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.


~~This big guy has had a tough life so far. His daddy died, and after his mama decided to leave him in a outdoor pen. When hurricane matthew came through, she decided to evacuate the house, and leave him behind. But some great folks found him and got with CBR and saved him! Here's to the good life buddy, you have no idea how great its gonna be!

My foster family named me Matthew, turns out that was the big storms name that I had to stick out in the outdoor pen my mama abandoned me in. Who knew they named storms? Silly humans...

I went to the vet, I was NOT a fan of the ladies poking and proding me. But, they said I got good news out of it... they say I dont have those icky heartworms!

I am adjusting well. I needed a few days to gain trust with my foster humans. But Im doing better now, I dont cry anymore. I love to romp and play with foster sister when foster mom lets us. I even let foster sister be top dog! Im just so whatever about stuff.. I also have very good manners, they say! I am as calm as can be, I just like to loungeee around all day on the couch. Butttt, I will not even look at that crate thing foster mom has tried to put me in. I run away when she calls me to try to go in! Nopeeee... I refuse to be put in jail again! I was in there for a year and I aint goin back!!! Good thing Im very well behaved when Im left unattended, huh!

Matthew is 2-3 years old. HW neg. And needs someone who will go slow with him at first. Slow and steady wins the race!

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.
