Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mastiff / Mixed. ***FOSTER OR ADOPTER NEEDED ASAP*** Moses is a breath taking boy, just under a year old, and about 50 lbs. We rescued him out of deplorable conditions where he was left locked in a room without food or water for over a week. You see the house was a host to vast array of illegal activity. When the people were arrested, he was left behind chained in the room. When the landlord came to look at the property, he need to get him out. After a string of calls, he got our number and told us we had to get him immediately or he will end up in the shelter. We high tailed it over to him and got him. Moses greeted us with the HAPPIEST of spirits. If you could not see his deplorable physical condition, you would never have known he was starving and insurmountably thirsty for a week (during our summer heat wave nonetheless). He was just so grateful to be alive, outside, and with people who care. After witnessing where he came from, we appropriately named him Moses. Moses has a heart of gold. He is thin and needs to gain some weight. Sadly, his horrific life left him with more than just hunger, thirst, and an emaciated frame. Moses is covered in old scars. We do not know where this is from. However, it is clear that he was a victim of circumstance more than once. He is absolutely wonderful with people and children. He does get along with dogs; however, a meet and greet would be required. Moses also loves car rides, belly rubs, and snuggling. He really needs a home to decompress. Due to the urgency of the situation he is in boarding. Our hearts bleed for Moses; and, after seeing him, we know he will simultaneously break and capture your heart too.

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: Cairn Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Cairn Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Shawn is a 4 year old 15 lb carin terrier boy who came to us from the city shelter. This boy had a terrible life before rescue. Whatever the abuse he suffered before, led to blunt force trauma and scarred his eye. After that event, he is blind in that eye. However, he sees perfectly out of the other. This never dampened his spirit or held him back. Shawn has nothing but love and kisses to give anyone that meets him. His road was not an easy one. When he first met his foster mother, Shawn was fearful and timid. After some tender loving care, he came out of his shell and flourished. Once he felt the true meaning of love, he could not get enough and was eager to please. He quickly learns commands and potty trained at record speed! This boy is unstoppable! The only thing this little Irish boy asks is that he is the only pet in the home. Shawn is so happy to know the true meaning of human kindness and does not care to share it with other animals anymore. However, he is happy to share it with humans. There is plenty of Shawn to go around to people! He will lap surf all day and night! Kiss Shawn! He's one lucky boy!!! If interested in adopting or fostering Shawn, please email us at twentypawsrescue@gmail.com or info@twentypawsrescue.com. **Due to a gmail glitch, we lose some emails.

      Posted Breed: Bulldog / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Looking for a new best friend? Someone to chat about regarding anything and every thing? Then, meet Philip! Amazing Philip is an adorable, light hearted, 2 year old 50 lb bulldog pittie mix. He will eagerly listen to what you have to say, and chat right back to you with the most comical noises, followed by the sweetest kisses! Silly and happy to be alive, Phillip will take his leash in his mouth and prance along next to you. Philip wants to see everything that goes on. He will climb on his dog house and try with all his might to see over the fence. Nothing gets by this yenta boy! Philip is a benevolent, forgiving, resilient boy who just loves affection! Clearly, he making up for lost time. What this boy endured in his life will make you cringe. We don't know the full details, but he was seized from his owner and taken to the shelter as 'evidence'. His former subhumans were charged with SEVEN counts of animal cruelty! What could they have done to this poor angel. We know of one thing, starvation. Philip was an emaciated skeleton when we rescued him. Even with such deprivation, Philip is so good around food, showing no possessive or aggressive behaviors. It's a miracle, really. In fact, throughout it all, Philip has shown nothing but tenderness and fondness to all those he's met. Philip is dog and cat friendly. In all honesty, it is hard to get a picture that does this boy justice. Anytime we try to photograph him, he is wiggling and too busy trying to kiss and lean into you.