Roma arrived at NCCR on 2/3/24, surrendered when her owner could no longer care for her due to an injury. She is an approximately 1-year-old spayed female Australian Shepherd/Wire Dachshund mix, and she is full grown at around 20 lbs. Roma is very friendly with people, and gets along well with other well-behaved dogs, but reportedly does not care for cats. She does not like to be left alone much, and sometimes barks when she is left by herself; a family that is home most of the time to provide companionship would be ideal. Roma is a busy, active young dog who needs a good amount of daily exercise and activity. She will quickly become bored and frustrated if she isn’t given enough to keep her busy and wear her out each day. She loves her walks, but may chase passing cars!

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.

Roma is sponsored by Kim Joslyn, Ronald and Brenda Cobb Johnson, Kathleen Hatt, Paula E. Stearn and Don and Joanne Pochopin, in memory of Charlottte. Thank you everyone!
