  • Millie
    1 Yr. Old Indian Pariah Dog

    MILLIE IS A COURTESY POST FOR ANOTHER RESCUE. PLEASE CONTACT THEM DIRECTLY. https://rescuerswithoutborders.org/

    My name is Millie. I am a little over 1-year-old Indian Pariah Dog. I was born in India and then rescued to the United States when I was 4 months old.

    I am sweet but shy at first and then I will never forget who you are once we are friends. I continue to learn to trust new people and feel comfortable in new surroundings as my foster Mom is socializing me. Sometimes I might get possessive of my favorite toys but I don't have any problem with my food being handled. My Foster Mom is quite impressed with how easy I am to train and always says what a good girl I am!!!

    I would do best in a quiet place so a home without children is a must. Since I am such a smart and athletic dog I need an experienced parent who will take me on long walks/run and have time to train and socialize me. I get along with most dogs, but no cats or small animals as I like to chase them.

    If you will help me become a more confident dog I will be your most loving and loyal companion.

    I am healthy, spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all my shots. I am house trained, I will paw at the door when I need to go. I know all my basic commands of sit, stay, lie down, come, and paw. I will roll over on occasion as well. I have been crate trained and sometimes I will go there for a break. Going for car rides is not a problem, tell me where to sit and I will stay there, I am just happy that we are going on an adventure.

    I walk nicely on the leash without pulling. I love long walks in the park and if you love to run I will be right at your side. I am an excellent running partner and a good candidate for agility training. I love to play, racing around your backyard so if you have a fence that would be great. I will make sure it stays a squirrel-free zone. When you leave I might howl to say goodbye but then I will stop and settle down quickly. When you come home my tail will be in full helicopter mode, I will even give a smile to my best friends. I don't bark a lot but if someone approaches the house I will let you know.

    I am easy to groom and I also hardly shed at all.

    I am beautiful with unique marking with spots on my chest and even the bottoms of my paws, there is a diamond mark on my chest. I love it when you scratch my ears and let me know I did a good job by telling me, good girl. I have a lot of energy and when you get it out I love to find a nice place to curl up and enjoy a nap.

    Let's meet and you will know what a good dog I am!

    If you are interested please email [email protected] for an adoption application.

    We are looking for an active dog-experienced home that has a fenced yard and no children or cats.

    Information on the Indian Pariah Dog breed:

    IN (Indian Native), Desi (Local) or Pariah Dog is a pure, ancient, indigenous dog of India that abounds the Indian streets. A long time ago, thousands of years before the arrival of modern pure breeds, a race of dogs much like this one inhabited the Indian subcontinent. These were the very first domesticated dogs and Man's earliest animal companions. It has evolved entirely through natural selection without human intervention of any kind resulting in a very hardy, extremely intelligent, alert, and independent thinking dog.

    This is a natural breed of dog that is pure in a true sense and how nature intended a dog to be; hence they are way superior to the artificially developed man-made breeds that we call pure breeds today. Its origin dates back 12,000 to 15,000 years - older than any other breed. This is a natural primitive breed that is a direct descendant of the early domesticated dogs. These dogs are found to be genetically healthy with no known genetic diseases and a very strong immune system. They are perfectly adapted for survival; a free-roaming life on the street for these dogs is always difficult and often hostile and hence requires high order of intelligence, quick and independent thinking to survive. On the streets it is the survival of the fittest, usually, out of a litter, some will get run over by cars while others will succumb to hunger and malnutrition. Only the hardiest and intelligent ones will survive to produce offsprings. When this survivor is adopted as a Pet, their owners are often awe-struck with their beauty, grace, intelligence, loyalty, and hardiness.

    They are highly adaptable, quick learners, and versatile, and are known to be even smarter and definitely calmer than the intelligent Border Collies. They are very agile and excel at many dog sports such as agility and also make great jogging/running companions and can be even faster than Grey Hounds. While active outdoors, they are usually very calm and quiet indoors. They have tremendous stamina and hence need an active family who will take them for daily brisk walks or a run.

    IN Dogs are sensitive by nature and do not respond well to harsh training methods and hence need an even-tempered, gentle but firm, and loving owner who knows how to calmly and consistently communicate the rules of the house.

    These dogs love children and are known to have a calm and gentle demeanor around them. They bond strongly with their people and make an excellent family pet that is very loving, loyal, and intelligent. These dogs do not bark much but are always alert; they are friendly yet wary of strangers and make good watchdogs.

    IN Dogs are low maintenance dogs as they are generally very healthy and like to stay clean; they hardly shed and have virtually no doggy odor. Their smooth, fine short hair coat is easy to groom. They have an all-weather coat that allows them to easily adapt to different weather conditions.

    A well-looked after pet IN dog will rarely need to see a vet and may live a healthy life of up to the age of 12 - 16 years.

    This is a medium-size dog with an average height of 20-25 inches (51-64 cms) at the shoulder and generally weighs about 28-55 pounds (12 - 22 kgs).

    They are found in all colors and variations with erect or floppy ears; however, a typical IN Dog usually will have erect ears, a wedge-shaped head, and a tail that curls over its back. Most IN Dogs are similar in appearance to other prehistoric dogs like the Australian Dingos.

