My Story

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

Friendly Cappy – the young boy with the gentle, laid-back personality is the best boy! Cappy would love nothing more than a person or person(s) to love him and spend lots of time walking, hanging out...he is happy to do whatever his family enjoys the most! This boy was found wandering, not claimed as a stray in the shelter and brought to rescue. Cappy keeps his run very clean, is respectful in the home and will enter his crate with the word “kennel” so we believe he lived inside a home. Cappy has the softest coat which he enjoys having brushed, always ready to lend a “paw” by pushing up against you to ensure everywhere can be reached! He will have a small spurt of energy and run but generally enjoys hanging so a female companion would be welcome but not required in his home. Dog-savvy cats are welcome as he will politely approach and sniff—however would probably play if kitty runs. Cappy has such a gentleness about him and loves walking close to his person for pets! This big boy will go outside to patrol the fence line and then come in to hang out or hop into your vehicle to go for a ride. Cappy loves to play with his person and will pick up a toy so you can throw it—he is just a big, big baby :) Cappy’s PYRfect home would be with a person or family who enjoys spending time just loving him!

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.

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.
