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 … Continue reading

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!

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 … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

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.

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 … Continue reading
