Jordan, the young male Pyrenees with the smile that never stops! His happy pyrsonality is truly contagious! This boy was brought into rescue as a stray from a local shelter and needs to gain about 20 lbs—nothing some good cooking made with love won’t fix :) Jordan is a high energy dog who loves to run, jump, and play with both male and female dogs. Jordan’s background is a mystery, but what we know is that he does not mind a crate where he will quietly lie until let out; and while he doesn’t seem to have any obedience training, he will sit and obey with a treat! Jordan needs continued leash training and is learning his manners, such as that jumping is not polite. Jordan is a very friendly boy, greeting strangers with a constant wagging tail—he has never met a stranger! This boy even is good with the resident kitties! Jordan would welcome a home with a big, secure fenced yard and perhaps a playful canine sibling or two. Older children who enjoy playing with dogs would be welcome too! Jordan would make a perfect hiking companion too :) An active family, with the love, patience, and desire to provide training, and daily walks will be rewarded with a wonderful companion and family member!

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.
