Jem – Available Soon

**After Jem’s time on the run, she is back in her foster home!!

Let me introduce myself to you right here because I am too shy to do so in public. My name is Jem, I’m a West Virginia gal with a slightly southern bark. My two brothers and I have lived outside for all of our 6 months and didn’t have anyone spend time with us so we are really unsure about humans. What I need is someone with a lot of time and patience to help me adjust to this new lifestyle of being inside and having people actually touch me and teach me all the things that a pup should know, like walking on a leash, running to greet my person. I will be available soon for that lucky someone that wants to help me have a wonderful active life.  She needs a family that will allow her to get comfortable at her own pace. Please be sure that you have the time and energy for a young dog, the ability to provide appropriate ongoing training, and are able to provide a permanent, life-long home (13 years +) before applying.

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.
