Adoptable Dogs

Jogging Jenny 

(Swiss Shepherd / Terrier Mix)

Young • Female • Medium

Meet independent, affectionate, athletic Jogging Jenny. 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.


Yes we do allow our fosters to adopt.


(Feist, Jack Russel, Lemon Beagle Mix)

Young • Male • Small

A stray puppy on the side of the road?? Meet healthy, handsome little blonde Kyro. He is now approximately five months old and only 14.8 pounds. He is suspected to be a feist, jack Russel, lemon beagle type mix.  We anticipate Kyro’s adult weight to be about 20 pounds.  He is a good choice for someone looking for a smaller dog.  And a very good and well socialized dog at that!! Did you know his backstory? Well, little 8 week Kyro was first spotted all alone on the side of a road in Cairo, Mississippi! He was hanging out on the grassy curb with his paw raised in the air gracefully and submissively to say “hello - I love you - won’t you tell me your name”! The rescuer stopped short at this site of this beautiful boy. Kryo was as affectionate and friendly as could be. Never underestimate a stray puppy – he immediately tried to climb into her car!  He looked up at her with his big brown eyes and gave lots of kisses. Irresistible! The rescuer of course took him into her care.  Since then he has received various puppy shots, lots of socialization with her other dogs, and her kids, and he is ready to go home.  He is good in a crate but not fully potty trained because he spends a lot of time outside. He still loves cars and enjoys going for rides as well as playing in the backyard with the other dogs. To adopt this clever friendly little guy please fill out an adoption application at  And we will be in touch as soon as we finish processing it. Thank you.


(Rotty / Shepherd Mix)

Young • Female • Medium

Meet Nema - Nema is a gorgeous, friendly 1 year old rotty/shepherd mix.  Her mother was a purebred German Shepherd, the father was a purebred Rottweiler.  This funny, friendly girl gets along great with all people, dogs, and cats.  She can jump a four foot fence so she needs a taller fence than that to keep her from coming around to your front door or car to say hello or ask to go for a carried.  She is adorable.  Her ears stick straight up all the time.  She is very cute.  She is up to date on all her shots.  She is not spayed yet because she is currently in a private foster who is very loving but doesn't have the cashflow yet to get her spayed.  To apply for Nema please click below to fill out an adoption application. Thank you !!!

(Cattle Dog)

Adult • Female • Medium

Meet gentle Noel! Noel is an exceptionally sweet six month old cattle dog puppy.  She is about 25 pounds and will grow to maybe 35 pounds. Noel is very healthy now. But that was not always the case.  In December, when due to lack of proper attention and immunization her family who were going through a domestic crisis inadvertently overlooked her.  Finally at one point, when the lady of the house was at a Kentucky Dollar Store they ran into a rescuer who they asked “do you take cats”.  The rescuer said she did not. And then the lady said “I really want the best for this dog – she needs to see a vet. She is totally lethargic. But, I have no money.  And things at home are a disaster. ” The lady surrendered the dog to the rescuer who took her immediately the vet.  Noel had a 106.6 fever. She barely survived the night. She was diagnosed with the dreaded parvo and an infection. Once the fever broke and she was hydrated she started to pull through. It cost hundreds of dollars, but it was well worth it.  Once the dog has parvo - they can never get it again, so it has made her stronger.  She is so happy and healthy now!! Noel is appreciative to the opportunity to be playing in the backyard with other dogs, kids and people.  She is good with cats, too.  Noel is good on a leash. The rescuer said that “She will be a great companion to any family because of her extremely gentle and sweet personality”.  Noel has super soft fur and unique spots.  She is up to date on all her shots, spayed and microchipped. Noel will be traveling the end of January or early February up north. To adopt Noel please fill out an adoption application below .

(Spaniel & Terrier Mix)

Adult • Female • Medium

Not again – homeless dog used by the vet for blood donations!! How sad. Poor sweet Lucy, 42 pound spaniel-terrier mix was found stray nearby a vet’s office. At first they thought she was a senior. After fattening her up and giving her a safe (but sterile) kennel to live in they discovered she was indeed a young dog. At that point, since she had no advocate, they used her for blood donations. 

Soon a rescue found out about her and brought her into a foster situation where they learned that she is great with kids, adults, cats, and other dogs!! But now she needs a real home. She would be great in a home with older kids, cats, and dogs. She loves to play with everyone. She does need someone to take the time to work on some basic training (and she is very smart) so she knows not to jump, thus we are not recommending her with little kids. But this girl really needs a Christmas miracle. A family with a fenced in backyard. She really deserves a family to call her own that she can love and cuddle with joyously and loyally forever. Lucy is spayed, up to date on all her shots, and ready to love you. To adopt Lucy please fill out an adoption application at

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.


(Jack Russell Terrier Mix)

Puppy • Male • Medium

Roudi has super soft puppy fur and blue eyes. This little boy was only 13 weeks when some family gave up on him or just gave him up. We will never know why he had to experience a shelter as a baby. He is in foster, as playful as ever, and isn’t the slightest bit phased by having been there. He is about ten pounds, black and white and too young to be neutered but he has had one round of puppy shots and a microchip. He is a Jack Russell mix. His eyes will not remain blue that is the puppy stage. But surely he will remain playful and active. He loves to sleep too! He would be great for an active family who wants a small to medium sized dog. To adopt this little guy, please click below to fill out an application. Since he is a puppy we are looking for a family who is either experienced with puppies and the associated responsibilities such as potty training or is ready to take on that responsibility plus as age appropriate puppy training.
