My Story

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

Just in time to play in the snow the Panda Litter (10 enchanting Great Pyrenees/Border Collie mixes) are ready to meet their furever families! Fern is gentle, sweet, and on her way to perfecting the “side-eye” trait known to many Pyrenees owners :) Fern and her siblings were born in a foster home and raised with his siblings and mama. They continue to amaze their foster as they grow—they are the smartest, most loving puppies and have even mastered the doggie door to go potty. They have been raised with their mama and their fosters big dogs who they love, respect, and play well with. Bamboo loves to snuggle and is smart, and playful. Fern loves to give kisses and make all attempts to cuddle up on your lap. She loves to play, but is also happy to relax on her own while she watches her litter mates carry on with their shenanigans...hence her "side-eye in training". Fern would love a home where she can play and cuddle all in one day! Fern and her siblings will require a home who understands this unique breed mix, has a secure fenced yard at least 5 ft and a doggie playmate for their new pup!

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.
