Ariel [more info]

http://youtu.be/5gkw3YTLg3U http://youtu.be/t2KBQxLt5cY http://youtu.be/QF-kGLeUKZo Meet Ariel. This precious 7 year old 60ish lbs brindle rottie pit mix has a world of love to give! Ariel absolutely LOVES humans and children. With a heart of gold, Ariel will even let you play with her and her food dish while she is eating and loves to dress up in any costume or outfit! What a gem! Who could ever resist those soulful eyes, perky smile, and expressive ears? She looks forward to the day she can play, snuggle, and spoil her human! At this time, Ariel lives in a boarding facility. This is no life for any dog. Unfortunately, and by no fault of her own, the right family has yet to come along for her. Before she was dumped in a high kill shelter, the only life she knew was as a breeding machine and mommy. Once her ‘family’ no longer had any use for her, they dumped her in a rural TN shelter. Not only was she abandoned and on death row, but she was stuck in a location where it is ILLEGAL to adopt our a dog with any pit in them. Inevitably, Ariel was scheduled for death. Needless to say, Ariel did not die that day. She began a new life as a Twenty Paws dog. At a convenient 60 lbs, this doll yearns to finally know what its like to be someone's baby. She cared for so many in the past, and they were all stolen from her. No one cared for her at all. She lavished at her newly found freedom and second chance. Eternally grateful to the vet staff for their determination to improve her health, Ariel showers them with kisses and wiggles. Truly, now it is her turn to experience love and affection. Every night, Ariel dreams that someone will be her hero. Every night, she dreams that she can become part of a family. Could it be your family? Ariel found a foster home trough Foster Dogs NYC's program, Operation Foster Bound. She is doing so well. Ariel proved herself to be a mellow and calm girl who enjoys leisurely walks, cuddling with you, and laying on the couch. She alreadys had her first professional training session and excelled. She would be fine living with a calm older dog or perfect as an only pet. Want a lazy adult dog who will keep you company and love you forever, unconditionally? This is your girl! if interested in adopting, please email us at twentypawsrescue@gmail.com or info@twentypawsrescue.com. **Due to a gmail glitch, we lose some emails.

Bernie [more info]

Bernie, a Red nose pitbull puppy born on July 15th, 2012 (3 years old), was dumped in a shelter when his family could not care for him anymore. The resident dogs kept attacking Bernie, and the home could not handle it anymore . Bernie weighs 54 lbs and is in good health- vaccinated and neutered. He is incredibly SWEET and a total DOLL. He loves to play fetch and tug of war with his chew/squeeze toys. A perfect gentleman on leash, Bernie enjoys long walks around the neighborhood. HE IS AMAZING WITH CHILDREN! Full of life and eager to please, Bernie has a wonderful disposition and student. Due to what this poor boy has endured, Bernie should go to a home with no other dogs. Please consider giving him a chance- he will loyally and unconditionally love you forever!

Moses [more info]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qldf4EwEE_I Moses is a breath taking boy, just about 2 years old, and about 60 lbs. He has the cutest google markings around his eyes! Between his astonishing good looks and magnetic personality, Moses is a hit anywhere he goes. He is absolutely wonderful with people and children. He does get along with dogs; however, a meet and greet would be required. Moses also loves car rides, belly rubs, and snuggling. He often gets attacked by his ninja feline foster sister- poor boy doesn't know what hit him! We rescued Moses out of deplorable conditions where he was left locked in a room without food or water for over a week. You see the house was a host to vast array of illegal activity. When the people were arrested, he was left behind chained in the room. When the landlord came to look at the property, he need to get him out. After a string of calls, he got our number and told us we had to get him immediately or he will end up in the shelter. We high tailed it over to him and got him. Moses greeted us with the HAPPIEST of spirits. If you could not see his deplorable physical condition, you would never have known he was starving and insurmountably thirsty for a week (during our summer heat wave nonetheless). He was just so grateful to be alive, outside, and with people who care. After witnessing where he came from, we appropriately named him Moses- who has a heart of gold. Sadly, his horrific life left him with more than just hunger, thirst, and an emaciated frame. Moses was covered in old scars. We do not know where this is from. However, it is clear that he was a victim of circumstance more than once. Our hearts bleed for Moses; and, after seeing him, we know he will simultaneously break and capture your heart too.

