My Story

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

This very distinguished senior Pyrenees boy is Blake and he is such a sweetheart! Blake came to rescue from a crowded shelter in Alabama, and despite a rough life, it turns out he couldn't be any nicer. Blake is looking and feeling so much better than when he came in to rescue. He was completely emaciated and his coat and ears were a mess. His foster mom has taken such great care of him he has gained about 25 lb and he is looking and feeling great. He did have to be shaved down completely but his coat has grown in beautifully, he looks like a completely different dog now. Blake loves people and loves attention. He walks nicely on leash and rides well in the car. His foster mom just loves him. We cannot change what happened to him in the first part of his life but we are determined to make sure he gets a wonderful home for the rest of his life. Blake came into rescue heartworm positive, was treated for that and is now heartworm negative. Blake is a very nice senior boy looking for a great retirement home. Could it be yours?

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.
