Meet Bako
poodle
Type:Dog
Name:Bako
Breed:American Staffordshire Terrier,Pit Bull Terrier
Age:Senior
Gender:M

Description

My name is BAKO and I'm a handsome 10 yr young M Blue Amstaff/Pitbull Terrier. I'm 66 lbs of PURE GREEK GOD! I was surrendered by my owner due to MOVING OVERSEAS. I was sad to see my owner move and leave me behind, but he was worried because I'm a senior that the flight would be too stressful for me as I've never been crated/contained.. but it's ok.. I'm glad to have stayed here as I'm ready to move forward to a new life adventure with new hoomans! I'm a very sweet, easy going, fun loving, happy go lucky guy. I like everyone I meet but I haven't met alot of dogs , so I'm a little socially ackward with other dogs. When I see them on my walks I get very excited to greet them and can be a little pushy but I've never gotten snarky or snappy.. so I could use some help in the dog socialization dept. I just need to hang out with more dogs so I can get used to them. I used to live with a cat so I'm fine with cats. I'm fine with young kids in passing but have never lived with any kids so I think older kids ages 7 yrs+ would be best. I'm in great shape/health for a senior and people can't believe my age because I'm lively, have medium energy and love to go for walks. My back legs can be a little cranky so it's best if I don't have to walk up too many stairs and a home in the suburbs with a yard would be ideal/best... but an apt with an elevator would be fine too. I'm SUCH AN EASY GOING SPECIAL guy and a TOTAL LOVE BUG!! I like to snuggle next to you on the couch or bed and I'm always up for a game of fetch inside or out! I'm JUST THE BEST!!! and an AMBASSADOR for MY BREED. I'm looking for that wonderful person/couple/family who will LOVE & APPRECIATE me for the rest of my golden years!!

Meet Maribella
poodle
Type:Dog
Name:Maribella
Breed:Pit Bull Terrier
Age:Adult
Gender:F

Description

That sweet face says it all! 7 year old Maribella is a VERY good, happy girl. She is very active and would benefit from exercise on a daily basis, even a good “zoomie” run in the yard! She does have a high prey drive so she will chase an animal that runs by but she does get along with one of the calm, easy going hospital cats. This cat has lived with dogs and does know proper doggie etiquette. Dogs with high prey drives are energetic and intelligent, just need productive way to expel all that energy! She is semi housebroken. She will need to learn a routine since she doesn’t have one currently. Small children are not recommended as she is 70lbs and will most likely knock them over by accident. Maribella is boarded at a vet hospital and quickly became a staff favorite, but she longs for her own family and a home to call her very own. She is spayed, vaccinated and ready for her forever home. She is also available for foster-to-adopt placement as well! Maribella just needs to catch a break and her love and devotion will melt your heart! Please email Kellie at kelliekay77@gmail.com with any questions or to set up a meet and greet with Maribella!

Breed:Whippet,Hound
Age:Young
Gender:M

Description

Meet Tiger a handsome Indian Pariah dog rescued from the streets of Delhi, India. He is little over 1 year old, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and neutered. Tiger is a loving dog who is always seeking love and attention from people he knows. However he is wary of strangers and takes time to get to know them. He is very affectionate and sensitive so needs a patient and loving person who will train him with treats using positive reinforcements. He is a good watch dog too. Tiger is playful and energetic. He loves going on walks and running in the yard. He is crate, leash trained and house broken. He would do best in a active home with older children who has experienced with dogs. He needs to be an only pet. Tiger in being fostered in Monmouth Junction, NJ. Please email Rescuewithoutborders@gmail.com for an adoption application. 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 into 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 which 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 most hardiest and intelligent ones will survive to produce off springs. 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 a 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 watch dogs. IN Dogs are low maintenance dog 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 – 18 years. This is a medium size dog with an average height of 20-25 inches (51-64 cms) at the shoulder and generally weigh about 28-55 pounds (12 – 22 kgs). They are found in all colors and variation 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 last few years, we have successfully rescued, rehabilitated and found homes over 500 pariah dogs throughout the Northeast United States and the West Coast. Please visit our Face book page to see the IN dogs adopted through our rescue. http://www.facebook.com/RescueWithoutBorders


Meet MS. BUNNY - Those Ears!
poodle
Type:Dog
Name:MS. BUNNY - Those Ears!
Breed:Pit Bull Terrier
Age:Adult
Gender:F

