Petunia arrived at NCCR on 6/7/23, rescued from a bad situation out of state. She is an approximately 4-year-old female miniature poodle.

Her foster mom has this to say about her:   “Petunia is the sweetest little 7lb Poodle. She is very timid at first but every day she explores new things. Petunia is the perfect snuggle buddy and will never leave your side. She would enjoy having another dog sibling to play with, or would be happy as an only dog. She has had at least two puppy litters in her short life and now she just wants to be your cuddly little baby getting all the love.”

Petunia is in Foster Care. Meet and greets will be arranged for approved applications.

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.

Petunia is sponsored by Kathleen Hatt, Roberta Gray, Debra Beatty, Thomas and Elizabeth Tarpley, Amy Schmidt, Bob and Karen Davis, Jerry and Marilyn Bertges in memory of Mandy, Bob and Trudy Sensel, and Bob and Lorna Barrie. Thank you everyone!
