Boxer Pair Rescued from Chains and Abandonment



When Society Animal Control Officer, Chris Arana, was alerted to a dog on the loose, he followed the dog and by happenstance, it ran into the backyard of an East Orange residence.

Two Boxers were tied TO EACH OTHER on a leash which was fastened to the garage door. Their physical appearance indicated that they had not been given food or water .... and they looked with hope to this newly-arrived stranger for help. Luckily these two boxers were discovered or would have surely died a lingering, painful death.

Although it seems very sad that the BEST time in any dog's life is at a shelter, in the case of these two dogs, it is true! Protruding hip bones and ribs showed the lack of care given to these two sweet dogs. Cars on the property and a microchip indicated that one dog was from the Bronx, NY and one was from Plainfield.

Chained together, they have weathered and withstood the same abuse and neglect. The ties that bind in sharing the same mistreatment have instilled in them a strong bond for each other.

Harold and Maude, alert, happier and healthier after being rescued and cared for at AHS.

Harold the brindle boy is estimated to be about 3, and Maude, the black brindle Boxer, is about 5. When they were evaluated by Linda Goodman, she says Harold seems to possess a mischievous personality ... and a winning temperament. His favorite rawhide bone was readily shared with Maude. Maude has perfect dinner manners and takes treats gently. She shares her toys and even shares with Harold! Please consider this dynamic duo who are in need of a lifetime of love. There is still time to make their Christmas dreams come true! File N-87768-F (Maude) and File N-87766-M (Harold).

If interested in adopting this terrific pair together, please contact us for an adoption application.
