When Buster first arrived he hid behind the couch and in corners. We had to force him out the house to go on walks. When he walked, he walked close to the ground and his tail glued to his butt. Wellll…

Buster now wags his tail outside and sprints for the door because he loves walks. He is still skiddish outside when it comes to loud sudden noises and people walking to close by. He’s so friendly and underneath his shyness is a big lover. He is mostly potty trained but he does have a pee accident from time to time. He loves shoes, he has never chewed a pair but he will move them all around the house (too funny). He will lay in the bed for cuddles but he prefers to sleep in his dog bed in his own private corner. He loves treats but he prefers you set them in front of him rather than him take them out of your hand. He lives with a loose rabbit, a dog, two cats and two turtles and gets along with them all. He is nervous on car rides but he will sit their calmly (he’s been on four 6 hour long car rides). He will lick your arm but doesn’t give kisses typically.

Buster needs a home with another canine companion and preferably a fenced yard.  I don’t think he would be relatively close to this much improvement, had he not had my Dog. Buster is about 29 lbs. so a companion his size will be better. He is terrified of new people but if you constantly show him love and affection I promise he will come around and be that perfect dog. He loved the baby voice so just use that and he’ll become attached and it’ll take the ease off of his stress. He does well around children but the loud rough children might cause him to hide so maybe home without small children.

Buster is in foster care; a meet and greet will be arranged 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 adoptions@caninerescue.org. 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.

Buster is sponsored by Robert Tipton, Sandra Pavlock, Jill Reese, Elaine Tschari and Ron and Brenda Johnson, Lucinda Gelsmino, Randy and Debby Ruhland and Will and Cindy Hepfer in memory of Skye and Rosa McDonald. Thank you everyone!
