My Story

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

Patty is an adorable Pyr/Briard mix girl looking for an experienced home to be her furever family in time for the holiday season! Although we do not have much information about her history her unique coloring is likely contributed by her Pyr/Briard pawrents. Since coming into rescue, Patty has settled in well and is gets along great with her canine foster siblings. This smart girl is confident and not easily fazed by a novel environment; it appears that Patty is born to be a leader, as she has no trouble being in charge and leading the way for the other pups. These days, Patty can often be found playing with her wide variety of toys (chew toys, stuffed toys, squeaky toys, you name it, she loves them all :) or chilling outdoors with her foster siblings. If you invite her in for brushing or cuddling, however, she is more than happy to oblige and will cuddle with you for as long as you let her! This young, unique-looking girl will no doubt thrive in an experienced home where her pawrents can dedicate time to her training, and continue to guide her as she matures. Patty will need a secure visible fenced yard where she can run and play and a male dog companion for company. We are pawsitive that Patty will mature into your furever best friend in no time!

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.
