Pretty Penny

Penny squarePenny arrived at NCCR on 10/12/19 from an overcrowded shelter where her time had run out. She is a spayed female, thought to be around 6-8 years old.  Penny was adopted in December 2019.  “We kept her name the same. She eats and sleeps good and lets us know when she has to go outside. We are working on a few bad habits she has, like jumping up on the counter, getting into the recycle bin and snapping at the other dogs when she is near one of us and she doesn’t want the other dog to be with us too (She is getting much better with this and realizing we love on her just as much as the other dogs). She is also learning to stay standing when we put her coat on, she would always lay down and roll on her back, lol. Other then that she is sweet, loves to cuddle and go for walks where she catches every scent out there. She loves car rides  We actually think she is more Pointer then Dalmatian!”

Lilly (formerly Lunar) has a new life!

Lunar Lilly squareLittle Lunar came from a home with too many pets.  She was really shy when she first arrived at NCCR, but gradually came out of her shell.  From her family: “We changed her name to Lilly and she responds well to her name change. She eats well, sleeps well, is pretty much house trained she had a few accidents at first but expected.  Lilly is very alert when she sees another dog or cat loves to run from bedroom to kitchen. Me and my wife love her very much,  she fills the emptiness we had after losing our dog in October.  Thank you!”

Lily was adopted in December 2019.

Daisy and her new feline friend!

Daisy still DaisyDarling Daisy arrived at NCCR on 10/19/19 from an overcrowded shelter where her time had run out. She was adopted in November 2019. Her family writes:  “I’m very happy to say that she is doing great. She gets along very well with our other pets. We have two older dogs, but her best friend , is our cat , Kwazi. Their favorite game is playing hide and seek around our couch. Daisy is very good with our grandchildren and with visitors that come to our house. I credit her stay at your foster home, to her being so social.  She is a perfect fit for our family. We hope that our positive words will encourage our friends , that are thinking about adoption, to consider adopting from NCCR.”

Agatha is now Bailey!

Agatha squareBeautiful Agatha, now Bailey, was rescued along with her sister Christie 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.  They were wild and crazy girls on arrival, but little by little they settled in and before long Bailey was chosen.
Her family writes, “Thanks for checking on Agatha now we call her (Bailey), She is doing very well now, at first we had some trouble with her and our Golden Retriever getting along, there was some conflict. But now they are “best friends” and a lot of playing, tug of war, fetch and loves going outside to play and run. She is a smart girl and we just love her so much, such a good addition to our family!!  Thank you so much for all you do at NCCR.”
Bailey was adopted on December 20, 2019.

A new name and a new life for Xena!

Esme for webXena (formerly Esme)  is a French Bulldog, a puppy mill girl, saved from the life of a puppy mill dog.  Her family writes:  “We changed her name to Xena, she’s a little warrior princess. She’s sleeping eating and getting along great. She’s house trained already and adjusted well. She gets a few shy moments around others, nothing that seems a threat to herself or others. Xena and Zeus are like best friends( neutered male french bulldog),she loves playing with him and snuggling up on the couch and watching TV. My daughter is doing a school project on puppy Mills and how Xena has came alive with love and attention.”

Xena was adopted in November 2019.

This handsome fellow was adopted in 2018.  His “mom” is a runner and Chesney runs with her when she’s training. His family thinks he’s a great dog and they love him to pieces!

 

Jack (formerly Larry)

LarryLovable Larry arrived at NCCR on 11/16/18, along with his siblings, Moe and Carly. We are told the dogs were given to an Amish family, most likely for breeding purposes.
Larry, now named Jack! was adopted on December 15th.  His family tells us, “Jack has settled in well. He is happy all the time and gets along well with kids and other adults. Our 13-year old lab Shadow tolerates him but Jack wishes she was more playful. He and our 3-year-old grandson wear each other out. Jack loves walks and is happiest when he is in a room with us. He loves  to chew on his elk horn or chase his green squeaky ball.
Overall he seems to have adjusted well! Thank you for helping us find a home for him!

Tucker

Tucker collageTucker was rescued from a puppy mill where he had lived for all of his 7 years.    He was adopted in September 2019 by a family who came quite a distance to adopt him.  His family writes shortly after his adoption, “We are in love!! These are Tucker‘s new brothers, Oliver and Baron.  He’ll
always be Tucker, and we are learning so much about Malamutes.  I think Tucker would adjust anywhere, he’s quite amiable.”  In December we received this message: ” Merry Christmas from our lovebug Tucker!! We are all so in love with him!” And we couldn’t be happier for Tucker!

Nelly

Nelly collage

Nelly was adopted in early December 2019.  From her family: “Nelly is doing great! She LOVES to play outside in her pen with our daughter. She tolerated many people over at our house for a birthday party her 1st weekend home! She is great with our daughter and just wants to say “hi” to everyone who comes over. She rides well in the car,  taking trips to Petsmart but gets overly excited/overwhelmed by everything in the store.The only negative is she has some separation anxiety or boredom when alone, but other than that, she’s great!”
