Teddy is a tiny little unique Yorkie that is a beautiful soul. He is just hitting the 4 pound mark after a long hard life as a breeder dog. Teddy was turned into a kill shelter along with at least 10 others like him. He had rotted teeth and a broken jaw due to poor care. He eats just fine even without teeth however and his jaw works well so there is no need to do anything to fix it or we would have. His tongue hangs slightly out the side of his mouth which makes him even more lovable. Teddy came to us terrified and seemed to not have had socialization of any type. He literally fell to his belly if he even thought someone would touch him. Now Teddy actually loves to snuggle and he will come to people for attention although sometimes you need to move closer to pick him up. He probably will not ever get housebreaking fully as he clearly wasn't taught. Being a male we have used a belly band with a poise pad for Teddy and baby wipes when needed. He does great with that. Teddy had a trachea issue which he has medication for but he coughs on and off and most of the time we feel the medication isn't doing much. He also has terrible patellas (knees) but they have been that way for too long to help him and it doesn't seem to bother him. He will not jump off furniture thankfully because that could break his bones so his family would have to be very cautious to never leave him on a sofa or bed alone. One meeting and you will fall in love. Teddy is otherwise healthy. He has had all the vet care he needs until his next well check up. E-mail or send application to email@example.com. Teddy will only be adopted local on Long Island and whoever adopts him can have free pet sitting for him by his foster Mom if they go away.

Little Poochie is a 2 year old mini poodle weighing about 14 pounds. He is beautiful and super sweet. Poochie came from a home who didn't have time for a dog and they decided to find him a new family. This dog has a lot of energy and would be best fit with a family so he gets the attention and plays and walks enough to keep him happy and well exercised. He has so much love to give and would be trusted with children of all ages but we were told he can escape so we want him with children that understand not to leave doors or gates open so the youngest children will be 6 years old and they must be responsible. He is completely vetted and ready for his new family. He has been heartworm tested, micro chipped, neutered very recently and has his vaccines for his age. Must live on Long Island. For this dog the family MUST have a secure fenced yard and screen doors. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our application at www.nbrescue.org

Little Coco is a doll. Coco is a 13 year old poodle in the beautiful color apricot although she photographs more white. There is no doubt about it that sweetness is running through her veins. She is a little tiny butterball who could stand to lose a few pounds. She is the size of a 6 pound girl but she is weighing in at 9 pounds of chunky girl. Her family will need to work on that with her. She recently had 8 teeth removed which left her toothless. She has been updated on vaccines and brought up to date on her vet care. Coco is fine with other dogs. She also would be good with children that are well mannered and used to having small dogs at home. She uses paper for potty although she will probably need a refresher course at her new home as it is unclear if she went outside or on paper previously. Application for people on Long Island at www.nbrescue.org. Please e-mail with questions to email@example.com

Hi my name is Scotty I was rescued by A New Beginning when my former owner advertised me to be rehomed on Craigslist in the Bronx. Knowing I would not fair well they came and saved me fast! I am about 3 years old and a shih Tzu and poodle.. I weigh about 18 lbs but can still fit in your lap. I love, love my toys and playing fetch in the yard. I am also housebroken. I get very attached to my person but my foster mom thinks that I haven't always been treated well. I can get a little grumpy sometimes if I feel like someone is going to hurt me. But everyday I trust more and more. Because of my past abuse and being a bit unsure I will not be placed in a home with children and ideally a home with a single person would be best so I respect and listen to one adult. If you tell me no I immediately submit and roll over onto my back. The rescue needs you to know that I have been in the past which is most likely due to fear and my initial trigger was someone touching my collar or harness or trying to clean my face. They touch my collar all the time now and have made me know it is ok. They muzzle me to clean my eyes and to groom me and I am absolutely fine with that as well. I would benefit from a dog savvy home that will reassure me that I don't have to worry about being hurt anymore. I do like other dogs as well. They don't know if I like cats but think I would. I am 99.9 percent a love bug and you will definitely fall in love with me and probably not believe that I would ever give anyone a problem. Scotty loves EVERYONE but due to his being unpredictable we cannot allow him to go to a home where children live. He was fine going meeting strangers on the street for walks with his foster and he went to boarding and was an angel too. He really is a good guy. Must live on Long island to fill out an application if interested at Www.nbrescue.org

