Tanner - Starving, Dumped on Busy Highway

When a motorist was approaching the entrance of the Rt. #1 and #9 Southbound entrance from downtown Newark, he quickly spotted a pathetic dog in need of assistance. By the time the need to help this dog registered, the driver was caught up in busy morning rush-hour traffic.

Thankfully, Chris Young of West Orange, decided to make his way back to the location where he spotted the dog -- hoping that he was either rescued by someone or found his way off the small patch of grass which led to nowhere. Chris approached the Chihuahua and opened the door to see if he would jump in. No -- that would be too easy on this cold and rainy day. So Chris got out and with a beef jerky in his hand picked up the rain-soaked, emaciated dog who had a strong interest in beef jerky. Tanner sat in the back of the car munching on the first bit of food he had in a while. Chris then found his way to the Associated Humane Societies' Newark facility -- just off of Rt. #1 and #9 -- only a few miles from where this little dog had been dumped.

Tanner was emaciated, dehydrated and in need of TLC. He is presently being overseen by the Medical Dept. and will be enjoying a Spa Day soon. Thanks to your donations to our Res-Q Fund, he will be ready for a lifetime of love.

For more information on Tanner, call the AHS at 973-824-7080 or e-mail us and refer to File 130433-M.
