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.
Munter - 10 years old (Fostered in Elizabethtown, NC)
Well today has been a month since I've been in my foster haus. I have really come out of my shell and Mutter says I'm going to be wonderful company for someone. I am ein dunner Mann (sounds better than skinny!), but besides my arthritis, the doctor gave me a clean bill of health! Achy joints don't keep me from my favorite things though. I like balls and I LOVE zu rennen! Mutter says when I run my legs make me look like a baby giraffe! I've never seen a giraffe but I'm pretty sure I'm more handsome. I continue to avoid the other dog here, but I canput her in check if I need to. Mutter won't let us have toys together because I can be a little possessive of mine. We do dine together and I am always on my best behavior. I love to play with the cat but evidently he likes zu rennen too because he is hard to catch! I spend most of my time on my soft bed because it feels good to my legs. Sometimes I curl up beside Mutter, but most of the time I prefer my own space close by. The children still come around a lot. I love them but know to take it easy and have never jumped on them. I really like it here, but Mutter says with a sweet grey face like mine I will go to a forever home soon!
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.
