Ace3 1/2 Yr. Old Bully Breed
Ace is a 3 & 1/2-year-old bully breed. He spent his life living in neglect and abuse. His prior owner was evicted and when I asked what they were doing with the dog I was told: 'Eh... probably have someone drop him at the pound or something'. I could not let him receive a death sentence at such a young age. I took him in with hopes of finding a rescue/foster/permanent home for him. I as well as multiple friends have been working nonstop since July 3rd but keep running into dead ends. Rescue groups are full and I am now desperate!
As much as I would love to, I can no longer keep Ace with me. I tried introducing him to my two pups, Bayou and Killian. That DID NOT work... My two dogs will not tolerate him at all. Bayou and Killian have been displaced from me and are staying with my parents while I try to get Ace the help he needs.
NFORTUNATELY, my being away from them has taken its toll not only on me as well as them. Upon their vet visit, I found out that Killian has lost 15 pounds from not eating. BOTH of them are noticeably showing signs of depression and their vet is now concerned for their health. I am torn up knowing that me trying to help a dog get a chance at a better life is jeopardizing MY pups' health.
Ace really is a wonderful dog but he has his quirks due to his past. He will flinch when I reach too fast to pet him or make a sudden movement. He will also shake if I raise my voice around him. He is 76Lbs and his ribs are no longer sticking out since he has been eating regularly. Ace was neglected and was either tied outside all day, even in the heat, or he would be locked in a disgustingly filthy cellar. He was never socialized properly so he is not sure of other dogs. He did, however, live with two cats.
I am desperately seeking any assistance that can be given. If I can't get Ace somewhere safe, I am afraid that I will be forced to put him in a shelter. He will not do well in that environment. He really is well behaved and a gentle pup and just needs love and some patience.
Ace's prior owners had no record of vetting and he was never registered with the town or licensed. I had Ace vetted, neutered, and microchipped on 8/7/19.
Please, if you can help me and Ace, and in turn, help my Bayou and Killian come home to get the care they miss and so desperately need, contact me ASAP.

Tony Danza7 Yrs. Old Italian GreyhoundRead More
A volunteer wrote: 'I met a very special little guy today. His name is Tony Danza. He is an incredible mixture of Italian Greyhound, which gives him such grace and agility, and Dachshund, which gives him impeccable hunting instincts. He is just 7 years old, 14 lbs.. and, in his young life, he has seen and been through a lot. There are many sides to Tony Danza: gentle, sweet, calm, affectionate, and then there is the bouncy, 'pogo-stick' like behavior that will keep you in stitches! He is amazingly fast on his feet and can sour the skies with a leap! Tony Danza is very housebroken, enjoys walks, is quiet most of the time, and truly just wants someone to love him. Will you? Tony has the most expressive ears, the most beautiful eyes that will melt your heart. He is good with children and best with kids age 10 and older. As I had said, he has been through a lot and needs an experienced owner who is familiar with small breeds. When Tony trusts you, he is a darling, loving, protective boy...loyal and regal, smart, and sassy. I fell in love with Tony Danza today, and I hope that you will, too. He's best flying solo but does like some dogs and definitely no cats or little critters in your home. Remember, he has Doxie in him. Tony Danza is in a foster home in central N. J. and is available right now so hurry!' Tony Danza is courtesy posted for another N. J. rescue. Please apply to adopt Tony Danza at RescueRidge.com and your application will be forwarded to his rescue. Check out Tony Danza in his video debut:
Candy3.5 Yrs. Old BulldogRead More
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 socorescue.com Breed - Bulldog Mix Age - Approx 3 1/2 Size - Medium Weight - Approx 40 lbs.

Shelby4-5 Yrs. Old Pitt Bull MixRead More
Shelby - 42 pound spayed female Pit Bull mix, 4-5 years old. Hi Everyone, meet Shelby! Shelby is approximately 4-5 years old and a Pit Bull mix. Shelby is the cuddliest dog I have ever met. She just loves to sprawl across your lap for belly rubs or stretch out next to you and be your body pillow. When she's not pretending she's a lap dog, Shelby loves to play tug of war, give kisses, go for bike rides (she'll pull you all over the neighborhood!), or hang her head out the car window to feel the breeze. She LOVES to run and has lots of energy so she would be perfect in a home with a yard so she can stretch her legs and play with her people! She knows sit, stay, paw and 'get a toy!' Shelby is usually good with other dogs, but not always. She often has play dates with dogs we know, but I don't take her to dog parks and think she would do best in a home as the only dog, Shelby's owner abandoned her and the person who took her in is really not allowed dogs. Can anyone help Shelby? Please fill out an application at rescueridge.com and text 732-546-8805 for a chance to meet this beautiful girl.

Dougie8 Yrs. Old. Shepherd MixRead More
Rescue Ridge is courtesy posting to help out another local, N. J. rescue. His name is Dougie and he is waiting a very, very long time in a local, N. 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. Please...help 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. Dougie has spent a few of his 8 years in the kennel environment and is ready for a quiet low key home of his own with a big comfy bed and lots of toys to play with. We would prefer he does not go into a home with kids or frequent kid visitors as he does get nervous with commotion. 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.
