When a Newark resident needed a pet sitter, she called on her brother to care for Cuddles, the 1 year old Yorkshire Terrier. When she arrived home, she discovered that Cuddles' leg was broken when her brother stepped on the dog's leg.
The owner brought the young female pup to the Society' Newark facility. (above). She released Cuddles to the Society because she could not afford to care for the dog or for the medical treatment. The Yorkie has been at the Society since early October and although she is fine, she will always walk with a limp.
Cuddles has been evaluated and only feels safe when held closely. She gives gentle little kisses and enjoys snuggling in your lap. She likes toys andplays in a sweet, gentle manner. Cuddles is a lovely little lass in need of love and comfort and would do best in an adult home to prevent any rough play or mishandling.

Thanks to the generosity of donors to the Res-Q Fund, the Society is able to give the necessary veterinary care needed for the abused and unwanted.
Cuddles is just one of many, many purebred dogs waiting "a new leash on life" at the Society's Newark facility. Among the purebreds waiting for a forever home are Chihuahuas, Jack Russell Terriers, Sheltie, Beagles, Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Mastiffs, Rottweiler, Shih Tzu and more. New needy orphans arrive at the Newark shelter every day. For more information on Cuddle, call the Society at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 112957 or e-mail us.
The Society is open 7 days a week for your convenience.
