Adoption Pending: Zoe – GSD

Quick Facts: Breed: German Shepherd mix Gender: Female Age: 8 months old Size: 50+ pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! (see Cohabitation) Cats? Yes! (see Cohabitation) Kids? Yes! (see Cohabitation) Hello!! My name is Zoe. I am smart, playful, and ready for adventure!! History In mid-March I started being fostered by a professional dog trainer with rescue experience who wanted to help me! She had heard that my then-family, who loved me and were very kind, were too busy with their 4 teenage kids to provide any of the training and daily activity that I need. Plus, the hustle and bustle of their home was just too overstimulating for a young pup like me! They didn’t know what they were going to do and didn’t want to surrender me to a shelter, so thank goodness that a local dog professional stepped up and said she would let me live with her…

Adopted: Toby

Quick Facts: Breed: Beagle mix Gender: Male, Neutered Age: 7 years old Size: 40 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! Hi, my name is Toby and I am incredibly affectionate, loving and sweet-tempered! History I landed in a high-kill shelter in Kentucky. The shelter didn’t note whether I was found stray or had been surrendered, but the rescue folks are guessing that I had been lucky to have had a nice owner, but that maybe I got lost or maybe he/she died or had to go into a nursing home and there was no one to care for me. I clearly have been treated very well by humans because I LOVE humans, and I show no fears or concerns about people, dogs, or cats. I just smile and wag-wag-wag at everyone! Personality I am silly and sweet and incredibly friendly and very affectionate! I wake up every…

Adopted: Willis

Quick Facts: Breed: Beagle Gender: Male, Neutered Age: 10 years old Size: 35 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! Hi! My name is Willis and I am the cutest, sweetest beagle who just wants to hang out with you! History I was adopted from a Cornell research dog program when I was 9 months old. My new family had a young female dog who showed me the ropes of being a family dog since I had been housed full-time in a kennel when I was in the research program. It was so fun! I learned loads of things, but maybe my favorite was finding my Beagle bark! This took months and was so delightful (to everyone) when I found it! My doggie sibling was a bit food aggressive and bossy about her space, so sometimes she would yell or growl at me, but I’m an easy going…

Adopted: Megan

Quick Facts: Breed: Schipperke mix Gender: Female Age: 12 years young Size: 20 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! 6+ Hi! My name is Megan, and I am sweet, easygoing, and insanely adorable! History I was surrendered to a high-kill shelter in Kentucky along with another senior dog– my people said they couldn’t take care of us anymore. He was named Charlie, and I was named Manson, which seemed to make everyone around us sad. We went to different rescues, so we’re both safe, but it was very sad to be given away and also to lose my best buddy. I was renamed Megan, which I think is lovely, and as I know my new name now very well, I want to keep it please! Personality I’m an incredibly sweet girl—friendly, easygoing, relaxed, and adorable. I have some good energy and feistiness too, which I am told…

My name is Arthur, and I love snuggling with my people! Middle-aged, mostly-mellow, treat-loving, devoted family dog seeking a patient, understanding, dog-savvy person or family who will give me lots of cuddles, love and treats, and use positive-based training to overcome my fear of non-family people coming into my home.  (Cayuga Dog Rescue will pay for a trainer to work with us on my reactive behaviors so we can learn together.)
