Sami is a Miniature Pinscher mix? who arrived NCCR on 1/21/23 with her friend Teeni.  They were rescued from an out of state shelter where their time had run out. Sami is a 1-year-old spayed female weighing 19 lbs. She is a very friendly, happy dog who just can’t wait to jump into your lap and kiss your face! She may need a little more work on house training, as there are sometimes overnight accidents. Sami and Teenie are quite bonded so a home together would be ideal, but we will consider separating them in the right situation.

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.

Sami is sponsored by Phillip and Carol Baideme in memory of Sam, Heath Forster, Roberta Gray, Victor and Gloria Armes, Ann Odell and by Meg Thering for Susan and Kevin Felch, Thank you everyone!
