My Story

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

Fauna is an even-keeled charmer who has beautiful markings that include white socked legs and a lovely brindle coat. She likes to observe and has shown she can be a natural leader among her litter mates. She's good with dogs, cats and children. Fauna could also be an only-dog in the household. She’s working on her house manners, including leash walking and crate training, and is coming along nicely! She has also mastered the art of climbing a chain link fence, so Fauna’s furever home will need a smooth surface 6-foot fence to safely contain her spirited nature :) Fauna may be best suited for someone who works from home, who can monitor her when she’s outdoors. She’s one of the puppies dubbed the “Forest Litter” because they were discovered abandoned in a rural forest in Louisiana at 6 weeks old. Help Fauna find her furever home with kindness, warmth and plenty of love!

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.
