Sometimes when we get a dog we just know the name they come with isn’t right, no matter how dignified a name, such as Hector.

When we met this dog we knew 2 things:

  • He loves to eat
  • He’s a chicken.

So, meet Scooby! This boy was set to be euthanized in a downstate shelter but was saved by the kennel staff and a few advocates just in time! Scooby is polite with other dogs and would do best in a house with adults or older children as he is a bit scared of life. He is about a year old and once he puts on some weight he will be around 70-80 lbs!

Adoption Requirements

  • All applicants must be at least 21 years of age.
  • Any children in the home or visiting regularly should be at least 5 years of age.
  • Any current animals in the home must be spayed or neutered.
  • We adopt to locations within a 2 hour radius from the Albany NY area (excluding Canada).
  • We DO NOT ship dogs. It is important to us that you meet a dog prior to adoption.
  • Opposite sex placements only. Exceptions made only when the dog in the adoptive home is a SENIOR for its breed (at our discretion) and the dog being adopted is a puppy.
  • Everyone in the home must be in agreement about adding a new dog to the household.
  • You must own your home to adopt a puppy. If you rent we will ONLY consider an adult placement (over the age of 2).
  • If you rent please verify that your landlord will allow pit bulls (we will check). And renters must have a 1 year rental history at current location.
  • If you own, verify that your home owner’s insurance covers the Pit bull breed (if not, we would be happy to give you the name of companies that do not breed discriminate).
  • Please verify that your community does not have any breed specific legislation.
