Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Wesley is a 2 year old Pit Bull Mix rescued from a kill shelter. He experiences some separation anxiety and would do well with a family where someone is home most of the time has lots of time to spend with him. He does great with other big dogs, but is not a fan of smaller animals. He was tested around a cat and could care less that the cat was there, but no small dogs or puppies. He is a very relaxed dog who enjoys going for car rides, loves walks, is getting used to the water at the beach and will put his feet in the small waves finally. He really is a loving dog who would do best as a single dog as he loves the attention for himself (has some possessive issues - won't let my dogs near me sometimes etc). He is kind of lazy - but he's finally doing dog things like going down on his elbows and wagging his tail letting you know he wants to play. He knows basic commands such as sit, paw, and stay. He's a love bug. Up to date on his shots, neutered and microchipped and on Heartworm preventative.

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: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Keyport, NJ
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Beautiful Bleu is looking for love in just the right place! With just the right people to cover with kisses and to cuddle. Brimming with affection, she lives to display it, and bristling with energy, she needs to expend it, leaping exuberantly into the air as she hits the backyard at a run. Frisky and feisty, this tomboy of a two-year-old loves playing with toys, is curious about everything happening around her, and is housetrained to use a doggy door. Found by Animal Control as a stray with a broken leg, she healed well from her surgery, and proves it by her agility and ability to effortlessly jump a four-foot fence. Obviously trained by her original owners to chase lasers, her fosters have been working to reverse her prey drive, but she remains very much an Alpha dog. For this reason, the right place for beautiful Bleu is a home with NO other animals, a backyard with a secure, 6-foot fence to keep her safely contained, and loving, but watchful adopters to keep her from other dogs and all to themselves. Bleu is under 30 pounds and would make a great companion for the right home. Bleu is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations. Her adoption also includes free in home training to her new family.

      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Keyport, NJ
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). This is a courtesy post for the owner of this dog. You will not be adopting from Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue.Please contact the owner directly through the contact info provided below. e.cook23@gmail.com My name is Emily and my son Sebastian and I have a third party service dog named Maddie. She is approximately 8 years old and she was a rescue from a high kill shelter. The organization that we got her from in Atlanta takes rescues and then trains them for service. We were placed with Maddie in late 2012. She looks to be part lab and part boxer. She really is the sweetest girl on earth, very loving and VERY attentive. She's perfectly content staying home or going out to a restaurant. She eats blue buffalo brand food and self regulates her water so she doesn't go in the house. On Dec 21st she suffered a stroke that left her with a perma head tilt. Her doc put her under the Vestibular disease bucket because all her labs came back 100% clear and healthy. She has recovered great just her head and her balance is off kilter. I am trying to find an organization that would adopt her from us (she has all her certifications and diplomas) for someone who is looking for a therapy dog or an emotional support dog. When we were placed with Maddie, the other option for her was for a Veteran to adopt her because she is such a friendly girl and loves to communicate which comes in handy during periods of PTSD. That being said, I had to retire her as my son's service dog because she just couldn't keep up with the work and my heart just hurt trying to make her. She's been spayed and is currently due for her Rabies shot, which I'm waiting to give her until March due to the stroke. This stroke was the first ever health issue she ever had. She's never been sick, she has been up to date on her flea medication, heart worm medication, and visits. She's lost some weight in the time recovering from the stroke so I'm trying to slowly get her back up there. I can of course have her with me until someone is found for her that is a great fit, but she's such a great dog I'm sure that won't take too long. Contact: e.cook23@gmail.com

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Keyport, NJ
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Pleased as punch with her slice of pumpkin pie, sweet but shy Ruby blooms in the company of other dogs. In fact, the fearful 4-year-old prefers canines to humans, having come from a rowdy home and never knowing how calmness feels. Slightly timid on walks, uneasy around too much activity, and healing well from a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in one leg, she would thrive in a house with a securely fenced yard. Eager to trust, to love and be loved, what Ruby needs now is a foster or adoptive home with another gentle dog for guidance and companionship, and people committed to patiently coaxing her from her shell and allowing this promising gem to truly shine. To encourage and compensate just such a home, CODAR will provide for the medical expenses related to Ruby's leg and for her obedience training.
