My Story

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

Beautiful Cherry is looking for a furever family to lovingly look after. This stunning girl has a long, fluffy coat that will make everyone jealous :) Cherry knows this and is more than happy to be groomed regularly, in order to keep up with her gorgeous appearance. Now, this gorgeous girl is not all looks, but she also has the sweetest temperament. Cherry takes her Pyr guardian duty seriously, and she is an expert at keeping an eye on her two-legged and four legged charges. She has an innate instinct to protect the little ones, making her an excellent companion for children who love dogs. She loves story time, possibly as much as, if not more, than the children themselves! In fact, Cherry has recently taken on the responsibility of helping her foster mom put her human siblings to bed. This big girl is a fantastic companion, and she will be the happiest in a home where she can be involved in everyone's daily routine. This gorgeous, mature girl has a lot of love to give, and if you open your heart to her, we are pawsitive that Cherry will be the most pawsome companion you have ever hoped for!

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.
