8/1: 4DX tested - positive for Lyme. Treatment started. Doc thinks he's about 5 years old. Foster mom says he's extra loving and playful. Currently not good with male dogs but he wasn't neutered on intake so that may change over time as the hormone levels drop.
If you email us to inquire, watch your email for our autoresponder and please read it.
Only available to rescues or approved adopters in northeastern states (from northeast of Morgantown WV to New England). Scroll down for additional information.
Our dogs are located in southwestern West Virginia and we seek rescue assistance from rescues in northeastern states. We are one of several rescues in the southern portion of the state and are always interested in collaborating with other rescues in our area. Volunteers are needed to foster dogs and drive on transports.
Rescues: We do have transport available to northeastern states. PA-based rescues, we are PA licensed. If you have not pulled from us before, please submit our rescue application and we'll be in touch soon. If you are not located in the northeast, you will need to arrange transport beginning in Lenore, WV.
