Great Dogs Looking For Great Homes

  • Sage
    5 Yr. Old American Bulldog Mix

    LET'S WELCOME SAGE TO RESCUE RIDGE! Sage is a beautiful, 5 yrs. old, American Bulldog mix. She lived in a barn in a cardboard box. She ate only horse pellets and alfalfa. This super sweet, super mellow and gentle, people and cat-friendly gal is safe with us now at Rescue Ridge. No more living in a cold barn in a box. No more eating horse food. No more suffering. Sage loves people and takes about a half a second to want to love you. Will YOU love her? She is easy on a leash, enjoyed playing ball with the volunteers, and just snuggling in a blanket in the playroom. She couldn't wait to get out of the cold! Oh, and if you like taking your dog around town in the car, all you have to say to Sage is, 'Do you want to go in the car?' and her whole face lights up with happiness! We think she is probably also good with dogs but we will keep you posted on that. Sage lived in the barn with horses and cats and was fine with them. We are treating her skin condition, probably a reaction to her environment and food. Nonetheless, this gal has the spirit of an angel and a heart of gold. Please apply to foster or adopt Sage in central NJ at and then text 732 546 8805 to meet her.

  • Remy
    5 Yrs. Old Staffordshire Terrier/ Boxer Mix

    Remy has been with us just over a year. He has come such long way from the day he was owner surrendered. It was obvious to the local shelter we took him from that Remy had been treated very badly, chained and left outside. His heartless owner didn't want him because Remy was not aggressive enough for him! At first Remy was very fearful, and did not allow anyone to even go near him. As time passed and with the help of many dedicated volunteers at Rescue Ridge, he has learned to trust and his true personality has begun to shine through.... and what a personality it is!

    Remy loves to go for car rides and is very well mannered in the car and about town. He also loves his time in the play yard and walks calmly with the volunteers and other dogs. He has made some female dog friends and we think will do best as an only dog or with a female. Remy does not care for other male dogs. He typically needs more time to warm up to men and can sometimes be fearful of hats and hoodies.

    We recommend Remy start in a relatively quiet adult home environment. All of us a Rescue Ridge have experienced Remy responding to love and returning that love to an expanding group of volunteers. 
    We know from our experience that his trust will grow and extend to more members your family in a slow measured process.

    Please come say hello to this lovable survivor...he needs a home, he deserves a home. Will you help Remy? Please apply to adopt Remy at and text 732 546 8805 to meet him. Here is Remy in his latest video playing with Kola and one of our amazing volunteers. Kola found her forever home. Will you help Remy find his? Please share.

    Astro loves people and is dog-friendly. He loves to play in the play yard, splash in the kiddie pool, play with other dogs at the rescue, takes toys, treats, and food gently, and would love a real family and home of his own. Due to his accident, Astro needs a special person or family who is patient and understanding. He is a totally gentle soul whose only issue is potty training.

  • Steve
    6 Yrs. Old Rat Terrier

    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: and email: [email protected] for a meet and greet or text: 732 546 8805.

  • Dutchess
    5 Yrs. Old Shepherd/ Hound Mix

    Dutchess is a lovely 5 yrs. old, ~ Shepherd/ Hound mix sweetheart who came to Rescue Ridge to find a new forever home.  She lived with two other dogs her whole life and apparently had a problem with one of them.  We are still getting to know her regarding other dogs but what we do know is that she is very sweet and shy right now.  She loves to go for walks, loves to hang out in the play yard, and is coming around nicely.  We are told she is very housebroken and she is keeping her kennel very clean.  Are you looking for a sweet, low rider to share your life with?  We are guessing she is best in a home with slightly older children.  Please apply to adopt this darling Dutchess at and text 732 546 8805.  She is in our kennel in central N. J. and really wants to be in a home again.

  • Franky
    Franky 1-2 Yrs. Old American Bulldog Mix

    Welcome to Rescue Ridge, Franky! This stunning ~1 to 2 Yrs. old, American Bulldog mix sweetheart is looking for love and his forever home in central N. J. Franky was just saved by Rescue Ridge from a local NJ shelter. He is very friendly with people and the shelter told us he is dog-friendly, too. Frankie would love an active home, one where he would continue to learn his commands and have nice walks and a run around a play yard. He is a young pup, strong on a leash, but as gentle as can be. He takes toys, treats, and food gently and does his business outside. He likes to chase a ball and would benefit from a home that loves to play with an active boy. Franky settles down nicely once he has some exercise. Please apply to adopt Franky at and then text 732 546 8805 to meet him.
