My story

6/21/22 - Campbell, the Boxer/Terrier Mix is officially a ONE year old. He has come SUCH a long way. We've learned:
1. He's terrified, not aggressive. "Fearful Aggressive." So he is extremely slow to trust and does not enjoy fast movements from strangers.
2. He's a rough player with other dogs, but is thoroughly aware of boundaries. - He's allowed to be around cats if you are close to him. He gets so curious that he's too aggressive for how frail they are. 
3. He likes to tap your legs and lean back to signify he wants to use the bathroom outside 
4. He knows how to play fetch and return the ball. He also knows how to throw the ball at you if you aren't throwing it fast enough! Lol
5. From the tips of his toes to the tip of his nose, he uses his entire body to run. This guy is FAST! Still a very eager puppy, when outdoors he is kept on a leash or a lead if the area isn't already completely fenced in.
6. We are working on staying close while on a leash. But with some consistent reassurance he knows to stay close 
7. He sleeps in his crate with the door closed until about 6:30am. He is not fond of the crate whatsoever.
8. He understands "no" "crate" "sit" "(get) back" "drink" "eat" "pee" "poop" "kiss" "quiet" "paw" "other paw" "here" "down" "up" "no teeth. Gentle!" and snapping your fingers to tell him where to go
9. With sedation, bath time goes well at the stores. 
10. He enjoys Greek Vanilla yogurt with his dry food in the mornings. He is a meat eater but we have discovered a love for finely chopped carrots, strawberries, blueberries and cucumbers.
11. He wants to be outside all day everyday. Except for when it rains. 
12. He will follow you room to room. He loves your attention. 
13. Is very fond of car rides bc he loves the wind.
14. If your phone gets more attention than him, he will knock it out of your hands ‍♀️
15. He's been working with an In-Home Trainor -'Bark Buster' working on his recall, staying off of furniture, staying seated by doors, leash walking, being nice to strangers in the home, and realizing it is the human who is the leader, not Campbell.

Our process may feel invasive, but we have a lifetime commitment to our dogs. We need to be sure they are going to a home where they will be loved and cared for their entire lives. Therefore, we screen our homes very carefully and we thank you in advance for your understanding.

* Please fill out our adoption application on our website. Once submitted, you will receive a confirmation message once we have received your application.

* When you apply, please let your references know that one of our team members will be contacting them via email/phone. Also, please contact your vet's office and authorize them to discuss your pets' health records with the ECCR representative who will be reaching out.

* We will reach out to you for a personal interview, we will also be checking your references: personal and veterinarian - if you currently have or have had a pet in the last 2 years.

* Once we conclude the initial process, we forward your application to the home visit team. They will get in touch with you to schedule a home visit at your earliest convenience. This process usually takes 1-2 weeks.

* Once your home visit report is reviewed and approved, a member of our team will get in touch with you to discuss the breed/mix, size, temperament traits and characteristics exhibited by your new dog; or offer to match you with a different dog that better fits your/your family's needs.

* Once a dog is selected, you will be in touch with the dog's foster to learn more about your new best friend. If the dog is coming on transport, you will then be given the information to go pick up your dog once adoption fee is paid and documents are signed.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

We do not have an actual facility. All of our pets are in foster homes. We can offer meet and greet on adult dogs or older puppies only. Please do not email asking about availability as we get tons of email per day and it may take a few days to get back with you. By then, the pet could be adopted. Please submit an application if you are interested in a pet. Thank you!

More about this rescue

East Coast Canine Rescue is a 501c3 volunteer and 100% foster-based animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing homeless dogs.

ECCR is founded by a team of three dog lovers and advocates dedicated to rescuing and rehoming lost, relinquished and abused animals primarily in the Northeast area and Southern half of the United States. These areas present a large number of animals in need. In collaboration with our veterinarian and shelter partners, the rescue is able to transfer these dogs into foster homes that will care for them until their permanent adoptions. ECCR is able to provide food, medical services, preventative care and love to these forgotten dogs who have no other chance at life.
