COLUMBIA, S.C. — According to the American Kennel Club's description, the traits of a boxer dog are "loyalty, affection, intelligence, work ethic, and good looks: Boxers are the whole doggy package. Bright and alert, sometimes silly, but always courageous, the Boxer has been among America’s most popular dog breeds for a very long time."
If you've ever wanted to adopt a boxer, Saturday may offer a chance to meet and mingle with boxers and boxer owners at the first annual Soda City Boxer Bash. Carolina Boxer Rescue is partnering with Hunter-Gatherer Brewery & Alehouse and Amanda DuPre for an afternoon of socializing and fundraising for the rescue organization.

All proceeds from the event will go to the medical care of foster dogs in need through Carolina Boxer Rescue.
