Rudy 10 year old daschund needs a home!!


Meet RUDY, a 10 year old black and tan Dachshund that I rescued from the shelter in New York City, where he was found wandering as a stray! Can you imagine his fear? How he even survived in a big, dangerous city is just unbelievable to me.
Here's what we DO know, at this point:
He is about 10 years old (if not older). He is in good health. He had a skin condition when he first came in, that has improved with good care and food (and the nice grooming Club Member LINDA gave him, as a "welcome to safety" present!). He LOVES children, ok with other dogs and with cats. He works hard to improve his house-training skills, but needs regular walks and monitoring, to help him to improve here. Therefore, it would be best for someone to adopt him that would be HOME more than not, to get him on a regular schedule that he can rely on. He LOVES to eat (what Dachshund doesn't?), and enjoys his meals!
He loves to sleep IN YOUR BED! Snuggle-bug boy. Wears a sweater well, as you can see by attached photos.
Folks, he has fostered with kind members of our Club for the past few months.
He has been moved from one wonderful home to the next, through no fault of his own, but due to changing circumstances of each foster family. I WANT SOMEONE TO LOVE HIM FOREVER! PLEASE-can you help me find a family for RUDY?
He just wants someone to love him....
His follow up check-up will be taken care of financially.
I don't want to see him shuffled around again. He MUST find a new home no later than January 3rd!~
Please help, if you can! We can arrange a "meet and greet" with anyone at any time!
Thanks for considering Rudy!

Adopt Mistletoe, senior pit bull waits a year for a new home after owner neglect

When her aging owner was developing Alzheimer's disease, his dog became the victim of his health problem. The sad situation resulted in Mistletoe being left unattended without food or water for long periods of time. At one point, her owner put the devoted dog in a room by herself. When the situation was reported, authorities entered the premises and took the homeowner out for examination, care and hospitalization. A day later, authorities returned to the home and discovered the emaciated dog waiting in the back room for an owner who would never return. The very sweet but skeletal pit bull was brought to the Society's Tinton Falls facility. Besides her neglected state, she was found to have an ear infection, a swelling on the side of her face, lacerations to the face, cellulitis ... and a broken heart. She arrived on Dec. 23, 2009 -- almost one year ago -- and so she has been named Mistletoe. All of her physical ailments have been corrected and her face is always in the food bowl! We are not showing you her before photos. this is what she looks like now. Her personality shows a joy for life that is outstanding! It is our hope that Santa will have a special gift for her this year. File TF-58410-SF (Tinton Falls) Contact us at 732-922-0100 if interested in giving Mistletoe her home.

We're not sure how such a pretty girl got the name Ceasar, but she wears it well. She is now around 8 years old and has never known any other home than the shelter. How much longer does this sweet girl have to wait? This long time resident is such a love bug that just wants a home of her own.

She is great with the other dogs and will follow the shelter staff while they go about their chores. She is not demanding of affection but does enjoy the company of people and other dogs.

Adopt Gussie, 8 year old collie/shepherd never had a real home

Gussie came to our shelter as a puppy and was named Asparagus. She was adopted to a family as a puppy....sadly it would not be her happy ending. The family left her in the backyard, alone and isolated for a year. They brought her back a year later...complaining that she was shy and fearful. Gee, I wonder why? We made a promise to "Gussie" that she would never be neglected again. She has been at the shelter for the last 8 years. Although Gussie is safe and cared for, we think she now deserves a second chance at family life. We want her to know that there are loving people that will let her be a part of their family. Gussie is still a little reserved until she knows you, then she'll flop to the ground for belly rubs (she is a sucker for a belly rub!). Because of her past, we would prefer she be adopted to a home with another dog so that she feels comforted. Are you the one to finally save Gussie? email Gussie is a LONG TIME resident of our Virginia shelter and never had a real home. bring her home for the holidays!!

Adopt Holly, senior beagle mix, gorgeous coat, LONG TIME shelter resident

Holly is a long time resident that has never had a chance at home life. She came to the shelter leery of people and quickly accepted her kennel mates as her pack. She is bonded with the other dogs at the shelter and trusts the kennel workers. She is still very unsure of strangers. We can only imagine what her past life was like. Her only chance at a home would be a patient person willing to help her overcome her fears and help her learn to trust. The good news is she is food motivated (what Beagle isn't!). We do not anticipate this to be an easy transformation, and it would take a lot of dedication and work. She is eligible for our A.D.O.P.T. program (adult dogs offered professional training) where she could live with a dog trainer for up to two weeks to give a potential adopter the tools to help her acclimation to home life. If you are that patient person that can teach Holly to trust people again and have a resident dog, please give Holly a home for the holidays! email Holly is a long time resident at this Virginia shelter.

Adopt SAMMY, senior spitz/chow mix age 10 needs home

Sammy is a very pretty, fluffy lady around 33 lbs who is house trained, leash trained, and good with other dogs and cats. She was surrendered to the shelter by her owners due to allergies; they stated she is 10 years old, but she does not show her age. Sammy has seizures; and she has also exhibited some compulsive tail chasing and food issues. Shelter life is very stressful and intensifying her anxiety. These types of behavior issues are generally easily resolved once in a secure and loving home. Because of Sammy's age and medical needs, her chances of being adopted from the shelter are very slight. We need your help to find her a safe and loving home with an owner who has endless love to give to our fluffy friend. Liberty Humane Society. please contact for more information about Sammy. this is her link.

Adopt Daisy, adorable 10 year old female jack russell

Meet Daisy! This active senior girl (~10 years) entered the Liberty Humane Society as a stray on 10/6/2010. The first day she was a timid little pooch but after one day of hanging out in the office she achieved total diva status! She quickly became attached to those around her and showered everyone with affection. Once she settled into the office though, she became a nipper whenever anyone would attempt to leave her alone. Otherwise she never nips anyone. It seems that Daisy has some separation anxiety issues -- She quickly bonds to those in her life and just hates to see them go!
Daisy is a adorable, bundle of energy who doesn't let her age slow her down. This sassy Jack Russel loves everyone she meets. Unfortunatley she's quite wound up after being kenneled for many months and is hoping to find a place where she can spread her proverbial wings soon!
Daisy appears to be in great health and shows no signs of any medical issues. She could benefit from gaining a few pounds. She's UTD on her basic vaccinations, de-wormed, and appears housebroken. CONTACT: SNDAWSON924@GMAIL.COM. rescue help welcome!
