Ozzy & Axle

Chihuahua Mixes

Adult • Male • Small

Looking for a petite pair of bonded sweethearts? Look no more! Dad Ozzy (handsome & blonde, 11 lbs) 7yr old and son Axle (shiny and red, 11lbs) 5yr old are very bonded.  It is like having one small dog with them but twice the love! They stay so close to each other and will to you as well. 


These two cuties are very loving, social and friendly. And Ozzy and Axle have gorgeous big warm brown eyes that look up to you with adoration. Additionally they are both kennel trained. They will kennel up on command. They are housebroken. They are also healthy, neutered, heartworm negative, and up to date on all their shots. Both have just had their teeth cleaned. 


Their owner was elderly and in failing health and could no longer care for them. So they already lost their human parent and three other dogs they lived with down South, so the last thing we want is for them to lose each other. Then they were fostered in Rockland County with three other dogs but the foster mom had to stop to assume care of her elderly mom. Now they are in a temporary foster in Bergen County. 


They are ideal for the right home and heart! They were very good with the other dogs they lived with, so they can definitely go into a home with the right other dogs. They were fine with the vet clinic cats. They love people.

Hermione

Beagle & Treeing Walker Coonhound Mix  

Puppy • Female • Medium

October 8, 2019 Update:


Hermione is amazing. Not only affectionate, inherently good natured, friendly, and gentle, but also very smart. Her intellect is strong and she quickly makes associations and her ability to learn new commands fast is simply fascinating. It’s a pleasure to foster such a smart puppy.


She is still a baby, but her eyes tell a story. Sitting on the couch with her and watching TV feels like a special form of communication - she is so attentive and really wants to understand a person. She will be a treasure when she grows up - her ability to tune in with a human is already pronounced. 


From her Treeing Walker Coonhound DNA, she took love, intelligence, confidence, and a feeling of enjoyment when interacting with people. From her beagle DNA come the best cuddling abilities, a great appetite (she is still on the skinny side though, but we are working on it) and gorgeous looks. She is without a doubt growing to be a great companion dog and a beauty.


She loves games that challenge her sense of smell and hunting abilities. Hermione loves to look for treats in the grass and loves chasing balls, toys, or another dog who is playing with her. Hermione is very good with other dogs. She is mostly housebroken and if left indoors for a few hours, she uses a training pad. She is healthy and current on her immunizations. Hermione is truly ready to go into a loving home.


Some specs on her current weight will help determine adult weight, as for now she is still a puppy. The weight range for a medium sized adult dog is 26 to 60 pounds. On 8/22 at 9 weeks old Hermione was 12.8 pounds. At 14 weeks she was 16 pounds. It will be hard to predict her exact weight when full grown since we do not know either of the parents personally. But the vet made some breed predictions. The rule for estimating weight is when it comes to medium and larger breeds, take their weight at 14 weeks and double it. Then add half of the original weight. (So, if puppy Hermione weighs 16 pounds at 14 weeks, double this to 32 and then add 8 for an estimated adult weight of 40 pounds). She might be a medium size dog. 


If you are looking for a smart, kind, gentle, elegant, fun, super good luck beagle/treeing walker coonhound please apply to adopt Hermione by visiting our website: www.peace4paws.org


We will contact you and arrange a meeting.


Baby Hermione was dumped in the woods with her litter mates at 6 weeks old. Who does this stuff??? Terrible! These are very lucky puppies. The woods is a very dangerous place for babies without their mother. So, the first example of their luck started with two EMTs who discovered her and her siblings, have been loving them and will take care of her and her all eight of them until they are 12 weeks old. These EMTs truly knew how to care for them! At 12 weeks they will have had their second vet visit including age appropriate shots/treatment which means they will be safe to travel from KY to NJ, arriving September 15. She will not be housebroken at that time. She and her siblings are sweet, curious, playful and very ready to attach to a loving person or family. Some specs on their current weight will help determine adult weight, as for now they are small. The weight range for a medium sized adult dog is 26 to 60 pounds. On 8/22 at 9 weeks old Jeanie was 11 pounds, Snape (male) 15.6 pounds, and Hermione 12.8 pounds. It will be hard to predict their exact weights when full grown since we do not know either of the parents personally. But their vet made some breed predictions. The rule for estimating weight is when it comes to medium and larger breeds, take their weight at 14 weeks and double it. Then add half of the original weight. (For instance, if your puppy weighs 25 pounds at 14 weeks, double this to 50 and then add 12.5 for an estimated adult weight of 62.5 pounds). They won’t be small dogs; some may be medium, or some large dogs. When they arrive at 12 weeks old they will of course be a little bigger than they are now but still little babies in need of love.

