Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). This gorgeous hunk of dog is our Baby! But as you can see from his photos, Baby wasn’t always the sturdy dog you see before you now. When he came to us in 2010, he was a starved 2 year old dog, wandering the streets of Brooklyn, weighing only 36 lbs. He was nursed back to health by the loving volunteers of 11th hour, and has been waiting ever since for a home to call his own. Despite his size, Baby is a sweetheart, with lots of female volunteers for friends. His social skills could use some polishing, but it’s not easy to improve yourself when you don’t have a special someone in your life to work with you. He does know some basic commands, though, and he loves to show them off! He’s extremely smart, loves to play fetch, and knows to “drop it” and “leave it” when he brings back a toy. He also loves car rides & most of the time he walks nicely on leash. Baby is great with humans, affectionate & eager to please. But because of his strong prey drive, he would do best in a home without other animals. If you can’t adopt Baby right now, but would still like to help him, why not foster him? Either way, you get a dog that’s incredibly handsome and fun!

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). My name is Two Socks but my friends call me Tucker. Although I’m 9 years old, I still have plenty of life in me and I’m still searching for a home to call my own. I get along with respectful adults, but children are not my thing. For some reason, call me a baby, they scare me & I get defensive. I would prefer a home where I would get the attention. I'm on my best behavior in the house - you can trust me to be home for a couple hours without getting in trouble! You can leave me in a crate if you prefer, I don’t mind. But don’t forget to let me run around because I do like to run! I don’t really bark much & I’m not mouthy. I like to play with other dogs and you can take me to the dog park if you’d like, but I cannot be in a home with them. I love my people and do not like to share. I also LOVE to play. If you throw the ball for me, I will love you forever. I know basic obedience and I am also housebroken! Please give me a chance, will you? Fill out an application on me and come meet me. I promise you won’t be sorry! Be sure to mention my name - TWO SOCKS!

      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). My name is Rocky Lab and I’m a Black Lab mix! I was picked up as a stray and was living in a kill shelter until, thankfully, Eleventh Hour Rescue came to save me! I now reside at Eleventh Hour and I have a lot of volunteer buddies that always have a lot of nice things to say about me. They take me on trail walks, to the park and they even work with me on my fun learning skills! They tell me that I’m such a good boy in the car, too! I know “sit” and “down” and will always do them nicely for a yummy snack. I do get along well with other canine friends, but as always, a meet and greet with a furry friend is a "must" before I find my new home! Cats are not my “cup of tea” but that’s okay, I would rather have all of the attention anyway. My favorite toy is my red Frisbee and you can usually find me running around with it in my mouth. I’m such a silly boy! Don’t forget to fill out an application to foster or adopt me! Ask for Rocky Lab!

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Rockaway, NJ
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Paris' foster family adores her - she is a quiet dog and rarely barks. She is quite the couch potato - she loves to lie right next to you as close as she can, with her head on your lap, wanting to be petted. She loves belly rubs & head scratches. Paris is housetrained and would do great with a family with respectful children. The children in her foster home have taught her a few tricks - she knows "sit", "paw" and "lie down". Paris needs to be walked on a leash unless you have a fenced-in yard - she loves to chase "critters" if given the chance. Paris loves people, but she is selective about dog friends so she should be the only dog in the house. She is a very loving, sweet dog looking for a warm bed & a family to snuggle with. If you would like to meet Paris, please complete an adoption application & be sure to mention her name.

      Breed: Unknown-Whippet Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Rockaway, NJ
      Posted Breed: Whippet / Mixed (short coat). Gentle, sweet little Meep was found by a rescuer huddled in her cage at a kill shelter. She had such a nervous stomach when she arrived in her foster home - sick almost every day but it didn't stop her from enjoying being with a family. She is on the road to full recovery under the treatment of an integrative vet (donations from fosters). She has been on a raw diet with small frequent meals with supplements: Breakfast, lunch, dinner, evening treat and a bedtime meal. It takes her no time at all to fall in love - Meep is a professional snuggler. She loves other dogs, too, but it takes her a while to warm up - she prefers people. When she goes to the dog park she loves to show off how fast she is. She can hold her own with bigger dogs (or at least outrun them). You couldn't ask for a more docile, polite pup - she's a lady on the leash, waits quietly by the door to let you know she needs to go out, wouldn't think of chewing anything but a bone, a crate was just not needed. She's even a great co-pilot on car rides, settles down right away. She's just happy to be with her pack, there's no high energy to burn off. Being a very sensitive sighthound, Meep would do best in a calm, peaceful household. Large families with chaos or stress would make her anxious & affect her health so we feel she would do best in a home with older children. Meep does respond well to gentle consistency. She deserves a furever family to love her. Maybe that would be you? If you would like to be that family, then fill out an adoption application & be sure to mention her name - Meep (VIXEN SCAS)

