Rodney - Shot in Drug Raid



Poor Rodney. The male pit bull terrier was brought to the Associated Humane Societies after he was shot in the face by a suburban Essex County policeman during a drug raid. The terrified pit bull ran for his life and after a few days of tracking, the dog was seen in a patch of woods, Thanks to Orange Animal Control Officer Rudy Giordano -- he tracked him over a Saturday and Sunday and was able to capture him. By that time, Rodney was so tired and spent, that a leash was put on the dog and he came willingly.

He was immediately brought to the AHS Medical Dept. for care and surgery. Thanks to the Society's Res-Q Fund, we were able to repair Rodney's face and he has convalesced in our Medical Dept. for more than 2 weeks. Luckily, Rodney holds no grudges against the human race. As you can see by his pictures, his lip sags on the side he was shot.

Our temperament evaluator said, "He also let me examine his mouth and I noticed that his teeth were missing in that section, too. Rodney is strong on lead, but nothing that can't be corrected with a good harness and daily exercise. He is extremely affectionate and did not hesitate to greet all the visitors entering the shelter. Rodney proved to know the sit command and took every treat gently from my fingers. This handsome boy scored an A+ on his evaluation. He has no food or resource guarding issues and did not mind trading the rawhide for a treat. Rodney is estimated to be about 3 years old and is a gorgeous large boy. Why not come down and get some Rodney LOVE!!!" His file # is File 112796-M

Rodney is at the AHS' Newark shelter located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, just off of Rt. 1 and 9, near Newark International Airport, convenient to the NJ Turnpike and Rt. 22. The Society is open 7 days a week for your convenience. For more information on Rodney, call the Society at 973-824-7080 or e-mail us and refer to File 112796-M.

The Society's Res-Q Fund is sorely in need of more donations. This is a dedicated fund to help sick and injured animals in need of either veterinary care or specialized surgery at a veterinary specialist. Please help us to help them and make a donation today.
