Story
Meet Wilbert. Wilbert is a 2-year-old handsome young pug! He weighs about 19.5 pounds so his little chunk rolls match the typical pug cuteness. Wilbert is a little shy at first but once he picks his person he will love them for life! Wilbert could use some help still with potty training and on a leash to make walks fun and exciting. He does well with children, cats, and other dogs. Wilbert's favorite thing to do is snuggle with his person for naps and bedtime! Wilbert had blood work at his recent vet visit. Interested in becoming a forever home for Wilbert? Fill out our online adoption application: http://www.friendswithfourpaws.org/adoption-form.html This is the first step in our process, and we don't go any further without an application. Find more adoptable pets, news and information on Instagram @friendswithfourpaws or our Facebook page Friends with Four Paws. We put a lot of time and energy into processing our adoptions to find our babies the best fit home for them and you. Please do not submit an application if you are not serious about adopting Wilbert. We are so excited to work with you to find you a new forever friend, and Wilbert the perfect forever home, and appreciate you working with us. For immediate consideration, please attach your application to the initial inquiry to help us expedite the process. Our adoption fee is $525. This includes their spay/neuter surgery, full (age appropriate) vaccinations, microchip insertion and registration, deworming, heartworm testing and prevention, flea and tick prevention and travel expenses. All of our dogs are rescued from local shelters and the general public. Each dog is then placed in a foster home where he/she is kept for quarantine, to ensure if the dog gets sick it can receive proper treatment. We have foster homes in the NJ/NY area waiting to receive their fosters. Once an animal has received an application or there's an adopter interested, we make arrangements for transport. If a dog is already in foster care in NYC/NJ, an adopter will be put in touch with the foster home AFTER an application is being processed. Thank you in advance for your patience with our process and for making adoption YOUR option!

Story
Meet Arlo! This handsome little squish face Pug is 4 years old and weighs 17 pounds. Arlo is as fun as he is cute! He loves to play and will never turn down a chance to be the center of attention. He lights up every room he is in and is great with all humans and dogs big and small. He even does great with the cats! Arlo does well in a crate but could still use some work on potty training while in the crate and in the house, and could use a little more work on leash to make walks fun and exciting. Arlo would be such a wonderful addition to any home! Arlo had a dental cleaning and bloodwork at his recent vet visit. Interested in becoming a forever home for Arlo? For immediate consideration, please fill out our online adoption application: http://www.friendswithfourpaws.org/adoption-form.html This is the first step in our process, and we DO NOT go any further without an application. If there are multiple dogs that you are interested in, please fill out an application for each dog. This does not include bonded pairs, one application will be fine. We have different adoption coordinators working with different dogs, and your application may be missed if you only apply once. Find more adoptable pets, news and information on Instagram @friendswithfourpaws or our Facebook page Friends with Four Paws .

Story
Meet the squishy Diddy! Diddy is a 7 year old, 28lbs puggle mix from the Bronx. We received Diddy as a diverted intake from the local ACC in order to prevent him from going into the overcrowded shelter system.  Diddy unfortunately has dealt with a lot in the last couple years for our knowledge. Before coming to us we know he was passed around to multiple homes and people. Due to that, Diddy can be a bit of a nervous nelly. Hes got a lot of energy but hasn’t had much routine or structure in his life so he doesn’t know where to put.  For the last several weeks Diddy has been brushing up on his good boy skills with our trainer! We have learned Diddy is such a lover boy when his needs are properly met. He enjoys frequent games of tug & fetch with his person, as well as long walks exploring the neighborhood. He’s incredibly food motivated, as most pug mixes are, which makes his training that much easier! He enjoys working for his meals throughout the day whether on walks or learning some basic obedience.  Diddy can be great with other dogs with some management. He’s quite pushy with others and may not understand when other dogs want a break from playing with him. He’s looking for an owner who is aware or willing to learn how to read dog body language and intervene if Diddy is getting a little too excited with his canine friends.  Diddy has been trained using balanced methods and has thrived. His new owner will get two free training sessions to help acclimate him to his new environment. We strongly believe Diddy will be the type of dog to need few months of decompression and structure as he’s experienced so much uncertainty in his life he can be an anxious boy. While not a requirement, we do think Diddy would be more comfortable in a quieter neighborhood with an active family. Diddy is up to date on vaccines and prevention. He is scheduled for neuter on 4/24. Should he be adopted before this date his adopters will need to bring him to and from the appointment (2455 McDonald Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11223). To apply for Diddy, visit our website (www.waggytailrescue.org) for an adoption application. It is important to fill out an application as soon as possible for consideration, and we require a complete application for you to meet an animal. We are currently unable to respond to general email inquiries as an all-volunteer run rescue. If the animal is on our website, they are still available. Waggytail Rescue CANNOT guarantee the exact age of any adoptable dog, or final size of any of our adoptable puppies. We rely on the information provided to us by veterinarians, shelters, owner surrenders and other circumstances bringing the dog into our rescue. Adoptions: adopt@waggytailrescue.org ##1972553##

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Dawson (GA) is a male Pug mix estimated to be 2 years old at the time of intake in January 2024. Dawson is up to date on core vaccines and is microchipped. He will be neutered before placement in his forever home unless there is a medical reason why it has not yet been completed (in which case RDR NYC will work with the adopter to ensure this is done at the appropriate time). Dawson is  totally, ridiculously adorable, even with ears that are perhaps too small for his head! He adores people, including kids. Dawson is super food motivated, and is p layful but not super high energy. He do es fine with dogs (but this little dude really wants his people). He has some foster cat siblings, and he has shown to be cat-curious, but not aggressive. Dawson sleeps through the night in his crate and does not seem to be a chewer. He literally becomes boneless when you give him belly rubs! Dawson is easily corrected and redirected when being naughty, such as engaging in garbage diving. Some Dawson quirks: he seems to dislike the sound of a piano and will howl to drown out the sound! Some hilarious sounds come of this guy's little body. And he thinks he's a retriever. If you would like this frien dly, outgoing, sweet, goofy boy to join your family, please apply online to adopt Dawson (GA) at www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org.  Given technical constraints on this database, this pet's location may not be as listed here. We can, however, provide transport support for pets in foster at a considerable distance from the adopter.
