 Videos of some of NCBCRA’s dogs available for adoption

Click on the video camera link at left to watch entertaining videos of some of the the dogs currently available for adoption at NCBCRA. Not all available dogs have videos so be sure to also check out our Adoption Gallery to see them all.

GRACIE is a sweet, tri-colored border collie mix who is approximately five years old. GRACIE has a super soft, medium coat with gorgeous “feathers”.  At 32 lbs., GRACIE is a lot of love and happiness in a smaller package. She’s a “Velcro” dog who loves to be close to her person and is always happy to snuggle. GRACIE is very eager to please and both treat and toy-motivated. At her foster home, she absolutely adores her on-leash morning runs. She has learned the command “ignore” and will now run by less well-mannered dogs, paying no attention to them. GRACIE also really enjoys chasing a ball or toy. GRACIE would very much love to meet you to discuss your future together! Click here to find out more about Gracie.
