My name is Charlie, and I am the bestest boy ever! History and Why We are Looking for a New Home I was originally adopted from a shelter in Tennessee by my current owner’s ex-girlfriend. When they split up, she took me with her far away, as she was my official owner. Unfortunately, she was very unstable, and living with her was really rough. Not only did I have inconsistent access to food and water, but she would be gone sometimes (to jail or other places), leaving me homeless. When she went to jail, the police put me in a shelter, but then I went back to her when she got out. During this period, my current owner/dad did everything he…

This is Momo, she is a super wonderful dog. *** Momo is not a CDR dog but please fill out an application and it will be forwarded to her rescuer!*** History and Why Momo is Looking for a New Home I adopted Momo in 2014 from an Alabama rescue that takes dogs out of kill shelters and ships them to new homes in the Northeast.

Unfortunately, she is also very possessive, attacking any dog she suspects of having designs on you, even large ones. Because she couldn’t stop attacking one of our larger dogs and…

Adopted: Flissie

Quick Facts: Breed: Pocket Pittie Gender: Female, spayed Age: 6 years old Size: 40 pounds Good with… Dogs? See summary Cats? Unknown Kids? Yes, 12+! ***Flissie is not a CDR dog but please fill out an application and it will be forwarded to her rescuer!*** History, Personality, and Why I’m Looking for a New Home Flissie (an affectionate form of Felicity) we think has quite a sad story, even though she is an exceptionally joyful girl (we and her veterinarians have inferred her past based on her condition and her behavior). She probably spent the first two years of her life in a cage, almost all the time. She also must have tried to chew her way out of it based on her having only three remaining canine teeth (we got her the dental surgery she desperately needed). When we adopted her, she had no idea about how to be…

My name is Ebi which rhymes with Debbie and means “shrimp” in Japanese! Haha, I am a little shrimp and as sweet, adorable, and cute as can be! History and Why I am Looking for a New Home In 2018 I was transported, along with my two nursing puppies, from a shelter in Kentucky to CDR, after being found as a stray. I was such a good mama to my pups that I gave all of my nutrition to them, leaving me painfully underweight. After my puppies were weaned and adopted, I got adopted to my wonderful current mom, gained back the weight I so sorely needed, and have been very happy with my mom for the past 4 years. I LOVE to…

My name is Boss (aka “Chewie”….for my Chewbacca sounds 😊), and I’m a SUPER affectionate boy and a lover of ALL people, big small! History and Why I Am Looking for a New Home When I was about 1½ years old, I was just skin-on-bones, was heartworm-positive, and was about to be “put to sleep” the next day in a kill shelter in Georgia. But then…a kind young man rescued me and nurtured me back to health! But just a year later, his circumstances changed and he couldn’t take care of me anymore, so his mother became my foster mama. She loves me VERY much and would never willingly give me up, but she is changing jobs…

Unknown Kids? 12+ (I like a peaceful home setting) Bo is a super sweet, Hilarious little guy. History I lived with a man for the last 10 years of my life. Nothing bad happened to me there, but not much all that good either. Then my person got a girlfriend and she didn’t like dogs, so my person took me to a high kill shelter in KY where he lived. Super scary and awful for me. Luckily, a wonderful KY rescue person reached out on my behalf to Cayuga Dog Rescue, and put me in a temp foster home until they could have me driven by a team of volunteers up to central NY to join their foster program. I was really unsure and shy when I arrived,…
