This handsome boy originally arrived at NCCR on 3/28/19 after being found stray and going unclaimed.  He was subsequently adopted, but did not get along at all with the resident cat and was returned on May 1st.  Arthur is a neutered mixed breed, around a year old now.  His breed mix is guess to include German Shepherd, Mastiff and probably several other breeds as well.  Arthur gets along with most other dogs, but does NOT get along with CATS!   He is quiet in his kennel and is not much of a barker.  Arthur is house trained, but may need to brush up on his skills in a new home.  He is a rough player and doesn't know his own strength and has a tendency to turn everything into a game (whether you want to play or not!).  Arthur has made wonderful progress in learning the "leave it" command and will work for treats.  He also likes to play fetch and knows "sit".  A home without small children is required. As with all young dogs, he will benefit from ongoing training, lots of exercise and plenty of patience and love to help him be the best adult dog he can be.  A family that has experience with large dogs and the willingness to continue Arthur's training and behavioral management is recommended.  
To see videos of Arthur, look under the "Dog Videos" tab on our website.  

Arthur is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.  His adoption fee is $190.00.  (cash or check only, we are unable to accept credit cards)

Arthur is kindly sponsored by Steve and Barb Kosierb in memory of Briar Phelka, Lynn Gresham, Melford Swanson, Kathy Keller and David Grayson.  Thank you everyone! 
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.
