Copper is a 3 year old Shar Pei mix boy that just arrived at our rescue on 1/12/13, from a high-kill shelter in NC. He loves people and is very affectionate, but needs to be the only dog in the family. He has not been temperament tested with cats, so we are not sure how he would be with them. Copper is up to date on vaccinations and is neutered, but he is just beginning preliminary treatment for heartworm, which he has tested positive for. He is not showing any symptoms and is expected to make a full recovery. (Treatment can be continued after adoption if he finds his family before he's done : ) He's a medium-sized boy, about 40-45 lbs. currently, but we are hoping to put a little more weight on him. He is currently in a great foster home perfecting his house-training and doggie manners and is doing very well with his Foster Family.
All of our adoptable pets are located at our home kennel location in Frankfort, NY, which is in Central NY State, about 45 miles east of Syracuse and 90 miles west of Albany.
Adoption fee/donation is $250, which helps to cover their rescue pull fees, transport north following rescue, initial veterinary care and maintenance/preventative care while they are with us. All pups under 6 months of age and any dog that is adopted out prior to being spayed or neutered will be adopted out with a Spay/Neuter Contract required at time of adoption.
If you are interested in adopting one of our guys or gals, please contact us via email at Rescue@BrandyKegKennels.com or via phone at 315-895-7978 for an Adoption Application.

Rescue Group Info...
We are a small kennel and foster-based rescue group in Central New York State. The majority of the dogs and puppies that we rescue come from high-kill shelters in the South, primarily NC and SC- we rescue them and bring them north to give them the second chance that they deserve at a happy, healthy life and to help them find their forever homes with families that will cherish them for the wonderful individuals that they are.
You are welcome to call or email us at any time to set up an appointment to come up and meet all of our wonderful boys and girls. Our home rescue kennel is located at 749 Ball Road, Frankfort, NY 13340, though we do have additional dogs and puppies in foster homes throughout Herkimer and Oneida Counties.
Prior to adopting a dog or puppy from our group, you must complete an Adoption Application. Once approved, then we can make arrangements for you to meet the dogs and pups that you are interested in. You are welcome to bring any existing pets to meet them as well, to make sure that the new potential family member is a good fit with the entire family.
If the dog or puppy that you are considering adopting in to your family is not already spayed or neutered at the time of adoption, then your Adoption Contract will include a Spay/Neuter Contract, to ensure that this procedure is completed at the appropriate time by the veterinarian of your choice.
Our adoption fees vary by age and whether the spay/neuter has been completed at the time of rescue, and will always be listed with the description of the individual dog or puppy.
