    Petey

    Petey is an approximately 4-year-old terrier mix. He was originally found as a stray in Staten Island and briefly lived with a family in Freehold. He can be a little shy at first, but warms up quickly, and can be quite the ladies' man! He likes snuggling and pretending like he's a lap dog. He loves to play, especially with tennis balls, and knows many commands like 'sit,' 'stay,' and 'come.' He is okay with cats but may not get along with another dog.

    Dixie

    Dixie is a very social 2-year-old terrier mix who will greet anyone who wants to be her friend. She does tend to get excited and jump on people, and she loves to play, especially with tennis balls! Dixie doesn't know her own size, and thinks she's a lap dog. She'd love to curl up on you if you'll let her! Dixie loves to go on long walks and is also well-behaved in the car. Dixie likes being the center of attention and needs to be the only pet in the home.

    Brutis

    Brutis is a playful, 3 1/2 year old Hound mix who loves car rides and walks in the park. He can be a little shy at first, but is very affectionate once he gets to know you. He loves to be pet and will give plenty of kisses in return! Brutis loves other dogs, and would be a great match with a playful doggie sibling. Sometimes Brutis tries to be a little mischievous, but he'll tire himself out and then snuggle up for a long nap! He's really just a happy boy!
