Mistletoe Hopes for the Gift of A Home



When her aging owner was developing Alzheimer's disease, his dog became the victim of this progressive health problem. The sad situation resulted in the dog being left unattended without food or water for protracted periods of time. At one point, her owner put the devoted dog in a room by herself. When the situation concerning the helpless man 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 still waiting in the back room for an owner who would never return.

Above and to the right, Mistletoe's condition when she arrived at AHS.

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!

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.
