Age: Senior

Hello there….my name is Chester. Some people would call me a ‘senior’ at 11 years old, but I beg to differ. I am a spry old guy and have lots of living left to do. I am a blonde & white haired Chihuahua, and in case you were wondering, the answer is ‘yes…blondes do have more fun!’ I am a bit stocky for my size (approximately 13 pounds), but I am packing a whole lot of power into this small frame. I like my dog friends, but would prefer if they were small like me. The wonderful volunteers here at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter have not yet tested me with cats. As with all adoptions, if you have dogs in your home, I would very much like to meet them before you settle on me. Yes, I know, I am a popular guy and you will want to snatch me up right away, but let’s be smart about this. I would like to meet your entire family, pets and all. I am crate trained, neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on my shots. I take a little medication for a skin rash. My peeps here at the shelter are still determining if I have an allergy. Seriously, anyone can adopt a puppy, but only ONE family can adopt me, and I am fabulous. I am not really toy motivated, but I do love my treats. Hey, I know what you are thinking, but I am careful. I would hate to ruin my outstanding physique. I am a playful, sweet guy just looking for his forever home. Take a chance…come on down and meet with me. 7/20/17 5:50 PM

Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Excuse me…hey…over here…can we talk? I have a bone to pick with you, which in doggie-talk means, ‘let’s pick at a bone together…I can share!’ My name is Bo, and I am a 6 year old Beagle mix. I am not sure what happened to me. One minute I was in a happy home, and the next I was here…did I get too old? Hog-wash…I am still a spry young guy! A spring chicken if you will. I have not reached the ‘twilight of my life’ yet, and have lots of years of love to give.E I am a nose to the ground hound, and can sniff out just about anything. Hey, that is a serious talent where I come from. I can be a bit clingy, but that is to be expected after what I have been through. Once I am with my forever family, and feeling the love, that should dissipate. I have only been here at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter for a week, but it seems I do ok with both dogs and cats. They tell me I am a sweetheart, which of course I already knew, but I love it when they tell me that. I have a sexy, raspy bark thing going for me, and I have true Beagle tri coloring. My markings are quite handsome. I don’t know why, but I am not a toy guy. I guess the sniffing and exploring get in the way of that doggie ritual. I am neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on my shots. I would love to take a walk with you and tell you more about me. Come on down for a visit. 7/20/17 5:50 PM

  • Terrier

Age: Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Medium
Hello there. My name is Murphy and I am an 8 ½ year old Terrier mix. The volunteers here at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter think that I might have some Beagle in me, but hey, no one really knows for sure. I have this great brown/tan coloring, and some seriously soulful eyes. I know what you are thinking…hmmmm, 8 ½…too old. Well, I am here to tell you that I am an active senior, and should not be overlooked. I am a wiggly, happy, social boy who does well with other small dogs. I really enjoy fetching tennis balls! I have met many children since I've been here, and they all seem to like my style. If I had a fault, I guess it would be that I really am not interested in living with a cat. To each his own…that is what I always say! Now, look at my pictures again…do you see that smile?! I have the best smile on the planet. I share it with everyone. I am so outgoing and friendly. Oh gosh, there I go again, trying to sell myself. I should not have to, really, because I am truly amazing. I will sit with you and watch your favorite shows. I will lovingly accept belly rubs. I am low maintenance too. I am not a real toy guy, so you will not find them scattered around the house. I am just a soft, lovable dog in the prime of his life. The volunteers tell me that I am neutered (geez), micro-chipped and up to date on my shots. I am crate trained and house trained as well. It really does not get any better than this. Come down and take me for a walk...I promise not to disappoint. 7/20/17 5:50 PM

  • Pit Bull Terrier

Age: Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Large
Calling all love bug lovers! Our Miz Mae is a gentle and sweet American Pitbull mix. She is 3 years old and has spent most of her life having litters of pups. She is medium in size, about 56 pounds. Her coat is a gorgeous gray and her light eyes will melt your heart. As with most Pitbulls, her body wriggles with excitement. She seems to be always happy and rarely barks…a calm girl with a wonderful disposition. I am sure that that is the ‘mommy’ in her. Miz Mae has a soft mouth, and will be very gentle when taking a treat from you. She knows her basic commands, and it is easy to see that she loves to learn, and would be eager to continue her education to be the best dog ever. She is highly motivated to please her person. She can be a bit of a couch potato, and we love that about her. She adores sitting with you when you watch your favorite shows. When we take her out for walks, she likes nothing more than to lie in the grass and watch the kids playing soccer near the shelter. Miz Mae is not a cat enthusiast, so she would do better in a home where there are none. She loves large male dogs who are calm like her. Miz Mae is spayed, micro-chipped, house & crate trained and up to date on her shots. She has devoted her life to giving life, and now it is her time to rest and be loved for the wonderful girl that she is. This special lady is a true rescue in every sense of the word. Come down and meet our little love bug. 7/20/17 5:50 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! 7/20/17 5:50 PM

