Pet of the Month
Howdy all. My name is “Ellie." I’m a hound mix rescue that lives on Sourland Farm in the beautiful Sourlands Mountains.
I was just a small tiny pup when I was adopted from S.A.V.E. - A Friend of Homeless Animals, in Skillman. The S.A.V.E. shelter was a very nice place to be, but I really dig my new forever home on the farm.
I’m now just over a year old and am really enjoying life. On these dog days of summer, I cool off by lounging in my very own dog pool and chewing on some cold raw carrots or watermelon. I love going for rides in the truck to different places and meeting new people.
My owners haven’t realized it yet, but I run the farm by keeping the chickens and quail safe from predators. I enjoy playing with the chickens and I never “ruff” house with them. I know I’m a hound dog, but I just love playing with my little farm buddies. ■

Hi! My name is Kody. Today I turned 11. It was the best day ever because my hoomans were so nice to me today.
We went on a super long walk and then I got back and ate a giant cookie. It was soooo good.
Please excuse my white beard I wasn’t able to go to the doggy spa because of COVID.
Anyways, I get confused sometimes when my hoomans talk because my mom has a weird British accent and my dad speaks French.
Funny thing is that my hooman sister has the same birthday as me — but my hoomans prefer me.
I am so happy they rescued me, although they always say I rescued them.
Anyways, I am going to take a nap because that cookie was humongous. Love, Kody. ■

Hello my name is Nano, I’m a Coton de Tulear and I’m almost a year old!
I live in loving house with two kids that love to play and cuddle with me and two very caring parents. My hobbies include chasing squirrels, eating all the leaves and grass I can find, and rolling my toys under the couch so someone has to get them for me, I also really like to be carried. I also have a brother Named Charlie who lives with our aunt and Uncle he Is a Coton de Tulear puppy just like me but he is all white and has a Mohawk.
We love to play, wrestle, and run around together. I do get scared of bigger dogs and cars, I hate cars, but I do like the nice breeze from the window. I hope I get chosen, and I hope you enjoyed getting to know me! ■
