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 home from among the dog loving community…

Cats? Yes! Kids? 6+ History I spent most of my life with a lady who was not able to provide much care for me.

Kids? 14+ ***Sasha is not a CDR dog and has not been evaluated by CDR.*** History My family adopted me from the Tompkins County SPCA two years ago; I was two years old at the time so I’m pretty sure I’m almost four years old. The SPCA was very scary for me and I barked and growled at everyone while in my room. When I met my people in a neutral area of the facility, they sat on the floor and were given treats to share with me and soon I was coming to them and letting them pet me. Then they got a toy and threw it for me and I was in love. When they…

My name is Dahlia (Dolly for short!) and I am the sweet-sweet-sweet! 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!

At the time, my current family was fostering dogs for the rescue group, and took me in as one of their foster dogs. I got along very well with their 4 year old male dog. We play wrestled, chased each other around the yard, and took turns fetching the ball. After a few weeks, my family decided to adopt me. I am about 5 years old now, and have had a pretty pleasant…

Someone dropped me off at a high-kill shelter in Kentucky and gave the nice people there my name, but no other details.

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 to hand me…
