Izzy arrived at NCCR on May 14, 2021, picked up in West Virginia along with her 3 older puppies, a litter of newborns that were born the day before and the suspected father of both litters.  Izzy is timid and nervous around people that she doesn’t know well, so it will take some time and patience for her to gain confidence. She does do wonderfully with most dogs however.  Izzy was probably never handled or trained at all prior to coming to NCCR, so a calm and understanding family will make a big difference for her.  She would favor a quiet home with a predictable routine, preferably with another nice dog to play with and keep her company.

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 adoptions@caninerescue.org. 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.

Izzy is kindly sponsored by Meg Thering in memory of Pete Thering’s dog “Shadow”, Judith Bidwell, Wendy and Joe Santilli and Heath Forster. Thank you!
