My Story

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

This gorgeous Pyrenees boy is Snowball and he is an absolute gem! Snowball is a total sweetheart who warms up quickly to people and seeks out attention and affection. He loves playing with all of the other dogs at his foster and making friends with all of them, so he would do great with another dog for a companion in his new home. He is a very good boy who walks gently and nicely on a leash. Snowball came to rescue from a very crowded shelter in Georgia and thankfully we were able to get him safe to rescue. Snowball has the most gorgeous fluffy coat and soft grey ears. He was matted when he came to rescue so did need a haircut, which is now growing back in nicely! We just love this big handsome fellow and so will you :)

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.
