History

My previous owner, a college student, bought me from a miniature dachshund breeder somewhere in the vicinity of New York City. In addition to being in college, he was working full time, including some weekends and late evenings. I spent a lot of time alone and was very sad and lonely.

He brought me to Ithaca in August, but because no dogs were allowed in his home, I stayed with his friend, a 19-year-old girl, who also … Continue reading

History

I am the most delightful, adorable, sweet, funny, silly, loving, affectionate, and friendly little guy! I used to live in Katmandu, Nepal, on the streets (like a ton of dogs there), and life was awfully hard.

I had no idea how much harder it could get, but then I was struck by a motorbike or motorcar and became paralysed from the waist down. Oh boy, that was really rough. But when faced with challenges, you just kind of figure it out, so I learned to drag myself around pretty well using my front arms! Thankfully, a wonderful Nepal rescue group found me dragging myself … Continue reading

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.

When i arrived to Ithaca, our veterinarian found that I am heartworm positive.  So sad, but wow, so lucky that I landed in rescue and in a town with awesome vets to give me the best treatment possible!  After initial testing, I was brought up to Cornell Cardiology in mid-December for a cardiac ultrasound and chest x-rays, to see how advanced the disease was, and if i was a good candidate for treatment.  It was all good news!  My heart and lungs looked … Continue reading

History

I spent most of my life with a lady who was not able to provide much care for me. She fed me well (too much actually), but didn’t have the resources to take care of my medical issues, and didn’t have the time or energy to devote much to me. Luckily she agreed to surrender me to her relative so I could get into rescue, which is how I ended up in my AMAZING Cayuga Dog Rescue foster home! Holy moly! Life is so good now, and I’m told it will be even better when I find my new forever family!
