Zelda arrived at NCCR on 4/1/21, rescued from abuse and abandonment. She is an approximately 2 year old female Bull Dog type mix. Zelda is very friendly toward people, although she may be too strong and active for young children. She is a puller on-leash, so some leash training is necessary to make her a better walking companion. Zelda will likely need a “refresher course” on house training in her new home. She seems interested in playing with some of the other dogs, but she is very strong & “in-your-face”, and may be overwhelming to a smaller or less rambunctious dog. It is suspected that she would not get along well with cats. If you have experience with high-energy dogs and have the patience and ability to provide Zelda with the training and daily exercise she needs, give her a look!

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.

Zelda is sponsored by Robert Tipton, Sandra Pavlock, Jill Reese, Elaine Tschari and Ron and Brenda Johnson, Lucinda Gelsmino, Randy and Debby Ruhland and Will and Cindy Hepfer in memory of Skye and Rosa McDonald. Thank you everyone!
