Arthur

Quick Facts: Breed: Plott Hound/Pit Bull mix Gender: Male, neutered Age: 5-6 years Size: 45 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! I love dogs! Cats? Yes! Kids? Probably! 7+! Hello! My name is Arthur and my big smile warms up a room! History I had a very sad life before I came to stay in my foster home.

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 am Ayla (it means “moonlight”), and I am adorable, sweet, and loving! History I am one of the lucky ones, because even though I’ve had a number of very sad losses, and also a lot of physical discomfort, I had a lot of love in my former life in rural KY.

Tragically, he died unexpectedly, which left me orphaned. His parents were able to bring me to live with them on their nearby farm, and they took good care of me for…

Yes! 6+ Hi, I’m Bella, which means beautiful in Italian, and everyone says that is the perfect word to describe my soul! History I was adopted by a wonderful human mom many years ago. We and another older, smaller dog lived together so happily and with so much love until our mom passed away 5 months ago. Her passing was the saddest thing ever.

I got to enter the CDR foster program and am now living in a wonderful foster home which is so much fun, I cannot stop smiling! There is a really…
