Charlie- Lap dog needs lap Lhasa Apso 11 years Charlie was surrendered to our vets office when his human passed away and the family didn’t want him. They had actually asked for him to be euthanized and the vet refused. Good vet! We were asked to take him in so he came to us. That was over a year ago. Charlie was adopted pretty quickly by an older woman who contacted us recently that she was in failing health and could no longer care for him. When we went to pick him up we didn’t even know he was the same pup. He had tripled in size and was ungroomed to a point where he needed a complete shave down. Thank goodness we got him back. He needed us more than when he originally arrived. Poor Charlie ☹ He was promptly started on a diet and had a spa day and feels so much better already! His skin was raw as he does have some grain allergies but is much better now and he has a cataract in his right eye but it doesn’t stop him for an instant. He loves going for walkies and loves his dinners! He also loves people. Our little chunky monkey is now in search of a real furever home and Lhasa experience is definitely a requirement. Charlie currently is weighing in at about 19lbs. He is fully vetted and microchipped. He’s got the cutest toof aka fang that sticks out and is fine on his diet. We feel that Charlie would do best in a quiet home with a nice lap for him to hang with. Because he needs regular grooming and vetting if he has a skin flareup we will be  checking financial capability for anyone interested in adopting him. Charlie barks at you when he needs to go out and also when dinner is being prepared. Charlie is located in Freeport NY His adoption fee is $350 Please go to our website www.ourbestfriendsrescue.org to complete an application show less

Matrix came to the rescue with his brofurs Deezle and Neezle and his sisfur Geezle. They were surrendered to the rescue from a puppy mill in Pennsylvania that said they were too old to sell. These are some of the sweetest puppies we've ever met.  Initially these guys were very nervous around humans, but giving them lots of delicious pup treats has started to win them over. They are still shy but once they have homes of their own they will definitely bond to their hoomans.  These are very playful pups and are almost 5 months old. They are happy all the time and adore toys and running around so they would be an excellent choice for an active family.  They are good with all dogs but have not been cat tested although we suspect they would chase them to play with them. They do jump on people a lot so children over 9 or kids that won't get upset until the puppy learns more manners.  The puppies will be current on vaccinations and the adopters will be responsible for spaying or neutering them when they reach the appropriate age. We feel this will be at 12 to 18 months for proper growth and to lower the instance of cancer in dogs.  These puppies are located in Freeport NY Their adoption fee is $300 Please go to our website www.ourbestfriendsrescue.org to complete an application show less

Nala is a beautiful girl that was left at our vets office and has been there for over a year. She is such a sweet girl and didn't deserve to get dumped by her former people. Nala is 9 years old but in excellent health. She has so many years of life and so much joy to give to a family of her very own. Nala's only issue is that she absolutely must be an only pet!! We cannot stress this enough! She has a very high prey drive and does not do well with any animals. This means all animals. Cats, dogs, hamsters, gerbils, ferrets, birds, well you get the idea. This precious sweet girl has been living in the managers office at the vet practice and on holidays is there all by herself. Can you imagine not having a home of your own for the holidays? While all the other pups are opening their presents and enjoying their stockings, while they are getting goodies from the leftovers of the holiday feasts she is alone in the office. Please don't get us wrong, she is adored by the entire staff. She spends her days getting spoiled and pampered. But the nights are long and lonely and the holidays are the same. All we wish is for her to have her very own feast and her very own presents. Somewhere she will be safe and loved for the rest of her days. Nala is what's considered a Pocket Pittie. She is around 32lbs but is probably in need of a little diet because everyone spoils her with cookies. If you are interested in giving this magnificent angel her perfect home please email us for an adoption application at ourbestfriendsrescue@gmail.com Nala is located in Sayville NY She is fully vetted and will have her teeth cleaned before she leaves to go home. She is spayed, housebroken and microchipped show less

