History

I was owned by some folks who didn’t take good care of me, and since they let me run around free, I kept running away and ending up in the Chenango County ASPCA. Tired of retrieving me from there, they decided to just surrender me to the shelter. It was pretty dangerous that they weren’t keeping me safe, so I’d like to … Continue reading

History

I was adopted as a puppy by a nice older lady. She paid a lot of money for me and I have fancy schmancy papers detailing my lineage, which seems kinda silly to me! She was a nice lady, but when she got too elderly and ill to take care of me, she surrendered me to CDR which has been really cool!

I was first fostered by a very nice lady and her family, and there were loads of other dogs and cats in the house—including some really big dogs which was a very new experience for me. We all got … Continue reading

History

I was found roaming the backwoods of rural KY and was scooped up and turned in by a nice person, who I am sure hoped that family would come looking for me at the shelter. Sadly, no one ever did, and since it was a high-kill shelter, I was in great danger. Luckily the shelter staff noticed that I was the NICEST little dog whose acquaintance they’d ever met, so they contacted the KY rescue lady they knew and she got me out of there and sent me up to join the CDR foster program!

Personality

I LOVE people. Seriously LOVE LOVE LOVE people!! The … Continue reading

Background

I was a homeless girl who got picked up and put into an over-crowded shelter in rural KY. Not a good situation! Luckily a kind rescue lady heard how sweet and wonderful I was, so she contacted Cayuga Dog Rescue and they invited me to join their foster program! Best. Day. Ever!!

The sad news is that I am Heartworm-positive and had extremely painful ear infections in both ears, but the good news is that my Heartworm was in the very early stage (making it super treatable) and CDR said they would get … Continue reading

History

I came from a crowded, rural Kentucky shelter where I was overlooked because of my shyness, which put me in danger of being euthanized. I made the trip to the safety of CDR and my foster family in early October. I still sometimes hide behind the couch or try to fit under the bed when I’m feeling shy or unsure. But once I trust you, I’m happy to come to you for love or playtime.

Personality

I’m super sweet! I like to come find you and lay my head on you. I put my paws up on your lap to see if maybe you’ll … Continue reading

History

Hi my name is Champ and I just turned 10. I have lived with my owner for 9 years and we have had many adventures together. We have lived in a big city, in the country where I could run free and in an apartment near Cornell University. I am very adaptable.

Several times I have lived with other dogs and I enjoyed that a lot. I even lived in California by the ocean with three other dogs. After their work our owners would take us to the beach for hours of running and play. That was an amazing year.

3 years … Continue reading

History

I was owned by some folks in rural KY who kept me outside 24/7. They never spent any time with me, I was out there by myself all the time, it was very sad. With nothing to do, I would dig holes in the dirt to entertain myself (and also to lay in when it was hot). They didn’t like me doing that, and when they took me to the local high-kill shelter to leave me forever, they told the staff that they were tired of filling in the holes I dug, so they were getting rid of me. Sad story, and I was quite scared … Continue reading

History

I landed in a pretty rough, high-kill shelter in rural Kentucky. I was running out of time (you know, we black dogs are always the last to be picked at the shelters), and then they found out I was heartworm positive. Uh-oh. It’s a fatal disease if untreated. For dogs who have families, it’s not so bad. They go to the doctor and get treatment. But for us homeless, family-less dogs, it’s a death sentence. Most shelters don’t have the resources to treat it, so with more homeless dogs than they know what to do with, dogs with medical issues are the first to go. So, … Continue reading
