Story
Marshall is a gorgeous fluffy white and black dog. He's friendly to all and has done fine with other dogs. He has an independent play style (live and let live.) He's a big dog at 73 lbs but still considers himself a lap dog. He's a good medium energy dog and playful. He loves chasing a ball and running around doing zoomies. Marshall would love to have a yard to run around in. Once he gets his energy out, he plops down and if a lap is available that's where he'll be. He's very sweet and gentle. He knows his sit command and he's calm, even-tempered , affectionate and treat motivated which makes him highly trainable. Marshall needs a home with people who understand he enjoys play time and cuddle time in equal measure. (He's a big believer in a balanced life style.) Marshall combines good looks and a loving personality all in one. He'll make a fantastic companion, a hiking, walking running , adventure buddy, followed by some cuddle time in your lap. What's not to love? Age: 3 years Weight: 73 lb Temperament: Good with dogs and older sturdy kids as he needs to learn not to jump up, Training: Knows commands: sit. Housetraining unknown currently in a shelter. Vetting: neutered, up to date on vaccines, HW negative For questions, please email: nlherna@emory.edu ​ To ensure we're meeting both pet and adopters' needs, we ask potential adopters to complete an Adoption Application (www.bit.ly/DH-Adoption) for caretakers to review.

Story
Excelsis is a beautiful Shepherd/Border Collie mix who is about 12 years old and 65 lbs, looking for her forever home. Celsie, as she is lovingly called at EHR, would be a great companion for a dog savvy owner. She needs a family that will work with her on manners. She is playful and energetic, but has a timid side around people she doesn't know. Celsie has learned "sit" and "off" and is currently working on leash manners. She is dog friendly but not good with cats. Celsie would do best in a home with adults who are willing to give her the one-on-one attention she has been waiting for. If you would like to meet this beautiful girl, please fill out an application and ask for Excelsis! If you cannot adopt her but would like to give her a foster home, please fill out a dog foster application!  May 20, 2024, 11:02 pm

Story
FOREVER HOME NEEDED!! Kubo came to us in 2020, and was adopted relatively quickly! Unfortunately, his owners could not handle Kubo and it led to them needing to return him. He was terrified upon being back at the kennel, a completely different dog than what had came to us originally. We found Kubo a wonderful foster home where he has been for 2 years! He never receives ANY interest We are now desperate. Kubo's foster is returning to work and will not have enough time to care for him. This poor boy needs his FOREVER home ASAP!!! Kubo is a very smart 5 year old cuddle bug. He LOVES to cuddle on his person and be around them. He has been undergoing training and has come such a long way. Kubo is good with other dogs but can be very vocal when seeing them outside which is part of what his training has consisted of. He would do amazing in a lower traffic home with adults/older teens If you are interested in Kubo, visit EHRDOGS.ORG and fill out an application for KUBOMay 20, 2024, 11:02 pm

Story
Meet Dottie! Doesn’t she look trim and fit? 😳 Believe it or not, this is after already losing 5lbs since coming into our care a few weeks ago. Dottie was a whopping 35lbs on arrival, probably double her ideal weight! She looks like a giant chihuahua who ate 10 other chihuahuas, or a mini border collie someone put in a baler to compress into a compact little square for easy storage 🤣 Medical testing has revealed she does have an excuse for her severe obesity besides just clearly having access to all-you-can-eat buffets… she has Cushing’s disease which was causing her excess hunger as well as obsessive thirst. Luckily it’s easily treated and managed with daily pills longterm and regular bloodwork monitoring, and we are hopeful she will live a normal lifespan as long as she continues to lose weight and get back into good health. Dottie is a joyful happy little 8-10 year old “young at heart” senior. She’s great with other dogs and has always lived with them, very friendly with all people, a star patient at the vet, and loves playing with and fetching squeaky toys. We haven’t seen a mean bone in her squishy little body, or seen or felt any bones for that matter 🩻. She’s pretty active or at least wants to be- right now she tires easily and starts turning blue and snorting and grunting with any exercise or heat. But hopefully if her weight loss continues, by the end of the summer she will be in shape enough to enjoy some fall hikes and fun times with her new people. She would be a great addition to just about any home that will enjoy her infectious happiness and fun personality, always looking up at you with a smile and ready to accompany you anywhere- a walk, car ride, nap, or just making sure you don’t have to go to the bathroom alone. And of course someone who will keep her toy basket full and doesn’t mind finding squeaky toys all over the house and continue her on her medication longterm. Email njwoof@cs.com to meet Dottie in Northern NJ Since COVID-19, we are no longer holding our Sunday adoption events until further notice, but we are scheduling meet and greet appointments with a specific dog or dogs at our meeting spots in Northern NJ. To streamline adoptions, all communication before, during, and after the adoption process is done through email only: we have limited volunteers able to return phone calls. Submit an application from our website www.secondchance.petfinder.com to speed up the adoption process and email any questions to us at njwoof@cs.com. Please check your email regularly for next steps. All our dogs reside in foster care in Northern NJ until adoption and we do not have a central shelter location. We are a small all-volunteer organization focused on rescuing local dogs from area shelters, as well as accepting some surrenders and puppy mill rescues.

Make A Difference in your Community - Adopt a Shelter Dog! Would you like to foster a Shelter Survivor? For more information, visit us at www.sheltersurvivors.com ***Ali is not available for adoption at this time. She is having hip surgery and needs time to recover with her foster family. Please read the entire description about Ali.*** ***If you are not in the position to adopt a dog, but you'd like to donate towards Ali's surgery, please go to our website to donate or you can Venmo us @Sheltersurvivors-8 Thank you for your continued support! Meet sweet Ali! Ali is a year old, beautiful Border Collie that was surrendered to us when her owner could no longer care for her. Ali's owner bought her when she was 8 weeks old. She injured herself and suddenly it seemed as though her owner had no time for her. We are not exactly sure how Ali injured herself, but her owner declined care at his vet's office. We were told by the owner that she was healed and running around as usual without any issues. The owner tried rehoming Ali himself, but he had no luck. He started calling around to see what his options may be and looked into possible euthanasia for Ali. One of our foster volunteers was contacted by one of our vet partners and we immediately took action to get Ali into our care. Upon meeting Ali, we noticed that she was not able to put weight on one of her legs. While we knew this injury could end up needing a costly surgery, we could not turn our backs on this sweet girl. Ali was shy when we first met her. She would crouch close to the ground and slither into your arms to give kisses. Our hearts melted. Once in her foster home, she immediately became comfortable and attached herself to her foster mom and dad. Ali seemed to know that she was now safe and loved. She was taken to the vet the next day and we found out that she needs hip surgery. Her surgery is scheduled and she will soon have a pain free hip. She will then go through an eight to twelve week recovery period with her foster family. Once cleared, she will be able to run and play just as a year old puppy should be able to. Ali is a sweet girl with so much love to give. She gets along well with other dogs. She loves people! She is extremely friendly. Keep in mind that she is a "working" dog and will need a home that is familiar with the breed and their needs. She may develop "herding" tendencies. ***She will not be available for adoption until she is cleared by the vet and fully recovered.*** We expect to receive a high volume of applications for Ali, so if you are interested in Ali, please fill out the application in its entirety to be considered. Ali is spayed, up to date with her vaccines, microchipped and housebroken. To adopt Ali, please complete our online dog application by going to sheltersurvivors.com Click on the home page, look for "Application" at the top of the home page, and complete the application. Hit the submit button once you have completed the application in its entirety. This will expedite the adoption process. Adoption Fee: $400.00
