Heavily Matted Dog Freed from His Prison



When a Neptune, N J homeowner went into his garage, he found a stray dog that had taken refuge there. The Society’s ambulance was dispatched to pick up the grossly matted dog that resembled a chia pet.

Either this poor soul was abandoned there or he had strayed from a near-by home. Due to the massive amount of fur that imprisoned his movements, he could not have traveled far. He may have belonged to an elderly, incompetent or neglectful person who may be ashamed and humiliated to come forward.

The quiet, gentle dog was immediately transferred to our Newark Medical Dept. so he could be shaved and freed from his prison. He had been totally constrained; thick ropes of plaits of hair hung down around his eyes and blocked his vision and his feet were tightly bound.

After he had been totally sheared, the veterinarian discovered an old injury to a rear leg but it does not seem to pose a problem to this newly-recognized male poodle. We call the 5-6 year old fella Milton – the name of the street on which he was found.

3/19/08 - Good News! We are happy to report that Milton the Poodle was adopted!
