(Pit Bull Terrier & Labrador Retriever Mix)
Puppy • Male • Medium
Meet Jerry Lee! This gorgeous 11 month old puppy loves every single person and dog he meets. Jerry Lee is like the one kid in high school we all knew - he gets along with everyone and has no enemies. His best friends are a 15 year old pit bull and a 9 year old human girl. He runs to the bus stop every day to greet his human bestie as she returns from school. She immediately drops her back pack and takes Jerry Lee for a long walk around the neighborhood, then they go play fetch in the big field behind their house. He is so good on a leash that this 9 year old girl has no problem walking him!
Jerry Lee's second favorite thing (besides his best friends) is car rides. He gets the biggest grin on his face when he jumps into the back seat and goes for short or long rides. Jerry Lee also knows how to sit and lay on command and is learning how to shake. Besides being highly intelligent and friendly, Jerry Lee is a comedian. He is always making his foster family laugh. He likes to do barrel rolls on the carpet for attention, and throwing his toys up in the air and chasing them. His foster family is always laughing at this great boy!
Jerry Lee is about 40-45 pounds and he is not getting any bigger. He has the shiniest black and white coat, and loves wearing clothes and a harness when he leaves the house. He is kennel trained and loves his crate, but does have slight separation anxiety, so we recommend him to go to a house where there are other dogs. Jerry Lee is neutered, almost house broken, microchipped, and completely vetted. He is a healthy, loving, funny boy, that would be an exceptional addition to any active family. If he sounds like the dog for you, please apply below.

Meet Mango! This adorable, goofy 18 month old boy is less than 40 pounds and has the most expressive face. He is always in the best mood and so happy to see everyone, and do anything. Mango was found with Rossi, one of our puppies that was recently adopted, walking down a long country road together. They were in great shape so we believe they were dumped by their previous owner. Their loss is our gain because Mango is one amazing dog!
Mango is pure mutt, and its hard to decipher exactly what his breed is. He looks to have a short stubby body like a bulldog, but his nose is longer, like a terrier. Regardless of his breed we know one thing - Mango is amazing! He is house broken, crate trained, incredibly dog friendly, and gentle with all people. Mango is a medium energy dog that enjoys his nap times as much as he enjoys playing in the yard. He is a very good boy that also doesn't jump up on people, isn't aggressive in any way, shape or form, and has a spectacular personality.
Mango is neutered, up to date on his shots, and finishing heart worm treatment. Once his treatment is complete he will be healthy, and no longer have heart worms. Heart worms are also not contagious and we caught them early, so they will have no long lasting effects. His treatment will be over April 13th and he will be able to transport to New Jersey and find his forever home then.

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.

Adult • Male • Large
Meet Happy Jack! Happy Jack has the most appropriate name ever because he is nothing but ecstatic! Happy Jack is a 3 year old yellow Labrador with the biggest eyes and smile. He was surrendered by his owner to the Memphis Animal Shelter because the owner was too busy to take care of Jack. But his loss is our gain, because Jack is one amazing dog!!
Happy Jack is currently in a foster home where he is undergoing heartworm treatment. This treatment will take 8 weeks and once complete, Jack will be as good as new! Heartworms are not contagious and they will be completely gone from Jack's heart once he is adopted. Jack will be ready for his forever home on March 23rd!
Jack is a very special dog that will fit into any family. He is completely house broken, crate trained, and submissive. He is in a foster home with 12 other dogs and he plays with all of them perfectly. Jack isn't a high energy dog and is content playing with a toy in his crate, chewing a bone on the fireplace or playing outside in the sun.
Happy Jack is a wonderful car rider who loves going on walks. He is neutered, up to date on all his shots, and a lover of water. Jack is all lab and has all the amazing qualities that Labradors possess. He is loyal, friendly, obedient, and easy to train. He can sit, shake, and hug on command takes treats so gently.

