BEN's Story...
Ben is the most adorable 17.5 pound boy! He was an outdoor dog whom was left on a chain. At one time he lived in a home, then he was stuck outside. How anyone could leave him tied outside to a dog coop all day and night is really incredible to believe. He is a sweet, bouncy, playful 3 year old boy. When he was delivered to us, there were several older children at the rescue and they took turns walking Ben on a leash – he LOVED the kids! He is playful with toys and will playfully nip, although the foster is working to stop that behavior. On the ride home, he was a perfect gentleman in his crate in the back of the foster’s car. He just laid down in his crate and didn’t make a peep for the 25 minute ride to the foster’s home. Upon arrival to the foster’s home, Ben was taken out of the car and crate and he met the foster’s dog in the backyard. They sniffed each other, politely, and act as if they’ve known each other all their lives – they get along great. He walks very well on a leash and he seems to be housebroken, no accidents so far, he’s done all his business outside. He does seem familiar being indoors and has no problem with stairs. He comes when he’s called and he loves to be in your lap and next to you to give kisses. Ben is just a little doll! We will provide updates once Ben has time to settle in and we can discover more about him. UPDATE: Benny’s first night at the foster’s was a dream literally! He slept in his doggie bed in the kitchen (no crate) all night without a peep for the entire 8 hours and NO accidents. He was happy and playful ready to start his day. He went on a nice morning walk with the foster and her dog and did his business. When he came back to the house, he had a biscuit and a carrot and he settled down for the morning on the porch while we read the Sunday papers! What a good boy! If interested in adopting, please complete and submit an application.

This animal is currently fostered in a private home. Our rescue is 100% foster home based. We do not have a shelter or kennel. They are cared for by a loving family until adopted. Each pup has had their first vet exam, a shot, and de-worming, etc We make sure they have no fleas prior to going into our foster homes. They are fostered out of the shelter at least two weeks or more prior to adopting to monitor health. We take their care seriously!

Please note that the adoption event will take place on Sept 25th in Ridgewood, NJ. After your application is approved, we will contact you and arrange for you to meet the dog on that date. Once adopted, feel free to change the dog's name. You do not have to keep the name listed in this post.


IF YOU ADOPT a pup and live in the State of New Jersey we do have low cost spaying and neutering at very affordable prices. Kindly inquire upon an approved application. We also have an affordable program for out of state adopters.

We also offer low cost micro-chipping! For a low fee of only 20.00 we will have your dog microchipped. You will be able to register the microchip for a low cost fee of only 10.99 at the time of the adoption appointment. The 10.99 fee is a ONE time registration fee. The microchip is for the lifetime of the dog. You have the ability to update the contact information at NO cost. You will also have a one year membership to Home Again. This is a big savings for you.

***** If you're interested in fostering we could always use the help to save more animals. A crate, food, and medical care are provided. The animals are picked up in West Milford, NJ and brought back here for adoption. The time commitment is two to two and a half weeks. Please email letting us know what town you live in and we will forward information to you. *****

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BEN, a West Milford Wheaten Terrier/Cairn Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Wheaten Terrier/Cairn Terrier for sale in West Milford, or seeking a Wheaten Terrier/Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in West Milford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West Milford already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a West Milford breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Wheaten Terrier/Cairn Terrier breeders who help with Wheaten Terrier/Cairn Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West Milford paves the way for another one to be saved.
