Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Update on Kris! Kris LOVES everyone, great with people and kids! He is working with our trainer and healing everyday! He loves to play and run around, and his beautiful personality is shining through. Despite his abuse and neglect, Kris is a superb example of what we do in rescue! He is almost ready for adoption, so please consider loving Kris forever and giving him the home he so deserves.

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-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). AJ's foster family call him Scooby! Why? Because with his beautiful coloring and looks, he reminds them of Scooby Doo! AJ (Scooby) is a 3 year old dashing gentleman with a goofy personality. AJ is up to date on shots. This is what AJ says: ". I love being outside and running and can run around in circles around the yard happy as a clam and then pass out right after for some rest on the couch. I get along well with my two foster fur sisters, a grumpy 10 year-old Chihuahua mix and an energetic 2 year old Shepherd mix. I am good with people as well, but can be a little unsure a first so it takes me a little time to warm up to you, but once I do, in the next 5 minutes or so and with treats, we are friends for life. I am a big boy and am sometimes unaware of my own strength so I might knock little kids over by accident. I am great in the house and completely potty- and chew-trained, meaning I only chew on my toys and nothing else in the house. I walk well on the leash and have been getting better and better working with my foster parents on not pulling on the leash when I see other dogs, by using the Gentle Leader. I learn quickly and have learned commands such as sit, lie down, catch and shake in no time! Pretty impressive, right? I am working hard on preparing all kinds of tricks and good behavior to impress my new forever family and I know once my new family meets me they will just fall in love with me. I cannot wait to start our new life and adventure together! ​http://www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org to apply for me, AJ (AKA Scooby)

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hope was rescued over a year ago from a well under a house in GA. The owner didn't even know the well existed. Hope spent 4 days dow ... n there before she was discovered. Since then she's gotten healthy & is ready for her forever home! Here's what foster mom says: Hope is great for first time dog owners. She is sweet gentle and loving with all people. Hope loves to walk and would do best with an active owner but is also happy to lay around all day and shadow you around the house. She is truly a gentle giant and would be the perfect family dog. She is loyal as can be and wants nothing more than to be your best friend! Hope loves adventures as you can see! Hope's foster mom adores her but just took a new job & wont be around as much which she knows isn't fair to Hope! Hope is great as a solo dog or would do best with small males. It does take her time to get used to new dogs, so would need slow intros. Hope loves kids, but is not a fan of cats. She's about 3 1/2 years old now! She's a beautiful lab/pit mix.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. SusiQ is currently located in the 03773 area code. She is up to date on shots and good with all people and other dogs. She is most certainly a hound-mix, she loves her walks and scenting her way thru the woods. She rarely barks, but when she hears the coyotes in the distance at night, will occasionally join in The Big Aroo. Susie Q is a country girl at heart, the city life is too overwhelming for her so a country home in a rural setting would be best. Susie is allergic to cigarette smoke so a non smoking home is a must. She is a humorous girl, a little bit in her own world, and happy to join in on any adventure or car trip you may be heading out for. SusiQ came into Rescue having great difficulty with Trust. But as she has grown to trust her foster mom, she is more bold approaching people in public, and trusting that they will treat her as her foster mom does. If you would like to adopt Susie Q, please put your application in here: http://www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Saved off the euth list at the NYC kill shelter... Adopt Choco! A volunteer writes: Choco is already a big boy at eight months of age…His square face topped by butterfly ears, his big puzzled and naive eyes….He is plain adorable…Choco is no pound puppy, though..He is a strong babe who pulls on the leash and engages in rambunctious and mouthy play with other dogs in playgroups. He likes to jump high and he is known to chew on household items when his family is away…The very reason his owners relinquished him to the care center. Choco comes otherwise with excellent recommendations. He lived and played gently with the children of the house and is said to be very playful and affectionate…Choco’s little boy face got me.. Really cute.. He comes when called, sits very nicely on command, does his business without marking and puts his head right in my lap for petting…Choco is a high energy puppy, very enthusiastic who needs basic training in puppy savvy hands and he will be an awesome adult, in looks and character. He has goodness in him, a great core..He just needs the polish…Let’s not waste his life because he only needs basic training…Choco is just eight month old and has a long life in front to of him but only if you give him a chance, the chance to be his new master and teacher.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). In search of forever.... Rescued from the NYC ACC, staff and volunteer fave Jimmy is a friendly, low-energy Pittie mix who is a big fan of sunbathing, belly rubs, and Kongs. He needs an owner who is experienced with large dogs and understands that he may not get along well with other male dogs, but he played well with most of the female dogs he has met in the care center and is friendly with people. Due to his mellow nature, Jimmy could easily be a family pet or go home with a person who has a busy schedule. If you have lots of love, a few minutes for a walk or romp each day, and a warm spot on the couch, Jimmy is your guy!

      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Lori (loriwiley725@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. This super sweet and friendly 10 year old black lab mix girl is Manchester. She is up to date on shots and spayed. Manchester gets along well with all people and other dogs. Cats are an unknown. Her shelter advocate states that she climbed right into her lap and curled up. Poor Manchester, dumped at a high kill shelter with a skin condition, by the only family she ever knew, just thrown away like she didnt matter. Our hearts broke when we saw the pictures of the is sad, neglected girl and we scooped her right up. She will be feeling better very soon, and we would love to have a FOREVER home waiting for her.
