This gorgeous young girl is Kaylan, and she is one of the most amazing pups we have around. Miss Kaylan is deaf, but guess what, she has learned sign language and is continuing to learn more signs for different cues! This young lady is eager to please and is food motivated - you can practically see the sparkles in her eyes when it is time for her regular training sessions. Recently recovering from a hip surgery, Kaylan has been slightly limited in terms of freedom and playtime, but her spirits remain high and she is as spunky as ever. Kaylan is doing well with her foster canine siblings, and she is respectful of older children who are equally respectful of her needs. Keeping in mind all that Kaylan has been through, she will do best in a home where her furever people have the patience and time to continue improving her sign language skills, and continue regular physical therapy to maintain strength and mobility as she matures. Kaylan is a remarkable girl with amazing pawtential. As long as you are willing to open your heart, we have no doubt that the sky's the limit for this wonderful girl!

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.
