My Story

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

If you are looking for a fun-loving and playful young boy to be your furever friend, Benjamin may be the pyrfect boy for you! This boy is simply a bundle of fun. He plays well with other dogs and dog-savvy cats. Did we mention that he is oh so handsome? We are pawsitive he will grow up to be the most gorgeous gentleman very soon!  Benjamin is shy and timid when meeting new people for the first time but quickly warms up. He will quickly melt into your arms if you allow him some time to get used to you. Seriously, he gives the best kisses once he gets to know you! These days, Benjamin is busy learning about house manners and basic cues, and preparing to transition to his furever family. This cute boy will do well in a home where his people are willing to spend time to guide him on the right path to become the most pyrfect gentleman. With his sweet pyrsonality, we have no doubt Benjamin will mature into the best buddy for one lucky family in no time!

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.
