My Story

Suzie Q—don’t gaze too long or these gorgeous eyes will hold you in her spell! We like to say Suzie Q has had us hooked on her from day one due to her tender personality and stunning looks! Suzie Q was a stray taken into a local KY rescue, and as that story goes—she was not only underweight, but her coat was one big matt. This special girl has now been groomed, and has what we call the “messy hair”—we can’t wait to see her when her beautiful coat grows back out! Suzie Q walks great on a leash, loves all people and other dogs, and ignores the cats. She is happy to hang out with you but will give any canine buddy a run for their money in play! She crates well and is accident-free indoors—even in boarding she will bark and alert her person! She also will hop right into your backseat to go for a ride. Suzie can be placed with other male dogs or would be fine as an only if her person was home alot and arranged doggie play dates with friends as she just loves to play! She has not been around kids but is gentle so would be fine with children raised around dogs. Looking for a new family member to take with you to run errands, go for a hike, or just laze around on a summer day—Suzie Q thinks she would love that just fine!

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.
