I’m a cattle dog or cattle dog mix who had been purchased from an Amish Farm. I didn’t like the Farm, it was lonely. After leaving my litter mates with some new people, I was in 3 different homes before I got listed on Craigslist! How confusing for me. I am such a good little pup, so sweet and happy and curious, to be handed off to different people in such a short time period was a lot to try to make sense of. I had no idea who my friends were, or that…

Unknown Kids? 12+ (I like a peaceful home setting) Bo is a super sweet, Hilarious little guy. History I lived with a man for the last 10 years of my life. Nothing bad happened to me there, but not much all that good either. Then my person got a girlfriend and she didn’t like dogs, so my person took me to a high kill shelter in KY where he lived.

Luckily, a wonderful KY rescue person reached out on my behalf to Cayuga Dog Rescue, and put me in a temp foster home until they could have me driven by a team of volunteers up to central NY to join their foster program. I was really unsure and shy when I arrived,…

Quick Facts: Breed: German Shepherd mix Gender: Female Age: 8 months old Size: 50+ pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! (see Cohabitation) Cats? Yes! (see Cohabitation) Kids? Yes! (see Cohabitation) Hello!! My name is Zoe. I am smart, playful, and ready for adventure!! History In mid-March I started being fostered by a professional dog trainer with rescue experience who wanted to help me! She had heard that my then-family, who loved me and were very kind, were too busy with their 4 teenage kids to provide any of the training and daily activity that I need. Plus, the hustle and bustle of their home was just too overstimulating for a young pup like me! They didn’t know what they were going to do and didn’t want to surrender me to a shelter, so thank goodness that a local dog professional stepped up and said she would let me live with her…

Hi, my name is Toby and I am incredibly affectionate, loving and sweet-tempered! History I landed in a high-kill shelter in Kentucky. The shelter didn’t note whether I was found stray or had been surrendered, but the rescue folks are guessing that I had been lucky to have had a nice owner, but that maybe I got lost or maybe he/she died or had to go into a nursing home and there was no one to care for me. I clearly have been treated very well by humans because I LOVE humans, and I show no fears or concerns about people, dogs, or cats. I just smile and wag-wag-wag at everyone! Personality I am silly and sweet and incredibly friendly and very affectionate! I wake up every…
