8/27/23 update on Quentin:
Tiny Quentin has come a long way from the terrified dramatically screaming and snapping partially hairless little guy who first came to us, and is looking for his perfect forever home!
This shy young little one still can be nervous with strangers and fast movements, but once he bonds he’s a lovable cuddler with his people. He’s gained a lot of confidence from watching the other dogs in his foster home and will definitely need a calmer home with at least one other little dog in the household to help with some of his fears. For a little guy he has a BIG mouth, and will loudly sound the alarm when he sees or hears any threats approaching your home- serial killers, delivery men, friendly neighbors: they all fall in the same category of potential danger ⚠️ as far as this tiny man is concerned. Apartments or city environment would probably freak him out a bit too much (and anger your neighbors) he’s more of a suburban kind of guy.

Introducing Quentin! This tiny scared young man’s previous life must have been a bit of a horror movie before he found his way to a local shelter, and he came to use screaming and snapping, skinny, covered in likely contagious mange, with dewclaws curled completely around and puncturing and actually growing through his skin. There’s probably a reason why thumb-piercing isn’t a thing and it was quite painful just looking at it 🤢.
Flash forward after a few weeks isolated in our care and medically he’s a new man! He’s been eating well, hair starting to grow back, nails cut and sores healed, ear infections treated, and gaining weight!
Psychologically, he’s still a bit scarred from whatever occurred or didn’t occur in his past home, and he’s a very scared panicky guy but warming up and wants to be sweet. He’s only 7lbs, about 2 years old or less, and has been neutered and updated on shots. We think he’s some kind of longhair doxie/chi/spaniel mix maybe but could be any toy breed combo, and is looking for a quiet patient adult home that will let him come to them at his own pace.

Since COVID-19, we are no longer holding our Sunday adoption events until further notice, but we are scheduling meet and greet appointments with a specific dog or dogs at our meeting spots in Northern NJ. To streamline adoptions, all communication before, during, and after the adoption process is done through email only: we have limited volunteers able to return phone calls. Submit an application from our website www.secondchance.petfinder.com to speed up the adoption process and email any questions to us at email@example.com. Please check your email regularly for next steps. All our dogs reside in foster care in Northern NJ until adoption and we do not have a central shelter location. We are a small all-volunteer organization focused on rescuing local dogs from area shelters, as well as accepting some surrenders and puppy mill rescues.
