My Story

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

This absolutely adorable girl pup is Ava and she is a total sweetheart! Ava came into rescue with her equally adorable brother Astro, 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. Ava is a very sweet friendly, inquisitive girl who is so smart. She is doing great on her housetraining skills and doing great walking on leash as well - such a good pup! Ava adores her brother and her favorite puppy game is chasing him around the yard when he has a toy, or a pinecone...such a silly pup :) She would do great with another male dog for a playmate. Her foster mom says she is a total lovebug. Ava and her brother have the sweetest faces with half applied eyeliner, and the most beautiful white fluffy coats. Ava is ready to travel to the right home or family. We just love this sweet happy boy and so will you - Ava 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.

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.