Tyson came from the NYC animal shelter. Our vet guessed he is probably 8 or 9 years old We are super confused because they said he is 15 but there is pretty much NO WAY. Our vet said he can be as young as 8 and that if he was 15 that he is the best looking dog for his age EVER. His teeth are amazingly clean and could pass for 8 easily. His eyes have minimal change for an aging dog. Just had a dental in June 2017. He is pretty active too. I'd have to say we are honest so that is why I am putting the 15 part. He loves to snuggle. He loves walks. He doesn't like when you put a harness on him. He startles a little easily so we would like adult home for him. Write questions to firstname.lastname@example.org Long Island adoptions only Home check, vet check and references needed. Fine with dogs but couldn't care to have them around. Cats unknown Does like children but being he startles easy we won't adopt to a home that has them living there. Visiting children are fine.

Coco is perfection in so many ways. She has the most beautiful personality and lots of love to give. She is a 1o year old shih Tzu poodle mix. Coco is great with everyone including dogs and children. Cats are not known as far as living together however. Coco has health issues which her new family will have to know about. Coco is diabetic and until we took her in the family didn't buy her insulin which the vet recommended she needed to lead a healthy life. We have now put her on the medication and she is doing well. Coco has dental disease and she ill be having a full dental. She also had mammary tumors which we had removed and we are super happy to say they were not cancerous. She was spayed at the time of surgery as well. Within a few weeks Coco will be ready for a family of her own. Insulin shots are very easy for most dogs. She is good for them and as she trusts her care taker the insulin injections after her meals becomes part of a routine. She is so easy going. We are checking her from head to toe.

Echo is a super adorable small Yorkshire terrier who was surrendered to our rescue as his family consisted of senior citizens who were no longer able to care for him. He was a great dog in their home but they weren't able to let him out to relive himself and they would never be able to continue into the future. Echo is looking for a special home. He would do best in a single person household. Echo loves to play fetch and would do so all day if you will let him. He is crate trained and goes outside to potty. He is healthy. Echo takes time to warm up as far as being held and when he is held he doesn't like another person coming to close to the person holding him. He is fearful of this for some reason. He has a very happy personality and he will be a good companion for the right person. We will be happy to tell you more about him but only apply if you meet the single household criteria as we want what is best for the dog. You will fall in love at first sight. Must be over 21 to adopt and must live in the Long Island area. An application can be downloaded on our web site at www.nbrescue.org if you live on Long Island. If you are somewhere else please check with us before applying. Must have vet reference if applicable and personal references. Home check mandatory.

Minnie is a min pin who is completely blind and who came to us from the local shelter here on Long Island. She came very overweight and has taken off some weight but is not ever going to be a slim girl. She suffers from some arthritic issues and takes supplements for this. Minnie has had her eyes tested for many different issues and fortunately her eye care is under control with several different medications that are a little costly. She is a quirky girl with a big heart and a big personality which is basically sweet. She would love to be your lap dog although she will try to be independent if forced to do so. She manages to get around but she will give it a shot to make you help her and to act like she cannot find her way. She would do best in a home that is a ranch with an easily accessible yard and with older children or adults only due to her inability to see. A noisy home would most likely not be a good match. She needs someone who is home almost full time due to her age and physical problems. Must be over 21 and live on Long Island to adopt. This dog must have a yard. Apply to email@example.com.

Bruiser is an 11 year old Min Pin who is very friendly and also active. He has a lot of spunk in him for his age. He does have some arthritis and is on supplements for this along with arthritis pain medication for the bad days. Bruiser came to us from a couple who went into assisted living and the family could not keep the dog due to allergies and other living arrangement issues. He is a nice boy but is quirky with some of his own personality. He likes other dogs and he is said to like cats although we have not seen him with them. Bruiser is housebroken and he will let you know when he needs to go out. He would do best in a quiet home and would be a wonderful senior companion. Bruiser would like a home with no stairs due to his legs. This would make his life a lot easier. Must be 21 or over to adopt. References including vet reference when available is necessary. Bruiser is up to date on vaccines, micro-chipped and neutered. Please be local to Long Island as a home check is necessary.
