My Story

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

This gentle, loving, happy guy is Runt and he’s lots of fun! Runt loves to run around in the yard with his doggy friends. He has a great personality and loves being with his people but he’s not needy. Runt does great with other dogs and is very respectful of the kitties. He loves to be brushed and pet and is comfortable laying down next to his person allowing them to give him belly rubs :) Runt quickly learned how wonderful people are as well as the joy of toys and running and playing freely! He is an active boy, but a normal amount of activity will keep him happy. Runt will make a wonderful, loving pet. He’s happiest around his humans and doggy companions and will make himself right at home. Runt's gentle nature would be great for children raised around big dogs where he'd be a great friend for them and dog-savvy cats too! If your family is looking for an amazing canine companion and your home is full of love and patience, and a large, fenced yard, put in an application today to learn more about Runt!

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.
