My name is Cookie, cause I’m little and sweet and kind of look like an Oreo! History I was adopted by my current humans from a dog kennel east of Greene NY when I was about 8 weeks old. I have been a very happy, joyful, adorable, and healthy little pupper, but it turns out that my humans don’t have the time each day to take care of me the way I need, so they have come to the hard decision to find me a great new home. They want me to have lots of love and attention and exercise and play, and they are just too busy to give me those things. Personality I am super friendly, very playful and love everyone… adults…

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…

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.
