Pepper is aprox 2 year old Female Pitty Mix.  She was taken in from the Broad St Utica boarding faciltiy that was shut down for neglect.  Pepper is a sweetheart!  She loves going on walks, giving kisses and meeting new people.  She is a bit nervous around new things.  She has not been exposed to normal things in a home like brooms, washing machines, etc.  Our foster is doing a great job exposing her to these things so she will be more comfortable in her forever home.  Pepper would be great in a calm home with older kids.  She is good with other dogs when properly introduced.  Since Pepper came to join us at Seventh Heaven , To say that we have all fallen in love with her is an understatement. She loved being in foster care and being spoiled every day. Our baby panda loves to be with people and I’m sure if she could list one of her top 10 favorite things to do, being a couch potato cuddled up with her person would be at the top. Pepper is working on her confidence. She Cowers when she is unsure and Can be fearful in new situations. She loves going on walks and getting ice cream. She also loves to splash in the water. Pepper loves to go for car rides. She Would do best in an only pet home. She is dog selective. If you have another dog and would like to do a meet and greet we can set that up. A Meet and greet with other dogs would be required. Pepper needs an owner that can continue to work with her And help her build her confidence. She loves people and Has never displayed any aggression towards them. show less

My name is Puppy and I certainly act like my namesake!  I used to live with a lovely owner until she went into a nursing home and I ended up without a home and in a shelter. The shelter told Seventh Heaven Rescue that I was 13 years old but I’ve had my teeth checked out by dental specialists and they look way too pearly white for me to be 13, I am probably closer to 9 years old.  Age is just a number anyway right? It is lucky for me that I was sprung from a shelter and am back to living in a home environment with a foster, but I would really love to have a family of my own again to spend my golden years with! My foster mom works full time and since I am such a good boy, she lets me have free reign of the house; you see I do not have accidents and do not get into mischief, reasons why us older guys make the best pets! She calls me her little Velcro because I do love to be stuck to my human’s side, if you are home all day that would be my favorite! Despite taking my job as companion seriously, I know you are busy and won’t bother you, just knowing you are nearby is enough for me! I live with another small dog in my foster home and she and I get along great! We take walks together and my foster mom tells me how well I walk on a leash all the time.  She has been teaching me new tricks too since I am very treat motivated and is impressed with how quickly I learn. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!? My eyesight is not as good as it used to be, and sometimes I don’t hear too well, so my ideal home wouldn’t have young kids that might startle me.  But if kids are a part of your life, I do well with respectful kids regardless of this! I am a very gentle, sweet boy and deserve to be loved by a family of my own very much. show less

Sophie’s name could easily have been Diamond or Ruby. She came from darkness and despair and is growing stronger and more beautiful by the day. She is a truly hidden gem. Sophie was rescued from a decrepit puppy mill where she had serviced her keeper by producing litter after litter of puppies with the first litter likely occurring before she was even one years old. 8 years later, when mammary tumors prevented her from nursing her pups, she was no longer needed and (thank goodness) rescue was able to step in. She came to us dirty, smelly, matted and broken. We were able to clean her up and tend to her medical needs right away. But more importantly, she was lavished with love. We have a dedicated team of fosters who have teamed up to give Sophie all she needs to feel safer and more confident. Slowly but steadily, Sophie has learned to enjoy affection, how to play with other dogs and with toys and how to do her business outside. Sophie will need a quieter home. One without the frenetic energy of small children. She will need someone patient and who is willing to wait for the small steps Sophie is still taking and someone who can enjoy the rewards she shows us every day.  Sophie gets on well with other calm, respectful dogs. She also does well with children but because of her timidness, respectful and dog savvy children who are over the age of 5 would be best. Sophie’s feelings about cats are unknown. show less
