Hello! My name is Luna and I am a very sweet and affectionate pup!

Luna is a 7-month old purebred Great Pyrenees pup who weighs about 55 lbs. She belonged to a backyard breeder but was found, on multiple occasions, wandering in the road with her 2 brothers. The owner/breeder bailed them all out several times, but the fine increased every time they were picked up. So the last time, she took Luna’s brothers but left her there. She is a very timid girl and doesn’t have an aggressive bone in her body. She’s very sweet and affectionate and is … Continue reading

History

I’m from a breeder in Kentucky. My mom adopted me at 11 weeks old to train me as a therapy dog.

Medical

When i arrived to Ithaca, our veterinarian found that I am heartworm positive.  So sad, but wow, so lucky that I landed in rescue and in a town with awesome vets to give me the best treatment possible!  After initial testing, I was brought up to Cornell Cardiology in mid-December for a cardiac ultrasound and chest x-rays, to see how advanced the disease was, and if i was a good candidate for treatment.  It was all good news!  My heart and lungs looked … Continue reading

History

My family adopted me from the Tompkins County SPCA two years ago; I was two years old at the time so I’m pretty sure I’m almost four years old. The SPCA was very scary for me and I barked and growled at everyone while in my room. When I met my people in a neutral area of the facility, they sat on the floor and were given treats to share with me and soon I was coming to them and letting them pet me. Then they got a toy and threw it for me … Continue reading

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 to share my space with my sister (maybe due … Continue reading

History

I landed in a very high kill rural shelter in Kentucky, missing half of my fur and with skin so red and raw it was painful to look at. Sadly, that shelter provides no medical care, so I lay there for weeks, itching 24 hours a day and feeling like my skin was on fire. Luckily, another KY shelter scooped me up before I was going to be put to sleep and brought me to their much better shelter, then contacted CDR and asked if I could come up to their foster program. Guess what? They said YES! It was a long ride but boy am I happy to be here, … Continue reading

Hello! My name is Dahlia (Dolly for short!) and I am the sweet-sweet-sweet!

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 has … Continue reading
