AHS Rescues Beaten Rottweiler- Now Named Jaws



It is a heartbreaking story of a dog that had to withstand horrific batterings by his owner. We try to imagine what he felt and experienced as he had nowhere to escape, and although he had tried to please his owner, he couldn’t run away from the pummeling and the pain. A tenant had previously witnessed the dog being hit on the head and face in an attempt to train him.

A resident of a Weehawken apartment building called the Police when he saw the Rottweiler in need of medical attention in the basement/boiler room of the building. The witness had previously seen the dog’s owner beating him in order to train him. When he saw the swollen head and the infected wounds, he knew action needed to be taken.

There was garbage and animal waste all around the boiler room and so the Police Officer confiscated the dog and brought him back to headquarters. The Society was contacted to pick up the dog. In the meantime, the Police gave the dog water and food which he consumed immediately. – no doubt this act of kindness may have been the first he experienced in a very long time.

He was brought back to the Society’s Medical Department where his condition was assessed. Some of the administrative staff dropped in and crowded around to see him. He was ecstatic to see caring and concerned people and we were astounded at his friendly, outgoing personality. The Rottweiler was given an x-ray and the veterinarians discovered that he had suffered two fractures on one side of his head and had two broken back teeth. He has been kept in our Medical Department and now knows that he is safe, treated kindly and will never feel hungry again.

The NJ SPCA has issued Summonses against the owner and we will feature a follow-up here on the web site once the matter has been adjudicated. In the meantime, we have a very sweet dog that we affectionately call “Jaws”. File 57862-M (Newark-Medical)

Jaws, after treatment, a much happier and healthier dog, waiting for a loving home.

Note-5/07: We have now added Jaws to our Share-A-Pet Program, where you can sponsor him and help provide for his care. Won't you be his friend and please consider sponsoring Jaws ?

Note: 5/24/07 - Jaws recently appeared in Weehawken Municipal Court where the NJ SPCA was to prosecute the individual who'd beaten the dog for cruelty.  Jaws was `evidence' against his previous owner and won the hearts of everyone in court. The man never appeared and a bench warrant has been issued for his arrest. It has also been found that Jaws has very limited hearing - this may have been due to the beatings, but if due to a previous condition, it adds to the tragedy of the dog's case -Jaws may have been beaten for failing to respond to commands he could not hear.
