Everyone meet 7 month old June! June would be a great fit for an active family as she is energetic as well. She’s the quintessential curious puppy, who loves to play with toys (tennis balls are her favorite), chew on bones and wrestle with her foster dog brothers. While she is playful, she’s also a great cuddler and couch potato. She loves her crate, sleeps through the night and has been fully potty trained since her foster family welcomed her. She won’t be your cat’s best friend, but she has no interest in hurting them either. They just exist in her world. June is awaiting her forever family she can settle into.
Hi my name is Pollyanna! My foster parents call me Poly, princess poly and poly pockets.... either way I love my nicknames! I am a 6 year old mountain cur mix and a medium sized dog at 30 lbs. I am shy at first, but once I get comfortable and get to know you, I am so sweet. I will be your loving best friend! I sleep well in a crate or on a bed at your side. I am completely potty trained and know some commands. I get along with big and small humans as well as big and small dogs! I am a pretty quiet dog so you won’t hear me bark too much. I hope to find my forever family soon, could that be you?
Meet Kaia, an eager and beautiful 3 year old Dutch Shepherd mix who loves to hang out with you no matter what you are doing. She walks great on a leash and enjoys hiking and long walks.
Kaia is also very well behaved off leash and has excellent recall. She enjoys playing with all the dog friends she has on the farm where she is being fostered. She is not suited for a household with cats or rabbits, but seems to ignore the chickens. She also is very good around horses. Kaia knows the commands Come, Sit and Down so far. She loves to learn and be praised! The more time that is spent with her the bigger her bond and her aim to please you. Kaia is looking for her forever family!
Hey there! Bobo here waiting for a family to call my own. I am a male German shepherd mix and weigh about 35 lbs. I like to hang with my dawg friends and LOVE people.
I’m about 7 months old and ready to learn the ropes of your home. I would do great in a home with kids of all ages. I like to chase kitties, so probably no kitty cats in your home. I love to cuddle on the couch and be lazy with you but when you want to play, I perk up! I am such a good boy and can't wait to meet you. Did you see I have ears for days? LOL Please adopt me and I will be your bestest boy!
Campbell, the Boxer/Terrier Mix is 15 months old. He has come SUCH a long way. We've learned he's fearful, not aggressive. He's a rough player with other dogs, but is thoroughly aware of boundaries. He likes to tap your legs and lean back to signify he wants to use the bathroom outside and knows how to play fetch and return the ball. He also knows how to throw the ball at you if you aren't throwing it fast enough! Lol From the tips of his toes to the tip of his nose, he uses his entire body to run. This guy is FAST! Campbell had a rough start but has made tremendous progress. He has a lifelong trainer that comes with his adoption as well!
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.
