Jesse James (JJ) is one spunky little puppy who is always ready to play and wrestle! JJ enjoys running and playing outside. JJ gets along very well with other dogs and young kids. He also has THE softest fluffy fur. JJ would do best in an active household with another dog and a fenced in backyard to call his own! JJ is still working on house training, but he aims to please his people so he will pick it up quickly. He has finished all of his puppy shots and is very ready to have his own family to spoil him!

JJ’s two-toned coat is perfect for the yin and yang of his personality. This extra floofy, cow-patterned puppy is a mix of chill energy and loving playfulness. One of his favorite ways to “chill” is by finding a cool spot on the bare floor to stretch out and sleep with his belly on the cool surface, which he will do any and everywhere a cool temp is found. But he’s always down for a good cuddle session, too, or playtime with Luther and some puppy toys. Mealtime is fun time and he and his littermates are all eating well and mostly cooperatively. :D Jesse James balances the toughness of his namesake with the cuddliness of the fuzz ball he looks like.

On October 2, these pups will make their debut at Pet Supermarket in Burlington from 11-2pm.

NOTE: If the dog appears on this site, he/she is still available. If you are interested, please apply online:

The adoption fee for puppies is $175. They are dewormed, up to date on vaccinations and will come with a spay/neuter voucher as well as a microchip voucher. Adopters will need to ensure the second and third booster shots are done when needed (usually 11-12 weeks and again at 15-16 weeks) as well as rabies which can be done between 16-20 weeks. Our rescue stays in touch with adopters to help with any training support as well as to ensure that all vetting is completed for puppies.

Please note: ALL puppies need regular one on one attention from the family. They need to be socialized, potty trained, played with and learn the structure and rules of the home. They cannot be left more than a few hours at a time. If your work keeps your away from the house for more than 4 hours of the day, a puppy is not the best pet option for you or your family. Older dogs can stay alone for a longer period of time, especially if they have another pet to keep them company. Dogs left alone for too long quickly become stressed, depressed and anxious which leads to destructive and inappropriate behaviors. This is not a happy combination for anyone. We adopt out our rescue dog to be long term members of your family so we have to take all these factors into consideration when reviewing applications.

About Old North Canine Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Old North Canine Rescue (ONCR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all volunteer organization comprised of people who believe the world is simply a better place with dogs in it! Serving Alamance and other surrounding counties, we are dedicated to reducing the number of dogs in county shelters by providing the foster and adoption services of shelter pets and networking shelter dogs. We are dedicated to reducing the number of owner surrenders to the shelter through our Pet Helpline program, education about heartworm disease and prevention, referrals to community resources, and behavioral training and assistance for owners who are considering surrendering their pet, and matching people and pets through our Canine Connection program.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter or office location. Old North Canine Rescue is a network of volunteers and all dogs live in homes with foster families. Approved adopters can meet dogs at their own home during a home visit. All others interested in meeting our dogs can find them at the following monthly adoption events:

The first Sunday of each month, we are at Pet Supermarket in Burlington, NC from 11-3

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adoption, please fill out an application online, or email us at for more information! If you are looking for another dog you don’t see listed, please check out our Canine Connection program – which will match homeless dogs with adopters! All dogs are fully vetted (spay/neuter, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested, on heartworm and flea/tick preventative and microchipped). Our dogs all live in foster homes after being pulled from shelters or surrendered to our organization. Dogs over 6 months of age are $150 and puppies are $175.

The adoption process for ONCR dogs is as follows:

*your application is received and reviewed
your references checked
*a home visit is conducted to meet the family and see where the dog will be living
*meet & greet with the dog (this can be done at same time as home visit)
*all adoptions begin with a two week trial (the check for adoption fee not cashed until trial period is over)
adoption finalized!
*Happy Tails!

**Please note: We often receive several applications for each dog we have. This is especially true for puppies. Because we are an all volunteer group, not every application will be able to receive a home visit. If the application doesn’t indicate the family would be a good fit for that particular dog or puppy, one of our adoption coordinators will contact you to discuss other dogs that may be a better match. There are often applications from locations that we simply don’t have the time or resources to be able to conduct a home visit, especially quickly. If at all possible, we will do our very best. We try to have volunteers in areas within 2 hours of Burlington and Alamance County. With also work with other rescues that will sometimes do home visits for us. Thank you for your understanding.
