Armed with a harness and leash, Mattie will be your pyrfect companion, whether it is for a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood, a quick stop at the local coffee shop, or a relaxing hike in the woods. Mattie ADORES her foster brother, and she is crossing her paws in the hopes that she can have a furever canine sibling of her own as well.

Mattie loves her people, and we are pawsitive that it will be the highlight of your day coming home to this happy, smiling face, who flips over for belly rubs the second you open the door. If you welcome this adorable girl into your home, Mattie will seal your fate as her best friend furever with her first kiss on your cheek!

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.
