My Story

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

The Forest Litter are all ready to find their furever families! This litter of 5 puppies was dumped and abandoned in a forest in rural Louisiana but thankfully rescued at 6 weeks old. We think mom is a Pyr mix but don't have any info about dad. Fernando is the sweetest boy who adores being loved, especially if all the loving takes place in a warm lap. This little boy is appropriately cautious when it comes to novel things; he prefers to observe how others approach the new things, learning from their experience before trying them himself. He is keen on riding along in the kayak and digging for treasures in the sand. Fernando will need a large yard with a secure fence at least 5 feet tall and a canine sibling to bond with and help show him the ropes. This cutie-pie is an active, out-going boy who will thrive in an active home where he will be an essential part of the family. We are pawsitive that Fernando will be the lovebug you have always been looking for!

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.

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.
