Meet our special little girl Foxy. Foxy is approximately 7 years old and a chihuahua mix. She has bounced around a lot in her life which has taken a bit of a toll on her. She has a bit of an attitude and is currently under the care of a behavioral vet and we have found a nice cocktail of inexpensive medications that help to keep her relatively balanced. She needs a special person or couple who understands her quirks and who will give her all of the time she needs to be able to trust a new mom/dad. A household without children is a must for Foxy. Foxy is a resource guarder so she really should be the only dog in the house to avoid potential issues. She likes being outside, laying in the warm sun and going for little walks. Walking is very important for Foxy as she had two knee surgeries this year and did not use that leg for about 6 months, so her muscles have atrophied. We are currently working with an animal physical therapist who has gotten her using her leg again and we are building up her muscles again by doing underwater treadmill therapy. Despite Foxy’s issues, she really can be quite a sweet and funny dog. She just needs someone who understands her special needs and who will give her the space and time she needs when she needs it.Foxy is spayed, microchipped and up to date on her vaccinations. Any questions about Foxy can be directed to her foster mom at kimr7296@aol.com.     show less

If you are looking for a big dog, who is a mush and super well behaved, then look no further.  You have found him.   Kahn is a 6  year old American Bulldog mix who weighs about 95 Lbs. He was with a family who he lived with all his life. They surrendered him to the shelter because where they were moving they couldn't take him. He was so stressed out and depressed, so he developed a skin infection.    We got him out of the shelter and he is now in a foster home and his skin is completely healed. He is a happy lovebuy of a boy again. He is totally housebroken, is not destructive when you leave him alone. Kahn's personality is so sweet and he just adores to be sitting by your feet or next to you, and get lots of head rubs, belly rubs too.  He has lived as an only dog his whole life and would be best continuing that. He would love a fenced in yard to go out and sit in the sun, that is his favorite thing to do in his foster home.  He lays in the sun room on his dog bead and just loves life. Kahn is strong on a leash but walks nicely on it most of the time as long as he has no distractions so he would need someone who can handle a large dog & continue to work on his leash training.  He does want to jump up when he first meets someone but we are working on changing that. He is not food aggressive & he will let you take anything he has in his mouth from him.  He learns quickly but and responds well to structure and affection.  He can easily knock down small children in his excitement to see them. He has plenty of energy and loves to play.  He is totally happy laying around with you if you just need to relax. All in all he's a big sweet goofball who would love to find a forever home with someone or a family who can offer him a life he deserves. Kahn also loves car rides and behaves very nicely when he's out for a drive.  He just sits in the back of the car and looks out the window and takes it all in.  He would love to be someones buddy going for rides.   If you want to meet him, fill out an application on our website bcaaofnj.org show less

Shea is a 1 year old German Shepherd about 45 lbs, spayed, UTD on all vaccines/prevention. This beauty is one smart cookie who knows sit, look at me, wait, leave it, and is great at fetch – she brings the ball right back!  Shea loves to go on walks, make friends with people/animals.  She is dog friendly, having played with a puppy, meeting other dogs.  Though she may a bit shy at first she quickly warms up to show her goofy smiley girl self who loves to climb, walk with a stuffy, get pets, cuddle, and give/receive kisses!  Shea came to us from Georgia and is currently living in PA and finds the city a bit overwhelming.  So we think she would do better in a home where she can walk on quiet streets or have a yard of her own to run in.  Whe she goes on walks, She aloves to carry her stuffy, it is so cute.  It gives her a job to focus on, helps to acclimate.  This little girl loves to walk, work, learn, add treat motivated, what more can be said?!   Ideally, Shea should have space to run – poetry in motion when she can!  Shea would thrive, awe in a lower volume environment such as the suburbs while she builds confidence.  To see her doing this now shows her amazing potential.  She wants to learn, please, work – a true GSD!  Shea is a great communicator, and lets one know when she is having a hard time. She checks-in when she is feeling overwhelmed, which is a shaping behavior.  Amazing, right?!  Please give this beautiful girl a chance!!!  show less
