My Story

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

The Chipmunk pups are ready for their furever homes, just in time for the new school year! These chipmunks are the most adorable fluff balls, with their puppy love brimming to the top. At their current age, these pups love playing with each other as well as playing tag with their foster siblings. They have all gotten a jumpstart in puppy pre-school, all being superstar students learning everything there is to know about being the most pyrfect puppy. These pups will be placed with an older canine in their new home to learn from and a secure fenced yard to play in. You can easily recognize Theodore with his "crazy" hair, though his pyrsonality is anything but! In fact, little Teddy, as his foster mom lovingly calls him at times, is quite the mellow boy who prefers to understand all the rules of the game before joining in with his siblings. Theodore may be smaller in size, as compared to his brothers, but he more than makes up for it with his independence. While he adores his people and is always up for kisses and cuddles, he is also content with entertaining himself with toys and chews. This little boy has all the pawtential to be your furry best friend. If you open your heart to Theodore, we have no doubt he will love you to the moon and back!

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.

If you can't foster or adopt at this time, please consider helping our Neediest Cases or making a tax-exempt donation by visiting our Donate page.