Meet 18 pound Reeses! Purebred, 8 year old, tricolor beagle Reeses has velvet like fur, big brown eyes that twinkle when you look at him, and a tail that wags perpetually. Reeses loves people, especially kids He actually prefers watching the two young boys in his foster home play than playing with toys himself. He is crate trained and housebroken. Great on a leash, eager to please, and very docile. He is a mellow, gentle guy. Great with kids and senior citizens. He was owned by someone who loved him in the South. Somehow his life changed and he was found in a rabbit hutch with two other abandoned hunting beagles (Bailey and Raleigh). He got along well with them, but obviously deserves much better. Reeses is neutered, up to date on his shots, and ready to be someone’s forever boy. He is perfect for a family who never had a dog or an experienced family. He is just going to make someone’s home wonderful!!
Update - Reeses is still the sweetest thing and he has very soft and shiny fur. He was placed in a forever home on Long Island. For him and the autistic 12 year old, it was like love at first sight. They loved each other. The parents got nervous though because for the two nights they had him there was some barking which set off some other dogs in the building. They were afraid of being evicted, so after two days they returned him. They thought he was just wonderful and sweet however, so they were very sad about it. He is now being fostered in a large home with a big fenced in backyard and another beagle. They love playing and hunting together and the whole family has a lot of love. So we are looking to place him in a home with or without kids and with or without other dogs but with a fenced in backyard so he can enjoy being a hunting beagle!

Meet Ivy! Precious puppy alert! Ivy is an 10-12 month old puppy that has the best attitude and spirit you could ask for. She greets every day with a huge puppy smile and a very waggily butt. Ivy is in a foster home with a small dog and a large labrador, and a kid and she loves to play with each of them as much as she can!
We found Ivy in a high kill shelter in the South. She had severe demodex mange (not contagious and caused by stress!) that caused all her fur to fall out. Although she looked funny we saw what an amazing puppy she was, so we saved her and brought her to an incredible foster home. While at the foster home Ivy has become house broken, crate trained, and has learned commands! She is getting her hair back, and its coming in so soft and copper. She is going to be a gorgeous puppy in a few weeks!
Ivy is spayed, up to date on her shots, and ready to go to her forever home. Ivy loves the car, enjoys going on walks, and thinks tug of war is the best game ever. She takes treats gently from people's hands, sits on command, and makes everyone around her happier just by being around. Ivy will be ready to be adopted February 9th. This is an incredibly special dog that deserves an amazing home. If you think you have the family for Ivy, please apply below.

Young • Female • Medium
Meet Jenny! When authors write books with dogs in them, we think they are writing about Jenny. This gorgeous girl is your stereotypical dog: she likes fetch, laying by the fire, chewing on her bone, being brushed, and giving kisses. She also loves water, getting brushed, and being pampered like the princess she is. But don't let Jenny's gorgeous looks fool you, she is not afraid to rough house and horse play with other dogs and people.
Jenny was found in a high kill shelter in Memphis after being there four weeks. She was put on the euthanasia list because she was going kennel crazy, but because she was at the shelter during the rainiest month in Memphis history, she never got to go outside and run and play. So she sat in a small kennel for 24 hours a day, for 4 straight weeks. But on the first sunny day in March one of our volunteers went and let her outside and let her play, and Jenny proved she was worth saving!
Jenny is about 2 years old and 40 pounds. She has the softest fur that is a unique red color. Because of her hilarious ears and beautiful fur, we think she is a shepherd/hound mix. But she isn't a typical hound because her foster mom says she never barks or howls! Jenny is house broken and crate trained though, and will go to the door to whine when she needs to go outside. She also is good on a leash, and loves checking out other dogs while on her walks.
Jenny is spayed, up to date on her shots, heartworm negative, and healthy. She is everything most people want in a dog; she is loving, playful, happy, and content to be by herself chewing on her toys and bones if necessary. She has been around multiple cats and ignored them every time, so we suspect she would be fine in a home with one. She is in a foster home with numerous other dogs and has no issues with any of them. If you think this beautiful girl could be a member of your family, please apply below.
(Shepherd & Basset Hound Mix)
Young • Male • Medium
Meet Ryder! Ryder is exactly how his names describes him: short and ridiculously cool. This 1 year old boy is a pure mutt- he has legs like a basset hound, fur like a shepherd, a big head like a Staffy, and the coloring of a retriever. Whatever he is, we know one thing: this boy is gorgeous!
Ryder was found in a high kill shelter in Memphis after he was surrendered by his owner. His owner told the shelter he had to move and couldn't take Ryder with him, but thankfully we saw this amazing dog only 4 days after he entered the shelter, so he didn't spend that much time there! He is now in a foster home with another really large dog and doing so well, we know it wont be long until another family spots this boy and snatches him up!
Ryder is 40 pounds, house broken, crate trained, and a huge fan of the doggie door. He has also proven himself to be very smart, and taught himself how to use the door within 2 hours! He also learned to sit in one day, and how to get down when directed. Ryder is decent on a leash, but gets excited on walks, so he will need some practice. He is neutered, up to date on his shots, and heart worm positive. He takes treats gently from his foster mother's hands and plays so well with the kids in the house. Ryder would make the perfect pet for any type of family. If your family has room for this amazing, sweet, and gentle shortie, please apply below.

