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

It is with a heavy heart that we need to find a new home for my brother’s two dogs due to upcoming professional and life changes.  We are looking for a loving home to take in the two of them together, as they grew up together.



We care about these two very much and will not entertain anyone with ill intent or who is not willing to care for the dogs’ best interest. 

General info:  Both dogs are about 6 years old and females. They are inside dogs and accustomed to using a doggie door. Both are incredibly sweet and quite loyal. 

Leila (boxer mix) is light brown and Bella (boxer) is dark Brindle in color. 

References may be required to ensure their safety.

8 year old male mixed breed  Looks Like a Boxer Mix

Animal ID 37655194


Zeus here! I am sweet, gentle soul looking for a quiet loving home. My grey nose indicates I have had a longer life other dogs, but I assure you it hasn't affected the love I have in my heart. I am a loyal and devoted dog who longs for a human to make happy every day. I don't need much. A cozy bed, yummy treats and leisurely walks. I would do best in a home with teens and up because I don’t always like to be touched everywhere. Would you like to make my dreams come true and adopt me? Ask how you canta ke me home today!

dog 4.jpg

I work for Yadkin County Animal Shelter and we currently have a boxer mix named Charlie. He is about 2 years old, neutered, HW Negative, and UTD on all vaccines. He has been here since January 11th. He is a wonderful boy, can jump about 4 to 5 foot flat footed, (that is a beautiful thing to see lol). He does pull on leash alittle going outside, but coming in. He does not jump on anyone, listens very well, will stay sit and laydown. Is cautious around other cats and dogs. Great around all humans, he is a love bug. He is being looked over and no one is interested in him, we will not put him down for time and space, we have not done that for any cat or dog in almost two years. (Makes me proud to say that). . Thank You for taking a moment to read my lengthy message, this boy deserves a good life, we are not giving up on him. I

Thank You

Marabelle - This sweet gal was thrown from a motorboat off the coast of Wilmington, NC and the scoundrels in the boat sped away while a witness watched in horror. She swam for her life and was picked up by Animal Services. She has been at the shelter for several months and was on death row when a nice lady named Jane sponsored her and I’ve been housing her ever since. Marabelle is approximately 8 years old, spayed, current on vaccines and microchipped. She has done fine with her foster mates, but I think would prefer being the only dog, or maybe companion to a similar sized male dog. She is very chill and gentle, and her favorite activities are riding in a car and sunning herself. She walks well on a leash and knows how to sit on command. She weighs about 40lbs, has a beautiful brindle coat, and deserves a second chance....if you have room in your heart and home, please call/Text her foster Mom, Grace, at 910-352-6256




Say Hello to Dolley!

Dolley is a 1 y.o., 30 lb, boxer mix with vim and vigor. She is super-smart and learns quickly. Dolley loves people and can’t get enough human attention and affection. She would be best in a home where she is the center of attention. Dolley is ready and eager to learn and LOVES her walks! We are working with her on her moderate food aggression. Dolley is still very youthful, is a dream on a leash, and loves to share her toys and balls. She was rescued from being dumped in a local park. Dolley has her vaccinations and has been treated for flea/ticks. Adoption fee will cover costs of getting Dolley spayed. Have a little faith and, fellas, she’ll make yours the place where she belongs! Please contact  arpelon@uncg.edu email and phone number is 336-256-0143.
