My Story

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

Loki is one of four young Pyrs surrendered with their parents to a WV shelter. They came in underweight, with little training but plenty of smarts! Everything is new to this family as they never lived in a house and were confined together in a small area. Loki has not looked back and is learning what fun and love is all about! This boy is learning leash manners and enjoys walking around with his person. He has even learned the sit command. Loki was a little shy his first time in the house but quickly settled and became comfortable. This gentle boy loves other dogs, playing, running, and chasing so would like to request another canine companion in his furever home. Cats would be ok too as long as they don’t mind him "checking them out”; he will quickly lose interest if they ignore him. This boy loves everything about people—being brushed, going exploring on the leash, or simply sitting to be petted and adored. He also thinks toys are the best and will smile happily when he has them to play with! Loki’s perfect home will include a nice fenced yard, another dog or two, and a basket full of toys :) Children to throw a ball and hang with would be great too! Loki will be happy going for walks or just hanging out with his family getting love and giving so much love in return. Put in an application to learn more about Loki!

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.

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.
