Bear arrived at NCCR on 9/29/22, surrendered when he became too large to travel by air with his family, who did not want to transport him in cargo several times each year when they travel between homes. Bear is an approximately 11 month old neutered male Beagle. He is reportedly house trained, crate trained, will walk on a leash, and is fine to leave unsupervised at home if he has limited access to things he could chew up. We’re told that he is good with people, including kids, and that he likes other dogs, but not cats. He has demonstrated some resource guarding with food, so he needs to be fed separately from other dogs and care should be taken around children with food. Bear loves to chew his toys, chase a ball, and go for walks.

If Beagles are your breed of choice and you have the time to make sure Bear gets plenty of daily exercise, why not fill out an application?  Arrangements to meet him will be made for approved applicants.

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 immediately 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.  Completing an application does not commit you to adopt, but please be sure that you are serious about adopting and have the time and patience to raise a puppy before you apply.

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.

Bear is kindly sponsored by Gracie Deike, Barb Smith in memory of Gary Smith, Dan Courtine in honor of Amy Peterson, David and Patricia Nye, Tina and James McCroskey, Melford Swanson and Craig Cassaday.
