Syris is a shy sweet boy.  After reading his story below you'll understand why is is still coming out of his shell.  He has a beautiful rusty brown coat and huge green/brown eyes.  We think Syris is around 3 years old.  He weighs around 30 pounds.

This is Syris's background -- on the evening of December 7, in partnership with Broward County officials Animal Aid, Inc. was able to rescue 42 dogs from a horrific hoarding situation.  All of the dogs were living with a family in a two-bedroom apartment.  The conditions were unimaginable. Among the dogs was a litter of eight two-month old puppies.

In spite of terrible environment, these dogs are amazing.  With the exception of the puppies, most of them came in undernourished.  In spite of their awful environment these dogs are amazing.  They are so warm, friendly and well behaved, even while getting bathed.  Not a single one has snapped at us or misbehaved in the slightest way.  We are giving them loads of attention and love, and they’re already responding great.

The dogs are all small to mid sized.  The breed mixes include Weimaraner, Irish Setter, Wire Haired Terrier, Poodle, Greyhound, other Terrier and Bulldog.

Complete an application for a dog or cat. Our board will review the application to determine if you and the chosen pet are a good match.
