Hera was found in a cemetery in the Midwest with her tiny puppies, barely a few ounces, in a hole.  They were rescued and transported to NCCR.  Hera appears to be a tri colored mini Dachshund.  She has been an excellent momma to her tiny babies.  She acts fierce at first as many very small dogs do to present a tough exterior but once she knows you, she is a loving lap dog at under 15 lbs.  She is house trained and so far does not get into things that she shouldn’t.  We estimate her age to be between 18 and 24 months.  She gets along with other dogs once introduced to them.

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.
