My Story

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

Young Asher is our sweetest boy with the funniest underbite. Although we are not sure where he got his underbite, it does not affect the fact that Asher has some of the best pyrsonality that makes you swoon over him. This young boy is quite the social butterfly - he has yet met anyone he does not immediately love, and he is very generous with his kisses :) When it comes to his four-legged foster siblings, Asher is the most pawsome playmate during playtimes and transforms into a big cuddly bear when it is time for naps. We can only imagine how even more popular he will be when the temperature drops further - seriously, how can one resist such a cuddly ball of fluff?! Asher is at the age where he is like a sponge, soaking up EVERYTHING that you teach him - not only is he smart, but he also has a strong desire to please. If you can spare a few minutes every day, we are pawsitive that Asher will accumulate a number of cute tricks for you to show off this holiday season. This lovely boy will thrive in an active home where he is loved and cherished as an essential part of the family - bonus points if he can have his very own furever sibling to play with. Asher has so much pawtential, the only thing he needs is for you to take him home, like, now! :)

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.
