My Story

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

What is better than one Pyr? TWO pyrs! If you are hoping for a pair of chilled love bugs to keep you company, the Duke and Abbe duo may be pyrfect for you. Duke is only getting more and more good looking into his golden years, and he does not let his age define him! With his cutest ears and floofy tail, he is determined to enjoy every moment of every day. When Duke is not shadowing his people doing chores, he can often be found keeping critters out of his people's yard. Of course, wherever Duke is, you can be sure to know that Abbe is not far away. These two share a unique bond and they adore each other's company. Abbe, being a lady, is more than happy to leave all the "hard work" to Duke, while she supervises under the shade :) Both Duke and Abbe are love bugs and would love nothing more than to be pampered and showered with affection. These two have so much love to give, and they are looking for a loving home where they can chill and relax and enjoy retirement with their people.

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.
