Somewhere in his past, he was an adorable affectionate pet that willingly gave his love to those who opened their heart and home to him.
Was he given away to a "good home"? Did someone find him & decide to keep him? In any event, this little fella was tied up on a chain in a debris-filled backyard. No shelter...no food...no water...in a bone-chilling Nor'Easter atmosphere when our Animal Control Officer answered the call. Thankfully, neighbors were concerned after the Newark apartment dwellers picked up and moved -- and left this most precious cargo behind.
Gherkin is the most captivating Shi Tzu dog that enjoyed a spa day with Sandy. Luckily the Associated Humane Societies was there to give this fella a warm welcome. This boy needs a boatload of love & acceptance after the harrowing experience he has been through.