Avery is a comical addition to any home with elfish ears, heavenly eyes, and a wiggle that tickles you with laughter. You will enjoy every moment of each day with her! Avery has come so far from her start. She came to us when she was 3 months old, dumped at a shelter, with EVERY bone in her body broken- literally!

Gracie [more info]

**An adorable feline duo looking for a forever home** Gracie and Whitney are female short domestic short hair cats between 3 and 4 years old. Both cats are about 8-10 lbs, indoor only, fully vetted, litter trained, and spayed. The perfect pair loves kids and other people. Although they can be skittish at first, they warm up quickly to those they meet. Supporting each other, they will hide until both are comfortable to come out. Curious and inquisitive, Gracie and Whitney are natural explorers- climbing, jumping, and enjoying the sight lines from an elevated location. If introduced to other cats properly, these girls do get along with them well. Gracie is an independent young lady. Once she trusts you, she becomes your protective shadow. Gracie’s weaknesses include toys and string- she just loves to play with them! Although Gracie likes company and kisses, this girl is very low maintenance and content being on her own. Whitney can also be shy and timid. Very quiet, Whitney will sneak in for a nice petting cuddle session. Much like her sister, she loves to play. Also, she is very friendly and passive with other animals. When another cat hisses or tries to instigate with her, she just steps back. Such a good girl!

Maverick [more info]

Hello! My name is Maverick, but my mom and dad call me fatty! I will answer to either or. I am 50 lbs of love! Please don’t be turned off by my scars, everyone calls them beauty marks once they actually look at them, They don’t hurt me or bother me at all, actually I love when my mom smooshes my fat cheeks and pulls on them. Although I have had a real tough path medically, I am 100000% healthy! When I was first adopted I was very cautious of my new family. I would not let my guard down and would never think of cuddling. BOY WAS I MISSING OUT! I love cuddling now! If you aren’t paying attention to me and I want to cuddle I will waddle on over and plop myself right on your chest! And don’t worry about making room for me, if you are laying down watching tv I will simply lay on your legs and rest my head right on your stomach. Because I love cuddling so much I NEED to sleep in bed with you at night. Mom says I am the perfect alarm clock! 7 am everyday I lick her until she wakes up! If that doesn’t work I jump off the bed and stomp around until she HAS to get up. And as much as I love cuddling I LOVE FOOD! If you say “Mav you hungry?” WATCH OUT! I will steam roll right thru you to run into my crate! (I have to eat in my crate because I eat too fast, and I don’t like to share my food) The vet told my mom to put a brick in my food to slow my eating down, some people try to put a ball but I just picked that up and moved it. I love food of all kind so be careful, if you are opening the fridge I will be right behind you (dad sometimes closes the door without looking first and my head is still in there) Playtime is ALL the time! I will play with anything and everything! Cardboard, bouncy balls, ropes, ANYTHING! I am really silly and throw things up and the air (mom doesn’t know if its on purpose or if I am just so excited that it just happens) I am not very graceful when I run (Mom has literally peed her pants at the sight of me running, she says its like a weird gallop that all my feet leave the ground at once) I don’t always play the nicest, but I am learning! If you say “mouth” I tend to stop using my mouth to play. I love wrestling, mom and dad pick me up and slam me on their bed and wrestle with me, I love it! I also love learning! I know sit, down/off, lay down, look, leave it, stay, drop it (can I have it), and I am learning more! I am very food motivated, but sometimes I have an A.D.D moment just get my attention back and I am ready to go! Hygiene is very important to me. So much so that I will jump in the shower with you when you are taking a shower! I also sit nice in the bath and love LOVE LOVE when I am having lathering shampoo all over me. I need to get my nails cut often because we are in the process of cutting the vein back. I am not such a big fan of this, but if you keep playing with my paws I will get better at it. I hope you don’t need privacy because NOONE goes to the bathroom without me watching. I love to just awkwardly sit right in front of who ever is going potty and stare. If you try to go in without me I will just push the door open and let myself in. Also make sure you close the toilet seat cover when you are done, I have drank ALL the water out of the bowl before. And make sure the toilet paper is high up because I am known for taking the rolls and running off with them. (Mom has this on video) Unfortunately, I don’t get along well with other dogs. I am too scared! My blood pressure goes up so fast that my whole head turns red, literally my scars and my ears. I have tried but I get too scared and start acting really bad. Because of this is why my mom and dad can’t keep me anymore. They love me and I know they do, but their lifestyle and what I need just don’t mix right now. They don’t have a yard and they live a very active life style (which is what we originally thought I needed). As I get older we realize that I need to stay in a comfort zone of never leaving MY HOUSE. I need a yard to run in and roll around in the grass (I love it so much) and I need a family who will let me be as silly as I love to be. Mom and dad have been told that they can try mood stabilizers but they love my personality and they don’t want to change that. People think that I am dangerous because I don’t play well with others, this couldn’t be MORE WRONG! I am a people LOVER mom and dad have had people over and I love every single one of them (Sometimes too much!) I lick them all over until they cant breath because they are covered in slober! I really need a family who will keep working with me, because I love life so much! I have fought so hard to be able to live and I want to keep enjoying the life that so many people have fought for! Mom and Dad know I deserve that and know that I will be okay and happyish at their house, but they know I will have an even better life with someone who will never make me leave home.

