The girl with the loveliest smile is our precious Cake, and she is looking for a furever family of her own in time for the summer! Now don't be fooled by her sweet name, because she takes her job as a guardian very seriously. Even though she may look like she is lounging outdoors, she is vigilant and will alert when potential intruders approach. Just like her guardian ancestors, Cake treats new people with apprehension, and she takes her time to get to know you properly. But once she gets to know and trust you, she is the most affectionate, loyal, and loving pooch you have ever met! In fact, she will transform into your new best friend and will not be shy about giving (and asking) for cuddles :) She even comes with the softest fur that is pyrfect for snuggling! Although Cake gets along well with other dogs, she prefers to be left alone during mealtimes. She also has a strong preference about keeping her prize possessions (e.g., beds, toys) to herself. These days, her favorite activities are hanging out with her favorite people, and going on walks around the neighborhood. Cake is a very special girl who is looking for her very own special family who is willing to be patient with her while she gets to know them, and who have the time to dote on her and let this girl be an essential part of their 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.
