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.


~~We have been fostering Lucy, since September 27th. She is an enjoyable girl who likes her human sidekicks, interacting with us and watching everything we do inside the house as well as out.  She is crate trained and house broken. She likes to be hugged with lots of human skin-dog fur contact for fairly long periods of time (1-2 minutes). Lucy has not chewed on any of our furniture or shoes. She is up to date on her meds. She is heartworm negative. Right now she is thin and starting to eat more and will be putting some weight on. On my home scale Lucy weighs 43.5 pounds. She had previously been in a South Carolina animal shelter since 3/4/2016.

Lucy enjoys both inside and outside of our house. She is happy in our fenced backyard for up to 2 hours at a time with a person with her in the backyard almost all of the time. She watches the dogs of our neighbors with a lot of interest. She enjoys running along the fence with them. She is not much of a barker during these displays. She is a fast runner. She is not much of a barker at all.

Lucy is a very affectionate and attentive animal who loves to play with people at a slow to medium pace. She has a favorite squeaky toy that fascinates her. She does not get up on kitchen counters or into garbage cans. In our home, she is not allowed on beds or to get into chairs or couches. She obeys and knows these rules and learned our rules in a day or two. She likes her open door crate and goes into and out of it frequently as a center of her activities. She sleeps overnight in her door-shut crate, and then goes outside at about 7am before I leave to go to work. She sleeps and rests in her crate and also on an elevated small exercise trampoline with a blanket on top. She is fond of this trampoline as one of her favorite zones and learned this trampoline-area in just one try. She has learned our house rules faster than any dog we have ever fostered (about 20 total dogs and 4 boxers)

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.
