I am an incredibly sweet little girl who is very young at heart, energetic and fun, and has loads of love to give!

I have lived my life very traditionally for a Beagle—hunting rabbits and living in a nice indoor/outdoor kennel–and I have enjoyed it a great deal! My loving owner recently passed away, and folks tell me that I will be entering a new phase of life where I will live indoors, learn all about soft dog beds, cuddling and reading books or watching tv, and going for walks on leash purely for the love of the stroll! It all sounds pretty interesting, … Continue reading

History

I, along with 3 of my Beagle buddies, lived a very traditional former life, as hunting Beagles. Our owners were a very nice older couple– we got to go on occasional rabbit hunting expeditions and we lived full-time in nice indoor/outdoor kennels. Our owners were super nice, but we weren’t indoor pets, so we weren’t exposed to lots of time with people, or all the ways of indoor living (like couches! And watching movies while having snuggle time!). One of our owners sadly passed away and the other has health issues and is not able to take care of us anymore. Three of us already found homes through … Continue reading

Background

I hail from Vestal, NY where I was adopted from the Humane Society into a wonderful family in 2011 when I was 1 year old. I was so grateful to them and when I met my doggy brother, a Lab, we ran and ran, it was so much fun! They had 4 cats and I was great with them all too! I wasn’t OK with strangers and other dogs, though–they made me very nervous. Once I got to know people, I felt comfortable around them. I went to doggie school and worked … Continue reading

Background:

I arrived for the first time in the CDR foster program 2 years ago (at age 2), after my owners split up. Those folks had kept me in a small fenced in outdoor kennel and gave me almost no attention, care, or training, which had been a very sad life for a happy, exuberant, loving, and active dog like me. Luckily, a lovely semi-retired couple adopted me from CDR and that’s where I have been for the past 2 years. They loved me a lot, took me to fun clicker training classes, got me a needed hip surgery, and helped me … Continue reading

Background:

I came all the way from KY, where I was originally in a high-kill, very crowded shelter. I landed in that
scary place when my former owner felt she was not able to care for me anymore. The shelter needed to
make some space (aka put a bunch of us to sleep), so luckily a volunteer lady in the shelter told the great
people at CDR about me. They had a place with a warm bed for me, and I was able to hitch a ride on the
transport to Ithaca!

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 … Continue reading
