Awesome dog alert!!  Meet our latest addition and total beauty queen, Cassidy!  We call her Cass for short, sometimes Baby Cass.  The vet tells us that Cassidy is approximately 1 year old, however, we wouldn't be surprised if she were even a little younger than that.  Her teeth are just so white and she has so many puppy like behaviors.  Cassidy has just recently arrived in her foster home in GA, after luckily being saved from a shelter there.  So, we are still learning a lot about her and will continue to update this page as we learn more.  But, for now, we'll tell you what seems to be the case so far.  Cassidy is a total lovebug!  She loves people and loves other dogs!  She has a great time playing with them or just hanging out in your lap on the couch.  So far, no accidents at all in her foster home.  She is great in her crate and goes right in when you throw a treat in for her.  She is tremendously food motivated, which is nice when trying to train a new dog.  She does seem to know "sit" although sometimes it takes her just a moment to get there.  She is very much a puppy still and has a good deal of energy so she will need to get her exercise!  It would be ideal for her to be adopted into a home with another playful dog and a home with a fenced in yard that she could play in, when supervised.  She is pretty good on a leash, but will still need a little work in that area.  She does tend to jump on people so that will need to be worked on going forward and the foster mom will continue working on that also.  We do not know how Cassidy is with cats. 

We know Cassidy weighs 32 pounds now, so she's a perfect medium sized dog.  Her mix is hard to figure but we are thinking Shepherd/Golden/Lab mix.  She has a beautiful fluffy golden coat.  Because Cassidy is so young, we are looking for an adopter that will be home a good bit for her.  Those that work full time out of the house for 6+ hours at a time will not be a good fit for this young, active little gal. 

Update on Cassidy 5/7/17:  What a gem this little girl is!  She has never had an accident in her foster home.  She is really great in her crate.  So good with the other foster dogs in her foster home.  Still working on leash walking a bit and jumping, but truly a joy of a dog!  She is so smart and learning quickly that her foster mom will give her much more love if she comes up and sits in front her rather than jumping on her.  That is her thing now - just sit in front of you for love.  She loves to play with toys and teddy bears and anything she can get her mouth on so probably best if crated when not home.  And, what a beauty too!  She is actually up to 40 lbs now that she's got some good food and a routine going!  We are going to require a fenced in yard for Cass until we are certain that scary things won't ever "spook" her anymore on her leash walks. 

Any applicants must understand that Cassidy will be transported to either MD or NJ once their application is fully approved.  So, applicants need to be willing to make the trip to either MD or NJ.  Cassidy is spayed and up to date on her shots. 

Just in case any potential adopters may be looking to adopt 2 dogs together, Cass and Lexie (who is also listed on our site) have become best buds.  Not a requirement by any means. 

~~~~The Last Resort is a foster based rescue. Our dogs are in our foster homes all up and down the east coast. We do not have a facility in which you can visit. We find this a huge benefit because we learn our dogs and are able to educate our adopters on what it’s like to have them live in your home. Part of our process, once pre-approved, is to speak with the foster for the dog you’re interested in. If you’re still interested in adopting from our rescue the first step is to complete our adoption application online at
