This adorable Maltese pup was only a few days old when his owner/breeder brought him to the AHS Newark shelter as he had no use for this fella who had an extra leg growing near his tail. Due to his very young age, we have placed him in foster care with a volunteer to help him during the earliest days of life.
He is presently growing stronger and at some point, will be seen by a specialist to see if surgery is required. Due to his tender age, we will wait until "Snow Baby's" surgery to have him altered at the same time. Thanks to our Res-Q Fund, we are able to rely on contributions from our donors to help us with the unexpected orphans that are in need.
Snow Baby is just one of many purebred dogs awaiting "a new leash on life". Waiting at our Tinton Falls shelter is a Rat Terrier, Chihuahua, German Shepherds, Chihuahua, Shar Pei, Chihuahua, Labrador Retrievers, Chihuahua, Mastiffs, Rottweilers, Beagle, Lhasa Apso, Chihuahua, Shih Tzu, Cocker Spaniel, and oh yes, Chihuahuas!!!
For more information, call AHS at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us. The shelter is open 7 days a week from 9 until 4. Please stop in and see these great dogs available for adoption!
