Brownie arrived at NCCR on 3/20/21, pulled from an overcrowded shelter to give her a second chance. She is a spayed female Chihuahua mix, thought to be around 2 years old. Brownie is timid with strangers, but warms up once she has a chance to get comfortable. She can be quite vocal at times. Brownie may need to brush up on her house training skills in a new home, although she is doing pretty well with it most of the time. She loves to run around in the grass, and is a very active girl who enjoy getting plenty of exercise and activity every day. A home with another friendly dog or two is preferred.


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.

Brownie is sponsored by Leanne DiNicola, 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!
