Sending Shelter/Rescue:

Name(s) of your foster pet 
Brief description of your foster pet (coloring, short or long coat, size, etc.)
Male, blonde, short hair, approximately 15 lbs
What makes your foster delightful/special?
Frankie is a very loving dog.  He likes to sit in my lap, or sit where he can be in close proximity to me.  He is playful, and loves to give doggie kisses.  Frankie is also very intelligent.  He picks up routines quickly (eg. which is his food bowl versus other dog's food bowls)and understands when I tell him to 'No'.  He is also a great watch dog.  No one came into my yard without him letting me know someone was there.
Cute things your foster does that could be endearing or a personality point that would make people want to meet him/her.  
Frankie is a sweet dog that loves his toys.  Especially squeeky toys, or toys that make some kind of noise.  He loves to run in the backyard.  He loves long walks and or jogging.  I jog a slow 2 miles, and Frankie could keep on going after I stop!  He's has walked up to four miles a day with me, and keeps on going like the energize bunny!
What kinds of activities does your foster like most? 
 Running and playing outside, playing with his toys, chewing on bones.  His favorite activity is sitting on my lap and getting belly rubs!
What kinds of routines does you have for your foster? 
I feed him him every 12 hours.
What help or special needs does your foster require?  
Frankie is still a young male, and is at a stage where he likes to chew.  I provide him with toys and bones, but whomever takes him needs to understand that Frankie will chew shoes or anything else left on the floor that is chewable.  I've been working with him, but he needs more training.
Does your foster like dogs? 
Yes.  I have two other small dogs and they get along fine.  There is normal growling that occurs if one dog has a bone and the other one wants it.  But other than food/bone growling, he gets along well with the other dogs.
Does your foster like cats? 
He chases my cat and barks.  The cat avoids him. Maybe over time they would get along, not enough time has passed to let the relationship develop.
Is your foster DOG housetrained?
 Yes.  He's had a couple accidents, but appears to be housetrained.
Is your foster DOG crate trained? 
 I put him in the crate, but he didn't like it, so I let him out.
Is your foster DOG a fence climber 
 Not that I observed.  I have a fence, and he seemed more happy just running around the backyard.
Is your foster fearful of:  
Is your foster scared of thunderstorms or fireworks?  
I had a couple of major storms come through and he seemed fine.
Does your foster like children?  
He would see children when we went out to walk, and wanted to be petted and loved on by children.
Does your foster have separation anxiety? 
Not sure.  Like most dogs, he's just super happy when I get home!
How social is your foster with new people? Please describe your foster's behavior when they meet new people.
Frankie likes most people, and is very sociable.  I have noticed that he is more alert and will bark at grown males, but once introduced, is fine.
How social is your foster with people they know? Please describe how your fosters behaves with people already known.
Not had a chance to observe.

In a brief paragraph how would you describe your foster?
Frankie, overall, is just a love bug that likes to give kisses and sit in your lap.  He is a highly energetic dog that will need a back yard to run in, or a family who likes to jog or walk with him on leash.  He likes other dogs too. He is very smart, and is a great guard dog.  He is a boy that likes his toys and bones, and will play with them and entertain himself!

About Burlington County Animal Alliance

About Our Rescue Group...

We are the Burlington County Animal Alliance (BCAA)located in Central New Jersey. We are a non-profit organization 501(3)(c), all volunteer rescue that saves animals from our local shelter and surrounding areas of New Jersey that are in danger of being euthanized. We take them into our program, get them the necessary medical care they need and adopt them back out to loving forever homes. We have 60 volunteers, many that open their homes to foster the homeless animals, we do fundraisers to raise money so we can continue to save the dogs and cats in need. We run strictly on donations from our adoptions and people who support our work.BCAA adopts to families in New Jersey, parts of Southeastern Pennsylvania and parts of New York.

We have weekly adoption events at PetsMart every Saturday from 11:00 am till 2:00 pm at the Eastgate Square Shopping Center, Rt. 38, Moorestown, NJ and PetsMart, 62 Centerton Rd, Mount Laurel, NJ 08054.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with the applicant filling out an adoption application for the pet they are interested in. When they have completed and submitted the application, the screening process is started, which consists of a vet check, phone interview and home visit. Once all the steps are completed, we determine, by our findings, if they are approved, and if so, then they are allowed to adopt from our organization. The final step is they must complete the adoption contract, along with the donation for the animal, which goes into our medical fund to defray their medical costs. All of our animals are spayed and neutered, up to date on all their shots, including rabies, they are parasite free and on heartworm preventative.
