volunteers have temperament tested those dogs displaying the GHF logo in
their bio on the date indicated. The evaluation and information
provided is accurate, only as of that date. All others are listed
solely as a courtesy.
PLEASE BE AWARE that you need to check people out before handing
over your dog to someone you do not know. There are unscrupulous people
who appear to be good adopters so be cautious and check references,
especially asking for a neighbor's phone number so you can be sure that
the information about them is accurate. We recommend a TRANSFER
OF OWNERSHIP agreement so that you can have some written
agreement about your dog's future situation in the event it does not
work out for the person to keep the dog. It is important to insure that
your dog does not eventually land in a shelter where he or she could be
euthanized. Instead, the person agrees in writing to notify you so
that you can then step in and take an appropriate course of action.

TROY: A young BC mix, Troy is
a happy guy though a tad shy at first, meeting new people. Once he
relaxes, he's very eager to bond with someone. He's a sweet, good
natured guy having some worries being in the shelter. Troy gets
along with other dogs well and passed his temperament test done by a GHF
volunteer, though needs some reassurance to feel safe. He was a
stray in New York and is ready for adoption.
The shelter is open to the public 7-3pm Monday through Friday. The
shelter phone number is 315-343-1803.

Odessa is an eight year old
border collie/Aussie mix who is looking for a new home due to her owners'
divorce. Her coat was shaven shortly before these photos were taken
- she is a traditional long coated dog. She has lived in one
home since she was a pup, and needs a quiet home with a fenced yard.
Odessa has made up her own amusing herding game with a large ball, and
would love to play with a human companion. See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqWIRVJFtCI
Odessa is good with cats and very small dogs but is very uncomfortable
with dogs her size or larger. For more information on Odessa, please
contact Dan at 315 480 5240.
Sam is a dear sweet boy who
was reported to the dog catcher and brought to a veterinary office back in
July when he was spotted wandering in a rural area near Syracuse, NY. He
is probably a border-collie black lab mix, basically healthy and fit,
about 6-7 years old, neutered, up-to-date with his shots, and very, very
nice. He has been well-cared for at sometime in the past: is respectful,
gentle, well mannered, knows basic commands, shakes hands, and appears to
get along with everyone, including other dogs and cats. He would be a
lovely companion in anyone’s home, but he will need someone willing to
take care of his skin allergies: he was missing a lot of hair when found
– it is now almost all grown back and expected to return in full, but he
will need special shampoos and medication for the rest of his life.
Please think about bringing this
good dog home – he is certain to more than repay any chance he is
given: you only have to look into his eyes to see how special he is. He can
be found at Lake Country Veterinary Clinic on Cherry Valley Turnpike
(Route 20), Marcellus, NY, phone 315-673-4858.

Murphy was rescued from a
shelter in Tennessee and is currently being fostered by a family while he
waits for his forever home. He is a handsome and friendly Border Collie
mix that loves other dogs and is good with small children. He loves to
take long walks, is good on a leash, and likes to play fetch. He has all
vaccinations up to date and is neutered. He is well behaved but if he is
not exercised regularly he can be destructive. He also displayed some
guarding issues with other dogs with food and toys but after constant
exposure to his foster family's dog he has gotten over most of those
issues. He is loyal and obedient and deserves a good home with a patient
and active person or family. He will go in his crate when told and can
spend short amounts of time there, but prefers to be with people. At night
he likes to sleep at the foot of the bed. You have to be a real "dog
person" for a boy like Murphy, but for the right family or person he
will make an exceptional companion.
Though we live in Tennessee, if
someone is really interested in adopting Murphy, we can travel to
accommodate a meeting. Please contact "Roll Over Rescue" in Clarksville
931 302 4705. They have a re-homing fee of $150.
