Darlin’ - a term of endearment….so deserved for this sweet 60 lb, 8 year old girl. Surrendered to our care when her person lost their home, Darlin' lost everything too – her person, her home, her safety. She’s an amazing dog who is not only housetrained, she heads to the edge of the sidewalk to take care of her business. She’s friendly to all people, loves kids, loves baths (and will jump into the tub on her own), sleeps on her own bed but will sometimes sneak onto her person’s bed in the middle of the night, loves to jump and give kisses, loves belly rubs, and knows her basic commands. She is also well-behaved when left home alone while her foster mom is at work. She is not a fan of other dogs or cats so she needs to be an only pet. She does pull on the leash moderately and would benefit from leash training or from home with a fenced yard. "Darlin’ is a gorgeous, sweet, playful, snuggly, takes treats gently, has a great smile and gorgeous eyes, is beautifully groomed, loves playing with her plush toys, and poses for photos like a pro,” says her foster mom. “Seriously, if you are still reading this and not rushing over to meet her, you are missing out on a gem. But don’t just take my word for it...see for yourself." In fact, the only reason Darlin’s foster mom is giving her up is because she works multiple jobs and is out of the home for many hours at a time. She would love to see Darlin’ have a family where she gets all the attention she deserves and more physical activity than she can provide. Darlin is spayed, up to date on shots, and microchipped. This happy, healthy, darling girl Darlin’ is ready to meet you!

Meet Hudson 3 years old 55 lbs Milford, CT Hudson came into the shelter in New York City as a stray who was brought in by the police. He endeared himself to the volunteers during the limited time he was able to spend with them, but he had extreme difficulty coping with the stress of the shelter environment and being in a kennel. We can't say for certain what occurred in his previous life to cause him such anxiety and fear of being "behind bars", but we think he may have been teased and/or tormented while being locked up in a cage or other small area. One thing we do know.... he definitely wasn't treated very well. Humans have let this boy down big time. But according to the volunteers at the shelter, once he got to see the same faces over and over and spend time with them, they found Hudson to be very sweet and affection-seeking, often wanting to climb into their laps and soak up just that short time of being cuddled and loved. They also said he loved engaging in independent play with his toys. For the past several months, Hudson has been in a foster-training program where he is learning how a cherished pup and family member is to behave in a home environment. He's been doing great with his manners and learning commands, he's housebroken, and he's even come to learn that the crate does not need to be a scary place when you're in a real home and surrounded by people who love him and who he can trust. His foster parents are also working with him on his anxiety and reactivity towards strangers and other dogs. Hudson will do best in a single-pet home where his pet-parent(s) has experience working with a dog on its trust and fear issues, and where he will be able to continue working on overcoming his anxieties and related behaviors. He has shown that in the right environment, he wants to learn and he wants to please his trusted people! He just needs someone willing to give him the time and patience and skills he needs to keep working on being the best pup he can be! In order to achieve this, a suburban or sub-rural area would be the ideal environment for him to be able to focus on his own growth without the distractions of lots of strange people and other pets continuously passing by (as commonly found in urban or city setting). Hudson is a special boy who deserves all the good that life has to offer....he's just waiting for that special family who sees all the potential in him that is yet to be achieved. If Hudson's story is one that you can relate to and you are the special, patient, understanding pet-parent that he needs, please contact AmsterDog at info@amsterdog.org or complete our application at www.amsterdog.org/application to get the process started. Hudson is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots. Thank you for caring about a pet in need! show less

JELLYBEAN

Meet JellyBean 3 years old 65 lbs West Haven, CT At the shelter in New York City where JellyBean arrived as a stray, the volunteers said, "JellyBean takes his time making new friends but once the key to his heart - food - is found, he will warm up quickly. He needs a special person who will understand that he has a guarded heart and will make friends at his own pace. Once he knows you, he will show off his good side, rolling around on the floor and happily dancing by tapping his front feet. A quiet home where he will have the space and time to do this would be ideal for him. Once he gets to know his people, he will be a loyal friend.” Based on what we've learned about him, we suspect he's been mistreated in the past and, understandably, it takes him some time to warm up to his person (or people) and begin to trust them. With his current foster mom, he's really begun to blossom in her care. "Jellybean is very special," she says. "He promotes himself as a tough guy, but far from it - he's truly a lover! JellyBean is a happy soul, just scared someone is going to hurt him which is completely normal. Although he's nervous and confused, he's feeling more confident every day. He has an amazing sense of character, loves to explore and learn. He's pulling through in his own time. He's come a long way since he first arrived and I believe in him. He's finally beginning to learn to love life." His foster mom also reports that JellyBean loves his toys, is well-mannered with food, and takes treats nicely. He is well behaved/trained, low-key, and knows his basic commands. He walks well on the leash; doesn't attempt to bother anyone and is non-reactive (indifferent) to other dogs that he passes by - he looks to his trusted person for reassurance and guidance. Since loud noises and sudden movements make JellyBean nervous, and knowing he is very protective of "his person", he will be best set up to succeed in an experienced, adult-only, single-pet home that is calm and low-key where he can continue gaining confidence and building his newfound trust of humans. "JellyBean's definitely been hurt to the soul," says his foster mom. "He just wants to fit in and he's slowly starting to believe that no one will ever hurt him again. Now, he's just waiting for that family that wants to give him a permanent home and love him forever!" If JellyBean's story is one that you can relate to and you feel you are the special, patient, understanding person (or people) that he needs, please contact AmsterDog at info@amsterdog.org or complete our application at www.amsterdog.org/application to get the process started. JellyBean is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots. Thank you for caring about a pet in need! show less

JUSTICE URGENT!

