Adoptable Dogs

Prentiss

(Beagle & Basset Hound Mix)


Meet smiley and sweet 4 year old Prentiss! This petite 23 pound bundle of beagle-basset mix was living outside a man’s house for about two years. She really didn’t want to live outside, so she spent a lot of time on his porch. There she seemed to enjoy the company of his outdoor cat. Prentiss would roam around the unfenced yard too whenever she felt like it. In her former life, Prentiss may have had a career as a rabbit hunting dog. We suspect that because she had arrived at his home wearing a collar with a metal plate and bell on it. That is the type of collar that rabbit hunting dogs wear down in Mississippi. She had either lost her way or was “dropped off” in this rural area commonly known as “that county road drop off” and her rabbit hunting career came to an abrupt stop. When the man called the number on the collar the people said that they were not missing a dog. (Not sure how that is possible as it seems so cruel! But that is Prentiss’s sad backstory.) Meanwhile, the man who owned this house would give her water and food but not let her in despite her big brown begging eyes. Dogs of course need to be with their family! Later one of our volunteers came by and realized that Prentiss was very pregnant. So while pregnant she became a little more elusive. We waited till the babies were born on the porch to bring them all to safety. Prentiss was a very good mother. According to the vet who spayed her, she had some litters before. And she was so appreciative of the help of our Southern volunteers and all the vet techs. She would just smile, wag her tail and look up to you lovingly. While in foster we observed that she got along great with the three other dogs and the many cats there. She was boarded at the vet after being spayed for a few days and all the vet techs said she was extremely sweet. Prentiss would go outside on a leash to do her business and never soiled her kennel. She would get along with the other dogs and puppies there at the vet and in foster. Prentiss appears to be very friendly and comfortable with both dogs and cats. We think she would be great with children over 11 and all adults. She is a very happy, very grateful dog. She will be so happy to finally make it home! She is up to date on her shots, spayed and fully vetted. If you are Prentiss’s forever family, please click below to give this beautiful girl the home she so deserves!! Thank you

Ozzy & Axle 


(Chihuahua Mixes)


Looking for a petite pair of bonded sweethearts? Look no more! Ozzy (handsome & blonde, 11 lbs) 7yr old dad and Axle (shiny and red, 11lbs) 5yr old son 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 interesting, 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.


They are ideal for the right home and heart! They were very good with the all 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 when they were there for their medical. They should be fine with kids, not sure about toddlers. They should be introduced properly to kids and any other animals in the household and we can help with that.

Claire Extraordinaire

(Treeing Walker Coonhound)

Adult • Female • Medium


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.

Nellie

(purebred Labrador Retriever)


Nellie is a young pedigree silver lab.  Silver labs are stunningly beautiful labs with Weimaraner-like coloring. Nellie has bright hazel green eyes and shimmery grey fur.   

The first year of Nellie’s life was pretty good by all reports (relatively speaking).  She was raised by small town Mississippi breeders. (Fortunately, this pedigree lab was not born in a puppy mill.) Nellie grew up with both of her dog parents, the other puppies in her litter, a young girl and a cat, as well as the two adult breeder parents.


One of the pictures is of her with her original litter running about. Another is her in her current pen at home. So, how did she go from the breeder to this current home? So when she was a puppy there was a high school boy who helped with dogsitting the litter while the local breeder family worked at their other jobs.  This teen had expressed an interest in having a hunting dog.  So, when Nellie was about one year old they gave her to him.  


So puppy Nellie was brought home to her new family but wasn’t allowed in the house as per the Dad.  She had what they consider in Mississippi “a very nice pen” because it is “big and huge with a cover”.  She had an automatic food dispenser.  The mom would visit her in the morning and night to give her water.  And she received premium scraps at night. But as Nellie’s Mom attested, Nellie spent way too much time alone yearning to get into the home with her family or the yard and pond on the outside of that pen. She even had a little bruise on her nose from trying to get her nose as far as she could through the grates in the fence.


The teenage son, meanwhile graduated, got a full-time job and studied at college at night.  He only hunted with Nellie twice, and then spent the rest of his spare time with his girlfriend. So, to his mom’s despair, the son left sweet Nellie alone.  When both parents were home they would let Nellie run about the very large country yard with this red heeler dog.  Nellie would also opt to swim in the pond. When told to “kennel up” at night, Nellie would obediently go back into the lonely pen and play with her toy duck.  In the times when the mom would visit Nellie, Nellie would put her head on her lap and just melt over the affection.  She is a very gentle lab who just wants a family who has the time and the interest in a consistent, regular, loving, affection-filled relationship. Nellie got her rescue vetting April 17, 2019.  To adopt this beautiful, sweet pedigree silver lab please click on the link below to fill out an adoption application.
