This beautiful boy arrived at NCCR on 11/2/23, rescued after being discarded from his former life as a breeding dog. He is an approximately 6-year-old male Welsh Terrier. Doug has a friendly, inquisitive personality, but has not yet been socialized to life outside a kennel. He will need a patient person to help him learn all about his new world and teach him important skills, including house training and basic obedience. Doug is very social with people and seems happy to meet everyone. He has opinions about what he does and doesn’t like and may not be tolerant enough to live with young children. Doug may be friendly with some female dogs, but does not get along well with most other male dogs, in particular ones his own size or smaller. He cannot live with cats or other small pets.

More about the breed: The Welsh Terrier has a typical terrier temperament; happy & lively but can have an attitude. Training for obedience is a long-term proposition and ongoing reinforcement is needed. They are feisty, curious, and like to keep busy. A run around the yard or a leashed walk around the block is insufficient exercise for a Welsh Terrier. If bored, they may cause mischief. Welsh Terrier’s require routine grooming every 2-3 months, as well as frequent brushing to keep their wiry coats healthy.

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.

Doug is kindly sponsored by Suzanne, Tillie Mae and Mimzie in memory of Bron Bron, Steve and Diana Lucas in memory of Zeus, Dan and Amy Courtine in honor of Xander, Holly and Eden, Chelsea Barber and Rebecca Wood. Thank you!
