My name is Cedar, and I’m a fun-loving, sweet-hearted, enthusiastic Lab-Beagle mix! History I’ve lived with my family in Ithaca for about 4 months.

Then I got adopted by my current family and life started to get much better! I learned so much in the past 4-5 months! I got house-broken, learned how to walk on a leash, what kinds of furniture were ok to be on (couches) and what kinds weren’t (tables, haha!), and…
