My Story

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

This big handsome boy pup is Astro and he is a total lovebug - just a big sweet, happy boy! Astro came into rescue with his equally adorable sister Ava, from a very crowded Georgia shelter. Both pups were urgent due to an upper respiratory virus going through the shelter, but thankfully we were able to get both babies right to the vets office where they made a full recovery. Astro is a big sweet friendly boy who loves playing with his sister. His favorite game is to pick up a toy or pinecone and run around the yard while his sister chases after him...such a silly pup! Astro is doing great on his housetraining skills and doing great walking on leash as well. He's a very smart pup! Astro is a happy playful boy who adores his human and doggie pals and he would do great with another dog for a playmate. His foster mom says he is a total sweetheart. Astro and his sister have the sweetest faces with half applied eyeliner, and the most beautiful white fluffy coats. Astro is ready to travel to the right home or family. We just love this sweet happy boy and so will you - Astro will be a great addition for some lucky family!

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.
