This is Campbell, a 5 month old Boxer mix puppy. He is doing excellent on walking on his leash and harness. He can be slow to trust so will probably need a few days to settle in and warm up. But once he's comfy, he is a total cuddle bug! He loves walks, belly rubs, and forehead kisses. He is very gentle with children. At this time he is being taken outside to use the bathroom 15-20 mins after a meal, as he is having some difficulty with ringing the bell to notify his foster family when he has to go potty. But, they are still working on that bell training! He loves attention and will be the perfect winter buddy. It's time for this guy to have a forever home full of love!
Calaveres is a 5 month old boxer mix that Mohammad Ali would be proud of! This guy is always using his paws whether it’s to grab a chew toy or wrestle with his brother and resident dogs at his foster home! He knows how to sit for treats and will only use potty pads overnight, but goes outside the rest of the time! He has tons of energy and is going to be a good sized dog fully grown so a home where he gets plenty of exercise would be very beneficial! When he does eventually calm down, he turns into a giant cuddle bug and sleeps through the night like a champ! Calaveres is always up for anything and would love a new furever home for the holidays!
Casselman is a brindle boxer mix puppy of joy! He may be shy when he meets new people, but soon warms up and will never let you out of his sight! Casselman is super smart and has been learning his basic commands alongside his brother while he waits for a furever home! He is doing great with potty training, usually only going on the potty pads overnight. As mentioned he tends to be timid with new people and surroundings (who wouldnt be!) so he needs someone who is going to continue socializing him as it brings out his true awesome personality! Casselman loves to snuggle up with his someone at the end of his day and will stay in your lap until you make him move!
Meet Maggie a 6 year old Beagle mix. She is good with other dogs and kids. She would prefer a quieter home with a friend or two as she has some fear of loud noises. She is not a fan of smaller, loud dogs. She's terrified of thunder storms and needs some TLC during them. She likes to sprawl out on the couch and just chill. She also LOVES to be outside in the sun and will easily spend 4-6 hours in a fenced-in backyard. She rides great in the car. Maggie is looking for her forever family that will love and care for her!
Scarlett does not have any outward signs of abuse… hers are all inside. She was never allowed in the home and fended for herself in the neighborhood. Eating out of trash cans and drinking out of puddles or dirty water bowls. She had very limited human contact. Animal control tried to catch her for 3 years. They finally caught her, found she was heartworm positive and now has been successfully treated. She looks to other dogs for guidance so a home with another dog(s) is a MUST. She is a flight risk and will benefit from a high fenced home and secured collar and leash. A very experienced foster has been working with her for a few months now. She has love to give. She needs someone willing to allow her time to learn to trust. We can see the hope in her eyes...
SAVE A LIFE
Overcrowded shelters take in millions of stray, abused, and lost animals every year. Not only do these animals give you unconditional love, but they have been shown to be physically, emotionally, and psychologically beneficial to their companions. Additionally, when you adopt, you are opening up another space for a rescue or shelter to help another animal in need.
Not ready to adopt? That’s okay – You can still help! Fostering is a great way to help without the commitment. East Coast Canine Rescue is a 100% foster based rescue. Our dogs are saved from high-kill shelters as well as situations of abuse and neglect. We believe every dog deserves a home; therefore, our dogs are immediately placed in foster homes where they are loved, cared for, and provided a home where they can let their personality shine.
Volunteers are an integral part of East Coast Canine Rescue Inc. We are always looking for friendly, dynamic, dog-loving people eager to help get our deserving dogs find loving homes. We are consistently looking for volunteers to help in our many departments: Transportation of dogs to events and foster homes, Home Visits, Photography, and Adoption Events.
