My Story

This gorgeous young girl is Gemma and she is as sweet as she is adorable! Gemma has the prettiest face and such gorgeous markings. She even has the cutest sprinkle of freckles across her nose :) Gemma is a happy girl who loves people and gets along great with other dogs. She is a happy, playful girl who does great with cats and also loves to play with all of her doggie pals. Gemma came to rescue from a very crowded Tennessee shelter where she was picked up stray and went unclaimed. We are all so happy she is safe now in rescue. Gemma is such a sweet girl and she loves meeting people. She would love a doggie playmate in her new home to play and run around with. Gemma is walking nicely on leash. Her foster mom adores her and had this to say about her: "I love Gemma! She is a really good girl, sweet as can be. She is currently being kenneled indoors and doing great. Gemma plays great with other dogs and she is good with cats as well. Gemma even comes when she is called! She is always so happy to see you, and she is learning not to jump up when she is too excited :) Gemma loves attention and affection!" We cannot wait to see this beautiful girl get a great home of her own - could it be yours?

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.

We are a non-profit, tax-exempt rescue who has been rescuing the breed for 15 years.  Visit to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
