Personality I am an incredibly affectionate, silly, goofy, fun-loving, happy-happy-happy boy!  I was a cwazy cwazy puppy, but since I turned 2 I’ve become an incredibly mature fuzz ball!  I like (and am used…

Kids? 14+ ***Sasha is not a CDR dog and has not been evaluated by CDR.*** History My family adopted me from the Tompkins County SPCA two years ago; I was two years old at the time so I’m pretty sure I’m almost four years old. The SPCA was very scary for me and I barked and growled at everyone while in my room. When I met my people in a neutral area of the facility, they sat on the floor and were given treats to share with me and soon I was coming to them and letting them pet me. Then they got a toy and threw it for me and I was in love. When 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.

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: Bitsy

Hi, I’m Bitsy and I’m a hilarious snugglebunny! Quick Facts: Breed: Chihuahua/Toy Terrier mix Gender: Female, spayed Age: 2 year old Size: 6 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Unknown Kids? Yes! History I landed in a very high kill rural shelter in Kentucky, missing half of my fur and with skin so red and raw it was painful to look at. Sadly, that shelter provides no medical care, so I lay there for weeks, itching 24 hours a day and feeling like my skin was on fire. Luckily, another KY shelter scooped me up before I was going to be put to sleep and brought me to their much better shelter, then contacted CDR and asked if I could come up to their foster program. Guess what? They said YES! It was a long ride but boy am I happy to be here, where not only am I getting…

Adopted: Dahlia

Quick Facts: Breed: Collie/Aussie mix Gender: Female, spayed Age: 9 year old Size: 40 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? 8+ Hello! My name is Dahlia (Dolly for short!) and I am the sweet-sweet-sweet! History I landed in a high-kill shelter in KY as a stray. Very bad luck for me, as many of the dogs there end up euthanized due to lack of space to house them or resources to care for them. But since I was clearly just the absolute sweetest dog imaginable, the shelter workers reached out to a rescue person in KY who reached out to CDR, and I got rescued! I am so grateful and am passionate about making every day a joyful one, and spreading happiness and smiles everywhere I go! Personality I am an extraordinarily sweet and happy girl who is typically pretty calm but has adorable bursts of enthusiastic energy!…

I’m an incredibly sweet, affectionate, (but shy/scared) Aussie mix girl! History My former life was rough and scary and left me quite shy and nervous about new people, new places, and unexpected sounds. Before being rescued, I spent some months chained up to a barn and ignored by the people who were supposed to be my people, and where I was before that was also awful, but I try not to think about it. I am thankful every day that the Cornell vet students who came to the farm where I was chained out, offered to take me from those mean people. And I am thankful that those people didn’t want me, and were happy to hand me…

When my family moved to New York this year, I came with them, so now I am a New York doggie! My dog “sister” (who is much smaller than me) hurt her back and everyone thinks it may have been because we were playing a bit too enthusiastically. She needed this major back surgery and she isn’t allowed…
