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 … Continue reading

Background:

I arrived for the first time in the CDR foster program 2 years ago (at age 2), after my owners split up. Those folks had kept me in a small fenced in outdoor kennel and gave me almost no attention, care, or training, which had been a very sad life for a happy, exuberant, loving, and active dog like me. 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 … Continue reading

Background:

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 … Continue reading

Background

I was rescued from an overcrowded KY shelter when I was only 4 months old and have been here in foster care with CDR ever since. When I was first rescued by CDR, their nice vets found that I had a previously fractured pelvis (consistent with being kicked, hard) and one of my ears appears to have been ½-cut off with scissors. Clearly, my first few months of life were rough, but you’d never know it, as I am the happiest, sweetest, most adoring and adorable girl around!

Personality

I am a super friendly, happy, playful and affectionate girl! Everyone always … Continue reading

I’m absolutely the most affectionate, SWEET, and loyal dog you can imagine, once I get to know you.
