They call me Miss Congeniality, but my real name is DANCER. I am only 8 months old and I get along with dogs of all sizes and love people. I have a very active mind and love to learn. I like to go for walks and walk nicely on a leash. I know sit, down, and am comfortable in a crate or kennel for sleeping and riding in the car. I'm pretty quiet and rarely bark. But I'm no couch potato. When you are ready to go, so am I. I particularly like hiking, bicycling, or a rousing game of tug or catch. And I LOVE water. Swimming is my thing. I'm almost ready for my first dock diving competition and plan to try out for a swim race. I might enjoy paddle boarding or surfing, because wobbly surfaces don't bother me at all!  Click/tap here to find out more about Dancer.

Thanks to all who have adopted dogs, our rescue volunteers and friends, NCBCRA has placed nearly 400 dogs into loving homes since our inception in March, 2014. As we conclude our third year of service, we ask you to consider making a donation to assist in next year’s efforts to bring as many dogs as we can into rescue and help find them forever homes. If you have any questions on using the Donation Tree, do not hesitate to email us.  Thank You.

All the Dogs

So many, so many to name all, we heal them, care for them, bid them a fond farewell; such simple needs really; a warm bed, a friendly nod, perhaps an old ball.
