Story
Are you looking for a smart, eager to learn, affectionate big lap dog!? Look no further. Rocky is your guy! At 3 years old and 60 lbs, this guy thinks he is still a puppy. Rocky is incredibly smart and knows several unique commands such as spin around & roll over, but he knows the basics, too, like Sit, Down, Stay, Eat & Speak. Rocky likes other dogs and would probably benefit from living with one as he can be a little insecure at times. He loves his friends and enjoys meeting new ones at the park or the vet. He does however like to protect his home so he prefers a more controlled introduction to new people for that. He has also lived with older children (6 & 12 years old) and did well with them. Rocky sleeps in his crate quietly all night. And he's smart enough to let you know when he needs to use the outdoor restroom by whining. He's good in the yard & doesn't try to jump the fence - he does love to play ball, too. He's young so he would love to have a home where he'd get exercised. Rocky was adopted as a puppy but unfortunately is now back with Eleventh Hour because he was able to escape from his owner one too many times for their liking.  If you are interested in Rocky, visit EHRDOGS.ORG and fill out an application & ask for him by name, ROCKY!February 21, 2024, 12:36 am

Story
Lucy is a beautiful little Boxer mix girl, about 10 years old and 40 lbs, who loves going for walks and playing outdoors.  She’s had a fair amount of training and knows her basic commands, but as with any dog, she could use an owner who will keep up her training. Lucy is cautious upon meeting new people but once she trusts you, her loving side shines through.  She has a strong personality that requires an experienced dog owner. Lucy loves to go for rides in the car, walks at the park, swimming, playing with her toys, and spending time with her favorite volunteers. She has spent far too long waiting for her forever family to come along (almost 7 years in the shelter...). Adopters are often turned off by the fact that she will require multiple meets to learn its ok to trust you. Will anybody take the time to love Lucy..? If you’d be interested in meeting Lucy, please fill out an application and be sure to mention her name!February 21, 2024, 12:36 am

Goldie is an adorable 3 year old sweet heart. After her owner recently realized they were not a good match, she was unfortunately returned to our care. Goldie is very confused and upset at our kennels. She doesnt understand where she is yet. She is looking for a new home with a family who will shower her with love! Goldie's endearing shyness is her hallmark. She absolutely loves those who she is close with! Other dogs can be a bit scary for her at times but she has met dogs and done fine with some. She would make a great companion for an active household!    February 21, 2024, 12:36 am

Story
Violet Beauregarde Lonestar is 5 years old and 60 lbs and was saved from a Texas shelter with minutes to spare!  She has a bunch of energy so would benefit from an active owner. Violet is good with dogs but prefers if the other pooch knows some manners! She does great in the car and is an excellent walker, even likes to go running. Although this beautiful girl is sweet and cuddly, she can tend to get over excited at times - so, children should be older/considerate.  She needs an owner who will provide her with rules and has some dog experience. Violet is a sweet happy girl who would like a quiet home to live in with not a lot of visitors. She may need to be put away when guests come over as she can become a bit protective of her people and home!  If you would like to meet this pretty girl, fill out a canine application and don’t forget to mention VIOLET BEAUREGARDE LONESTAR!!February 21, 2024, 12:36 am

Leia is a 4 year old stunning brown and white boxer mix, with an adorable underbite! She loves other dogs and would do well living with one who has no issues sharing toys. Leia enjoys making new human friends after she gets over her shy side! She is actually a dog who prefers not to go on long walks, though she loves zoomies, in or outdoors. Otherwise, as long as she gets mental stimulation, she is good to go. Leia is very sweet and affectionate, she likes to give kisses and settle for a nap near her human.  She listens well and is very food motivated and intelligent; with a bit of a mischievous side when it comes to food so best to store all food out of her reach.  She knows "sit, down, stay, and paw" commands.  She walks well on a leash and enjoys car rides.  This adorable gal is finding herself back with Eleventh Hour Rescue in search of her perfect home- could that be you?February 21, 2024, 12:36 am

Story
Kobe is a 2 year old Boxer mix who was found as a stray by some good samaritans who took him in and tried to locate his family.  Once Kobe's family was identified, it was determined that they were not committed to keeping him safe and sound, and agreed to let them find Kobe a new home that could take better care of him.  Kobe is now up for adoption and looking for a perfect family that is willing to spend sufficient time with him.  Kobe has some separation anxiety as a result of neglect by his previous owner. Right now, he can be a bit destructive if left alone/unattended only because he is just now learning it’s ok to be alone, someone will be back, you are NOT being abandoned.  We’ve found that when he has a human nearby and access to toys that are okay for him to chew, he's amazing at switching between keeping himself busy with his toys and then taking a nap near his human(s).  He loves chew toys and is very food motivated. Kobe also loves blankets, cuddles, and naps with his humans. We have not witnessed any signs of aggression in Kobe. While Kobe is eager for food, Kobe has not displayed any signs of food aggression or aggression or resource guarding with toys and treats. He's a smart boy that is very trainable. He knows “sit” and “down,” although he does best when hand signals are paired with the verbal commands. We've slowly progressed from not just getting Kobe to sit before eating, but to also getting him to wait to be released to eat. I also think if someone was interested, he'd be great at agility training and/or dock jumping.  Kobe seems to be fine with other dogs and all people.  If you're interested in meeting Kobe, please fill out an application by visiting our website www.ehrdogs.org!

