Beautiful Christie was rescued along with her sister Agatha from a NYS puppy mill. They arrived at NCCR on October 5th.  The mill people decided that they were too old and too big to sell so they were being kept tied to a tree. Christie is  nearing a year old; she's friendly and bouncy with a lot of energy!  She will require ongoing training to teach her leash manners and basic obedience skills, as well as plenty of vigorous daily exercise and play time. She is still a puppy so be sure you have the patience and time to train a big puppy before applying! 

Christie is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.  Her adoption fee is $190.00.  (cash or check only, we are unable to accept credit cards)

Christie is sponsored by Barb Smith in memory of Gary Smith,  David and Patricia Nye, Tina and James McCroskey, Melford Swanson, and Dave and Nancy Nuzzo. Thank you!

 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.
