CArmine was surrendered by owner and going to be fostered by owner, Carmine is a 2 year old American Bulldog that is all white with  a brown spot. He is neutered and was obtained from a private breeder.. Carmine  is house trained and crate trained. He knows sit, stay, come and is food  motivated. He is crated at night and during the day. He is kept loose when the  other dogs are not around. The average time that he can be left alone is 8+  hours. The dog seems fine when left alone. He has darted out several times.  Carmine lives in an active house with adults and teens. He is playful and  affectionate. He is very friendly and tolerant of strangers. He guards his  chewies/bones and food. He is accustomed to ear cleaning and car rides. He has  lived with other dogs for 2 years, but does not like other dogs. He has never  shown aggression towards people and has never bitten. The owner would like people to  know that Carmine is a sweet, lovable and loyal dog.
Spoke with previous owner about further detail on the owner surrender notes. Fran said  that Carmine guards his stuff from the other dogs not humans. Carmine would be  better for older teens because of his size and also because he tried to play with her daughters sweater (playing tug).

Please consider providing a home for more than one dog, especially if you are considering adopting a puppy. Dogs are pack animals and very much enjoy as well as need other dog company to learn to play, socialize and be good companion animals to people. The upside to this is that you won't feel as guilty leaving them alone and you get twice the love. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster or volunteer, and you can always donate!

About Zani's Furry Friends

About Our Rescue Group...

Zani's Furry Friends is an organization committed to rescuing companion animals from New York City's shelters where, unfortunately, they are at risk for euthanasia due to overcrowding. Each dog or cat rescued from a shelter opens a cage and gives an opportunity to another pet to await a chance for adoption or rescue, thereby potentially saving yet another life.

Although we are not always sure of the pedigree or background of each animal, those we place are generally well socialized family pets who came to the shelter through no fault of their own. We rescue kittens and puppies as well as adult animals who deserve another chance for a loving home. We do not have a shelter or boarding facility, but instead rely upon foster homes to shelter and nurture our furry friends until a loving forever home is found. Our dogs and cats are all up to date with vaccines, and spayed or neutered. Dogs are microchipped and heartworm negative and cats have tested negative for FIV (if old enough) and FeLV. Young kittens must be adopted in pairs or to homes with other cat(s) to ensure the companionship and socialization they require. Adolescent or adult cats may be adopted solo, if appropriate.

Adopters are asked to complete an application and spend time with their prospective companion animals. All adopters are carefully screened via vet and personal references, and a home visit is conducted. A donation in an amount agreeable to all parties is requested to help defray our expenses (medical, transport, training, pet supplies, etc). We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and are always in need of donations. That donation can be in the form of healthy treats, quality pet food, crates, blankets, new leashes and collars, toys, gift certificates to pet supply stores, kitty litter, etc. - all are gratefully accepted!

Please look at our list of adoptables, and if you don't find one that seems right for you, or if you see one that is already flagged as adopted, please contact us at to let us know what you are looking for; perhaps we can help find the perfect match. We continually rescue new animals and will keep in mind specific requests from good homes.

Zani's Furry Friends is a volunteer organization which receives no funding or sponsorship. We depend on the generosity of those who are willing to donate time, supplies and money--and we are always in need of additional foster homes for either dogs or cats so that we may help free more animals from a dark fate at the shelter. Unfortunately our city's shelters face a continual space problem, and dozens of healthy, adoptable animals lose the race of time daily. If you are interested in opening your home and heart to foster one or more of our rescues, making a donation, or assisting with the myriad of details and chores that is involved in saving these precious lives, please contact us at for more information. We look forward to working with you.
