Sandy

Sandy

Anatolian Shepherd Mix   

Young • Female • Large

Meet lovely Sandy the sweet and friendly 75 lb. Anatolian shepherd. She is a little exotic looking and tall. When she walks down the street she turns heads. She was only 65 pounds when she first came into rescue three weeks ago in KY, and she gained ten pounds since then. For these three weeks she has been mostly in a crate and well fed. She has been able to go out for breaks, sometimes for an hour or hours at a time. She loves to run. She loves exercise. She came into the shelter as a stray, and was pulled out at the last minute. She has been so grateful ever since. She has been spayed and fully vetted. She is intelligent and responds well to training, but will need a little more. Right now she does pull on a leash, but that could easily be corrected with proper exercise and stability. She gets along with all the dogs in the foster. She is happy to walk with other dogs too. She loves kids. She is affectionate. It would be best for her to have a fenced in yard. She really needs that exercise. She is mostly in her crate and appears to do all her business outside. She is spayed and up to date on all her vaccinations. To adopt beautiful Sandy please visit www.Peace4Paws.org and fill out an adoption application. Thank you.

Bear

Bear

Beagle & Mountain Cur Mix

Senior • Male • Medium

Bear spent his life on a chain for 11 years in KY. When he was 4 months old, he was put outside because he was too full of energy. He was mostly forgotten and quite lonely. He would wag his tail like crazy whenever he received attention. His parents may have been involved in an unhealthy lifestyle. He was found running in a subdivision dragging a large broken chain. He is blind in one eye and might be partly deaf. Bear is muscular and strong at 11 years old and weighs around 40 lbs. He is remarkably healthy considering his life experiences. He is both heart worm and Lyme free. He is now up to date on all his shots and neutered. He was a super good boy in the vet's office. However, the doctor did say he had a severe cataract in his right eye and that his eye should be removed! He is with a family who has him sleeping right next to her bed in a crate. And he sleeps very peacefully. He loves being inside with his foster family. He gets along with all the foster’s dogs. His foster mom will cat test him soon. This loving senior boy really deserves a family who would shower him with love in his twilight years. And in return he would give pure love and gratitude. To adopt Bear, please visit our website, www.peace4paws.org and fill out an adoption application. Thank you.

Buddy

Buddy

Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler & Beagle Mix  

Young • Male • Medium

APRIL 8 UPDATE:

As soon as 40 pound Buddy came into the foster house, he greeted everyone so warmly. The teenage daughter came down the stairs he sat for her right away and she knelt down to his level. She hugged him and he just jumped into her arms and licked her. Buddy is a kisser. The husband was laying on the couch and he jumped on him too and hugged him. And Buddy and the man just laid there on the couch for a few minutes in an embrace. They keep saying “he is so cute”. Somehow or other he doesn’t look like his picture. He has stunning bright orange and white fur with perky pointed ears. He is a mush. When he is not on a walk he is totally relaxed and chills all day. They don’t have a fenced in backyard and they throw the ball around in the house. Buddy retrieves the ball. Buddy enjoys his crate as well as his doggy bed. If you are looking for a new best Buddy look no further than handsome Buddy! Buddy is housebroken, up to date on all his shots, microchipped and neutered. To adopt Buddy please visit our website www.peace4paws.org. 


=======================================================


This two-year-old, forty-pound, handsome boy named Buddy will arrive in NJ Saturday, April 4th. He was scheduled to be euthanized on April 3rd. We were able to save him just in time!! He was vetted early this week and now his whole new life is ahead of him! He loves people and at the shelter he was a little uncomfortable around other unneutered male dogs. So, he will be fostered in a home with no other dogs. He may be a good fit for a home with no other dogs. Plenty of dogs have been labeled that and have been devoted, beloved pets! And some dogs given that label are good with the right dogs in the right scenario. He is very smart and eager to assimilate to his foster life after being at the shelter for almost two months. A very long time. So, he will need a little time to decompress; all rescue dogs do -- and that is the number one reason why dogs are returned to us by adopters -- usually they expected and exposed the dogs to too much too soon. Buddy is neutered and up to date on his shots. He has been described as a very sweet dog. And we will have more to say about Buddy after we meet him in person very soon. We are so excited because we know he really needed a miracle and he is getting that opportunity! To adopt Buddy please visit http://www.peace4paws.org and fill out an adoption application. With love and thanks from Buddy!!

Scouty

Scouty

Hound & Rottweiler Mix 

Young • Male • Medium

04/07/20 UPDATE:

One year young Scout or Scouty is now in foster in Hillsdale, NJ. At 40 pounds, this handsome mutt is a small medium sized dog, but he looks much bigger in his pictures. His personality and zest for fun is huge! He will light up your day every day, he just beams with enthusiasm and positive energy. Scout is fostered with two other dogs, Steve who is his size and the resident dog Cheyenne who is also his size. He is great with them!! He shares treats with them, no fighting whatsoever. He eats out of his food bowl happily without anxiety (unlike some dogs he did not present to us starved). Scout is healthy and athletic. He would be a great companion for long walks, hikes and even jogging. Scout absolutely loves his backyard. He runs about most of the day with other dogs Steve and Cheyenne and then at night he sleeps next to his foster mom and dog siblings. In between he does find time to chew things. He is young so of course really loves to chew. So he will need a lot of toys and bones. He is housebroken. He would be great with a family that has kids and other dogs. Super young kids would be fine with complete parental supervision, only because they don’t realize yet to put their toys away. Older kids typically learn fast that if their toys and other dog worthy items are left accessible, the dog will definitely contemplate chewing on them. So, all kids need to be prepared to puppy-proof the house. And of course we always remind parents to puppy proof the house just to avoid the things being found by a curious Scout. He could be a hound/Rottweiler mix. We hope to do his DNA later. Whatever his mutt mix may be Scout came out super sweet! He is up to date on all his shots, microchipped and neutered. To adopt this intelligent Scout of a boy, please visit our website, www.peace4paws.org and fill out an adoption application. 


