Roscoe is a 2-year-old dapple/merle Dachshund (mix?) that ended up at a rural county dog pound in OH due to his family being evicted. He’s generally very people friendly, but has been through a lot lately and has been bounced around from place to place before arriving at NCCR, so he is feeling stressed and insecure and can be a little touchy with people he doesn’t know well. Roscoe does best with dogs around his own size. He is a little guy at just 16 lbs. Roscoe will bark at large dogs, as they make him nervous, and will bark when he hears a car pull in or people approaching. He will need a little more work on house training in a new home; Dachshunds can be slow to house train and may seem stubborn – patience and consistency is needed. Roscoe enjoys soft toys and likes to play fetch. He is well behaved for car rides. He has learned to walk well on-leash without too much pulling, unless he sees something exciting that he wants to chase!

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.
