Honey and her puppies arrived at NCCR 7/8/23, rescued from an overcrowded shelter that ran out of room for them. She is a young adult female Boxer mix. Honey will be available once she has been spayed in early October (she can be placed in a foster-to-adopt home with an approved application prior to her spay procedure).

Her foster mom had this to say: “Honey is a sweet lady. She LOVES my 14 y/o daughter and is friendly with my son who is 10. Seems very intimidated and fearful of most men. She definitely wanted to eat our Guinea pigs, chickens, geese, and turkeys – she seemed pretty prey driven, which fits, since we were told that she doesn’t get along with cats. She is great on car rides, seems to enjoy them. Likes to go for walks, be outside, and enjoys wading in the pond. Very playful, plays with toys, likes to carry around feathers and sticks. She chewed on my tie out stake while we were sitting by the pond, so needs something to keep her busy to stay out of trouble. She displayed resource/food guarding toward her own puppies, but seemed perfectly fine with me handling or moving food and/or toys. She is completely potty trained, had no accidents while here at all, would go right out and pee and poo. Doesn’t appear to be super food-motivated, but liked a milk bone every now and again.”

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.
