No longer useful as a hunting dog, Sam found himself in a very high kill shelter and he was so scared he would not come out of a tube that was located in his run. He would shake and tuck himself as far into the tube as he could get and there was no getting him out for anyone to consider adopting him. His fearful action was going to be his downfall as the shelter felt they would have no choice but to consider euthanizing. No one would want him in that condition! When we saw his video we recognized that it was going to take a dedicated rescue to consider such a fearful dog.....and we were certain it was just a matter of his surroundings and not the nature of this dog. Within 24 hours of being rescued his true INCREDIBLE COONHOUND PERSONALITY SURFACED and we are not disappointed.

Sam is in a foster home in PA now and has responded very well to being removed from the scary shelter environment. He is fully vetted, neutered and brought current on all vaccines. Sam is looking for a forever home that will love him for himself....not because he can hunt. He's thought to be around 5-7 years old, he's learning to play in place of hunt and finding that it's a whole lot more fun!

About Diamond Dogs Rescue Inc - NJ Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Our rescue focus is on adult dogs from the southeast that are in high kill shelters. Our plan is to fully vet as needed, evaluate and train as needed in preparation for adoption. We place our rescues in a foster home setting to prepare our dogs for a home of their own and to determine the best match for that rescue. Please keep in mind that a rescues are located in foster homes up the east coast. They can be transported to their forever home

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our dogs are all in foster care throughout NJ , and New England and various other locations. We do NOT have a physical location for your to visit our dogs, They are seen by appointment in foster homes.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an application to be filled out by all adopters. We require 3 references plus a vet reference as well as a home visit.Once you have been approved for adoption by filling out an application completing a home visit and having your references checked, we will put you in touch with the foster to meet the dog with your family. Sometimes we will do a home visit and bring the dog to the home visit after your application is approved.

Our adoption fee is $300 for adult dogs, unaltered pups under 6 months require an additional $50 "refundable" spay/neuter contract fee.
