Handsome arrived at NCCR on 8/13/22, pulled from an overcrowded shelter to give him a better chance. He is an approximately 50 lb. neutered male, around 1 year old. Handsome’s breed mix is a mystery, but is guessed to include Wheaten Terrier or something similar. He is very friendly with people. Handsome does not seem to have had much handling or training, and he has a lot of energy. A family that can provide ongoing obedience training and a good amount of vigorous daily exercise and play time is strongly preferred. More info to come as we get to know him better

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 and if you are interested in getting your dog train, you can visit Spectrum Canine Dog Training.

*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.

Handsome is sponsored by Chelsea Barber, Elaine Tschari, Paula E. Stern, Lisa and Jason Weaver and Matthew Fowler, Diane Mogavero, Don and Joanne Pochopin, John and Susan Harrell, Tom and Betsy White and Wanda Hardy. Thank you everyone!