It’s sad that “I will love you forever” at 8wks ended up meaning, I will love you until life gets tough, you do something wrong, or until I get old. Then, I will dump you in a big, scary, loud shelter in the city. And, I will sign you over to be euthanized, as supposedly, I am old, people aggressive, and animal aggressive. That’s Justice’s story. Her family welcomed her into their home at 8wks and then dropped her off to die at 5-6yrs old. Now, we don’t know the whole story, but we will tell you that it is apparent that Justice was not socialized outside the yard or home. Maybe she was owned by someone who didn’t understand guardian breeds. Maybe she was owned by someone who didn’t know they were adding a highly intelligent, working dog to the family and that this higher energy mastiff breed needed exercise, socialization, and training. Or maybe she was owned by someone who started off training and socializing her and then had tragedy strike and everything took the back seat. Whatever it may be, Justice did NOT deserve to die. CCR could not allow that to happen. We brought Justice to safety and now that we have learned more about her, we know that she needs an experienced home WITHOUT small dogs or cats. Here’s a little more about Justice: Justice is an active 5-6 year old Cane Corso who was surrendered to a Philadelphia city shelter back in February, by the family who added her to their family 5-6yrs prior. AmsterDog and CCR came together to save Justice hours before she was “to be destroyed”. She is currently being fostered by a fantastic and very experienced CCR foster family in Delaware. However, there’s one major issue…. Justice likes the cats too much. Remember that love for chasing the tennis ball I mentioned? Well, that stems from Justice’s incredible working drive, otherwise known as her “prey drive”. We REALLY need to get Justice into a foster to adopt situation in which she is ideally, the only dog. And, definitely NO cats or small dogs. Justice has no known history with children, so please don’t apply if you have children under 12 who live in your home or visit your home. Justice enjoys multiple walks a day, averaging about 3 miles. This girl has ENERGY and she can play fetch until her humans are more than worn out. Once she gets to know you, Justice is very loving and seeks out attention from men and women. Currently, she is crazy about her foster Dad… absolutely crazy about him! Justice is eager to please and knows many commands. She is getting better and better on leash, as she is as strong as an ox! **PLEASE SHARE JUSTICE’S STORY AND HELP US FIND THE PERFECT PERSON TO APPLY TO FOSTER OR ADOPT JUSTICE** show less

PRINCESS LIMA BEAN - 7 years old, 52 lbs, Manhattan Let's get to know each other a bit more... A volunteer writes: Princess Lima Bean is a delicate flower, soft and affectionate and longing for someone to take her under their wing and make her feel safe. She's shy at first, but very much wants to be friends, and with a 'slow and low' approach, is happy to come closer for petting and get dressed in a bandanna for our photo shoot. No camera can truly capture her aristocratic beauty, and she's not a fan of posing. Fortunately, my fun-loving friend Simba is playing in the pen next-door. The two are soon enraptured with each other. Princess hops onto the bench and gazes longingly through the fence, whining a little at her beau who jumps and grins hello back at her, then throws in a few reciprocal whines of his own. Even after he leaves the yard, her big brown eyes keep watch on the door, a perfectly loyal Juliet wondering wherefore art her Romeo. I'm a poor substitute but try to soften the loss with some gentle snuggles, and Princess sweetly rewards me with fluttering little cheek kisses. Out in the street she walks nicely on leash, almost immediately takes care of business, and passes yappy small dogs with ease. When a familiar staff member approaches, she greets them with tiny happy tail wags. Princess is quietly charming, easy to handle and so easy to love. With time and TLC from a caring family, she's going to blossom into the most wonderful pet. Lima Bean Videos: https://youtu.be/_DMbKAaOdm0 https://youtu.be/AFAsoS-ZLHo show less

Sweet, gentle Slade is a former bait dog who arrived at the NYC shelter with trauma wounds all over his poor little body. He also lost sight in one eye as a result of his injuries. Currently in a Foster/training program, he has been able to heal from his wounds and has undergone surgery on his paw as well as a major surgery where a portion of his intestines were removed due to a major obstruction. He has also been working on his emotional and behavioral issues that he incurred as a result of his former abuse and neglect. It has not been an easy life for this poor, young dog. But he has proven himself resilient and extremely forgiving. Despite the obvious cruelty he endured, there is not a mean bone in this little guy's body. He is very friendly, affection-seeking, and wags his tail when you talk to him. When you see the injuries on his sweet face and that vulnerable, small stature, it makes you wonder how anyone could be so heartless. "Slade is a bouncy, compact bundle of joy whose tail has not stopped wagging since the minute he walked through our door,” says his foster mom. “Just to watch him can warm the coldest of hearts...“ He is house-trained, likes treats, but most importantly, likes to spend his time next to you. Not surprisingly, he has separation anxiety and needs to be with his trusted person(s) most of the time. He prefers to be out of the crate and in a doggie bed. We can only wonder what dark memories he has, and the crate certainly brings back a few. As long as he has an area to call his own, he'll be happy as a clam, though he’d much rather be close to you and follow you around all day! He is not a hugger though, but loves to be pet! Give him a massage and he just melts. He’s looking for a place to heal emotionally and a family to love... one where he’s the only pet, with experienced, patient adults in a very calm environment to give him the greatest chance of success! Due to his separation anxiety, he would do best in a home where someone is able to be home with him the majority of the time. “He’s taken our breath away and deserves nothing less than the best home in the world,” says his foster mom. “Whoever will be lucky and blessed enough to have this kind hearted, gentle lamb in their life has certainly won the lottery." Slade is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots. If you would like to meet this special pup, please contact AmsterDog at info@amsterdog.org or complete our application at www.amsterdog.org/application to get the process started.
