My Story

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

This beautiful sweet young boy is Ozzie, brand new and grateful to be in rescue! Ozzie has a great smile and a friendly demeanor. He might be shy for half a minute but he warms up quickly, and he is a very nice mild-mannered boy. He and his sister Olivia are especially close so we feel that he would do great in a home with another female companion to pal around with. Ozzie does well in the car and walks nicely on leash, too. He's good with cats and lived with many of them at his former home. Although he is not a livestock guardian, he would do well with goats and chickens since he has grown up around them. Ozzie would do great in a home with a fenced in yard and a girl dog to pal around with. We can't wait to see this beautiful boy head off to a great home or foster home of his own. He's such a sweet boy and he deserves much better than he has known up until now. We just love him and so will 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.

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.
