Guess what breeds Phoebe is!

Guess what breeds Phoebe is!

We’ve wondered that since her arrival over a year ago. While we wait for the results of Phoebe’s DNA test, enter your guess below in this post. List what you think her main breed is first, followed by what other breeds you think she could be. Whomever guesses the closest, will win a NCCR t-shirt! (if more than one correct guess, the winner will be drawn from the correct guesses). Just go to our facebook page and enter your guess!

Phoebe would love a quiet home where she is your one and only. Learn more about her here:


Not long after Sasha (formerly Fantasy) arrived at NCCR, our population increased by five. This good little momma raised her beautiful pups and then found a home of her own. She has now been in her home for a year and just celebrated her first “Gotcha Day” with her family! “Sasha is doing great,she loves her daily walks, she also loves going to her grandma’s house to play as well as her uncle Jay’s house. She has turned into a very cuddling dog at time time during her bed time. She’s doing very well and gets a lot of love from my kids and my family members. Thank you!

Sasha was adopted in August 2019.

Lily (formerly Iris)

Lily’s stay at NCCR was short; she quickly left to start a new life! “We have changed her name to Lily, and she is doing amazing! She walks beautifully and is adjusting very well!”

Lily was adopted in August 2020.

Bruno (formerly Jeter)

Bruno was just a year old when he was rescued with his 9 year old chocolate lab mother from an abandoned shack in the mountains. We thought he was just the sweetest fellow and his family thinks the same! He’s celebrating his first “Gotcha Day”. “Bruno is doing great! He’s super sweet and loves to cuddle more than any dog I’ve ever met. His favorite person is my son, they have a very strong bond. He is besties with our cat Tucker. He is the perfect dog for our family. The only thing we haven’t figured out is training him to stay in our yard. We keep him on a leash at all times outdoors except for the dog park. Overall I have to say he’s pretty awesome!” 🙂

Bruno was adopted in August 2109.

Gracie Mae

Gracie Mae, formerly Cleo, was surrendered to NCCR when her family was unable to care for her. She is celebrating her very first ‘Gotcha Day’! “Gracie Mae has been the perfect addition to our family!  We feel so blessed to have her she has brought us so much happiness. She is soooo good. She gets along with everyone even the kitties.  We really thank you all so much for what you do and for helping us find our Gracie Mae❤️”

Gracie Mae was adopted in August 2019.


Portia arrived at NCCR along with another Chihuahua when they were just 5 months old. The previous owner kept the two in a crate full time, only taking them out to potty. All that has changed for her now as she is enjoying being spoiled! She has 3 cat siblings that she would love to play with, they just aren’t too sure about that yet!

Portia was adopted in August 2020.

Laika (Gina)

Beautiful Laika wasn’t at NCCR very long before she found a new home. From her family: “Thanks for checking in, it really shows that you care about the animals! Gina wasn’t responding to her name very well so I changed her name to Laika. She’s named after the first animal in space which is a story I find myself telling much too often now! She was understandably a little nervous for the first few weeks but has really been coming into herself lately! She seems to have adapted to the new routine pretty well! She has been great with other dogs and other people and has been a great walking buddy for me! I can hardly make it a block without someone stopping me and telling me how beautiful she is. this makes a short walk into a long one!

I would like to thank NCCR for everything they are doing for both the dogs, and for the adopters. You are running a fine organization and have brought a lot of happiness to myself and for everyone else that steps into my home.  Keep up the good work!”

Laika was adopted in August 2020.


Abby, a Border Collie mix, was surrendered by her family in 2019 as they did not have the time to devote to her that she needed. She was only a year old and had a lot of energy to burn. Abby spent about 4 months at NCCR; she had been waiting for a family that understood what her needs were and she found it! “It’s crazy to think it’s been only a year since we adopted Abby! Now that we have her, we can’t ever picture our lives without her. She has an extremely quirky and sweet personality, and we have loved every minute spoiling her and her dog brothers. She loves to chase the ball, stare at you while standing in front of the TV (haha!), and just being with her dog and human family. We love Abby, and we love NCCR!”

Abby was adopted in August, 2019.

Malley (formerly Aphrodite)

Malley was one of five puppies born shortly after their mom, Fantasy, arrived at NCCR. We received this note on her first “Gotcha Day” this year. “Hello, we wanted to give you an update on Malley (fka Aphrodite).  We adopted her a year ago today. Our 11 year old and her are the best of friends.  We are so happy we adopted her and I think she agrees.  She went on many walks during quarantine and kept our son from being bored.  She is so cute, we love her!”

Malley was adopted in July 2019.


Elroy was a stray and his owner did not come forward to claim him. He arrived with another dog, (Judy, now Ghosty) who wasn’t claimed either. Elroy was at the Rescue for many months, but he was finally chosen to join a family who patiently gave him time to settle in. He has plenty of canine companions now and a family to love him!

Elroy was adopted in July 2019,
