Facts about Bertha

  • Breed: Whippet/Jack Russell Terrier Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
UPDATE 7-11-16: After a month in foster care Bertha has made a lot of progress! She is an energetic girl who now lives human attention and loves to play with toys. She's doing well with crate-training and housebreaking and would be fine as an only pet or with a compatible doggie friend. Email njwoof@cs.com if you are interested in fostering or adopting.

. Bertha is another of the Hopatcong hoarder dogs and is timid but sweet natured and learning to enjoy attention. She looks like she's had many litters of pups over the years and was covered in feces and urine staining from a lifetime living in filth. We think she's a Jack Russell/whippet mix? About 25lbs full grown and 5-6 years old.

Having the opportunity to help frightened neglected dogs like these learn trust and enjoy their lives is the most rewarding part of rescue and reminds us of why we keep doing what we do, and we are looking forward to watching these special dogs' true personalities start to emerge as they feel safe.

So we can continue to help more like them!

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.

Our Adoption Process...

We request that adopters fill out a pre-adoption application either in person at our adoption day or through our website www.secondchance.petfinder.com. This helps us make sure the animal's personality is a good match for your household. Adoption fees vary according to the dog's age, breed, adoptability, and how much we have had to spend in vet bill on them. Adopters sign a contract at the time of adoption, and the animal must come back to us if they do not work out in the home.
