Hi-hi- hi! I’m so excited to meet you!

Background:

I was found as a stray and landed in an over-crowded shelter in rural KY, where I became a staff favorite, because I was incredibly affectionate, had such zest for life, and unbridled enthusiasm!! Hearing such great reports, Cayuga Dog Rescue rescued me and I made my way up the Canine Underground Railroad (that’s a thing!) to get here and wiggle my way into more peoples’ hearts. I am so excited that they decided to save me—I love getting to know everyone, and really dig the toys, dog beds, and couches that I have been introduced to! It is all so wonderful!

Sadly, one of them passed away a few years ago and the other passed away this year, leaving me an orphan in my senior years. Their family friend and caretaker tried to take care of me, coming twice a day to feed me and walk me in my empty house, but we soon realized I …

Background

I hail from Vestal, NY where I was adopted from the Humane Society into a wonderful family in 2011 when I was 1 year old. I was so grateful to them and when I met my doggy brother, a Lab, we ran and ran, it was so much fun! They had 4 cats and I was great with them all too! I wasn’t OK with strangers and other dogs, though–they made me very nervous. Once I got to know people, I felt comfortable around them. I went to doggie school and worked …

Background:

I arrived for the first time in the CDR foster program 2 years ago (at age 2), after my owners split up.

Luckily, a lovely semi-retired couple adopted me from CDR and that’s where I have been for the past 2 years. They loved me a lot, took me to fun clicker training classes, got me a needed hip surgery, and helped me …

Well…I’m sorry to say, I did not have a happy or safe early life. I was one of 43 dogs that were kept by a hoarder in a rural town in TN. Lucky for us, the animal control officers found out about the terrible conditions in which we were being kept, and took us all away to the shelter to find new, much better homes. That was back in June of 2013.

As if that wasn’t a terrible enough experience, then the building next to the animal shelter exploded! Seriously! The shelter …
