My Story

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

Hoss is a wonderfully sweet gentlemen who will make his new family very happy! The family that gets this fella will be very lucky...Hoss is sweet, loving and never in a hurry :) He is housetrained and will always let you know when he needs to go out. He was found as a stray so does not know many basic commands but he will stop when you tell him to and he has excellent house manners. Hoss would love an easy-going home. Humans who aren’t too active but will take him for walks and occasionally to the store. Hoss would love a big canine companion to keep him company. He currently gets along very well with his two female foster siblings. Hoss is a calm, well-mannered and loyal friend. He’s happy getting lots of love and pets on his big soft head and snuggling up for a good afternoon nap. If Hoss sounds like the Pyrfect addition to your family, apply today!

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.