Description

*During the current health situation** If you are interested in adopting, please email the shelter manager, Becky Snyder at rsnyder@edisonnj.org and she will send you an application to fill out and discuss potentially setting up a meeting. The subject of the email should be "Adoption - Pet's Name". Thank you. Be safe and stay healthy. UPDATE FROM HER FOSTER FAMILY: My name is Ms. Bunny, and I came to Edison Shelter as a stray. I want to do everything my foster parents are doing and follow them everywhere they go. I'm very energetic, and I love to chew on my bones. If I see my foster parents walking around, I grab the nearest toy in case they're ready to play. When playtime is over, I'm just as excited to snuggle up with them. I love going for runs and hikes, and the car rides are just as nice. I'm potty trained and I'm a fast learner, so I know quite a few commands. I know I still have some learning to do, like working on my leash skills. Sometimes I get the itchy scratchies because my skin is sensitive. My special diet and frequent baths really help and my skin has improved. I'm playful and loveable, but my personality does come with a few quirks. I would do best with adults only since I don't realize my own strength during playtime. I'm okay around other dogs, but I don't like it when they bark at me first as I can be a bit reactive. My ideal home would be one where there are no other canines or felines. Sometimes I forget I'm not a lap dog, but I want to be as close as possible to give unlimited kisses. Do you have room in your heart and your home to be loved by this pretty girl? A LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT MS. BUNNY! She has her very own INSTAGRAM page! Follow her here...https://instagram.com/msbunnypittie?igshid=t5tywyz4knr6 AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION OR RESCUE. ADOPT ME! Say hello to Ms. Bunny! Oh my goodness...those ADORABLE EARS!! She is a young (approx. 2-1/2 year old) terrier mix. She is very sweet, loves to go for walks and has a nice energy. She would do best with older children as the only pet. She knows some basic commands (sit, stay, paw, food, outside and come). She has been at the shelter and now in a foster home for quite some time. She craves attention and just wants to be loved. Please consider giving her a home of her own. SHE LOVES BUTT SCRATCHES, LOVES TO BE PET, LOVES ATTENTION, LOVES TREAT STUFFED KONGS & TOYS, LOVES TO PLAY, LOVES TO SNUGGLE, LOVES TO FOLLOWS YOU AROUND WITH A TOY (in case you want to play) and SHE IS A VERY QUICK LEARNER!

Meet Walker: playful! (NJ)
poodle
Type:Dog
Name:Walker: playful! (NJ)
Breed:Labrador Retriever,Treeing Walker Coonhound
Age:Young
Gender:M

Description

**Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, our Adoption Team has decided to officially put all adoptions on pause. The health and safety of all involved is of utmost importance. Blind Dog Rescue Alliance prides ourselves in our very careful and thorough screening process of all applicants, and with all the current restrictions in our country, this is just not possible. We would not be able to conduct in-person home visits, a very important part of the process, nor would we be able to provide transport. As applications come in, they will be placed on hold until restrictions are lifted. Once restrictions have been lifted, we will reach out to the potential adopters to see if they are still interested before proceeding. If you have any questions please contact adoption@blinddogrescue.org. We appreciate your understanding during these difficult times. Blind Dog Rescue Alliance will transport within reasonable distance. Walker is being fostered in NJ. What we know about Walker: *is epileptic and on phenobarbital *young and loves to play *learning manners *housebroken *sweet *can see some in bright light, but has trouble in dim light What Walker's foster mom has to say about Walker: Walker is a solid, young dog. He is respectful of corrections, but loves to play non-stop if he can. He is a growly player. So expect him to talk back. He is learning from his foster home and four-legged family. Walker knows to go into his crate to be fed and he sleeps there too. Walker has limited vision as he has difficulty seeing in low light. He has totally detached retinas possibly due to some sort of trauma. He does not appear to be in pain. The vet observed the eye movement (similar to vestibular) and the “off" gait he has. While exaggerated stepping is associated with the blindness, the limited correction of the paws when they fold over, and the wide spread of his body movements may be neurological. Walker may be a little bit different but it does not slow him down. Walker will bark and scratch a door when he wants to go out. When crated, he will bark, when loose he goes straight to the door and scratch. He will notify you when it is time to be fed and will run right into his crate and patiently wait for his bowl. He, however, does not like when another dog comes around his food. Walker is anxious with new situations such as getting into the car, going to the vet etc. but settles when he has time to work out what is going on. Walker is not comfortable around a lot of dogs and will probably do best in a home as an only dog with owners who are not away for long hours. He’s a doll when cuddling by himself with his person or people. Total devotion. Takes treats ever so nicely (even from the vet techs he just met), needs some leash walking help. Still tries to chew on your shoes while your feet are still in them, loves to have you try and chase him, plays tug-of-war with rope toys, totally loves his Kong with cheese and any Nylabone. Blind Dog Rescue has voted against the use of electric fencing effective immediately.

Meet Fosters/Volunteers needed
poodle
Type:Dog
Name:Fosters/Volunteers needed
Breed:Hound,Terrier
Age:Baby
Gender:F

