 Seizures, Fearful/Anxious 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Jay loves to cuddle and spend time with his owner. He likes to get out and go for walks, but also doesn't mind being lazy on the couch. He gets anxious when he is left alone for long periods of time. I recently took him in from a family member, hoping that I would be able to give him a better home than where he was, but I work such long hours just about 7 days a week and it doesn't seem to be a good fit for Jay. I am hoping to find someone who is able to take care of him or at least know of a shelter where he would be able to go in the meantime. If anyone has any information that could help me place Jay, I ... (Read More)would very much appreciate it. The last time I took Jay to the vet, he was overweight but I have been trying to work on his new diet and exercise regimen. I'm confident that he has slimmed down since then and should continue to do so in a new home where he can get out more. Jay hasn't really had any seizures recently, but I thought I would note it anyway as a precaution. Jay has tested positive for lymes but you can't tell in his behavior. He is a sweet dog who needs a new home where he will get the attention that he deserves and needs. Please message me to help me find a loving home for Jay. (Less)

I am neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, have had bloodwork ,and my teeth cleaned. If you are searching for a sweet and gentle companion, then I am the boy for you. ...

    Hi! I'm Ami (pronounced 'ah-me'). I'm 8 years young and weighing in around 13 lbs. I love to play and hang around the house. My mom calls me a total ham (check out my smile!). I also really love to take naps, bask in the sun, go for long walks and cuddle. I'm very well trained and I like to do tricks for treats. I do have a case of mild anxiety when left unattended but my thunder shirt keeps me happy. My loving parents sadly need to re-home me, and are looking for the very best for my care. Thanks for looking! [short-haired tan and white chihuahua]

    Meet Carter, our Buddy! This little fellow was found as a stray on the streets of a NJ city, confused, hungry and tired. The shelter officers that found him were surprised that he had survived for whatever time he had been on his own. At merely 10 pounds, we don't know what obstacles he had to overcome to do so, but whatever they were, they were surely bigger than him! Schultz Senior Dachshund Sanctuary specializes in the safety and protection of OLDER animals in need. The shelter reached out for our assistance in saving this dog's life. We have continued the veterinary care and emotional support CARTER our BUDDY needed to mend him both ... (Read More)physically and spiritually; we are happy to see him growing stronger each day. CARTER our BUDDY has surely been blessed to receive this second chance at the proper love, care and companionship he deserves in his final years. We prefer and are honored to work with senior citizen adopters who are home more than not to provide the good company that this little guy needs. Won't you be a part of his journey HOME? (Less)

Animal ID: DannyDanny (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Danny was rescued from animal control on June 15. She was extremely frightened and growled at us when we tried to get her out of her carrier. She has since learned to be brave enough to come out of her crate and wander around the house and the yard. She like to hang out by the pool and relax with you on your lap. She just need a quiet home that will be patient with her and allow her to come out of her shell in her own time. She likes to be in her crate when she gets nervous. If you have a quiet home and some extra time to help this beautiful girl come out of her shell let us know.

Astro would be terrific in an agility class and needs an active home and one who can teach him a command or two. He knows 'Sit' but is quite capable of learning much more! Astro takes toys and treats gently, can be your co-pilot in the car, and if you have a dog, let's arrange a meet and greet, to see if it is a good match.A bigger calm dog would be a good fit! He is best in an adult home or one with teenage children. He is quick on his feet so watch your exiting and entering your home. Astro is currently in a foster home in central New Jersey. A fenced in yard is an absolute MUST for Astro as he really needs to get out and run off all that energy!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in New Jersey
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in New Jersey if they match your IifestyIe. Chihuahuas are high strung, yappy, tiny dogs. Chihuahuas are loyal to the point of possessiveness and obsession with their masters. Chihuahuas are bold, high energy dogs that make wonderful companions for their owners but are suspicious of strangers. Chihuahuas are not well suited to families with children due to the dogs' defensiveness and tendency to snap when provoked. Chihuahuas need to be thoroughly socialized. Despite their small size, Chihuahuas are often aggressive with other dogs. Chihuahuas do fine living in an apartment but need plenty of daily exercise.

    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world.
