Skippy is a 7 year old Poodle mix that came to us from a hoarding situation. He is understandbly a little shy, and will need a patient family to help bring him out of his shell. He is very bonded to his housemate Slappy (also pictured) so we are looking to adopt them out as a pair. Feel free to visit them anytime during business hours. We are open daily from 12 - 4 pm with extended hours until 7 pm on Weds. 9/24/18 10:34 AM

Taco is a super friendly guy. He walks well on his lead and is super friendly. But, he is also laid back in his run and just plays with toys. He will stop during his walks just to get some love and truly appreciates all and any attention. Taco likes other dogs but a meet and greet would be necessary. 9/24/18 10:34 AM

Slappy is a 7 year old Poodle mix that came to us from a hoarding situation. Slappy is a little more outgoing than his housemate Skippy, but will still need a patient family to allow him to get used to them and his new environment.

Okaeri (FKA Fancy) is a 6-7 year old gorgeous Shiba Inu who has a tough history. Our shelter received calls about seeing a dog in the woods for over a year. Each time we went to look we saw nothing. We did finally spot her lounging by the Rariran River, but we couldn't even get within 100 yards before she bolted. We kept setting dog traps in different locations but never had any luck. Finally, a resident kept seeing her in their yard. They allowed us to set the trap there. After several days, she went in! Through her microchip, we were able to contact her family who told us she had been missing for almost two years! They couldn't believe she was alive. They had adopted her and only had her for a year. She had run away multiple times, but they always found her, until that last time. This sweet, quiet dog had been fending for herself in the woods the entire time. The family decided they could not give her the kind of home she needed, so they allowed us to keep her and give her the help she needed. We took her immediately to Somerset Vet Group for a thorough exam. While she had a minor injury and some tick born diseases, overall she was physically ok. Her emotional state was not as good. She was fearful and painfully shy. No wonder given the two years she spent alone. We were able to find an amazing foster home for her with a professional trainer who also has Shiba Inu experience. During her months in foster care, she has started to regain a fun and playful side. She absolutely loves to be around other dogs, and will do best in an dog saavy, experienced home with other dogs. Okaeri is still a flight risk, so a secure fenced in yard is a must. If you would like to learn more about Okaeri, stop by the shelter or give us a call. She is an amazing dog who deserves a new beginning! 9/24/18 10:34 AM

Jace is an adult Border Collie mix that is looking for a new home. He would do best with older children as he is high energy, and a bit mouthy, so he may be too much for smaller children. Visit him today, we are open daily from 12 - 4 pm with extended hours until 7 pm on Weds. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram @somersetregionalanimalshelter 9/24/18 10:34 AM

Shiloh is an amazingly beautiful and sweet 3 year old female. She came to us listed as a Chocolate Lab, but we feel she is an Australian Kelpie Mix. She has a gorgeous coat of chocolate fur, and she simply melts into your arms. She is shy with new people, but once she trusts you she is playful, loving and faithful. Shiloh was stressed in the shelter, so we were lucky enough to place her into a great foster home. She is much more relaxed there, and is working on learning her potty training. It seems she was most likely living in a kennel most of her life. She is making great progress! If you would like to meet this stunning and lovable girl, please call us to make an appointment, as she is in her foster home which is very near the shelter. 908-725-0308 9/24/18 10:34 AM

Hello everyone…my name is Kate, and I am a 2-4 year old Foxhound/hound mix. I am a medium size dog, and just a pretty as can be. My markings are fabulous in tan, white and black. I am a nose to the ground hound, and with a little training, could be an excellent hunting companion. I am a sporty gal, who loves activity, but I can also be laid back. I have that hound howl, and I know when to use it! I can be a little shy with strangers, but I warm up quickly. I love my daily walks with the shelter volunteers…they are amazing people who give the best care and an enormous amount of love. My hound mix makes me a wonderful family companion. I really am the perfect pet for runners, joggers, hunters or a family with a large fenced in space. I am a country girl at heart, and would love to live out in the wide, open spaces. I love my exercise and being super active keeps me in great shape. I can be a little stubborn and independent, so you will need to be firm and consistent with my training. I am smart, and I will listen if you take the time needed to build up my confidence and teach me good manners. The great news is that I am house trained. The volunteers tell me that I am spayed, micro-chipped and up to date with my shots. If you are looking for an active, goofy playmate, I am your gal. Please come down to the shelter and ask to spend some time with me. I was adopted once but my owner said I was a bit destructive when I was left alone, so I may do better in a home where people are around a lot. I was lonely and bored, but I'm not sure. We are open daily from 12 - 4 pm with extended hours until 7 pm on Weds. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram @somersetregionalanimalshelter 9/24/18 10:34 AM
