Clarabella is a new arrival  She is a 10 lb. female,, some type of small wire terrier mixed with either Pekingese or Lhasa Apso judging by her short legs and bowed elbows, maybe some tiny Chihuahua to account for how small she is. She is 2-3 years old. She’s a bit feisty with other dogs and strangers, but once they’re up close she rolls over submissively.  From her foster mom:  She’s a tiny lil girl, very smart & obedient. Not afraid or fearful of bigger dogs  and can hold her own. No CATS please!  She is very loving & loves to be next to you or on your lap. She is pretty good on a leash; rides well in the car and is crate trained. She would be a great pocket companion.

Clarabella is in foster care, she is not currently at the Rescue.

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.
