  • Remy
    5 Yrs. Old Staffordshire Terrier/ Boxer Mix

    Remy has been with us just over a year. He has come such long way from the day he was owner surrendered. It was obvious to the local shelter we took him from that Remy had been treated very badly, chained and left outside. His heartless owner didn't want him because Remy was not aggressive enough for him! At first Remy was very fearful, and did not allow anyone to even go near him. As time passed and with the help of many dedicated volunteers at Rescue Ridge, he has learned to trust and his true personality has begun to shine through.... and what a personality it is!

    Remy loves to go for car rides and is very well mannered in the car and about town. He also loves his time in the play yard and walks calmly with the volunteers and other dogs. He has made some female dog friends and we think will do best as an only dog or with a female. Remy does not care for other male dogs. He typically needs more time to warm up to men and can sometimes be fearful of hats and hoodies.

    We recommend Remy start in a relatively quiet adult home environment. All of us a Rescue Ridge have experienced Remy responding to love and returning that love to an expanding group of volunteers. 
    We know from our experience that his trust will grow and extend to more members your family in a slow measured process.

    Please come say hello to this lovable survivor...he needs a home, he deserves a home. Will you help Remy? Please apply to adopt Remy at and text 732 546 8805 to meet him. Here is Remy in his latest video playing with Kola and one of our amazing volunteers. Kola found her forever home. Will you help Remy find his? Please share.

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.

  • Steve
    6 Yrs. Old Rat Terrier

    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: and email: [email protected] for a meet and greet or text: 732 546 8805.

  • Bob
    2 Yrs. Old Shih Tzu

    Hello there, my name is Bob. I am a 2 yr old one-eyed clown with a little extra love in the middle if you know what I mean (AKA I could stand to lose a few pounds). My life started off a little rough. Seems like the people that owned me previously had a tendency to hurt me sometimes so I get a bit scared and defensive if you come to pet me too quickly or if you raise your hand around me to fast. I like to do my own thing most of the day like lounge around and smell the pretty flowers and watch TV on the couch but I am not opposed to a fun walk around the block either. I’m pretty low maintenance. I would be better off in a household with no children due to my quirks but I do like other dogs and cats. If you think you would like to give me a chance, please contact rescue ridge for any information. I would like to meet you and potentially be a part of your happy family. Please apply to adopt at and text 732 546 8805 to meet.
