Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Peaches is a sweet, mellow dog who LOVES people. She is housebroken, obedient, and low key - it's rare to hear her bark. She is eager to please and is just happy to be around you. She loves attention, but can just as easily curl up on her bed and take a nap for hours. While she can have a puppy-like demeanor with a playful energy, she is mature and smart enough to understand commands and "house rules". She isn't big into playing with her toys, but is a lean and athletic girl...she was even featured in an Agility Allstar showcase! A long walk is easy for her and we wouldn't be surprised if she could keep up with you on a run. A fun day for Peaches is riding in the car, going on park trails or hikes, or just snuggling up next to you to watch the game or a movie! She is currently in a foster home and is thriving. She's learned new commands and routines and is enjoying the comforts of a home. She loves to nap in her crate or on the couch (and she knows she's only allowed on the couch cushions that are covered with a blanket). She's mastered the stairs and is no longer hesitant of taking walks in the dark. She's a smart girl who's made amazing progress in such a short time. Her foster family says she's a pleasure to have in their home. Peaches has demonstrated levels of separation anxiety, but benefits greatly from consistent and positive direction. Her anxiety is easy to manage for a committed and responsible owner who knows (or is willing to learn) the basics of dog behaviors. Be confident in knowing that EHR will provide instructions and assistance during the process to whomever adopts her. An ideal home for her would be a retired person/couple or a person/couple who works close to home (or even from home). Peaches sometimes likes to jump up and give kisses, so she would do best in a home with older children. Though she has shown some signs of being dog selective (which means she reacts negatively to certain dogs) she has never really had the chance to bond with another dog. So, a home with another pup may not be out of the question completely...it just has to be the right fit. EHR volunteers and her foster family continue to work with her on this issue. MORE ABOUT PEACHES Breed - American Pit Bull Terrier Age - About 4-5 years old. Size - Medium; she's petite for her breed and weighs less than 50 lbs Color - A beautiful tawny-colored short coat (BONUS: not a big shedder!). Please make Peaches' dream of a forever home come true. Her new family will definitely be rewarded with the abundant amount of affection and loyalty that Peaches has. If you'd like to meet her, please remember to mention this precious girl's name on your adoption application. You won't be sorry!

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: Chihuahua / Mixed. Lucy (also known as Socks) is a lovable girl who loves attention and getting belly and back rubs. She's a playful little dog who likes to play with our beagle and catching a ball. Lucy has not been around cats but has been around dogs prior to being with us. She is cautious around other dogs except our beagle. Lucy barks at people approaching the house except us. She knows when strangers approach the house. She does bark at people she does not know. Like Precious she is learning the command "no barking". Once she gets to know the person she'll want attention and lies for belly rubs. She does not guard her food. Also, like Precious, Lucy loves sitting or laying by your feet. If you are interested in Lucy or Precious, please call Manny or Lourdes at 973 993-9271 Home or 973 727-9852 Cell.

      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
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Rockaway, NJ
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Cher is a 9 year old Pit Bull who came into the shelter along with her son, Sonny. Both of them are very sweet & people friendly, just really nice dogs. Cher is an affectionate girl who just loves attention - she loves to be petted & to cuddle with her people. She takes treats very gently and appears to let you know when she needs to go out. She knows the commands sit, paw, down and stay. She loves to play, but has destroyed every stuffed toy she owns. She still plays with them, minus the stuffing and squeakers. Cher rides like a lady in the car & enjoys just sitting in a car, even when it's not moving. She loves to go for walks & is good on a leash. Cher is good with older kids - little kids make her nervous - but she isn't fond of other dogs so she needs to be the only dog in the house. However, when passing a dog that is in its own yard, unleashed, Cher just ignores them. Cher is just a HONEY of a dog who needs some love and attention! She is very sweet, smart and loves "her" people! Cher has been spayed & fully vetted & is ready for her new home. If you'd like to meet Cher, please complete an adoption application & be sure to mention her name.

      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!

      Sex: Male Male

      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.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hello, my name is Sandra, or Sandy, as my foster mom calls me. I am a “pocket pit” mix - I'm so tiny that I can almost fit in your pocket! I am about 35 pounds and I'm crate trained and house trained, but I prefer to roam free as I am not destructive in my current home. I came to 11th Hour in September 2011 after being abandoned in New York, and they saved me! Only a few short months later I went into a foster home, which I have been in since February of 2012. I am a good girl, I love to exercise and play with my toys all day. And I enjoy walks and hikes, too. I get energetic at times, but I just want to play. I prefer a home with no pets, as I am a Princess. I love to snuggle with my foster mom and watch movies, I love to burrow under blankets and sleep in her bed. I get cautious with new people, but learn to trust. I know that I am looking for a very special kind of home where I can be happy & safe. If you think you can provide that home for me, please fill out an adoption application and meet me today!
