New Jersey is famous for a lot of things: big hair, boardwalks, dubious spellings of the word “posche” (pronounced posh, natch), and women who drink lobster bisque out of a straw. (We love you Siggy Flicker!) And while we look forward to all that and more on the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, we are bringing you a fix of New Jersey excitement early courtesy of One Love Animal Rescue.
Today’s installment of The Real Shelter Dogs do not technically hail from a shelter, but instead One Love Animal Rescue is comprised of a network of volunteers who foster animals rescued from overcrowded shelters. In addition to finding the rescued animals forever homes, they also focus on rehabilitation before rehoming the dogs, giving them the training, care and love they need to be successful Good Dogs.
And now, grab your soup straw and meet your Real Shelter Dogs, complete with opening-credits worthy taglines!
