  • Scarlett
    4.5 Yrs. Old Blue Nose Staffordshire Terrier

     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 have me set up with a professional trainer where I am learning 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. I walk well on a leash but sometimes I want to play with my leash so please do not let me. 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 I am housebroken. 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 is so sad seeing so many other dogs come and go.  Here is my newest video:

  • Amy
    2.5 Yr. Old Blue Nose Staffordshire Terrier

     Hello, everyone. It's me, Amy! I am here at Rescue Ridge in Monmouth County NJ waiting very patiently for my forever home. I am just 2.5 yrs. old, an amber-eyed, Blue-Nose Staffordshire Terrier, spayed female. I was saved seconds away from being euthanized by a wonderful, young woman who, along with her family, has been trying very hard to find me a loving forever home. They tell me that I am truly a special girl. I am well mannered, highly intelligent, super loving, playful, quiet, housebroken, know some commands, good on a leash, love to play tug, and I love toys and will share them with you, too. I love splashing in the kiddie pool, and love to play catch. My temporary foster family has a dog who is scared of other dogs and does not feel comfortable around me. My foster family has to keep me separated. I don't mean to scare anyone. I just want to play and be loved! My foster family has not tested me yet with other dogs so stay tuned for that but meanwhile, I love people. I am probably best in a home with slightly older children simply because I am energetic and if I do my zoomies I might knock them down by accident. I need a special diet and will need to stay on it, along with my medicine that you sprinkle on my food which is prepared in advance. I eat my food without any problems and am truly a good girl. I just need someone who will make sure that I take my medicine for my enzyme problem to help me absorb my food correctly. I also need a family who will make sure that I should not eat anything other than my treated food and snacks that are treated with the meds sprinkled on. My foster family tells me that I am well worth the extra trouble because I am a joy to be with! Have you seen my video? Here it is. https://youtu.be/Cnab2Yv6-mc Please apply to foster or adopt me at Rescueridge.com and then text us at 732 546 8805 once you receive the confirmation. My foster family loves me but their dog is very unhappy having me around. Please share me widely for a loving foster or forever home. Thank you.  Check me out in my latest video

    ~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 Rescueridge.com and then text 732 546 8805 to meet me. Thanks for listening. Please share me for my forever home.

    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 Rescueridge.com 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 rescueridge.com No inquiries without an application, please. Here is my video debut so pull up a seat and take a look https://youtu.be/TEYXF5LOEA0
