Thanks to all who have adopted dogs, our rescue volunteers and friends, NCBCRA has placed over 270 dogs into loving homes since our inception in March, 2014. As we conclude our second 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.

TEX is a 7-8 year old 55-pound boy with a sweet personality and BC smarts. He has a medium coat with classic BC markings, loves balls and squeaky toys, walks well on a leash, and is just a kind and gentle spirit. TEX loves his early morning walks with his foster family, calmly waiting for his harness to be put on and patiently waiting his turn to go out the door. Be sure to check out his YouTube video!

TEX shows typical BC herding instincts when he plays with his foster pack mates, and there isn’t a ball that he doesn’t like, although he will give up the catch to the other ball-obsessed BCs in his foster home. He has plenty of energy and likes to run and romp with the group. He has also been a wonderful playmate for a 6-month-old exuberant BC foster puppy, enjoying a friendly wrestle or game of keep away.
