My Story

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

Miss Cleo sees a great family in her future!! This wonderful, young girl is housetrained and leash trained, and has great house manners. Cleo is a fun pup and is looking for fun humans to take her on long walks and adventures. Cleo does great with dogs and warms up to strangers quickly, especially at home. She would love a fun-loving male canine sibling to show her the ropes and to play with in a fenced yard. Cleo will look to her confident foster sibling for guidance. This girl LOVES her food and will do anything for a chewy bone, cream cheese or peanut butter :) Cleo is a sweet, silly girl who loves getting pets and playing - she will grab you with the 'Pyr Paw' to initiate or continue play! But she also knows when to chill and rest. Cleo is the Pyrfect Pyr package for the active family looking for a fun-loving pup to join their pack!

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.
