Adoption Corner! 
Introducing Miles!
Miles was recently rescued by Unchained New York after living the majority of his life outdoors. When they first met him he was chained and had no shelter. He was provided with shelter and we checked on him as often as possible to ensure his basic needs were met. It broke our hearts knowing he sat through hurricane sandy, snowstorms, heat waves and rainstorms with no relief. He went without food, lacked access to water, suffered from parasites, it was no easy life for this dog. One year to the week we first me him, Unchained New York secured his surrender and he's now free from his life on a chain. He is a happy, playful dog who knows basic obedience and is looking for a foster home! Miles would prefer a home with non-dominant dogs. Contact

Introducing 3-315!
