Sweet, beautiful, ~10 years old, Staffordshire Terrier Darla is waiting for her forever home in central N. J. at Rescue Ridge. She is a most delightful, easy going gal and just wants a lap to curl up on or a nice bed to have sweet dreams on. Darla was saved by Rescue Ridge from a local, N. J. shelter and she has adjusted well to her foster home. Her foster mommy calls her Darla but you can call her anything that you would like. Just be sure to call her "home forever.") Darla was a stray and clearly was tossed out when she could not have any more puppies. She is gentle- dog and cat- friendly and actually likes to curl up with the foster family’s cat!

She loves to go for walks and for a senior gal has a nice little pep in her step. She is best in a home with gentle older children due to her age and her hearing impairment. Darla is very easy to walk on a leash and is truly a beautiful girl inside and out. Darla is a medium sized sweetheart with a heart of gold. Oh, Darla also likes to play a little tug on a toy for a moment for two LOL. She is great in the car and enjoys going out for a spin on the town.

MISSY MOUNTAIN CUR/ PLOTT HOUND OR PIT BULL MIX GENTLE. DOG -FRIENDLY. Beautiful, sweet, gentle, dog-friendly, 2 yrs. Old, Missy must have had a very hard life before being rescued from North Carolina. She came into the shelter as a stray, emaciated, very scared, sad, and insecure.

She gives the sweetest, gentle kisses, looks up at you with adoring eyes, and wants nothing more than a quiet, easy going home, preferably one with adults or one with gentle children. Missy enjoys walks, takes treats and food gently, and is curious about toys but probably never had a chance to play with one. She has played with other dogs in the play yard and is very good with them. Won’t you please open your heart and home to this shy, sweet girl? If you do, please be patient with her.

Oct., 2017: Poor Dougie. He is losing his home because his owner has no time for him.

He's ~almost 2 yrs old and is a very handsome Hound Mix. He's full of energy and a little bit of mischief wink emoticon. He is super smart and already knows a few commands (sit, paw, other paw , down) and is thrilled to work(train) for treats. He also loves to run around after balls and toys. He is particularly fond of squeaky toys and will run around, throwing it up in the air in delight. He's quite the silly boy. After earning your trust, he is very affectionate, wanting to wrap his big paws around you for a hug and attention. He is good on leash with a harness or gentle leader but could use some refinement to make walk time enjoyable for everyone. No young children. He is dog-friendly and loves spending time romping around our play yard with his Rescue Ridge canine friends.

GEORGIE PEOPLE/ DOG FRIENDLY/ HOUSEBROKEN/ KNOWS COMMANDS Georgie is a fantastic pup! We think he is a Shepherd/ Hound mix. Georgie is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Georgie is a spry, energetic 9 years-young boy who has a lot of love left to share. He was found by EMTs on the side of the road with a bad head injury. He was taken to a New Jersey shelter that got him patched up, and he is now ready for his new home! Georgie is super smart, knows sit, lay down, paw and beg, and has never met a ball he doesn’t love. Any size, any kind, he will carry it around all day and sleep with it at night. He is the ultimate fetching dog, and will happily play for as long as you are willing to throw the ball. Georgie also has a very affectionate streak and will lean in for scratches and pats. He is very good with other dogs and does not react to aggressive or dominant behavior from his foster sister. He’s happy to just walk away with his ball in the face of hostility. Georgie thinks life is too short for that kind of nonsense. Georgie is not food or toy aggressive and takes treats very gently. He is also housetrained and knows how to use the dog door. Do you have room in your home for this amazing older gentleman? Please apply to adopt Georgie in central N. J. at RescueRidge.com and text 732 546 8805 for a meet and greet.
Meet Lenny, he is about 11 years old. We rescued Lenny from a high kill shelter down south. He immediately became part of our family. Lenny had grown up with our 2 boys 12-14 years old.. he is very loyal, loving and quite protective of his family. He loves to sit near you and be pet. He can still give chase to a squirrel or critter, but will tire easily. Lenny has had trouble getting up steps lately in his older age. Lenny spends his day resting and lounging with whoever is available. We had to move and no pets are allowed. This has been a very hard decision since Lenny is basically the best dog ever. He has lived w our other dog Lulu for most of his life as well. They have since been separated but doing ok on their own. We only found one home with a family member for Lulu. Lenny would do better with a family of older children since he is used to teenagers and not being pulled or poked by small children. He wakes you up in the morning and stays downstairs till the last family member gets home and goes to bed. His love is beyond amazing with a heart so big. He is used to sleeping in beds w his humans and furniture. Lenny has always had a fenced in yard with a doggie door to come and go as he pleases. We are hoping we can find Lenny a home ... he has so much love to give and peace to a family to know they are safe. Thank you for taking the time to meet Lenny Please apply to adopt Lenny at RescueRidge.com and text 732 546 8805 or email email@example.com for a meet and greet..

I’ll need someone who will correct me gently when I get too much attitude – I am a Chihuahua after all! Although I’m spunky, I’ll make friends with anyone who takes their time in getting to know me including dogs. Walks and exercise are needed because I have a lot of energy.

Could you be my hero? My name is Bently and I am searching for a place to call home. See, I was abandoned and I am very afraid of that happening again. I’m a very good dog; I walk nicely on a leash, go to the bathroom outside, sleep through the night and am good for my bath. When you go to pet me I remember something hurtful and will cower a little, but I’m learning that not all people are bad. I am very social and really enjoy the company of other dogs, in fact, I love the dog park. Are you looking to add a member to your family? I would be very grateful to the wonderful person who adopts me and keeps me forever. Do you have room in your heart and home for me? I am a small dog, probably a Chihuahua mix, weigh about 8 pounds and I am about 9yrs old. If you would like to meet me, please contact my friends at Rescue Ridge, I would really like to meet you.

This is what his foster mom says about Steve: \"He was a stray. They called him Dole, because, like a pineapple, he is prickly in the outside but sweet inside. I call him Steve. Like many career criminals, Steve is charming, affectionate and loyal-until he\'s not. His moods seem unpredictable at this point. He only knows 3 dog words to say to the other dogs here and they are all insults. He wants to play but growls so friendly he scares them away. Only the deaf Pomeranian likes him. He falls asleep on any warm lap but if you startle him, he bites. I think he might be a closet alcoholic but I can\'t find his stash. He\'s not ready for prime time. (6 years old, neutered male rat terrier, up to date with shots etc)\" If you are an experienced pet owner and enjoy the challenge of loving a dog who has many sides to him, then please apply to adopt Steve at: RescueRidge.com and email: email@example.com for a meet and greet or text: 732 546 8805.
