Winston - Armonk, NY
Winston has stolen our hearts. What a sad story. He is a 10 yr old male castrated Pit Bull who weighs in at 50 lbs.
We found Winston at a local municipal shelter where he had been living for months. He rarely got out of his kennel and was not socialized with many new people. We decided to bring him to our shelter to try to give him a better quality of life while he waits for his perfect home to come along. It takes some time for Winston to build trust with a new person but when he does he is incredibly loyal and loving.
There is nothing this boy loves more than to sit at the feet of his person and just relax in their presence. He is definitely worth the effort because once he loves someone it is for life! He has been through a lot in his life and is so deserving of a forever home. He has been through strict obedience training and has excelled in the routine of training. He also thoroughly enjoys agility training and taking long walks.
Whoever adopts Winston will need to have the dedication to commit to bonding with him and continuing his training so he can be the best dog he can be for the rest of his long and happy life. In a perfect world, he would be the only pet in an adult only home, but he does have the potential to live with another easy-going female dog. Lets find Winston his forever home!
Kayne - Horseheads, NY (1/4/20)
Meet Kayne! He is a 9 yr old, 88 lb, neutered male Rottie.
Kayne is a senior dog that came to us from animal control. We estimated his age to be 9-10 yrs. Kayne has the sweetest disposition and just loves people but he needs to be an only pet. We recommend a home with older children only.
In terms of his special needs, well his hips are not the greatest. He also sometimes falls due to nerve damage in his paws. We started injections of Adequan with the addition of Meloxicam and Gabapetin for pain. He is also Lyme tested positive so he might have flare ups.
We are working on getting some weight off his hips and hope to continue in keeping the weight off. He loves short walks and sleeping on a memory foam orthopedic bed. We do what we can in a shelter environment but this guy really needs a retirement home to spend the rest of his days. Please help if you can!
The shelter would like Kayne to be adopted relatively locally. For all information please contact Horseheads Community Animal Shelter. Located at: 150 Wygant Rd. Horseheads, NY 14845. Website: http://www.horseheadscommunityanimalshelter.com. Email: email@example.com
Cole - Horseheads, NY (1/4/20)
Meet Cole! Cole is a 9 yr old, 45 lb, neutered male Beagle/Lab mix.
Cole is a senior dog that just loves walks, human interaction, and most of all food. Which we have to limit because he loves it so much! Now that Cole is a bit forward in years things are a bit slower in his joints and rightly so. He is Lyme positive and will need meds when he has flare ups.
Despite his special needs it doesn't stop this boy from enjoying himself. He has been within a shelter environment for over a year with being adopted once but returned. Poor guy. With age sometimes he needs to go potty more often then younger dogs and could have a few accidents if people aren't paying attention.
He likes his time with his humans cuddling on the couch, walking, just being included. Cole has to be the only pet in the home. A fence might be worthwhile but not necessary. He does have a hound nose and will track what he smells so a leash would be required if no fenced yard. This boy has been waiting for his home far too long and really deserves to find a family to love him. He is SO loveable!
The shelter would like Cole to be adopted relatively locally. For all information please contact Horseheads Community Animal Shelter. Located at: 150 Wygant Rd. Horseheads, NY 14845. Website: http://www.horseheadscommunityanimalshelter.com. Email: office@horseheadscommunityanimalshelter
