Posted Breed: Whippet. Mallory is an energetic and loving dog! She would make an excellent agility dog. She loves to play and lounge in the sun.
A word from one of her favorite volunteers: Mallory is a big firecracker in a tiny package. She loves to carry and play with a stuffed "baby". As fast as lightening, this small bundle of energy will literally run circles around you.( and I mean actual circles. ) I dare you to catch her! throw her a tennis ball and she will kindly return it to you to to be thrown again, sometimes placing it further away and then rolling it back to you with her nose or roll over belly up and just wiggle till she's ready to go again. Mallory would love to have a fenced yard. She is a little leary of strangers, so visiting and spending time to get to know her would be best for all. She will fall head over heels when you gain her trust. Please fill out our dog adoption application online at pawscrossedny.org if you would like to meet Mallory
Posted Breed: Whippet / Australian Shepherd. Sydney is a 4 year old 42lb aussie/whippet mix who is in needs of a new home. She is a high energy doggy when participating in activities like fetch and walks, however she also is independent and likes to sit and look out the window for hours and entertains herself quite well that way. Sydney is crate-trained and home-trained and has been learning to be polite when going out of doors and waiting for mealtime. Sydney was adopted into a home with another dog and got along great at first. However, as both dogs got older they started to not get along and after going through professional training the owners realized that Sydney is in need of a one pet home where she can feel safe and get all of the attention she deserves. She is shy at first, however once she warms up she is very loyal and loving. Sydney is a very smart dog and loves to learn. She started professional training in May to build her confidence and was quick to learn basic obedience tasks such as sit, stay and lay down although when in new situations it takes her a little bit of time to follow. The more she and her owner practice, the better she gets. She does great walking close to the leader's leg on walks, however she is still working on becoming more confident when other dogs are present. Sydney has had exposure and done well with a newborn, however has not been exposed to young children and would do best in a home with no young children. She is a little nervous and with her training she has gotten quite more comfortable and is hoping to find a companion or family who will continue to help her build her confidence and love and care for her the way she will love and care for them.
