This big beautiful girl is Olivia and she is as sweet as can be! Olivia is a large girl who came in extra fluffy but had to be shaved due to severe matting. Her coat is growing back in beautifully now! Olivia came to rescue from an overcrowded Georgia shelter moments before she was out of time. We found out about her at the very last minute and we are so thankful she is safe now in rescue. Olivia is a sweet girl who does well with other dogs. She walks nicely on leash and likes to ride in the car. She is very clean in her kennel and very eager to please. She loves everyone including kids. She also loves blankets but doesn’t care about toys. Olivia is learning basic commands like sit and doing well. She would do best with a securely fenced yard. We are told she hardly barks :) Olivia is a nice easy-going gal and we know the right family is out there for her and cannot wait to see her get a great home and family of her own!

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.
