Paws 2 Your Heart Holly is a 2-year-old dog who is great with other dogs and kids. She entered a West Virginia Shelter with her puppy; someone came and rescued the pup, but left Holly behind to be euthanized. Paws 2 Your Heart gave her a second chance. Holly is very sweet and looking for a home to call her own. She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all shots. Penny is a 9-month-old plott hound mix who is great with other dogs, kids, and playful cats. She is house trained, crate trained, and working on basic obedience. Her foster mom says she would be a perfect fit in any home and would be awesome on the agility courses. Penny is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all shots. To learn more about Holly, Penny, or Paws 2 Your Heart, visit, or call 973-271-6897. Eleventh Hour Rescue Marcus is a 2-year-old boxer/hound mix who was found as a stray in Georgia and infected by heartworm. He has come a long way, both geographically to New Jersey and also medically since he’s cured and ready for a new home. Marcus is a sweet guy with lots of energy and personality. He’s a man of action and he prefers to be surrounded with lots of toys, and lots of family to play with him. At the same time, he’s able to kick back and relax too when the moment calls for quiet time. Helen is the perfect dog if you’re looking for a great walking, running, or just lying-on-a-blanket-next-to-me-while-I-work companion. If you take her for walks and stroke her soft, short fur and floppy brown ears, she’ll be your forever friend. She loves walking, chasing after a squeaky toy, and belly rubs. Helen would love to get all the attention and be the Queen of the Castle; a home without other dogs is preferred. She is unsure around younger children’s fast movements and desire to hug her, so a home without children or with kids over nine years old is also strongly preferred. Helen has no sleep issues; sometimes, her owners had to be the ones to wake her up in the morning. She is fully housebroken and hardly sheds. To learn more about Marcus, Helen, or Eleventh Hour Rescue, visit, email, or call 973-664-0865. One Step Closer Animal Rescue (OSCAR) Allie is a 10-month-old lab/shepherd mix. She is very sweet, but a shy girl. Allie is starting to trust people more. Her foster mom has a fenced-in yard and she loves running around with her other canine friend. Allie loves to play and is learning that human attention is a good thing. Sidney is a six month-old medium-size lab mix. She is working really hard on housetraining and is close to being fully trained. Sidney loves treats and enjoys taking walks. She also loves toys and playtime. She is active and would to great with a moderate to active family, but she does like nap time too. Sidney is a special girl.
