My Story

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

Symphony’s Orchestra was born on New Year’s Day and they are ready to take on the world! This litter of 5 (2 sisters and 3 brothers) are being raised with their mom and the other dogs and cats in their foster home. Like their mama, they are very smart, playful, and happy kids! Oboe, with the unique markings on his face, is a very loving, easy-going boy with a gentle nature. He loves to play with his siblings, his mama and the bigger foster kids in his home. They love to squeak the toys; play keep away and then all pile on top of one another for a nap :) Oboe loves people and snuggles and has quickly learned to go outside for potty time. He really loves it when they all get to go out into the big yard to explore. This handsome fellow will need a home with an older big canine sibling to learn from and continue his explorations with in a securely fenced yard. He has been around children and cats and really is looking forward to meeting his new family—will that be 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.

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.
