Cheddar's Story...
Whew, I am so glad to be sleeping on a bed in a house. I have had a rough couple of weeks. I lived with a family all my life, but then they took me to a really scary place and left me. I was so upset and sad, but then I heard they were coming back for me. Looked like I‘d be home for Thanksgiving. Well Thanksgiving came, and I was still in a scary place. They said something about my time being up - I am such a good boy. Why did this happen? Just as I was about to give up, I heard I was moving. Oh no - moving? After I got in the van and the nice lady let me sit in the passenger seat, I thought maybe I am going to a good place. A couple of hours later, I was at the beach! I didn‘t care it was December because I slept in a home that night on a dog bed. I think I am safe, and I will not spend the upcoming holidays in a scary place. I am in a temporary foster because the lady here said I am so good she couldn‘t put me in a kennel even if it is a safe kennel.

I am fine with the three other dogs here, and I am house trained and know how to sit. I really love the dog bed. I am no trouble and would love to be with my “furever” family for the New Year, but I am so happy that the Rescue has found a foster home for me. One other thing - I hear I have to have an operation - a male thing - but I won‘t need to spend the night away from my dog bed.

If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out an application and ask for Cheddar!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cheddar, a Barnegat Light Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shar Pei for sale in Barnegat Light, or seeking a Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Barnegat Light.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barnegat Light already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Barnegat Light breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shar Pei breeders who help with Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barnegat Light paves the way for another one to be saved.
