My Story

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

This adorable girl puppy is Shasta, and she is as sweet as can be! Shasta and her brother and sister came to rescue from a farm in Georgia. Both parents are big gorgeous good-natured Great Pyrenees and Shasta seems to take right after them. Shasta is a mild-mannered puppy and seems to be the more submissive of the group. Shasta is friendly and loves everybody she meets and she does great with all of the other dogs. This girl loves to play so the perfect home for Shasta would have another male dog or two for playmates. Shasta will need a home with a fenced in yard and a family with Great Pyrenees or large breed experience. So far her days have been spent outdoors on the farm, so she will need to be taught housetraining and indoor living skills, and everything else a growing pup needs to learn. This big gorgeous girl is ready for a great home and family of her own and she is ready to travel to her new home!

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.
