Sasha - ShihTzu Puppy - Has Liver Problems



Handicapped or special needs orphans have a special place in our heart. They are just as needy as all of the "normal" homeless animals waiting a lifetime of love. Some of these handicapped animals are much needier and the future may appear bleak, but we will try to give them the very best that life has to offer.

Sasha is a 5 month old Shih Tzu that was brought to the Society after the pup had been purchased elsewhere. When the owner discovered that the adorable pup had liver problems, he brought her to the Society for euthanasia. He had no funds and could not afford the necessary treatment or ultimate future concerns or decisions that needed to be made.

The young female dog needs to be on medication for awhile. Ideally, a decision must be made within the next several months about surgery for this condition. Surgery will cost in the thousands of dollars. Presently, she is a happy pup and who is deserving of happiness, acceptance and a full life. To that end, we will do what we can to make that happen. Thanks to the Society's Patrick Res-Q Fund, she has started on medication and we will follow our veterinarian's advice as to what the future will hold.

As with Sasha, the Society will go that extra mile for any handicapped animal that comes through our doors. If you are contemplating the adoption of a special-needs animal, Sasha is an armful of love with a very needy future.

Sasha is at the Society's Popcorn Park facility, located at Humane Way and Lacey Road in Forked River, just off of Exit 74 of the Garden State Parkway. The Society is open 7 days a week for your convenience. Phone: 609-693-1900, or contact us by e-mail. and ask about Sasha, File#L-20546-F

Sasha gets cuddled by Red Bank staff one last time before returning to the Society to continue recovering from her surgery.

UPDATE!! 6/7/2011 - Sasha the Shih Tzu pup has had a successful surgery at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital. Veterinarian, Dr. Morgan, (r.) and Lauren the vet tech brought Sasha out to be returned to the Society. A follow-up visit will be needed in two weeks. Our thanks to the excellent surgeon, Dr. Davis, who performed the operation and spayed her at the same time.

To help Sasha and the many animals like her that need special care, please donate to our Patrick Res-Q Fund today!