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.

Young • Female • Medium
Meet Olive! This 21 month old golden/shepherd mix is not only beautiful, she's also smart! Olive is puppy through and through and loves to spend hours in the yard chasing leaves, chasing other dogs, and playing fetch. We definitely think Olive would need a family with a back yard or a dog park near by because she is a social butterfly who likes to play!
Olive gets along with all people (children age 10 and older), of all sizes. She would do wonderful with a family full of children, or a single person looking for a best friend. Olive does not like being dominated though, and would not work in a home with a dominant or alpha dog. But she has never met a stranger!
Olive is microchipped, spayed, healthy, housebroken, and up to date on all her shots. She is currently living at a vet's office, where she was owner surrendered before Thanksgiving. She only gets a few hours outside of her kennel all day, so its time she found her way into a loving home! If you want to adopt Olive please apply below.

Meet Ms. Bambi! This 10 month old 40 lb. pure bred mutt was found at a high kill shelter in the south almost starved to death. Our volunteer pulled her and immediately took her home to start fattening her up. In two weeks Bambi gained 15 pounds and is now a healthy weight and can go to her forever home.
This gorgeous girl is in a foster home with other dogs and cats and she loves everyone. She wags her tail so enthusiastically that she almost falls over! She has the cutest most wiggliest butt ever. Her favorite thing to do is take a walk with her foster brother Banana and she greets everyone she sees with kisses and a butt wiggle. She has never met a stranger! Bambi is in a home with a teenage autistic boy and she is so calm and gentle with him. Her foster mom says she will make a wonderful companion for any one disabled, and is drawn to her autistic son and seeks him out for gentle loving and belly rubs.
Bambi has a special toy that she plays with for hours. It will definitely be coming with her when she is adopted. She kicks the ball and chases it like a soccer ball! Bambi is a hilarious puppy that has so many great things going for her, she just needs a family to recognize her in all her awesomeness.
Bambi is crate trained, house broken, wonderful on a leash, and a terrific car rider. Even though she was almost starved to death, she has no food aggression, and takes treats gently from people's hands. She is spayed, heart worm negative, and up to date on her shots. She is so excited about having a family to call her own, and can't wait to show off how she plays to someone. If this bundle of joy sounds like the pet for you, please apply below.

Meet the debonair Raleigh! Don't let this little boy's regal good looks fool you, this handsome fellow has known hard times. He doesn't demand toys or a lot of play time. He just needs a warm home with a soft bed and plenty of food, water and an occasional treat. Raleigh and two other hunting dogs were being caged in a rabbit hutch when we found them. Years living in cramped quarters with little protection from cold, damp weather has left him mildly arthritic. But Raleigh still enjoys regular walks and exploring grassy areas. He has a gentle demeanor and gets along well with his current housemates --- two elderly terriers, a pitbull mix, and three cats. He is 95% housebroken --- he has the run of the house at his foster home and after a couple of accidents on the first day, he has proven himself trustworthy of having free reign of the house. Raleigh is mostly quiet and laid back, however occasionally he lets out a distinctive beagle bark when he gets wind of a squirrel or other suspicious characters. This gorgeous pure bred beagle is around 5-6 years old, and was used to hunt with his two brothers when he was younger. His former owner decided to stop hunting, thus decided he no longer needed his three beagles. His loss is our gain because Raleigh is a very special boy. At 18 pounds Raleigh makes a perfect companion for any person, and any family. He would do great in an apartment or in a home. He's wonderful on a leash and loves car rides - he curls up and just enjoys the ride! Raleigh is neutered, up to date on his shots, and ready to spend his remaining years in a home, with a loving family. If you are the family for him, please apply below.
