The eyes are the windows to this fellow's broken soul. He had been left inside an abandoned or foreclosed residence on Corlies Ave. in Neptune Township. Complaints were made by some passersby concerning a dog that could be seen looking out the window.
The Associated Humane Societies was contacted and Animal Control Officer Kevin Rooney was dispatched to the scene accompanied by a Police Officer. It is believed that the house was being occupied by a squatter and left behind this sweet, endearing dog. As a result of his lack of food, he was missing lots of hair. A skin scraping for mange has proven negative. It is not known how long the neutered pit bull was in the house. He was in need of hydration, but there was no more water in the toilet bowl and no food anywhere in the house.
He was brought to the Society's Tinton Falls shelter and is quickly improving. Luckily, he has not had any life-threatening problems as of the result of his extended lack of sustenance. His life of isolation has ended and he now looks to us ... and to you ... for a wonderful new life. Thanks to the Society's Res-Q Fund, it enables us to help and give care to those in need of veterinary and medical assistance.
We call him "Corley"for Corlies Ave. where he waited for someone to rescue him. He is at the Society's Tinton Falls branch at 2960 Shafto Road, near the Rt. 33-34 Circle. For more information on a very sweet dog, call the Society at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us and refer to File 74200.
