Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hello there, my name is Petey :) Clearly you can see that I am just a handsome boy! I was taken into Eleventh Hour when my recent owners could no longer care for me. Since coming to EHR I have met many wonderful people. My foster who takes me home says I am housebroken, know all my basic commands (and a few bonus extras) UPDATE FROM CURRENT HOME: In the time we have had him Petey has improved his understanding of basic commands (sit, stay, down) as well as learned some new ones. We have been working on "Leave it" and "Drop it" and he has been responding well. We also are able to get him to wait for his food until we give the "OK" and are able to stop him eating with "leave it." We have not noticed any type of food aggression with him, he takes treats very nicely and won't take a treat until we say "OK". Petey is very good in the crate. When we first got him we tried to leave him in the house all day and he had an accident on the carpet EVERY day. We tried baby gates and barriers and he always jumped them. We figured it was a separation anxiety reaction from him. Since we started using the crate he has not had one accident and comes and goes from it on his own when the door is open. It definitely keeps him calm when we are out of the house. We do have him sleep in it at night as well, but he of course would love to just be in bed with us all night if he could. He is such a snuggler, still very affectionate and just wanting to be by us all the time. We definitely feel like he needs to be an only dog in a family with no children and who wouldn't have him interact with small animals or children. He definitely needs a lot of attention and love. We think he would love to run around and play in a high fenced yard. He also now responds to the name Dexter.

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.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Rockaway, NJ
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Wendy is a wonderful 9 year old pit bull who can no longer stay in my home. She is very petite and maybe only 60 pounds. She is off leash trained and loves children. She has a very affectionate personality and would love just laying around with you all day. She also loves to play fetch! Wendy does have some separation issues, but being crated while you are out usually works. She is already housebroken so no need to worry about that. She does like some dogs that she meets, but not every one. But she is a wonderful girl who really loves people - she would make a great family pet. If you'd like to meet Wendy or learn more about her, please call 862-432-7317 & speak with Samantha.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Rockaway, NJ
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). NOTE: Roxie is currently located in Texas. Roxie is a sweet 3 year old female Lab/Pit who LOVES affection. She is very active and would do great with a family that is, too. She loves playing with toys and bones. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. Roxie is crate trained and house trained. Roxie also walks beautifully on a leash!!! She can be the biggest couch potato when it is time to chill out and can also hang with the best of them when it comes to running and play time! She is also good with kiddos, but frequently has the 'zoomies' so we think maybe children that are a bit older (and not toddling around :) ). We feel it is best for her at this point to be in a home where she can be the center of your attention (meaning no other dogs). She came to us a bit protective of her food and toys, and has been attacked previously and unfortunately it has left a lasting impression on her. :( She is not dog aggressive but prefers to not share her toys or people so she would require a lot of supervision in a home with other dogs. We want to set her up for success !!

If you are interested in her, please email forgottensoulsbullyrescue@outlook.com as she is with Forgotten Souls Bully Rescue in Texas.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Rockaway, NJ
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Louis is a sweet little gentleman who's looking for a forever home to call his own. Lou isn't looking for much, but he would love a home that has plenty of short walks and cheese, a soft bed, and a patient human to keep him company. He thinks everything else is optional! Lou came all the way here from Taiwan, where a rescue group found him dodging cars on a busy road. Louis is a very sweet and easy dog who's looking for a couch to lay on where he can hopefully eat your leftovers and clean your plate when you're done! When Louis was found, his left rear paw had an infection and required amputation. But don't let that fool you, this smart little guy knows how to get around just fine and although he loves his daily walks, he's a lower energy guy. Lou is excellent with other dogs and ignores cats, so he should fit in to most homes, although, small children would probably scare him since he's shy. He's a wonderful houseguest because he's housetrained & crate trained, too. If you're interested in learning more about him, please fill out an application today and be sure to mention his name - LOUIS!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-German Shepherd Dog Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Rockaway, NJ
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (short coat). Prince is a very loving & playful Blue Nose Pit/German Shepherd mix. 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!

      Location: Rockaway, NJ
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Duke is about 2-3 years old, and is a boxer mix!!!! We think Duke was possibly used as a bait dog, as he has scars on his body. Now on to the better part....Duke is quite possibly the coolest dog that has ever come to this house. He has the funniest personality, and keeps everyone laughing. He sits like a human on the sofa, will paw at you to be pet, and he smiles....and did I mention he has the absolute cutest underbite EVER!! Duke has a funny little run too, and loves to fetch sticks and balls for us. He walks well on the leash. He can scale a 4 foot fence, so it would have to be someone with a secured area. He is an absolute delight, and now I know why everyone was frantic to save him. He is VERY deserving of it!! Duke loves to cuddle with people, and was great with everyone that came to my house. He loves car rides. It was something we could do to relax him. He definitely needs a very strong leader. Updated bio: Duke does not like to be crated & we had to go to pretty extreme measures to keep him locked up. The prior foster in Texas would be happy to talk to anyone willing to give him a try. She really loved him and repeatedly said how loving and affectionate he is, but he does have issues. He is high energy, has some separation anxiety/crate issues so he would do best in a home where someone was around most of the time. He needs a strong leader, sufficient activity, structure and discipline. Duke is good with most dogs, but can be male selective. He was good with my male dog for about 7 months, and then he decided that they were no longer friends. Duke is not with Eleventh Hour Rescue, but is with a rescue group in Texas. His adoption fee is $375 which includes all vetting and transport to the Northeast. Please note that our rescues are saved from high kill shelters in TX. If you're interested in Duke, please email lisarae.garrison@gmail.com for more information.
