My Story

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

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

Woody is a sweet, silly, easy-going boy who can be a little timid when meeting new people and dogs, but quickly warms up and then loves to play! He loves toys and will even fetch when particularly feeling playful, but is equally content to snooze or play with a toy quietly on his own. He gets along wonderfully with all three of his foster dog siblings, cuddling together and having short play sessions throughout the day. Woody is great with kids - he's very calm, won't knock them down and loves watching over them as they play. He loves riding in the car, walks well on a leash, and is house trained. He doesn't do well in a crate, but doesn't need one as he is a perfect gentleman when left free to roam the house without supervision, even greeting his foster mom with gentle hugs and kisses when she comes home :) He is food-driven and learning not to counter surf, but is very receptive to redirection and positive reinforcement. Woody knows a few commands and loves living the pampered life. He came with heavily matted fur and had to be clipped, so his coat will fill out more over time, but he sits well for nail clippings, being brushed, and especially loves having his paws massaged with moisturizing paw butter. Woody is very happy to have made the transition to indoor pup, and will thrive with a family who has lots of snuggles, toys, and forehead kisses to give!

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.
