My Story

Heads up! Aphrodite is looking for a best friend to share her wonderful zest for life! This gorgeous, young girl is a ball of energy and high intelligence all rolled into one.
If you are looking for an active pal to go on adventures with Aphrodite may be the perfect gal for you! Learning cues and house manners come easy to Aphrodite, and she is like a sponge, soaking up every bit of information you feed her (well, treats too, of course :) Aphrodite is a bundle of joy who thrives with praise and any type of positive reinforcement, and she has oh-so-much pawtential in her. This happy-go-lucky girl will do well in an active home where her family is willing to dedicate the time and patience to her consistent training. Aphrodite is a girl who needs a purpose in life, and with that in mind, she will be the super star in your world!

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.
