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!

Personality:

I am told that I am … Continue reading

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.

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:

I come all the way from KY, where I was originally in a high-kill, very crowded shelter, and it’s a pretty amazing thing that I am alive right now.
