That’s where my awesome Mom found me! She adopted me in…

Yes! 14+ Hello! My name is Bentley and I am a very friendly, exuberant, enthusiastic young Golden Retriever! History I was adopted as a puppy by my family, but circumstances have prevented them from being able to keep me. Luckily, Cayuga Dog Rescue was able to take me into their foster program, my former family was happy to surrender me, and the wonderful owners of the Bed and Biscuit Kennel were happy to foster me at their kennel! I am very happy, everyone is being so nice to me and I get to run and play in their big fenced yards like I always dreamed of being able to do! The only thing missing is a wonderful new family, but they…

My name is Bruce and I am a sweet and loving boy who loves to relax in the sun! History I was adopted from a foster home in Texas and brought to New York in July 2022 to live with my current family. I had been with my foster mom in Texas for ~2 months and before that I had lived in a shelter. My early life is unclear, but it’s left me with some anxieties that make it hard for me to live with young rambunctious kids. I’m extremely sweet and loving and my family loves me deeply, but I think I will thrive more in a house without very small kids. Personality I am 90% a cuddly couch potato! I…

Kids? 14+ Hi, I my name is Thea and I am an athletic, friendly, very good-natured and snuggly girl! History and Why I am Looking for a New Home I was adopted as a puppy by my current mom and have lived happily in my current home since. I’ve been a great girl, and have lived well with the male dog in my home, and also with the female dog in my current home until I came into heat. That was about 3 years ago, and since then, our fights have become more frequent, and more serious. Right now, I am recovering from wounds from the most recent fight and our mom has had to keep the other dog in a crate most of the time,…

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: 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…
