One of the most clever canines to come through our doors is Frisbee, an Australian Cattle Dog. One night, several days ago, the Society was contacted regarding a loose dog walking on the side of the road on the NJ Turnpike, near Jersey City. The State Trooper contained the dog and one of our Animal Control Officers went to rescue the errant dog.
It is an Australian Cattle Dog that was brought to the Society's Newark facility in the hope that we could locate an owner. During his stay with us, we have found the most talented, intelligent, eager-to-please dog. He will catch anything in mid-air and throw it back. He will jump into the arms of our staffers, gives kisses, gives paw, sits, and may know even more commands. Someone put in a lot of time and training with him and he shares his love with everyone. Someone may be heartbroken because they are searching for this missing dog.
Since Jersey City is not an area we service, an owner may be looking in the wrong place. The Society contacted NJ12 and "Frisbee" has been on television several times over the past two days in the hope that someone may recognize the dog. There was no tag or microchip to help the Society reunite him with an owner. We are still hoping to find his owner. Failing that, Frisbee will be put up for adoption.
Frisbee is at the Society's Newark shelter at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, just off of Rt. 1 and 9 near the NJTurnpike. For more information, call the Society at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 114293 or e-mail us.
