Pet of the Month:


Lewis was rescued from a TX shelter and is living the good life with his foster mom and siblings.

He found himself in a rural shelter with only a few kennels. Each time a new dog came in, the others were in danger to be put down.  That's how Lewis with his 2 other siblings was saved from the cruel faith.

He was very sick and stayed with his foster mom for a few months before coming to the NJ area. 

Lewis is now a healthy and a total sweetheart who is looking for his forever home and family.

We don't know what a mix of breeds is except for the fact that he is handsome and smart and just a perfect little boy. He is friendly with humans and other dogs. He is house-trained. He knows commands like sit, paw, and down and perfecting his stay command.
Lewis hardly barks and he doesn't chase wildlife hence we believe he will be ok with cats also.

Lewis has been waiting patiently for his forever home.

Lewis is about 7 months old and 41 lbs. He is current on his vaccine schedule and is neutered. His foster mom says he is a total sweetheart!!
