My Story

Ricky is a gorgeous boy who wishes to be your best friend furever! Like most of our young boys, Ricky is a big fan of playtime - preferably outdoors when the weather is nice so he can run as fast as the wind. On warmer days, Ricky prefers to chill indoors with his variety of chew toys to conserve his energy :) Ricky has a curious nature, especially when it comes to food - he is always eager to try new food or treats, and so far, he has loved each and every single morsel that has been offered! In addition to playing, chewing toys, and trying new treats, Ricky is also busy learning basic cues. After all, one cannot be the bestest boy not knowing a few cues and tricks, right? This young boy has all the pawtential to be your loyal sidekick, all you need to do is to open your heart and your home to this lovely boy...well, that and get your application submitted ASAP! Ricky is eagerly waiting to be your furever BFF!

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.
