History

My owner, the wonderful woman who rescued me when I was 2 years old, passed away in February. It was unexpected and incredibly sad. We were the best of friends and I was by her side until the end. I was so lost when she died. But then her lovely daughter- who lives here in the Ithaca area–drove all the way out to Arizona where I was living, and brought me back to beautiful Upstate NY so that I could enjoy the fresh air and grass, and also because she wants to find me a wonderful new … Continue reading

Luna is a 7-month old purebred Great Pyrenees pup who weighs about 55 lbs. She belonged to a backyard breeder but was found, on multiple occasions, wandering in the road with her 2 brothers. The owner/breeder bailed them all out several times, but the fine increased every time they were picked up. So the last time, she took Luna’s brothers but left her there.

History

My former owner was an older man who lived alone and had become unwell. He did the best he could, but I ended up quite neglected for the past 3 years. For much of my life I lived with a male German Shepherd dog and loved playing with him. We also used to take lots of walks in the woods, which I love! This was a very quiet household with 1 person and 1 other dog. Occasionally my owner’s daughter would come to visit (and I loved her!!!) but overall it was not … Continue reading

History

I was adopted by my former owners as a little puppy and they have loved me and taken fabulous care of me for the past 7 years. Unfortunately, they have other dogs in the house, and for some reason I just cannot share a home with another dog. I am an incredibly good boy—I am well-mannered, have a gorgeous, loving, amazingly wonderful, affectionate, silly, and sweet personality (I love all people, cats, and children!), but since I keep getting into fights with the other dogs, we all decided that for me (and everyone else) to be happy and safe, I need to find a new home where I … Continue reading

History

I was adopted from the SPCA as a pup, I lived in a home with a couple and their other large dog. Unfortunately they worked a lot so I did not get the attention or exercise that I needed.
