In AHS Care, `Tequila' Gets Her Sunrise

Early one morning, this young pup with a dreadful case of mange had been left tied up outside of the AHS Newark Shelter. Even with the painfully irritating skin condition, she wagged her tail and gave kisses to a staffer who had arrived early and who immediately took out her lunch to share with the unfortunate waif. The pup became known as Tequila and developed the habit of wrapping herself in a towel so she could keep warm. Even now, she enjoys taking hold of the end of the towel and rolling herself up in it. To make it even more enjoyable, her caretaker puts the towel in a dryer for awhile.

Thanks to temperament tester Linda Goodman, we have found that this precious pup is crate trained and will wait patiently to go outside to attend to bathroom matters.

Even though she was deprived of love and care by a responsible owner, she loves all people and is friendly to other dogs. Once starved for love and food, Tequila thrives on cuddles and treats.

Tequila could be the poster child for the Society’s efforts in helping animals – even when it may seem a last-ditch effort. If you would like to share your home with one of the finest ambassadors of any breed, please contact us, call or visit, and refer to File N-72942-F (Newark).
