Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Gideon (GA) is a neutered male Shih Tzu mix rescued in Georgia. Our veterinary partner estimates that Gideon is 10 years old at the time of intake in February 2022.  Gideon is good with people who respect his space and he's good with other dogs, but cats--not so much!  He is an adorable, albeit grumpy, senior boy who lives life on his own terms--he will let you know when you are violating his person or his space.  He doesn't like cats and he doesn't like to be picked up; he likes to have his back rubbed, but if you hit the wrong spot, watch out!  Gideon will do best in a home with snarky dog experience, where he can be independent, and if there are children they should be older and capable of respecting Gideon and his space.  This guy's rough life has shaped him, and he deserves to spend the rest of his years in a loving, forever home with his special person who understands him and lets Gideon be Gideon.  If you are Gideon's special person, please apply online to adopt Gideon (GA) at www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org.      RDR's adoption fees include the cost of spay/neuter/microchip at an RDR-approved facility, whether completed before adoption or if deferred because the pet is too young or has a medical issue.  All pets are also current on age-appropriate vaccines at the time of adoption. 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.

Story
Hi, my name is Chewy and I am a senior Shih Tzu, almost 9 years old, 13 lbs and I have a sweet disposition and a little underbite. I am missing a few teeth here and there, but it’s not a problem when I’m eating my yummy kibble mixed with some canned food. I am friendly and get along great with people and other dogs, and although I am no longer playful with my doggy friends, I enjoy their company. I am more of a lap dog, loving pets and rubs, and when not in your lap I’ll follow you everywhere or curl up for a nap on a chair or doggy bed. I’m well-behaved and rarely bark and if you don't notice me waiting by the door to go out and do my business, I am an expert using a potty pad. I’m not a fan of being picked up unless you do it gently, and I’m not a fan of going for long walks, especially in the Texas heat. I was a stray dog in San Antonio in 2017 and wound up at the dog pound. I was adopted locally and lived a nice life until last month when my owner surrendered me back to the dog pound. I couldn't believe it, especially after I was a good and faithful boy for so many years, but I guess I should be grateful they didn't just put me out on the street or throw me out of a truck like many older dogs around here. The good news is, that I hear many wonderful families on the East Coast would be happy to have a sweet little dog like me, so I can't wait to meet them and get my life started again. Inquire about me today and bring me home! * 4 Little Paws is based in CT. We adopt in many different states along the East Coast. Transport costs are included in the adoption fee. If you are located outside the states we typically adopt to, we have options to get the dog of your dreams to your location.

Nugget has recently turned 1 years old on June 17th. He needs a home where he can be very active and have a patient owner. He is very easily trained and usually can learn new things within a week . Nugget is trained to not eat out of his bowl until you give him a command word which is “go” . Sometimes he still waits lol just have to nudge to bowl to him a little . He can pee and poop on a weewee pad ( although he prefers to go on walks he loooovessss outside ) all you have to do is show him where the weewee pad is. He doesn’t cry in a cage and won’t fight you to go in . He is not aggressive towards other cats although cats do find him ver annoying he just always wants to play lol. Since he is a baby still , he is a little scared of dogs ( especially big ones) and just needs a few minutes to warm up to them but other wise very friendly. He does pee a little more often then a regular dog which is why I still use weewee pads with him ( he has no condition he’s just a little different )

These pups are in New York, New York too!

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Pepper (AL) is a male Lhasa Apso mix rescued in Alabama. Our veterinary partner estimates that Pepper is 3 years old at the time of intake in October 2023. Pepper is good with adults and other dogs. This little guy was brought into rescue in a neglected and abused condition. His fur was incredibly matted and soaked in urine. We don’t know how long Pepper suffered in that painful condition, but we’re only looking forward to Pepper’s happy future. Pepper has been shaved down and all of the mats removed. He is a sweet boy but understandably shaken and scared at what his life has been and unsure of what the future holds for him. He’s now pain free and on the path to recovery, but we recommend a quiet home without small children as Pepper needs some space that small children cannot give him. If you are the Salt to this Pepper, please apply online to adopt Pepper (AL) at www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org.  RDR's adoption fees include the cost of spay/neuter/microchip at an RDR-approved facility, whether completed before adoption or if deferred because the pet is too young or has a medical issue.  All pets are also current on age-appropriate vaccines at the time of adoption.
