Sprite arrived at NCCR on 4/15/22 after being found running stray and brought into the local vet’s office. Since no one claimed her, Sprite is now looking for a forever home to call her own. She is an adult female Chihuahua. Sprite is VERY skittish and frightened with new situations, but she does like to be held. Sprite would prefer a quiet home with a predictable routine and no small children. She gets along with other pets after she settles in.

Her foster mom has this to say about her: “This tiny l’il gal has the BIGGEST personality! She is nonstop energy! Just incredibly happy ALL THE TIME! Follows you doing circles around you, so she would not be safe around older people if they are unsteady on their feet. She needs to be with you, on you, all the time. If she can’t be, she carries on about it. She is not housebroken, so she needs to be crated at night, but she will bark and cry for a while when she is crate. Not a fan of being outside, but will go out for a short time if she is with the other dogs. She knows no commands. She showed fear based aggression toward the other dogs at first, but it was short lived. Since she is so food motivated we will work on basic manners. Seriously a total love, & just energy overload!”

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 adoptions@caninerescue.org. 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.

Sprite is kindly sponsored by Meg Thering in memory of Natasha Kailaclass’s cat, Kit. He’s also sponsored by Suzanne and former NCCR residents, Tillie Mae and Bron Bron, Carol Spring, John and Susan Harrell, Jay and Kimberly Bishop, Kathleen Hatt, Peg Payne, Paula E. Stearn and Don and Joanne Pochopin. Thank you!
