Opal is a beautiful 6 year old female German Shepherd. German Shepherd dogs are known for their strength, obedience and courage. They are valued for their tenacity, intelligence, loyalty and focus. Our Opal came to us with 3 other GSD’s who all need loving homes. These majestic dogs were living in an over-populated house, and received little to no direction or training. Opal has emerged as the clown of this small pack. She is a 6 year old, 62 pound, tan/black/white beauty. She is literally a goofball, and is not afraid to show her humorous side. As the eldest of her group, we believe Opal used her humor to keep her pack feeling safe and secure. She was definitely the nurturer. Opal has a tremendous capacity for learning. Her instincts are spot on. She loves being outdoors, and finds car rides to be amazing. She is so friendly and sweet. Don’t let her age fool you, as she is still a very active dog. Opal will make a wonderful family pet. As with all the members of her little group, she will need some patience and training. She is adaptable to all situations, and will learn quickly. If you have other dogs in your household, a meet and greet will be necessary to be sure that she gets along with everyone. Opal loves the attention that she receives from the volunteers at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter. Her favorite activity thus far has been her grooming session. This girl loves a good pampering! She had no issues with being bathed, dried and brushed. We think she would have enjoyed a whole day of that (what girl wouldn’t?!#). Opal is spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on her shots. If you have the time and patience to train this loving, beautiful dog, she will be your loyal companion for life. Come down and meet our sweet, sweet Opal… 8/18/17 10:32 PM

Callie is a sweet and loving 1 year old female mix. Okay, so I know it is obvious from my pictures…I am such a poser! Maybe I overdo it a bit…do you think the tongue is too much? Should I hold back a little? It is just that I get so excited when people are paying attention to me. The photographer in my photo shoot had a blast with me…I could have had my picture taken all day. However, I want to emphatically state at this moment that I am not a HAM! Hmmm, well, okay…maybe just a little ham…. My name is Callie, and they tell me that I am a shepherd mix. I have no idea what other dog breeds are in my makeup, but I do know that I am a beauty. Aside from being humble (and snarky), I am friendly and active. My shelter mates call me the life of the party. I cannot help myself, as I just always want to be in the thick of things. I have been at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter for a couple of months now, and although I will miss everyone terribly, I think it is time for me to find my forever home. Every time the door to the shelter opens, all kinds of thoughts go through my mind. ‘Will this person be the one? Does this family want someone like me? The next one…the next one will adopt me!’ I try to hide my bed sheet that I have just torn in boredom and frustration. I make a concerted effort to not to get too mouthy, but sometimes I just get so excited. The point is, I am really trying. I am a smart and happy girl who has an enormous capacity to learn. My person needs to teach me, train me, and take the time and patience with me that will make me their loyal companion for life. I love big dogs and I am also good with cats, although a meet and greet will be necessary to make sure that we all get along. I would prefer to be around older kids who know how to behave around a dog. I am spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on my shots. If you are a big hearted, generous-with-your-time kind of person, I know we can make it work. Please come down to the shelter and take me for a walk. I will be waiting patiently… Come down and meet her between 12-4 all week and until 7pm on Wednesdays! 8/18/17 10:32 PM

  • Prefers home without small kids
Age: Young
Sex: Female
Size: Medium
I don’t think we have ever had a dog more appropriately named than this little girl. Sassy is a one of a kind. She is a 1.5 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix, and we can assure you that she embodies every trait of the Jack Russell. She is as lively and independent as they get. Sassy has boundless energy and needs a household where she can get lots of exercise. She is smart and super athletic. She jumps to new heights all the time, and with the right trainer, would make a fantastic agility dog. The best possible adopter for Sassy would be someone familiar with the Jack Russell traits. Someone with time, patience, a strong sense of humor. Being educated is the only way to be a great dog owner. Sassy will test you, but in the end, you will win and she will become an amazing, loyal member of your family. Sassy is good with male dogs, but does not have an affinity for females, which is typical of the breed. She loves her squeaky toys the most, and can play for long periods of time. Sassy has been with us since April of 2017, and we feel she is very ready for her forever home. If you are active, and into sports, this is your dog! She will keep you on your toes, and her entertaining antics will keep you laughing. She is spayed, up to date with shots, house trained, and micro-chipped. Come down and meet our Sassy girl. Come down and meet her today between 12-4 or until 7pm on Wednesdays! 8/18/17 10:32 PM

  • Labrador Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

Age: Young
Sex: Female
Size: Medium
When I think of the name ‘Remy’, I think of cognac…smooth and easy. I picture a chair, near a crackling fireplace with a great book and a dog by my side. Can you picture it? Well, now that I have lulled you into complete sense of peace…the dog near that chair is not our Remy! HA! Our Remy is a spitfire of a girl. She is a 1 ½ year old Plott Hound/Lab mix with a beautiful brindle coat. She is a medium dog at approximately 55 pounds. I would like to say ‘calling all trainers’, because Remy is still a puppy in so many ways, and she loses her focus. If you have ever seen the movie ’50 First Dates’, Remy is Drew Barrymore. She forgets quickly and needs to be reminded. As with the Plott Hound breed, Remy can be super affectionate and very sensitive. Another trait of the Plott is being ‘mouthy’. She needs to be reminded that that is not okay. She will not break skin, but she can play a little rough, especially when she gets over stimulated. A quick toy in the mouth usually solves that issue. Remy has spent the first year of her life in a shelter, and then the following 6 months in foster care. The good news is that her foster daddy is a trainer, and Remy has come a long way. It is important to note that she still has some work to do. The best possible adopter for Remy will be someone who is willing to put in the time to help her reach her potential. Her foster mommy loves her, and has told us that she is absolutely the best hugger ever. She actually wraps her legs around you and gives hugs. Remy loves to walk and seek adventure. She is truly an engaging dog. Our Remy is good with other dogs who are larger than she is, but she is not a cat lover. It would be best if she went to a home with no young/small children. She is spayed, micro-chipped, crate trained and up to date on her shots. Remy is 75% house trained, and we believe that is only because she has spent so much of the first year of her life at a shelter. She will need guidance in that area for sure. Remy is a diamond in the rough. We see her potential every day. This is a dog who wants to be loved and once trained, will be the jewel of your house hold. Since she is in foster care, please call to make an appointment to meet this special girl. Remy is living in a foster home working on her training, so an appointment is needed to meet her. Call 908-725-0308 to meet this beautiful girl. 8/18/17 10:32 PM

Meet our Bella. She is a 3 year old Boxer mix at 55 lbs (brown, white and black coat). She has been at our shelter since April 1, 2017, so it is definitely time for our special girl to find her forever home. Bella is a sweetheart who loves attention. She wants to please and is incredibly smart. She is curious about everything, and just loves to explore the world around her. She would be an amazing hiking or exercise companion, as she loves to take long walks. She is a playful girl…full of energy and spunk. Bella is lucky to be with the volunteers at SRAS. They shower her with the love and attention that she deserves. Even though she will miss her friends at the shelter, she is ready to go home. Ready for the affections of her own family. She will usually only bark when she has something important to tell you, so she would make a terrific watch dog. She also wants you to know that she loves her squeaky toys and her comfy bed. Bella has been spayed, is up to date on her shots, house trained, crate trained and micro-chipped. She does not prefer the company of cats, but loves large male dogs. A meet and greet is necessary if there are any other animals in the house. This adorable girl is just waiting for her new forever family. Please stop by and see our Bella girl… Come down and meet her today from 12-4 and until 7pm on Wednesdays! 8/18/17 10:32 PM
