Due to our inability to accept any new rescues at this time, the following Boxers and Boxer mixes are currently staying in area shelters, humane societies or with individuals that are unable to permanently keep them.  These are courtesy listings only and are not a part of the Carolina Boxer Rescue program, therefore we make no representations regarding the dogs. 

To learn more about any of the dogs below please contact the shelter/individual listed directly; 

It is our hope that this page will help these dogs find new homes before it's too late


Hi, I’m Penny, an 11-month old, 42-lb mutt (probably a Boxer/Pit mix) in search of a forever home. I’m spayed, current on vaccinations, and taking heartworm preventative. I’m also sweet, funny, and very smart!

I enjoy children and get along just fine with my foster family’s cats. I like most other dogs – as long as we have a proper introduction – and my foster mom thinks I’d do well with a canine sibling. (But we’d need to meet first to be certain.) I’m doing well with house-training and learning not to pull on the leash and am well-behaved in the car. I have excellent mealtime and bedtime manners and know sit, lie down, roll, over, and wait. My FAVORITE thing to do is sit on the couch with my head in your lap… or take a snooze in my beloved beanbag!

When I’m not napping, I have a lot of energy, so a fenced yard would be awesome! I don’t do well in a crate, but, with time, love, and training, I should be able to overcome my anxiety. If you’d like to know more about me, please contact my foster family at (336) 287-3011. References (including vet and landlord, if applicable) are required.

Buddy is available for ADOPTION. He is a purebred, housebroken, fully vetted, HW negative, American Bulldog. He was surrendered to us when his owner went into a nursing home. Buddy is a 6 yr old Male American Bulldog weighing 85 lbs. He has chronic allergies that will require some continued management. He is currently being treated for a skin infection and an ear infection. He has entropion in his left eye which had a procedure several years ago, but the problem has reoccurred causing irritation and scarring in the left eye. Ideally he needs another surgical procedure for the lids and is currently being treated with lubricant to help improve the comfort and function. He is a very sweet boy that has been with children and other large breed dogs. He did not do well with a small breed dog, so I recommend avoiding that. It is unknown how he would do with a cat.
If you are interested in MEETING AND/OR ADOPTING Buddy and giving him a loving, forever home, please send an email to info@peaklabrescue.com and let them know. If you haven't done so already, please fill out the ADOPTION APPLICATION here:https://goo.gl/J6nVFz and submit it for approval. Thank you!

1yr old blue pit was found near Cameron Village in Raleigh and her owner's were never found. So now we seek an adopter to give her an amazing home. She is house trained, crate trained, dog friendly, loves kids and is attentive to people of all shapes, sizes and ages. She has been around small dogs here and is over zealous in wanting to play so dogs her size and energy level are best. She spent the entire weekend with my 1 and 3 year old grand children and was great with them. She is updated on vaccines, rabies and spayed. We are asking a small adoption fee of $50. If you would like to adopt her please email Mikki at michedolene@gmail.com.

“Pretty” is a 6 year old female boxer mix. She has a loving, loyal personality and desperately needs your help to find her a forever home! She is very sweet and snuggly, and loves going on walks!  She is leash trained, and house broken.  She is also crate trained, but a crate is probably not necessary. She is loose in the house at night and for brief periods when her foster parents are not home, and she hasn’t gotten into or destroyed anything.  She likes to lie around, but is ready for action when you are.  She loves ear scratching and playing with her toys, and is very strong in tug of war.

“Pretty” was adopted from Pet Helpers in 2009. In June, she was picked up loose on Savannah Hwy in Charleston, and her adoptive family could not be located, so she returned to Pet Helpers.  She does not like being in the shelter, and all the activity on the adoption floor makes her very nervous, so she is now in foster care. Her adoption fee is only $50, and she is spayed and up to date on all shots. She is heart worm positive, and once adopted, Pet Helpers will start the treatment at their cost.  Treatment was started and discontinued because “Pretty” was so agitated at the shelter.  It is imperative that she stay calm during the long treatment. She prefers to be in a home without any other pets. Won't you please help us find Pretty her forever home?  Check out this website for more pictures:

Troy AKA Tater is a male boxer mix.  He is neutered, current on all his vet care, weighs around 70 pounds, and is about 2 1/2 years old.  He family abandoned him with us.  They had him locked in a fenced yard alone from the time he was 12 weeks old until he was a year and a half.  Desperate for attention, he began climbing their fence.  At this point his family was going to take him to the shelter if we did not take him in. 

We now have him house trained, crate trained, and responsive to basic commands.  He is HIGH energy.  He is great with kids.  He listens well and is very eager to please.  He walks well on a leash, but does still jump went he meets new people.  He will still climb a fence, so would need to be an indoor dog.  He does fine with our dogs, but would prefer to be the only dog.  If there will be other dogs in the house he will need a proper introduction and a dominant owner.  He is fine with our cats, but again would need an owner that can instill a healthy boundary.  

To be considered be prepared to provide a vet reference and property check. NO EXCEPTIONS.   Please contact mypetadtater@gmail.com
