Adelaide (Penny)

Adelaide (Newark) Aka Penny - loves to be with her people and other dogs, she wags her tail at every single person she meets!   From the second we laid eyes on Penny at AHS Newark we had no doubt that she was leaving with us. We took her into our lives gave her the love and medical treatment she desperately needed.  

 

Penny LOVES the car in fact, she is the perfect driving companion! A backyard is definitely a plus for this girl as she so loves to be outside to sun herself or just hang out with her family. Walks in the park are a favorite pastime as well.  

 

To bring Penny into your home is to fill it with love and joy!  Penny's smile and wag will fill your heart to the brim!

Jack

Jack is a gorgeous 3 year old, 84 pound black lab mix that is as loving as he is beautiful! Surrendered by the family he had known for his whole life because they moved and could not bring him along.  Jack is as comfortable going for rides in the car as he is going for hikes in the woods. He is crate trained, house trained, knows basic commands and is ready for a family of his own. Jack is in a loving foster home and is a volunteer favorite. We feel that due to his size  a household without young children would be best.  If you are looking for a handsome lab to complete your active family, look no further.

Kilee

Kilee was surrendered to us when her owner was in a no win situation. This girl was loved her whole life by a family and surrendering her was not an easy decision. We have taken this sweet 11 year old girl and placed her in a loving foster home where she is adjusting very well. Kilee is laid back and is as sweet as they come. If you are looking for a good companion here is your girl. She is gentle with children and loves all people. The best home for Kilee would be one where she can be the queen of her castle as she chooses her dog friends carefully. No cats for our girl either.

Shadow

Shadow is a beautiful Australian Cattle Dog mix that was surrendered by his owner because he did not have time for him. He was adopted at 6 months old and given no training or guidance. By 9 months old his owner surrendered him to the shelter to fend for himself. We took Shadow into our rescue and felt he needed some training. He is now ready for a foster or an adopted willing to continue what he has learned. Shadow needs exercise and stimulation as do all dogs of his breed. He will need an experienced owner and a quieter home Shadow loves all dogs and excels with any pack. This boy is loving and loyal and just needs someone who will show him that the world is not such a frightening place.
