Quick Facts: Breed: Australian Shepard mix Gender: Female, spayed Age: 5 year old Size: 50 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! 8+ years History In the Spring of 2013, a local Central NY dog rescue group rescued me from a high kill shelter in South Carolina when I was 9 months old. 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…

Adopted: Daisy

I am a fun-loving beauty with tons of ​happy ​personality! Quick Facts: Breed: Beagle/Jack Russell mix Gender: Female, spayed Age: 10 year old Size: 18 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Unknown! Kids? Yes! History I’ve been with my foster family for a little while now and even though I missed my previous family at first, I’m embracing this new life. Someone dropped me off at a high-kill shelter in Kentucky and gave the nice people there my name, but no other details. I came with an up-to-date rabies tag, and didn’t show any obvious signs of having been mistreated, but my age put me on “the list.” After a week, Cayuga Dog Rescue saved my life. Thank you, CDR! Personality Want to play? Want to cuddle? I LOVE that! I’m a playful little sweetie with a fun-loving personality, I am bursting with friendliness and kindness and love! I love…

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…

Unsure Kids? 12+ ***Lulu is not a CDR dog and has not been evaluated by CDR.*** History My former owner was an older man who lived alone and had become unwell.

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 a very social environment. I have been living…
