My Story

You can see more beautiful dogs by visiting our Adoptable Dogs page.

This adorable little girl is Tiki, a precious young Maremma brand new to rescue. Tiki is the happiest little girl, and friendly as can be. She is doing well walking on a leash and learning everything pups need to know. Tiki is sweet and smart and seems to learn quickly. She loves other dogs so she would do great with another energetic young male dog for a playmate in her new home. She loves playing and running around the play yard with all of the other dogs at her foster. Her best pal is a young Pyrenees boy and they love to run and play and tire each other out. She's such a friendly little girl looking for a great home or foster home who they will continue working with her on training. The Maremma breed is very similar to Great Pyrenees in both looks and temperament. Tiki came to rescue when her owners could no longer keep her and she was brought to a crowded Animal Control. Thankfully they reached out to our rescue to help find this lovely girl a great home. So if you are looking for a beautiful girl who gets along well with everybody (including doing well meeting strangers), please consider adopting this adorable pup!

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.
