My Story

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

You know how people say we should not judge a book by its cover? Well, it applies here with our young boy, Icy. His cool name reflects his beautifully icy white coat that is incredibly soft, but his pyrsonality is anything but icy. In fact, he is cuddly and affectionate, and he loves to rub his head against you to be loved. Being a young boy, Icy is active and playful; not only does he love playing with other dogs, he is also a big fan of all sorts of toys. He would do well with another active dog to play with. Having spent most of his life outdoors prior to coming into rescue, Icy appears to prefer hanging out outside where all the fun happens. However, he is learning all about the perks of chilling indoors...with soft doggie beds, cool floors, and chew toys. This boy is curious and eager to learn, so if you are looking for an active companion to join in all your family adventures, Icy is the pyrfect boy for you! With his happy, curious, affectionate, and playful pyrsonality, we are pawsitive that Icy may be the exact companion you need in your life!

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.
