DREXEL has been adopted!


UPDATE 4/7/17: Drexel is safe in board and train and will be available for foster 5/1/17


*URGENT URGENT URGENT* DREXEL WILL DIE if we cannot find a foster home for him! His days are numbered at the shelter, we HAVE to have placement for him by 4/14/17. He is a staff favorite but there is no more room in the kennels. THE SHELTER LOVES DREXEL SO MUCH THEY HAVE SENT HIM TO A DOGGY TRAINING CAMP AT THEIR EXPENSE!!! They even did research to find a positive reinforcement trainer (with NO shock collars or prong collars) with Corso experience!!!  Drexel was found as a stray and taken to a New Jersey shelter. They have given him great care, neutered him, given him his vaccinations and even removed a mass on his shoulder (which was benign). He is a big fluffy boy who is fabulous with people and loves to play ball. He needs work with not walking HIMSELF on the leash and being less mouthy. He tends to think the leash belongs his in mouth so we can control the walk!! He lived very briefly in a foster home with another large dog and a cat, although he would need more time to determine if a home with kitties is the best fit for him. We need an approved foster or adopter to step up for this big guy before its too late for him!! The vets have estimated Drexel to be 4-5 years old.

      I’m glad I’m not the only person who sees the potential companion here.

  2. Adam T Reply

    I have put an application in to adopt him. Please try to expedite the process so he doesn’t have to be put down! Adam T. My family and I would gladly drive the 1000 miles to come and get him. He can enjoy our large midwestern fenced in yard with friends.

    Ashley my fiancé Amber works at Banfield Pet Hospital here in Columbus i’m just waiting for her to get back to me with the Vet info to complete the application. We’d be happy to welcome Drexel to our home but if Bruce above works out faster we’ll be happy Drexel has been saved and hope we can help in the future. Will complete application today and be in touch.

  13. Mari Woltering Reply

    I applied to be a foster/volunteer MONTHS ago and have never heard ANYTHING. Can you tell me why?

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Mari,
      Ill be happy to look into your application and contact you privately.

  14. Lori Cafeo Reply

    How is he with children? I would love him.

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Lori, Drexel will need a home with children 16+.

  15. Chelle Reply

    Has Drexel found a home? We are on file with you

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Chelle, Drexel is still looking for a foster! Ill be happy to look for your application and contact you privately.

    On behalf of CCR, I would like to thank everybody who has offered to help. I would also like to clarify a few things because we have received several negative comments. First of all, it is difficult to know what’s going on behind the scenes when you are not behind the scenes. I understand that that goes both ways and we ask for your positive comments and support as always. It is not as easy as just letting the first person to foster Drexel just pick up the dog and go. We have legal and insurance regulations we must abide by. Clearly, we know this dog better than any of you, and thats still not very much! Please also keep in mind that we dont have volunteer time to post everything we know about the dog on the website, so what you see is a snap shot. Again, please keep the comments positive and as always, we appreciate your support.

    As an update on Drexel, he is safe and doing very well. We were able to get a sponsored board and train and that is where is he at currently. While he is in training, we will work to finalize his CCR foster home.

  19. Barbara Wegernoski Reply

    Hello Ashley,
    I jyst seen this ad for Drexel. Has he found an adopted home?
    I will adopt him. I di not have the application in as I just found your website, but I see there is a 4 week processing time.
    Please let me know what optionsxare available to help so he doesn’t have to be put down.
    Thank you

  20. CCR - Ashley Reply

    Hi Barbara,
    Please feel free to apply! He is still available, but he is safe. All of our dogs are in foster care before being adopted out, so Drexel is safe, but still looking for his forever home.

  21. Barbara Reply

    Hello Ashley
    Thank, that us great news! Unfortunately I just read throufg the website a bit more and see that dogs are not shipped outside the continental US. I’m from Canada.
    Should I still apply and take my chances that this rule may change?
    Have a great day.

  22. CCR - Ashley Reply

    Unfortunately you are correct, we cannot adopt dogs outside the continental US. This is something we have tried to change many times without any success. In cases like yours we would refer you to the Cane Corso Rescue Canada network!

  23. Barbara Reply

    Thank you! I hope you have a Happy Easter!

I have older nephew and nieces that would be around in pre-teen girl young 13 year old nephew. THey are high energy but so good with their dog and mine. MY worry is the 18 month old when she comes they can have the downstairs. DO u think another dog at this age would be approiate fit?

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Chris, we cannot adopt to homes with intact dogs, as our dogs typically react very negatively to that. We would never want to set up any dog or family for failure.

  27. Davette Fowlkes Reply
