He is a big mush, loves to cuddle. He was a euth list pull from Manhattan ACC, was found as a stray by the police (hence the name "Fuzz", lol) He was adopted out once, also in NJ, but was returned for aggression. We have not seen any severe aggression- and we have tried to see what would get a rise out of him. He plays and curls up with my two big boys (lab/ridgeback mix, shep/shar pei mix) and has no food aggression or an ... ything with them. He knows basic commands, is house trained and crate trained. He is not a big fan of the crate, but will go in on command. I don't think he would do well if crated all day. Very treat motivated, which is helpful bc he can be a little stubborn- there is no forcing this big boy to do something. He def needs a strong leader, who will be patient with slow intros etc. I feel like he is finally learning how to "dog", like doing things a normal dog would do- running around outside, playing with dog toys, just having fun. He does have some skin issues- scarring on his neck, possibly from embedded collar, and scarring on his muzzle, possibly from being taped/tied shut. He has some skin issues on his feet also, which the vet thinks is allergy related, and we check/clean his paws regularly

About Second Chance Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, individual, private rescue group dedicated to giving unwanted dogs and cats a second chance. Most of the animals we rescue are strays and or owner surrenders to high kill city shelters. Many of them have been pulled off “death row”. We are very passionate about what we do, we love and care for these animals unconditionally. Our goal is to place our homeless rescues in permanent loving homes as their former owners have already abandoned them at least once before.

Adoption process includes adoption application, phone interview and home visit. Vet references are checked!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a physical shelter, we place our rescues in foster homes or boarding facilities where they are socialized and nurtured back to health before we place them in their forever home. If you are interested in adopting a friend, kindly look at our available pet on this site.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption/Foster Application must be completed online via the link below.

Home visit is required along with Vet references. Our full list of fees have been listed on the adoption application. Our dogs come fully vetted and have to be spayed/neutered prior to adoption.
