Rocky arrived at NCCR on 7/19/22, surrendered when his owner could no longer care for him. He is an approximately 6-10 month old male Doberman (mix?). Rocky will be neutered and brought up to date on vaccinations and general veterinary care prior to adoption. We’re told that Rocky is working on house training, but isn’t quite 100% there yet. He knows “sit” and is working on a few other basic commands. Rocky needs to be crated when unsupervised or he will sometimes chew things he shouldn’t. He gets along well with adults and loves children. He may get along with cats and likely gets along with most other dogs, but these things are not certain yet. Rocky loves stuffed toys. As with all puppies, Rocky will require ongoing training, daily exercise, lots of playtime and attention, as well as plenty of patience and love to help him be the best dog he can be!

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.

Rocky is sponsored by Ronald and Brenda Cobb Johnson, Carol Spring and Meg Thering in memory of Klio, beloved companion of Carlos Quintero and Cinzia Mandati. Thank you!
