My Story

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

This sweet and lovely smaller sized Pyr mix girl is Aurora and she's looking for a great home of her own! This wonderful gal is brand new to rescue so we are just getting to know her. Aurora does well with all of the other dogs at foster and was great with the other dogs on the farm where she showed up hungry and thin with a single puppy in tow (also in rescue). Aurora has very sweet demeanor and her size is perfect for anyone not wanting an extra large Pyr. She is so friendly and she likes everyone she has met. She would do great with another male dog in the home to play with or she would do just fine on her own. Aurora is smart and learns quickly. She rode well in the car and although leash walking is new to her, she is getting the hang of it. Aurora still needs to be cat tested but she does well with other dogs and likes to play. She prefers to eat alone as she came in so thin and starving, so for now we are feeding her separately. This pretty girl would do best with a taller 5-6 foot fence as she was able to get over 4 foot fencing. This very nice girl loves attention and affection and can’t wait to find a great family of her own and be your new best friend!

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.
