Handsome Zeus came to NCCR when his family moved and didn't take him along.  He is a 21 month old Shepherd/Rottweiler mix.  We are told that Zeus is dog friendly, but did have some food guarding behavior with the dog that he lived with.  He gets along fine with children, but he has never met a cat.  Zeus is   a young, strong dog with a lot of energy and he could use some work with leash manners.  On the plus side, he is housebroken, crate trained and knows some commands.  We are told he does not chew things in the house and he is very eager to please and ready to learn!  As with any young dog, he will benefit from daily ongoing training, lots of exercise and play time, along with plenty of patience and love to help him be the best dog he can be!

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

 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.
