This gentle giant is Meka, and he is looking for a furever home that is willing to set an extra place for him in time for the holidays! Although we know very little about Meka's past, this lovely boy is mature with excellent house manners; he is also the pyrfect gentleman on leash walks - it is simply a joy to go on your daily walks with him. In terms of temperament, Meka is calm and laid back - he does not ask for much, a comfortable spot for him to take naps, a few toys, and maybe a four- or two-legged sibling to play with and he is a happy boy. Meka especially likes his regular grooming time, perhaps because he gets your 100% undivided attention - he looks especially proud and handsome once you are all done that you cannot help but take another (or 50 or so) pictures of his pretty face :) Meka is a master at playing at his friend's energy level - if they like to play quietly, he is more than happy to be quiet as a mouse; if they like to play tag in the backyard, Meka is more than happy to join in the fun too. If you are looking for a laid back boy to be your furever companion, Meka may be the pyrfect boy for you!

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.