Shea [more info]

Have you met the most gentle and loving boy in town? No? Well then sit back and enjoy! This is Shea. He is the sweetest and most loving 75 pound 2 year old boy. This darling gentle boy absolutely loves other dogs, small, large, mean, nice, and everything in between. He would love to be in a home with another dog to cuddle and play with. However, he would also be absolutely overjoyed to be in a home without other animals that will just have him as the center of their attention. After some TLC, she has learned how to play with others and toys. He loves going to the dog park or engaging in some fun with you. He is a gentleman on the leash, and extremely gentle when taking treats. A great best friend for any child! This extremely smart and eager to please boy knows his basic commands. You really could not get a better boy than is this ladies man with the most soulful eyes. He loves instantly and once you become a part of him his loyalty is undying and unconditional. This boy had a horrible life before finding rescue. When we found him he was hiding under a pickup truck in a junkyard by Citi Field. Then, injured, and completely lost, this abandoned boy needed extensive love and care. His teeth were broken, his leg mangled and infected, and his spirit broken. With the help of some talented veterinarians, we were able to save his leg. With the help of some amazing volunteers, we were able to save his soul. Today, you would never know this boy suffered so tremendously. Heart is warm and fuzzy, just like the wiggles and the cuddles he would love to give you. Consider this boy you will not be sorry.

Brooklyn [more info]

http://youtu.be/1JP2qISqLQ4 http://youtu.be/ZUInogteoS0 http://youtu.be/DeL3NO9K2hI Brooklyn is a big boned 65lbs 6 year old American Staffordshire terrier mastiff mix who is well mannered, laid back, amazing boy. His outgoing loving personality will increase your heart size at least 3 fold. Brooklyn is a master at giving you the "puppy eyes" and redefines the art with his uniquely crackled spider web amber eyes! He also likes to stay classy and crosses his paws when he lays down. Brooklyn has previously lived with animals but prefers to be the only animal in the home. However, a home with other animals is an option for him. The police found Brooklyn running in the streets in Canarsie, took him in, and called Twenty Paws. When they found him I had a large prong collar digging into his skin and has left a bald spot in its place. Brooklyn’s allergies were neglected and required treatment for a skin infection, which was caused another bald spot on his back. Brooklyn is now completely healthy and ready to be the king of the castle. He is a complete love bug and walks well with a gentle leader leash. Although he LOVES people and kids, an adult home or one with older children would be best for him- due to his large size and goofy/clumsy behavior. A great listener, Brooklyn knows his basic commands and eager to learn more. Brooklyn currently lives with a military family and the moving around is very stressful for him and he is looking for a more stable environment. Brooklyn will be at your feet all day trying to please you. Brooklyn is crate trained and will sleep quietly in his crate all night but would prefer to keep your toes warm in the bed. He is completely house trained as well. Brooklyn is ready to go home to a dog bed (or your bed) and safe place to roam. With a lot of love to give, Brooklyn eagerly awaits to be all your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
