My Story

Just like the classic story, the Little Women Litter of four sisters are each unique in their own way but mesh well as a unit with each other and all the other unique dogs in their foster homes. This litter is a mix of Great Pyrenees, Lab, and Newfie. Amy is as sweet as they come, very independent but with a quiet nature, more relaxed in her mannerisms and extremely smart. This girl absolutely loves to snuggle with her person, so let’s hope she doesn’t get too big because did we say how much she loves to snuggle?! She just loves people and will always be by her foster dad’s side whether it be following him or just laying contently close by him (she will find her spot and stay close!) Amy loves to play and rarely barks. She enjoys the yard, adventuring into the wooded area, playing with her sister, but is very content to sit quietly and enjoy a toy. Amy would be great with children and cats, and will require a canine brother in her furever home to show her the ropes, along with a visible secure fenced yard. Amy is crate trained and working on house training.  Amy wants a home with a family who loves hanging with their furry animals, going for walks, spending lazy winter Sundays in front of the fire, and who will continue to train her to be the best girl possible!

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.

If you can't foster or adopt at this time, please consider helping our Neediest Cases or making a tax-exempt donation by visiting our Donate page.
