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


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!

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

I came all the way from KY, where I was originally in a high-kill, very crowded shelter. I landed in that
scary place when my former owner felt she was not able to care for me anymore. The shelter needed to
make some space (aka put a bunch of us to sleep), so luckily a volunteer lady in the shelter told the great
people at CDR about me. They had a place with a warm bed for me, and I was able to hitch a ride on the
transport to Ithaca!
