Rubin - Tied to Apt. Radiator for 6 Years



The very thought of how animals are kept behind closed doors never ceases to amaze us. A very sweet, hopeful young Pomeranian puppy was put up for sale in a NYC pet store. Perhaps this young dog thought he grabbed the gold ring when a couple came in and plunked down the cost of the pup and went to what he imagined was a life of love and devotion.

But the couple worked all day and no time to housebreak him. "Rubin" was more of a troublesome annoyance. After he had his puppy shots, that was the last time the 6 year old dog saw a veterinarian.

To keep their home in an orderly fashion, the dog owners tied him to a radiator in a back room-- and it appears that is where the dog stayed for the rest of his days.

Luckily, they grew tired of this bothersome irritation in their lives, they decided to search for a rescue who would take in the dog. They eventually called AHS and we have welcomed this little fella who was somewhat apprehensive upon his arrival. He was given a spa day with our groomer who advised that he was badly matted on one side of his body.

He is in need of the love, acceptance and companionship that he never got from his previous owner. Rubin is at the Society's Newark facility. He will be neutered and then put up for adoption. For more information, call the Society at 973-824-7080 or e-mail us and refer to File 123944

A donation here will continue for AHS to keep an open-door policy in the towns such as Cranford, Westfield and Springfield where we no longer handle the animal care and control contracts.
