Posted Breed: Siberian Husky / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. COURTESY POST: Boss is a 7 year old Siberian Husky/German Shepherd mix but you would never guess he was a day over 2 with his rambunctious disposition and supersoft coat. Boss is a snuggle bug and especially enjoys getting his belly and ears scratched and napping in bed with his humans. Other hobbies include playing fetch, chasing squirrels, and relaxing with a nice rawhide chew. He attended basic obedience training and knows sit, down, wait, and drop it. He has been a city dog his whole life but loves any chance to play in the country. Boss has been in a loving home since he was a puppy but is in need of a new home because his family added a baby to the pack, and Boss has displayed some aggressive behavior. He is a marshmallow with adults and despite his problems with children in the home, he simply ignores them when passing them on walks. Boss needs a home without any young children and needs someone who has experience with large strong-willed breeds, preferably Huskies. He also needs someone who has the strength and energy to meet his need for 45-60 min/day of structured walks (and/or the finances to send him to doggy daycare). He's attended doggy daycare and boarding, and is well socialized in that environment, though he occasionally growls when encountering other dogs while leashed or in dog parks. He could be in a home with another dog if the chemistry is good, particularly if the other dog is submissive. He is not off-leash trained so would do best in a fenced environment in case of a home with outside space. Boss is a hilarious happy boy and will be a loving companion and devoted protector for the right human family. This is a COURTESY POST (i.e., this is not a Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue dog). If you can provide a safe and structured home for Boss and are interested in adopting, please email adoptboss@gmail.com for more information and to set up a meeting.

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.

      Location: Brooklyn, NY
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Beans traded in life on the streets of Jersey for Brooklyn living. Rescued the day before a big snowstorm, it is believed that Beans was used for breeding purposes and let go after she was no longer of use. This didn't effect her outlook on people as she is a lover of all humans. She is an energetic girl and enjoys being active, skip the gym, this girl will whip you into shape. She excels at cuddling and is a super quick learner. She is selective around other animals and while she is fine with most on the street, she would do best as your one and only.She is about 2 years old and about 50 pounds. Beans is spayed and UTD on vaccinations. This is a COURTESY POST (i.e., this is not a Badass dog), so please contact Erica directly at erica.kubersky@gmail.com if you are interested!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Minnie Driver is ultimate Badass: she's a pittie, she's black (often overlooked in shelters), AND she's a mama with hanging breasts (hey, it happens to the best of us at some point!) She's also a Survivor. She was found with her collar so badly embedded in her neck that a vet had to open her up, remove it, and sew her entire neck back together. Like a lot of the abused pitties we find, she's a trusting sweetheart who wouldn't hurt a fly. To foster or adopt Minnie, please visit badassbk.com.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. COURTESY POST: Sweet Veda is a wonderful girl, everything that most people would look for in a dog. She is an American Pit mix who loves to play fetch, loves to snuggle, is friendly and great on walks. She was rescued by some nice folks in Connecticut who are looking for the family that will love her forever. They will be rewarded with a great dog in return. Veda is fantastic with kids and adults alike. The only hiccup is that she's not great with small dogs or cats, so she's just better off in a single-dog home.. She's 4 years old, spayed, up to date on her shots, and healthy. This is a COURTESY POST (i.e., this is not a Badass dog), so please contact Veda's private rescuers directly at adoptveda@gmail.com if you are interested!
