    Bear lives in a home with 2 female shepherds and 3 cats. He gets along with other animals but tends to be somewhat nervous when he first meets them. Not aggressive with other animals but would prefer a home with low energy animals. We also have a 3 year old and 2 year old that love him dearly. He has become somewhat anxious in the house with the commotion of daily life and would do best in a home with no small children and preferably the only pet. Adoption fee negotiable to good home.

    Meet Jackie!! Our newest senior available for Adoption in the Southern Paws senior program! She is an 11 year old border collie mix who usually has a beautiful coat, however due to severe mating we had to shave her practically bald. She has had a rough life. She has been bred and abused and severely neglected in her 11 years. She has some bad scarring on her tush due to mats that sat on her for years unattended. She is very friendly and can even be spritely at times. She is little and only weighs about 35 to 40 lbs. She loves to go for walks and adventures and to snuggle. Her favorite past time is watching TV. She is potty trained and crate ... (Read More)trained. She loves her foster brother Cherokee but it took her some time to come around to him. She would do great with other calm dogs who are more passive and submissive. She really enjoys meeting new people and dogs and likes children to. Although she likes kids She would do best in a calm home or with older children. She has severe skin disease which means at times her skin hurts and can be uncomfortable. She is on Apiquil and rimadel for now and this is something she may have to continue for the rest her her life. Her bloodwork came back great and health wise she is completely normal and healthy! She had a dental recently and her teeth are good too! She is now looking for a forever home through our senior program. If your interested in applying to adopt this sweet girl when she is ready please email us at for an application! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Shepherd in New Jersey
    Australian Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in New Jersey if they match your IifestyIe. The Australian Shepherd, or Aussie, is a playful breed that provides excellent companionship to active children. Aussies are smart, trainable, protective, and eager to please.

lnteresting Australian Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost New Jersey Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Australian Shepherds are not Australian; they were developed in the United States for herding livestock on American ranches. Australian Shepherds are descended from Spanish dogs that were used for herding Merino sheep. Aussies can be trained to perform tricks. Some Australian Shepherds are prized for their beautiful merle coloring, but the gene that causes this coloring also results in deafness or blindness.
