Poppy has had a tough start in life, but she is settling in at NCCR and really enjoys the attention she receives  She is a bit timid still and will need patience and TLC while she adjusts to her  surroundings once she is adopted.  She needs a home with another dog, as this can provide her with companionship and support.  Poppy had lived with Abe, who is also available for adoption.  She is not yet house trained, but she’s working on it,  so it will be important to establish a consistent routine for her and provide plenty of positive reinforcement for good behavior.

Overall, Poppy is a sweet and loving dog who just needs a little extra care and attention to help her thrive. With time and patience, she will likely become a wonderful companion for her new family.

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.

Poppy is sponsored by Leanne DiNicola, Daniel Courtine in honor of Shiloh, Mo and Andrew Broadbent in memory of Benny, Amy Courtine in memory of Izzy, Joel and Rebecca Cuthbert, Peg Payne, Nancy DeLand, Kristen Streeper and Tim and Diane Eades . Thank you!
