My Story

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

This gorgeous little fluff ball is puppy Apex, and he is eagerly waiting for his furever family to pick him up in time for all the holiday festivities he has heard so much about. Not only is Apex the most adorable puppy, but he is also one smart cookie! Despite being a wee pup, he is showing all the pawtential to be the most pyrfect companion. We have lost count of the number of times he has been praised, walking alongside his foster mom at the mall or the busy downtown area. These days, he has even been promoted to be the crossing guard mascot! We can only imagine what he can accomplish once he matures to his full pawtential. Like most puppies his age, Apex is playful and easily entertained - he loves playing with his foster siblings, and he is crossing his paws that he will have an older sibling to guide him and be his furever best friend and a secured yard where he can play safely with his siblings. We see a lot of pawtential in this adorable, playful pup, and we are pawsitive he will be your most loyal sidekick in no time!

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.
