Nelson was surrendered to NCCR when his owner could no longer care for him. Nelson knows “sit”, is fully house trained, and enjoys leashed walks. He can be a bit of a puller on-leash, so further training will be necessary to help Nelson become a better walking partner. We’re told that Nelson gets along with most other dogs once he gets to know them, likes cats, enjoys rides in the car, and loves a game of “chase” (you chase him!). He does not play fetch and will watch the ball go by with no interest. He has a tendency to “smile”, which can look like a snarl, but Nelson just has a very expressive face!
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
