Phoebe arrived at NCCR on 9/2/22 after being found roaming stray. She appeared to have had puppies recently. Since nobody came forward to claim her, Phoebe is now looking for a forever home of her own. She is a very friendly adult female Pitbull (mix?), thought to be between 2-4 years old. She has been spayed and brought up to date on vaccinations. Phoebe seems to do fine around other dogs, but may be too strong for smaller or older dogs. Cats are unknown to her, but Phoebe has a high prey-drive and will chase and kill small animals like squirrels and rabbits, so a home without small pets is required. Phoebe has allergies, although the particular thing(s) she is allergic to is unknown; it is possible that she may require medication and/or a special diet to reduce her symptoms – we are working to figure out the cause. She does not like loud noises, which trigger her to chase her tail in circles as a coping behavior. A quiet home with a predictable routine would suit her best. She loves to play with toys, go for walks, and enjoys snuggling on the couch, too!

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.

Phoebe is sponsored by Chelsea Barber, Elaine Tschari, Paula E. Stern, Lisa and Jason Weaver and Matthew Fowler, Diane Mogavero, Don and Joanne Pochopin, John and Susan Harrell, Tom and Betsy White and Wanda Hardy. Thank you everyone!
