Why I am Looking for a New Home

I was rescued from the streets of Tucson, Arizona when I was only 1 month old. I was very skinny and scared, but was nursed back to health by Tucson Cause for Canines. When I was 6 months old, my parents moved to Tucson and adopted me as a companion for their older dog Petunia!

Petunia and I became fast friends, and have shared many exciting adventures and afternoon snuggles together. However, I occasionally feel threatened by having … Continue reading

History

I landed in a high-kill shelter in KY as a stray. Very bad luck for me, as many of the dogs there end up euthanized due to lack of space to house them or resources to care for them. But since I was clearly just the absolute sweetest dog imaginable, the shelter workers reached out to a rescue person in KY who reached out to CDR, and I got rescued! I am so grateful and am passionate about making every day a joyful one, and spreading happiness and smiles everywhere I go!

Personality

I am an extraordinarily sweet and happy girl who is typically pretty calm but … Continue reading

History

In the Spring of 2013, a local Central NY dog rescue group rescued me from a high kill shelter in South Carolina when I was 9 months old. At the time, my current family was fostering dogs for the rescue group, and took me in as one of their foster dogs. I got along very well with their 4 year old male dog. We play wrestled, chased each other around the yard, and took turns fetching the ball. After a few weeks, my family decided to adopt me.

I am about 5 years old now, and … Continue reading

Chloe

History and Current Situation

Chloe’s former life must have been rough, as it has left her feeling quite shy and anxious when meeting strangers and when confronted with new sights or sounds. We know that she spent some months chained up to a barn and ignored by her most recent owners, but assume that her life prior to that was also scary and lacking in love and security.

Chloe has been in a wonderful CDR foster home for the past few months, and is finally starting to feel safe. When she first came to our foster program, she hid in the back of her (open) crate and … Continue reading

I was found when I was around a year old and brought to the SPCA in Ithaca, where the kind folks there discovered I already knew some basic commands.

Unfortunately, my parents split up and I ended up with daddy, who took great care of me but … Continue reading
