Medical

Our veterinarian just found that he is heartworm positive, poor guy! Initial bloodwork suggests that he has mature as well as baby worms in his system, which makes treatment riskier. In order to evaluate the risks more fully, Orion will be seen by Cornell Cardiology on Monday Dec 11th for a cardiac ultrasound and chest x-rays. The findings of these tests will guide the type and pace of heartworm treatment that he will then receive.

Why I am Looking for a New Home

I was rescued from the streets of Tucson, Arizona when I was only 1 month old. I was very skinny and scared, but was nursed back to health by Tucson Cause for Canines. When I was 6 months old, my parents moved to Tucson and adopted me as a companion for their older dog Petunia!

Petunia and I became fast friends, and have shared many exciting adventures and afternoon snuggles together. However, I occasionally feel threatened by having … Continue reading

History

I landed in a high-kill shelter in KY as a stray. Very bad luck for me, as many of the dogs there end up euthanized due to lack of space to house them or resources to care for them. But since I was clearly just the absolute sweetest dog imaginable, the shelter workers reached out to a rescue person in KY who reached out to CDR, and I got rescued! I am so grateful and am passionate about making every day a joyful one, and spreading happiness and smiles everywhere I go!

Personality

I am an extraordinarily sweet and happy girl who is typically pretty calm but … Continue reading

History

My former life was rough and scary and left me quite shy and nervous about new people, new places, and unexpected sounds. Before being rescued, I spent some months chained up to a barn and ignored by the people who were supposed to be my people, and where I was before that was also awful, but I try not to think about it. I am thankful every day that the Cornell vet students who came to the farm where I was chained out, offered to take me from those mean people. And I am thankful that those people didn’t want me, and were … Continue reading

History

I was a part of my family for almost seven years, when my 1st mommy and daddy adopted me from the Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Brooklyn, NY. I made the move to Rochester with them and I have been by their side (even at their wedding!) as they made the transition into becoming parents of two young children. As sometimes happens when the kids come along, their lives changed so much and I ended up being home alone … Continue reading

History

I was found stray in KY and landed in a dismal high-kill shelter, but it was my very good luck that the staff couldn’t stop laughing about my natural fuzzy Mohawk on the top of my head, and my sweet, playful demeanor! They worked hard to save my life…they called their rescue contact and pleaded for me to get saved, and that person called CDR and next thing I knew I was on a long car drive to central NY and into this awesome foster program!
