Meet Dani

Meet our Dani! This sweet girl was rescued locally. Dani is an abuse case and has several injuries, including multiple upper and lower jaw fractures as well as a fracture to one of the bones in her left ear that assists with hearing. Dani underwent weekly procedures for about 6 months and several surgeries and is now healed. Unfortunately given the severity of the abuse, Dani will never appear normal but don't tell her that!

Due to the abuse, Dani suffers from Microcephaly. Dani also has severe separation anxiety/stress induced anxiety. We have seen numerous specialists for this and Dani has been on multiple prescription medication but unfortunately none of these have assisted. We believe that much of this is due to her brain injury.

Despite all that she has been through, Dani is simply the happiest dog! She does not know a stranger, 2 legged or 4 legged! In typical lab fashion, she is an active girl but not overly active!

Dani has earned her CGC, TDI, and CGCA titles.

Dani cannot be crated. She is about 90% housebroken but will have accidents once she is stressed and she will spin in her accidents.

If you are interested in meeting Dani, please complete an application at our website, Please note our adoption requirements and feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.

Please note: All of our dogs are fostered locally a minimum of 2 weeks. Adopting a dog that has been fostered locally is a very important consideration. Animals that are fostered locally in private homes allow the fosters to learn more about the dogs personality and allows for making the best match possible. Also, animals that are transported into our area and placed directly often carry diseases, including parvo and distemper. Animals can also become ill on transports to the northeast, as they are exposed to other animals in route. If you have any questions regarding these diseases and the risks of not adopting locally, please contact your vet.

Also consider any group that does not require a home visit. If they are not conducting a home visit consider if they are vested in where their animals go. As an organization, we invest a significant amount of time into all of our dogs, including crate training, house breaking, obedience training, and determining each dog's personality to consider making the best match possible.

Help Orphan Puppies is registered with the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets. Our Rescue Registration Number is RR047.

Please note that Petfinder requires us to identify a breed/breeds. We do our best to determine a puppy's breed but without both parents present, we are unable to guarantee a puppy's breed.
