My days as a puppy mill momma dog are done, I’ve had all the puppies I am going to have and now I just want a home and a lap. I weigh in at around 5 lbs and fit on a lap ever so nicely. My leg was broken while I was in the mill, but they never bothered to take me to the vet to have it fixed so now it has heeled, but it is crooked. The vet says not to do anything more with it as it would be a hard surgery for me and I use it most of the time. I like other small dogs and I am learning how to play with toys, but mostly, I just want to be loved. I will need some help learning how to walk on a leash. A fenced yard would be nice because new things sometimes scare me and I might run. If you think that we could be best friends, call 716 326 7297 and tell them you are inquiring about Pip, the Bichon/poodle. I’ll be waiting.

If you are considering adopting a puppy mill dog, please read: https://resources.bestfriends.org/article/puppy-mill-rescue-dogs-transition-home-life

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 adoptions@caninerescue.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.

Pip is sponsored by Anthony Ricotta Jr., Phillip and Carol Baideme in memory of Sam, Heath Forster, Roberta Gray, Victor and Gloria Armes, Kayme Crowell, Daniel Farnham, Ann Odell and by Meg Thering for Susan and Kevin Felch, Thank you everyone!
