Buster's story is the bane of our existence in the rescue community. Someone adopts a cute cuddly puppy and swears they are going to make it work...and here he comes back months later as an older (and harder to adopt) dog. *sigh* So here we go again....

Buster is a sweet, now 18 month old boy who came up from St Croix to try his luck at finding a home here in the states. He is a high energy dog (like most pups his age) so please - no couch potatoes need apply. If you are looking for a calmer, more laid back dog, Buster is not the guy for you. He plays hard with the other foster dogs and actually puts our 75 pound Rottie mix in his place. He likes to wrestle and chase balls in the yard so it's important to get him enough exercise...after all, a tired dog is a good dog. While he is not completely deaf, he is hard of hearing so you need to speak to him in a loud voice. He responds to treats and goes right in his crate to chase a biscuit. His original foster mom had him housebroken but he has had a couple accidents when he came back (only a few - not bad at all). But I've had tons of dogs pass thru here so the temptation is really great for some dogs. Buster does like his pets and cuddles. But it's not long until he's off like a bullet again when he sees the other dogs rough-housing. He is somewhat protective of his food and bones around the other dogs but he is fine letting the humans handle him and take away his food. However, we don't recommend him going to a house with very young kids. We want to avoid clash of the (dropped) cookies.
Buster is vetted, up to date with shots, neutered , dewormed and microchipped. If you are looking to add a fun guy to your family, look no further. We are GUESSING that he will be a medium sized dog when grown (maybe around 50 lbs). But we can't guarantee that since we don't know his parents. He is currently around the 35 pound mark.

We keep our website current so if you see a pet listed here you can be pretty certain it is still available. Send in an application located here and we will be in touch. (
There is an adoption fee if you decide to take one of our "All Stars" home. We prefer homes within a 50 mile radius of Linden, NJ.

About All Star Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

All Star Pet Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit, no-kill organization formed in April 2006. We don’t have a facility & are comprised solely of foster homes for homeless pets. Our mission is to network with other shelters & rescue groups to take in animals needing a new start. We don’t discriminate based on breed, age or health status & only place the animals in loving & responsible homes. We also work to educate the public about the benefit of spaying or neutering their animals & the usefulness of micro-chipping.

We receive no public funding & count on animal lovers to help provide the medical care & supplies necessary for the health, safety & comfort of our rescues. Monetary donations are always needed & greatly appreciated. It’s because of monies donated that we’re able to continue our work for the animals. We’re a recognized 501c3 organization so your donations are tax deductible.
