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.

Rupert has just arrived in his foster home, but so far we know Rupert enjoys going outside and loves a car ride! He hasn't learned what toys are yet, but we are working on that. He does not like going in the crate but once he is in there he is perfect. He was good with female dogs after a slow introduction. We are working on learning obedience commands.

Rupert would probably do best in an only dog home, or one with females.

2/13 Update Hey guys it's Rupert. I've been busy lately but figured I would let y'all know how I've been. So now FM trust me to have the whole house to myself! She says I'm such a good boy. I really just lay around on my bed waiting for them to come home. When they are home I'm very content laying on the couch snuggling with my humans. Sometimes though I take their blankets to put on the floor and curl up on, I love a soft blanket! My FM took me to the vet and they say I'm going to start feeling so much better that I can run around with my fur sisters in the yard! I really can't wait to be able to chase them around! I've been to work with FM and everyone just loved me and of course I loved them. They all said I was the sweetest boy! I can't wait to find my furever family cause I have so much love to give! 


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.
