Izzy arrived at NCCR on 5/14/21, picked up from the rural hills of West Virginia along with her 3 older puppies, a litter of newborns that were born the day before, and the suspected father of both litters. Izzy is a spayed female mixed breed, approximately 2-3 years old. Her breed mix is guessed to include Retriever, but probably a few other breeds as well. Izzy is very timid and nervous around people, especially those she doesn’t know well. She seems to do very well with most dogs. Izzy was probably never handled or trained at all prior to coming to NCCR, so she will require a patient, calm, and understanding family to help her become the best dog she can be. She would favor a quiet home with a predictable routine, another nice dog to play with and keep her company, and a securely fenced yard.

February 2023 update:  Izzy has been in foster care for the last few months. Her foster mom says, she still is skiddish around people, when you approach her, she gets up and moves, unless you are taking her for a walk. Then she goes to her bed and sits, waiting for you to put the lead or harness on her. She really enjoys her walks.  She likes the other dogs in her foster home and prefers her human is home too;  a home with another dog or two is preferable.  She does not have to be crated.

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.

Izzy is kindly sponsored by Meg Thering in memory of Pete Thering’s dog “Shadow”, Judith Bidwell, Wendy and Joe Santilli and Heath Forster.

Thank you everyone!
