IMPORTANT 4/19 HAUL AND ADOPTION DAY NOTICE - POSTPONED!!!
Tilly ~ FEATURED DOG ~ Astartrickytilly "Tilly"

Tilly arrived in NJ from Florida on 1/25/14 - a happy, well cared for, healthy girl. Initially Tilly was in the Prison Foster Program, now she is in a foster home and doing great! 

Tilly is a happy, happy girl, glad to be in the middle of the action, even if she has to instigate it!  We have had her for three weeks with absolutely no housebreaking issues...she was good from the get-go.  I give a lot of credit to the Prison Program where Tilly was transitioned from the racing life to the good life of leisure.  She tries to hop in the car at every opportunity hoping to get a walk in the park or just a spin around the neighborhood.  Tilly mastered the inside staircase quickly and goes where she pleases in the house but she also crates up with no problem...she is not fond of the Dustbuster and did pounce on it while I was cleaning up some dirt she had tracked in and surprised the both of us so I keep "them" separated.   She gets along fabulously with our other grey, Cooper, and the two of them willingly share toys.  She hasn't met any children yet but greets any adult who come into the house as a long lost friend.  Tilly will make a loving addition to any home where she is included in the activities.

 
IMPORTANT HAUL AND ADOPTION DAY NOTICE - POSTPONED!!!
Due to continuing mechanical problems with the truck of the greyhound hauler, the decision was make to postone picking up the new dogs until the truck was further evaluated.  Safety of the dogs is most important to everyone!  It is hoped that by next week things will be back to normal
and running smoothly.

ADOPTION DAY for Saturday, April 19th is POSTPONED until further notice...stay tuned!
