Prince arrived at NCCR on February 1st. According to his original family, he is around 9 months old. Prince knows some basic commands, is most likely housebroken, was not allowed on furniture and slept in his crate. He likes to ride in the car, seems ok with cats and other dogs. Prince is not comfortable with kids as they move to quickly. He likes to play fetch and like any young dog, he has energy that needs to be burned off daily.

Please note: Prince will need a family that gives him time to settle in as he gets very nervous in new situations. It would be best if the potential adopter could come to the Rescue and meet him several times prior to taking him home. Prince was very nervous his first few days with us. He was hesitant when meeting new people and was afraid when you try to leash him, but he allowed us to with no problem and is happy to go out in the yards or for a walk. He warms up especially if you have a treat! Prince may not have had a lot of socialization in his previous home, but he is getting more comfortable and is settling in nicely.

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.
