Story
Hi! I'm Ozzie. I'm 4 years old. Like most pitbulls, I'm a snugglebug and love to be close to my people. I play well with other dogs. I know a few voice commands and two hand signals. I will sit, stay, and lay when asked, but even quicker if there's a treat involved. My human crossed The Rainbow Bridge recently and I miss him a lot. While he was here, though, I loved when he took me on walks around the neighborhood and hung out with me on the couch. He always told me that I was a really good listener when I was on-leash. I love to play, run around in the yard (I'm really fast!), and smell all the smells. Do you have a backyard I can play in? If so, have your people call my people, we'll do lunch. ;-)

Story
Jagger is a super playful almost 2 year old pitbull. He is so loved but unfortunately my family and I have a super busy schedule and it is not fair to him. Jagger will thrive in a household where he can receive unlimited attention. He has never bit anyone nor is he aggressive. He is super cuddly and affectionate. He loves to give kisses and receive endless amounts of scratches and back rubs. I adopted jagger at 6 weeks from another very loving family. Jagger is definitely a house dog and has never been around any type of hostile environment. Because he is so affectionate, it may take some time for him to open up but once he does, he will love you so much.

Kissing QueenFound running along a major NJ highway, Smoochie's journey to safety was nothing short of miraculous. Rescued by a compassionate soul who couldn't turn a blind eye to this dire situation (despite having a car full of cats heading for vetting), Smoochie's resilience shines through even though she looked very neglected.No ID or chip noted and no one claimed her. Despite enduring a neglectful life, her spirit remains unbroken. Despite her past, she holds no grudges, greeting everyone she meets with a gentle wagging tail and a heart full of love.Woof-Facts: Name: Smoochie, Smooch Breed: Pittie blend Weight: 50 lbs Age: 3 years Gender: Female  Health: UTD on vaccines, healthy, Spay pending Forever home recommendations: Smoochie is quite loving. She seems to enjoy all people and prefers a home where people are around more than not. Smooch likes walking, hiking, sniffaris, cuddling, spooning, and snuggling.Kids: She would do well with respectful kids.Dogs: She is good with dogs her size and enjoys their company. She may prefer a calmer, easy going, or submissive canine pal.Cats: NoCrate trained: Yes, but long term crating may stress her.House trained: Working on it.Leash manners: She does well on lead and would benefit from some basic training.Personality: Smoochie is a bit shy with new people but seeks attention and company. She is great in the car and would be great on a road trip or running errands. How did Smoochie find herself at Rescue Haven Foundation: Smoochie was darting through traffic on a major highway but her rescuer is a friend of ours who was in the right place at the right time. Smoochie is fully vetted and healthy and will be spayed prior to adoption. We are seeking an adopter or committed foster.February 22, 2024, 6:58 am

Minnie may be small in size, yet she’s big in enthusiasm. She is full of love and life and needs to find human(s) to partner with her along the way.”Woof-Facts Name: Minnie Breed: Pitty/terrier mix Weight: 42 lbs. Age: 2-1/2 years young Gender: Female Health: Healthy, spayed, up to date on vaccines More Info Forever home recommendations: Minnie loves being with her humans and is tons of fun. She prefers not to be left alone for long periods of time so she’ll need a home that can accommodate that.

Given this, she’ll do best with someone who will provide her with training and consistency so she can continue to excel at learning her manners. While, simultaneously, her zest for life will be contagious to her human companion(s).  Kids: Friendly with all the people she’s met; a home with teenagers would be ideal due to her energy level Dogs: Working on her manners when meeting new dogs, so if you have a dog in your home, a meet-and-greet would be required Cats: No cats Crate trained: Does OK in her crate for short increments while accompanied by her stuffed Kong treat House trained: Yes Leash manners: Learning proper behavior while on a leash Personality: Sweet as pie, smart as a whip, tons of energyHow did Minnie find herself at Rescue Haven Foundation?Was found as a stray in an urban area of NJFebruary 22, 2024, 6:58 am
