep in the bed with my humans.  I have only had a little accident in the house (hey I was excited) and I will let you know I need to go out.

Now the not so good....I need someone that will love me and have patience with me.  Foster mom says I need someone to take time with me and train me not to jump when I get excited and see someone new.  I have not had that in my life and I now have some separation anxiety. I also get too attached to my people...so attached I don't want any other dogs or peoples to get close to my peoples, I think they are all mine.

Foster mom also told me to say I would be best in a home with no other animals...fish, birds, cats and other dogs....no one ever taught me they aren't to be played with, so I would do best as an only animal in the house...even though I keep telling her I am not an animal..

Ok, I am going to let foster mom talk now.  Jarvis would be a wonderful companion to anyone that is familiar with the boxer breed...that knows how intelligent and stubborn they are.  Jarvis deserves someone to love and train him to help him be the great companion he can be.

Update 10/8  

Foster Dad here, Jarvis has been getting much better with his manners like jumping on guests, snipping at his older foster sister. Learning to heal on walks, but this takes a firm person walking him to help him learn. He also knows his basic commands including some fun ones as shake. He is good at meal time sitting at edge of kitchen waiting for the command that his food is ready.

He is wanting to learn and to please and is very intelligent, just a lot of puppy as most boxers are at his age.

As far as having other pets in the house I would still say he will do best as a only pet, but will get along and bond with another female dog , older would be better , and should be his size or bigger. Our female outweighs him by 35# and is 6 years older, so she holds her own with him and helps show him how to behave.

 He will bond with his new parents especially with the alpha that is training him he will constantly follow , sit and snuggle his new trainer as he only wants to please and needs someone to help him learn.

 We are both enjoying him more each day especially at play time (which is often).  Loves to play fetch and run outside for his ball and tug of war is one of his favorites. He is very active but does enjoy his naps.

 He also enjoys going for rides and is very good while in a car.

 We can’t wait to hear how he is doing as he matures and learns with a forever family and home.

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.
