Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. COURTESY POST: Sweet Veda is a wonderful girl, everything that most people would look for in a dog. She is an American Pit mix who loves to play fetch, loves to snuggle, is friendly and great on walks. She was rescued by some nice folks in Connecticut who are looking for the family that will love her forever. They will be rewarded with a great dog in return. Veda is fantastic with kids and adults alike. The only hiccup is that she's not great with small dogs or cats, so she's just better off in a single-dog home.. She's 4 years old, spayed, up to date on her shots, and healthy. This is a COURTESY POST (i.e., this is not a Badass dog), so please contact Veda's private rescuers directly at adoptveda@gmail.com if you are interested!

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: Husky / Mixed. Available Maggie Gyllenhaal snugglin' up in her foster mama's arms, dreaming of her forever home! Maggie was a star at our adoption event Saturday and showed all of us just how far she's come since being rescued. She spent 8 years locked in a basement, and the outside world was initially quite a shock to her. But today, she's a happy healthy husky girl loving life in NYC! Whether it's long walks i n Riverside Park, romping with her friends at dog camp, or relaxing at home, Maggie shows us all just how resilient dogs can be. We can't wait to find this girl the loving family she deserves. Maggie is looking for an adopter that will be patient with her and understand that it'll still take some time and love for her to warm up and get comfortable. But trust us, it's well worth it to see her opening up and loving life. To foster or adopt, please visitbit.ly/BadassApp.

      Posted Breed: Basenji / Mixed. LESLIE JONES IN THE HOUSE Y'ALL! When we first found out about Leslie, she was reported to be "not friendly" and distant. But, upon meeting her, we quickly found out that she was just the opposite! She was wagging her tail, prancing around, and very happy to see everyone. The stress of the shelter environment certainly was not a good place for an older, distinguished lady such as herself. Now that she is in a loving environment, like her namesake, Leslie is totally comfortable in her own skin and living life out loud and proud! Leslie knows how to sit and also does a hilarious head tilt when she's curious about something. This incredibly funny and totally fierce lady is available for adoption and looking for a loving, forever home. To foster or adopt, please visit bit.ly/BadassApp .

      Location: Brooklyn, NY
      Posted Breed: Siberian Husky / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. COURTESY POST: Boss is a 10 year old Siberian Husky/German Shepherd mix but you would never guess that he is a senior with his playful disposition and supersoft coat. Boss is a snuggle bug and especially enjoys getting his belly and ears scratched and napping in bed with his humans. Other hobbies include playing fetch, chasing squirrels, and relaxing with a nice rawhide chew. He attended basic obedience training and knows sit, down, wait, and drop it. He has been a city dog his whole life but loves any chance to play in the country. Boss has been in a loving home since he was a puppy but is in need of a new home because his family added young children to the pack, and Boss has displayed some aggressive behavior. He is a marshmallow with adults and despite his challenges with children in the home, he simply ignores them when passing them on walks. Boss has always had human companionship throughout the day, as his current family works from home. He would do best with an experienced dog owner who will be home the majority of the time. Boss is a fun-loving boy and will be a devoted companion and protector for the right human family. This is a COURTESY POST (i.e., this is not a Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue dog). If you can provide a safe and structured home for Boss and are interested in adopting, please email adoptboss@gmail.com for more information and to set up a meeting.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Beans has been in a foster home for almost 365 days. Is 2017 the year she finds her forever home? We still haven't given up on her. The good news is that during this time, Beans has learned so much from the time she was found as a stray right before a huge snowstorm on the streets of Newark. She now has great leash manners, is completely crate trained and housebroken, but she still can't control her love (she has so much of it to give-sorry!) Her ideal forever home is with so meone that is active but also appreciates the mid afternoon nap, someone that that is used to a 45 pound pup that thinks she is a lap dog, and someone that doesn't have other animals. While Beans has come a long way, she can still be unpredictable with other animals so we think it is best if she is your one and only. We promise Beans can offer you the love of 10 dogs! Beans is about 3-4 years old, 45 pounds, spayed, UTD on vaccinations and in perfect health. Her foster home is in Brooklyn. If you would like to set up a meeting or have any questions please email erica@mooshoes.com. This is a COURTESY POST (i.e., this is not a Badass dog), so please contact Erica directly.

He's a big boy at around 80 pounds, but that only means that he has move love to give to a family. Lucky loves the water, going for car rides, and he'll sit for treats and does well on leash. He's an energetic dude who's always been nice with o ther dogs and people but who'd do best in a home without small children or pets due to his size and enthusiasm. He's been waiting patiently for the right home for a while and is feeling lucky now! This is a courtesy post, meaning that Lucky is not currently a Badass, but he'll gladly come North for the right home. If you are interested, please contact thyratony@bellsouth.net or 912-585-2000.