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). Meet big and beautiful hippo Tara. She is an 8 year old 115 lb mastiff that has more love that her voluptuous body can handle! Literally, when she wiggles with joy, the wiggle goes on, and on, and on. When we rescued her from the kill list at the shelter, this girl was underweight and lost. Tara literally would sit and cry when anyone would leave her, even if she knew them for a quick moment. She literally sounded like a baby who lost everything she ever knew. With time and love in her foster home, Tara learned to trust people again. She blossomed! Tara ADORES other dogs, big and small, which is great because most dogs are smaller than her. While she is a senior, age is just a number. Not only is she completely healthy, but she is determined to make every moment of her new life count. Tara loves to play with her toys, other dogs, and humans. Those jowls and face have an endless supply of kisses to match. We are unsure of her life before the shelter, but we could tell she was often, if not always, alone, kept outside, and over bred. She also has a burn scar down her chest. Truly, her former life was one of horror and devastation.You can see her maternal spirit blossom when she is with kids and other dogs. Her patience, gentle nature, and love is unparalleled. She understands other dogs do not appreciate her size or exuberance, and respects it. With little and/or young ones, she is patient and nurturing. Tara would be a perfect addition into any home- she would love to have human and/or canine siblings to love and play with. She is housebroken, trustworthy, great in the car, and eager to please! If interested in fostering or adopting or fostering Tara, please email us at twentypawsrescue@gmail.com or info@twentypawsrescue.com. **Due to a gmail glitch, we lose some emails.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). http://youtu.be/1JP2qISqLQ4 http://youtu.be/ZUInogteoS0 http://youtu.be/DeL3NO9K2hI Brooklyn is a big boned 65lbs 6 year old American Staffordshire terrier mastiff mix who is well mannered, laid back, amazing boy. His outgoing loving personality will increase your heart size at least 3 fold. Brooklyn is a master at giving you the "puppy eyes" and redefines the art with his uniquely crackled spider web amber eyes! He also likes to stay classy and crosses his paws when he lays down. Brooklyn has previously lived with animals but prefers to be the only animal in the home. However, a home with other animals is an option for him. The police found Brooklyn running in the streets in Canarsie, took him in, and called Twenty Paws. When they found him I had a large prong collar digging into his skin and has left a bald spot in its place. Brooklyn’s allergies were neglected and required treatment for a skin infection, which was caused another bald spot on his back. Brooklyn is now completely healthy and ready to be the king of the castle. He is a complete love bug and walks well with a gentle leader leash. Although he LOVES people and kids, an adult home or one with older children would be best for him- due to his large size and goofy/clumsy behavior. A great listener, Brooklyn knows his basic commands and eager to learn more. Brooklyn currently lives with a military family and the moving around is very stressful for him and he is looking for a more stable environment. Brooklyn will be at your feet all day trying to please you. Brooklyn is crate trained and will sleep quietly in his crate all night but would prefer to keep your toes warm in the bed. He is completely house trained as well. Brooklyn is ready to go home to a dog bed (or your bed) and safe place to roam. With a lot of love to give, Brooklyn eagerly awaits to be all your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~FOSTER OR ADOPTER NEEDED~ 6-7 years old, 55 lbs, kid friendly, housebroken! After 4 years of a happy adopted life, Stella's human moved into a home that does not allow dogs leading to return to our care. This is one of the saddest situations a rescue faces. Please, allow us to reintroduce Stella. She is our big eared quirky sweetheart, with expressive eyes that tell a million page story. Stella is 55 pounds, 6-7 years old, spayed female, mixed staffie. House and crate trained, fully vetted, and eager to please, Stella is ready for her new start on life. She loves to run, play, snuggle, and jump in the car with you. All smiles all the time, Stella is the Twenty Paws version of an iMac. She is ready to fit into your family with no instruction manual necessary. After her original human dumped her with a neighbor, who then passed her on to another neighbor; who then set her loose. Stella was discovered running from Brooklyn to Queens. She realized that these humans had more regard for their trash than her. After investigating, we found the original owner who told us, “I don’t want her anymore”. Our team worked non-stop for years to make sure Stella only knew love and safety from that day on. During her time with us, Stella was always a volunteer favorite. She is among the most affectionate, spunky, and kindest dogs we have had. She has so much love to give to humans and children. Although she likes dogs, Stella would rather live alone as your best friend. She is firm on her stance with cats, the 2 just can't find a common ground. If interested in fostering or adopting Stella, please email us at twentypawsrescue@gmail.com or info@twentypawsrescue.com. ***Due to a gmail glitch, we lose some emails.
