Tobias- 3 legs's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Tobias- 3 legs's Story...
Poor little Tobias was found on the side of a road with a badly damaged leg, presumably hit by a car. A good Samaritan found him and took him to a veterinary hospital and once stable he was brought to a local shelter. No owner came looking for him so now he is with us. He is a very sweet and mellow cuddly little older man. His leg had severe neurological damage which was causing him pain and he needed to have it amputated. He's learning to walk on three legs and getting better each day.Tobias is looking for, and someone who will love him and keep him safe for the rest of his life. Please email njwoof@cs.com if you're interested.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tobias- 3 legs, a Oak Ridge Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu for sale in Oak Ridge, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Oak Ridge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Ridge already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oak Ridge breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shih Tzu breeders who help with Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
