Foster

Foster may be a little slow to warm up to new people but he’s definitely worth it once you earn his trust. This little snaggle tooth Shih Tzu loves to play fetch, chew on his bones, take baths and curl up on a comfy bed. Sudden movement tends to startle him so a home with …

Diamond

We rescued Diamond immediately after Hurricane Sandy and this adorable girl has been searching for a home ever since.
