Quick Facts: Breed: Australian Cattle Dog Gender: Male Age: 12-14 months old Size: 31 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Most! Cats? Not yet tested, sorry! Kids? Yes! 12+ Hi! I’m Jake, and I am a SUPER smart, loyal, and affectionate boy! History and Why I Am Looking for a New Home Rough back story! One very cold night in February, on the shore of Oneida Lake, I think someone just dumped me. Very scary and confusing. I spent the next 36 days running in a 10 mile circle, visiting the same houses over and over, and so hoping that I would find my family again. It was tough times for me,filled with fear, cold, wind, rain, and snow. One man sent out his hunting beagles to “run me back, someone else threatened to shoot me if they saw me again, and I was almost hit by cars more times than…

Zoë

Quick Facts: Breed: Shih Tzu Gender: Female Age: 3-5 years old Size: 12 pounds Good with… Dogs? YES! Cats? Not tested Kids? Yes! 12+ (I’m scared of quick movements) **Zoë has lots of application, hard to believe right? Please hold off for a couple of weeks to apply. Thanks!** Zoë I’m an adorable, joyful, playful but shy little pup looking for a loving home with another dog! History I came from a situation where the people weren’t very nice to me. And while I am absolutely loving learning now that people can be amazingly sweet and kind, I am still quite cautious and will cower or run and hide when humans move too quickly or reach for me (especially over my head). If people let me take my time, watch them from a safe distance, and then come to them when I’m ready, I feel much happier and safer, and…

Sammy

Kids? 6+ My name is Sammy (aka, “Scampers”) and I am a delightful and adorable little guy! History I am the most delightful, adorable, sweet, funny, silly, loving, affectionate, and friendly little guy! I used to live in Katmandu, Nepal, on the streets (like a ton of dogs there), and life was awfully hard. I had no idea how much harder it could get, but then I was struck by a motorbike or motorcar and became paralysed from the waist down. Oh boy, that was really rough. But when faced with challenges, you just kind of figure it out, so I learned to drag myself around pretty well using my front arms! Thankfully, a wonderful Nepal rescue group found me dragging myself around like this, scooped me up, and…

Lilly

Quick Facts: Breed: Border Collie mix Gender: Female, Spayed Age: 7 year old Size: 45lbs Good with… Dogs? Yes Cats? No Children? No Hi! My name is Lilly (aka Lily Bear, Little Bear, and Cutie Pants), and I am ridiculously adorable, sweet, loving, and very smart! Background I was rescued from an overcrowded KY shelter when I was only 4 months old and have been here in foster care with CDR ever since. When I was first rescued by CDR, their nice vets found that I had a previously fractured pelvis (consistent with being kicked, hard) and one of my ears appears to have been ½-cut off with scissors. Clearly, my first few months of life were rough, but you’d never know it, as I am the happiest, sweetest, most adoring and adorable girl around! Personality I am a super friendly, happy, playful and affectionate girl! Everyone always says how…