Story
WISE is entirely volunteer-run and all of the donations made to our rescue go directly back to the animals in our care. By partnering with veterinary practices that support our work, we are able to save animals’ lives and restore them back to health. While some animals only need standard care, others require more extensive veterinary or behavioral care. Regardless of which dog you are applying for, we are looking for adopters to support our program with a minimum donation of $850. The donation may or may not be directly applied to care of the dog you're adopting but rather goes toward supporting all of the dogs in the rescue. We appreciate the understanding of our potential adopters. Please keep this in mind prior to applying. Name: Claressa Breed: Boxer Age: 3 years old Gender: Female Why did she come to WISE? Claressa was used for breeding at a puppy mill for her whole life. As soon as she was invaluable to their 'breeding program', the mill was going to kill her. WISE was not going to let that happen and gave this girl a second chance! Home Recommendation: Claressa is a sweet girl who would love a family who will shower her with affection! She has never been in a home before so she will need a patient family to teach her all the good things in life. She is an easy-going gal, ready for an adventure or to snuggle up on the couch! Personality: Claressa's story makes her tough like the boxer, but she really is a mush who just wants to be loved! Once she is comfortable with you, she will show her goofy, fun-loving side! She loves to play outside in the yard and romp around with toys in her mouth! She enjoys being pet and hanging out in your company. Kids: Above the age of 10 Dogs: Yes! She would do well with another confident dog Cats: Unknown Crate Trained: Going well! House Trained: She is learning quickly and doing great! Training: Since Claressa has not had an easy journey, she is discovering what all the good things are in life! She is practicing how to walk on a leash and go up and down stairs. She will need a family who will continue to socialize her and build up her confidence

Allow us to introduce to you our shelter sweetheart, Honeybuns! Honeybuns name says it all! She is an absolute sweetheart to her core! Once we get her on leash, she is quick to do her business and begin exploring. On walks Honeybuns is great on leash and generally stays close to you. She knows some commands such as "sit" and "paw" and is eager to show you, of course for a treat. Which she takes ever so gently. Honeybuns is looking to snuggle up with you on the couch this season. While Honeybuns is a lover, she would prefer a home without younger children and other dogs at this time.

Story
I'm making the heartbreaking decision to rehome my baby, Pepper. Pepper is a 5 year old, female, pit bull terrier mix. I adopted her when she was 2-3 months old from Eleventh Hour Rescue. Pepper is a great dog and has never-ending unconditional love to give. She is house-trained, leash-trained and is very intelligent with lots of energy! Pepper knows many commands such as sit, stay, down, heel. When she accomplishes a task, she feels very proud of herself! She loves running in the backyard and going for rides in the car. She loves to cuddle and curl up under the blankets. Pepper loves to go on adventures, but needs a more experienced adopter or trainer to continue to work with her. I'm looking for a home for her that will love her, care for her, and help her live her best life. She would thrive in a home with no other dogs or pets as she is dog reactive. A fenced backyard in a suburban or rural community would be great for her.

Story
Jelly is a 3-year-old Red Nosed Pit BullWe got Jelly when she was just 8 weeks old and quickly realized she was very smart. After a short time, she already knew basic commands and was housebroken thanks to our two other small senior dogs. Jelly is full of energy but is also a snuggle bug who loves to be near people. She absolutely loves everyone she meets. She is also housebroken and knows basic commands. Unfortunately, as Jelly has aged we have noticed she is extremely dog reactive. This has become a huge stressor in our household and for our other two 13-year-old dogs. I want to stress that Jelly has NEVER been aggressive towards humans and has lived with our three children (3, 5, and 9 y/o) her whole life. We've made several attempts to socialize her and intervene on her dog reactivity and resource guarding with little success. Thus, we've made the difficult decision to search for a home that is a better fit for Jelly. Out of fairness for Jelly and our other dogs, she deserves to be in a household she can thrive in. Jelly would be perfect in a home where she is the only dog. She cannot be placed with other animals. If you feel Jelly would be a fit in your home, please reach out to me. I will do my absolute best to answer any questions. This is tough, but we just want the best for her. Jelly is NOT with 11th Hour Rescue but we are helping to network her so that she can find a new home. If you are interested in Jelly, please contact Anthony at 908-644-8099 - Jelly is currently located in South Plainfield, NJ.February 21, 2024, 12:36 am

Meet Rubie (fka Hagrid Clayton)!  Rubie is a very handsome male pittie mix estimated to be about 4 years old and weighs 54 pounds.  He was picked up as a stray and brought to a local animal control facility, where he ended up on the "urgent list" through no fault of his own.  Those who know Rubie say he is a very friendly young boy, who likes all people and dogs he meets. He is a moderate energy boy who is well-mannered as he is house trained & will sleep all night in his crate. Rubie's ideal home would be with one owner or a couple who splits responsibility in caring for him. Check out his video on his webpage to see just how handsome he really is and how much he loves his toys! If you are interested in adopting Rubie, please complete an adoption application at www.ehrdogs.org and ask for him by name.February 21, 2024, 12:36 am
