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.


Rocco - 3 years old (Fostered in Hilton Head SC)

My name is Rocco.  I am a love sponge.  I am around 3 years old  I was in a shelter in Anderson SC until a crazy human from the Carolina Boxer Rescue network got me out of there.  I'd been on my own for a while and became heart worm and other parasite positive.  Even though I was sick I felt just fine.  My new family and I went straight to the vet to start getting all the treatments and precautions I need.  My new family was going on vacation so I had to stay with the family trainer to test me while they were away.  I love other dogs big or small, and kids too.  I don't like the crate very much but I will do it if I have too.  I love to run and play.  I'm really good and my mom left me at the house alone and I was a good boy.  I'm learning how to be a gentleman.  So, if you'd like a sweet, loving, handsome and loyal pooch I'm your guy..

11/13 Update    Rocco is doing well, super sweet and very loving! He needs to be always with a leash because he will run away.. we are teaching him but from been a stray we do not want to loose him. He is learning commands very fast! He is always by your side, he wants to be love often.. I hope he can find a very special family to love him forever..



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.