Rick aka Rick the Dick Corgi – 8 yrs 28 lbs. Rick is a handsome and interesting red and white corgi. He was surrendered by his former family after he expressed a dislike for the new child in the house. We first met Rick the day he was dropped off by his Mom and Dad. They adored him and knew if he went anywhere else he wouldn’t have survived. Rick came out of their truck with a basket muzzle on and came furiously at his foster mom. Thank Dog for muzzles!!!!! Rick’s first impression was his survival skill. He did not like strangers. He was protective of his people and their car. He was protective of everything. His defense was to lash out at anything that threatened him in his mind. We don’t know why many corgis have this defense mechanism but we believe it’s from non-selective breeding in puppy mills and by some breeders as well. Many of them are too far gone to be adopted by the time they come into rescue but we felt that Rick was not that bad. In order to keep any adopter safe just in case, we had a dental done to remove his front teeth so the risk of a bit with anything but a molar is minimal. Rick still loves his crunchy food and enjoys a good bully stick in his crate. He enjoys being allowed in his person’s bed to sleep and is very good at night. We came to this realization with great trepidation when he jumped in the bed the first night he arrived. LOL Do you have room in your heart to open your home to a pup like him and have the patience to let him be him? Is your home calm and peaceful? Rick does prefer being the only pup if possible but does okay with female dogs if there is one in residence already. Rick has been fully vetted and microchipped.                                                                He is located in Freeport NY-His adoption fee is $400                                            Please go to our website at www.ourbestfriendsrescue.org to complete an application. show less

Rosie aka Magenta aka RoMa Papillon Dachshund mix 10 years RoMa is a wonderful older girl who was abandoned and ended up in a shelter. Her humans were contacted but never came to get her from the shelter in Texas. As a senior she was destined for euthanasia. This was not an option as far as we were concerned. She weighs in a t around 14lbs. RoMa is a very scared girl in her foster home, and it took days to get her to trust her foster mom just a little. She is in need of a dental cleaning and extractions, and this will be done as soon as we can get her in to the vet. She will also be spayed if she isn’t already at that time. We see from her actions with other dogs that she prefers to be left to herself as far as they go. She probably had to fend for her food and because of that she can get nasty with the other dogs at dinnertime. We are working on her housebreaking, and she is doing well so far. She doesn’t play yet but we don’t want to push her too much as she is nervous enough already. In her we see a puppo that is craving love but is fearful that she will get in trouble. This is something we see on a pretty regular basis in the strays that we get. In a home of her own she will blossom into a new girl and will learn what love and being a house pup is all about. RoMa is located in Freeport NY Her adoption fee is $450 Please go to our website www.ourbestfriendsrescue.org to complete an adoption application show less

Sasha aka Sasha the Impaler Schnauzer Poodle aka Schnoodle 3 years Sasha came into the rescue when a friend was asked to help out someone. She was completely out of control and not friendly at all. Sasha’s previous family had done nothing to help her become a balanced dog. She was highly reactive to any quick motion, fearful of the leash, possessive of her crate, and a host of other issues. Who knows what happened to this poor girl. All we can surmise is that she wasn’t treated kindly and she didn’t learn trust from them. Sasha has been with her foster for a few months and has become a different dog. While she still stays to herself at times, she loves a good belly rub and to lay on the couch near her foster mom. A long way from the dog that would give you a good nip if you moved too quickly or ran through the room. Trust me, I know. But that has gone by the wayside and now she is a really good girl. It’s actually pretty typical of the bad behaviors for the mix of breeds that she is. Sasha loves her bed, she doesn’t get crated at the fosters house because of her reactivity and the bad memories. She would do best in a calm and quiet home with an older person. Someone who has dealt with these behaviors before. She needs a slow approach to learn to trust someone new. She will continue to blossom in the correct home. Sasha likes most other dogs. We have no idea how she would react to cats and have no way to test her. Because of her past we will not place her in a home with little children. Sasha is located in Freeport NY Her adoption fee is $500 Please go to our website www.ourbestfriendsrescue.org to complete an application for this diamond in the rough. show less