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). There isn't enough space on this page to say all the wonderful things about Mr. Jackson Browne! Jackson would be the most wonderful addition to any home without children and with people who take charge! You see, Mr. Browne can sometimes be over protective of his family, especially children. He guards the house and his people that he loves so he needs some direction and a strong leader. That being said, he has a personality unlike any other pup. He's sweet, playful, silly, loving, and knows when to RELAX!! He's a great cuddler and will curl up next to you, even in the smallest of spaces. He loves his belly rubs, so be prepared when he stretches out his paws to you! Jackson also loves to go on walks and adventures and ESPECIALLY loves the water!! He pulls slightly on the leash, but he is great in the car. Once Jackson meets you, he LOVES you, but it does take time. He is generally good with meeting dogs and people outside on the leash, but sometimes he gets nervous so make sure to properly introduce him first! Again, Jackson is friendly with most dogs, but can be dog selective. Jackson is housetrained, knows basic commands, and listens very well. Jackson can be trained easily. He is the most lovable, most precious dog and he will love you completely. If you'd like to meet Jackson, please fill out an application today, he's sure to put a smile on your face!

      Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Rockaway, NJ
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Shar Pei / Mixed (short coat). Meet Tin Tin, a handsome black Lab mix who's almost 5 years old. Tin Tin is a very loving and playful dog. He is very good on a leash and loves to run. Tin Tin loves everyone he meets, but he can get scared if you overwhelm him. Tin Tin LOVES other dogs and plays very well with every dog he has met. He is even ok with cats!!! He is a very goofy boy who acts like a cat by rubbing up against you for some love. Update – May 2014: Tin Tin was picked up as a stray in 2012 and has lived in the rescue kennel for most of his young life. He has been in foster care since March with a family that has 5 other dogs and is doing well. Tin Tin took some time to adjust to the change and to learn to trust that his people will be there for him. Consistency was needed in his routine and he has thrived in a home environment. He is now housetrained and will take rewards from your hand nicely. He learns quickly and takes verbal correction well. Tin Tin can be picky about what food he will eat and it took some time for us to find a food that he likes and will eat consistently. He is now close to 58 lbs. and is looking good. He is protective of his food and does not like the other dogs around him while he eats but is learning to tolerate the other dogs and they are learning to give him space while eating. Tin lives in a home with 5 other dogs ranging in size from 22 to 75 lbs. and gets along with all of them. He especially likes to play with the dogs that are his size but he will play nicely with the smaller beagles. He shares the toys without aggression and likes to play tug with another dog and a rope or cloth toy. Tin Tin likes balls on ropes and hard Nylabones and can occupy himself playing with these toys. He is not destructive in the house. At night he sleeps on a carpet in the kitchen with some of the other dogs and does not try to jump the gates. He is well behaved in the yard and is trained on the Invisible Fence system but does not really go near the boundaries or try to leave the yard. An ideal adopter would be a person or a family with older children that would respect the fact that Tin Tin will likely need time to adjust to a change in homes and allow Tin to blossom on his terms. He can become overwhelmed if pushed too quickly. It would be wonderful for him if his adopter would be willing to take him to obedience class to help him gain confidence and understanding. This is also great for bonding with his person. It might be nice for Tin Tin if his adopter had another dog since Tin will follow the actions of the resident dog to learn what is expected. He walks nicely on a leash and loves to go for walks. At times, Tin craves attention from his person and will accept a hug. He is still a work in progress and this is how far he has come since moving into a home environment. He will likely require time to process what is required and desired from him. Patience and understanding is desirable in his adopting family. This is an absolutely beautiful boy who really deserves a loving person or family. If you are willing to help him to learn what is expected of him, Tin Tin will be forever loving and appreciative of sharing your home. Don’t miss the chance to have this poor fellow as a part of your family. You will not be disappointed. Tin Tin would love to get out of the kennel and have a home that he can call his. If you would like to meet Tin Tin, please fill out an adoption application and be sure to mention his name - Tin Tin!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Cher is a 9 year old Pit Bull who came into the shelter along with her son, Sonny. Both of them are very sweet & people friendly, just really nice dogs. Cher is an affectionate girl who just loves attention - she loves to be petted & to cuddle with her people. She takes treats very gently and appears to let you know when she needs to go out. She knows the commands sit, paw, down and stay. She loves to play, but has destroyed every stuffed toy she owns. She still plays with them, minus the stuffing and squeakers. Cher rides like a lady in the car & enjoys just sitting in a car, even when it's not moving. She loves to go for walks & is good on a leash. Cher is good with older kids - little kids make her nervous - but she isn't fond of other dogs so she needs to be the only dog in the house. However, when passing a dog that is in its own yard, unleashed, Cher just ignores them. Cher is just a HONEY of a dog who needs some love and attention! She is very sweet, smart and loves "her" people! Cher has been spayed & fully vetted & is ready for her new home. If you'd like to meet Cher, please complete an adoption application & be sure to mention her name.

