Ozzie's Story...
Ozzie is a Sato, from Puerto Rico. He was given as a gift when only 6 weeks old. Luckily the recipient realized they were not equipped to deal with a puppy, and rather than do what so often happens on the island (throw him on the street, abandon him in the jungle, or turn him in to a shelter where the kill rate is 94%), they contacted a local rescue group for help. Now safely in NJ, Ozzie is an active, playful puppy. We were told he looked like a Golden Retriever mix, but we are thinking he may be smaller, more like a Sheltie. Whatever his mix, this is a precious pup who will be a great pet for a family with children.
All our dogs/pups are spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. They have been dewormed and are current on vaccinations. Our adoption fee includes 30 days of complimentary medical insurance for your new pet.
Our dogs are fostered on a private residence, we do not have a free standing shelter. They live on a farm where they run and play with other dogs, cats, horses, and barnyard fowl.
Initial contact with us must be made through e-mail.
E-mail ARFofMercer@gmail.com for an adoption application or with any questions. Once your adoption application is approved, you will be invited to meet our dogs/puppies.
