New Jersey Aid for Animals advisory board member Kelly Matthews, a Gloucester Township resident, submitted the following to Patch:
Meet Hooch! He's a lover for sure and wants nothing more than to be with people. Hooch is a pit mix, tan in color, neutered and up to date on all shots. He weighs about 40 pounds and has white toes and makes the funniest faces, which is why we named him Hooch! Currently he is spending his days goofing off with his friend Pluto, who you will meet next week, so we know he's great with other dogs. The most noticeable trait Hooch has is his willingness to please—he just wants to make his "person" happy.
Hooch would do best in a home with no cats since he did have problems with them at one time. He will need a fenced-in yard and a family that is willing to finish out his basic training. As you can see from his pictures, he loves nothing more than to play and show off his goofy side. If you are unable to adopt Hooch but know of someone who can, please share this article with them.
To fill out an application to bring Hooch home, please go here.
UPDATE: Ruby, featured as the Aug. 5 "Patch/NJ Aid for Animals Pet of the Week," has been adopted! We would like to thank the folks at Camp Bow Wow, Brittany, and the readers for helping her find a new home!
