Astra has been in a foster home raising her litter of puppies, and now that they are all in homes of their own, Astra is hoping to find her special someone. She is an approximately 5-6 year old female mixed breed. Astra is timid of new people at first, and does not care for men. She can be very vocal when she is stressed. Astra would do best in a quiet female home without young children or a lot of visitors. If she is on a regular schedule, her housetraining skills are pretty good.

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.

Astra is sponsored by Daniel Courtine in honor of Shiloh, Mo and Andrew Broadbent in memory of Benny, Amy Peterson in memory of Izzy, Joel and Rebecca Cuthbert, Peg Payne, Nancy DeLand, Kristen Streeper, Tim and Diane Eades and by Meg Thering in honor of her friend Ariella Ellias. Thank you!
