My Story

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

Dusty is affectionately referred to as "Mr. Goofy Pants" because of his curiosity and zest for life! His foster mama says she sees him with his extra long ears, and her mind just thinks “little goofpot” :) Dusty, a Great Pyrenees mix, came into rescue with his 7 siblings known as the Ditch Litter. These babies were found abandoned in a ditch and taken straight to a foster home where they were showered with love and attention. Dusty is very playful, the last to fall asleep which annoys his siblings who are snoozing comfortably. His foster mama is sure to always keep a chew toy close to keep him entertained. This baby is all boy, into everything, not wanting to be left out. He will even help you when weeding and picking vegetables in the garden! Dusty is very food motivated which is helpful in teaching this smart boy new skills. Dusty and his siblings will make the perfect companions for boaters—not only are they amazing swimmers but have mastered taking the kayak out for a spin on their own! To keep Dusty safe, he needs a secure 5 foot fence and a canine playmate. If you are looking for a fun-loving, curious pup who wants to be by your side and willing to join you on all things fun, Dusty just may be your boy!

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.
