Meet our Rookie! This beautiful boy was returned to us through no fault of his own when his adopter was unable to care for him. Rookie is a very sweet boy who has been working on positive training. He is currently about a year old.  We have not cat tested Rookie. His foster mom says:  " He is a great dog that is smart, willing, and only wants to be with you. He would love a hiker!"   If you are interested in meeting Rookie, please complete an application at our website, Please note our adoption requirements and feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.

Please note: All of our dogs are fostered locally a minimum of 2 weeks. Adopting a dog that has been fostered locally is a very important consideration. Animals that are fostered locally in private homes allow the fosters to learn more about the dogs personality and allows for making the best match possible. Also, animals that are transported into our area and placed directly often carry diseases, including parvo and distemper. Animals can also become ill on transports to the northeast, as they are exposed to other animals en route. If you have any questions regarding these diseases and the risks of not adopting locally, please contact your vet. 

Also consider any group that does not require a home visit. If they are not conducting a home visit consider if they are vested in where their animals go. As an organization, we vest a significant amount of time into all of our dogs, including crate training, house breaking, obedience training, and determining each dog's personality to consider making the best match possible.

Please note we are required to identify a breed/breeds to post a dog. We do our best to determine a puppies breed but without both parents present, we are unable to guarantee a puppy's breed.
