found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
UPDATE: Cricket slept quietly in her crate through the night. She went for several walks today - her leash manners are improving already. She gets excited when she sees people. She wants to meet everyone- probably because she knows they will tell her how beautiful she is with her gorgeous eyes. The new skill she is working on is sitting and waiting patiently before exiting any door. Her house manners are wonderful-no accidents or destructive behavior. As of now she is a little overly friendly with her foster siblings who are still getting used to a new dog in the house. She thinks everyone should immediately love her.
UPDATE: Cricket is a well balanced dog-everything you could want in a companion. In the house she likes her play time- with others or by herself. She knows when it is quiet time and will snuggle on the couch or sit at your feet. She also understands when it is time to stay out of the way as the humans go about their daily routine. She will settle down nicely without getting in the way. She isn't bothered by movements or noises. At meal time she sits patiently as food is being dished out and is respectful of the other dogs. While very interested in human food she understands to keep her distance. Outside she likes to play in the yard. Then when she needs a rest she will just sit pretty and take in all the sights, smells, and sounds. Cricket is always up for a good walk. She still pulls on the leash when she wants to meet someone but is getting better. Tonight after a long day of playing and walking she decided to call it a night at 9:15 and went to lay down in her crate.
UPDATE: Cricket has already earned full freedom of the house. She can be trusted to be left alone uncrated for short periods of time during the day. At night she no longer has to be crated although she still may choose to sleep there. She is just WONDERFUL in the house. Yesterday on her walk she was calm and gentle as she met several children. Today she went to the vet for a checkup. Again, her behavior was commendable. Everyone who meets her remarks how beautiful she is.
UPDATE: I continue to be amazed at how good this dog is! Cricket had a busy weekend. She went for a trip upstate NY and was great in the car for the 2 hour trip. She transferred her excellent house manners to the new environment. She was disappointed that the big stuffed bear was not a toy for her to play with even though she did look cute walking around the house with it. Her one negative so far is that she likes to pull the stuffing out of toys. Fortunately she is much kinder and gentler with rubber squeaky toys. Cricket is getting along very well with the resident dogs. This is impressive because the dogs are completely opposite in temperament and energy level. She spent some time with 8 & 12 year old kids. Cricket spent most of the time showering them with kisses. Cricket can get along with anybody.

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 appointments will be scheduled after your application is approved. 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. *****
