The volunteers have been working with Prince. See his latest videos here:

Prince was picked up after being found running stray on multiple occasions. After being picked up by the Dog Control Officer a second time, he made his way to NCCR on 2/1/21. According to his original owners, Prince was approximately 10-11 months old at the time of surrender, mostly house trained and crate trained, and knows basic commands. He was not allowed on the furniture, slept in his crate at night, enjoyed car rides, seemed to do ok with some other dogs, but was not good with small children. He has been noted to have significant resource guarding behavior/“food aggression” toward other dogs, and toward people. He likes to play fetch, chew on his toys, and has a lot of energy to burn. Prince takes a while to settle into new situations, and may growl or snap out of stress or fear, especially in unfamiliar places and with people he isn’t comfortable with. The right family will have substantial experience with dogs and a solid understanding of canine behavior and body language (Prince is not for a first time dog-owner!), lots of patience and understanding while he settles in (this can take several weeks to several months), and the time and energy to train and exercise a young, active dog.


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.

Prince is sponsored by Julie Rabbit, Karen Larkin, Sandra Pavlock, Keith and Heidi Fowler, Joe and Kate Greulich in honor of Sam and Sarge, Kayme Crowell, David Grayson, Anne Odell, Bob and Trudy Sensel and Melford Swanson. Thank you everyone!
