Beautiful Boston Terrier Mix Seeks Quiet, Adults Only Home in NJ - All Supplies Included

Hi, My name is Benny!

There is a $75 Adoption Fee - All Supplies Included

If you are looking for the best little dog in New Jersey to add love, laughter, joy and companionship to your life and home – I’m all ears!

I am a young, very healthy mix of Boston Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier and Chihuahua, and one of the most devoted, intelligent, charming and sensitive little dogs you will ever meet.

I combine the best qualities of the breeds that go into my mix. I am a snuggle bunny who loves cuddling on your lap more than anything. I can be playful and fun at times, but I am sensible and sweet more often than anything.

I have been cherished since I was 8 weeks old by my owner, who loves me so very much. She has taken wonderful care of me, and helped me blossom into the magnificent pet you see before you. Things in her life have changed in the past year, and she is traveling extensively, and for long periods of time.

I love her so much, and having to be away from her when she is gone has been very difficult for me. I am not myself, and she notices it. She wants what is best for me, and we both feel that an owner who can spend all their time with me would be better.

We are hoping to find a loving, forever home with retired folks who are looking for a very devoted companion. I am a real nature lover, so would prefer to live in a more rural, country environment. I need a home with people who stay home, or who work only part time.

I take my time feeling comfortable with new people so I do need folks who understand that they will have to let me get used to them and my new surroundings. I will be skittish at first, but will come around in my own time. Patience will definitely be needed, and will be rewarded when I open my heart to you and show you what a sensitive, sweet, gentle devoted and charming little dog I am.

I get along quite well with other dogs and cats, so long as they are good with me. Children make me nervous, so I am not a good match for people with kids under age 12.

Please offer me a loving, forever home today. I can’t wait to meet you.

Love and licks,

About Atlantic City Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our website at

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
