I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Neglected Norton's Story...
When we first rescued Norton, he was in such bad shape we weren't sure if he was going to even survive. This poor tiny dog was found abandoned and brought to an area shelter in horrific shape. Filthy mats covered every inch of him, and when we started shaving them we actually found green moldy fur underneath from being dirty and wet for so long. He was completely emaciated, having trouble using his back legs, and was so weak he would just flop on his side as if he had given up. We rushed him right to our vet to get him the care he needed. We originally thought he may have been hit by a car or contracted a virus, but his x-rays revealed no broken bones and bloodwork was normal- his issues were caused by pure neglect and starvation. Our vets shaved him and under all that hair was a very young purebred shih tzu, probably only about 1-2 years old. Slowly he started to gain weight and gain back his strength, and after 2 weeks of regular meals and TLC he is a happy playful active little guy ready for a home. He is a tiny shih tzu and should probably be about 12 pounds at his ideal weight, and has an unusual brindle color. He gets along with most other dogs and is a spunky fiesty little guy who fought to survive the deplorable condition of his past. Norton is looking for an adult household where he will get proper care and training for the rest of his life. Please submit an application from our homepage www.secondchance.petfinder.com if you are interested in this special little guy. Or please consider donating toward his medical bills so we can continue to rescue and nurse back to health others like him. Thank you!
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.
