My Story

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

Just like the classic story, the Little Women Litter of four sisters are each unique in their own way but mesh well as a unit with each other and all the other unique dogs in their foster homes. This litter is a mix of Great Pyrenees, Lab, and Newfie. Jo, like her namesake, is a tomboy and always looking, wandering, and checking out what the world has in store for her. She is the biggest of the four and truly thinks she is the oldest and in “charge”. She isn’t bossy, she just knows what she wants :) She is best described as adventurous and outgoing, loves her toys and playing with the other dogs. She is good with cats and doesn’t pay any attention to the chickens on the other side of the fence which is amazing for a puppy! Jo has the most soulful look, as if she knows everything, but also knows there is more to discover. Loud, boisterous dogs are not her favorite, but she adores people, especially getting pets from them. Jo is not a big barker, but will "talk" by yowling to communicate with you. Older kids are preferred as she is still a puppy, and she'll need someone to walk her (she is leash-trained) and to play with her (Jo loves her squeaky toys!) This mellow and sweet people-pleaser will need a home with a secure fenced yard, another male dog to play with and learn from, and a family who likes fun and adventure!

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.
