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.

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: Bulldog-Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Bugsy is a laid back cuddly bulldog saffie mix boy who is ready to show his personality off to the world! Anywhere he goes, Bugsy shines! About 2-3 years old and 53 lbs, this boy has the most endearing smile and expressive eyes. Armed with those 2 things, he can easily communicate with you. His big chocolate eyes penetrate even the toughest exteriors. We don't know anything about his former life, but can surmise that it was not a good one. Bugsy is very eager to please and quickly learns new commands- when you call his name he will trot/gallop/hippo walk his way right over to you! Bugsy would do best in any home that can enjoy how sweet he is...and give him tons of belly rubs! Bugsy likes to meet new people and adores kids. He does not show much interest in other dogs, which would make him a great companion for a laid back pup or a senior. Unfortunately, he has not been around cats. Bugsy, does well with city, suburban, and country life. This boy is easy going and smoothly transitions into almost any situation. Believe it or not, he even enjoys trips to the vet and their exams. He will bask in any attention he can get and they happily reward his good behavior with a belly rub, which he smiles through the entire time! Truly, this young boy will be the perfect addition to your home! If interested in fostering or adopting or fostering Bugsy, please email us at twentypawsrescue@gmail.com or info@twentypawsrescue.com. **Due to a gmail glitch, we lose some emails.

      Breed: Mastiff-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). True to her name, Caramel is a friendly and outgoing mush ball-o-sweetness! After a lifetime of love and loyalty, this lusciously large 85lb blue 7 year old girl was dumped at a kill shelter, alone, afraid, and devastated. She lived with and spent time around children (from toddlers to age 12). With both adults and children and other dogs, Caramel is relaxed and playful. She has experience with the entire gamete of dog sizes. she does well with large dogs, like herself, or little ones like poodles, pomeranians, and chihuahuas. Not sold yet? Caramel is also CAT friendly! She used to live with a cat, who she enjoyed snuggling with! When she can, Caramel loves to lay like a frog and wag her tail. As soon as you call her name, she will sit up and waddle over for an ole fashioned belly rub or head pet. When you its picture time, she cannot wait to sit and pose. She is an expert on selfies! For Caramel, life is game, a party, something to enjoy! In her foster home, she just loves to breathe in the fresh air, play with her foster siblings, and thrives on being called a 'good girl'. She also loves bath time and a nice brushing. Truly, Caramel just enjoys any time, love, and affection you can spare for her. She does not ask for much! Caramel does understands she is big and beautiful and will not conform to society's standards. She loves to be a cuddle bug and considers wiggling and wagging her tail sufficient cardio. When a walk is too long, she will take a frog legged break and smile at you. Moving at the pace of a high speed snail and not much of a puller, a toddler could walk her. She is the perfect dog for someone just looking for a companion, or even their first dog - low energy, low maintenance, and gets along with everyone. Friendly, affectionate, playful, and mellow, Caramel has a medium activity level. When she's ready to play, she enjoys fetch with balls and tug on rope. House-trained, sweet, and really the best girl you can meet, Caramel is one of a kind. She enjoys going potty outside wherever she can pick up a scent. She's well-behaved when left home alone and is trust worthy to not be crated! She knows sit, stay, and down by hand signal- among other commands. For exercise, Caramel enjoys slow walks on leash and does not pull. At the shelter, Caramel was widely loved and extremely popular. When we found out she was due to be euthanized, we could not let this girl's life end so tragically. She is now in a foster home and happily awaiting her next step in life.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Butterscotch is one easy going lovable pup! His name does not begin to testify to how sweet he is. About 60 lbs and composted mostly of sugar, this 2 year old golden bully mix is a gem! He has a more laid back personality and can be a big push over with other dogs, cats, and people. Literally, Butterscotch cannot fathom being anything but kind and loving to anyone. Patient, gentle, and affectionate, this boy is almost too perfect for words. Even better, this is a smart candy! Butterscotch will take himself for walks! With manners like his (he might have gone to finishing school with this level of gentlemanly behavior), we don't blame him for not being a big fan of the crate. Definitely, this boy earned his freedom! When in the crate, Butterscotch will just lay in it,sigh, and give you the biggest puppy dog eyes you have ever seen! Butterscotch knows basic commands and loves to sit for you. Honestly, this pup will do just about anything for a good ole fashioned butt scratch? Belly rubs? Yes, please! We cant believe this boy found himself on a kill list at a shelter just because of his magnificent melon head! This is a one of a kind pup and any family will be over the moon with joy to have him!

      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.

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.
