I lived there for two months but I hated it so much; I was stressed out and anxious in my kennel. Thankfully there are some great volunteers who came to visit me and they encouraged my foster mom to take me home, so thanks to the help of Cayuga Dog Rescue I am outta that shelter and living in a warm cozy house…

I was found as a stray puppy by a really sweet guy who lived on a farm. He kept me, loved me, and I had a fine life roaming around the farm with him all day long.
