Introducing Abby!  Abby is very sweet and is pretty laid back. She gets along with other dogs and she likes to be near you. Loves all her toys. I think any home is ideal for her. She’s the perfect size! Abby does well on a leash and in the car. She loves her toys, especially those hard Nyla bones to chew on. She does not chew or get into anything she’s not supposed to. She does have some minor issues with house breaking. You just have to keep an eye on her. It’s much better now but I notice sometimes she will have a per accident over night. Even when I let them out right before bed. I have started to crate her at night and she doesn’t go in her crate. I put lots of toys in there because she will get bored and chew blankets. Does Abby sound like the dog for you? If so put in your application!

If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an  Adoption Application.  *After you have completed your application, you will get a confirmation that we have received your application. It takes a lot of time to process the applications, so we ask for your patience while we do so. If you see that the dog you were interested in has been adopted it means there were many applications for that dog and we did not get as far as processing your application before a home was found. We welcome you to apply again if you see another dog that interests you.   If you have a question, please email your question to It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day.

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.
