Background:

I came in as a stray to a very overcrowded, high-kill shelter in Tennessee, where I was going to be put to sleep because I had heartworms. This was a totally curable illness, not contagious, but sometimes in these shelters it’s “one strike and you’re out.” Lucky for me, they said I was just too special and one of their trainers took me under her wing so I could get treatment (I’m all better now!), and then helped get me into a rockin’ CDR foster home!

Hi-hi- hi! I’m so excited to meet you!

Background:

I was found as a stray and landed in an over-crowded shelter in rural KY, where I became a staff favorite, because I was incredibly affectionate, had such zest for life, and unbridled enthusiasm!! Hearing such great reports, Cayuga Dog Rescue rescued me and I made my way up the Canine Underground Railroad (that’s a thing!) to get here and wiggle my way into more peoples’ hearts. I am so excited that they decided to save me—I love getting to know everyone, and really dig the toys, dog beds, and couches that I have been introduced to! It is all so wonderful!

Their family friend and caretaker tried to take care of me, coming twice a day to feed me and walk me in my empty house, but we soon realized I …

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 …

Background:

Well…I’m sorry to say, I did not have a happy or safe early life. I was one of 43 dogs that were kept by a hoarder in a rural town in TN. Lucky for us, the animal control officers found out about the terrible conditions in which we were being kept, and took us all away to the shelter to find new, much better homes. That was back in June of 2013.

As if that wasn’t a terrible enough experience, then the building next to the animal shelter exploded! Seriously! The shelter …
