What we do know is that I need a quiet, patient, adult home...one that understands that when I am in a home, and you give me time to adjust, my true, loving personality shines through. I had a temporary foster home with a small, gentle dog and a dog-friendly cat. We all got along great. I am a kind boy...sort of like the cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz. I would not hurt a fly. I am just shy. I can't help it. You just need to be patient with me. Have you seen my video? Here is the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEuX2j7vEwM&t=115s See for yourself what love and patience can bring. I am housebroken, very good on a leash, take toys, treats, food gently, and have excellent house manners. I love to play fetch, run in the play yard, take a nice walk with you. I love to splash in the kiddie pool, too. I just need a chance. Won't you please be patient and understand that you will not win me over in two or three or even four visits. I am shy. If only I weren't you would have taken me home by now for sure, right? Well, I cannot help it. Sorry.

  • Remy
    6 Yrs. Old Staffordshire Terrier/ Boxer Mix

    Remy is one of the most special, loyal and loving dogs that you will ever meet. One of our volunteers took new pics and video of him today and I wanted to share this incredibly loving, and handsome face with you. Remy was saved by Rescue Ridge from a local NJ shelter at 5 yrs. old. His 7th birthday is coming up soon. We will celebrate and hope and pray that his birthday wish comes true...a loving, adult, forever home. After being chained outside for the first five years of his miserable life and awful home, Remy aka Rhino, was surrendered to the local NJ shelter because his owner said, 'He is not mean enough.' His owner brought in to the shelter his heavy, disgusting chain that enslaved this poor Boxer/ Staffie mix his whole life, and proudly displayed to the shelter the heavy stake that tied poor Remy's life to living outside in misery. Now, after almost two years at Rescue Ridge in central NJ, Remy has had not a single application. He is very well-loved by several of the volunteers at Rescue Ridge and admired by all. He has learned to love and trust. He can do the same with you. Remy has excellent manners, taking toys, treats, and food gently, keeps his kennel immaculately clean, is excellent to walk on a leash, great in the car, knows some commands, and is dog selective. He has had a few canine girlfriends at the rescue and treated them all with respect and kindness. Remy has gone on numerous dog pack walks and has been excellent and respectful on all of them. He has also been to our Tutu and Tails walk, and a few other adoption events and has shown himself to be an intelligent and loving boy. Truly, if there ever were a dog deserving of a loving home it is Remy. Stay tuned for his new video, please share his photos and apply to adopt Remy at rescueridge.com and text 732 546 8805 to meet him.

  • Ben
    6 Yrs. Old. Staffordshire Terrier/ Basenji Mix

    BEN IS STILL SEARCHING FOR HIS FOREVER HOME AT RESCUE RIDGE. Here is an update from his foster mom: 'He walks twice a day. Does not pull so have not used that gentle lead thing that they wrapped around his nose. He eats dry food but I add a few tasty morsels. We have taken him to pet stores and he sees other dogs but is not interested. One got in his face and he looked annoyed but no aggression. He barks outside on occasion sleeps on the couch during the day and snuggles between us in bed at night. Overall he is perfect. He does need a lot of exercise but that’s usually a plus I’m teaching him things a dog should know like fetch and lay down. He’s so smart. Has a purple tongue. I think he’s a basenji/ chow mix. But he’s perfect. Just an update if someone’s looking for a great dog.
    So Ben says Hi. He is actually the funniest dog I have ever had. When he wants something he talks to you and if you don’t do what he wants he grabs your blanket and tries to remove it. What a fun guy.'
    Please apply to adopt adorable, funny, loyal and loving Ben at Rescueridge.com and then text 732 546 8805 to meet him. He is in a foster home in central NJ. Ben is 6 yrs. old, possibly a Staffordshire Terrier mix. We also see the Basenji in him.


    Ben says, The 2 of us need not look any further because we both found what we are looking for.' That's what Ben would like to hear you say, At about 6 years old this handsome boy is looking for his furever home. He walks beautifully on a gentle leader so no pulling for him or you. He LOVES people and gets excited when he meets someone new! All your friends will feel special. BEN is Ok with other dogs but just not the playing type. He is better with older children. No cats ,please, and he has no aggression at all. Please fill out an application to meet this special guy at rescueridge.com and his friends will call to set up a meet and greet.

  • Dutchess
    5 Yrs. Old Shepherd/ Hound Mix

    URGENT! DUTCHESS IS LOSING HER FOSTER HOME.SHE IS COURTESY POSTED ON RESCUE RIDGE IN CENTRAL NJ. PLEASE APPLY TO FOSTER OR ADOPT DUTCHESS AT RESCUERIDGE.COM AND EMAIL [email protected] FOR MORE INFORMATION. Dutchess, sweet, 6 years old, is losing her foster home through no fault of her own. She had a very rough start as a puppy and faced euthanasia before someone offered to foster and then adopt her. After about 5 years she was returned, spent a few months in a kennel, and is now losing her foster home. She is shy, needs a quiet home, and would likely do best walking and relieving herself in a fenced yard. Fearful of loud noises so walking scares her. Dutchess has been evaluated by a vet behaviorist who has made recommendations to help Dutchess and is available by phone or email for further consultation. Please be the hope Dutchess needs.
