Clare

C-uddly, L-oving, A-gile, R-eady for family, E-ager to please

This acronym describes me, CLARE. I’m a 1 year old female hound mix, weighing about 40 lbs. I love adults, children, dogs, and cats. I’m house broken. I love the security of my crate when the family is away. I sleep in my own bed on the floor of my family’s room. I am shy when I meet new people and in new situations. I’m looking for a family with another dog to be my friend and a backyard where we can run and play. I don’t like to walk on a leash but I am learning to tolerate it. I’m an easy dog to have around.

Sox

ADOPTION PENDING CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THIS DOG

Sox is a female Boston Terrier, 4 month old puppy, black & white with a long tail and nose. We rescue the puppy from a breeder because they didn't meet the "standard". Sox, Patriot and Bruin are siblings and just adorable. Very sweet, playful puppies. Sox is the smallest.

Selma

Selma is a bit of a special needs pup - but don't tell her that. A 3-year-old Gordon Setter mix, she is a calm, sweet and gentle soul who loves everyone and everything. She weighs about 50 lbs. and is, of course, totally housebroken. Her only issue is that she has been diagnosed with a swallowing disorder and needs to be fed only soft food or she is likely to spit up. She gets along great with dogs and cats but if she isn't the only dog in her new home, you'd want to find a way to not tempt her with treats she can't have. She loves to relax at home or go for an easy walk. She is not demanding at all, just sweet and loving with big brown and soulful eyes.

Ernie

This little love bug is Ernie. He loves to be close to anyone who comes his way. He came to us from the South under very sad circumstances. His owner passed away and she was our transporter. She was dedicated to saving the lives of our dogs and puppies and always made sure they were brought here safely. Ernie is 8 years old and full of life. He gets along well with the other fosters and loves to play with all of them. He is great with cats too. He is completely house trained and will let you know when he has to go out. Ernie is looking forward to being adopted into a loving and caring home.

Michelle

Michelle is a sweet pup who is enjoying what it is liked to be in a loving home. She is quiet in the house, but now enjoys playing in the yard with her foster siblings. She is great with cats, crate trained and housebroken too! Michelle would do best in a home with another dog and older children.
Thank you Beth Nechamkin for sponsoring my ticket to freedom!

Pepper

Pepper is a 4-5 yr old terrier mix weighing 12 lbs. He is a very sweet dog who loves to cuddle, go on long walks and sleeps thru the night. He is completely housebroken and very comfortable relaxing, playing with toys or just being where you are. He patiently awaits your return to greet you and doesn't fuss when you leave. Having been rescued from a hoarder, he would be more comfortable as an only dog. He is being fostered in an apartment and can adapt to a house or apt as he is adept at elevator or stairs. He likes adults and seems comfortable with children as well. A very companionable dog.

George

George is a very beautiful Husky mix - a sweet and friendly boy.
Thank you Susan Fazio for sponsoring my ticket to freedom!

Jack

Jack is a wonderful, loving companion. Always anxious to please, he is house trained and knows basic commands. He would be happiest as the only pet in the house. Jack gets along with other dogs and we don't know about cats. He is a jagdterrier and has a very strong hunting instinct. He needs to run : so a fenced in dog park would be ideal or a large fenced back yard.. ( Running besides you on a bike will not work) Jack is not a city dog and would find the noise/traffic deafening and upsetting. Because of his strong personality, Jack would do best in a childless home or with children over 12. He is not a retriever and does not like to swim. Jack likes nothing better than snuggling on your lap and having his belly rubbed. He is a quirky 29 lb boy with lots of love to give. He is waiting patiently for the right people to adopt him.

Madison

Madison is a gorgeous chocolate lab mix with the cutest white socks on 3 paws, a white breastplate and a little white tip on the end of her tail. She is about 5 years old and weighs in at 60 pounds. Madison is the sweetest dog. She is calm and lounges around when her foster family needs quiet time but Madison also loves to play fetch. Squeaky balls are her absolute favorite. She also gets so excited for a nice, long walk and she is great on the leash. She adores everyone she meets in or out of the house and at the end of the day she’ll curl up on her special spot and sleep the night away. She is completely housebroken and knows sit, down and stay. Madison should be the only dog in the house. Madison is a truly special dog who would love to show you how wonderful she is!

Patriot

Patriot is a female, 4 month old Boston Terrier puppy. She's light brown brindle with a short tail and long nose. We rescued the puppies from a breeder because they didn't meet the "standard". Sox, Patriot and Bruin are siblings and just adorable. Very sweet, playful puppies. Patriot has long legs and is the tallest.

Pharoah

Pharaoh is a great dog. He is about 2 1/2 yrs old and 70lbs. We believe he is a Great Dane/Greyhound mix. He likes his humans, and plays well with some dogs, mostly female. He knows how to sit, shake, stay and lay down. He is strong on a leash, but with a little training he can be a wonderful pet. He was turned in by his owner when he became too ill to care for him any longer and love to find an active home that will be his forever home.

