Buster, chihuahua mix

Buster is a male chihuahua mix currently residing at Waggytail Rescue.

Buster is eager to make friends, and he's happy to keep company with other dogs. Buster is already neutered, vaccinated and house-trained.

Buster's current caretakers say:

Buster is a 2ish-years, 14-pounds male chihuahua mix from Texas. This adorable and easily lovable boy is shy at first and is easily scared, but a patient and caring owner can slowly help him come out of his shell. Once he starts to open up, he is a loyal and observant pup with spurts of energy!

Cookie, mixed breed

Cookie is a darling female mixed breed dog being kept at Pound Hounds Res-Q.

Cookie will get along great with your other dogs, but she is looking for a cat-free household. She has mastered her house-training etiquette. She already has had all of her shots, and she's spayed.

Notes from Cookie's caretakers:

Cookie was brought to the NYCACC, the NYC municipal shelter, as a stray. Not much was known about her. She soon landed on the euthanasia list, and an amazing foster stepped up to save her.

Zeus, pit bull terrier mix

Zeus is a male pit bull terrier mix in the care of Pound Hounds Res-Q.

Pound Hounds Res-Q recommends Zeus be placed in a home without small children. He is already vaccinated, neutered and house-trained.

Notes from Zeus' caretakers:

Zeus is playful and needs an adult with patience. He would do extremely well with a confident individual (not anxious). Zeus takes treats gently unless excited. Very inquisitive and athletic.

Lucky, mastiff and boxer mix

Lucky is a charming male mastiff and boxer mix currently housed at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.

Lucky will get along great with your other dogs, but he is looking for a cat-free home. He is vaccinated and neutered, and he's mastered his house-training etiquette.

Here's what Lucky's friends at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC think of him:

Lucky, thought to be a mastiff/boxer mix, was born in 2016 and came into rescue from a South Carolina shelter, emaciated. After proper introductions, Lucky is good with mellow dogs. No cats for Lucky, thank you! He loves to spend time with his person, to whom he devotes himself. Lucky is looking for a quiet home, with a single owner and without a lot of people in and out.

Kay, pit bull terrier mix

Kay is a sweet female pit bull terrier mix currently residing at PupStarz Rescue.

Kay gets along well with other dogs. She's spayed and vaccinated, and she is already house-trained.

Kay's current caretakers say:

Kay is shyness, sweetness and silliness all rolled up into one magnificent, soft, furry ball. Kay’s approach is careful and cautious, but once she sees that it’s safe, she opens up like a fresh spring flower. Kay is fun, playful, kissy, cuddly and the biggest mush you’ve ever seen! And she’s sharp as a tack, too! She obediently responds to the commands sit, stay, stop, come, down and wait. And who knows what other tricks she’s got up her hairy little sleeve!

Gucci, Maltese and poodle mix

Gucci is a lovable female Maltese and poodle mix being cared for at Metropolitan Maltese Rescue.

Gucci loves other dogs, but she is looking for a cat-free forever home, and Metropolitan Maltese Rescue thinks she will do best in a home without small children. Fear not: She is already house-trained. Her vaccinations are already up-to-date, and she is spayed. Gucci is a special-needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.

From Gucci's current caretaker:

Gucci is a sweet and loving adult (8-10 years old) Maltese and poodle mix (Maltipoo) who absolutely craves hugs and attention. She will come to you and ask to be picked up by putting her paws on your knees, and when you bend down, she pretty much jumps into your arms and will then slather you with kisses. Gucci also loves playing with toys and will play “fetch” outside or inside, either with a human or by herself, throwing the toy in the air and then jumping on it. Such fun!
