Bailey

Quick Facts: Breed: Shepherd- Hound mix Gender: Female, spayed Age: 2 years old Size: 60 pounds Good with… Dogs? Maybe! Cats? Unknown Kids? Yes! Hello! My name is Bailey and I am the most adorable, playful dog around! History I had a rough first year of life and was surrendered to Herkimer Humane Society before my current mom found me. I was very anxious at the shelter, apparently the people who surrendered me were NOT NICE folks, but life has been much, much better since I got adopted. Clearly, the people who had me when I was a puppy did not treat me kindly, which has left me very skittish with men until I get to know them. I have been in my new home for a year now and they have really helped me to become less anxious and to discover my fun side! The kids in the home…

Quick Facts: Breed: Mexican Village Dog Gender: Male, neutered Age: 3 years old Size: 70 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes…especially if they’re smaller than I! Cats? Yes! Kids? 12+ if calm! Hello! My name is Charlie and I’m a smart, curious, inquisitive 3 year-old male! History My pregnant mother was found stuck in a bear trap just over the Mexican border in southern Texas. Horrifying, right? She was rescued, thank goodness, and her puppies were adopted out all over the U.S.! I was adopted by my current family here in upstate NY and we’ve been a sweet pack for 3 years now. While I’ve been happy and healthy, living in a house with two little kids and lots & lots of action and commotion is too much for a pup like me who is happiest when things are calm, quiet, and predictable. Personality In a calm home environment: On most…

Yes, 9+ Hi, my name is Cooper and I am SUCH A GOOD BOY!!! History I was bounced around a bit as a little pup, getting some love and care with some teenagers who were doing their best to take care of me. The second teen’s family said I could live with them, but had to stay outside 24/7 because one of their family members is allergic to dogs. They were nice, but I didn’t love being outside all the time, too much time alone, and autumn was here and it was getting COLD! The next-door neighbor saw me out there in the cold, and was having none of it. The same family had had a former dog live outside for its entire life, and it…

(fostered with cat now and he is curious & respectful but she hides too efficiently for him to engage) Kids? We think so! 8+! History Meet Baba Voss! If the name leaves you scratching your head, check out the TV series “See.” Voss has been sight-impaired since birth. He can see some shadows and more out of one eye vs. the other. You’d never notice unless you were looking for this! We rescued him from a shelter in rural NC, where the amazing shelter staff advocated against his being euthanized. He was unlikely to find an adoptive home there, but we knew we’d be able to find him a great home in the Ithaca area! Personality…

My name is Buddy and I am super affectionate, smart, and incredibly playful!! History and Why I Am Looking For a New Home I was abandoned in winter when I was less than a year old. Very scary, very cold! I was found by the side of the highway, in the snow, by 2 very sweet ladies in their 80’s. They saved my life by getting me off the side of that snowy highway, and for a while, gave me a wonderful home. Loads of love, tons of toys, and all the food I could ever want! But I am a big guy, and they were both tiny and kind of fragile, and we all realized over time that I…

I had a seizure and they started me on the proper medications, but that required follow-up bloodwork and they didn’t have the money for that so they stopped my medications, and then I had another seizure. Since they didn’t feel able to provide the ongoing medical care that I need, they very kindly surrendered me to Willow’s…
