German Shepherd Dog

I know it is hard for some adult dogs to find home, especially those that have specific needs like me.   The volunteers will tell you that I'm friendly, energetic, sweet and loving.    I come when called, know sit, shake and high five and  and that I loved to be brushed.  All sounds good right?  Here's where my specific needs come in.  I really don't care for other dogs for the most part, my home would have to be cat free and I really must be with my people as much as possible.  I cannot be crated;  close quarters like that make me far too anxious.   I love my outside time, to play and run off my energies; a home in the country would be perfect for me.  So, if you are home most of the time, or can take me with you, have time to exercise me daily and just make me feel secure, I will be your very loyal companion.

 If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an adoption application which you'll find under each dog's photo.  If you are on Petfinder, you will need to go to our webpage at http://www.caninerescue.org/available-pets/ (just copy and paste that link in your browser).   The application to adopt is  in the very lower left hand corner of each pet's webpage. 

We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs.  Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.  

*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application.  Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.  

NYS Registration #RR028.
