My Story

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

Are you looking to welcome a happy furever furry friend into your pack? Young Bosco may be the pyrfect pal for you!  Bosco loves people and will remember those he’s met before. This sweet boy will always be happy to see you when you come home, whether you're gone for 5 minutes or 5 hours. He’ll give you a good laugh, hopping on all fours like a bunny to greet you.  He has good leash skills, he's housebroken and will 'down' and 'sit' for a treat . Bosco enjoys being brushed, petted and going for car rides. He loves the outdoors, especially when there is a large, safe fenced space for him to run like the wind and play with other dogs.  Bosco’s pyrfect home would have a big yard with a secure fence, another doggy pal to run and play with and an active family. He’s a big, fluffy, lovable, happy guy who could be the pyrfect match for your fun-loving 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.

If you can't foster or adopt at this time, please consider helping our Neediest Cases or making a tax-exempt donation by visiting our Donate page.