Patricia

Patricia is a beautiful speckled 1-2 year old Cattle Dog mix. She adores running in the dog park, especially chasing thrown balls. She is good with people & other dogs & completely housebroken. True to her breed, she is a working dog & would love a job to do. She would probably be great in agility classes! Although she is good with other dogs, she would be best as an only dog and in a household without cats.

Bo

Bo doesn't know football or baseball, but he does know how to be a great friend! He likes cats, dogs, people - you name it. He's friendly, house trained and knows his basic commands. He is a little strong on the leash when walking. Bo came to Pet Rescue after his human mom passed away - she was a dedicated transport driver, literally saving thousands of dogs from euthanasia in the South. Many of those dogs came to Pet Rescue and we are committed to finding Bo the most perfect home. He's 8 years old, but he has the spirit of a young dog. In his foster home, he sleeps at night in a dog bed and is not crated when the people go out. He's living with two other Pet Rescue dogs - both a male and a female. And Bo is such a good sport, he lets the little 15 lb. dog jump on him all day. Bo is a big old mush-ball. If you want easy and lovable, Bo's your man.

Kensy

Kensy is a gorgeous Beagle mix, about 2 years old and weighs about 25 lbs. She is housebroken (and crate trained). Kensy is a bit timid, but once she warms up to you, she is a big coach potato, loves to run and play. She's very sweet and loves to cuddle up with her foster mom every chance she gets. Kensy is friendly with others dogs and loves to play with lots of toys. She is very active and needs a home with a fenced in yard - and another dog to play with would be great. She also rides well in the car.

Shorty

Shorty is a sweet and playful mixed-breed terrier, who has had to deal with some special “challenges.” Abandoned as a puppy, she spent the first two years of her life in a cage and was passed around for much of the next three. Because of an untreated ear infection, she is now completely deaf and also takes medication for a skin allergy. Despite it all, she is the sweetest, most gentle and affectionate dog you will ever meet. As is the case with many deaf dogs, she likes to be in constant close proximity with her owner when inside the home. And although Shorty is not an incessant barker, she sometimes barks in frustration and would not be an ideal apartment dweller. A home with another dog to play with or a person who is home a lot would be perfect. Shorty has never been handled as a deaf dog, but she could benefit from someone who is interested in understanding how deafness is experienced by dogs, and who could learn then teach her a few simple signs. Shorty is cuddly and loves adults, children and other dogs. She is fine with cats too. She may sometimes bark at someone passing by, but once she is familiar with an environment that behavior stops. She enjoys brisk walks on the leash and is very responsive.

Ellie

Ellie is a gorgeous, sweet 1 year old Lab/Hound Mix. She is 45 Lbs. She is housebroken and knows basic commands. This goofy girl is lively and playful and will make you smile. She is one of those happy go lucky girls. She is not great with some dogs on the leash, but once she warms up to them, she loves other dogs. Since she still has a lot of puppy energy, she would be better off in an adult home or a home with older children. She rides well in the car, too.

Sally

Sally is an adorable female chihuhua mix. She is a cutie and on the shy side at first. Although shy, her feisty nature shows once she gets acclimated. She is about 12 pounds and enjoys lots of exercise. She does walk on the leash pretty well. Her foster mom takes her and her big lab/mix foster brother hiking or to the golf course every day and she lives for this. She adores her foster brother and follows him everywhere. She is afraid of large groups of dogs and a bit skittish around other people initially, but not at all aggressive. She is totally housebroken. It has been wonderful to see her come out of her shell. She has such a cute way about her. She loves to be with her foster Family at meals, watching TV and she is a cuddler. Her foster mom takes her in the car very often and she is great, loves looking out the window. She will make a loyal, loving and very smart companion for life.

Fanny

Fanny is a sweet little girl. She is about 7 months old and very sweet and gentle. She loves people and is great with other dogs. She is a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix and will stay on the small side. She is only around 20 lbs now. We would suggest a home without cats since she will probably chase them.

Bradley

Bradley is an adorable Pekinese mix, approximately 7 years old and about 15 lbs. He has been living in a foster home with 2 other dogs. He is blind and needs time to adjust to new people and environments. He gets scared easily by loud noises and as a defense mechanism, will growl and bark. Bradley prefers an adult only home and could benefit from another calm dog to follow. Bradley is waiting to start his new life in his forever home. Could it be you?

Freddy

Freddy is a handsome boy. He is about 7 months old and very sweet and gentle. He loves people and is great with other dogs, but can be shy at first. He is a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix and will grow into a real beauty. We would suggest a home without cats since he will probably chase them.