He can get pretty excited, but petting calms him down and after a minute he will roll over & you can pet his tummy. He is a pretty big puppy and a big baby, weighing 76 lbs! He loves to chew on durable toys and big bones. He is up to date on his shots and neutered. He is crate trained, housebroken, he likes other dogs & is good with people, but wouldn't be good with small children as he doesn't realize his size & could knock them down when he's excited. His foster mom describes him as 76 lbs. of love - goofy & a lapdog! If you would like to meet him, please fill out an adoption application & mention him by name - PRINCE!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Rockaway, NJ
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). AND THE GOLD MEDAL FOR TAIL WAGGING GOES TO…. EJ! EJ is such a good boy and so goofy, he makes everyone laugh and smile. He is housebroken, walks well on a harness and is so smart and treat oriented that he will be perfectly trained in no time. He knows sit and down. All he wants to do is be close to you and rest his head on your chest and star into your eyes with those big beautiful brown eyes of his. He has a lot of energy and loves to run around in the backyard, he lives with 2 cats and gets along well with them. He loves to play, but his biggest thing is he loves is to steal treats and run off with them. LOL EJ was found on the streets with a broken jaw that had fused back incorrectly, making it impossible for this little puppy to eat or drink. EJ was starving to death. His jaw was reset correctly and he was sent to 11th Hour to find his forever home. While in foster and as EJ grew his jaw bone fused together again. The poor little guy was again unable to open his mouth even for a treat. He had a second surgery OCT 3rd that removed more of his jaw bone so that it would not fuse up again. The surgeon was able to remove enough so the he has more motion then he had before, not full motion but enough that he can eat a treat or lick peanut butter from a spoon and even drink water like a normal dog as well as being able to pant to cool himself off. EJ is currently gaining weight and he loves to eat. He can actually bark now and will let you know when he hears anyone or anything around the house or coming in the door. He loves to play with socks and will run circles around you while you try to catch him. He loves to sleep with you and will stay by your side all night. He loves car rides - he will sit right in the passenger seat and put his head on the arm rest so you can pet him and he will look at you the whole time. I have never seen a dog look into your eyes as intensely as he does. EJ is very smart and is a good listener - of course he is with those ears!! He shows no sign of food aggression with his human friends. He is learning quickly and is very treat motivated which is fantastic. He is so eager to please and easily trained. WARNING—EJ has the biggest, sweetest brown eyes that will melt your heart. Humans need to be aware that they will fall in love quickly and deeply for this guy. Please fill out an application if you would like to have EJ join your family.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hello, my name is Sandra, or Sandy, as my foster mom calls me. I am a “pocket pit” mix - I'm so tiny that I can almost fit in your pocket! I am about 35 pounds and I'm crate trained and house trained, but I prefer to roam free as I am not destructive in my current home. I came to 11th Hour in September 2011 after being abandoned in New York, and they saved me! Only a few short months later I went into a foster home, which I have been in since February of 2012. I am a good girl, I love to exercise and play with my toys all day. And I enjoy walks and hikes, too. I get energetic at times, but I just want to play. I prefer a home with no pets, as I am a Princess. I love to snuggle with my foster mom and watch movies, I love to burrow under blankets and sleep in her bed. I get cautious with new people, but learn to trust. I know that I am looking for a very special kind of home where I can be happy & safe. If you think you can provide that home for me, please fill out an adoption application and meet me today!
