About Sunshine

Adoption Fee: $450.00

Sunshine is a 4-year-old, 7.5-pound chihuahua mix. She’s loves attention and her happy place is right by your side. Sunshine had a wonderful first 4 years of her life, living in a quiet rural home with her elderly owner. However, she was tragically left alone in her home for about 6 weeks when her owner passed, and she's learning to trust and open up again.

Sunshine needs a quiet home where she’s the main attraction and doesn’t have to share you with other pets (or many other people). She is a little nervous at first but really starts to blossom and shine when she gains confidence and feels secure in her surroundings. She is at her best when she knows her boundaries so she requires some patience and training in the beginning. While she has not bitten, when she is pushed past her comfort zone, she can be snappy, so she needs an understanding owner who has experience and patience.

Once she bonds with you she will never be far from your side. Her hobbies include napping, eating snacks, and sitting on your lap for head scratches. We are working on getting her weight down so small meals in the morning and evening are her schedule, as well as low-fat snacks. She gets a treat here and there for good behavior but her absolute favorite reward is a nice scratching or lap time with you.

Sunshine, while blossoming in her foster home, has not yet been outside on a leash and uses wee pads like a champ. She is a bit nervous at handling, so we need an understanding adopter who will continue to work on her training. 

Vaccinated for rabies and DHPP. Spayed. Needs microchip.

Meet Deidra! Deidra is a 1-2 year old petite lab mix weighing in at 30-ish pounds. Like many dogs, Deidra's journey to finding her forever home has not been easy. Upon arrival in NYC two months ago, Deidra was hit by a car. She broke her pelvis and needed a tail amputation. Two months post accident and a little less tail, Deidra is blossoming into a whole new dog! She has been vacationing at her foster home in New Jersey, where she has been showing her humans her adorable personality. She loves to give kisses, get belly rubs, and explore her backyard.  Due to Deidra's nerves in the city, we believe a suburban home would be best. While we think she would do fine as an only pet, another friendly dog would do wonders to help her confidence as she comes out of her recovery. If you are interested in D, please apply today! Vaccinated for rabies, DAPPv, bordatella. Spayed. Needs microchip.  Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails!

Kelly is a 10-weeks, 12-pounds female xolo mix puppy from Alabama. This wonderful little girl loves to play with toys especially tennis balls. She entertains herself very nicely but also loves playing with her humans. Kelly is fearless and feisty with playtime and fetch, but also enjoys snuggle time, insisting on being part of TV couch time. She loves bringing her bones and bully sticks on the couch to bury and hide them in blankets for later use - not quite as sneaky as she thinks she is! Sweet Kelly has been great with pee pad training, and has grown to love the safety of her crate - especially piling her toys in there and retreating during a game of chase. Each night she is more comfortable sleeping in her crate, whining less at bedtime. A home with another playful pup would be great but is not a must - Kelly is friendly and loves meeting new people. Her super cute trademark ears make her look like a fox when they stand upright. Her foster mom is not ashamed of her many nicknames including Kell Bell, The Jet, Kelly Belly, Kell Belichick, Miss Kelly, Kelly Girl, and Danger Kell. This precious pup had a pretty severe case of non-contagious demodex mange before arrival that has pretty much healed.  Vaccinated for DAPP on 10/23, needs booster on 11/20. Microchipped. Needs spay and rabies vaccine. Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention due 11/19. Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails!

Scout is 4-ish years, 10-pound neutered male terrier mix from the NYC shelter, now in our foster care. Scout comes to us with a bite history, but continues to make tremendous progress every day with his patient foster mom and is proving to be a smart, funny and lovable little guy. He craves affection likely missing in his previous life, but still has some trust issues. Scout needs a home with NO dogs or cats and NO children, with someone patient and consistently committed to working on his behavioral issues - and this person will be rewarded with love in return! He is mostly pee pad trained, but needs harness and leash conditioning until he can be walked outside. Scout has recently learned how much he LOVES playing fetch! Waggytail will cover some sessions with our approved behavioral trainer for this special boy.  Vaccinated for rabies, DA2PP, and bordetella. Neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative.  Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails!
