History

I am the most delightful, adorable, sweet, funny, silly, loving, affectionate, and friendly little guy! I used to live in Nepal, on the streets (like a ton of dogs there), and life was hard.

I had no idea how much harder it could get but then I was struck by a motorbike or motorcar and became paralyzed from the waist down. It was really rough. But when faced with dire circumstances, you just kind of figure it out, and I learned to drag myself around pretty well using my front arms! Thankfully, a wonderful Nepal rescue group found me dragging myself around … Continue reading

History

My owner, the wonderful woman who rescued me when I was 2 years old, passed away in February. It was unexpected and incredibly sad. We were the best of friends and I was by her side until the end. I was so lost when she died. But then her lovely daughter- who lives here in the Ithaca area–drove all the way out to Arizona where I was living, and brought me back to beautiful Upstate NY so that I could enjoy the fresh air and grass, and also because she wants to find me a wonderful new … Continue reading

Medical

When i arrived to Ithaca, our veterinarian found that I am heartworm positive.  So sad, but wow, so lucky that I landed in rescue and in a town with awesome vets to give me the best treatment possible!  After initial testing, I was brought up to Cornell Cardiology in mid-December for a cardiac ultrasound and chest x-rays, to see how advanced the disease was, and if i was a good candidate for treatment.  It was all good news!  My heart and lungs looked … Continue reading

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 to share … Continue reading

Hello! My name is Chloe! I’m an incredibly sweet, affectionate, (but shy/scared) Aussie mix girl!

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 happy … Continue reading
