Pretzel's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Pretzel's Story...
Pretzel is the cuddly little runt of the litter, a bit timid but warms up quickly.

We have puppies! Potato, Pretzel, Pudding, and Parsley are adorable 4 month old mixed breeds surrendered to a local shelter. According to their owner they are a mix of...wait for it... Chinese crested, Italian Greyhound, Poodle and Shih tzu! Please email the application below to if you are interested in adopting one of these pups. Please note while they seem to be low-shedding, they do not have hypoallergenic coats and would not be appropriate for allergy sufferers.

We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pretzel, a Oak Ridge Schnauzer (Miniature)/Poodle (Miniature) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Miniature)/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Oak Ridge, or seeking a Schnauzer (Miniature)/Poodle (Miniature) puppy from a breeder in Oak Ridge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Ridge 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 Oak Ridge 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 Schnauzer (Miniature)/Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Schnauzer (Miniature)/Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