    In the few couple of years, we have successfully rescued, rehabilitated, and found homes of over 1000 IN dogs throughout the Northeast United States and more recently on the West coast.

    Please visit our Facebook page to see the IN dogs adopted through our rescue.

She is an extremely happy pup, her tail is wagging all the time. She naps on her bed in front of the fireplace every chance she can get. When she is in her crate, she snuggles herself into her blanket, so you don’t see her. She loves human companionship and thrives from it.

  • Jay
    2 Yrs. Old English Bulldog

    Jay is courtesy posted for another local NJ rescue. You can apply directly to them at bfdaaa.com

    INTRODUCING JAY

    ADOPTERS MUST HAVE BULLDOG EXPERIENCE

    Just look at this face! Jay is a truly amazing 2-year-old, 50 pound English Bulldog who puts a smile on the face of everyone he meets. Affectionate and super sweet, Jay is the perfect WFH partner, as long as you can mute his snuffly snores in the Zoom meetings. Jay loves his people and develops very strong attachments to his family. He can be bullish and persistent around strangers, but with patient support and encouragement, he will calm down and show his loving and gentle nature. Due to this, he will only be adopted into a home with kids 15 and older.
    Jay is house trained, has good inside and outside manners, and is not destructive. He is comfortable in his crate and settles down easily to sleep through the night. This active and energetic boy enjoys long walks and is great on a leash. Jay is very smart and knows basic commands, although he can be stubborn - this guy definitely needs a strong leader. He is a people pleaser and responds well to praise and redirection, along with a tasty treat or two. Jay does have some resource guarding issues that will need to be managed. He loves being in the car and will be happy to accompany you on any errand or road trip. Playful and athletic, Jay is indifferent to other dogs, but we feel he would be happiest if he was the only dog in the home. He has not been tested with cats. A large yard with plenty of room for his zoomies and acrobatic antics would be ideal, but as long as he gets regular exercise with someone he loves he will do well. Jay is a very special dog, and you couldn't ask for a more loyal and devoted companion.
    If you think Jay is a fit for your family, then please go to bfdaaa.com to complete an application.

He finds comfort in his foster sister Bitzy, a fellow chihuahua. Within a couple of months, he has made gains in trusting humans.

  • Nina
    -1.5 Yrs. old Staffordshire Terrier Mix

    Nina is the sweetest most loving dog. She has yet to meet a person she hasn't loved or a lap she did not want to sprawl on. She's the perfect cuddle buddy.

    Nina's story began in Detroit where we can only assume things were not the best for her. She found her way into the arms of a college student who rescued her from the shelter. Nina began showing signs of reactiveness with other animals and separation anxiety. During Covid, her adopter went home to a house with another dog and 2 cats. The family has tried everything to help Nina but her fear of aggression is just not working in a multi-pet household.

    Nina is an incredibly smart dog and has (remotely) taken one puppy class where she quickly learned a bunch of commands. She's extremely attentive, housebroken, great on a leash, and loves the car. Her favorite past-times are to cuddle on any available lap and be the perfect pillow and to do zoomies around the backyard with her squeaky toys. In the home, Nina is mainly a quiet little love bug.

    A great fit for Nina would be a one-pet home with a fenced-in yard as she loves, loves, loves to run. She loves kids, adults and all humans. She does have separation anxiety, which the behaviorist said will lower with time, but a stay/work-at-home adult would be ideal.

    Please contact me directly @ [email protected] for an application.

    Poor Scarlett is back at Rescue Ridge. Her foster home did not work out. Too much energy for the older dog. Please give Scarlett a chance at a loving, forever home for the Holidays. She is so smart and sweet.
    Hi, everyone! My name is Scarlett. I am a sweet, 4-4.5 yrs. old, Blue Nose Staffordshire Terrier saved by Rescue Ridge from a local NJ shelter. I have learned a great deal here at Rescue Ridge in Monmouth County NJ and the folks here sent me to a professional trainer where I learned even more. I know a few commands, take treats and food gently, love to go for walks, car rides, and play in the play yard at the kennel. I am good with large dogs and the folks here have not tested me with small dogs or cats so we are really not sure about that. What they are sure about is that I give wonderful kisses once I get to know you. I am best in an adult home with an experienced owner. I get too excited about my toys but you can correct me to let me know to stop. That is what my trainer has taught me and I am eager to learn and please you. They really want me to go to a home that is willing to keep up with my great training. If you are willing, then that would be perfect! I keep my kennel very clean and am housebroken in a home. I was in a foster home and was a good girl. I really want to go home so please apply to adopt me at rescueridge.com No inquiries, please, without an application. I sure hope to meet you soon so we can have lots of fun together! Please apply to adopt Scarlett at rescueridge.com She is waiting in her kennel in Monmouth County NJ and she wants to go home for the Holidays. Here is her newest video:

He is good with other larger, gentle, senior dogs. Due to his being visually impaired, Martin sometimes has difficulty understanding social cues when around other dogs and he needs another dog who is patient and yet can teach him how to behave. He would even love to be your one and only pet. No cats, please. No small animals. Martin is housebroken and crate trained. He loves to just hang around and snuggle with you. Please apply to adopt Martin at Rescueridge.com and then text 732 546 8805 to meet him. Please share and help Martin finally have a forever home.
