Adopted: Lulu

Hi, my name is Lulu and I am a complete sweetheart! Quick Facts: Breed: German Shepherd Dog Gender: Female, spayed Age: 9 year old Size: 60 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Unsure Kids? 12+ ***Lulu is not a CDR dog and has not been evaluated by CDR.*** History My former owner was an older man who lived alone and had become unwell. He did the best he could, but I ended up quite neglected for the past 3 years. For much of my life I lived with a male German Shepherd dog and loved playing with him. We also used to take lots of walks in the woods, which I love! This was a very quiet household with 1 person and 1 other dog. Occasionally my owner’s daughter would come to visit (and I loved her!!!) but overall it was not a very social environment. I have been living…

Adopted: Koda

Hi! I’m Koda and I’m ready for fun, adventure, and love! Quick Facts: Breed: Australian Shepherd/Husky mix Gender: Male, neutered Age: 2 year old Size: 60 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? 12+ History I was found stray in KY and landed in a high-kill shelter, where I quickly became a staff favorite because of how awesome I am with people and how incredible I am with other dogs! Luckily for me, the next thing I knew I was on a long car drive to central NY and into the awesome CDR foster program! Personality I am an incredibly good boy with a lighthearted and joyful spirit–everyone says so! I am a teensy bit shy in new situations, but I warm up quickly and then my fun-loving, super friendly, deeply good-natured and playful personality bursts out! I love being around you and am sooooo happy when you give…

Adopted: Winnie the Pooch

Hello! My name is Winnie the Pooch, I’m a city dog who wants to be a country dog! Quick Facts: Breed: Beagle/Australian Shepard Gender: Male, neutered Age: 2 year old Size: 37 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! ***Winnie the Pooch is not a CDR dog and has not been evaluated by CDR.*** History I was born in New Jersey and was found in a cardboard box in front of an animal shelter with the rest of my brothers and sisters. A sweet couple who live in Queens, New York adopted me thinking that I was a Dachshund… but I kept growing! I’m a very good boy and they have given me the best home and life that they could, sacrificing a lot as I require lots of outdoor time and they have no backyard. Last summer I spent one month in Ithaca, NY living with my…

Adopted: Danny

Hello! My name is Danny, and I am the bestest boy around! Quick Facts: Breed: Chocolate Lab Gender: Male, neutered Age: 7 year old Size: 90 pounds Good with… Dogs? No! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! History I was adopted by my former owners as a little puppy and they have loved me and taken fabulous care of me for the past 7 years. Unfortunately, they have other dogs in the house, and for some reason I just cannot share a home with another dog. I am an incredibly good boy—I am well-mannered, have a gorgeous, loving, amazingly wonderful, affectionate, silly, and sweet personality (I love all people, cats, and children!), but since I keep getting into fights with the other dogs, we all decided that for me (and everyone else) to be happy and safe, I need to find a new home where I will be the only dog in…

Adopted: Max

Hello my name is Max! I am an affectionate, playful young guy! Quick Facts: Breed: Husky Gender: Male, neutered Age: 4 year old Size: 80 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Unknown! Kids? Yes 6+ ***Max is not a CDR dog and has not been evaluated by CDR.*** History I was adopted from the SPCA as a pup, I lived in a home with a couple and their other large dog. Unfortunately they worked a lot so I did not get the attention or exercise that I needed. I gained too much weight and was very lonely, so they gave me to my current family, which is a mom and her 4 year-old kiddo. Personality I enjoy an awful lot of stuff, I am a very happy guy! I love snuggles (my favorite!), getting belly rubs (yum!), getting combed (nice), running (the best!), wrestling (fun!), and walks (whoo-hoo)! I can…

Adopted: Billy

Hi! My name is Billy and I am an outdoors and people-lovin’ Lab! Quick Facts: Breed: Labrador Retriever Gender: Male, neutered Age: 3 year old Size: 90 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? No, sorry! History I am 100% PureBred Labrador Retriever! I was adopted from a breeder near Rochester, NY by a great human family, I grew up with a mom, a dad, two kids, and a couple of cats! I also had a very good Weimaraner friend who lived next door. Even though it made them very sad, my family decided it was best for me to be re-homed (you can read more about that below) so for the past month I’ve been living with my foster mom and two feline foster brothers while I wait for my forever family to find me! Personality Never mind my size, I’m the sweetest, cuddliest, goofiest, snuggliest, loveable guy…

Adopted: Buddy

Hi! I’m Buddy and I’m an incredibly sweet and loving little guy! Quick Facts: Breed: Mini Poodle mix Gender: Male, neutered Age: 8 year old Size: 21 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! History I came all the way from Kentucky and have a sad story to tell. My former owner was elderly and not doing well, and consequently, though she loved me, she didn’t take proper care of me. When she had to go and live in a hospital full-time, I was turned into a shelter, and was in sad shape. My skin and fur was a mess, and I looked like a raccoon with black circles around my eyes from the untreated eye infection that I had probably had for quite some time. Luckily, after hopping a ride on the Doggy Underground Railroad, I joined the CDR foster program and landed in a home with…

Adopted: Harper

Hello my name is Harper! Quick Facts: Breed: Shepherd mix Gender: Male, neutered Age: 1 year old Size: 70 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Probably not Kids? Yes! ***Harper is not a CDR dog and has not been evaluated by CDR.*** History My owner found me at a rescue shelter in N.J. but I am originally from S.C. My mom was a German Shepherd and my Dad…wish I knew! There was Border Collie in the litter and you can see that in my floppy ears and some of my markings. Many people think I have Great Dane in me because I am still young and extremely lean and big! I may have some Lab too and who knows what else? Everyone just says that I’m the perfect mix! My owner has had me for about 9 months and those months have been quite eventful! When I was about 4…

Yes! 4+ ***Maya is not a CDR dog and has not been evaluated by CDR. Maya’s family is only taking applications from people who live within 90 minutes of Ithaca, NY.*** History My current family rescued me from a Newfoundland rescue up near Lake Ontario. I was a wild, untrained young pupster at that point, but they saw how loving and wonderful I was! I’ve been living with them (3 young kids and mom and dad) ever since, and I have grown up so well with their loving care and attention and training! It’s been beyond wonderful for us all to be a family together. But, here is the sad part…mom and dad are no longer living…