Description

Please note that the pups that you see in these pictures have been adopted. However we regularly rescue pups like these from India who are available for adoption in the US. We are looking for fosters or volunteers in New Jersey for our IN pups/dogs rescued from the streets of India. We need committed foster homes for our pups who will take care of them when they are in the U.S. till a forever home is found. We are also looking for volunteers who is willing to fly with the dogs. It is extremely expensive to fly the dogs solo from India to the U.S; however it is lot cheaper if you are flying with the dogs. If you are visiting Delhi (where we have foster homes) or surrounding cities in India and would like to help us rescue a pup or two from the streets by flying them with you back home to the U.S. please contact us. Please email Rescuewithoutborders@gmail.com for more information. More Information: Desi (Local) or IN (Indian Native) or Pariah Dog is a natural primitive breed which is a direct descendant of the early domesticated dogs. Its truly a pure breed whose origin dates back 12,000 to 15,000 years – older than any other breed We are very proud to be a Rescue without borders. So, what does it mean to be a rescue without borders? In the last two years we were able to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for over 100 IN dogs in the U.S. and Canada. We rescue and adopt within the U.S. irrespective of state borders, but now you may be wondering, why India? Typically in India, dogs that are born on the streets are not kept as family pets. Most people cannot afford to keep a dog as a pet and those who do prefer a western breed as a status symbol. So these street dogs spend their entire lives on the streets in deplorable conditions. Most of the pups that are born on the streets will get killed by passing cars, or die of starvation or malnutrition. These dogs/ pups often become victims of cruelty as some people resort to cruel measures to get rid of them from their streets. The average life span of a dog living on the streets of India is 5 years during which time they continue to live starving miserable life full of abuse and suffering; however when these same dogs when given a chance to live in a home as family pets will live a healthy life of up to 16-18 years. That is why we rescue these dogs to give them an opportunity to be a part of a family and to live their life in a comfort and safety of a loving home.

Name:Baby Blue
Breed:American Staffordshire Terrier
Age:Adult
Gender:M

Description

This guy is one awesome dog. Baby Blue is a gorgeous 8 year old blue-nosed ptibull. He was dumped in the streets to fend for himself. Blue has been in rescue for more than four years and has been waiting for so long for a family to love him. He has proved to be very loving and sweet. He is also very strong but walks well with a training collar by your side. He is utd with his vaccinations, is neutered, housebroken, microchipped, 65 pounds, and is crate trained; but has free roam of the house at this time. Blue loves to play with his toys and will bring them to you to play. Blue also loves to bite on hard bones. He is a big, sweet mush. He would be fine in a home with older respectful children. We don't know how he is with cats but think he would be best in a home without them. He is a very unusual looking guy - not only because of his blue-gray coat but also because of his pretty eyes and freckled face. He also gives puppy kisses and loves tummy rubs. Blue loves any attention that comes his way and likes to be petted and hugged. He is looking for a family who will love and spend time with him and teach him all the things he needs to learn. He is a quick learner and is like a sponge. He learned to sit in a day. He also knows the commands of stay, down, paw, speak, and we are currently working on rolling over. If you think you might be able to give Baby Blue the love and caring forever home that he so deserves please call Judi Burns at (908) 510-8721 or send e-mail to fries3@aol.com

Heinz 57 has been with us for more than three years and came to us from GA. He is a wonderful guy once he gets to know u. We think he was appropriately named because when you look at him, it is hard to figure out what his breed might be. Heinz is approximately 6 years old, 48 pounds, neutered, utd with his vaccinations, HW negative and mostly housebroken. He is so cute, a little shy, happy, friendly and loving. He also has squiggly ears that curl. His eyes have a reddish tinge to them that really compliments his beautiful, thick chestnut fur. Heinz loves to run around in the yard with the other dogs and seems to be awed when it snows. When he sees shadows he pounces on them. He likes toys, especially a squeaky ball and bites on hard bones. Heinz has a special ball that only he plays with. This is his favorite thing. He knows how to sit and waits patiently for his food and treats. Heinz is a very laid back, sweet kind of guy who enjoys being petted and talked to. He would be fine with respectful older children and seems to be fine with most other dogs. Don't know how he is with cats. If you are looking for an exceptional dog to join your family, please consider Heinz. All he wants is to love and be loved. Heinz is so deserving of a forever home. If you think he might be a match for you, please call Judi Burns at (908) 510-8721 or send us an application which can be found on the site. Please return the application to fries3@aol.com

Layla is one of the most beautiful dogs we have ever had in our rescue. She is a female Labrador Retriever mix and is 3 1/2 years old. She is approx 48 pounds. Layla is spayed, housebroken, heartworm negative, up to date on her vaccinations, and micro-chipped. She walks well on a leash and would make a good running partner. Layla knows the commands of sit and stay. she also knows how to give her paw and to down when asked. Her favorite thing to do is sit on your lap and go to sleep. Layla also loves to give kisses and cuddle. She has been here for more than two years and no one has shown much interest in her. Layla has come into rescue from a kill shelter in Georgia where her time was almost up. She is doing well since coming into rescue and loves to give kisses and would love nothing more than to sit on your lap and snuggle. Her eyes are the most gorgeous color and seem to penetrate through you as she looks at you. She takes her treats very gently from your hand. We believe Layla would do well with children but care should be taken with very young children who could be knocked over by accident through play. Layla loves to play with her toys, including a ball and hard bones, which she loves to bite on. She enjoys the company of other dogs and loves to play together with them in the yard. A fenced yard is a must for this dog so she would be able to run free and safely. Layla is a high energy dog who loves to play with human or dog.
