  • Rhino

    Rhino is a very special, 5 yrs. old, handsome, male, neutered, brindle, Staffordshire Terrier/ Boxer mix. This poor boy suffered in his previous home. He lived outside. When he first arrived at a local, New Jersey overcrowded shelter, his owner brought him in with the ground stake and a heavy chain around his neck. It was almost as though the owner was proud of this ball and chain that this poor boy endured his whole life. At that shelter, Rhino was well loved by some of the volunteers. It was probably the first act of kindness that he ever felt and he lit up with joy when seeing some of the volunteers and staff there. Slowly, however, Rhino began to lose hope. He was declining fast. Rescue Ridge stepped up to save him and we brought him to our kennel in central New Jersey. When he arrived at Rescue Ridge all was so new to him and he was withdrawn. He would lay on his bed and make very little contact with the volunteers who desperately wanted him to feel safe and happy but knew that it would take a lot of time, given what he had been through. Slowly, some of our amazing volunteers began to make a connection with him. One volunteer gave him liverwurst and talked softly to him. She showed love and patience to him and he responded well to her, little by little. At first, when the volunteers took him out of the kennel, they would sit quietly with him. Slowly he came to trust some of the volunteers. Slowly, Rhino allowed a volunteer to touch him. Rhino is a creature of routine. Now, he loves to go in the play yard and loves his toys and treats. He loves his belly rubbed. Rhino takes toys, treats, and food gently. He keeps his kennel clean. Rhino has learned some commands and sits nicely for treats. He also loves to go for walks in the lovely woods by the kennel. These walks make Rhino incredibly happy. He even walks with other dogs, preferably female dogs but has walked with a male dog. He has no issues with food or with toys. Rhino loves car rides. He likes some dogs and not others and trusts some people. Rhino would love a quiet, adult home. He has come such a long way and truly wants to love and be loved. He has shown love to some of the volunteers and we know he can do the same to you. Our tears and love for him are slowly washing away the horrible years that he must have had…alone, outside, with very little food, water, or attention. Please come meet our special boy, Rhino. He is worth the time and wait. Please apply to adopt Rhino at RescueRidge.com and text 732 546 8805 to meet him. He would love a fenced in yard and a kind adult family or person who is an experienced dog owner to love forever. Check out Rhino walking with a male Rottie. He LOVES these walks and walks very nicely on a leash.

  • Princess

    PRINCESS BOXER/HOUND MIX FEMALE. DOG SELECTIVE. BEST AS THE ONLY PET IN THE HOME. NEWEST VIDEO: https://youtu.be/ 7XGwHccp914 RECENT VIDEO: https://youtu.be/ Dzqg3gILHYo VIDEO LINK: https://youtu.be/ y7DUjp45E84 You will be hard pressed to find a more precious girl than our PRINCESS. She is the epitome of sweetness, beautiful inside and out. Princess is an ~6 year old girl that we were thrilled to welcome into the rescue and we hope to find her the amazing home she so deserves. What you will notice first about this gal is that she is very gentle and conveys a calm demeanor. Even upon first meeting, she's apt to place herself in your lap and solicit your affection and you won't be able to help yourself. Princess will just make your heart melt. She's already captured the heart of many volunteers Princess is dog selective, easy on the leash, has been great for car rides, trips to the vet, adoption outreaches, and just about anything else you throw at her. Princess would actually love a quiet home and, although she has been fostered with other dogs, she is probably best as the only pet in the home. She was recently returned to the rescue because she did not get along with the other dog in the home and would love a more quiet home. She's truly an angel and we know she'd make a great addition to your family. Here is Princess in her newest video: https://youtu.be/ 7XGwHccp914 Check out Princess in her recent video: https://youtu.be/ Dzqg3gILHYo and here is an earlier video link: https://youtu.be/ y7DUjp45E84Apply to adopt Princess at rescueridge.com or email us with any questions - [email protected]

  • Steve

    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 protected] for a meet and greet or text: 732 546 8805. Steve is fostered in central N. J.

  • Otis

    Come meet Otis! Otis is around 7 yrs. young and is simply the sweetest, most gentle boy with a ton of love to share. We are thinking Otis is a yellow labrador/corgi mix but there may be some other breeds in there as well. Whatever he is it works because he is SO cute!! Otis loves everyone, including children who will be gentle with him, and all dogs. Otis is housebroken, neutered, microchipped and up to date on all his shots. Otis has a slight limp on his front left leg, most likely from an old injury. However, it doesn’t seem to cause him any pain or discomfort as the vet put his leg through a battery of range of motion positions and he had no reaction whatsoever … also, he regularly jumps on and off the sofa. Otis loves to go outside and walks nicely, but slowly, on a leash. Otis takes food and treats so gently, and loves to be pet and massaged. He is a great companion who is looking for a forever home with people /dogs who will love him. Please apply to adopt Otis at RescueRidge.com and text 732 546 8805 to meet him.

I am pretty house trained if you pay attention to me I do let you know. I think older kids would be best I do like to jump and greet you. I am told I need a little training. I am scared if you are gone to long so if you like being a home body I am good with that. I don't destroy but I do cry. Please say you want to meet me.
