Rusty

Adult Male Medium

Rusty is a most handsome, 6 yr. old, neutered, Retriever mix. He is a gentle, shy guy until he gets to know you. Once he does, his true sweet and friendly, cuddly nature shines through his glistening eyes. Rusty would love a mellow, adult home where he can take easy going walks, sit by your side while you watch television, and look out the window, realizing he is safe at last! Rusty loves his belly rubs so please provide a generous portion. Rusty loves to splash around in the kiddie pool so if you happen to have one, please invite him in! Rusty sits nicely for treats and takes food and treats gently. If you can provide a quiet, loving, patient home, one without too many new people coming and going, then you will enjoy the company of Rusty as a loving, loyal companion. Rusty can be seen during regular adoption hours. Please fill out an adoption application at: folas.org Check out Rusty's video on utube at https://youtu.be/jx8aUMW9iag

She keeps her kennel nice and clean, is housebroken, and has very few demands…she just wants a loving, forever home.

Mario

Young Male Small

NEEDS AN EXPERIENCED PET OWNER. Mario is an adorable, 3 yr. old, neutered, Maltipoo. He was found wandering in the street and was clearly very neglected. Sadly, Mario was so defensive when we groomed him that he had to be sedated. He is a complicated little guy and needs an experienced pet owner and an adult only, quiet home. Mario loves to go for walks and walks nicely on a leash. He is housebroken, loves to snuggle, and go for car rides. Why is he complicated then? Mario has guarding issues for food, toys, kennel and so this sweetie pie has some issues that require an experienced, adult home. If you are looking for a handsome guy who needs the help of a structured home, and are an experienced pet owner, then please apply to foster or adopt Mario at: folas.org Mario can be seen during regular adoption hours. Please fill out an adoption application at: folas.org This should be a home with absolutely NO CHILDREN AND NO OTHER DOGS. We want to give Mario the opportunity to become well adjusted. If you think you can help Mario, please email folasinfo@gmail.com

Jake

Adult Male Medium

Jake is a stunning, sweet, smart, 5 yr. old, neutered,Staffordshire Terrier/ Lab mix. At a year old, Jake was brought to the Linden Animal Control facility and the Friends of Linden Animal Shelter stepped up to save him. He is the longest resident at the rescue and the volunteers adore him and have no idea why he is not adopted. Jake has a special spark, a winning smile, and the sweetest disposition. This boy LOVES to play ball, loves to go for walks, loves to snuggle and go for car rides, too. He is housebroken, walks well on a leash, knows some basic commands, and promises to be a most loyal and loving companion. Although Jake prefers not to live with other pets, he can walk by other dogs and not bother them. He keeps his kennel spotlessly clean, sits like a statue for treats, plays fetch like a master athlete, and desperately wants to find his person or family. Jake has watched so many of the other dogs come and go and yet... each night, he has to go alone, back into his kennel. Jake is best in a home with older children or adults. Please apply to adopt this incredibly handsome, special boy from: Friends of Linden Animal Shelter at: www.folas.org and email: folasinfo@gmail.com

Sugar

Adult Female Medium

Sugar is in URGENT need of placement in a permanent or foster home! Her foster mom is moving in with a sick family member and can no longer foster her - so please consider adopting or fostering her if your circumstances allow!! Sugar is a beautiful, beautiful blue nose bully girl! We believe her to be a bull dog/staffy mix of about 60 lbs and 2-3 years old. She is a short legged girl with a stocky body and her fur is thick and plush. She has an understated brindle look to her tan coat featuring hints of brown, carmel and gold. Sugar is gorgeous with her dreamy, hazel green eyes that don't really show well in her pictures, but trust us-they are melt-worthy! Sugar likes other well-behaved/adjusted dogs and people (but likes cats a little too much). She can be dog selective and does not like bossy or confrontational dogs. She is a fun-loving girl who has a zest for life and who enjoys a good game of rough-housing, fetch or keep away. Sugar can be a bit possessive with certain prized possessions but we are working on this and she making good progress, now even enjoying a great game of tug with foster mom or sharing toys with her foster sister and brother. Its also pretty easy to rein her in when she starts to get too overly excited, which is a good thing! Sugar likes going for walks and investigating new things. She is a also a good watch dog and let's foster mom know when anyone is around. She can also be very protective of her human(s). She is learning basic commands and is eager to please. She knows "sit", "high 5", "down", and "come". We are also working on "look" and "leave it". She is potty trained. She is spayed, micro chipped and up to date with her shots. She is a great partner for playing Frisbee, and snuggling! We think she would do well in a structured home environment with not too much chaos, and not a lot of people coming and going continuously. We are looking for either a single person, a couple or a family with older children who are committed to working with her training going forward. You won't find a sweeter and happier girl than this one. Simple things seem to please Sugar so. (And almost anything can be a toy to have fun with, including empty laundry detergent bottles!) Sugar is in foster in the Rahway/Clark/Linden area and is available to be seen by appointment. If you think you would be interested in meeting her or if you have any questions, please feel free to email Ilsa Singer of Crossed Paws Rescue at ilse_ny@yahoo.com. She will respond to your inquiry ASAP. Or you can contact his temporary foster mom at kaatzndogz@aol.com. If you are interested in adopting her please complete our online application and a volunteer will contact you shortly.dog application can be found at folas.org/our dogs/dog adoption application
