Lanie

Lanie and Lila are medium sized doodle mixes. Our best guess is mini sheepadoodle, but we can't be sure. These sweet girls are 2 years old and have not had much socialization. They are very nervous, but will let you pet them or pick them up. We are looking for separate loving and patient foster (or foster to adopt) families for them. These little ladies need time to acclimate to a home and human interaction. A friendly and confident resident dog would likely help the transition. These girls have a 3rd sister (Libby) who has made tremendous strides in her foster home after only 3 weeks. With time and patience, we know these girls will learn to trust and will blossom into the loving pets they were meant to be. Please help us help them by considering fostering. We will provide food and medical care, and anything else you may need. You supply the love.❤️ If you'd like to help Lanie or Lila, please fill out a foster or adoption application on our website at Rescueridge.com. If your application is a possible match, a volunteer will get back to you.

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. .
