Gherkin - Left in Garbage-Strewn Yard in Freezing Cold

Somewhere in his past, he was an adorable affectionate pet that willingly gave his love to those who opened their heart and home to him.

Was he given away to a "good home"? Did someone find him & decide to keep him? In any event, this little fella was tied up on a chain in a debris-filled backyard. No shelter...no food...no water...in a bone-chilling Nor'Easter atmosphere when our Animal Control Officer answered the call. Thankfully, neighbors were concerned after the Newark apartment dwellers picked up and moved -- and left this most precious cargo behind.

Gherkin is the most captivating Shi Tzu dog that enjoyed a spa day with Sandy. Luckily the Associated Humane Societies was there to give this fella a warm welcome. This boy needs a boatload of love & acceptance after the harrowing experience he has been through.

Your donations help us to continue to keep our doors open.

For more information on Gherkin call AHS at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 28753. We need your support and so does Gherkin.
