History

I was born in California, and was adopted from a shelter in the town of Lompoc when I was about a year old. I don’t remember anything about being a little puppy, but I was healthy and happy, and when I went to live on the ranch, those were the happiest days of my life! I had a 10 year-old boy who loved to play with me, a pack of 6 girl dogs who bossed me around (but were nice too), and I lived with cats in the house and out in the barns. I loved tagging along on horseback rides, and chasing gophers and …

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.

History

I was surrendered to a high kill shelter in KY when my family could no longer keep me. So sad in a way, but as it probably wasn’t the most loving home, maybe it was a good thing too! Especially since I avoided being put to sleep (the shelter was SO overcrowded) when Schoolhouse Rescue said they could take me into their rescue program! Whew! That was a close one!

I have been living at Schoolhouse Rescue in the Binghamton area since Spring 2015. I LOVE all of the people who I have met …

History:

I landed in a scary shelter at age 3, and I don’t remember my life before then, so can’t tell you anything about that. That was 7 years ago. Luckily I was adopted by an awesome mom, and I have lived so happily with her and her female dog since (that dog passed away a while ago). Mom loves me to pieces and wishes she could keep me forever, but she had to move from NC to NY suddenly to provide long-term care for an ill relative, and I’m not allowed to stay there. It’s very sad. I had to be kept in the …

Once she met me, she knew I was super special and had the best heart ever, so sent me up to join the CDR foster program! It’s been awesome!
