It’s graduation day at the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center! Two wonderful Chihuahuas have completed our treatment program for fearful, under-socialized dogs and are now ready to be adopted into loving homes.

If you’re ready for today’s most adorable sandwich, meet Peanut Butter and Jelly:

Peanut Butter: Peanut Butter (pictured right) was one of 200 animals rescued from a hoarding situation in Howell, New Jersey. At the ASPCA Rehabilitation Center, the four-year-old Chihuahua received intensive treatment for symptoms of fear and defensiveness. Though he is occasionally nervous about being handled by strangers, he enjoys being pet by familiar friends. Peanut Butter has come a long way in his recovery, and he cannot wait to settle in to a warm, loving home.

Jelly: Sweet little Jelly (pictured below) was rescued from the same hoarding situation as Peanut Butter. After several weeks of treatment with our staff at the ASPCA Rehabilitation Center, this four-year-old Chihuahua has learned to enjoy meeting new people and showing off her striking chocolate coat and tan face. Though she is shy, she has blossomed into a loving companion who is eager to start a new life in her first real “forever home.”

Both Peanut Butter and Jelly are ready for a new life.  They are currently under care of the Animal Alliance foster network in New Jersey, and would do best in homes with experienced adult adopters. If you’re interested in meeting PB or J, please contact Animal Alliance by email at [email protected] or by phone: (609) 818-1952.
