Bessie

Quick Facts: Breed: American Bulldog Gender: Female, spayed Age: 6 years old Size: 70 pounds Good with… Dogs? No, sorry! Cats? Calm, adult cats, yes! Kids? Yes please!! Hi! My name is Bessie and I’m a big, goofy sweetheart who wants to laze around, snuggle with you and be your very best buddy! History I have lived with two families in my life. The first family had me from puppyhood to age 5, at which point they decided they didn’t have enough time for me. A new family took me home after that, and they were told how amazing and wonderful I am (all true!) but weren’t told that I had reactivity to other dogs and that I would need some positive reinforcement training help with this. My current family loves me, but aren’t able to do this training with me, and as I am a strong girl, they find…

No one knows what I suffered before I came here, but I was in rough shape when I arrived—I was very emaciated/ starving, only weighed 30 pounds, and was dripping with milk, though no sign of any puppies. Whatever happened to me, it was for sure traumatic and involved someone not taking even basic care of me. Luckily, the Sanctuary took amazing care of starving, sad me! They…

My name is Poppy, and I am a cute, cuddly and quirky mini Lab mix! ***Poppy is staying with her owners!*** Why I am Looking for a New Home I was rescued from the streets of Tucson, Arizona when I was only 1 month old. I was very skinny and scared, but was nursed back to health by Tucson Cause for Canines. When I was 6 months old, my parents moved to Tucson and adopted me as a companion for their older dog Petunia! Petunia and I became fast friends, and have shared many exciting adventures and afternoon snuggles together. However, I occasionally feel threatened by having to share my space with my sister (maybe due to my unsure start to life), and…

Adopted: Danny

Hello! My name is Danny, and I am the bestest boy around! Quick Facts: Breed: Chocolate Lab Gender: Male, neutered Age: 7 year old Size: 90 pounds Good with… Dogs? No! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! History I was adopted by my former owners as a little puppy and they have loved me and taken fabulous care of me for the past 7 years. Unfortunately, they have other dogs in the house, and for some reason I just cannot share a home with another dog. I am an incredibly good boy—I am well-mannered, have a gorgeous, loving, amazingly wonderful, affectionate, silly, and sweet personality (I love all people, cats, and children!), but since I keep getting into fights with the other dogs, we all decided that for me (and everyone else) to be happy and safe, I need to find a new home where I will be the only dog in…

Kids? 8+ years old History I was surrendered to a high kill shelter in KY when my family could no longer keep me. So sad in a way, but as it probably wasn’t the most loving home, maybe it was a good thing too!

I have been living at Schoolhouse Rescue in the Binghamton area since Spring 2015. I LOVE all of the people who I have met and who visit with…

Adopted: Wally

My name is Wally, and I am a ridiculously happy, silly, fun loving 8 year old neutered male Black Lab Mix! History and Why I am looking for a new home I was picked up as a stray when I was about a year old, by a local shelter that had no facilities. All of us shelter dogs were chained up to a dog house with tons of food and water. That was the best they could do, and I appreciated their efforts, but it was incredibly cold outside, all through the winter. I was very confused and sad, and it was super hard for a young, athletic and super affectionate dog like me to be chained up 24/7. I need…
