Meet these seven dogs that are all looking to be adopted and find a forever home in North Jersey. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are Chihuahuas who require some extra love and care, as they were rescued from a sensitive situation. Sandy is a young, loving American Bulldog mix, and Wonder is an Irish Wolfhound and Husky mix who is calm, sweet, and lives up to his name. Read on to learn more about these pups and how you can adopt them from the Wise Animal Rescue team.

‘Days of The Week’ Chihuahuas

The ‘Days of the Week Chihuahuas’ came to Wise Animal Rescue from a hoarding situation and need lots of socialization, patience, training, and confidence-building. Due to this, WAR is recommending that only rescue dog-experienced homes apply for adoption. The pups are of various ages, all female, have to be cat-tested, are good with kids 13 and up, are wee-wee pad trained or trained to go outside, do not like being in their crates, and would do best in a quieter environment — as they have some separation anxiety common in dogs that have lived through this type of situation. All adopters must be home more often than not to be considered to adopt one of these girls.
