Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). 10 June 2014: 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.

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: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 400.00. 29 Dec 2016: Guess who is looking for a home! Adorable SQUIRT! Squirt is professionally trained. This adorable girl has come so far during the weeks she has been in training. She is an A student! She has worked hard on her training and has been very successful. She definitely likes to please. Squirt is ready to find her perfect fit. Squirt will need a committed person who understands that it is more then just taking Squirt home. Continued structure on what she has been taught will be the key to success for Squirt. Her trainer wants to make sure that the fit is a good one and would like to meet Squirts potential foster or adopter. A handling session in North Brunswick NJ with Squirts trainer would be needed. There will also be a private training session at Squirts new home so everyone is on the same page on what will keep Squirt that A student at home. Squirt is a year old. She is a little pittie who is simply adorable and will be a wonderful family addition. Although Squirt has been introduced at training to other dogs and does well with her trainer in attendance, her trainer feels she will best as an only dog at home. Children who are older and mindful will be her best fit. If you think you are the right fit for Squirt please fill out an application for her! http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/#j (see link of Squirt in training :) https://www.facebook.com/Dynamic.K9.NJ/videos/1100444430051132/ 12/29/16: Pretty Squirt has something to say! <3 What's a girl gotta do around here to get some attention and get a home? Ya think it was easy sticking my paws in this crazy outfit? Not to mention sitting still, while all I heard was .. Squirt sit, Squirt look at the camera, Squirt wanna treat look this way! (sigh) All I was thinking is take the picture already and hurry up this Santa outfit is pretty itchy! Well maybe you don't know what an awesome doggie I am and that's why I still don't have a family. My name is Squirt, yea go ahead with the jokes. I know Squirt means tiny or little in that Human dictionary. I'm petite, little.. yep and the best part about that is I don't take up much room. Oh and I'm really smart too. I mean I had it going on before I went to training, BUT now I'm a Rock Star! I love to listen and I love everything I learned with John my Trainer. He tells me all the time how proud he is of me. John explains it perfectly, he says I have come a long way. John says even though I am doing well with his helper dogs at training He would like to see me as the queen bee in a home. I would loved to be spoiled and be center of attention! I mean I have so much love to give a family no one is gonna miss having another dog anyways when you see how awesome I am. I enjoy people, and kids who respect doggies. A family.... boy that sounds so amazing. How about giving me a chance? I mean if you don't give me a chance I keep making John Rich while I wait for a family to love me. Come on humans fill out an application for me! http://www.nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 225.00. 12 March 2017: This baby boy, is just that he is a baby, he is playful at 3 years old. Constantly looking for your guidance to ensure he is doing everything just right. He is potty trained and likes to softly put his paws on your chest for a hug. He just loves to cuddle in your lap or sleep next to you on the couch. He loves to play ball in the yard and sit in the sun. He is fine with other dogs once slow intros are done. Ricky just needs time to adjust to his surroundings and feel safe once that happens he is an easy going fellow. Ricky just needs to take things slow. He is crate trained and when he is bored he will go in his crate and sleep. He needs a home that is not too busy and will give him some love. He is just a big love bug.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $225.00. 17Jan2017: Sweetheart would love to get out of boarding how, about giving her a chance. Sweetheart is a pretty amazing dog. They say she's a blue and white but sometimes she appears to have a beautiful pastel cream color coat. She is about 4.5 years old, spayed and UTD. She weighs about 70 lbs . She knows simple commands such as SIT, STAY and give PAW. She is crate trained as well. She would do best in a home with children over 13 yrs of age who are respectful. Although we dont know Sweethea rts past it looks like some of her teeth have been filed down or purposely pulled. She is not a fan of hard treats, understandable with some missing teeth its hard forger to take on a tuff chew treat. There is plenty that she does enjoy, like car rides, out door exercise, or simply enjoying affection from someone. Sweetheart can not live with cats. She would love to be your one and only pet. She is house and crate trained as well. If she captures your heart and you would like to have her become part of your family please fill out an application http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). 9 June 2016: He is a big mush, loves to cuddle. He was a euth list pull from Manhattan ACC, was found as a stray by the police (hence the name "Fuzz", lol) He was adopted out once, also in NJ, but was returned for aggression. We have not seen any severe aggression- and we have tried to see what would get a rise out of him. He plays and curls up with my two big boys (lab/ridgeback mix, shep/shar pei mix) and has no food aggression or an ... ything with them. He knows basic commands, is house trained and crate trained. He is not a big fan of the crate, but will go in on command. I don't think he would do well if crated all day. Very treat motivated, which is helpful bc he can be a little stubborn- there is no forcing this big boy to do something. He def needs a strong leader, who will be patient with slow intros etc. I feel like he is finally learning how to "dog", like doing things a normal dog would do- running around outside, playing with dog toys, just having fun. He does have some skin issues- scarring on his neck, possibly from embedded collar, and scarring on his muzzle, possibly from being taped/tied shut. He has some skin issues on his feet also, which the vet thinks is allergy related, and we check/clean his paws regularly

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). 29 July 2014: 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.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). 10 June 2014: Rocky, is seeking a foster or forever home. He is sweet and loving, and very loyal. He was pulled at the last minute from death row at the NYC Animal Shelter...now that his life has been saved, please won't you consider adding him to your family?? He is good around older children, and around my dog, another pitbull. He is not at all too fond of cats or small dogs. He can walk without his leash, and loves to play catch~~ he is awesome at catching the ball!! Rocky loves to take long walks, and to snuggle. He is a very sweet boy who needs just a few days to warm up to you. He is a relatively low maintenance dog. It does take Rocky a bit of time to warm up to newcomers, but once he does, he is in love! He can act aggressively around someone new, and it takes time to get to earn his trust, but once you do, he is all yours! If you are interested in fostering or adopting Rocky, please fill out an application here.. http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/
