Story
Update: Little Indiana Jones really had us fooled. We thought he was too young, friendly and normal to have ended up with our rescue. But as we have gotten to know him better, his inner demon dog has emerged. 👹. This 8lb maltese definitely has a dark side that can rival even our master of evil, Ray (literally, they have had a couple fence fight show downs and he does NOT back down 🤦‍♀️). Overall he’s a happy guy, tail always wagging and demanding attention. We suspect he was kept caged or crated a lot or teased behind a fence, as most of his ferocity seems connected to being behind a barrier or put in a crate. He was a scrawny hungry guy when we got him and has gained weight, but still thinks he has to protect his food so will need to continue to learn that being approached when eating means chicken or cheese will rain from the sky, not that you are going to fight him for his kibble. Trying to tell him what to do or stop him from doing what he wants will be met with a flash of (now pearly white after his dental cleaning) fangs 🦷 and some possessed-sounding noises 😖. Luckily Indiana is very praise and food motivated, so it’s just a matter of tricking him into thinking he wants to do the things you want him to do and rewarding him for doing them, rather than trying to best him a duel of any sort. Typical dude, you have to make him think he’s outsmarted you and got his own way but that it was his idea all along. 😜 He likes meeting other dogs of all sizes, though might be best living as an only dog, unless you have a chill tolerant dog who won’t mind this tiny Napoleon’s laws and creeds. Kids are a definite no for him, he would have no tolerance for their behavior and having to fend off bratty children could definitely be part of why he is the way he is. Indiana Jones is about 4-6 years old we believe, almost a solid 9lbs now that he’s a healthier weight, and should have many years to possess your home and soul. If you like little dogs with big personalities, email njwoof@cs.com to meet him in Northern NJ This intrepid little guy was exploring the woods all by himself and no one ever came looking for him 🤷‍♀️. He’s a friendly little Maltese, skinny at just under 8 lbs and we think somewhere between 3-6 years old. He barks at first but quickly warms up and likes attention and walks. He likes other dogs too, a bit too much actually- since he wasn’t neutered he can’t keep his mind out of the gutter around them if you know what we mean 😉 He should be much more pleasant around them once his hormones settle from tomorrow’s neuter 👋 👋 ⚾️ 🏀. He does go to the bathroom outside when walked but may have some accidents/mark and need a belly band initially. He seems like a nice easy going little guy for the most part and will be a sweet little companion. Email njwoof@cs.com to meet him in northern NJ by appointment Due to COVID-19, we will not be holding our Sunday adoption events until further notice, but we can schedule socially distant appointments with a specific dog outdoors at our vet’s office: VCA Morris Plains Animal Hospital 3009 Rt 10 East Morris Plains (Denville on GPS) NJ 07950 Now is the perfect time to open your home to a needy dog! Submit an application from our website www.secondchance.petfinder.com to speed up the adoption process All our dogs reside in foster care in Northern NJ until adoption. 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.

Story
Little young senior Lulu got some disappointing medical news… the lump she had removed was cancerous 😞 This 8 year old Maltese/chihuahua had never been spayed before, resulting in a small mammary tumor. The good news is she’s spayed now, her chest x-rays showed no sign of any spread, and it was a low grade tumor hopefully caught early enough. But she will need to be monitored for recurrence or spread. She’s otherwise healthy and has been a very sweet little girl once she bonds, but can be distrustful of strangers and protect her person. All 8 pound personal bodyguard of her 🫡 She’s fine with other dogs and looking for an adult home where she will be loved unconditionally for the rest of her life. Email njwoof@cs.com to meet Lulu in Northern NJ Meet Lulu! We were told this tiny 8 year old scruffy girl was “not friendly” and she was handed to us muzzled, but as soon as we walked her away from her owner she warmed right up to us and has been a sweetheart ever since! She may show more protective tendencies as she settles in a new home of course, so is looking for a lower key adult home that’s ok with a little feisty side. Once she loves you she loves you unconditionally, asks to be picked up and dances for attention all the time. She’s only 8lbs and said to be a Maltese/chihuahua mix, good with other small dogs and a cuddly loyal little lapdog once she bonds and feels safe. Please email njwoof@cs.com to meet Lulu 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.

Story
Milano is a very sweet little guy with some very big medical issues! This 7 year old maltese mix has never really had proper medical care. He came to us with a heart murmur, nails so long they were curling all the way around, unneutered and with a large perianal hernia causing him to have a hard time going to the bathroom. He's going to our vet for a full work up, but his recovery and treatment/management of his issues will take a while. We would love to find a committed local foster that can take care of him through his surgeries and treatments so he doesn't need to recover at the shelter, and bring him back for his medical follow ups. He's been a very sweet agreeable guy, has lived with dogs and cats previously and is social and sweet meeting people. He's under 10lbs full grown. Please submit a foster or adoption application if you would like to open your home permanently or temporarily to little Milano Primary Color: White Weight: 9.75 Age: 7yrs 0mths 4wks

Story
Meet Shapo! Shapo is an 8 pound maltese and is 3 to 4 years old. Shapo is really such a great little guy to be around! He is very sweet and kind natured. Shapo is crate trained and potty trained and does well on a leash. He has been great with all of the other doggy friends he has met. Shapo loves to hang out with the other dogs but is also perfectly content hanging out on the couch or bed with his humans. Shap0 had a dental cleaning and bloodwork at his recent vet visit. Interested in becoming a forever home for Shapo Dell? For immediate consideration, please fill out our online adoption application: http://www.friendswithfourpaws.org/adoption-form.html This is the first step in our process, and we DO NOT go any further without an application. If there are multiple dogs that you are interested in, please fill out an application for each dog. This does not include bonded pairs, one application will be fine. We have different adoption coordinators working with different dogs, and your application may be missed if you only apply once. Find more adoptable pets, news and information on Instagram @friendswithfourpaws or our Facebook page Friends with Four Paws . We put a lot of time and energy into processing our adoptions to find our babies the best fit home for them and you. Please do not submit an application if you are not serious about adopting Shapo Dell. We are so excited to work with you to find you a new forever friend, and Shapo Dell the perfect forever home, and appreciate you working with us. Our adoption fee is $525. This includes their spay/neuter surgery, full (age appropriate) vaccinations, microchip insertion and registration, deworming, heartworm testing and prevention, flea and tick prevention and travel expenses. All of our dogs are rescued from local shelters and the general public. Each dog is then placed in a foster home where he/she is kept for quarantine, to ensure if the dog gets sick it can receive proper treatment. We have foster homes in the NJ/NY area waiting to receive their fosters. Once an animal has received an application or there's an adopter interested, we make arrangements for transport. If a dog is already in foster care in NYC/NJ, an adopter will be put in touch with the foster home AFTER an application is being processed. Thank you in advance for your patience with our process and for making adoption YOUR option!
