Story
Lots of love in a small package with our girl TINA! This beautiful 7 month old petite girl weighs 22 lbs., is spayed, microchipped, housebroken, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, walks great on a leash and knows basic commands. We do NOT think she will get much larger in size. She truly is the sweetest puppy and is wonderful with children. Tina loves to play with other dogs, is super affectionate and super social. Tina would be happiest in a home with another dog for her to play with. She has a shiny brown coat and is simply stunning. She will be your new best friend and will be an amazing family dog. A FULLY FENCED FRONT OR BACK YARD IS REQUIRED. We adopt within 30 minutes of Wyckoff, Wayne, Dumont and Glen Rock NJ and Huntington NY. We will consider other locations based on our availability to conduct a home visit in your area.

Story
Meet Chelsea, our adorable 2-year-old female Corgi, rescued from a puppy mill! She's looking for her forever home, and we couldn't be more excited to introduce her to you! Chelsea is current on her vaccines and microchipped but has not been spayed due to lack of surgery appointments. Personality: This sweet girl is full of love and affection. She absolutely adores other dogs and gets along well with them. Currently, she's being fostered with two other dogs and is thriving in their company. She's also living with three foster cats and is in the process of learning how to interact with them. With patience and guidance, she's making great progress! Training: Chelsea is currently learning to walk on a leash. She's a smart and eager learner, and with consistent training, she'll become a pro in no time!  Energy Level: This little one is a high-energy dog who loves to stay active. She'll thrive with an adopter who can provide her with plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. Whether it's long walks, playtime at the park, or engaging in fun activities, she'll be your perfect companion for all your adventures! Ideal Home: Chelsea will need a home with another dog and a completely fenced in yard is required (no electric fences). Having a furry friend will not only provide her with companionship but also help her continue her journey towards becoming the best dog she can be. Patience and Trust: It's important to note that Chelsea is still learning to trust people. She has had a difficult past, and it will take time for her to fully open up. Therefore, we are looking for a patient and understanding adopter who can provide her with the love, care, and patience she needs to feel safe and secure. Adoption Details: If you're interested in adopting Chelsea and giving her the loving home she deserves, please reach out to us at petresqinc.org to fill out an adoption application. We can't wait to hear from you and help make this adorable girl a part of your family!April 16, 2024, 9:46 am

Story
Meet Pebbles, your soon-to-be loyal and affectionate companion! At just five months old, I'm a charming 18-pound black lab mix eagerly awaiting my journey from Kentucky to New Jersey. My early days were a bit rough, as I was discovered alongside my four siblings, all alone and in need of love and care. Thankfully, we were rescued and have been receiving heaps of love ever since. I'm a bright and eager learner, ready to tackle all the joys and challenges of puppyhood by your side. From mastering housebreaking to learning new tricks, I'm excited to grow and thrive with the guidance of a patient and loving family. Plus, being so young, I'm open to forming bonds with children, other dogs, and even cats! Rest assured, I'm up to date on all my age-appropriate vaccines, setting me off on the right paw towards a healthy future. However, as my new family, you'll be responsible for completing my remaining vaccinations and ensuring I'm spayed at the appropriate time. If you're ready to welcome Pebbles into your heart and home, take the first step by applying for adoption at www.peace4paws.org. Please note that applications must be submitted via laptop or computer. I can't wait to meet you and become your cuddly companion for life! If you have specific adoption or foster questions, please email: judy.atchison@yahoo.com THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN RESCUING A DOG!