Prada

Prada is such a cute and sweet petite beagle. She is just beginning to blossom in her foster home. She gets along with all other dogs and loves to play with them in the yard. She shares her toys and treats willingly. Prada walks well on a leash. She is not a "barky" girl but does let us know when there is some one at the door. She sleeps all night on her own bed and seems to be housebroken. Prada would love a gentle family who will take the time to help her come out of her shell and become the great dog she was meant to be. Due to her shy nature, we are not recommending she go to a home with small children, she will need a securely fenced yard and another calm dog would be ideal.

Ryleigh

Ryleigh is the sweetest, and most gentle lady. She is a 12 pound chihuahua around 8 years old. Ryleigh was used as a breeding dog and then discarded. Now in a loving home she just loves to be held, watch a little TV and be pampered. Ryeleigh gets along with all the other critters in her foster home although she is quite happy being with the adults who care for her. She would love a home where she will be safe and loved. She is a really good leash walker and loves her walks, but overall she is a quiet dog that is not very high energy. She adapts easily to change and just goes with the flow. She is a real love!

Duncan is a Pekingese / Poodle (peke-a-poo) and too cute for words - adorable, 8 lbs. and one year old (he's smaller than his pictures). He loves being with people, other dogs (he's a tough little guy) and cats. Duncan loves car rides and walks well on a leash. He is so sweet and loves to cuddle, super smart and learns quickly, he would make someone a wonderful companion.

Blaine

Blaine is a gorgeous 1 year old male Husky Mix. He loves to chew on his bone and play in the yard with his toys. He is eager to please and loves all humans he comes in contact with. He is a bit strong, so we recommend he go with older children.

She is good at walking on a leash and is learning commands. She loves to play with her toys and will let the other fosters dogs play with them too. Rebecca gets along well with cats. I love the way she expresses herself when she looks at me with her soulful eyes. She is a lovely girl and will be enjoyed by anyone who will adopt her.

Mindy

Hi - I'm Mindy! I am the one of the sweetest, most loving and gentle dogs you will ever meet. My foster mom absolutely adores me and tells me I'm one of the easiest foster dogs she has ever had. I am housebroken and get along well with other dogs and all humans - young and old. I really enjoy being outside and taking walks but would prefer to be a "suburb dog" and to have a family that is home with me a lot since I just love to be loved. I have dry eye which is not uncommon, but I am such a good girl when I get my eye medicine twice a day. I sleep beautifully during the night cuddled up on my foster sister's bed along with my furry foster brother.

Joli

Joli is an adorable female Pomeranian. She is about 3 years old and around 8 lbs and a little shy. She is very affectionate and will probably be happiest in a quiet home with somebody that can help her come out of her shell. She is an adorable little girl with lots of love to give. She is house broken too. Once she starts cuddling with you, she won't stop. She has so much love to give and has always been very friendly towards everyone, she just gets nervous and we do not feel she should be in a home with children.

Foster a Dog!

Thinking of adopting but not sure you are ready for the commitment? Want to save a life and be rewarded in wagging tails and kisses? Try fostering and become a part of Westchester Magazine's Best Animal Rescue Group 2008.

Pet Rescue does not have a shelter and relies entirely on the generosity of foster homes to care for our dogs. The number of foster homes we have dictates the number of dogs we can save. There are always more waiting for rescue.

The average foster lasts just a couple of weeks and all dogs are screened for health and temperament. We provide basic supplies, veterinary care, and guidance. You provide love, training and a home. It is the care and attention given by foster families which allow Pet Rescue to expertly match our dogs with prospective families.

If you live in Westchester or Southern Fairfield counties and would be willing to care for a foster dog, please submit an application. Fostering is a fun and immensely rewarding experience! Click here to see how much love you get from being a foster parent!

He is sure to put a smile on your face and will make a wonderful companion for a lucky someone!

Dupree

Dupree is a handsome Lab mix boy, about 2 years old. He has a typical happy Lab personality with the most adorable Basset legs. He sleeps in a crate has a cushion he rests on in the living room, or on the rug. He is very smart and is easily trained...he sits, lays down, rolls over, sits and stays. Dupree needs to go to a home with no small children. He needs to be an only dog since he does not get along with other dogs. Otherwise, he is a perfect boy.

Snoopy

Snoopy is a 2 yr old Chihuahua mix. His foster mom said he is a very easy, well-behaved dog. He needs a few minutes to warm up to new people and sometimes barks while he is getting settled, but once he knows you he loves to be held and has no problem being toted around! He follows his foster mom around the house. He is housebroken and he sleeps peacefully through the night in his crate and is just looking for his forever person. He enjoys his trips in the car with his foster mommy and accompanies her to work most days. He gets along with other small dogs and LOVES to play with his squeaky toys! Due to his size he should not go to a home with young children.