=================================================


Scout’s tail is always wagging when he sees you. Scout, a one-year old, forty lb. hound/shepherd mix, is an affectionate boy with a beautiful brown/tan/black coat. He somehow managed to end up at a shelter during the pandemic. He was supposed to go to a rescue in Canada, but Canada shut their borders so he is once again in limbo. Fortunately, Peace4Paws found out about sweet Scout and will be picking him up in Erie, PA on Saturday, April 4th and bringing him to safety in the Northeast. Scout is up to date on all his shots, microchipped, and neutered. To adopt Scout, please be ready to give him some well needed decompression time and patience because in an understanding environment he will thrive. He wants so much to please you and given proper direction, he will. He is good with other dogs and unknown with cats and kids. To adopt this wiggly boy, please visit our website www.peace4paws.org and fill out an adoption application. Thank you!

Steve

Steve

Yellow Labrador Retriever & Hound Mix  

Young • Male • Medium

Yellow lab Steve is as sweet as he looks. This 40-pound, one-year old, yellow lab/hound mix is so incredibly affectionate and playful. This cream puff of a boy just loves to be with people and other dogs. He is smaller than a Labrador but with the loving temperament fully intact. Steve is also smart. He learned to use the doggy door almost immediately upon arriving at his fosters home in Hillsdale, NJ. He loves the backyard and plays for hours on end with his foster brother Scout and his resident dog sister Cheyenne. When they are not running about, they are sunbathing as the weather during this pandemic has been sunny and warm in northern NJ lately. He is excellent when it comes to eating. He shares his treats and eats from his bowl peacefully. You can take food or toys out of his mouth. He does love toys, and sadly for him his foster buddy Scouty ripped them all up already. He is fine in a crate. He is currently afraid to walk up a steep flight of stairs (he may have lived in a one level home in KY). But surely he will learn. He does cry when his foster mom goes upstairs. Separation anxiety is totally normal after all he has been though and is a manageable thing for a loving, dog savvy family. Given someone’s complete commitment to him he will learn to feel secure again; being in a cage at a shelter was no fund for him!! He likes to be close to his foster mom when he is not outside. He loves sleeping with her and the other dogs at night. Right now, he does get very excited when he sees her, so he jumps. Obviously, jumping is something that can be trained out of the dog over time (not immediately because he would need time to decompress first before being able to learn to behave counterintuitively. He jumps because he wants to be close to you!). Steve has warm brown eyes that look at you adoringly. He will rub up close to you. We really would like to find a family who would not leave him alone for too long (three or four hours max) because he currently fears abandonment (totally understandable of course as this little lover boy was stuck in a shelter). We would definitely recommend him for a family that has another dog and kids because he has all the love and energy to go around. We don’t recommend super young kids because as we mentioned he jumps a lot. Seniors who have balance issues would definitely not be a match. But for the right family he will be able and thrilled to please you! Steve is crate trained, moderately leash trained, up to date on all his shots, neutered, microchipped and ready to complete your family with love! To apply for Steve please visit our website www.peace4paws.org and fill out an adoption application. Thank you so much!!

Blackie

blackie

Border Collie Mix  

Young • Male • Medium

A 40 lb. approximately one-year old Border collie, Blackie could easily be called “Dapper Dan” with a tuxedo shirt-like white chest and cute white tips on his feet!! Temperament wise he is as sweet on the inside as he is as cute on the outside. He is very affectionate and loving. His foster mom also calls him shadow because he follows her everywhere she goes (and it has only been for three days). In that short time however he has shown that he is good with other dogs, good on a leash, housebroken, and good in cars. Today his foster mom walked him with two other dogs, and he stayed with the pack beautifully. When he is off leash in the house he mingles and sleeps with the other dogs comfortably. He shares snacks with the other dogs and eats from his food bowl peacefully even with other dogs nearby. When his foster mom wants to brush his entire shiny coat including his tail, he is totally cooperative. He definitely came from a home. He ended up in a scary kill shelter through no fault of his own. Thank goodness he is out, and it was a very close call. He was rescued just in time. Meanwhile he is adjusting to being pampered again. He loves both his foster mom and foster dad. He loves the outdoors and he would be a wonderful pet for an active person who enjoys long walks and hikes. He is an intelligent boy. We are looking for a family who is border collie savvy. We have lifted this information from a website on border collies. They wrote “if you want a dog who is medium-sized and natural looking, has a handsome easy-groom coat, is very athletic and thrives on tons of exercise and training, is exceptionally intelligent and versatile when well-trained, can learn and do almost anything, will play fetch for hours and hours.” If you don’t want to deal with: “An intense athlete who may acquire obsessive and destructive behaviors if you don't provide lots of exercise and creative outlets for his energy; staring, chasing, poking, and grabbing at things that move: children, other animals, joggers, bicyclists” then a border collie is not for you. And they would not be good in a house with a cat. The tricky part about these sweet border collies is their herding nature. They sometimes falsely get accused of nipping (especially children) when they are actually using their mouth to herd. They tend to be mouthy. So, the right family will not have small kids, have a tall fenced in backyard, perhaps like to jog, and will know and love the breed. That family would have a super fun and devoted family pet in Blackie. Blackie is up to date on all his shots, neutered, and microchipped. To adopt Blackie please visit our website www.peace4paws.org and fill out an adoption application. Thanks!
