King, a puppy mill boy, has spent his life fathering litter after litter.  He is 8 years old and he looks really good, especially for a mill dog, which is probably why he was kept so long.  However, when the miller was done with him, the amish man would not even keep him for a couple extra days until we could make space for him, so we had to quickly get him and squeeze him in before they destroyed him.  He is a bit shy, but not aggressive at all and surely needs a wonderful home for his remaining years.  From his foster mom:  King is starting to trust me; still a bit skiddish but I get it. He loves Maggie (resident Shepherd) and looks to her for guidance & comfort. He is so polite and gentle. Doing well on housebreaking. Loves to nap on the couch & takes his place on his bed in our bedroom at night, after he checks on Maggie. He is playful with other dogs & tolerant of their antics. This boy has a beautiful soul❤️  

King’s requirements:  A home with a secure, fenced yard and another dog is a must.  (King is also fine with the cat in his foster home.)

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 immediately 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 It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day.  Completing an application does not commit you to adopt, but please be sure that you are serious about adopting and have the time and patience to raise a puppy before you apply.

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.

King is kindly sponsored by Meg Thering in memory of Natasha Kailaclass’s cat, Kit. He is also sponsored by Suzanne and former NCCR residents, Tillie Mae and Bron Bron, by Dan Courtine in honor of Brutie, Kelsey Thomas, Marilyn and Jerry Bertges in memory of Libby and by Bette Lou Wisler. Thank you everyone!
