Story
Meet Man Man! This adorable little old man is just the greatest! Yes, he's older.....but at 12, he still has so much spunk and sweetness, and he's planning on bringing all of his happiness to the lucky family that welcomes him into their lives. Man Man was turned in when his owner became ill and could no longer care for him. Let's first address those straggly teeth: Man Man underwent a dental just after these photos were taken and many of his broken teeth have been removed. He's feeling like a brand new boy! He wasn't letting much get him down before though, and he has a warm, sweet, loving little personality. Man Man is so happy to be scooped up and held, or to trot along beside you for a walk. He is so well-behaved, gentle, happy to take a treat or check out a new toy, and overjoyed to get your attention. Man Man is great with other easy going dogs and cats, and he's lived with everyone from toddlers to the elderly and was great with them all. He sure hopes you'll give him the home of his dreams! Call 609-693-1900 or email: office@ahsppz.org for an application. File#73890 7/5/24

Story
Matawan, NJ. Just look at this precious little Shih Tzu girl.'s sweet face She had an extremely traumatic experience that left one of her eyes hanging out of the socket by the muscle. It was horrendous, but the good news is........ After emergency surgery at an after-hours emergency vet clinic, she has recovered amazingly well and is now ready for adoption in NJ. She was so strong and such a little trooper through it all.. She is the absolute sweetest little angel, happy, extremely well behaved and house trained. You could not get a more wonderful addition to your family if you are wanting to adopt. She will need to be placed in an adult only home with possibly one small, docile dog. We do not want anything to happen to her remaining eye so we must be extra cautious in her placement/home environment. If you are interested in applying to adopt this ANGEL, please read the additional information below. All potential adopters must fill out applications and be approved before meeting the pet they are interested in adopting. To adopt one of the precious lives that we have saved, this rescue requires an approved application, a suitable home environment, a signed adoption contract, and an adoption fee. If approved to adopt, we expect applicants to pick up their new pets in person at the pet's foster location. Thank you for understanding that these dogs' welfare and quality of life, for the rest of their life, is our top priority and why we must be extremely diligent in their placement. If interested in adoption or fostering for us, please click the following links.....To apply to adopt, please click this link: http://tennesseetoyrescue.tripod.com/application.htm To apply to foster one of our rescue dogs or volunteer for PP, please click http://tennesseetoyrescue.tripod.com/fosterapp.html Submission instructions are at the bottom of the application.

Story
Meet Baby Valentine! This adorable Shih Tzu mix was named because he was surrendered on Valentine’s Day. Despite inheriting seizures from his dad, Baby Valentine is too busy being the happiest pup to notice! Baby Valentine needs to take his meds every day (one of them every eight hours—yes, he has a schedule!), but don’t worry—they're very inexpensive. He’s used to taking them without fuss and goes right back to playing with every toy he can find and running around with his foster sister, trying to show her that he’s just as big and brave as she is! He needs a special human who can keep up with his meds routine. Baby Valentine is a ball of energy who loves everyone and everything! Now, he’s looking for his forever home. Baby Valentine gets along great with other dogs, though he hasn't been tested with cats yet. He’s doing really well with leash training and is already pee pad trained. Plus, he’s getting the hang of using the bathroom outside. At only about 10 lbs, he’s a small pup who won’t grow much bigger. Baby Valentine loves car rides and enjoys going everywhere with his foster mom. If you’re looking for a buddy who will shower you with love every time he sees you, whether it’s been a minute or 5 hours, Baby Valentine is the one! Interested in adopting Valentine? Please visit www.huskyhouse.org today to fill out an application.   July 17, 2024, 1:05 pm

Story
Meet Bourbon! He’s a shih tzu mix (mom is a shih tzu, dad is a schnauzer) who was surrendered from a backyard breeder due to seizures. He takes inexpensive medication four times a day, but he’s not happy about it, so his foster mom continuously comes up with new ways to get him to take it. He’s doing great in his foster home with other small dogs. He’s a 6 pound ball of energy who loves to play, but he will also snuggle up on his foster mom’s lap. He loves toys!! He’s only had one seizure in the 6 weeks we’ve had him, because his meds needed adjusting. He hasn’t had any issues since. Interested in adopting Bourbon? Please visit www.huskyhouse.org today to fill out an application. July 17, 2024, 1:05 pm

Story
Rocco is 10-12 years old and weighs 12 pounds. He's an equal opportunity lover of dogs, respectful kids and any human who will be his friend. He's an outdoor enthusiast who needs a fenced yard to safely enjoy his adventures. His favorite pastime? Being by your side! Since his beloved owner went into hospice care, Rocco thrives best with someone who’s home often. Rocco has some vision and hearing loss and may need a hand with stairs, but his spirit is unstoppable! Sometimes he barks for no reason but a little distraction does the trick. While we believe he’s housetrained, we use a "male wrap" (belly band) just in case. He’s not on any medication and his recent bloodwork and vet notes show he's doing fine for a senior! We are looking for a "Forever Foster" for Rocco. We'll supply everything Rocco needs for life – all you need to do is provide a loving home, just like you would your own pet. We’re looking for a family within a reasonable distance from Barnegat, NJ, so he can visit our vet in town. In the alternative, if you would like to adopt Rocco as your very own companion, we are absolutely open to that! And so is Rocco! Please consider becoming Rocco's forever family by completing an application at www.pounddogfounddog.org or share Rocco’s story with anyone who might be the perfect match.
