What is the probability that a family doctor would sign a DNR-CC order for a 25 year old without any serious or terminal medical condition?

In brief: Low...

a 25 year old healthy person would have a reasonable chance of being resuscitated in the event of cardiac or respiratory arrest so the doctor would likely counsel this person and hopefully get the person to agree to a resuscitation attempt.
But, it depends on the circumstances and a discussion between the patient and the doctor would need to take place to arrive at the best solution! Good luck!
