Story
Kenai was rescued by us as a puppy from Texas. She is 4 years old (DOB 6/11/19). She became a reactive dog around 10 months old despite taking her to puppy classes and desensitization classes as well as socializing her through puppy day care and beyond. When COVID pandemic arrived, we had to move and lost access to the daycare. In our new neighborhood there are many dogs - she has found great dog friends, whom she is always eager to play with. However, certain situtations trigger her anxiety, and in turn, her reactiveness. Dogs that "stare her down" or reactiveness of other dogs will trigger her to raise her hackles and react in turn. Night walks, with low visibility, puts her more on edge. Despite working with a dedicated behaviorist and medication, her unease is clear. At home, and to those she knows, she is absolutely loving, sweet, and gentle (inc. kids/men). No resource issues. She would thrive in a wide open space where there are less distractions, fewer unknown dogs.

Story
Lilly is literally the sweetest, most patient, excited girl! She has always been super patient with our children (even when they were antagonizing her). She loves eating grass, going on long walks, chewing on her toys, licking hands, cuddling, getting tummy rubs, and giving kisses!! She loves to play with other dogs, mostly other girls (behaved boys are ok too as long as they don’t hump, she’s a lady lol). She has always preferred humans over dogs but has never had issues socializing . She has a bestie now who is a pup but Lilly keeps up during play . Lilz is overall a very very sweet dog. Unfortunately we can no longer keep her due to relocating to a place with no yard and limited space. We’d love for her to go to someone active as she has a lot of energy. She can laze around too but will get into mischief if not exercised. Overall she is a great family dog and a great partner and will stay off the furniture unless you allow it. She’s also a quick learner and easy to train

Story
Meet Raven, a delightful, medium-sized sweetheart. Raven is a friendly and playful companion who adores people and other dogs alike. Raven seems to be well-socialized, having lived harmoniously with children, small dogs, and seniors in the past. She is a well-mannered pup who enjoys cuddles, especially belly rubs and head scratches, which make her blissfully plop to the ground. Raven has a gentle temperament and is notably quiet, only expressing herself through low whines. She thrives on daily walks, loves to explore her surroundings, and is always excited to greet new friends on her outings. Raven is looking for a loving new home where she can continue to bring joy and companionship. You can find more pictures of Raven here: https://tinyurl.com/AdoptableRaven

Story
Say hello to sweet Tiger!  Tiger is a very affectionate boy who will be your best friend forever. He is 2 years old, 75 lbs and wants to be the center of someone's world, as he loves people, especially teenagers. He is very treat-motivated and easily trainable.  Tiger is very playful with other dogs.  He could be in a home as an only dog to hog all the attention, or in a very bully savvy home with one other friendly young dog. He did not have the best start in life, so he is a little clumsy when meeting. Nothing that patience and consistency cannot improve. Training and enrichment to help him focus would benefit him greatly as well. He is a curious, intelligent dog. A fenced yard is a must. No cats, as he will chase them.  Tiger really deserves a great forever home!  He is an adorable dog who loves to please people and he's so handsome!  Tiger is fully vaccinated and neutered.  He is in New Jersey (but adoptable anywhere on the east coast) and would love to meet you! If you would like to make Tiger a much loved part of your family, send in an application today! Interested in adopting? Of course you are! Submit an application here! June 21, 2024, 12:10 pm

Story
Lily is a gorgeous specimen of 50 pound year old silvery velvet hippo girl with melt-in-your-mouth chocolate eyes, Lily is a doggie day care rockstar, and has never met a water feature she didn't love! This girl is very smart, affectionate with her people, athletic, playful and curious. Lily is living happily with her foster canine sister; she can take a minute to warm up to new people, but once you are her friend, that's forever. Lily knows her basic commands; she walks well on a lead; she is a dream road trip companion; and she just generally loves being with her people and having adventures (other dogs always welcome!). She is very treat motivated and a joy to train - she is house- and crate-trained and is patient and calm when waiting for meals. Lily plays hard and then curls up on the couch for a nap. She sleeps in her bed but would love to share yours. If you are looking for a loyal bestie, Lily is your girl! Lily is spayed and up-to-date on vaccines.

Story
This lovely lady is dressed and ready in her gorgeous black/brindle coat. Sadie is an approximately 1 year old, 47lb, Staffie mix; with what we are not sure, but we do know that she is 100% adorable. Sadie quickly fit right into her busy foster home with 6 resident pups ranging from 15-110lbs, a kitten and two human teen girls. She loves to play but also enjoys finding a comfy dog bed or couch to rest and catch up on her shows. She enjoys a good meal, will willingly go in her crate and sleep through the night and knows to go outside to use the bathroom. She was previously fostered on a farm. She'd prefer to live in a quieter area as she may be stressed by busier neighborhoods, and she'd love a nice fenced yard to run and play in. She could do well in a household with other confident, dog friendly dog(s) or as an only with appropriate opportunities to socialize with other pups. Sadie is a sweet girl and will be a wonderful addition to a lucky family! Sadie is spayed and up-to-date on vaccines. The adoption fee for this dog is $425 which includes routine vetting and spay/neuter. PetConnect Rescue cannot guarantee the exact breed of any animal in our care.

Hi there, I'm Ridley. I'm still young and full of curiosity. I may be a bit shy at first, but once I get to know you, I promise to be your most loyal friend. I am a compact guy and weigh 26 lbs. I love to sleep in my crate at night, I am housetrained and learning all about leash walking and it is a blast seeing all these new things! I am working on learning the game of fetch! I love cuddles and gentle strokes; they make me feel safe and loved. I may not be the bravest, but I'm the sweetest. My eyes? They're as blue as the summer sky. I'm just a pup looking for a family to share my love with. Why adopt me? Well, I promise to fill your life with joy, laughter, and unconditional love. I would do best with another confident pup in the home to show me meeting new people is not so scary or someone who is home a majority of the day to help me with my training. I would also love a yard to run around in! I'll be your best friend, your confidant, your partner in crime. With me, every day will be an adventure. Will you be my forever family? Ridley is neutered and up-to-date on vaccines. The adoption fee for this dog is $425 which includes routine vetting and spay/neuter.
