Romeo arrived at NCCR on 10/5/23, rescued after being discarded from his former life as a breeding dog. He is an approximately 5-year-old male Lakeland Terrier.

Romeo’s foster mom has this to say about him: “He is very friendly, smart, and a good companion. He wants to be near his person at night and is quite affectionate. Romeo is friendly to other people and dogs. He still needs work on house training. He tolerates baths without any problem, and walks well on a leash.”  Update as of October 18:  So far, he sleeps through the night w/o the doggy wrap and no signs of pee in his crate., loves to walk at a good pace for 45-60 minutes at a time 3x a day, good appetite, great attitude, lovey/dovey, like to cuddle, still confined just to the kitchen and out of crate for 45-60 minutes without accidents in the kitchen., gets along with other dogs, loves people .

If interested, put in your application!  Rome is IN FOSTER CARE. Meet and greets will be arranged for approved applications.

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.
