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

If you have been searching high and low for the pyrfect Pyr, Daylon may be the pyrfect boy for you! This all-around lovely boy has all the pawsitive qualities we look for - he is the most gentle giant, both with his canine and feline siblings, as well as the two-legged ones that he has met. Daylon is quite the social butterfly, making friends easily and joining in whatever game is going on without much hesitation. You want to play a game of tag? Absolutely! How about just racing around to see who can do the most laps? You bet! What about just chill out for a pack nap? Be right there! When the weather is nice, Daylon can often be found splashing about in water. If you happen to be a water sports enthusiast, Daylon would love nothing more than to ride along on your kayak as you enjoy a nice day in the water. He is truly one of the most easy-going, happy-go-lucky boys around. He loves to be cuddled and who wouldn't want to cuddle up with this floofy boy? With his pyrfect pyrsonality, Daylon will easily thrive in a loving family where he will be adored and cherished. If you are lucky enough to be his furever person, Daylon will no doubt be your most loyal sidekick for years to come!

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.
