History

I am 100% PureBred Labrador Retriever! I was adopted from a breeder near Rochester, NY by a great human family, I grew up with a mom, a dad, two kids, and a couple of cats! I also had a very good Weimaraner friend who lived next door. Even though it made them very sad, my family decided it was best for me to be re-homed (you can read more about that below) so for the past month I’ve been living with my foster mom and two feline foster brothers while I wait for my forever family to find me!

History

My owner found me at a rescue shelter in N.J. but I am originally from S.C. My mom was a German Shepherd and my Dad…wish I knew! There was Border Collie in the litter and you can see that in my floppy ears and some of my markings. Many people think I have Great Dane in me because I am still young and extremely lean and big! I may have some Lab too and who knows what else? Everyone just says that I’m the perfect mix! My owner has had me for about 9 months and those months have … Continue reading

History

My current family rescued me from a Newfoundland rescue up near Lake Ontario. I was a wild, untrained young pupster at that point, but they saw how loving and wonderful I was! I’ve been living with them (3 young kids and mom and dad) ever since, and I have grown up so well with their loving care and attention and training! It’s been beyond wonderful for us all to be a family together. But, here is the sad part…mom … Continue reading

History

No one knows what my previous situation was, only that I ended up stray and was taken to a very icky, very depressing, high kill shelter in KY. I thought that might be the end of everything for me, but a wonderful KY rescue lady heard about me and said she would take me and get me to a great rescue in NY, and just like that… my life turned around completely! I caught a ride up and joined my fabulous Ithaca-area foster family, and life has never been better!

History

I used to have a family, and lived with other dogs, but my owners ran into hard times, couldn’t feed us very well (I was very skinny) and eventually had to surrender us to their local shelter in Kentucky. That was very sad and also very scary, because I heard a lot of people say that the shelter was overcrowded and that older dogs never get picked for adoption. I just hid my head under my paws and waited for the end to come.

But wow, how life can change on a dime! The shelter staff saw what a total sweetheart I was, and … Continue reading

History

My mother saved me from what she thought was a puppy mill. It was somewhere in PA, but there were lots of dogs that weren’t in great shape and my sister lost an eye. We were living outside in a small pen in the mud. I had worms but we got that taken care of very quickly. I am so lucky she saved me.
