We do require fenced yards in most cases. (It may be possible for an adult or senior
dog to work out fine in a townhouse or condo environment, that have small
enclosures/patio's). We will occasionally adopt to apartments dwellers but only on a
case by case basis. Puppies will not go to homes where they will be left alone for many
hours. Most of our dogs have lived in small cages all their lives and we would prefer for
other methods other than crating be arranged for when the dog is home alone.
All NMDR dogs will be primarily inside dogs - no dogs will live outside.
No NMDR dog will be kept on a chain.
All NMDR dogs will be provided with adequate fresh food and water, clean, dry shelter
when outside, and daily exercise.
All NMDR dogs will be provided with a safe collar with ID tags to be worn at all times.

All adoptive families will provide all medical care and treatment needed by the dog
including but not limited to: yearly medical checkups and vaccines, and preventative
All NMDR dogs will be adopted only as a personal companion and not as a gift,
working animal or guard dog.
All NMDR dogs will be returned to NMDR should it be necessary to find another home
for the dog. NO dog will be given away for any reason.
NMDR assumes no responsibility nor shall they be held liable for any damages caused
by the adopted animal to property, person or other pets. If any medical problems occur
after adoption, NMDR is not liable for any medical bills.
If you have other pets, they must be spayed/neutered if you adopt from us. Your
other pets must be up to date on all vet care (shots and preventatives).
If you are unsure as to whether you can commit to a dog for the rest of its life
(regardless of whether you move, change jobs, or get divorced) then please rethink
your decision to adopt a dog. Adoption is for the rest of the dogs life and our rescued
dogs have already had enough turmoil in their lives.
