This charming little guy arrived at NCCR 2/25/23, rescued from an overcrowded shelter where his time had run out. Duke is an approximately 1 year old neutered male mixed breed weighing about 20 lbs. His breed mix is guessed to include Dachshund & Miniature Pinscher, but may include other breeds, too. Duke is active and curious and loves to investigate his surroundings. He likely will need a little more work on house training in a new home. Duke would love an active family that can give him the exercise, playtime, and enrichment he needs to keep him happy. He likes to be held, but is definitely no couch potato! Duke is not sure how he feels about other dogs – it likely depends on the individual dog. We do not know if Duke has ever seen a cat! He does not like being left alone and will bark at first, but seems to settle down after a while.

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 adoptions@caninerescue.org. 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.
