This handsome guy arrived at NCCR on 2/4/23, surrendered by a concerned Good Samaritan after he was found abandoned on the porch of a home. He is an approximately 8–10-year-old male Staffordshire Terrier. We’re told that he is friendly and good with children and other dogs. He is reportedly house trained, walks pretty well on a leash, and knows some basic commands.  And we have discovered that he knows some tricks too! He will usually come when he is called, and will alert you of visitors. Max is a big sweetheart and he really needs a home to live out his golden years!

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.

Max is kindly sponsored by Sarah Vosz, Dave and Nancy Nuzzo, Lisa and Jason Weaver, Dawn Tunstall and Mark Zafuto, Barbara Nodes-Nokoski and by Dawn Gillian. Thank you!
