Apparently, this teacup Yorkshire Terrier was too bothersome to whoever had her and so she was placed in a plastic bag and abandoned on the tracks of the Long Branch Railroad Station. A Colts Neck resident saw someone dump the dog but could give no description of the individual or any other helpful information. The finder brought the dog to the Associated Humane Societies Tinton Falls Animal Shelter where she was checked out by the Society's veterinarian.
The emaciated tiny dog appears to be partially blind and needs to put on some pounds! There were no injuries or abrasions. We call her Shea and all she needs is the Luck O' The Irish -- a lifetime of love for this mature maiden who is estimated to be about 8-10 years.
The Society is offering a $500 reward for any information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) who abandoned this dog.
Please send a donation to our Res-Q Fund to help us continue our open door policy to help needy orphans that find their way to the Society.
Shea is not the only purebred dog waiting for a lifetime of love. The Society has Cane Corsos, Chihuahuas, Cocker Spaniel, Jack Russell Terrier and much, much more including some great mixed breeds.
For more information on Shea, call the Society at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us and refer to File 73526. The Society is located at 2960 Shafto Road in Tinton Falls, near the Rt. 33-34 Circle. The Society is open 7 days a week for your convenience.
LATE-BREAKING NEWS: The owner of this dog contacted AHS after seeing our reward offer on Channel 12. She had already placed a "Missing Pet" report with the local animal control agencies. Someone had stolen the dog from her yard on March 6th and she was cruelly dumped on March 10th. Pet theft is a big problem not widely covered. We are still offering a reward of $500 for arrest and conviction of whoever stole the dog and threw it out a car window at Long Branch Railroad Station.
