PLEASE ONLY DO A APPLICATION IF YOUR READY TO ADOPT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!

Roxy is up to date on vaccines and physical she is super healthy. I’m looking for someone willing to adopt roxy and show her a lot of love and care like I do I unfortunately am not able to keep her any longer because we don’t have enough time to take care of her as much as she needs our schedule is super busy between work and school and it just makes it very difficult to manage it all. I don’t want to see her go because she is the best puppy anyone can ever ask for but I do need to do what’s best for her. We got her from a breeder we have all her paperwork as well.

Story
Meet Spot in Mays Landing! He is a very handsome blue merle Aussie blend that was rescued from an Oklahoma shelter. He is neutered, current on immunizations and on preventatives. He is learning both sit and down commands. He just started playing with balls and chewing on Kong's. He is a super love bug and climbs up on the recliner to sleep on your lap. He really seems to love everyone he meets. Spot is a pistol! He is a hopper and leaper. Plays rough with the other dogs in the home but backs off when they say enough. He is NOT good with cats. He does not have great recall and pulls hard on leash, so he needs work in that area. He will bolt through doors. He needs a very active person to keep his mind and body busy. He is people friendly and gets excited and may knock over small children, so older children are recommended. Spot is very food motivated and learns quickly. He kennels quietly all night and when we go out like a good boy. He is housebroken and has had no accidents inside. If you think that Spot is a great match for your family, please fill out the application. Here is the link: https://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application There is an additional $20 microchip fee which includes registration and transfer to his new family. All adoption fees are used to rescue dogs in need.

Story
Courtesy Post: Owner Surrender/Rehoming- Matawan, NJ Milo is an 2 year old Australian Shepherd and weighs 50 lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots, and on heartworm prevention. Milo can be people selective. He can be fearful and show some aggression when he first meets someone and doesn’t click with them right away. He prefers women over men. He is good with cats and dogs! No children, due to his reactivity! Milo is housebroken, but isn’t crate-trained. He will need positive reinforcement and training to help him improve with his reactivity. The current owner is surrendering him because he is primarily their daughter’s dog and she is unable to take care of him, because she is going to college. He needs to find a new furever home as soon as possible! If you think you can provide a great home for Milo, please contact the owner listed below. There is a $150 rehoming fee to assure good folks with good intentions. This fee will be donated to Australian Shepherds Furever for their assistance in placing Milo.

Story
Meet Simba! He is almost 3 years old and is a Peagle, a designer breed that takes the worst of a beagle and mixes it with the worst of a pekingese and gets you Simba! He is barky like a beagle and snappy like a pekingese! Simba has some history of behavior problems, and is looking for his forever home that will love him with all his faults. He does have a bite history with his previous family, and is only a candidate for an experienced adopter. He does get along with other dogs, and loves to play, but will also guard his toys, bones, and food as well as his bed or crate from other dogs as well as people. He has had no bites since moving to his current foster home 8 months ago, where many precautions are taken to ensure everyone stays safe. Simba does have a senior friend named Denver, he is a beagle mix as well. Denver is a dog's dog and doesn't much care for people, so if you are up to the challenge, Denver would love a home with Simba to call his own, for the time he has left! Simba's new home will be required to have a yard, as well as no children or cats.
