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

Duke has been in boarding for years...

 PEARL -  Boxer, between 2-3 years old (best estimate), fawn color & spayed. Typical boxer energy, but also a serious couch lounger. Very playful, sometimes maybe a little too playful for small children or small dogs. Can be dog-choosy, probably best as someones only pet. Untested around cats. Soft mouth when taking treats, knows sit and stay (mostly,) does well on a leash, but does need correction from time to time on a walk to stop from pulling. Has a touch of separation anxiety, wants to be a lap and couch dog, wherever you are, is where she wants to be. I’ve had her almost a year and a half and she any my old dog just can’t seem to get along consistently and its making the three of us a little too stressed out. Keeping them separated has been tough on all of us.

This is CALLIE.. She is available for adoption through the Stokes County Humane Society. Callie is a year old and a sweetheart! She is heartworm negative and UTD on vaccinations and will be spayed when adopted. Her family no longer had the time to care for her and had her listed on a local yard sale page as FREE to good home. The stokes humane society quickly scooped her up to ensure she was safe and got a good home. She is a submissive girl with other dogs and ignores cats. She is a total sweetheart! If you are interested in adopting Callie please email Suzie 70301@gmail.com

Bopsey - We would like to ask if you would consider a courtesy post for a wonderful Boxer we have named Bopsey. His owner had him as a puppy and surrendered him to us as she will need to go to assisted living - he has been well loved and is in foster care with the best.  He is well rounded - sweet and has come out of his shell after leaving his mom.  He is UTD with vaccines negative with a 4dx test and has had a dental.

About 4 weeks ago, I agreed to take in a stray who was found wandering in a neighborhood in Indian Trail, NC.  I was told that she was dragging her legs behind her but I haven’t seen anything like that since she’s been with me.  I have been unable to find her a home and, because of a diagnosis I received this week, I can’t continue to foster her.  (My “fostering” has been completely informal, just helping out the finder who couldn’t keep her.) 

 Betsy is about 10 years old.  I have taken her to my vet twice and she has had vaccines for rabies, Bordatella and another vaccine I can’t remember.  She tested negative for heartworms.  She weighs 67 lbs. and has significant arthritis in her back and rear legs, for which she is taking Carprofen.  She has no microchip.  We have posted flyers where she was found, posted her information on PetFinder and Facebook, and have registered her with the animal shelter but no one has claimed her.

 Apart from all of that, she is one of the sweetest dogs I’ve ever met.  She needs a home where someone is able to give her a lot more attention than I can; she is happiest when she’s lying on the couch next to you.  That’s really all she wants.  She does not get along well with cats and really should be in a home where she’s the only pet.

Bella - Boxer mix. She is absolutely adorable and sweet, but she has proven too much for us to handle.  I have a one-year old granddaughter that I fear will be hurt due to Bella's neverending energy.  She is a house dog and both of my granddaughters live with me.  The other granddaughter is 8 years old.  She, too, has a time with Bella's energy and recklessness. Bella needs a high energy home for her to flourish in.

PLEASE HELP Find Buddy A Loving Home! <3

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.

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:


Contact Pat Perry at Pet Helpers:  843-531-6167 or call the main adoption number 843-795-1110, or fostercare@pethelpers.org  (email is probably the best)

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

Hi! My name is Tank.

 I am an 11 year old boxer mix. I am a very sweet and loving dog. I love to take short walks, ride shot gun, chew bones and cuddle with my family. I’ve been told my ears feel like velvet. I walk/run well on a leash and prance like a deer. I know some tricks. I can sit, speak and shake, but catching food midair is still a challenge. I am old, but I am still very playful. The snow makes me frisky and I love to feel the sand between my toes. I have a big heart and a lot of love to give.

The only family I’ve known is searching for my new home.  After being their baby for so long, two kids (ages 4 and 18 months) have taken away my attention and small children make me nervous. I would be best suited in a home with no small children. I’ve grown up with another dog and a cat. I get along well with most family pets, but would be most happy as the only dog.

Please consider me as your new companion. Free to a good home. If interested please email Chris at chris.holt0725@gmail.com.

Neutered and rabies vaccinated.

Any sponsorship to help treat her heart-worms would be greatly appreciated and help a rescue make the commitment to take her!

We are calling this sweet girl August (animal #162). She was an owner surrender and is as sweet as she can be! She is spayed! However, she did test positive for heart-worms so we are hoping someone will still step up to rescue and/or adopt her. She is a petite pit-bull mix at only 37 pounds. She is waiting at the shelter but please don't hesitate as the kennels are filling up fast. Please call the shelter at 757-653-2100 or email shelterdogs757@yahoo.com if you can help her.
