Wally-

Wally is a 3-year-old, 23-lb Chihuahua (+ 18 breed) mix who loves to give kisses and cuddles and be close to his family. He is a loving, friendly, and loyal dog. He loves to play, eat treats, and go outside. He's quite smart too. Wally knows how to sit and stick out his paw, and even knows commands like "leave it" and "done." Wally loves to play, and he wants to play all the time! He picks up his squeaker toys and approaches you when he's ready for playtime. He's well-trained when it comes to going to the bathroom. He lets you know when it's time to go with either a little yawn or he looks at his leash. When it comes to sleep, he prefers to sleep in his crate. The routine Wally follows is as follows: he waits until you walk over to the crate so that he can go in and tuck him in with a treat. Sometimes he does get anxious about things. If he sees a bag, box, or hears a dishwasher running, he will walk the other way. The same goes for rainy days. He will refuse to go outside because it's too scary. Wally is looking for a loving home with someone a little older preferably without little kids. He has a lot of energy and love. When it comes to diet, he enjoys human food, so if there are eggs and cheese, you will hear his tip toes approaching you very quickly. Wally is a very good boy who we hope can find a loving home! Wally is doing well in his foster home at Rescue Ridge and would love a forever home. Please apply to adopt him at rescueridge.com and if your application is a possible match a volunteer will get back to you shortly. No inquiries, please, without an adoption application.

Spirit

Please share widely for Spirit!
Spirit is a beautiful, unique-looking, approximately 2-3 year old Shepherd mix. Spirit was adopted a few months ago, but unfortunately, the family needs to rehome home. As much as they love him, they are not able to meet his needs and would like a find him a family that can give him the time and attention he craves. Spirit is an incredible dog, full of personality. He's been professionally trained, is extremely smart, and very friendly. He is best in a home with older children. He loves walks, car rides, going on adventures, playing fetch and even playing with other dogs that match his energy level. He is in a home with other dogs and does well with them. He is also housebroken and crate-trained. However, Spirit seems to have some separation anxiety and needs a home where someone can keep him company pretty much all of the time. Additionally, Spirit recently started having seizures and will require medication for the rest of his life (the seizures have stopped now that he's on the medication). While all of this may seem like a lot to deal with, we assure you when his needs are met, Spirit is amazing! He will be a loyal and loving companion and will thank you every day for your commitment to him. Spirit is looking for a dog-savvy, experienced owner who will understand his needs and can give him plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. The ideal home for Spirit would have someone who is home most of the time (or could take him to work with them) with a large fenced yard. Spirit is neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines. Please apply to adopt Spirit at rescueridge.com

He is a 2-year-old Mastiff mix rescued from a neglectful situation. When Luke came to us he was emaciated and weak. He had a skin infection and pressure sores all over his body. We immediately took him to our vet to address any medical concerns and put him on a feeding regime for weight gain. Despite his background and obvious discomfort, Luke has always been super sweet and affectionate! He is very friendly and will lean into you or gently rest his head in your lap to let you know he would like to be pet. Luke's incredible temperament makes him trustworthy around anyone. Now that he has reached a healthy weight (about 100 lbs), his skin is cleared up and his sores are healing, Luke is feeling much better. He now has the strength to play and we are seeing his silly personality shine. Luke walks beautifully on a leash, is extremely well-behaved in the car, and is just an all-around good boy! Luke has put the past behind him and It's time for him to find a family that will give him the love, attention, and care he has always deserved. Although Luke doesn't mind other dogs, we would like him to be the only dog in the home.If you'd like to meet this gentle giant, please fill out an application at rescueridge.com.

Pickles--Courtesy Post

Pickles is a courtesy post. Please fill out an application at rescueridge.com
and your information will be sent to his family who needs to rehome him. Monmouh County, NJ.
Here is the information from his family: "Loves people of all ages and wants to be with you and play. He loves other dogs but not sure on cats so I say no cats. He is about 1 year old now. According to the vet, he's a Mix. He's Husky/Stafford Pit and perhaps Shepherd. Short hair dog. He would be great with other dogs so he can play. Needs room to run around. Knows "Sit" and "Paw" The only reason my sister needs to find him a home is because he jumps. My sister is on a cane and not sturdy. She has fallen and can no longer take chances that she will get hurt badly. He may need some training in that area. He does know some commands. He has been in a kennel but not in crate. He has gone to someone's house who house sits about 6 dogs or so at a time. He loved it and the woman had no issues with him. He played all the time with the other dogs and even her two great Danes. I would say he's high-energy type. He has a fear of cars, getting into a car, because he was dumped a few times by previous owner who did not take the time to be with him and dumped him on his ex who then did not want him either."
Please apply to help this dog-friendly, sweet young pup find the right family to love him. Please text 732 546 8805 to let us know you applied and we will alert his owner. .
