Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). We have a very special boy who needs a urgent foster home due to unforeseen circumstances. We rescued this beautiful boy Jacob when he was just about 6-7 months old after he was hit by a car and his front paw was degloved on a busy Brooklyn street. Jacob went through some months of staying at the vet and receiving critical medical care. Shortly after Jacob went into a wonderful foster home. He was quickly adopted by his foster family as they fell in love with him. He was a big goofy puppy, but he got along very well with all the resident dogs, 3 females and 1 male. The family went through some very difficult times, lost their home during Hurricane Sandy, and through it all they took Jacob back home as soon as they could. We received a frantic call that Jacob and their male Great Dane have started getting into bad fights over dominance. The situation has become urgent and the family is absolutely heartbroken, but for safety reasons we must remove Jacob and place him in a foster home to prevent anymore dangerous fights between the two males. Jacob is a absolute love-bug. He is about 3.5 years old now good with kids, he does wonderful with all the female dogs in the home, and has never had a problem before with other dogs. His family is absolutely heartbroken. Please help us by sharing Jacobs story and photos. He is a stunning boy, so friendly and loving. Go to www.nycsecondchancerescue.org to fill out an application.

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.

      Maggie Mae

      rescue
      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Whitestone, NY
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Maggie was abandoned on the side of the road in North Carolina with her toys and a bowl of water where she stayed for 2 days until someone rescued her. She is a little over a year old and is the perfect size at 45 lbs but feels even lighter when she curls up on your lap. She tends to be more of the quiet couch potato, but she LOVES to play. She hasn't quite gotten the gist of playing fetch and loves her toys. She will bring you a toy and when you try to take it from her to play catch you will end up playing tug of war, of course if you don't try to take it from her she will try putting it on your lap until you do. She is very food motivated, allowing her to learn her commands quickly with treats. She knows sit, stay, lay down, up, & come. She thinks shes a lap dog, loves to watch TV, give lots of kisses, and she loves to burrow behind you or under pillows or blankets. Maggie Mae is a follower and a snuggler. She wants nothing more than to be sleeping on or next to you and will follow you everywhere. Maggie Mae would love a large fenced in back yard to run free in. Her energy comes in spurts so a really intense game of catch tends to wear her out quickly. She wants to be your constant companion, your reason to have a smile on your face, your best friend, and she deserves to be someones world. For this reason, she would do best in a very active home with no other pets, no small children, and experience with rescue dogs. To adopt Maggie Mae please apply at http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). When you speak about Prince to his handler at boarding, Her reply... I just don't understand why Prince is not adopted yet. He is such a good boy... Honestly we don't know why either. Prince aka Privledge is still waiting for his "Happily Ever After". Prince is waiting for a home. He has been living in boarding in New Windsor NY. for some time now. Simply put, Prince is a great dog. Prince will charm you with his personality. He is obedient, smart, and kind. He is going to make an awesome pet. Prince deserves to live his life with a family who will welcome him, and love him. Prince will be a good fit with children who are a bit older and mindful. He will need a meet and greet if there is another dog in the home making sure they are compatible. Prince can not live with cats. Prince is 3 years old, neutered, crate and house trained. How about giving him a chance so he can live a normal life. All he needs is a chance to prove what a great boy he is. If you can foster or want to adopt Prince, please apply. http://www.nycsecondchancerescue.org/

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Whitestone, NY
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Roxie who is need of a forever home. Roxie is a stunning pit mix who is 2.5 yrs old. Roxie does not only carry good looks she is very smart. She knows Basic commands and is proud to act on them when told. She enjoys just about everything and will make a wonderful companion for someone who loves the outdoors such as hiking, jogging and walks. But there is more to this beautiful girl. She has a wonderful balance. Loves her people and is very loyal. Roxie loves to cuddle is super affectionate can be chill she is just a big mush! Roxie is a little shy when meeting welcoming friends but it does not take her long before she is by your side wanting to be your new best friend. She presently is living with two teens at her foster home and wants to be part of their circle enjoying their company and friends they invite to the home. Roxie would make an awesome only pet. If other dogs are in the home Roxie would be best with dogs who are submissive she would need a very slow introduction as she has become fearful of other dogs because of a little scuffle in the home. An understanding owner willing to take things slow and help her overcome some of that fear if other dogs are in the home would be best. Her foster is presently working on taking her for walks with their male dog hoping in time this fear will diminish entirely. Roxie was friendly and interested when meeting a litter of puppies. We believe this scuffle between dogs in the home has just set her back a little but we are hopeful things will move in the right direction with an owner who understands this situation. Roxie would need a cat free home. She is truly a wonderful loyal girl with so much to offer to a family who is willing to make her part of their home and life. She is house trained, crate trained up to date on all her shots/vetting and is spayed. She weighs about 75 pounds. If she has captured your heart and you would like to adopt her please fill out an application with us.
