My Story

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

This absolutely gorgeous Pyrenees mix girl is Shelby and she is a doll! Shelby is the absolute sweetest girl. She adores playing with other dogs, big and small, and loves children. She is such a sweet and happy young girl. Shelby came to rescue in Georgia when she went unclaimed with a hurt leg at a high kill shelter. Thankfully we got her right to the vets and she received laser treatments on her leg. It wasn't broken but had damage, likely due to a leg hold trap. Thankfully she has recovered beautifully and is doing fantastic now in rescue. Shelby is a happy playful pup who is great with everybody she meets and this nice girl would absolutely love a great home of her own. A fenced in yard and a playmate or two would be perfect for Shelby. This sweet and sassy girl has been adored by everyone who has been lucky enough to meet her. She was such a good patient at the vets office, and seemed so grateful for every bit of kindness and care she received. Shelby will make an amazing companion for some lucky family. Could it be yours?

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.