Age: Adult
Sex: Female

Meet our Bella. She is a 3 year old Boxer mix at 55 lbs (brown, white and black coat). Sweet Bella was adopted in September. The couple that adopted her had a baby soon after, and could no longer care for her. She has been at our shelter since April 1, 2017. Bella is a sweetheart who loves attention. She wants to please and is incredibly smart. It is so difficult for a dog to be given the promise of love, and then have it taken away. Even though our Bella is highly intelligent, she can never fully understand why she was placed back in the shelter after receiving love in her family’s home. Bella is lucky to be with the volunteers at SRAS. They shower her with the love and attention that she deserves. Bella is active, and playful…full of energy and spunk. She is very athletic, and barks if she needs to tell you something important. She would make a terrific watch dog. 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 is not good with cats, but loves to play with large male dogs. 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! 7/20/17 5:50 PM

Age: Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Small
Meet our little ‘Miss Misunderstood’. Carmen is a Miniature Pinscher mix, 4 ½ years old, with a black and tan short hair coat. As with any dog you are looking to adopt/rescue, it is so important to read up on the breed before you make a commitment. Adopting an animal is a pledge of love…one that should not be taken lightly. Carmen embodies all traits of a Min Pin. They are a fearless, energetic, fun loving, and proud breed. Carmen has a part time foster mom who likes to give her a break from the shelter on a regular basis. Below are some observations/notes she has taken over time: One of Carmen’s favorite things is being outside and walking around the neighborhood with lots of time devoted to sniffing and exploring. If there are walls, she will hop up and walk along them, as she is very agile. She can be startled by unexpected stimuli, but not overly sensitive. A little comfort goes a long way with Carmen. I have been working with her when crossing streets and at corners to “wait” and then to “cross now”, and she has picked up on that wonderfully. She is obviously super smart! She is good around my cats who continually try to intimidate her…she has never gone after any of them. She has no food guarding issues. She tends to grab her snack quickly, and I continue to work with her to take it from my hand gently. She eats well and is very treat motivated. Carmen is not destructive and likes her toys. Our Carmen is spayed, micro-chipped, house & crate trained, and up to date on her shots. She would do best in a home with no small/young children. She can also be selective about men, but a little patience goes a long way. All family members should meet her before taking her home. Carmen also likes small dogs. If you have pets at home, a meet and greet will need to take place to be sure that Carmen is the perfect fit with your current animal(s). When given the love and affection that this little girl deserves, she will make an amazing member of your family. Come down and visit…you will be happy you did.

Age: Adult

Meet our Buddy. He is a handsome American Pitbull with beautiful eyes and a gorgeous silver/blue coat. Seriously, look at that face! As beautiful as he is, our Buddy has a secret. He was found as a stray when he was two years old, and rescued almost immediately by the most amazing young man. He was handsome, young and athletic, just like Buddy. They bonded quickly and went everywhere together. There was absolute love between these two, and Buddy was well taken care of. What Buddy does not know is that his person passed away unexpectedly, and there was no family to take him in. Buddy was returned to the Somerset Animal Shelter at 4 ½ years old. He is a resilient boy, and tries to be strong, but each day the door opens at the shelter, you can just see that he is expecting his person to come through it and bring him home. Buddy sometimes turns away, but it is not because he is anti-social. Imagine if this happened to you. Imagine not knowing why you were placed here, and where your favorite, beloved person has gone. No one tries harder than Buddy to understand. He has been at the shelter now since the end of March, and we so want to find his new family. The good news is that Buddy has an incredible smile (just look at that mug). His whole face lights up when he plays in the yard…the other dogs are jealous of that million dollar smile. His body wriggles in delight when he plays and chews his bully stick (or any food dispensing toys). He is somewhat of a couch potato, but gives kisses freely when he is comfortable with you, although he is not a cuddle bug. Buddy is starting to thrive with the volunteers who take extra special care of this wonderful boy. Buddy is neutered, up to date on shots, house trained and micro-chipped. Buddy does get along with other dogs, but a meet and greet with a potential sibling is required should you consider bringing him home. He is not impressed with cats, so it is best that there are none. We believe older children would be best as well. It will take a family with big hearts to give this boy a home. Please come down and meet him…he is waiting patiently 7/20/17 5:50 PM
