Peace4Paws saved 6 year old Claire (an elegant, lean 60 lb Treeing Walker Coonhound) from a Kentucky kill shelter just moments before she was about to be euthanized.  She has been fostered here in New Jersey since June 2017.  She is very sweet and protective of her foster home.  She bonds very well to her female foster mom and she did very well with her temporary foster dad.  She is not crazy about male dogs. She is not good with young kids. But she gets along with submissive female dogs. She would be great as an only dog or with a submissive female.  She is totally housebroken.  She is crate trained and actually really likes her crate which is kept open during the day. She loves to sniff everything.  She loves sunning herself in the backyard.  She is a happy girl.  She is up to date on all her shots and is spayed.  To adopt dear Claire (aka Clarisse) please click below.

(Golden Retriever)

Baby • Male • Small

Little baby golden retriever/beagle mix puppy Buddy was about sixteen weeks old when he was abandoned in the street outside a rescuers house.  Smart boy, he walked right up to the front porch!! Lucky for both of them, the rescuer took the little boy in and gave him lots of love.  He is super affectionate.  Buddy loves belly rubs.  When you stroke him, he will lie in your lap and wiggle his feet joyfully. The vet is treating him for sarcoptic mange, which is manageable and curable.  We had four other mange puppies before and they were happily adopted and are totally healthy and happy older puppies now. 

We know Buddy will be available to travel north around September 30.  He is available for families to apply to adopt now so we can be confident that little Buddy will have a great home to welcome him when he arrives. Best to be ready to work on some housebreaking, training and lots of walks even though he is being socialized as much as possible. Buddy received his first round of puppy shots on September 7.  To adopt Buddy please click below to fill out an adoption application.

Jenny Pumpkin 

(Swiss Shepherd / Terrier Mix)

Young • Female • Medium

Meet independent, affectionate, athletic Jenny Pumpkin. Young Jenny has the most beautiful pumpkin and white colored fur. Her markings, like her personality, are unique and special. Jenny has cute spots – some look like freckles! And her personality is ever-engaging. She tries to talk to you. She can entertain herself home alone for 8 or 10 hours with her toys and her backyard access, but when you return she is so happy be with you. She loves walks, runs, hikes, playing fetch or tug of war, sitting while watching you cook or clean, watching TV herself (especially anything with a ball) and sleeping next to you when invited. She even likes her crate. From her crate she will watch you attentively and cew on a rawhide or other bone. 

Jenny has a super healthy stomach; she can eat anything. This medium sized, 40 pound young girl is incredibly fit and agile. Her trainer said that she would be great for agility training (a great bonding activity). She has been trained to walk well on a leash but still does best with experienced handlers as she is quite active and strong. We tested her DNA and she is Swiss shepherd (a herding dog), pit and Rottie, although she really doesn’t look like any of those breeds. We recommend her as an only pet. But she is very good on a leash walking next to dogs that she likes. 

Jenny is fully housebroken, knows her basic commands, spayed, up to date on all her shots and ready to be your loyal family pet! Recommended for kids over 12 or active adults.
Jenny is a rare gem! To apply to adopt Jenny please fill out an adoption application below.


(Rat Terrier Mix)

Adult • Female • Small

Daisy is a 25-pound rat terrier that is about 2 years old. She is spayed, potty trained, and up to date on all her vaccinations. Daisy came to New Jersey from Mississippi after being abandoned in a boarding facility by a family that never came back for her. Daisy was heartbroken and did not understand why she was left. Luckily, Peace4Paws had her transported to the Jersey shore and her new family instantly fell in love with her. The family already had a female rat terrier in the house and it seemed as if the girls would be best buddies, and at first they were. Eventually after she settled in, Daisy’s new family saw that she was an extremely fearful dog that was afraid of pretty much everything—new people, tall men, other dogs, visitors, etc. While Daisy’s family was working with her to overcome these fears, Daisy became very attached to the head female human in the household, and when the resident dog would enter a room Daisy saw her as a threat and would strike at her for fear that it would prevent her from getting all the love from her favorite human. The two rat terriers ended up getting into some pretty bad battles and Daisy’s trainer/behaviorist said that Daisy absolutely has to be the ONLY dog in a household with no children or other pets in order to have a happy life. 

That being said, Daisy has the potential to be a WONDERFUL dog with some training and love. She really needs someone to help her get over her fears and realize that there are some good humans out there who she can trust and who will love her and never abandon her. She absolutely does not need anyone who thinks being physical with her is a good training tactic; this will further set her back. She also would NOT like to be crated all day. She will take some time to adjust, so she needs a quiet, patient home with not too much action. 
Daisy is a loyal dog that absolutely loves sitting by your side on the couch, hard bones that she can work on for days, a fenced in back yard for running and hunting, and someone that is happy to walk her. She is 100% housebroken and goes nicely in her crate at night for bedtime. When you say her name she does the most adorable head tilt and when you stop petting her she will put her paw on top of your hand to let you know she is not done with you just yet! 

