Story
Josie - 1-2yr female terrier mix, 30 lbs Personal style: Emo eyes & chin whiskers Occupation: lap warmer, squeak toy tester, neighborhood watch Looking for: available lap, fenced in yard, to fill that void in your life, someone who doesn’t mind a gal with a little facial hair Likes: squeaky toys, playing ball, tug of war, long walks in the fenced in yard, hide & seek with chipmunks, french fries, cheerios & ice cubes (you must pay the ice tax!), naps on the couch, sleeping with mom & dad, car rides Dislikes: dogs who bark at me (they’re scary! would need a meet & greet with other dogs in the home. What are cats?) cheese, some treats, long times without my humans Family: I prefer my siblings a little older, recommended approximately age 9-10 & older, but I have plenty of snuggles to share Bad Habit: what’s yours is mine (aka your lap, bed, personal space and heart), zoomies before bed Goals for Personal Growth: working on crate training as I’m a free spirit, but is ok for short periods. crates are a little scary, but I’m getting used to it! I’m working on leash walking and impulse control, as long as I’m rewarded with cheerios & love! Best Quality: playful and loving Please go to www.coldnosewarmheart.org/apply-now.html

Story
Meet Xavier (m) and Helena (f) They are 3 month old Chihuahua/Jack Russell Mixes. They are expected to be 10-15 lbs when full grown. Mom is an 8 lb Chihuahua Mix and Dad is unknown but we do know that these pups were surrendered from a home in VA that only had small dogs. They are typical puppies that love to eat, play and sleep. They have been in their Foster Home with their Mama since they were 1 week old. They are sweet, playful, happy puppies that love to play with each other and their Mama. They are typical Chihuahua’s that will shake when cold and/or nervous. Because of their small size and nervous tendencies we do not recommend homes with children younger than 8 years old. They are paper trained but have not been outside due to their tiny size. They have their own puppy room in their Foster Home so there has not been a need to Crate them. They are quiet puppies that sleep all night. They also love to be held and cuddled. They are Microchipped, UTD on their age appropriate vaccinations. If you are interested in adopting one of these sweet, tiny pups please go to our website and submit an application. www.coldnosewarmheart.org

Story
Who can resist that face!? This is Cosmo. He is a very smart boy and loves to talk to you when you ask him questions. Cosmo is housebroken and enjoys his crate for downtime. He loves to play with other dogs but is pretty playful, so I would recommend a sibling who enjoys that if he's going to have one. He loves ANY kind of toy and you may throw out your arm playing fetch. This poor boy was born with an issue at the base of his tail, so he recently had it docked so that he'll have a better quality of life. It didn't phase him at all, and he's loving his new butt look! Cosmo is a real love and will do best with someone to pay him lots of attention and will benefit from puppy training. http://www.coldnosewarmheart.org/dog-application.html @cnwhnj @coldnosewarmheartnj

Story
Scout is an adorable and lively 9-month-old black and white mix. His friendly nature makes him a perfect companion for children of all ages, and his love for playing with other dogs ensures he'll be a great fit for any family. Scout's intelligence shines through in his trainability; he's already house-trained and responds to commands such as sit, lay, and let's go. He is responsive to affection and is easily motivated by treats. While he enjoys a good play session outdoors, Scout is just as content relaxing indoors, making him a versatile companion for a variety of lifestyles. His infectious energy and loving personality will undoubtedly make Scout a wonderful addition to any loving home. http://www.coldnosewarmheart.org/dog-application.html @cnwhnj @coldnosewarmheartnj
