Max arrived at NCCR on 4/13/22, surrendered when his family did not have enough time to properly care for him. He is an approximately 6 year old recently neutered male Long-Haired German Shepherd. We’re told that he is house trained and very friendly with everybody. He does not like to be left alone too much, and can get himself into trouble if he isn’t crated while unsupervised (getting into the garbage, chewing things he shouldn’t, etc.). Max reportedly does fine while crated. He knows basic commands and is generally well behaved. Max needs a new home where he can get the exercise and attention he needs. A family that is home much of the time, and that has the space for a big dog to run around, is strongly preferred.

More info to come as we get to know him better.

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 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.

Max is sponsored by Anthony Ricotta Jr., Fredonia Middle School Art Club Service Learning Project, Phillip and Carol Baideme in memory of Sam, Heath Forster, Roberta Gray, Victor and Gloria Armes, Kayme Crowell, Daniel Farnham and Ann Odell. Thank you everyone!
