Guys I need your help. This dog needs out of this shelter and into a good home asap
This is Missy. Missy is currently in a shelter/sanctuary zoo in Forked River NJ because my grandmother passed away. My uncle was supposed to take the dog but he up and left for FL without telling anyone and dumped the dog off at the shelter. He left no vet records and didn’t even give them the dogs real name. They have no idea the dog was on medication and special food for her arthritis and they haven’t returned any of my emails. They have her listed on the site as a dog that loves people of all ages and other dogs. THIS IS NOT TRUE!!
My aunt went to visit the dog last week and said the dog was inside a VERY small pen and shaking. She looked miserable. Missy was originally abandoned by her owner with Alzheimers who left her locked in a bedroom for months because he forgot about her. She has abandonment issues. This isn’t what my grandmother wanted for this dog. My other aunt stole the dog after my grandmother passed and since then, the dog has been traumatized. My parents were able to track the dog down and get her, but she was extremely terrified.
No one in my family can take her. We all have small children or cats/small dogs. I currently live in Pittsburgh but I can’t have the dog transported here because I have cats and a toddler. The agreement was, either the dog got put down when my grandma passed or my uncle took the dog, or I helped him find her a new home. He dropped her off at a shelter before we could help find her a new home.
I’m hoping someone sees this and is willing to take Missy in so she can live out the rest of her life in peace. She needs to be the only animal and no small children.
I can have vet records transferred to you along with any information and pictures that we can find from when she lived with my grandmother. I’ve personally met the dog a handful of times and she really is wonderful. She would make a great companion. I would be willing to help transport if needed.
About Missy - Missy is 10 years old. She has arthritis in her hips/legs but she is super active and very sweet. She doesn’t like cats or small animals (even small dogs) and needs to be in a home by herself. She loves playing ball and is still able to learn new tricks. She loves belly rubs and was eating a mixture of wet and dry food. She’s super sweet and will give you kisses all day. But she does have some trust issues at first when it comes to you leaving her. Once she calms down, she is a great great dog. Here is the link to her adoption page
If anyone can help, please message me. If not, please reblog this post and spread the word. Thank you all!
This was my grandmothers dog. If you guys could signal boost this, I would really appreciate it
