  • Candy
    3.5 Yrs. Old Bulldog

    Candy is currently being fostered in and is available for adoption in the Pennington, NJ area Candy came to us in Feb 2014 as a pup of 6 months and has basically grown up in our rescue. She's been available for adoption the entire time but seems to be overlooked and passed over by potential adopters. Maybe it's because she doesn't always 'show well' at events, maybe it's just that old 'She's a Bulldog' stigma...whatever the reason, Candy has yearned for her new home for nearly four years. What numerous people are missing out on is one really terrific and loving dog! Candy is well mannered and simply loves human interaction, she will sit by your side & let you pet her for hours. While in her foster home, her favorite thing to do when let out of her crate is to run around the entire house leaping as if to say 'I'm free'! Although a fenced in backyard isn't required, she would love one because she loves to gallop flipping her toys into the air! Candy is leash and crate trained and has down all basic commands. She loves car rides & watching TV An ideal home for Candy would be with no other dogs,cats and no young children. She just needs a low key couple that just wants to devote their time to growing this wonderful dog into the greatness we all know she can be! Candy has been on her monthly flea/tick and heart worm preventatives since coming to us and has consistently tested negative for heart worms. Candy just needs a chance and she won't disappoint you. If you'd like to give Candy the home that she so deserves and has been waiting for, then please submit an application at Breed - Bulldog Mix Age - Approx 3 1/2 Size - Medium Weight - Approx 40 lbs. PLEASE EMAIL HER RESCUE AT [email protected] for more information. Here is Candy in her video debut

    Hello everyone! My name is Chula! I am a really gentle, sweet, 5 yrs. old, housebroken, Staffordshire Terrier. This is my story...I lived in a wet basement my entire life I never got a chance to enjoy walks, bask in the sunlight, and so my skin is not so pretty. I have sores on my legs and my skin on my back shows through what could have been my beautiful fur. But that is all behind me now, thanks to a local, N. J. rescue who saved me and I am being housed and pampered now at Rescue Ridge as a courtesy to that rescue. I LOVE people and really enjoy when you pet me...I never had any love before and now I am really enjoying attention. I prefer male dogs but also get along with some female dogs so if you have a canine family member, let's do a meet and greet. I would love a quiet home and would love to get as much attention as you are willing to give. I soak up love like a sponge! I take toys, treats, and food gently, am easy on a leash and love walks. Won't you please love me forever? Please apply to adopt me at and text 732 546 8805 to meet me and your application will be forwarded to my rescue. Hurry! I would love a foster or forever home

  • Nash 3 Yr. Old Lab mix

    Hi everyone, I'm Nash. Isn't that an adorable name. I am 3 years old and a Lab mix. No one told me what I am mixed with. A nice person rescued me from the shelter and now Rescue Ridge is helping him find me a home. I am okay on a leash after a few minutes. I like people and dogs. I have no food aggression but I do like my toys so I don't want people or dogs trying to take them away from me. I know sit, paw, catch the ball and I even give it back. Do you want a real cutie for a fur friend? I think I fit the bill. Go to to fill out an application and my new friends will call you for a meet and greet. No young children just cause I don't know if I like them yet. No cats for same reason. Can't wait to meet my new family.

J. kennel and is also courtesy posted at Best Friend Dog and Animal Adoption, Inc. and Best Friend Thrift Shop for you to adopt him. him out! Dougie is a sweet and gentle boy who hasn’t had the easiest life but we are working hard to find him the perfect home.

He is a Shepherd mix who can be shy at times around men but will warm up after some time. Dougie does enjoy playtime with smaller dogs and could benefit from another calm non-invasive dog.

  • Riley
    Riley 5 Yrs. Old Lhasa Apso

    Riley was a stray in central Jersey and was then adopted by a family unfamiliar with Lhasas. He needs a new forever home. 

    He's a friendly bouncy, 5 yrs. old, Llasa Apso guy but takes his guard duties seriously while the adopters were looking for a happy go lucky family dog. Riley is affectionate and playful but needs a person
