Gummy Bear and 8 of her siblings (all staffy/chihuahua! mixes believe it or not!) were living in filthy conditions in a yard in Yonkers and being given away for free on Craig's List when luckily the local shelter stepped in and took them all. She is only 14 months old and was never socialized outside her yard- she is the most terrified of the group and was clinging to the back of her cage in the shelter when we met her, so we knew we had to help her! She will need a special calmer home that will be patient in socializing her and teaching her to trust, and would do well in a home with a friendly social dog to help her feel more comfortable. She is only about 20-25lbs full grown and looks just like a shrunken pit bull:) Please submit an application if you can give her the safe loving home she deserves to make up for a rough start in life....
We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage www.secondchance.petfinder.com and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.
