Ruger – Adopted!

Ruger is looking for a family that has lots of time and experience raising a puppy. He was orphaned at around 2 weeks and has been bottle fed but now has become a big boy that can chow down his food with the best of them. As a rule puppies do not go up for adoption until the age of 8 weeks so that their mom can train them to be good pups, however since Ruger does not have a mom, he will be ready for his new family after his first shot at 6 weeks. This little guy is fun and smart but also has an attitude already so he needs someone that is dog savvy!!

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 immediately 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.  Completing an application does not commit you to adopt, but please be sure that you are serious about adopting and have the time and patience to raise a puppy before you apply.

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.
