My Story

Adoption Pending. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.

Sweet Abbe is looking for a retirement home of her own to spend her golden years. This lovely girl was loved and cherished for most of her life, until her owner passed away recently, and she found herself going through applications for her next furever home. Although Abbe may not be as energetic as some of the younger puppers, she still walks with a pep in her step and is always eager when she hears the jingle of the leash. Abbe adores her regular neighborhood walks so she can keep up with the current events, and she is happy to tag along for a car ride as you run chores, especially if you are willing to make a pit stop to get a much deserved puppuccino! Abbe is also quite the connoisseur of treats - she keeps a secret log of the best treats she has savored and if you ask nicely, she will let you take a quick peek so you know which ones to pick out at the store :) This lovely girl still has all the love in the world to give, and she is the pyrfect companion for someone who is also looking for someone to love unconditionally. Will that be you? If that's the case, apply now and bring this girl home in time for all the holiday festivities!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.

We may consider fostering for some of our dogs who are in boarding. Please visit Fostering FAQfor an application and information about our fostering program.
