Chaz Lived in Junk-Filled Yard in Freezing Temperatures

Although we see the pictures, we see the conditions, we see the dog .... we can never see into the mind of a lonely, despondent soul that has given up all hope of having a happy life. We can never understand what they are thinking, living in a situation such as this one.

Has there ever been any joy in this dog's life? Has anyone ever cared about him or shown him any kindness or compassion? What went through his mind, being tied to a tattered cage in a junk-filled yard in freezing temperatures, day in and day out? We will never know, but we know that we can change all of that for him now. We know that from now on, he will never be lonely, he will have shelter, clean water and food, warmth, and people that care about him. Thankfully, this dogs story will have a happy ending.

He was found in a yard in Irvington, NJ by an Animal Control Officer that got the call from a concerned citizen in the town. When the ACO arrived on the scene, this poor dog just looked up at him with sadness in his eyes, but when he removed the tether from the dogs collar, the look of sadness changed to a look of hope and gratitude. The dog slowly got up, walked toward the officer, and went with him willingly to the safety of a warm van, leaving his sad and lonely life behind him.

The one year old Bernese mountain dog mix was brought to our AHS Newark facility, where he was immediately given a good meal, warm bed, and the assurance that life would be better for this dog from now on. He was named, "Chaz", and he is a sweet, gentle boy that is so accepting of all of the help that he is being given. We were able to provide this help for him thanks to the kind and generous supporters that contribute to our Res-Q Fund. To make a donation toward Chaz's care, please text ResQ to 501501 to make a $10.00 donation or donate here.

Chaz will be getting some much needed rest and relaxation at AHS Newark, then he will be ready to meet potential adopters that can offer him the good life that he deserves. For more information on Chaz, please call 973-824-7080 or email us at
