    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.

  • Thor
    8 Yrs. Old Bulldog

    Hi, everyone! My name is Thor. What's yours? The folks here at Rescue Ridge in Monmouth County NJ say that I am an incredibly handsome, 8 yrs.old Bulldog just waiting for the right person or family to come along. I have been waiting for quite a while now for the right home. The volunteers at Rescue Ridge understand me. You see, I have this thing called arthritis and sometimes I just don't feel like moving much or I get grumpy sometimes. As a result, I prefer a low-key, quiet, adult only home and when company comes over, please just let me go back into my room or crate so they don't bother me. They have me on some medicine and that really helps me to get around much better. In fact, I feel even better when I go on easy-going walks and I am really good on a leash. I am housebroken, too. I LOVE car rides so let me be your co-pilot. My friends at Rescue Ridge even got me some professional training and I have done really well...graduating with high honors or something like that:) I am best in an adult home and am dog selective. At this point, the rescue recommends that I am the only pet in your home.  I would love a very experienced owner who understands that I have had to endure a lot in my lifetime and will be your absolute most loyal and loving, affectionate companion once I know you. You see, I really am a good guy so please apply to adopt me at No inquiries, please, without an application. Kennel life is hard for an older guy like me. Won't you please adopt me soon? Please adopt me at No inquiries without an application, please. Here is my video debut so pull up a seat and take a look  HERE IS MY LATEST VIDEO IN A TEMPORARY FOSTER HOME
