Benny

Quick Facts: Breed: Hound mix Gender: Male, neutered Age: 5 years Size: 50 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Some cats! Kids? Yes! 13+ Hello! My name is Benny! I’m an easygoing hound dog who loves to bask in the sunshine! History I was found wandering the woods of Kentucky, landed in a rough shelter there but 3 years ago was transported to NY and adopted by my current wonderful, loving family. I’m a very calm, old-soul kind of pup in general, but my early life left with me some anxiety/sensitivities and I’m not a good fit to live with little kids. I’m so sweet and loving, and it breaks my parents hearts to have to find me a new home, but with a little toddler in the house and another on the way, we all know I’ll be happier and safer in a home without little kids that I…

Adopted: Charlie Bear

Quick Facts: Breed: Yellow Lab mix Gender: Male, neutered Age: 7 years old? Size: 90 pounds Good with… Dogs? Calm dogs, introduced slowly! Cats? No, sorry! Kids? Not a great match, sorry. My name is Charlie Bear! Though my life pre-rescue was scary and sad, I am an incredibly loving and good dog who I attaches very deeply to people who are nice to me. My deepest wish is to find an adoptive home that is loving, safe and kind (and that my stuffed animal lamb best friend can come with me!). History I was originally adopted from a shelter in Tennessee by a young couple. When they split up, she took me with her far away, as she was my official owner. Sadly, she was very unstable, and living with her was rough. Sometimes I didn’t have any food for long stretches. Sometimes I didn’t even have access to…

Yes, 12+ Hi, I’m Lygia and I am a delightful, sweet pup! History I lived with my first set of humans for the first 6 years of my life. I love my first family as we went on many walks and played in the gorges in Ithaca.  My family needed to move into an apartment, and they had two babies! It became a little tight for all of us and the human babies didn’t understand how to play with me in a safe way.  I had a wonderful and happy life with my humans and now I am looking for my new forever home. Personality I love my humans and I really enjoy going for walks with them.  If we go for a car…

Adopted: Momo

Quick Facts: Breed: Dachshund-Chihuahua mix Gender: Female, spayed Age: 10 years old Size: 12 pounds Good with… Dogs? Sorry, no! Cats? Untested Kids? NO!!! 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. I wanted a Velcro dog, and I got one! Momo will follow you everywhere, snuggle at the drop of any hat, and want to sleep in bed with you at night. 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…

Adopted: Ebi

Quick Facts: Breed: Cairn Terrier mix? Gender: Female, spayed Age: 7-9 years old Size: 8 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Nope, sorry! Kids? Yes! 8+ Hi! 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…

Quick Facts: Breed: Pit Bull mix Gender: Male, neutered Age: 8 years old Size: 70 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! (had a dog ‘sister’ until Aug 2020) Cats? No. Kids? YES…all ages!! Hi! 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…

Adopted: Bo

Quick Facts: Breed: Bassett Hound/Black Lab mix Gender: Male, neutered Age: 11 years old Size: 41 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? 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,…
