Available Dogs

Duchess – 9 Year Old Female

 Duchess is a very sweet girl, we are estimating her age to be around 9.  Duchess came to us after her owner passed away. She is a very mellow dog and so far seems to be okay with people and other dogs. She will bark a few times if she doesn’t know you, but warms up quickly. Duchess is a little overweight and is now on a diet. Duchess has a very thick coat of fur. She is a beautiful girl and we can’t wait to get to know her better. 


Available dogs with {Adoption Pending} are in their 30 day trial period at their new  homes.

Smiley – 5 Year Old Male – {Adoption Pending, May 2019}









Aussie – 1 1/2 Year Old Male {Adoption Pending May2019}

Aussie is a 1 1/2 year old purebred Australian Shepherd. He was born May 30, 2017.

He loves people and gets along with dogs as long as toys are not involved. Aussie loves to play Frisbee and ball, he can catch it and will bring it back to you. If another dog wants to join into the play, Aussie does get overprotective of his toys. Aussie is a very energetic and active boy. He needs a family who can devote plenty of time in exercising him. He loves to go for walks, runs and of course play fetch.

Aussie is currently trained on the underground fence. He does very well with this. We think he would be able to learn boundaries of a new underground fence, without difficulties. Aussie would do best with a fence.

Aussie is neutered and up to date on all of his vaccinations, he is also microchipped.
Aussie spent two weeks last year at a training and obedience school. He is trained with words and hand signals. Currently he can sit, lay down, stay, and shake hands. He can even play dead, although this is not done every time you ask. These will be taught to whoever is lucky enough to adopt this boy.

Aussie travels very well in the car with a seatbelt restraint. He is also kennel trained. Aussie can also learn boundaries within your home. He currently knows what rooms are acceptable for him to be in, he does need some reminders since he loves his people so much he wants to follow you.

Aussie is tri-colored and would make an excellent family dog. He is definitely a trainable dog and would excel in agility or any other competitive sport. We think he may do best as an only dog due to his reactivity to other dogs playing with his toys. He may work out if you have a current dog with no interest in playing ball ball or frisbee. This issue can be worked on with time and patience. We would suggest a trainer to assist in this.

About the dogs in our care:

Adult dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated for DHLPP and rabies, heartworm tested, micro chipped for identification.  They may be treated for fleas and de-wormed. They are also treated for any illness or injury they might have when they arrive to NBCR. Dogs are given monthly heartworm preventive and treated monthly with flea/tick preventative during flea/tick season. We feel giving heartworm preventative s important due to the region in which we live.  To learn more about heartworms in dogs and why it’s important to use preventative, please visit the American Heartworm Society.
