  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less

Meet Sweet Potato! This sweet girl is an adorable 3 year old, 5lb chi mix. She has the cutest little markings which makes it look like she has white socks on and is as sweet as her name. She is great with dogs, cats and older children (she can be a little shy at first). Poor sweet potato had a rough start to life. She was surrendered from an abusive situation and is still gaining back her trust for people. She came into rescue covered in fleas and ticks and because of this she does have a few bald patches still. Despite this, she is super loving.She is still working on house training but she is a smart girl who will do well with a routine.

Want to adopt a FWFP pup? Fill out our online adoption application by visiting our website: http://www.friendswithfourpaws.org/adoption-form.html

**Please note that our dogs may be located in foster homes around NJ and the NYC area. It would be a great help to us if you can pick up your dog from transport, (which is located in Astoria) or foster home.**

**PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER IN YOUR INQUIRY** We put a lot of time and energy into processing our adoptions to find our babies the best fit home for them. Please do not submit an inquiry if you are not serious about adopting. We are so excited to work with you to find you a new forever friend, and appreciate you working with us. For immediate consideration, please attach your application to the initial inquiry to help us expedite the process.

Our adoption fee is $475. This includes their spay/neuter surgery, full (age appropriate) vaccinations, microchip insertion and registration, deworming, heartworm testing and prevention, flea and tick prevention and travel expenses.

All of our dogs are rescued from local shelters and the general public. Each dog is then placed in a foster home where it is kept for a minimum of 2 weeks for quarantine, to ensure if the dog gets sick it can receive proper treatment. After the 2 week quarantine time they are spayed/neutered and fully vetted. They are then placed on the website. We have foster homes in the NJ/NY area waiting to receive their fosters. Once an animal has received an application or there's an adopter interested in it, we make arrangements with the waiting foster to pick the animal up from the airport to then meet with the potential adopter. Thank you in advance for your patience with our process and for making adoption YOUR option!

Our Adoption Process...

All of our animals are initially pulled from local shelters and the general public, placed in foster care, fully vetted (spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, flea/tick/heartworm prevention and testing, deworming, microchip) and all pets come with a free 30 days pet insurance policy. If an adopter is interested in a specific pet, they can fill out an application and/or send an email to our main contact and one of our volunteers will get back with them shortly. Then once the application is processed we will set up a meeting for the adopter and the dog to see if they are each a good fit for each other. Our adoption fee is $475.
