Great Dogs Looking For Great Homes

  • Trina
    ~4 Yrs. Old Bulldog Mix

    We have the most adorable, mellow, gentle girl looking for her home. Her name is Trina and she is a totally sweet and gentle, Bulldog mix. Trina was saved by Rescue Ridge after being abandoned in an apartment with another dog. She had puppies with that male dog and apparently, she and the male were left behind. So sad! The male is with another rescue. Trina is being fostered by our good friends at @Camp Bow Wow, Eatontown, N. J. Trina is so well-loved by our friends there and walks by the other dog kennels without any issue. We think she is probably dog-selective and a meet and greet is required if you have a dog. What we do know is that Trina is very loving, a real couch potato but she also loves walks, car rides, and yes...treats! She takes toys, treats, and food very gently. Trina loves to run and does adorable 'zoomies' when she is happy. Trina knows 'Sit' and is a little strong on a leash and is best in a home with slightly older children. She will make an outstanding family dog and has a wonderful, loving, mellow nature. Trina tries very hard to keep her kennel clean and is probably housebroken. Won't you please open your heart and home to this wonderful girl? Please apply to adopt Trina at and text 732 546 8805 to meet her. She is a doll. Here is Trina in her video debut

  • Sebastian
    ~2 to 3 Yrs. Old Staffordshire Terrier/ ~/ ~French Bulldog/Labrador

    Hi, everyone! My name is Sebastian and this is my story. I am a newbie at Rescue Ridge and I am so very grateful to be here. You see, I was left abandoned in a building and was literally starving to death. I was so weak and emaciated but Rescue Ridge stepped up to save me. Now, I am in a foster home and I am waiting for you to fall in love with me. My foster dad thinks I am a super sweet, great dog and so much fun to be with! Maybe you will, too! I am about 2 to 3 years old, have lots of energy, love to play ball, too. Do you? Great, then we can start playing as soon as you adopt me. I am great at cuddling, am fully housebroken, walk really nicely on a leash, and I am very well mannered at the dinner table and with treats. In other words, I have no toy, treat or food issues and will even let you sit near me or take my food bowl while I eat. Yup, I am just a gentle and loving pup who looked Death straight in the eye and said, 'Nope, not me...I want to live, love, and be happy.' Oh, I am a pretty smart guy, too. I know 'Sit', 'Down', 'Paw', and 'Stay.' I would really benefit from even further training because I love to learn. I am neutered, vaccinated, and ready for my forever home. My foster dad thinks that I am best in a home with slightly older kids simply because I am strong and energetic and would not want to knock the little ones down. So...this is my story. Let me be your one and only pet and I would love an experienced owner, too! Come meet me soon and please apply to adopt me at and then text 732 546 8805 to meet me. Thanks for listening. Please share me for my forever home.

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 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.'

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.
