BRAVO is shy but friendly and seems to prefer women over men, at least initially, he also enjoys the company of other dogs. He was given up by his owners when they lost their home, where he was kept indoors day and night and was never alone. Bravo is housebroken; leash trained and has some obedience training. He loves car rides and has no known medical conditions.

He's a sensitive little guy who just needs a quiet, loving home where he can be someone's constant companion. If that person is you, contact Marisa by text or phone at: (973) 975-9834, or email: marisabp@live.com

These little guys are identified as Toy Fox Terriers and we recognize them as Rat Terriers. There are 40 taken into this shelter on July 9. If you or someone you know, are able to step-up to help one or more please do this. An overwhelming number of sweet dogs who deserve to be saved.

Over half of these sweet, innocent dogs are at least 12 years of age which makes them highly unlikely to be adopted because people usually just want young pets. These babies have many years left to live- but only if kind people will give them homes so they are not euthanized in the crowded shelter. Once again a greedy breeder has thought more of herself than the future of the dogs she has caused to be brought into the world and now abandoned.
