Spartacus Hit by Car - Owner Surrendered



Spartacus was only 10 months old and put in a life-threatening situation by his owner. It resulted in the man bringing him to the AHS Newark facility. The owner said he was a `good dog' and listens well. So the irresponsible, negligent owner allowed the 10 month old shepherd mix to run loose in a parking lot where a car hit the dog. The Newark resident brought Spartacus to AHS because he did not have money to fix the dog. The staff spoke to the owner and encouraged him to sign over Spartacus to us so that we could administer the necessary veterinary care and find a loving, responsible family for this pup.

The owner was right: Spartacus is a `good dog and listens well'. But the pup did not deserve to be placed in a potentially lethal set of circumstances which resulted in the life of this pup hanging in the balance. Allowing a dog to be off leash so that in theory it reflected favorably upon the owner to prove the worthiness and training failed miserably.

The leg was injured so badly it necessitated removal. The area was painfully bruised and his recovery was prolonged. During the operation, Spartacus was neutered. The pup was given heat support and antibiotics to help in recovery. The Res-Q Fund is our emergency account which is always depleted. Sick and injured animals arrive on a daily basis that must be cared for. Many have to go to orthopedic specialists for corrective surgery. Your help is needed to continue to fulfill this effort. Please make a donation to our Res-Q Fund and help out.

He is convalescing in the Administrative Offices of the Newark facility and has found a puppyhood that may have been lacking in his previous home. His world has opened up to new people, new experiences and he would be a great addition to your family. Spartacus has a great personality and would be a devoted companion.

The Society is located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, near the NJ Turnpike and Rt. 1 and 9 near the Newark International Airport. The Society is open 7 days a week for your convenience. For more information on Spartacus, call the Society at 973-824-7080 or e-mail us and refer to File 122385-M