Daisy is a very special dog that needs a very special person. Daisy’s family wants to keep her but two fighting dogs is not a good situation with a young child in the house nor is it good for the resident dog that has been injured. Daisy has been an absolute angel to the 5-year-old child in the family, but we are suggesting that since she has been bounced around so much that she be with an adult only family to optimize her chances of a good life.
We are praying that there is a loving person that will take this sweet girl regardless of her past that has made her so fearful. Please click below to complete an application.

(Terrier Mix)

Adult • Female • Medium

This tiny little 22 pound, 3 year old terrier girl was found in the street scarred, scared and in dire need of food, medical care and love. One of our volunteers Sam took her into his arms and heart and is fostering her until her forever family comes. She is currently up to date on her vaccinations and will be spayed before adoption. To adopt Ruby please click below.

Here is Sam’s story about this little girl:

When I saw this small dog on the street I couldn't believe what I was seeing. She was all skin and bones with a thick collar and dragging a leash. Her nose was to the ground sniffing for traces of food, she was desperate and hungry.

I pulled over as soon as I could and lost sight of her but after searching for a few minutes she came back toward the street and to where I was where she allowed me to pick her and caress her head and tell her she was going to be better off than before. This entire time she was wagging her tail and seemed happy but I know deep down in her she was starving and hungry for affection.

I got her in my car and drove off. She was in the passenger seat but quickly came over to my lap and started giving me kisses and more wags of her tail. She settled in some and started to look out the window. She seemed to know she was in good hands as she never stopped wagging her tail even though I knew she was so hungry she could probably eat a shoe but she seemed to put her trust in me. At this point I realized I had to do all that I could to make her life going forward to be pampered with all the food she could eat and a warm bed at night with someone close to her to let her know she would be safe from now on.

Once I got her home and took a closer look I realized how terribly bad she had been treated. Her ribs were all showing and could easily be counted, her tailbone and spine clearly visible and scar on her snout from her mouth being tied shut so she couldn't bark or fight. My thoughts and vision of what she went through angered me beyond control. And more so because she is small only weighing 22 lbs. and when she completely heals won't weigh more than 40 lbs. To abuse such a small, innocent dog is criminal but these individuals have no care or conscience. These scum are probably looking for another dog to replace this one they lost and my thoughts are tormented by what is going to happen to this next dog. But this little girl will get the best care and the best forever home, as she deserves, as all the animals that have been abused do not deserve this inhumane treatment. It should not be this easy to get a dog. It should be extremely difficult to find an animal. The more difficult, maybe the less opportunity to abuse. 

This little girl is nothing but sweet. She doesn't bark and maybe that is due to her abuse, she doesn't complain but follows me and is so appreciative. She eats all that I give her and with her sad eyes tells me thanks. 

I can only imagine what she went through but no more. She managed to survive and now her life will be as wonderful as possible.


(Pointer-Boxer-Lab Mix)

Young • Female • Large

URGENT: HOUSE IN WESTWOOD, NJ IS SOLD Beautiful housebroken 2 year, 5 month young pointer-boxer-lab mix Electra is in immediate need of a new home because her family is moving without her. It is a long story, but the bottom line is Electra has been with one family since she was a puppy. She is fully socialized, affectionate and healthy. Anyone who applies and is approved to rescue and adopt her will have a gem of a dog.  Electra was brought home at 8 weeks old by a young person and her boyfriend without consulting the soon to be retiring parents.  Then not surprising to us in rescue, the girl moved out, the girl and boy broke up and the dog went back to the parents who had their house on the market.  But the good thing about her past drama is we know she was well raised!  Electra spent her earliest years with babies, kids and adults.  She is super kid friendly. She also is wonderful with other dogs. She lives with a small senior dog currently. Her grandmother takes her for a mile run/walk plus a visit to the dogpark every morning. She also goes outside into the dogpen right after breakfast and dinner to do her business.  She does this like “clockwork” they said. She is energetic when you first come home but then is calm and serene most of the rest of the day. She loves to sleep right next to you when you let her.  She has beautiful golden brown eyes that twinkle at you when you have a treat or blow bubbles which she loves to chase.  This 75 pound youngster also loves sunbathing in the backyard or playing fetch.  This is a great dog for a family with kids of any age because she has a great temperament. Electra is one hundred perfect reliable with babies and little kids, something which would be hard to predict with 100 percent certainty when adopting a dog direct from a shelter.  So the fact that this wonderful, totally predictable dog who has all her medical records on file locally is some incredibly good news for one lucky family. We are looking for an active minded family that has a fenced in backyard.  To adopt this very safe, snuggly, spayed beauty please fill out an adoption application below. Electra’s home is sold and we want to place her in a good home fast. So, please don't hesitate to apply or share this listing on social media or with a friend who may be interested.  Thank you!!
