Story
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. She has a lot of energy so sometimes she needs to be reeled back in; therefore, it’s ideal that she inherently loves to learn and aims to please. 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

PLEASE DO NOT HIT "ASK ABOUT"! If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website www.wiseanimalrescue.org/adoption-application! Name: Lucky Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Shar Pei mix Age: 3 years old Size: Approx 75lbs Home Recommendation: Lucky had a very rough journey after being alone as a stray and ending up in a shelter. Due to her past, she will need a home that will provide her the perfect combination of structure and enrichment. She would do best being the only animal in the home and with older kids who will respect her boundaries. Her family must have rescue or large breed dog experience. Personality: Feeling Lucky? Take a chance on her! This sweetheart is an easy-going love bug who aims to please. When she is not cuddling with you in bed, she is always up for adventure! She loves to go to the park, ride in cars or trains, and even play in the ocean! Lucky loves being in your company and being your loyal companion. She may be large, but she curls herself up in a tiny ball to snuggle perfectly close to you. Ready to meet Lucky? She channels Xena, Warrior Princess! Not a shrinking violet, Lucky is a take charge kinda gal but also cherishes the quiet moments flopped on your bed under a blanket. She’s an old soul at only 3 years. Found on the street (not her fault), her devoted Foster Mom has reinforced her confidence and made her shine. Loyalty is her middle name. And she answers “yes!” to the treats you carry in your hand on walks. Lucky’s a total tomboy, always up for a heroic quest, a walk, a car ride, or a romp in the ocean. Her eyes will melt you. Remember Lucy Lawless? Filled with love and a twinkle of mischief. Kids: 13+ Dogs: Lucky has doggy friends, but would do best being the only dog in her house Cats: No cats for Lucky! Crate Trained: Yes! She does great in her crate House Trained: Yes! She will go to the door when she needs to be taken outside Leash Manners: She walks beautifully on leash and does not pull! She loves to go for walks, especially to the park. Training: Lucky is very smart and knows Stay, wait, heel, come, sit, down and off. She does get protective of her special items and has been working on sharing with her foster mom. She will need to go to a family who can provide her lots of structure and continue with her training to make her the best pup she can be! Why did she come to WISE?: Lucky was rescued from a local municipal shelter where she was for 6 months before being saved. She has been making strides since being in a foster home and can't wait to bring lots of joy into her forever home!
