Oliver (Norman)

“We decided to change Norman’s name to Oliver. He seemed to respond better when we called him that and he’s learned his named pretty quick. The first few days he was pretty quiet, nervous, and timid. But after about a week he started to show his personality off by being more playful with me, started playing with his toys more, cuddling much more, and started to bark at the neighbors some when they walk by, slowly getting out of that habit. He’s full of energy and gets along with all the other dogs he has met around the complex. Probably his favorite thing to do is try to catch the squirrels and chase away robins. He has become much better at being on a leash and never seems to tire out, we go on about a 2 mile walk every night and he probably could go many more miles. He has had a few accidents early on but I have learned his tendencies to when he needs to go out and he’s getting much better at letting me know and the accidents haven’t been for over a week. He’s adjusted rather well and definitely has made himself at home quick. Thank you so much for allowing us to adopt such a wonderful dog.”

Oliver was adopted in April 2020.

Abbi (Jeri)

“Abbi (formerly “Jeri” ) has adapted very well to both her new family as well as her new home. She is a very very friendly dog who loves to give hugs and is very affectionate in general. She loves her new sister Ginger who was also an adoptee from NCCR as well as her human sisters Emma and Ava! We have also noticed quite the improvement in Ginger as far as being active goes now that she has a sister to play with and boy oh boy do they play! All in all we were truly blessed when we were given the opportunity to add Abbi to our lives!”

Abbi was adopted in February 2020.

Mia (Jinger)

Jinger was another of the “Digger Dozen” and puppy of Lotus! “Mia is 6 months now and is growing up beautifully! She brings us joy and keeps us moving! We can’t wait to share Spring and Summer adventures with her;)”

“Liberty is doing great she’s passed Puppy school, Canine Good Citizen and just passed her Advanced Canine Good Citizen test last Wednesday. She’s going for her therapy dog test through Paws for Love with the SPCA as well as TDI. She’s a great dog and fits in with the rest of our clan!”

Liberty was adopted in September 2019.

Waylon (Andy)

“Andy is now Waylon and he is doing great! He finished all of his medication, his wound has fully healed and has gained some good weight. He really wants to play but we’re taking it easy because of the heartworm treatment. He has a great appetite and he gets along so well with our other dog Sully! I think Sully is happy to have a sibling again, he was so lonely after we lost our Betty. We can’t wait for summer to see these boys really enjoying being outside playing together! Thank you for all that you do!”

Waylon was adopted in April 2020.

Amanda Sue

Amanda and her companion Tucker were brought to NCCR as a pair, to be adopted together and they were. But after a short time, the family decided they didn’t want Amanda and then refused to bring Tucker back so that they could stay together. Fortunately for Amanda Sue, a loving family re-adopted her and she surely looks pretty happy! “Manda Sue is loving all her favorite people being at home! I just wanted you to know what a blessing she has been to our family!”

Amanda Sue was adopted in September 2019.

Ollie (Nelson)

“Nelson is doing great. We changed his name to Ollie. He is settling in nicely. Someone did a good job training him to walk on leash. He needs some manners which we would expect put is picking up on them pretty quick. He’s very well house broken and crate trained. Thank you so much for reaching out to us. We were getting very discouraged because several rescue groups never got back to us. It was very discouraging but we are glad it worked out in the end. Give a thanks to all involved at your rescue, you do great work. We will certainly recommend you to others looking for a dog to rescue.

Ollie was adopted in April 2020.

Finnian (Cubby)

Finnian fka Cubby came to us from a cruelty case along with two other Samoyeds. The poor dogs had improper care and lived outside in filth. “Finnian has been unwinding more in the past week. He’s shown zero interest in any toys thus far, but has started some indications of play – exuberant and jumpy. He’s continued to eat well. Breakfast usually doesn’t get finished right away, and he seems to think there’s never enough dinner. The first time out of the van, all he wanted to do was sit in snow and eat it. We put a water dish out, and he would ignore it in preference of snow. It’s still something he does on snowy walks – grab mouthfuls along the way.

We’re happy to have him in our home. All family who’ve met him love him, and the vets say he takes anything they’ve needed to do very well. Other than getting on the scale – that takes some convincing.

Finnian was adopted in February 2020.
