Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (medium coat). Say hi to Luke. He's a senior Shih Tzu. Luke was with a family that didn't have much and couldn't afford to have him groomed and vetted. He was finally surrendered to the vet's office so that we could take over his care and find him a new home. He is partially blind, but his hearing is great. Just grab a bag of treats and he will come running to you. He's older but he has quite a bit of spunk. He has some medical issues but we are sorting them all out. It appears that most of his issues were from neglect and a flea infestation. Otherwise he is healthy. For more information, please submit an app at 4pawsnj.org/adopt

More About Shih Tzu Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Hemi

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hemi’s Story It was a hot summer afternoon. Jared had just left his mom's house after lunch with some tasty prime rib leftovers. Within 15 minutes – too short of a time for him to have gotten home—he called to tell how the leftover prime rib saved the day with a dog with soulful eyes that he found on the side of the road in Pleasantville. It looked like the dog had been hit by a car and had scars and bite marks on his body. His tan and white coat was matted with blood and open cuts. But he still didn’t trust enough to go with the young man who stopped for him. But the prime rib was enough. Jared sat on the side of the road feeding him pieces of meat until the injured dog would go with him. He took him to the local 24 hour vet for care. The dog had no microchip and no collar. Jared named him Hemi after the truck he drove. That was 3 years ago. Hemi is now about 5 years old. His scars have healed but now he has a broken heart. In a twist of fate no one could see, his dad passed away a month ago. Gone is his happy wag of his tail that his “daddy” is home to feed him, play with him, take him for rides in the truck along with his other fur baby rescue housemates, Bella and Meatball. The other dogs have been rehomed. Hemi cries a lot now. Hemi needs a family to love him. Hemi is people and dog friendly, crate trained, house-broken, eats once a day, knows basic commands (sit, down, stay, easy, kennel up), loves to run in a yard and play ball. He has a sweet personality and loves to play. Applications are being accepted at 4pawsnj/adopt

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Molly is just the cutest little pittie. She loves to play ball and is always wiggling. Molly takes a while to warm up to you, but will steal your heart once you get to know her. She's only 3 years old and weighs under 40 pounds. Neutered and up to date. Molly is not for everyone. She is super affectionate to the few that she allows to get close to her. She is very cautious and may be reactive to strangers. She requires a caretaker that will keep her in safe situations.
