*** COURTESY POST ***
Peggy is a one year old female Lab Hound mix breed, rescued from the South Korean dog meat trade. She was one of 70 dogs rescued in 2017 from a junkyard that makes money from recycling and selling scrap. Located in a huge warehouse, it was found that the junkyard also raised and sold dogs for meat. Peggy was born into total darkness in the warehouse, almost like a cave. She never saw light, felt rays of sunshine on her back, or knew anything other than a tiny cage raised above ground. She had to slowly be exposed to light as to not hurt her eyes and potentially blind them. Peggy lived in horrible caged conditions and starved. She was extremely nervous and didn't understand the world that she just now saw for the first time.
Peggy traveled a long journey and arrived in the USA in April 2017. Her personality and trust grows everyday. Peggy is a sporty girl who likes to play ball, the perfect outgoing companion for an active family. She is also great with other dogs. Peggy bonds incredibly strongly with her ‘special person’, so becomes worried when she is left alone for too long. She needs an understanding owner who can work with her to become more independent and who has time to be home with her for part of the day. Peggy is ready for her well deserved forever family.

About Southern Paws Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Southern Paws Inc. is a Non-Profit organization that works very closely with southern rescue groups to provide needed homes for dogs in the Southern United States. Through our program we also work to help them gain needed resources and funding that is strongly lacking in the south. It is our goal to not only provide loving homes for these dogs but to also help better shelters and shelter life in the South. We work specifically with rescue groups in Louisiana and Mississippi which is where our dogs are currently located. All of our dogs are adopted on a pre-adoption basis and then transported to NJ after the adoption process is complete. Upon arrival they go into a 24-48 hour monitoring period, where we make sure that they have made it through transport safe, happy, and healthy. After that time period, these dogs go into their forever home. It is a long journey but it is well worth the trip. There is an adoption fee on our dogs. This fee is a reimbursement for all of the services that we have provided to the dog being adopted. We put all of our dogs through a very stringent vetting process, deworm them multiple times, run fecal exams, spay & neuter, vaccinate and have them checked multiple times by the vet. Before they are transported, each of our dogs must receive a health certificate clearing them for travel. This fee also helps us cover the cost of transport and any other medical attention the dog may require upon arrival. The adoption fee for all of our dogs is $450.00. Because almost all of our dogs are pre-adopted there is no meet and greet process with our dogs. If you must meet the dog before you adopt then that is totally understandable, however we may not be the best program for you. We do have a back up program just in case a dog doesn't do well in his new home. In that case the pup goes back into foster care and will be put up for adoption again in the state of NJ.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is very simple.

1) A phone call with one of our representatives to find out what it is that you are looking for, what your home is like, and who lives there. We then try to make sure that the dog you are interested in, is going to be a perfect match for your household.
2) You are emailed an application which is filled out and then scanned back to us.
3) It normally takes a couple of days for an application to be processed, but once approved we do a home check.
4) Adoption fee is $450.00. This is a reimbursement for all that we have done your dog. This fee covers all of their vetting, vaccinations, spay/neuter, health certificate and evaluation, and their cost of transport.
