My Story

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

Do you need more joy in life? Well, look no further because Joy is here and ready for her furever home! This little girl is as sweet as can be, and she is more than happy to be pampered and spoiled. In comparison to her siblings, Joy is on the quiet side, though she is not hesitant to show her fun-loving and spunky side once she gets to know you. She ADORES being held and will snuggle up real tight and close to you, and we suspect she might just snuggle her way into your heart in a heartbeat! Besides playing, Joy has been learning about basic cues and working on her house manners in preparation to be the most pyrfect girl she is meant to be. Joy loves playing with her siblings, and she hopes to have an older canine sib to be her furever playmate and help her learn the ropes, along with a secure fenced yard to play in. Joy will thrive in a loving home where her people will continue to guide her with pawsitive reinforcement training so she can blossom into the gorgeous, loving companion she is destined to be!

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.