Betsy

Beagle & Rat Terrier Mix

Adult • Female • Small

Betsy is like a little lamb who is lost in the woods. Petite sweet 3-year-old, 16 pound  beagle-rat terrier mix Betsy has been through so much since the spring of 2019. Her home life definitely wasn’t the greatest and it wasn’t any better when she was abandoned in a kill shelter. There she waited confused, terrified and sad. Fortunately, Peace4Paws began the process of saving her.  First, she lived with a very sweet Kentucky foster mom and ten foster dogs. There Betsy made a new best friend – Miffy - a little white fluffy doggy. Both Betsy and Miffy traveled up together from KY, but initially went to different NJ fosters. Betsy and her first NJ foster bonded well but in their huge and busy home her fear of the ever-changing traffic, especially males, was insurmountable. Heartbroken, NJ foster Mom Number One brought Betsy to foster Mom Number Two. That was stressful for Betsy but her best friend Miffy was in this foster home and that was a fun and comforting thing. Unfortunately, there was a big grouchy foster dog there who bit her in the neck for coming near the couch. Right after that bite, dear Miffy was adopted without Betsy as they didn't want two dogs. Betsy’s neck has since healed, but rather than allow that biting to repeat, Betsy went to foster Mom Number Three who will keep her until her forever family finds her. If you are still reading, we hope that forever family is you, and if not you can share her story. Now that Betsy is in her third NJ foster home, she is watching TV, listening to live music from her bed that is beneath the baby grand piano and going for walks. She is enjoying being best friends with the resident small white female dog named Baby Doll. She is still very vulnerable and nervous around new people and men. She is getting socialization experience every day however and lots of belly rubs. She spends some time in a crate which helps her feel safe. The resident dog Baby Doll helps her feel safe and Betsy responds with affection. Betsy may have suffered some physical and emotional abuse in her past from a male. She feels confident with the adult female mother figure in the house, but she needs stability. Her big honey colored eyes tell you that she wants to trust and that she will trust that special person.She gets along well with other dogs and even puppies. She loves to play. She is potty, wee-wee pad, crate and leash trained. Petite Betsy looks like a puppy with those enormous eyes and small 16-pound frame but is fully grown. Betsy just needs a patient woman to open her heart to her and she will give back endless love and affection; she is just so incredibly sweet. She is updated on all her shots, spayed, and energetically healthy.

Rose

Beagle Mix

Young • Female • Medium

Rose is a sweet, young medium sized beagle mix with beautiful red coloring. She loves other dogs, kids, and cats. She will make a great family pet. She doesn't like being crated because she may have been kept in a shed for hunting. She will bark in a crate right now, but with even a kong or some other incentive she could grow to love a crate as most dogs do like the comfort of a small space. She is submissive. She may have been hit because she does bow her head down when the foster opens the crate door. She is fostered with ten other dogs. She gets along great with all of them and the cats. Rose loves being in a fenced in backyard, home or on a walk where she can play or frolic. She loves kids. She may need to be trained housebreaking, but she is smart and will learn quickly. She is spayed and up to date on all her vaccinations and preventative care. To adopt Rose please visit our website www.Peace4Paws.org and fill out an adoption application.

Pepe

pepe - ADOPTION PENDING

Beagle

Adult • Female • Medium

“I didn’t want her in the first place,” says 83 year old who was given pedigree beagle puppy Pepe a gift for his 80th birthday. So, it really was too much for him to have a puppy. She was mostly crated for the first two years. Then after they spayed her at about two years old they chained her outside. She has been out there for almost a year. She received hay in the winter. Sometimes she would be allowed off the chain. Those times she would endure the pain of the electric fence and run over to the neighbor’s porch for companionship. This neighbor Karen gave her lots of love and socialization with her dogs and cats. Pepe is so happy to be around people. She is so affectionate. She loves being petted. She is a little overweight (approximately 40 pounds) from the diet she was given and lack of exercise. Once she is in a loving home, with a backyard, enjoying walks and eating right she will probably lose a few. Pepe will be a great dog and obviously deserves a great home!! Despite the fact that she didn’t get much attention from the man, she still loved him. And a few weeks after he decided to let Karen the neighbor try to get her adopted ( they contacted us) he died. He just died on 9.20.19. This was hard for Pepe too. Pepe needs a home right away. She is good with kids and other dogs. Pepe is spayed. She goes to the vet on 9.23.19 to get up to date on all her vaccinations, microchipped and the rest of our standard medical protocol. To adopt visit www.Peace4Paws.org and please fill out an adoption application. Pepe will be so happy. She really needs and deserves a wonderful home.
